    The hotel was nice.”

    The hotel was pleasent to stay in.one problem though was the aircon not cold enough even at the lowest level.and the breakfast buffet was much the same each morning. And we booked through agoda website and we where informed by the hotel that once you book through agoda it automatically books 2 single beds even though you've booked king size bed. Apart from that our stay was nice.

    We enjoyed the pool, and views”

    Enjoyable stay, we witnessed a nice wedding, and had a tasty lunch by the pool. The gym facilities are old and limited and the hallway of our block stunk really badly of mould. Otherwise, our room was okay, decor could be updated, especially the bathroom, but a reasonable good hotel for Davao all the same...

    Room has mosquitoes. Hotel is very old and poorly maintained”

    Pro - near the wharf going to pearl farm Cons - hotel is very old and poorly maintained. No wonder the room rates are cheap. The room is hot hence them offering us electric fan. The room has mosquitoes. If you are travelling with kids don’t book this hotel. I hope the management will make an effort to improve/maintain this hotel. Also, I hope they will take care of their staff. Some of them wear tattered uniforms and you’d know they are not happy by how they walk and greet (even ignore) the guests. I can’t help but compare them to pearl farm where most,if not all, staff are courteous and happy.

    I just expected too much”

    I am travelling with someone special and I gotta admit, the reservation was quite impromptu. I dunno if because we were booked a couple of weeks prior to arrival that the experience was not so good. I frequent Davao and it is first for me to stay in this place. It was convenient as it is near the mall and if you are going to Samal through Paradise Island, you can take a boat from Samal directly to the resort. The place is relaxing as there's good music in the lobby and a couple of resto's to feed your tummy. However, it is just disappointing that the staff at the reception area were not as accommodating as how it was advertised. They behaved differently to foreign guests and to visitors who were dressed up attending to several meetings and occasions scheduled during our stay. They treated those on dress down and backpackers differently. The custodians and groundskeepers were far better mannered compared to those at the reception area.

    Location was vary great. It is near the mall and restaurants. Staff are bery friendlyvand accomodating and great vlaue for money. The only downside is the AC.

    All in all this is a great place to take the family. Pros: Great swimming pool with lots of room, very nice staff, lovely ambience, nice pool side bar, easy to get a boat to Paradise Beach on Samal Island (which is ok) Cons: Beach isn't very nice at hotel and some of the hotel's restaurants (especially breakfast) are a little pricey.

    Although the hotel room was decidedly older than other hotels in the city, I love that it has maintained its elegance over time. I am happy with the spacious room and the excellent staff who made sure that we had a great stay at their hotel. The garden was well maintained and very lovely. I fully recommend this hotel for a relaxing bit of R and R.

    Home away from home. Great place to stay.”

    Nice, clean, very spacious room, comfy king size bed, relaxing outdoor boardwalk, tranquil view of the beach and trees and very accessible going to Samal Island as the hotel has their own wharf access for a boat transfer. It has a decent variety of restaurants downstairs to choose from. Every staff member and the guards I came across had a smile. I stayed here for my first Davao experience and glad I picked this place as my cousin recommended it. Overall was very pleased. I would love to return in the summer.

    This is a slightly older hotel with a two story low-rise style, set in large gardens right on the water, with white sand beach. Very quiet, good breakfast buffet and evening meals.

    The waterfront insular was once the best hotel in Davao, but now, it's she is really starting to show. Good for families as the rooms are big and there's even a balcony. Food for breakfast was decent. Needs a major upgrade. The housekeeping are not that good. When we checked into our room, the bathroom was tidy, but not clean. There were strands of hair on the floor and it's clear that the bathtub wasn't even rinse out since the last guest checked out.

    There's something wrong w/ the toilet and we were attended after 3 to 4 hours. Only to find out, information wasnt relayed proplerly. Thus, they have to transfers us to other room after waiting. Furthermore, i have to go out of room from building 3 down to the frontdesk to inform them again after waiting for 3 hours. I still need to call the attention of the hotel supervisor for us to be able to get attended immediately. Horrible for a guest travelling with 2 kids and senior citizen.
