“Highly Recommended Activities”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

During our 4-night stay in Marco Polo, I and my friends found not a single thing to complain about. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The beds (including the extra bed that we got) were very comfortable. The rooms are clean. The location is great... souvenir shops, church, and mall are within walking distance.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED ACTIVITIES
1. Night Swimming: A relaxing dip in their pool (depth: 3-5feet) is a great way to end your day.

2. Enjoy videoke/karaoke (singing) and a drink or two at Eagles Bar.
Videoke/Karaoke.... what to do: Ask their waiter for a songbook, a paper and a pen. Once you have the songbook, search for the song titles that you want to sing, write their corresponding codes on the paper, give the paper to the waiter, wait for your song, grab a mic and sing when your songs are played. The bar offers a wide range of liquors and cocktails.

3. Keep yourself fit. Fitness buffs will be happy to know that the hotel gym is well-equipped and that all guests are welcome to join their aerobic classes at no extra cost.

4. Don't miss their SUMPTUOUS breakfast buffet. We really enjoyed filling our tummy with continental and Asian breakfast choices.

Room Tip: Best view: pool view rooms (which also gives you a great view of Mt. Apo - the highest mountain in t...

My stay was only for one night. No complaints. The room was clean, comfortable, in good condition, nicely finished. Only one small issue, the hot water in the shower was a little difficult to regulate. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a good 4 star hotel.

Everything was a-ok. Check-in was a breeze. The rooms were good, it had sockets at the right places and the bed and pillows were comfortable. The view from our room overlooked the sea, while the other side showed the mountains. There was free wifi in the room, which was a necessity for me because I was on a business trip. And breakfast buffet was very satisfying. The hotel staff were also very helpful, they seem to know what you need before you asked them.

Room Tip: Don't choose room 1213, our companions were checked-in that room and they felt it there was a gh...

I have never had to complain about anything at this very well run hotel. My latest visit last week was as good as always. Like most hotels it is busier at weekends, which slows breakfast down a little bit. otherwise everything is perfect!

I have stayed at the Marco Polo on many occasions on my visits to Davao. If i have ever had a small complaint, it is always dealt with on my next visit with professionalism and grace. I had the most wonderful stay this time. The view from our room overlooking the gulf was simply magnificent (10th Floor) and the room was beautiful. I could not fault anything and I am pretty fussy. The bathroom was meticulously clean with amenities replaced constantly. Our hotels in Australia need to take a look at themselves and take a leaf out of the Marco Polo book. The Gym has everything you need (as well as dance lessons!) and the staff there are so helpful as well as knowledgeable. The swimming pool was perfectly clean and breakfast is to die for - fantastic. I hope others can experience the wonderful service we received.

Room Tip: For perfect views, i would recommend higher floors overlooking the gulf.

Rooms are good sized but a bit run down.

The breakfast, lunch and dinner buffet spread is excellent from international selection to local fares. Very good dining experience and friendly staff. Two thumbs up!

My executive lounge experience is also excellent. Friendly staff and excellent service.

Good location in the center of the city.

Overall, I would stay here again.

This is probably the best and most effective hotel in Davao.
It is located in the centre of the city and near Central Bank.
The rooms are modern and up to date,
The Gym is good and the pool is excellent. So is the adjacent restaurant.
Staff are very service minded, kind and polite.
I liked the hotel but for later visits changed to the more relaxed Insular Waterfront.
