San Juanico Golf Course and Resort


Gasping fresh air, glimpsing the majestic mountains and natural scenic, I’m enjoying all of these right now while writing this post. Yours truly is feeling lucky now for staying once again in San Juanico Golf Course and Resort, a vacation paradise in Leyte, Philippines.


The resort is situated in the north part of Tacloban City, Leyte and accessible with public utility vehicles. San Juanico Golf Course and Resort come with 18 holes manicured golf course surrounded by majestic mountain views of Eastern Visayas. They have complete facilities for several gatherings such as weddings, anniversaries, corporate functions and workshops. Actually, I’m checked-in, here in 5 days for the agency I’m working with is having a Regional Fiduciary Workshop of the fund disbursed for the community sub-project. As a Financial Analyst in KALAHI CIDSS-NCDDP (Kapit-bisig Laban SA Kahirapan Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services National Community Driven Development Program) a poverty reduction program of DSWD we do the auditing of fund disbursed by different municipalities which mostly conducted in function halls of hotels or resorts that can accommodate numbers of participants. So, I am here together with colleagues not for vacay but for work, which gives me a chance as well to share my thoughts on the stay, foods and services of the hotel.


Oops, enough of my side story, let’s talk more about the hotel’s food, stay, services and find the latest coupons and vouchers for the resort!

This golf course resort was established in the late sixties with 9-hole golf course and a small club house of G.I. sheets of less than 100 sq. meters by a congressman and his friends. Then in 1984 the golf course was abandoned for 22 years until a named Victor A. Domingo in year 2006, on his own rehabilitated the said place, and expanded it to 18-holes with a beautiful clubhouse, an impressive swimming pool, rooms and other amenities.

A highly recommended place. I love the scenic view that surrounds, fresh air, friendly staff, warm water of the swimming pool at night, and the function rooms for seminars and workshops. Actually, our team will be here again by end week of October for a Financial Analysts Conference. I suggest, add San Juanico Golf Course and Resort in your bucket list of places to stay in Leyte.
