We were a little disappointed with the Insular. It' advertising over the web showed nightlife over the ocean at their pier property. However when we arrived we found that this had been closed for some time. The rooms were nice, and the grounds were well kept with lots of sculpted plants. The location right on the beach was also a... More

My family stayed at their hotel for two nights. Everything was great - the food, the room and their service. When we booked, they had an ongoing promotion and we got our room for a lot less, including daily breakfast buffet. Everyone was polite and when I ordered room service, food arrived on time and it was wonderful. I'd highly... More

Hotel staff are very friendly and accommodating. They can give tips on how best to go around city especially for newcomers. For some night cap, the coffee shop offers good desserts and excellent blended coffee.

Their breakfast buffet is superb! I was like eating like a queen! Their surrounding is filled with trees and plants, and the beachline is just so near. Really a staycation with nature with a twist of sophistication.

The facility is very spacious.Good property but needs renovation on rooms Better if you can renovate the rooms. Hotel bed promotes good sleep, but shower and bathroom facilities need to improve. Hotel people are accommodating and friendly. Thanks.

Last minute booking online. They have great rooms and service. Clean rooms. Internet was okay. Food was also good. Sadly I didn't get to use their pool or swim in the beach. For the price, it was well worth it.

I choose Water Front Davao expecting that this will be more family oriented hotel and will offer the best hospitality. I had 2 booking for 6 nights and both are suites. We only stayed for 2 nights and moved to another hotel. The front desk are not friendly and junior suite room is not ideal if you have toddler. But... More

I've been here just for a few hours and already feel compelled to review. Pros: the rooms are clean and the resort is spacious and close to the airport Cons: oh so many... 1.) check in time took a little more than 30 mins. Within which their own bellboy asked if we had gotten our room yet? Part of the... More
