“I was pleasantly surprised with the relaxing ambience of Hotel Tropika.”
Reviewed May 29, 2011

I love the asian zen resort ambience of Hotel Tropika ; the large wooden windows allow good ventilation and lighting; the vibrant paintings which bring interest to the local coconut further pique the tropical feel . Room accomodation and overall service are excellent. The restaurant has good menu selection and delicious food. With my very satisfactory experience, I highly recommend this hotel to business as well as leisure travellers.

I stayed here twice already. Both for business. It really has the resort feel (fresh). Although it's far from the center, I would always choose to stay here. The rooms are clean and cozy. The staff is friendly.

We stayed in the Hotel for 3 nights! The bed is big and comfortable. Our 7 month old baby was provided with a baby crib. The staff were all very polite and friendly.

However, their internet connection cannot be accessed in our room. We had to go the lobby to get one.

Also, the towels were not as soft as I want them to be and kind of old already. Housekeeping is also not so thorough in cleaning. The used glasses were not cleaned and the floor mat was not replenished automatically and I still had to request for it . Housekeeping definitely needs improvement.

Overall, the experience was good.

A frequent Davao traveler suggested we stay in this hotel. The hotel can pick you up at the airport but to bring you back there will cost you. It is a three story (no elevator) building a hundred meters from the road. which makes it quiet and peaceful. It is a new hotel and I noticed that the garden is not yet completed and there are constructions going on. The staff is friendly and very accommodating. The rooms are not spectacular but tasteful, spacious and very clean with a small flat screen TV and 5 star super comfy beds. They have a strict no smoking rule in Davao so the rooms really smell good. There is a fridge but not stocked. there is a store across the street where you can buy drinks and snacks. There is room food service from only one restaurant which serves many kinds of food and drinks and the prices are good.. Breakfast is free and there are many good choices (there is no buffet). The restaurant has a small air con space and also an open air area where they have live music at night. Food has good choices and cheap are Asian and many are spicy so be careful. The restaurant staff is young, friendly and energetic. very good hotel and will come back and recommend to friends.

Checking in at Hotel Tropika was a breeze. With 4 children in tow, I was relieve that the rooms were comfortable and modern. The staff at the reception area were polite and helpful. Its great to point out that they were kids friendly.

The rooms were comfortable and the aircondition unit quiet. The bathroom was basic and very clean. One of the great things about this hotel is the nicely groomed and manicured grounds.

One of the great things about this place is the wifi connection. As an online worker, I have the need to be online constantly, and having convenient wifi connection is great that even my kids could surf the net using their mobiles. Great!

We had dinner at Aseya Cafe. Food was scrumptious and affordable. We love their tropical fruit drinks. The restaurant ambiance is quiet and comfortable. Dish variety is vast and the service was efficient and the place was kid friendly as well.

All in all, the stay at Tropika was cool and stress-free.

My wife and I were in Davao for business and were pleasantly surprised at the well appointed room. The king sized bed was huge and very comfortable, as was the pillow. Overall sleep quality was great. Overall the room and bath was well-planned and the owners paid good attention to detail. The service, however was very poor. The staff did not seem professional. They do not have proper uniforms and some were even wearing slippers. We ordered a simple fruit plate for room service. We were surprised that it had not arrived after 45 minutes. After two calls to the kitchen they said they were going to deliver it. After an hour, we cancelled our order and decided to eat somewhere else. I felt bad for the owners because the hotel is so nice and it should be complimented with excellent service. The overall experience is now tainted by the hotel service. Needless to say, i could not recommend this hotel is the service stays at it's current state.

Dear Sir,

Thank you for taking your time to submit your comments on Trip Advisor. We listed our new hotel on this site precisely to hear feedback from our guests and to help us monitor and improve our service levels.

I am glad to note that you were happy with most hotel arrangements. However, I would like to apologize for shortcomings in our food and beverage service, which had ruined an otherwise pleasant stay for you and your spouse.

Rest assured that we have immediately taken steps to address this issue and will continue to closely monitor food service to ensure that there will be no repeat of this unfortunate incident. Your comments on dining staff uniforms are well noted with thanks.

Again, thank you for your constructive feedback.

We look forward to serving you again at Hotel Tropika.

A cozy, quiet hotel with courteous, accommmodating staff. Rooms were very clean and well-maintained. Staff were all excellent, and promptly responded to needs and questions. Staff were not allowed to accept tips, which is very refreshing!
