Quiet and Beautiful
Pool and Breakfast
This hotel is wonderfully located away from the throngs of downtown Davao. Reaching other areas from the hotel is not difficult, either by taxi, which are always available at the entrance or by jeepney (perhaps not for everyone's taste). The room are as good as room get in the city, not as nice as in, say Manila. But that's understandable. Service is not as fast as one might wish, and they charge for ice brought to the room. The breakfasts were more than adequate, and one can either eat inside or out. The pool area I thoroughly enjoyed. Clean and with a nice bar attached for a cold beer. The view from the hotel is also very pleasant, Samal Island in the distance. The leaky ceiling vent, due to rain, was not fixed as quickly as I wanted it to, but they eventually managed to do so without having me change rooms.

i love this place
Nice people
If you're in Davao City and want to spend quality time and need a place to stay that you will enjoy the atmosphere of the local people, Waterfront Insular Hotel is the place to be. I totally love the ambiance inside the hotel, it was really relaxing as if you want to stay here forever. On the negative side, the nonavailability of WIFI in each room in the hotel. So far you can only connect if you're outside the room. But overall my experienced was really great specially at breakfast time, I love the food, I hope they can showcase more the taste of local food in Davao as well. The staff were great and scenery is fantastic. Next time I visit Davao City, I will surely stay here again.

nice place
nice food
i love the buffet breakfast it was really cool. I would recommend this to other couple who want a place to relax and unwind. We had a marvelous stay in Davao. Wonderful interiors, very good service and some excellent dining too, must recommend the hotel's Cafe Uno Restaurant for the blini and caviar and some exquisite salmon dishes. Very reasonably priced too for a luxury hotel. My only qualm was that the restaurant closed a little too early each evening."

Really disappointing considering it's a nice hotel
Waterside location, nice grounds
The room had mould on the ceiling which was worse in the bathroom. I can't really get past this experience to write about good aspects of the place - I would be hard pressed to return there. It's also a bit out of the way.

Beautiful Hotel with a nice setting
Food, staff, setting
i had a wonderful stay at the waterfront insular hotel. i found the positives of the hotel being the buffet breakfast offered was superb, plentiful and of a high standard. the other positive was the comfortable bed and the large size of the room. there is a balcony with a nice outlook also. the only fault with the room was the shower facilities, quite small and hard to move around. the staff are great too.

Courteous staff
Huge ground for walking/jogging.
We had a very pleasant stay. We love the hotel setting- close to the sea. No need to go out of the hotel grounds to do our morning and after meal walks. Also close to the airport and shopping malls. We were there to attend a wedding reception, and the venue was great. Lastly, hotel staff is very courteous and accommodating.
