Nice looking Hotel
Your Pictures on your Website
as we arrived in the dark it all looked very nice. we where made welcome and the receptionist informed use that in twin beds i did said i booked a double she replied they will put the beds together, very nice on your honeymoon. the porter took us to our room and was very nice and helpful he wanted to show us the view from the balcony but the sliding door came off the rails he apologised and said he will get it fixed. the next day i told the receptionist if they can’t fix door i will want to be moved to a other room and they moved us to a other room , the sliding door were the same and the tv did not work ,we could not use the safe it was broken and the hand basin in the bathroom had no plug so you can’t fill the basin. if the hotel / room maintainers be as good like the staff i would say it’s value for what i paid but not like that . i think they should spend more money on repair and maybe on no smoking signes . we would not go to any waterfront hotel after this experience nor would i recommended.

One of Asia's grand old hotels
Large rooms and good service!
this is the fifth time that i have stayed at the waterfront insular in davao. the location inside a walled, guarded, park-like compound on the beach makes it truly special! you never have to leave the hotel to really enjoy your vacation! this is the only hotel in davao city that offers all of these advantages! the marco polo is right down town and as soon as you leave the premises, you are accosted by beggars and people trying to sell you junk watches, sun glasses etc. i totally ruins what would otherwise be a nice hotel stay. when in davao city, i will always stay at the waterfront insular hotel!

One of the nicest hotels in Davao
Nice Landscape and Free Breakfast
Nice place and on the water. Great pool. Food is good and staff is nice. A/C seemed a bit weak and the noise from weddings and parties can be loud and start early.

Nice hotel, but getting s bit dated.
The hotel grounds are beautiful, the staff friendly, and the choice of restaurants was better than we expected.
The only down side to the hotel is that the smoking laws in Davao are extreme. If you have a table umberella down, you can smoke, if it is up, you can't. Very difficult to police this, but it's not the hotels fault. The fact that it is a "resort" tends to keep you isolated from the city, and Davao is a really nice, safe city, with many good restaurants and watering holes to enjoy. It's definately best to go to the city with someone who knows their way around, and we were lucky that our friends took the time to show us around else we would probably spent all of our time in the resort and missed the best of Davao. The hotel is only minutes from the small ferry transfer to Samal Island, which is a beautiful place to spend a day swimming, relaxing, and generally hanging out with friends.

Very nice hotel with great pool for kids
The rooms are a decent size and the beds are comfortable. It it a "standard" tropical South East Asian decent large hotel in that there are blocks of rooms surrounding an area of gardens with a large swimming pool and number of restaurants. The breakfast was very good aswell with a reasonable variety of things on offer from the breakfast buffet. The man that climbs the coconut trees to keep them in good order is an intersting spectacle.
