Mergrande Ocean Resort
Ranked #51 of 53 Hotels in Davao City
Reviewed 31 December 2013 via mobile

The resort is not maintained at all. I have been here before when it was still villa victoria and the placed changed a lot.

Cottages were in a poor condition. The toilet is dirty, no provision of toilet paper. There is no door knob in the toilet so it remained open all the time. No phone in the cottage to contact for room service. One needs to visit the resto and order personally. Entrance to the swimming pool requires payment at the main entrance which is around 100m from the pool. Why not allow payment near the pool.?

Upon entrance it clearly said no "videoke" allowed but i was sleepless becAuse the nearby cottage occupants Were singing the whole night.

I dont want to waste my time here. I would discourage visiting this resort!

Stayed: December 2013

The facilities of this resort need repair. It also needs additional staff because there are really few who are cleaning the surroundings. The cottages also needs repair. The sink in which you are to wash your hands is very dirty , it has a lot of left over foods.

I was here with friends and I was amazed of the affordable rooms they have. Their rooms are clean. We stayed in the captain section wherein it is quite big and they have hot water showers. They have a nice pool. The place is secured. But there were no tv and intercom inside the room for an easy access to the staff connecting to the restaurant.

Room Tip: Room 220 at the Captain Section

My family and i stayed there in the month of July, they didnt have a lot of food in the restaurant because they said that there certain of food isnt in season so there wasnt alot of choices.
The place was divided in sections, we stayed in the CAPTAIN section, the rooms are quite big and i held a party in the restaurant and we rented about 4 rooms and approx 11 people could fit in the room.
There wasnt alot of staff to be seen and the women in the little tuck shop wasnt quite accomadating,
The value was in an ok amount it was that expensive even though their was alot of us.
We enjoyed the pool because their was a kiddy pool and an adult pool which wasnt so deep and because there was three slides, the basketball gym was big but the staff dosnt maintain the cleanliness

my wife's family and i just finished a 5 day stay at this "resort", while the rooms do have hot water showers and a/c they are run down with broken and missing window panes and are relatively easy to get into with a stiff plastic card and with only 1 person allocated to housekeeping we didn'talways get daily fresh sheets and linens. going by your pictues we automatically presumed there would be internet access but this wasn't the case at all. the paint on the villa statues was all washed out which strongly implies years of neglect, the mini golf has also been denied attention and is littered with fallen branches and in dire need of resurfacing as there are tears and concrete is exposed, the tennis courts are in need of new nets and cleaning, the kiddie area is dirty and unkept, the food service is very slow due to lack of personnel in the kitchen and in the dining area , the stream that runs thru the property is very polluted and strewn with waste, both karaoke stations were out of order last night of stay.
