Chema's by the Sea-IGACOS: Away from the madding crowd

I was looking for a private resort in the Island Garden of Samal (IGACOS) for our Davao trip. While surfing I came across this secure and exclusive resort owned by a Davao resident, Quincho. Having read a couple of negative feedback about the owner, I still tried to contact him because the resort was very beautiful and I dont necessarily believe feedback written by people who ask a resort how much a cup of rice is. Good thing I did that because Quincho was very accommodating and a no-fuss owner. No deposits, no advance email...just a SMS to confirm was all it took to finalize our agreement.

Service: They only accommodate a select group equivalent to the number of cottages so you wont see swarms. We booked the biggest cottage good for at least 8 when we were just 6. I like it roomy, that's why. You'll be provided with your own private butler during the duration of your stay when you book a cottage so all you need to do is ring the brass bell and presto! butler service. :) Don't worry about your butler going on day off while you're there because he/she will stay until after you check out. You'll be welcomed with a buco drink, ripe mango shake or ice tea while waiting to be escorted to your cottage.

Facilities: Check the pictures and see how roomy, clean, and updated the rooms are. You'll see 2 queen beds, 4 single beds upstairs, 1 bay window lounge, and 1 divan in the veranda. 2 aircons and a cable TV for those wishing to watch TV instead of enjoying the sun. There's lots of greenery, towering trees, and brass/wood lounge chair sets. The infinity pool is deep but a bit small. Their beachfront is combed meticulously while the beach sets are roofed with nipa fronds. How rustic!

Amenities: Swing lounge, wooden/brass beach sets, complimentary WIFI, private boat/dock/pier in Davao city (via Davao's Waterfront hotel).

Notes:
1. The neighboring resort occasionally plays blaring local music.
2. You can bring in munchies like Oreos/chips/nuts but food can be ordered thru their outlet. I liked their Pinakbet (just a touch of salted shrimps), BBQ chicken, Sotanghon soup and Halo-halo.

I'll definitely recommend this resort for families travelling with small children, couples looking for some R&R, group of friends who can afford higher than average rates (but well worth it).

But if you're the type who lugs pots/pans loaded with food then this resort it not for you.

By the way, I paid around P14685(U$1=P44) for the overnight cottage and food (L/D/B/L).

Easy planning thru SMS.
Well maintained surroundings.
Butler service (Can also arrange for an island tour thru the multicabs).
Clean beach.
WIFI
Illy coffee while in IGACOS.
and credit card acceptance.

Not sure though if they accept CC's issued outside of the Philippines.

Soon, Quincho said he's building a spa near the cottages. :)

Ponce Suites: Davao's Unconventional Accommodation

Rooms have hot and cold shower and is a WiFi hitspot. Place is best recommended for artist and budget travelers.

From the front door up to the suites penthouse, in every nook and cranny is Artist Kublai Millan's showroom of his arts.

Hotel Elena: Hotel Elena: Middle End Stay

I stayed here from August 25 - 26, 2009. The service is very good, attentive receptionists and a helpful security guard. Very quiet and new extension wing. My room which was the Single - Deluxe can actually accommodate 2 persons. Cold Airconditioner and has access to the terrace. Ask for Room 212.

Although the water from the aircon dripped on the counter table...

Nice and relaxing!!

Near Pearl Farm and Marina Restaurant(one mini-jeep ride), Banok's is located at the back.

Gand Men Seng

Not as grand as its name implies but it is clean and located in downtown Davao within walking distance to most major structures in the city. Nothing special.
The sushi bar features fresh seafood but not too much variety.
