Maintenance and upkeep of room is clean and neat. Front desk and room attendants are customer friendly and efficient. Prompt service. However, you need to improve your selection and variety of food in Cafe Uno. Food served or offered is not value for money.

It was a bit disappointing because aircon is not that cold, pesticide spraying in the hallway was done while we were still inside the room. insect pests (cockroaches) everywhere. i think this is the reason why we got a "discount" during our stay here. all day and all night noise due to construction/repairs?

For those work loaded parents, no time to go outside the city to spend quality moment with the family. Waterfront Insular is a perfect place for family weekend. The experience is like spending in countryside destination in Davao City.

We had our first experience in 2009 with our wedding, and have come back with our two children in 2016. They haven't changed a thing, still the best service, best food, best staff and the most beautiful surroundings!

One thing that really bothers me is that there are no elevators in the hotel. I think this is the first hotel I encountered without elevators. To add, the stairs are so steep that it's very to trip over and stumble upon downwards. This is very troublesome especially if you have a baby. The hallway leading to the room looks... More

If I read the last 100 reviews about this hotel, I can only strongly agree with everything. These are the ups and downs of a run down old hotel. I have experiences with the hotel, its staff and its food since more then 30 years. Right now, after my last stay together with the German Ambassador to the Philippines, I... More

We stayed at this hotel when it was hosting a wedding, and even though there was a lot of commotion going on because of the wedding, the staff was able to help us get a room for one night, even though we hadn’t made a reservation. My daughter and I were able to stay in a standard room with two... More

Rusty water, cockroaches.

I checked in and they ended up canceling my reservations because their office did not notify... More
