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 The furniture used are outdated and...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

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

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.

It was really a nice clean hotel. When we were in our room already, we observed that there was a pigeon flying outside and as we went closer to the window to look at the scenery outside, we observed that there's a slum area at the back of this hotel. It was our first time to see a slum area... More
