BEST VALUE FOR YOUR MONEY, CLEAN AND SUPERB SERVICES”

This place is close to the shore line and you can go and feel the breeze of the sea in a few steps away from your room. The hotel is old but well maintained and clean. The Staff were very accommodating and PWD friendly. They have their own pier at the back of the hotel where we where pick-up by the boat we rented for the whole day island hopping. We enjoyed our stay and could not find any reason to complain. We held our class reunion in this hotel. We came and left with good memories of this place and our classmates and family.

Home away from home. Great place to stay.”

Nice, clean, very spacious room, comfy king size bed, relaxing outdoor boardwalk, tranquil view of the beach and trees and very accessible going to Samal Island as the hotel has their own wharf access for a boat transfer. It has a decent variety of restaurants downstairs to choose from. Every staff member and the guards I came across had a smile. I stayed here for my first Davao experience and glad I picked this place as my cousin recommended it. Overall was very pleased. I would love to return in the summer.

Comfortable stay with mom ”

I had a comfortable stay with mom in this hotel. Staff were very friendly. It’s a perfect place to go away from city life. Food within the vicinity is a little pricey; might consider booking free breakfast next time or order via delivery. Will go back here next time. although aircon is centralized it’s very quiet, it’s just perfect for light sleepers like me.

Beautiful Hotel”

The place is beautiful though it is an old Hotel. Highly recommended for couple like us who is travelling to enjoy and relax. The staff were accommodating and helpful although I suggest that they find ways for their guest to be checked-in on time. The Hotel was fully booked when we arrived for this reason we were able to get our room at around 3PM wherein their check-in time should have been at 2PM. Their breakfast buffet is something to look forward every morning. It will really make you full for the whole day.

Stayed during our wedding anniversary. The hallway smelled of mold and they used a fan with deodorizer to mask the smell. Great staff, breakfast buffet was good. Nice beach view but cant swim. Location is convenient if you want to do a day trip to Samal. We didn't use their boat but opted take the roro from the Wharf which was cheaper. Fastfood restaurants (Jollibee, Chowking) are located outside the property.

We chose Waterfront Insular hotel to celebrate our simple wedding anniversary but the management has given us more than what we expected. The staff from the front desk Sir Jade made us feel comfortable. They have given us complimentary drinks, vanilla shake for my wife and durian shake for me. Not only that, they also had given us a very delicious chocolate cake. But what awe us the most was when we re enter into our room, because two of there room attendant was there and without any idea they actually gave our room a romantic setup. They were smiling but since we didn’t know what they were doing we gave back an awkward smile. (Sorry about that) but nevertheless we had a fantabulous (fantastic and fabulous) stay. Thank you again for making our stay extra special. Thanks so much also to Sir Jade for assisting us and for making our stay memorable. :)

Classic beachfront resort in Davao”

Sure there are newer places (if multistory hotel rooms are your thing). But the grounds and relaxation at Waterfront Insular are beautiful. Just being around all the coconut trees and immaculate landscaping when walking around the pools, beach and ocean are wonderful. The morning breakfast is essential to purchase ahead of time, so good and plentiful. Its great to be outside under the canopy there and just soaking in the tropical vibe. You can have drinks by the pool, wish they had live music though as it would be perfect for that sort of ambiance. The rooms are a bit dated, but so what is my opinion. Its part of the old school charm of this place. ALL the staff are so friendly, from the daily housekeeping to the servers and cooks at the restaurants. If you want to just take a walk for some fast food nearby is Jollibee, McDonalds and Chow King right outside the gated Waterfront complex entrance. Also a Choice Mart convenience store is there for beers and sodas and snacks nearby for chilling in your room. Vacationing is what you make it, this place can be a great time if you are fun and not super picky. Keep up the good work.

Worth the price”

Although the hotel room was decidedly older than other hotels in the city, I love that it has maintained its elegance over time. I am happy with the spacious room and the excellent staff who made sure that we had a great stay at their hotel. The garden was well maintained and very lovely. I fully recommend this hotel for a relaxing bit of R and R.

Never fails me”

Stayed in this hotel for 2-3 weeks before with my fiance and nothing much has changed so far yet being here again with a friend still feels like "home". My other half and I got engaged here that's why this place is so special and memorable. I'd say, I felt " home" again on my recent check-in with my friend. Will definitely recommend and return one of these days. Thank you so much Waterfront Davao. 😍❤

Honest Staff”

Waterfront Insular Hotel Davao, still amazes me after all these years. But what I would like to highlight in this review is the honesty of the staff, housekeeping in particular. Id been their guest last Dec. 14. Somehow Id left my old sports watch somewhere in that hotel. Called them after almost a month and voila! It's there. Small things like that could have been easily disregarded, after all it is just a watch but their staff are honest. I am now convinced more people in Davao City were truthfull and honest. Anyways, Insular hotel is a living witness to Davao City's metamorphoses from the old provincial hacienda to urbanized oversized barrio it is now today. I say oversize barrio because it seems like everybody knows everybody by 2 degrees. The hotel still commands romantic nostalgia of beautiful gulf front and tropical breeziness. You could actually lay back under its coconut garden on a spotless green. Food were excellent and varied. It is truly a great hotel for its value. Ive enjoyed my stay, tho it is business in nature, i did sprawled in tropic paradise.

Nice hotel”

This is a slightly older hotel with a two story low-rise style, set in large gardens right on the water, with white sand beach. Very quiet, good breakfast buffet and evening meals. A little out of the way, but only a jeepney or short taxi ride to the heart of Davao. Staff are lovely and the rooms are spacious. I would, for sure, stay here again.

Great view with good value for money”

The place has a great beach front view when you are at the pool side. There are no elevators since there are only three floors in the room, however, the rooms are spacious enough. Waterfront is one of the old hotels in Davao and it still never fail in its great customer service. Highly reccommendable.

First, let me compliment the front desk officers for their chic and very nice uniform. Next, I requested for meds, and one of the workers, Richelle, made it sure to find the meds for me. Such kind act helped in easing the pain. My salute to you, Richelle, and to Waterfront Insular Hotel Davao.

I stayed last 11Oct and check in around 9PM. I’d like to thank the gentleman who was in the reception that time. He was very helpful and nice. His customer service is top notch along with the other lady. Unfortunately i forgot to take their names. I love the swimming pool. I’ll stay in the same hotel for my next stay. Thanks
