This accomodation is only good for the younger ones who love singing and the noice; for those on vacay who values serenity , this place is not for you as the karaoke goes until 1:00 AM on Sats and Suns.

If you need a place to have an overnight stay and leave for Davao city the next day, it's definitely the perfect one. Room is big enough and clean, restaurant food and beverages are good, staff is helpful. Though it's near the wharf, it's quiet inside it.

          Pros- The resort is near jetty port, so the place is accesible. Checking in was fast and easy. The room was spacious and has little balcony in it. There’ s 2 swimming pool, one is for check-in clients it was an infinity pool and other is for public which is also perfect for kids. They had a playground our kiddos really enjoyed playing. Restaurant and u can play billiard for 50 php. The sand in the beach is white and clean, the water is clear. The staff is friendly and helpful. Cons- I really don’t like the bathroom, when you go shower the water really goes in the the toilet floor. They only had one washing area, and it’s kinda far to walk if your cottage is near the pool. All in all our family really enjoyed the stay. And will surely come back!

          1. There's no free wi-fi 2. Food service will take >30 mins. 3. They want to charge me for corkage because I brought a laptop 4. You need to pay so that you can charge your gadgets. And take note, their charge is per GADGET. 5. I don't feel safe in the hotel because there are a lot of people coming in and out of the resort for a day tour. 6. The bathroom does not look clean.

          We stayed in a different resort for our first day of vacation which I regret. Camp Holiday went above and beyond to help us get transportation just to get out of the horrible resort which is Bluejaz resort. I wish we have stayed in Holiday Camp Beach resort in the first place. Super helpful staff and their infinity pool is heated. The beach is well maintained too.

          We had avoided this place for the longest time because it was right next to the pier. We thought it would be noisy and that the beach would be dirty. But it was the exact opposite! It was not exactly quiet but it was very peaceful. It was also very, very clean and all the staff exuded positive energy. They always smiled. Only thing we would change would be the speed of service for food. It took a bit longer than usual. Other than that, this place is the perfect getaway. We would definitely be coming back and we would recommend this to our friends. Thanks, Camp Holiday! :)

          The location is good since it's just beside the port. They also have infinity pool but if your looking for a beach where you can walk and play, this is not the resort for you. The beach is small,the sand is just like 10 meters and you cant even lie down to do some sun bathing..But the infinity pool is really good ,the water is not too cold and not too deep..it would be better if they have room service 24/7..the restaurant is only open till 11pm and opens at 6am..

          The staff, as always, were courteous. We were given cottage nearest to the front desk so Wifi access was somehow stronger. Connection is feeble so take a pocket-wifi with you or just stay in the lounge if you need to internet access.The room and toilet and bath are quite old but clean, bed was big, a/c functioned well.We needed hot water and we had to ask it from the restaurant who referred us to housekeeping and waited thirty minutes for the water to arrive.I think they will do better if they can provide an electric pot and complimentary water for the guests.The pool can easily get crowded with eager swimmers wearing cotton shirts and shorts. They are not strict with attire. The beach water offers a better option though.It was a pleasant stay nonetheless, away from the buzz of the city.

The resort turned out to be great . Restaurant worked well & food was good . Swimming pool is for checked in guests only so not crowded. This was midweek not over a weekend . We had a cottage which was good value although the mattress was not that comfortable . Would certainly stay again .

          The price is really cheap for the service that we received from this hotel. The staffs are very attentive to our needs. We loved their infinity pool since we're the only ones who used it. The room is so clean. The only downside is that it takes them long to serve the food you order from their restaurant but overall, we enjoyed our stay and will definitely go back to this place if we'll visit Davao again.

          This was my 4th stay on Samal Island, but my first stay at Camp Holiday Resort, which I booked because other resorts on Samal Island were full. I was pleasantly surprised. Camp Holiday Resort is a pleasant place to stay. In addition, it is located right where the ferry from Davao arrives. I especially liked the pool reserved for residents (there is a second pool for day visitors). And I liked the food.

          If you're looking for a convenient way to enjoy Samal Island with a certain budget in mind but wants to have a beach plus pool and easily accessible from the city, Camp Holiday is the place to be. Right after we arrived at the island, camp holiday is just beside the terminal (sasa wharf). Ferry fee is P10 and less than 2mins of walking to the hotel.

          The Place To Be In Samal After Days of Touring Davao”
          The best feature of the resort is its location being situated at the side of Samal Ferry Wharf where you can catch a ride from Davao City to Samal Island. Agoda offered us 2 room option, hotel room or cottage. We opted for the hotel room. The hotel was spacious and clean. It has a nice open air balcony that has a view of the beach. The bathroom was okay. It's clean & has water heater. The facilities of the resort was relatively good. Although, the beach as enclosed, it's considerably okay knowing it's beside the ferry wharf. The swimming pools were nice too even the infinity pool was not so infinity. The staffs were polite, friendly and very helpful. They even assisted us with our baggages going to the wharf. The resort's food outlet offers a variety of choices. Food was relatively okay. Food prices was reasonable. The only downside maybe were the lack of wifi and intercom system. It's also hard to ride the ferry if you are with kids and luggages but that's not about the resort
