“Lot of modifications!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2012

It was two years ago since our last seminar held here. We were used to the facilities and services of this hotel from restaurant, to the rooms, to the function hall and even to the staffs, it was acceptable then. BUT recently, we just had our seminar for this year last March. And we were completely stunned for a lot of modifications in this hotel. They have extremely leveled-up to innovative heights. We were surprised at the competence of the staffs, not to mention how well-mannered and accommodating they were. They definitely not missed a beat. Kamayo Cafe was modified into a new atmosphere, cutting-edge and modern approach. We exceedingly adore it. The Newly Executive Rooms were we have stayed were constantly clean and very pleasant room. Coziness and comforts of home and more will absolutely experience here.

Royal Mandaya hotel: The best hotel I've ever experienced here in Davao City. The location is perfect for travel throughout Davao. Our room was very comfortable, clean and well maintained. The staffs were very gracious and polite. We will most likely visit again when in town.

I couldn’t imagine how excellent service I have experienced with this hotel. Every single thing is perfect. The staffs are very friendly. The food is great. The Junior Suite Room is very elegant, very comfortable to stay. My choice will always at The Royal Mandaya Hotel.

Last March 2012, I stayed at Royal Mandaya Hotel to witness Davao City celebrating Araw ng Davao, and I was so overwhelmed by the very heartwarming welcome shown to me by the staffs of this hotel. I was also surprised the way they celebrate Araw ng Davao. There were tribal dancers at the lobby and it was very fantastic. The Food at Kamayo Cafe is very delicious which is very surprising. Will come back next year.

We check in and the aircon is not working, its like a sauna hotel. It took 4 hours for them to ask us to transfer. The place is old and smells old.

The lobby has a very nice ambiance. No other hotels in Davao that has a perfect and elegant restaurant ever @ Kamayo cafe. I love the food there. Love to stay again at the royal Mandaya. I will surely recommend this hotel to all my friends.
