“Great hotel in Davao”
Reviewed 19 June 2014 via mobile

Hotel is maintained well. Price is affordable. Linens are crisp, white, and clean. Rooms are spaceous and clean. Hotel is very accessible and nead to restaurants and mall.
The carpet needs cleaning. It has stains but at least not smelly.

Greetings from Marco Polo Davao!

Thank you for taking your time to give us feedback on your stay. Marco Polo Davao is indeed very accessible as it is located in the heart of the city. We have also taken action on the stains on the carpet. Thank you for pointing it out.

This hotel has been in davao for a long time already. It's good to see it is maintained well. Linens are soft and clean. Rates are affordable. Check in is fast. As the front desk noticed a longer line in their counter, they immediately processed others from different counters. Intially there's only 3 staff,then it became 6. That is customer friendly.
Carpet though needs cleaning....you can see stains but at least not smelly. I guess Ryan of dining service is already tired, his voice is not accommodating but he is able to give what we requested.

Huge, inexpensive, elegant hotel
Spacious, modern rooms with quiet and powerful A/C
Spa, swimming pool, massage (good, but expensive)
Area around the hotel not very elegant
Try the food stalls for local delicacies
Superb music in both bars

Iv traveled all over the world for many years and I look forward to staying in Marco Polo Davao. Its my second home now. When I arrive the greetings are genuine. Some times we travel in a bus for 6 hours and its so nice to arrive home at MPD. Our room is always ready and checkin is fast. Rooms are very clean and to my amazement everything works. Very quiet. Breakfast is fantastic. Love it. Room service is very slow but I give it only 3 out of 5. I stay here 4 times per year and will return. Thank You to all the Staff at MPD. The rest of davao can learn from you. Keep it up...... NBS....

We travelled by land with our kid and friends to Davao for a vacation, we choose this hotel because it has a good reputation.

We arrived at the hotel around 5PM, and the check in counter told us to wait for few minutes because there is no available room. Welcoming of guests is really bad... All of us are tired especially our kids.

Generator also failed during our stay and air-conditioning in our room is really hot.

Tune Hotels has more better service than this star-filled hotel. I won't go back to this hotel. There are a lot of new and better hotels in Davao.

*Checked in last May 3, 2014

Room Tip: you should try Tune Hotels. Service is a lot better.

I constantly visit Davao at least once a year since 2000, always on business trip and I have stayed in different hotels in Davao but the last 5 years I have constantly booked at Marco Polo, they have great rooms, a large pool and quality SPA, the food choice is wide with two different Restaurants, a buffet one which serves breakfast in the morning and a Chinese one with "a la carte" menu, food is not great as anywhere in the Philippines but of good quality anyway especially fish, rates are very affordable ones though the hotel can't be truly considered a 5* but rather a 4*

Stayed at the Marco Polo Davao supposedly for mu husband's business trip but made it a family holiday. Arrived at the airport at 6:30 in Davao where there was a help desk of Marco Polo hotel to arrange for shuttle service our driver was very friendly and helpful informing us of tourist spots to visit as this was our first trip to Davao. Upon arrival at the hotel front desk check-in was quick and painless. Our room was at 5k plus per night well worth it as it accommodated 2adults and 4 kids. the extra bed was put in our room we didn't have to wait that long. Room service was prompt. Room was very comfy room temp was able to cope with the heat from outside.
Marco Polo is also conveniently located to malls and gift shops.
Breakfast would fill you up to lunchtime there is a wide selection.
If i had to visit Davao again i definately know where to stay the Marco Polo highly recommended.
