“Top Notch Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

I only stayed a couple of nights in this hotel in Davao. The excellent service provided from hotel pick-up until the ride back to the airport was superb. I am completely surprised that they have first class service in this cozy hotel.

The rooms are perfectly clean. Huge bed! Mine had a view of the lawn where the sun streams in in the morning. You can just draw the curtains if you want to sleep more :)

The food is good and cheap. Even the restaurant staff of Asena (their in-house restaurant) are courteous and they never miss a smile. I prefer taking my breakfast al fresco (while the rest of the hotel guests dine inside the air-conditioned restaurant) because I like the warm weather.

Their concern for the environment was also a plus for me: from water conservation, to laundering the sheets and towels, to having your drinking water refill by the lobby.

If I were to go back to Davao, I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: They have no elevators which I didn't mind at all since I am staying on the second floor. They h...

I love this hotel and unreservedly recommend it. By Davao standards it is EXCELLENT.
The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Large beds, large wardrobe. The cleaning staff are thorough.
The staff i general are friendly and helpful. Not your usual indifference you get from Filipinos. They all speak English which make things easy. The Front Deck girls are my favourites. Jean, Bel, Yvonne and Sheena. One of them is always available 24 hours for assistance.
Breakfast is fine...small portions but I suppose it is the Philippines.
Only a couple of issues.

There is no pool. They are building one but construction has not started.
Also the wifi is unrealiable. Cuts in and out in your room. It is good in the lobby however.
If every room had a modem it would be better.
And finally ...TV...needs to be large. You can't advertise 'flat screen tv' and then only provide a small 20inch thing. Would be nice to get more Channels too. But I am nit picking.

With a pool and really fast internet I give this place a 9 out of 10.For now I give an 8. Still pretty good. Especially for Davao.

Stayed for 12 nights with my family in this hotel and would definitely go back. Nice and quiet away from all the traffic noise with good sized room and comfortable bed. Very friendly and helpful staff and breakfast included in the price. It is also quite near the shopping malls.The only thing the hotel lacks is a swimming pool and i was informed that there are plans to remedy this. Would recommend the Tropika to anyone.

i was intrigued by the praises this hotel received both online and in person. so when i visited davao 2 months ago i definitely booked in this hotel. i booked only 1 night since im planning to transfer the next day to the hotel im used checking-in when im in davao.

i was wrong! instead of 1 night, i lasted 3 nights in this hotel :-).

the hotel is not that easy to find since you have to drive few meters from the road (a plus points for me, it made the hotel location "within the city but not in the city"). once you are inside the hotel premises as if you are not in davao. when i checked-in the staff are very accommodating and pleasant, making sure everything is done before i go to my room. the room service is good thinking my room is located far from the lobby. my room is very spacious, everything is in their and i got a good view outside. my bed is very comfy giving me a good night sleep. i cant hear the buzz of the city outside! the breakfast served at the Cafe Asia is good. Cafe Asia is very recommendable.

the hotel is just a minutes away to SM Lanang and Abreeza/Ayala Mall. my stay in this hotel is definitely not the last time whenever i go to davao...indeed this is my hotel in davao.

Stayed overnight with my family. The place is quiet and relaxing. Staff are polite and accommodating. Room is spacious, comfortable beds, with basic toiletries, bathroom is clean and has free drinking water. Walking distance to SM Lanang. Breakfast is included with limited choices. Great value for your money. All went well except for our breakfast, we have an early flight and arranged to serve our breakfast early, we waited for 30 minutes more before it was served.

Will recommend this place for those who wants to have a homey atmosphere, quiet place and attentive/polite staff.

Best band for the buck hotel in Davao, it includes a free pick up from the airport and is just minutes away by car to Abreeza Mall and SM Lanang.

Breakfast is also if very good also, the breakfast is plated during weekdays and there is a small buffet during weekends. Servings are generous for the plated breakfast during weekdays
