The hotel could've stayed true to its name of delivering a 5-star quality service to its customers. However, our group was definitely disappointed with the way the front desk personnel handled our reservation. We had to wait for almost 1 hour and we weren't checked in to our rooms at the designated check-in time because the staff was not able... More

The Marco Polo is an icon in Davao City. It is easily one of the most recognizable landmarks in Mindanao. PROS: - Its location is its most important feature: it is located at the crossroads of two major avenues in Davao City. Across the hotel is a university and a souvenir center. Fruit stands are just a short walk away.... More

We Loved the Hotel, excellent room spoiled ourselves with the floor to ceiling windows. The Buffet supper was one of a kind, my wife does not usually like Buffet style meals, she insisted we go again. The pool was a real selling point, outside, nice sun, great poolside service. We started our days at the workout room, very well set... More

Rating a Hotel is not just about the amenities. The room we stayed in was just great, all we could ask for, the hotel itself was wonderful & i totally recommend the "Deck" - the Pool area & bar. The staff simply could not be more helpful & respectful ~ its a pity some of the guests didn't appreciate them... More

We stayed several days in this hotel in November 2013. Overall, it does a good job with amenities that are more difficult to find in this part of the world. However, though it is 2015 now, I noted in the past that there needed to be attention to smaller details. It is a nice property and generally well respected. We... More

Not a bad hotel, could do with some paint and updating though, The pool looks so much better in the pictures than it actually is. It might have once looked like that, but it doesnt anymore more! Food is above average, plenty of choice for breakfast (We didnt have dinner in the hotel) I would be happy to stay here... More

I have been going back and forth to this hotel for more than ten years already, as we hold corporate meetings there one to three times a year. My last visit was in early March 2015, and I noted that the hallway and bedroom carpets now look tired and shabby, as they seem not to have been changed for years.... More

Upon entering the hotel, security personnel manually checked my bag & was frisked physically/body search was done. Frisking is a city ordinance in this city before entering an establishment. But having also stayed at Park Inn & Seda Abreeza. I did not experirence this kind of horrible & scary security check. Its like a police checkpoint entering this hotel. Park... More

I really feel comfortable staying in this hotel whenever I'm in Davao. Maybe it's the courteous and professional staff at the front desk, the responsive housekeeping, or the attentive and alert staff in the lobby. On my recent stay, I was surprisingly upgraded to a premier room with free wifi with excellent connection. Upon entering the room, I was greeted... More
