Marco Polo Davao
Ranked #5 of 52 Hotels in Davao City
Reviewed July 20, 2013

Have just spent approx 3 weeks in Marco Polo having first stayed at the hotel in 2003. It is our first choice when in Davao and 5 years since our last visit as we are based in London. During that time the restaurant has been refurbished and the rooms are in the process of being refurbished/upgraded. The Marco Polo is the elder statesman of hotels in Davao. Very relaxed atmosphere. Staff are exceptionally friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Great pool out the back. Best located hotel in town. Thank you again for another fantastic stay. If you are in Davao for the first time stay here. Perfect for families,leisure or business.

Room Tip: All rooms good - rooms to front have a view over city and Gulf - rooms to back have a view over city...

The Marco Polo Hotel in Davao City centre is an excellent hotel. It is clean and well run with comfortable rooms and various resturants within the hotel providing a variety of choice for whatever the guest would like to eat. The staff are friendly and professional, there is a really good swimming pool, and although the hotel is not inexpensive, I think it provides very good value for money. The only down side is that it is situated in the city centre, a long way from the beaches or other tourist attractions. The Marco Polo Davao is very comfortable, and is highly recommended, particularly for people with business in Davao City.

Firstly, I must say a huge THANK YOU Marco Polo! It is the best stay ever!
My family was enjoying the whole stay of 10 days, Staff are the Number ONE asset of Marco Polo, so helpful, friendly and prompt! Being given for one night stay right on the spot, after checking out suddenly from another 11 days fully pre-paid non-refundable online booking hotel., was a pure bliss to have a room initially and then given to us the rest of our stay! Thank you so much!
Shall see you all again next year! xx

Booked room for 2 nights with my family. Had enjoyed the facilities. Good food indeed, breakfast is excellent. Though bit disappointing as there was no amenities provided for a kid. Not so bad for a value of money...

Room Tip: Higher floor gives the good view of the gulf area and mountain ranges

Booked room through agoda for 75 uk pounds and got a standard room - room was superb, nice bed great facilities - was like a superior room compared to a uk hotel. Staff great, breakfast fantastic choice, pool awesome and bar fun ( lots of tourists singing karaoke out of tune was interesting) but other bars if wanted quiet drink. 5 star hotel, good value room and breakfast included - bar bill was expensive but expected! As I said in the title of review we were so impressed booked 2nd night for some rest and relaxation before flight home - will definitely come back - chris :)

This is the hotel I stay whenever I am in Davao. I was among the first to stay here when this was opened. From then up to today, the quality of the property has deteriorated. Maybe because of age. However, the property is being renovated now, so hopefully the hotel will look and feel new once again.

A major contributor to its physical deterioration may be because of its own success in the convention business niche. The hotel is a favourite for government or private organisations' conventions. So very often if you need peace and quiet on a business trip, this hotel is not your ideal place to stay. There are just too many people.

Room Tip: The continental rooms are currently not available, I believe.
