I really admire the hotel staffs. I believe most of them are locals, trained to compete with other competent staffs in big hotels and resorts. I salute the local staffs as they always try their best to be the best. Some of them may not suffice the expectations of the guests but A for effort. Even in wee hours in... More

Staffs are very helpful in assisting us in our stay. A very strategic place near the port. You can easily reserve a room via phone call without paying initial downpayment. Foods in their restaurant are good but you'll have to wait for 20-30 mins. Cable TV is not functional during my stay. Poor internet connection. :(

I'm from Manila and been exploring Davao alone for 3days and i really like this place. Rooms are spacious though needs a little renovation. Peaceful place! Maganda para sa mga nagmahal, niloko, nasaktan, iniwan at nag momove on. Hahaha this review is asking me to put at least 200 words di ko na alam sasabihin ko. Lol

My family and I stayed in Camp Holiday and we were given four rooms in total, two suites and two rooms. At first, I was reluctant to stay there as the hotel was near the wharf making the waters questionable and the website was not update. Upon checking in, I was pleasantly surprised with the place as it is spacious... More

If you are looking for convenience coming form the port, it is a minute walk. Easy access going to Samal island and vice-versa, it is also accessible to public transportation as well as a 24 hour convenient store right beside it. The room were big with king size bed. The receptionist were nice most esp. one of their guards that... More

You cannot miss this resort, you can easily spot is once you step out of the port area. They offered us a rate of Php2,100 that is already good for 4 persons which I think is really a good steal. The resort is also spacious and gives a really relaxing vibes. It has an indoor pool. Pool for adults are... More

I have been traveling around Samal and Talicud island and I actually enjoyed my stay here inspite of those small incidents. I stayed in one of those small cottages in the garden with cable TV although I missed internet in the room. There are 2 big pools around the area, one close to the beach is for overnight guests only.... More
