Arrived for a 3 night stay to be advised the club lounge is being refurbished, but OK ... breakfast in restaurant on 2nd floor, afternoon tea in lobby lounge and evening drinks and snacks in Eagle bar. Had a cabana room which was great with easy access to the pool. All staff were friendly. I think the club staff had been deployed to support the service in the lobby lounge and Eagle bar and were very attentive.

However it definitely was not a club experience at all, the breakfast restaurant is like a zoo with a massive buffet catering for hundreds at a time, not at all relaxing and breakfast soon became for me just a 5 minute ritual to eat and go. The Lobby lounge was OK except it was not quiet nor relaxing at all as the hotel was busy with a load of basketball players staying with their entourages. The Eagle bar is a pub and again not a club experience.

I am 100% sure that in the right surroundings the club staff must be great and it must be a treat to stay there, sadly this was not the case on this trip, I wish I had been pre warned that the club was being refurbished.

Stayed here, Trained here, so know this place much! :) though i stayed 7 years and 2 years ago.

This hotel is a great hotel, very big and indeed have a strong management. almost everything here is following the standards, disciplined staff and good training.

From the hotel itself they serve good breakfast buffet in cafe marco, and this hotel can be considered professionals in handling events. The best restaurant though is the Lotus Court, especially on the day they have buffet im not pretty sure but i think during sunday, and they serve the national food of the Philippines (lechon) roasted pig favourite all time.

For travellers as my tip always choose the room ending with the even number, which is facing the roxas street overlooking the davao sea area, while if you choose the room ending with the odd number its facing ponciano street overlooking the pool and the mountains. Even number is better trust me. or if you really want to have the best experience here, try to book the presidential suite! and prepare to be amazed! :) having a jaccuzi in your balcony, on the 18th floor. now how is that. :)

Normal rooms are also wonderful, clean, and maintained :)

Room Tip: choose rooms ending with even number, and always choose higher floor rooms/

....from many different perspectives. It is 10 mins walking down the street from Gaisano Mall with many restaurants and movies. The best restaurant is Bon Apetit way up on the very top of mall.The staffing is excellent and always go beyond what is expected. The quality of the rooms is very high with only one small draw back, in that it is a shower bath combo with not really great power. in the shower. The bedding is great. Wifi in room is fast. You have about 100 channels of TV if you want to watch.You will sleep well. The restaurant has an excellent quality in the breakfast buffet...however at about $18 it is very expensive for the area. The pool is a nice temperature and there is always a lane marked off to do laps. The exercise/fitness room is of moderate size with a lot of equipment so you wont be disappointed . The business center staff is overtly friendly but it seems that management has deemed this a high profit center, so you a not-picked with costs. I have stayed there 6 times in last 6 months and will continue to do so .

Let me first say the service was impeccable. The breakfast buffet was diverse and plentiful. Getting around by taxi was effortless due to the staff. The room itself was small, but very clean and modern with ample amenities. The pool area was beautiful, but stay away from the pool restaurant the bistro. Lousy food and the server was hanging all over us making us feel uncomfortable. One complaint was renting a DVD. They charged $25.00 US a day. No weekly package was available. I would however highly recommend the. Marco Polo and would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: If coming from the USA bring new currency to exchange for local money. They only except new or close...

For a businessman's hotel, this is a great, clean and very comfortable hotel. The rooms are not too small, nor too big. It is just the right size. Also, they have been upgrading their rooms and they have become better and nicer. When we were there the last time, the safe in the room malfunctioned and they fixed the problem right away. We love the swimming pool, and the staff are very friendly. We also love their breakfast buffet, and their Chinese Restaurant is superb.

The ambience, the room, Café Marco, the spa and the pool was Amazing and even the View in my room is perfect. The hotel itself was good except for the service. I was really disappointed when the front desk staff looks like she doesn’t know what she is doing, it took my check-in procedure for 10 mins with all the ID’s and the signature she was requesting from me. And when I ordered room service, they informed me that my order will be ready in 20-35mins and it arrived in my room after an hour, thou the attendant apologies for the delay but they should have called and informed me beforehand rather I fall asleep waiting for my food. It was very frustrating; the hotel may have a 5star facility but they should have train 5star staffs as well.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pool or they call it mountain view is AWESOME!
