I stayed at Drifters Davao for 16 days. It is a small privately owned and operated apartel which includes a British style basement pub. The rooms are of an excellent standard being very large and spotless and some include kitchen facilities. Importantly the shower has good water flow and is actually hot. The staff are all friendly,efficient and can't do enough for you. My room cost only 1350 pesos a night and there are significant discounts for extended stays. Philipino and British/Australian meals are available all day at very reasonable prices and are served in the bar or your room or by the pool. It is located in the northern area of Davao close to the airport (but no noise) and near the beach and access to the Samal island resorts in a quiet upmarket residential estate.
I have travelled widely in the Philippines and would rate this establishment as one of the best value for money hotels I have found.
