The hotel is clean and comfortable, although I've stayed in more genteel Marco Polos. Still it's probably one of the most cosmopolitan hotels in the city. The staff are quiet, friendly and professional. It's perfectly located beside one of the city's most famous shopping bazaars so buying food and gifts is very easy.

Don't get me wrong, it's a nice hotel with beatiful reception, and nice ambiance and all. But the food? Please!!! I dont know, during my two visits, it has always been bad. But the rooms were fine, and spacious with a large bathroom.

The place looks decent although the elevator is old and a little slow. the rooms are ok and also old. The food is terrible. that napoleon tastes negatively different. Service is just fine. The location is perfect because it's right across the downtown.

We stayed here 3 times recently and would go back when on special or promo. Full price for better rooms was PHP 6,000 but a promo at PHP 4,000 was available for some days, including free airport shuttle and breakfast for two. It is getting older and showing it at times, but is comfortable - really is 3.5/4 stars rather... More

My hubby & I decided to stay at Marco Polo when we recently visited Davao City. In the past, we stayed at Apo View hotel and got disappointed! Our reservation thru Agoda.com included airport transfers and breakfasts. We requested a room with sea view which was at the 16th floor. But we were advised that they were all occupied. So... More

If your lucky enough to get a low cost deal on this hotel it is a great place to stay in Davao. It's getting a bit old but still a quality hotel with quality service. I had to spend longer here than I wanted too so spent a bit of time at the pool. I have to say the pool... More

This is a very grand hotel. Alot of top dining options... Could improve in the area of nightlife, bar was closed on sunday, nothing much to do after dark in the vicinity. Very comfortable, definitely should stay here for business trip. Additional feedback - room cable does not screen EPL football :(

Verrrrry helpful staff. Nice pool-you can do laps in, setting is especially pretty at night. Good and pretty spa. Rooms are really nice, some have a great view of mt apo and the sea. Food is ok, not great, not bad; room service has a much more extensive menu than cafe Marco or the lounge. We didn't try the Chinese... More

I liked that Marco Polo Davao have juiced celery and cucumber in their healthy corner section. The service is okay and did a morning dip in their Olympic size pool however the pool attendant needs to be consistent about swimwear.

I was expecting a lot from this hotel since it is a 4 or 5-star hotel, if I'm not mistaken. But sadly, I've stayed in better 3 star hotels. First off, on entering the hotel lobby, there was this intense flowery scent, much like when you enter a room in a funeral home, where there's a wake, and the room... More
