Great Location
Secure/beach front/ nice grounds
we stayed at the insular in 2007, we found the room to be exactly same as our last vist, badly needs upgrading,especially the shower/toilet area.the resturant was good, the people are very friendly, polite and helpful, the grounds and pool were also very nice

Wonderful hotel in a great location
Large comfortable rooms
What a wonderful hotel, great location, friendly and happy staff. We had chosen the hotel as it was the venue for our friends wedding, and as my first trip to the Philippines, was pleasantly surprised. My biggest plus point was that WIFI was immediately available, no password, no log in, just there, and not just in the room, whilst walking around the grounds!! My only slight moan is the anti smoking policy, not just in the hotel but throughout Davao, with only one smoking place available throughout the hotel. Would certainly recommend to anyone visiting Davao

Hotel with lovely ground and views
Swiming pools, Restaurants, Service
The hotel is set within large secure grounds just across the bay from Samal Island. The premier deluxe room was large with balcony area. The only negative point was that I didn't find the air-con very good, always too hot for me. The hotel has a kids and adult swimming pool but be aware that the big pool ranges from 5 to 10 meters in-depth and may be too deep for non swimmers. The restaurants on site serve excellent food but is a bit more exspensive than eating out so were usually quiet. The staff service is first class and they are very helpful, I couldn't believe how many trainees they employee. All in all its an excellent hotel were you can relax and use as a base to visitlocal attractions.

Best Facilities with no life or Atmosphere!
safety-secutity great-too much
if you want to overpay tremendously for room but want first class room then this is place. you will be bored to teachers and wonder how such a place can lack any charm or life with the facilty and location . the furnishings are grade a but it has nothing of lie or zest if you look to watch television and sleep only go here. oh made us wait in tiny waiting room for an hour before check us in-the television was not working and water empty. of all places i have been with agoda this was only place that did not seem to appreciate me!

Terrible Hotel
just nearby SM
The staffs are really not well trained and not even smiling and helpful. The rooms are also not well maintained and they only give less toiletries and didn't replenish my toiletries. The beach front I think is not swimmable.

A good location with exceptional grounds
Quiet location away from city center.
Located a short drive from airport and on highway for travelers from the north. No need to travel to city center. A quiet retreat yet close to shopping and business centers.

Very good customer service
Beautiful view of the beach when you wake up.
This is a staple in Davao City. A very relaxing place to stay with the family. And food here is excellent.

Quiet,great room and view
Really enjoyed the stay and would go back in the future..Good staff and great breakfast, location was fine and only downside not being able to swim in the sea due to pollution but the big pool made up for that....
