4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

This hotel is quite old but I still love their place because it was well maintained and the place is clean. You can enjoy the beautiful view of the ocean, there are a lot of plants and trees outside the hotel too. The food is tasty compared to other hotels that I have tried before.

However, the service management was awful. 1. Booked by internet 1 month ahead for twin beds, its was confirmed available, on arrival they said such a room was not available! Very disappointed. 2.

I have been here as part of a cruise in 1976 and four times more after that, attending conferences. The surrounding is a nice place to walk around, the personnel courteous, the food is good and reasonably-priced. Except for the TV set that was repaired six times while I was watching a suspense movie, everything else is okay.

The Insular Hotel in Davao is where my parents spent their honeymoon 50 years ago. It was THE one and only, premiere hotel from as far as I can remember up to the 90s. Today, the Waterfront Insular Hotel Davao has sparked a semblance of home among my teenage children who spent their lovely weekend, celebrating a family reunion. The... More

I love all the spaces on the Garden area, the pool area which my Family loved and had spend most of their time. The Views were Beautiful, specially from... More
