My favourite hotel in Davao City.
This is a great place. Good location - less than 30 minutes from the airport. Is located in a quiet residential area. Real nice feel about this place full stop. Nice places on the grounds to sit outside and eat or talk or relax. Has a small pool. The food I think is nice (really good hamburgers). The rooms are large and possibly the most comfortable beds I have slept in. Aircon is real sweet. Bathroom nice and nice hot showers. Absolutely love their television package. Reasonable TVs in the rooms, with one of the best Cable/TV packages I have experienced in almost 2 years of traveling in the Philippines. Premium Movies, and as an Australian the best thing is they have Setanta and Australia Plus - so I can watch both the NRL and Australian football. This is rare in the Philippines. They also have a sports/games lounge where you can watch your sport on genuinely large TVs. Only one negative. During my last visit their internet was not upto the standard it has been in the past. The upstairs wi-fi internet I was not able to access - the poolside internet was usable only some of the time. If they fix this problem in the future will be the perfect place to stay. This place is the place to stay in Davao. Much better than the so called fancy places like Insular Waterfront or places like that and much more reasonably priced.

Nice sleeper
this was our first time at Drifters - it's a nice little place to stay. The owner was very kind, and we loved her cooking - great food. Our son really enjoyed swimming in the pool. It's a little bit of a walk to the shops outside the gate, but they are quite close to the airport - we will definitely stay again. Family sized rooms are a real plus.

Repeat customer
I have visited many times in drifters even suggested to many others to stay. This last visit was less then expected, with added frustrations from the staff as well. The net was unusable in the evening, could not stay on long enough to have a conversation on skype, the room took hours to get cool, then the staff argued with me over my the fact that mu breakfast was not included, when I booked a room including breakfast. Then they wanted to say it only was breakfast for 1 included. On top of that we had to ask for our included juice with breakfast and then they charged extra for that because she gave us a canned juice. After i asked twice this is included in the breakfast? To say the least, this place has really diminished in my eyes. And not sure I will be returning now.

Great Place
quite possibly the cleanest room I have ever stayed in. well furnished with nice modern amenities that are hard to find in the Philippines. a bit off the beaten path but worth the little extra cab fa
Highly recommend this place for a nice comfortable quiet and secure place to stay. Very affordable too.

Second time to stay here;has gone downhill
No off street parking,but in gated community,Nothing comes to mind after that..?
First time we stayed here it was really good in the bar and foodwise as well as service.The room was basic and about the same but the waitress was really too busy playing with face book to serve us and even then brought out a cold pie...and we were the only two customers in the restaurant..

hidden gem
Safe. Quiet location. friendly staff.
Other than the occasional drop out in power (for everyone not just this hotel) can't speak highly enough of this place. Great friendly staff. Facilities and service are both well above the asking price per night. Value for money..
