An Escape from the City.

Away from the Noise.
8.7
the property has been carefully accoutered for guests who simply wish to sit around and relax or entertain clients and wedding guests. little outside the hotel will conflict with one's desire to escape from the noise of davao city life, unless a rather long drive into town is what one wants. staff exude a kindness so frequently which may seem unnecessary, but perhaps only to a westerner's ear. security is noticeably high. the pool is clean and large. ice brought to the room is not free. mattresses are very good, although towels are a bit rough and in need of an upgrade.
Nightlife Tip: One may travel to downtown to sample the nightlife and other restaurants.

Grand old lady of Davao

courteous/friendly staff, big rooms, sprawling garden, nice pool, varied breakfast buffet
8
The Waterfront Insular Hotel Davao can be considered Davao's grand old lady since it was the first high-end hotel in the city. Although old, it has been refurbished and maintains its gracious charm. My family enjoyed the spaciousness and service. We requested for adjacent rooms with a connecting door and were promptly accommodated. Breakfast was delicious and varied, with prompt service by the smiling staff. One thing that can be further improved on is the hotel's own website/email service since it was quite hard to book directly with them and they did not answer email queries. Overall, though, we would recommend this hotel.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Must sees are the Philippine Eagle Sanctuary, Malagos Garden and Samal Island

We stay here for the third year and everytime there is some emprovement,the staff is really professional and gentle,there are 3 restaurant )the rooms are big with a big restroomand 1 bar(pirata bar is really romantic,la parilla really elegant,and a little expensive and the pizzaiolo offer a really good choice of pizza and pasta and a terrace,even the building are not new they are really nice and clean.The real strenght of Waterfront is the garden with a big swimming pool and a smaller one for kids(and a Jacuzzi)with poolside bar service.Probably the best place to stay in Davao

Quiet and Beautiful

Pool and Breakfast
8.7
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.

Great rooms, beautiful grounds, nice pool

Comfortable bed, quiet room, good breakfast.
9.7
Returned to this hotel after one week traveling and was upgraded to an executive suite from a deluxe. The suite had a microwave kitchenette, but no utensils other than coffee cups and spoons. The living room had a dining table, sofa and chair, as well as a LCD tv. The separate bedroom was small but with corner windows had nice view of the sea. The bed was quite comfortable. The buffet breakfast was of excellent quality in a sunny air conditioned ding room.
Hotel Feature Tip: Great hotel for quiet relaxation. Far from the traffic and noise of the city, yet close to the airport.

Nice hotel. Appropriately rated at 4 stars.

Quiet and peaceful...well away from the main road.
7.7
Very nice facility but a little old and tired. Like many things in the Philippines it needs a coat of paint, but it is basically a fine location and a good choice for couples and families. The pool area is quite nice and the service is good, but the food poolside not so good. We had dinner at the Pirata Bar and Grill out on the pier (part of the hotel) and the food was much better, and a nice view as well. I switched hotels the next day because I had business to attend to in Davao City and the hotel is a little far from my clients. Given limited options for higher-end accommodation in Davao City I would certainly recommend the Insular Waterfront.
