Waterfront Insular Hotel Davao
Ranked #6 of 53 Hotels in Davao City
Reviewed 23 February 2010

This review is a little late, but i thought i owed it to the Waterfront Insular to wrtie it. I had a most enjoyable time there. Not so strict, they was like family to me. Very much helpful in what ever i needed, always greeted me by name ( i was shocked some of them remembered). Always went out of their way to do for me. From the front desk to the Vendors next to the pool. Even sometimes when i come back from a nite out, with Friends, maybe little laughing to loud, or not so proper going to the room. Never was nothing said. Food in the restaurant was great, service was great, staff was great. The price is not cheap, nor high either. It was well worth it. The rooms were great, clean, and air con was good. Quiet , easy to set around and enjoy, grounds was wonderful. For sure i would reccommend it to anyone....

I had a great first stay at this Hotel. Firts of all I love the place. Peacefull, relaxing, friendly staffs.. what more can you ask for, I just stayed few nights there but i had a great time looking around the hotel, Food was great.. two thumbs up for Chef. Food attendants were very friendly and accomodating. Surething its an old hotel but the employees around seems to never get tired. I had a great chat also with the IT person. I was having hard time connecting to the WIFI but when he came, he educated me things I am not aware of. hehe there were instructions on the voucher but i was never informed thats why he woked up around 10 or 11pm that night to help me. pool was great for me but for others its too deep. surely i will be missing the staff when I travel again and go to some hotels but definitely i will be back. hoping I can bring my family with me next time. ging ging thank you.. i remembered her name. ahm the bellman i forgot his name. the IT guy who laughs and smile a lot. and the one who replaced my pillow which had stains. and all the managers and owners of the hotel. Ill be back.

Good Bits:
Lovely Hotel Grounds
Very Clean
Friendly staff

Bad Bits:
Rooms a little bit worn out
Patio door locks don't work
The pool goes from 5ft to 10ft deep - not much good if you're not a confident swimer (there is a tiny kids pool for toddlers)
The restaurant on the end of the pier is very basic, it dosen't even reach cafe status in my book.

Overall:
I will be going back there for sure, you would do well to find a hotel with better grounds for relaxing in
