    Astonishing Hotel

    The inn is very old and needs redesign but things work and anything isn't working or irritating like moo water weight, moderate web association is completely compensated by the location and the foremost brilliant staff. Food within the eateries is distant from 4* lodging standard but for the breakfast buffet (given you do not arrive half an hour before closing at 10am) but staff is so neighborly that you simply now and then disregard the nourishment is so disappointing. The pool has been overhauled since the final visit in April and the water is presently gem clear and secure for swimming. The ocean is outright not for swimming because it is contaminated by enormous cargo vessels passing the exceptionally contract strait between Samal island and Waterfront inn and the 'shoreline' is for no utilize due to contamination from the same so on the off chance that you need white sand shoreline you take the watercraft and a brief 10-15 minutes ride to Samal island and spend the day in one of their resorts there.

    Well Spend Holiday.

    The place was very relaxing gardens was so beautiful and peaceful. My partner and I enjoyed the pool under the sun and the clean water was well maintained. The food they were serve is a quite expensive but will satisfy you because its taste really good. Hotel front desk was excellent all of our request was done perfectly. A high end hotel with state of the art facilities. Every moment of our stay was excellent. Our room was not cold the air conditioning is not working properly. The television remote is broken and have limited channels for cable .the hotel security guard is quite disrespectful not accommodating. But still our stay was great.

    Old Hotel

    Davao's first 4-star hotel is located far from the maddening crowd of the city. Nothing beats the exclusivity and the aristocratic ambiance of this place. The room where we stayed has a beautiful view of Samal Island. It is also very clean and comfortable. The bed was too firm for me. The bathroom is already dated, but was spacious enough. Friendly and accommodating staffs. Food was great loved their breakfast buffet which offers variety of Asian cuisines. Dated room and facilities. The gym could be updated with bikes and body building machines. I found it weird that the television power was linked to the light switch, and if you wanted to turn it on, you would have to press the actual button on the television, not the remote. Bathroom facility needs a new fit. Shower curtain needs replacing and the tub is so small.
