While Waterfront corporate rate is the lowest in Davao, rooms are very old and very tired looking. The renovated rooms are very nice. The grounds are still the nicest and most relaxing; only 4-star hotel w/ beachfront in Davao City.

Great value and friendly staff. Grounds are beautiful and secure. Room service was prompt and the food good. I enjoyed the breakfast buffet that was included. Security on the grounds was in view and made me feel safe.
