“grandiose”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2012

with HOTEL TROPIKA, grandiose does not mean spending so much!

We have received a service more than what we have expected, thanks to MARGA and her TEAM! SALUTE from us! YOU made our night so SPLENDID. everyone loves the arrangement you have done for us.

To HOTEL TROPIKA, you should have more MARGA's, BOBONG's, DREW's for your team. they are so fantanstic with their duties.

from the bottom of our hearts, all praises to you guys!!!

for the restaurant team, may you have the same spirit with the TROPIKA TEAM. Please improve your service, great thing you have excellent food.

Room Tip: you ask for Ms. Marga, if you want ease with your needs!

I have booked room accommodation in this hotel last June 14-16 for our auditors and I am so happy with the services of their front desk especially to Jane & Lara. I highly commend them, they are so patient with my instructions even @ 3am, thumbs to you girls!!!

I haven't tried to stay in this hotel, but definitely, I will stay here with my kids for a leisure.

Room Tip: Avail the free one way airport transfer....

One would be hard-pressed to find a hotel with the welcoming vibe of a home, a huge garden with an installation of ceramic jars that doubles as a fountain and the amenities of a well-managed hotel. And to have this hotel tucked away neatly amidst tall trees away from the noise, smog and busy-ness of the city is a real treat. And then when you are ready to go back to busy streets and everything that constitutes a city vibrant with life, the hotel is just a a hop and a skip away from JP Laurel Avenue. The staff are welcoming and so accommodating. Eating at the restaurant is a gastronomical delight. I intentionally made sure that all my meals were taken at the restaurant so I could try each and every dish. Every dish I tasted, I was absolutely pleased with. This hotel is a must-see, must-go, must-experience. Reserve ahead of time, you must. The hotel is always fully booked because word has gone around. But go and experience, you must!

Room Tip: Reserve early so you can choose rooms.

Stayed at Tropika for 4 days. Had a great time there. Enjoyed the peace & quiet that the hotel afforded being a few meters away from the main road which most hotels in Davao does not enjoy. Rooms are spacious, sound proofed & cleaned daily.Front desk staff are courteous, helpful & friendly, same could be said for other hotel employees. Breakfast is included in all room rates.Great WiFi connection. Amenities like a gym or a pool could make it even better. Surely i'll be stay there again whenever im in Davao & will recommend it to friends.

Dear dexter_jardeleza,

We're glad that you enjoyed the quiet surroundings of the hotel, as well as the comfort and amenities of your room. We opted out of a swimming pool because of the hotel's proximity to Davao's beautiful beaches. We instead offer guests free shuttle service to selected Samal Island resort jetties.

Thank you for appreciating the efforts of our staff. They are there to ensure your pleasant stay. Thank you too for recommending us to your friends.

We look forward to serving you again at Hotel Tropika.

This has definitely been the best hotel I have stayed at in Davao, maybe even in Mindanao! The service was excellent, they were really patient with my numerous specifications with food as I was on the Cohen diet. On top of it all I loved the King sized bed! I slept great at this hotel.

Every time I go to a place, I check Tripadvisor to determine where to stay. Consistently, this hotel top the list. For my latest Davao business trip, I decided to check it out.

The hotel is located away from downtown (near km 7) and away from the main road (100m). It is also near the airport and a hotel with casino. It is relatively a "medium size hotel" that provides satisfactory service. The rooms are big (comparable to 5 star hotels in Davao, except for bath tub) with the basic amenities like cable TV, toiletries, ref, etc. Wi-fi is free and fast. Sleep quality is great and rooms are clean.

It is on top of the list within its category or class at a very competitive price!

Dear maia_cyliene,

We are glad you enjoyed the food we prepared for your friend's wedding reception. Happy too that you approve of the hotel and its surroundings. All our rooms overlook the garden where guests can go for a relaxing morning or evening stroll. There is also a small courtyard at the back where one can limber up with morning exercises.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We hope to welcome you again at Hotel Tropika.
