We stayed here November 2006 for one week. It had been a great bonding time for me, Ricky and the kids. We enjoyed our stay to the fullest. Only downside was the kitchen utensils, it was a little old and stained from overuse and the hotel check out was a little slow, their credit card swiping machine or whatever that is called, didn't work that time and Ricky ended up going out to get cash advance from atm.
Aside from those little hitch, everything went out great. Ricky would be coming over this month and he had opted to book this hotel again for our few days stay in davao before going to Pangasinan in July.
I recommend this place especially for group or family get together.
The best treat when staying here is the clean swimming which the kids would surely enjoy and also the FAB 50's bar, it is sooo cozy and the food is great that I would recommend checking that resto bar even if you don't plan to stay at Crown Regency. Most of the townhouse guest prefer to stay inside their units or to languidly swim in the pool so most of the time we had the 50's cafe to ourselves, and therefore there was no threat of being shot even if we sang "MY WAY" all through the night.
Ive stayed in marco polo several times and i must say that being an international hotel, it is comparable, if not better than other deluxe hotels in manila, such as the Sofitel, Hyatt, etc. Its rooms are for the well-heeled, and the food is great. It has taken great strides in bringing davao to the world, by developing local cuisine.
it has a great view of MT. Apo on one side, and a magnificent view and sunrise to the east. its perfect. Great fitness center and sauna. Cafe Marco has one of the country's finest breakfast buffets. Its proximity to the famous aldevinco shopping center and madrazzo fruit stands makes it an ideal location.
I will definitely recommend this hotel. The hotel staff are friendly. We stayed there before our trip to Samal Island. Before our flight back to Manila, we checked-in early and the staff were so accommodating they did not charge us for our early check-in
Looking for a place to stay when you are in a group of 12? Try Chateau Veronica Apartelle...it's like a home away from home. The place is ideal for people who wanted to cook for themselves. If you want fine dining, you can find nice restaurants in the vicinity of the area. The staff are also friendly.
Pearl Farm--on Samal Island, off the coast of Davao City--is an idyllic piece of personal heaven! :) The ocean was just an unbelievable shade of green and blue. And the weather--all through our 2-day stay--was too perfect, sunny and very breezy. The beach was just a tiny little thing, but somehow, the lounge chairs were the perfect place for a cozy chat or nap. Rooms, resort grounds and beach were very well-maintained by a very accommodating staff. Many of the staff had ready smiles and "good mornings". From the onset of our time with them at their Davao Marina, to our stay at the resort itself, our every request was promptly granted--i guess this comes with paying top dollar for the resort stay.
What my family and I enjoyed most about the resort is our accommodations at the Samal Houses, which are huts on stilts built over the ocean. From our door, we had a veranda overlooking the sea. At night, we would hear the waves lapping below us. The room also had an antique-looking fan on the ceiling. With the light breeze coming in from our veranda, it was just the thing for an afternoon nap! :)
I would like to promote ito VTers a place that feels like home and infront of a big mall here in Davao City. It is very affordable and you can cook your own food. If you plan to stay for a week or months you could actually save than staying somewhere else. No hassle on where to buy your food stuff since the supermarket is just across the road. If you feel like cooking you can do so or maybe just get those stuff from a food chain. You can have a view from your terrace of the main road and the mall. It is equiped with the comfort that you have at home.

I love this hotel. They have a gym and a pool, that you could just relax and enjoy your stay while your here plus they give you discounts depending on the length of your stay.
The people and workers are really warm and nice
This is the most unique hotel i've stayed at. I enjoyed all the art works & i highly recommend this place to anyone. Though the building's not new, hallways not so spacious, not very accessible to PUJs, but its worth it. I enjoyed the restaurant at top floor.
A pension that is already an attraction in Davao, with millions of pesos worth of art works by local artist, Kublai Millan (who also did the giant Durian sculpture you'll see upon arrival at the Davao International Airport). The first of its kind pension i have visited -- a very unique & artistic place you'll realize that nothing goes to trash with its artist. Visit this and experience a different atmosphere. To top it all, they have very friendly & accommodating staff.
It's best described as an inn. It has only but 20 rooms and that makes for the quiet and peacefull atmosphere. It would be rare to bump into other guests except maybe for breakfast (that comes free) the rooms are not fancy but really very very clean and comes with a fridge packed with drinks and goodiesas well ( not free).
Its in the heart of the city. The restaurant which is newly renovated has a comprehensive menu of pilipino as well as some thai and japanese selections. are all good value for money. nothing is more than 3 dollars and most are in the dollar fifty range. They have a web site just google humbertos hotel
I like that its quiet unlike most major hotels in the philippines that are so busy. There are only twenty rooms an so most of your requests are catered to quite fast. The restaurant is efficient the food tastey and cheap. its not far from anything. the big hotels are also near it. Humbertos hotel is situated in a quieter road. The hotel owner resides on the top floor so everything is in top shape all the time. It is ok to bring family here and again its very very clean
It's like staying in your own apartment. A two story apartelle, with your own kitchen, living room, 2 bedrooms, with TV and AC. You can come and go as you wish. If you wanted to go out late in the evening, you can always ask reception to phone a cab for you.
They have a good size swimmingpool with a poolside bar. They also have a restaurant.
If you can afford a bit more, aside from the Apartelle, they also have the Linmarr Suites
I think the best feature of this place is the privacy that you can have. No wonder whenever there are events in the city , the bands, some singers, or performers usually stay here.
Fancy staying on houses on stilts? Then this is the one for you. The calm, clear coral rich waters is directly beneath these houses. You have a spectacular view of the open sea as well.
These are two story accommodation that can be seen as you arrive here at the Pearl Farm Beach Resort. The crystal clear waters is just right outside your doorstep, plus the view of the sea and the not so distant Malipano Island.
These are the Malipano Villas of Pearl Farm Beach Resort. These are a group of 7 exclusive villas, on another island facing the main Pearl Farm. You can be ferried by the resort's own boats to and fro.
There are 3 bedroom villas ( max. 6 people) and 4 bedroom villas ( max.8 people) to choose from. Around this villas is a 3 hole golf course, a small chapel, a function hall, and of course the view of the coral rich sea. Not to mention, the pristine white sand that surrounds it.
Only 45 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of the city, is this quiet hideaway. This resort, managed by the Fuego group, is nestled in a 14 hectare area. Used to be a pearl farm, where white lipped oysters are cultivated for their white and pink pearls.
This resort has 73 guestrooms. I did not stay here, but i was able to view the different accommodations. My newlywed friends stayed on the Samal House. If you fancy jumping straight onto the water, then you can stay here. You have the fantastic view of the the coral rich waters all through out your stay as well.
For those who are into diving, not far from this resort are two sunken World War II Japanese vessels, that you can have a look and explore.
The Casa Leticia is cozy and its staff is very friendly and accomodating. The servers have this knack of remembering their guests even if they have just seen them once or twice. The rooms are comfortable. and for some reason, it's my favorite breakfast place. Although they do not serve buffet breakfasts, you still get the feeling that you've gotten what you've paid for. It's right in the middle of the city so it's not a problem going around.
Beside the hotel is a japanese and vietnamese restaurant also owned by the hotel's owners. They serve good food although a bit pricey for Davao standards.
