This was our second stay, three years apart. Sorry but no improvement!!
Room was not cleaned well. Sink was dirty, glasses were dirty, shower was broken thought this did get fixed. lights didn't work, beds did not have top sheets even after we asked a second time.

Room Tip: Stay elsewhere.

When I spent a month's vacation in Davao City in August, I stayed in Chateau Del Mar Resort & Spa. The accommodation and the service was top-notch, daily breakfast for 2 people were included, and they were very accommodating with special requests for additional bed(s) for my visiting nephews and nieces and brothers and sisters. It's ideally located near the beach so it was very convenient for long morning walks along the beach right outside the hotel. The owner and the hotel staff were very hospitable, polite, and very friendly. I would stay there again when I go to Davao in the near future.

There are too many signs of lack of maintenance in our room .We began to undertake minor repairs ourselves as the staff seems to have other things to do. It seems the main business plan of the hotel is to cater to large functions like weddings and parties etc The kitchen faucet is loose and water drains directly into the cabinet creating a strong smell of mould. The comforter has many stains on the underside. The good, the room is large and bright , it has a balcony overlooking the pool area and samal island.Also I forgot to mention the parties are very loud and go on long past midnight , we are heavy sleepers so we could deal with it. Its a nice hotel that is not too well managed and poorly maintained , the pool is often dirty the whirlpool is only turned on for the functions the staff are polite but we had to ask for housekeeping on our third day. Out front the main water feature is out of order and full of stagnant water, the patio bricks overgrown with weeds and suffering major decay . I cleaned my own room bought my own broom and toilet paper and it just seems to me that renting rooms is a secondary business for this hotel
