The hotel is accessible if you're coming from Davao City. You can take a van or a bus and get off right at the entrance of the hotel. The room is okay. Thin pillows, sheets and mattresses are to be expected from a 2 star hotel. I like the service here because the staff members are friendly and helpful. During... More

During the wedding of my niece's sister-in -law, this place was chosen as the reception venue. Great interior with a grand staircase, nice food, and well arranged hall. This is the usual chosen place for our colleague's testimonial party when retirement is due. I am looking forward also for a reception party here on the coming wedding reception of our... More

From the reviews presently on tripadvisor, it seems the best hotel in Tagum is the Molave Hotel. However, that was filled up, so I stayed here. However, I found this hotel satisfactory,. We particulaly liked the free breakfast buffet in the morning, which in itself greatly raised our appreciation of this hotel. We were ready for problems with the water... More

Front desk is helpful since i asked them to for a Masseuse and they complied with my request. Breakfast was really my favorite since they provide... More

After trying for one night another place to stay, I checked in at the Golden Palaca Hotel in Tagum City. Certainly worthwhile to spend a few words. It's conveniently located in the outskirts of Tagum City. I stayed in an executive room, simple because I want a window and not a room with 4 walls and no view at all.... More

The staff in this hotel are very helpful, the room was clean and well appointed. The food very good with traditional Philippine menu. The only downside is the plumbing, for a hotel as young as this the plumbing is terrible, impossible to set the shower at an even temperature, fluctuating from very hot to cold, I have some experience in...
