“A Nice Surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

They have a good size lobby where they have placed a seating area where you can relax while taking advantage of the free Wi-Fi. Right beside the lobby is a coffee shop, and then the elevators. The personnel are all nice.

The dining area is outside of the hotel, right beside the pool. Their breakfast buffet is also good, nothing fancy. It has all the basics, but don't expect to see bacon. The coffee is good. They also have juice for the none coffee drinkers. The huge garden area is a nice sight while enjoying your meals.

We loved our room. The bathroom is updated. It has a tub (we did not use it though). The shower has glass doors. Our room was located at the end of the hallway and was bigger than the regular rooms. It had a king size bed and plenty of room to move around. The room was big enough to have a living room set. The LCD TV was small - probably a 27 inch. I would like to see a 32 inch at least. The small fridge was nice to have to keep our water bottles cold. The desk was also useful.

The pool area has tables with umbrellas. A nice place to have a drink or snack. The pool is a medium size pool. Big enough to get a good workout. The restrooms in the pool area are nicely tiled and a good size.

They have a security check point at the entrance to the hotel and they also post a guard at the lobby door. It made us feel secure.

One thing I would like to see improve is towards the back of the hotel area where there is an unfinished hollow-block wall. They have to finish the surface and paint it. Maybe put a mural of a sunrise scene or beach scene.

Room Tip: The rooms at the end of the hallway, towards the pool area, are the bigger rooms.

I was in Davao with work and I stayed here for four weeks and I have to admit, the staff, the area, the amenities meant it felt like home for my stay.

The food is great, amazingly priced and the staff are some of the nicest you're ever going to meet. I'd have no hesitation ever recommending the The Ritz to anyone going to stay in Davao. Even better if you've got kids as the pool area is pretty great too. And all enclosed in the private gardens.

When my wife and I arrived we were met by a very nice reception but were used to waterfront politeness nobody saying good morning or evening this was just 1 of 2 problems I had with the ritz, the 2nd was the swimming pool as during the week it is open to the public meaning maybe 40 children swimming and their families occupying the tables . But a great plus is the cleanliness of the room and the hotel restaurant this was 5 star I will be returning and would recommend to all thankyou again ritz hotel

We are a group of friends that was touring around davao city. I just want to write this review about the hotel to share the experience that they gave us. Location was perfect for us, because the nearest mall is just around the block. It was not a problem for us to walk because davao has a clean air. I have no words when it comes to the hotel, when we entered the lobby, guys in maroon uniforms opened the door for us, smiles and warm hellos, welcomed us. Front officers was pretty in and out, checking in was so smooth. Rooms was breathtaking the interior was modern. The bed is like magnet, it is so hard to get up in the morning, they also have a pool area, it wasn't a lapping pool but it was big enough to do laps. The restaurant serves Chinese and filipino food. The food was really really good, especially the seaweed roll, a must recommended appetizer. Did i mention that this was not a typical hotel you have to walk going to the restaurant and swimming pool. Which is inconvenient for others but for us it was like staying in a resort. All in all i still don't have the word to describe what i felt during my stay, but this one's for sure. I will definitely come back.

Their strength? The food. Superb! The quality and serving quantity are excellent, especially because they don't cost much. The coffee though is a different story altogether. It was consistently pale and almost tasteless.

The rooms are clean (and new) but the interior layout is weird: the sink is by the entrance, no covered cabinets for clothes (which is also by the entrance), uneven flooring (very risky especially if you wake up in the middle of the night and you need to go to the bathroom, you will very likely trip. I did several times) VERY, VERY poor internet and mobile signal!

WORST: One of the rooms' AC malfunctioned and water overflowed in the room soaking our participants' documents. This was reported to the management but they did not apologize much less offered a new room.

We stayed there for four days and four nights for a live-in workshop. The distance between the function room and the guest room is about 100 meters. They're not even in the same building. You have to cross the lawn and get yourself exposed in the heat of the sun (or rain).

The service crew - at least in the function room - were not friendly. I'm not sure if it was the hotel's policy but no one stayed during the session. You would only see them during meal time.

The location is not even that accessible but for us who went there for a workshop, it was ideal because it kind of discouraged our participants to go out often.

Room Tip: Rooms on the ground floor have better AC
