Fantastic Ocean View
I like the expansive grounds with well maintained garden and grounds. The hotel is a little dated but quite romantic.
The conference room is big enough for our group but there was no accessible restooms. We had to walk all the way to the other side of the building. But I was impressed by their open air function hall by the beach which was a perfect setting for our cultural night. Since we had an excellent weather, the seabreeze added the perfect touch to the evening event. I can imagine this as perfect setting for weddings. However, food was not well presented. There seems to be a limited choice of desserts and appetizers. Since the waterfront is quite far from the city center, there should be a regular shuttle service for the guests.

It was ok
Peaceful, near samal island, yummy soups
It was nice, but didn't meet my expectations in terms of service and room accommodations. A bit pricey and was disappointed to discover that swimming in their beach is not safe since it's polluted. Nice view and surroundings though and just a few minute boat ride across to Samal Island where you can swim. Food is good.

Memorable beauty in quiet surroundings
Quiet, Comfortable, Romantic
This is a nice hotel. As far as hotels in Davao City it probably has the largest grounds – only those hotels on Samal Island have more. It was QUIET – hard to find in the Phils. The room was spacious and clean. Our room had a comfortable king bed. The CR (bathroom/W.C.) had hot and cold running water in the shower AND sink with good lighting for shaving. This is another of the few hotels in the Phils that do not shut off the power to the room when one leaves. There are the amenities expected of a ‘four star’ hotel; with an in room refrigerator/mini-bar, hot water kettle for instant coffee/tea, hair dryer as well as ‘complimentary’ toothbrushes, razor, shampoos, etc. The grounds are clean and well kept (generally), the pool is nice (and deep 10feet – 3+ meters). The ‘Jacuzzi’ does not have a heater – but in the tropics who really needs one? We only had three ‘issues’. There are some maintenance issues – the balcony’s sliding glass door lock was broken (next door also), the screen door was not properly installed; some of the beach cabanas visible from our room had rusty roof panels and holes in the thatch. The second included the eyesores of the beach cabanas, maintenance equipment hidden from view from the lobby but in full view of the ‘pool view’ rooms. Third, call me a pinchpenny – I expect a four star hotel to have high prices, and the mini-bar was no exception but a little excessive. 74 Pesos for 330mL/12oz Coke in a can (including taxes and service charge) at the bar seems a little excessive when in any grocery two liters is less than 45. There are no close grocery stores, but if one is staying for more than two nights or has children, the taxi fare is worth it. Overall – a beautiful stay with very good memories.
