I had some concerns when booking this since when going to Davao, the best hotels in mind are either Seda or Radisson (or before, Apo View). Being our first time to stay there, we were at least glad it's an actual hotel, with bellhops and a reception, function rooms (seems to be rather popular for events) and a buffet breakfast.... More

Checked in here with workmates last November as it was our official accommodation for our conference. I was excited at first since this hotel is among the more known hotels in Davao City since the 90s. The room that we had accommodates 4 persons and I found it quaint. However, a lot of negatives became visible after some time. When... More

Stayed in this hotel last February 2014 when I did some work in Davao. I somehow have a mixed review of good and bad. Here are the reasons why: Hotel: The hotel, in general, is okay. It's kinda old but it could still deliver although the lobby needs to be redesigned (in my opinion). The furniture used are outdated and... More

We booked and paid for this room online and came with huge discounts (maybe cause of off season) and stayed there for 4 days and have no complaints about this place. Buffet breakfast, Room service, Staff all great. Wifi connection was great but they reset the password and login details each day which meant that you had to see the... More

We stayed here for a 3day 2night business trip and it was quite okay. But if you stay here, please request for rooms in the new wing because they are so much better and more pleasant. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. The bathroom is also big. I love that their toilet... More

One of the things that is of great importance to me when booking hotels is the breakfast. Breakfast is the most important meal for me especially when I am on a business trip amd Royal Mandaya's buffet breakfast is simply awesome! It is comparable to five star hotels in Manila. They have a variety of food selections for breakfast and... More

A perfect vacation when I stayed at the Royal Mandaya Hotel. The rate is so affordable yet the experienced was extraordinary. The food at Kamayo Cafe tastes fantastic. The lobby area is very grandiose. Keep it up Royal Mandaya Hotel.

We stayed here for 1 night before an early morning flight... First impressions were great.. Checked into our room then headed down for a late lunch. The restaurant on the ground floor was great food and wine was great no complaints and reasonably on price. We went back to our room to relax only to find out that the wall... More
