“Just near my Lolo's house”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

Me and my family decided to try check in at this hotel. It used to be just "Garden Oases" which is known for conventions, weddings, swimming, and basketball of course. But when they transformed this to a hotel, we got curious. When I came back from Davao, I decided to bring my family here and give it a try. Yes it's the same old Garden Oases we used to know when we were young, but it gave us a different taste. The staff were accommodating. Lobby was exquisite and the rooms are spacious, clean, and breakfast was sumptuous! They improved their pool but they have to maintain the shower areas near it. I think this hotel has so much to offer in the future, an expansion maybe?

So modern and one of the best hotels I ever stayed in. I even had a view of the beautiful garden from my bedroom. We had a wonderfully relaxing stay at this hotel and room was very clean, worth every penny.

Room Tip: garden view, so relaxing

We booked with my family. The rooms were amazing it has unique designs and clean. The staff are super and location is excellent. It is very near to 3 big malls in Davao, just a walking distance. I got a pretty good price for this hotel. I would definitely go back to this hotel....

Room Tip: try their suite room, definitely beautiful with glass shower room.

Centrally located. Near shopping malls, public market and church. Literally safe as Davao is known.

This is no high rise hotel.It is up to 6th floor but the lift would take you until 5th floor only. (No, there is no room at the 6th floor only function rooms) We stayed at the second floor. Room is modernly designed and spacious too. But the housekeeping and room services should be improved. We asked for potable water but we were told to use the tap faucet, worst no pitcher was provided tsk tsk.tsk .....toilettries and complimentary coffee were good for two while we were three in a room.

I dont have strong feelings about this hotel, pro or con. Would I stay here again, most likely not.

Pros:
. Typical large hotel w/ many rooms. If you like to get lost in big hotels, this is one of them.

Cons:
. The staff appears unhappy
. The location is central, but that's not necessarily good. Not convenient to get taxis, and the area isn't good.
. The breakfast food is below average. I expect more for a hotel of this size.
. The beds are too soft. Difficult to sleep.
. The rooms are below average in cleanliness, the walls are dirty.
. The rooms need repainting.
. The rooms can get noisy on the wknds, as some students sometimes book rooms to party here. Very noisy.

The staff here will warm up to you , but you have to take the initiative to smile, say hello, etc.. But it shouldn't be like that.

If you can afford to pay for one of their suites, on the top floors, they are nice, but I don't think they are worth the money. When i say "nice", I mean better than average, not spectacular.

You learn to kind of expect "less" and get surprised and happy when something is better than "average".

When we reach the hotel we can feel right away that we are welcome. The place has a beautiful garden. The checking in was smooth, thanks to the beautiful & smilling front office ladies. The bfast included was good enough for the price we paid, but the rooms were more than we expected, it was better than the pricey hotel we stayed before. The coffee shop has a nice ambience & great hot drinks specially the dark choco.
Will make this hotel my home in davao. Life is really here.
