I picked this hotel from a guide book completely at random. I was therefore just expecting another run of the mill establishment with the usual standard tatty rooms located in what was claimed to be one of the most unattractive cities in the Philippines. How wrong I was.
From the moment we entered the hotel the staff went out of their way to make our stay probably one of the most pleasant I've experienced at any hotel in any part of the world. On arriving we were very efficiently booked in and our luggage delivered speedily to our room on the seventh floor. We had a few initial problems; for example the plugs on our shavers and tooth brushes would not fit the sockets.No problem at all for the staff who quickly produced British standard adaptors.
From then on our stay became better day by day. Room service was so fast that the food almost arrived as one put the phone down. Our room was beautifully serviced each day, a copy of the local newspaper was under the door by 7am each morning and the staff made a point of asking if they could do more for us.
The hotel possesses a number of restaurants including an sumptious dining room on the ninth floor where you can enjoy splendid views of down town Davao. However, the gem of the Apo View is it's barbeque seafood restaurant hidden away on the ground floor. The standard of their grilled tiger prawns and fish steaks was on a par with the best I have ever experienced in London, Paris and Frankfurt.
In all all it was one of the most pleasurable hotel experiences I have experienced in my many years of travelling the world. The Apo View Hotel is definately a quality establishment that can give the bog standard Marriotts and Hiltons of this planet something to look up to.
