If ADDU it would be Marco Polo, if high school in Matina, no hotel really that close there but that ones downtown like Grand Men Seng or Tower Inn.

I always stay at the Marco Polo Hotel, in front of Ateneo. I am extremely satisfied with this hotel.

They pick me up from the airport every time i go to Davao for a business trip. From the airport, I'd go straight to lunch buffet, i love the food. The rooms are really beautiful. The pool is okay. I haven't tried their gym, though. And i haven't tried their bar also, awkward kasi, i always travel alone. Which brings me to one point - the bed is perfectly comfortable. when I lie in bed at night, I can see the entire room (and myself as I lie in bed) from the silvery clear reflection of the floor-to-ceiling window. Too bad I always stay alone, the bed is completely wasted on me (* ha ha ha, pathetic me.)

Service is great. Checking in and out is easy. Their service vehicle leaves at least 3x/day for the airport.

When I went to Davao, I stayed at Las Casitas Inn. and beside is a disco where you can go at night. It's the only place in the city that doesn't close at 2am. It's at the heart of the city and walking distance to the Gaisano Ilustre.

Marco Polo for me, try to get a room with a view of the sea, the higher the floor you are in the better. Hassle lang pag smoker ka, Davao is strict in enforcing the no smoking rule

:) Hi peeps! which hotel or inns ba sa vicinity ng gaisano ilustre that has wifi access?

I already tried Hotel Galeria, Bagobo and inns around that vicinity about a year ago, during that time di pa kasi uso wifi.

next time you visit davao, just let me know para ma-invite naman kita for a coffee... or we can ask the Davao peeps for a mini-eb for you......

@john_locke - casa leticia and apo view have a wi-fi access

@pinoymale - madami ng resort sa samal island aside from paradise like costa marina and blue waters, try mo search sa net. half-day stay at samal is enough, then visit the other places mentioned by Doloy and kazuno.

Microtel Suites in Damosa is newly built. plus the area has lots of establishments so guests can have a nice time. It's also nearer to the ports going to Samal compared to hotels in downtown area.

rate is about 1thou or so.
