In the heart of Tacloban City is a resort hotel strategically located atop of a Hill with overlooking view of the San Juanico strait. It was originally conceived by the former first lady, Imelda Marcos. In the early 90s the resort was closed for restoration and innovation and was reopened in 1994. It has withstood several storms, including Yolanda, and Leyte Park Resort Hotel still more or less maintains its original glory.

Eating Snacks with  a View

Aside from the breakfast buffet, Leyte Park Resort Hotel also offers Merienda Buffet every afternoon. Anyone can go there, and enjoy a sumptous Filipino snack. The snack bar is full of native delicacies to feast on.

My view while enjoying some snacks
We went there on a Sunday afternoon to grab a snack as we didn't have anything better to do. We had to wait a few minutes for the buffet to open as we went there a little early. While waiting, I opened my laptop and did worked for a few minutes.

The buffet is open from 2- 6 PM. We were probably the first ones there. People started coming when the buffet was open.

For around 150 each we enjoyed scrumptious snack and a choice of drink.

When we were already full, we went down to the pool area, enjoyed the scenery and took some photos. 

We went home still full, we didn't have to eat dinner. 

Veranda Cafe (the hotel's buffet area) or Leyte Park Resort Hotel has free wifi. So if you are a freelancer you can work their too while enjoying your food. However there was no power outlet so you need to have a fully charged laptop.
