“The Quality still remains 5 years later”
Reviewed July 13, 2005

My family stayed at Marco Polo on our trip to Davao this year and just as it was 5 years ago, it was a relaxing and pleasant experience. We flew into Davao from Manila on Cebu Pacific and saved our boarding pass so we stayed for the first five days at about half the normal price. Security has stepped up significantly since our last stay with all taxis being searched before being allowed to approach the hotel and all bags being searched before being allowed into the hotel. Also, men are searched for any handguns they may be carrying. Everyone doing the searches are extremely courteous and friendly so its not really an inconvienience. We left for Mati for 3 days before returning to Davao and tried to stay at another hotel in the city that was a little less expensive but I have to say the cleanliness of the hotel was anything but "royal". When we complained about the cleanliness of the room they suggested "why don't you go to the Marco Polo?"....so we did. We went back to Marco Polo and paid the regular price (about $80/night) but it was well worth the money. We had a nice relaxing last week in Davao.

I spent the third week of August in the midst of the Kadayawan Sa Dabaw Festivities at the Marco Polo. Sheer elegance with professional staff and all of the amenities one could desire. Beautiful changing nightly buffets or evening pool side dining. All the while the Kadaywan festival is going on just outside the hotel. The beautifully detailed lobby includes a cozy little bar named after the the Philippine Eagle with special events most nights. Also the lobby has a slightly raised quiet cafe/bar area with elegantly clad waitpersons that will serve you very good coffee in the morning and wonderful cocktailsor a good glass of wine at night along with light snacks or lunches while you listen to classic ballads by various piano bar entertainers. They seem to know by heart every love song ever written.

During the festival traditonal dancers and musicians filled the lobby area as well as traditonal tribal weaving demonstrations. The staff assisted me in arranging for shipping of the many modestly priced gifts available in the area. Can't wait to go back and I stayed a 2nd week after being enticed by an even better rate than the first week. Great security in room and on the premises with warm smiling faces. Mabuhay!
