The owners and staff are very friendly and happy to help. The pool and terrace area makes it easy to meet other people if you're travelling alone.
It's very close to the airport and also close to the boats leaving for Samal Island. My taxi driver from the airport knew exactly where Drifters was and I arrived past 11pm. I'd emailed to say I'd arrive late and the guard let me in.
The English breakfast and Filipino food I had there were both very good.
The room was clean and well equipped. Good wifi and no problems with electricity.
I wish they would relax their policy a bit on renting their motorbikes as they wanted me to stay another night before they would rent me one and were reluctant to let me keep the bike overnight. The owner did however help me find a rental place but it was shut and I ended up taking the boat to Samal island and renting one there.
I'll be back to Drifters when I return to Davao.
