LANTAKA HOTEL BY THE SEA @ 2005 (written 2011)

Lantaka Hotel by the Sea is one of the oldest hotels in Zamboanga City but remains as one of the landmarks of Zamboanga City because it has maintained its historical ambience and distinct local charm.

It is located in the Petit Barracks area at N. S. Valderoza St.Zamboanga, MindanaoPhilippines.

It is centrally located where you can walk to the City Hall, Plaza Pershing, Fort Pilar, Zamboanga Museum and the Paseo Del Mar (which was not yet there in 2005).

From Lantaka Hotel, you can see the Great and Little Sta. Cruz Islands, known for the pink sand  and its terminal is very accessible from the Hotel.

Basilan Island is also viewed from the hotel, especially, on a clear day and even at night, the lights from Basilan can be appreciated.

Here are pictures of the aerial view of LANTAKA HOTEL BY THE SEA circa 2005 by my Sony Cybershot DSC P-73, my first digital camera, which was a 4.1 megapixel compact digital camera with 3x optical zoom.  Although, it was a point-and-shoot digital camera, I was quite happy with its results. Even happier than what the present compact digital cameras give us now.
the vacant lot on our right is the present location of Paseo Del Mar
 view from N.S. Valderoza Street...                           
the island ahead is the Great (Big) Sta. Cruz Island
we can see the pool from this view 
there are now changes in the seafront area and renovations in the buildings...
love looking at the little bancas and pumpboats... no vintas this time!
There are now lots of developments in Lantaka Hotel by the Sea the past few years with plenty of renovations and upgrades. It is a place worth visiting... and staying in... when in Zamboanga City. By the way, here is the contact number: (63)(62)991-2033.

Mmmm...would be nice to take aerial photos of Lantaka Hotel by the Sea again!!!
