Marco Polo Davao

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I had not expected for a hotel to have metal detector to screen everyone entering the main entrance.

I will give the hotel a 3 plus rating. The plus is because of the nice personnel and the above average breakfast buffet. The bed is at best below average. When I sit on the commode my face is almost touching the wall, the bathroom is definitely too small.

This is probably Mindanao's premier hotel. It is not quite a 5 star hotel like other Marco Polos, as it is a bit rough around the edges. Ancient computers in business center, some of the furniture and room features are a bit worn and used. The breakfast buffet is certainly 5 star however...highly recommended. Good views from the upper floors. Executive Club had excellent complimentary snacks and drinks. Staff is polite and accommodating throughout the hotel. Pool area is fantastic, and my wife says the spa was five star and is priced affordably compared to other upper end hotels throughout the world. It is still expensive though. All in all, it was a 4+ star experience. Quite nice.

by far the best hotel in davao. Nice rooms, good value for money and superb buffet for dinner and breakfast

A great hotel for the city, the best there is. The staff were great, especially the armed security. I felt well protected.

I was disappointed with my stay here at Marco Polo. Many locals were saying this is a 5 stars hotel so I was expecting 5 stars quality. However, our room has a funny smell and the bathroom caulk was molldy all over the place, grossing me out. I'm very particular to the restroom so I didn't mind spending the money to make myself comfortable, but I was very disappointed here.

The Hotel was fantastic. The staff was friendly and the food in the hotel was superb

Great hotel and service. They only need to upgrade the rooms since new competing hotels are coming in Davao

This was my second time staying at the Marco Polo Davao. The hotel is what I consider first class with it's location, amenities, and staff. It caters to all people including business, families, individuals, and couples. My room was ok but the furniture was well worn and the bed was a little firm for my liking. Over all I enjoyed my experience and would stay at the Marco Polo again.

Well trained and consistent excellent service from every staff member I encountered. Food very good, well managed property in all aspects. One of May favorite hotels now.

everytime we go to davao we always stay in marco polo. The money is worth it. Its clean and the staffs are nnice.

I love my stay in this hotel. From the lobby to their rooms it's very clean. All the staff are very friendly. Will surely recommend this to others.

The Marco Polo is probably the best hotel in Davao (haven't stayed at any others in Davao, but have been told this by other travelers, and after staying there, I would surmise as much as well). It's a super nice place, with great, friendly staff and nice rooms. I'm pretty picky about where I stay, and having nice rooms is a must. The Marco Polo definitely has great rooms, and the pool is awesome as well! (looks gorgeous at night). The food and drinks served by the pool are delicious as well. Definitely recommend staying here.

Location is convenient, friendly staff, comfortable room, awesome breakfast!!!

Great stay again. Have stayed at this hotel several times now and it is the best in Davao. It is a bit expensive, but as always, you get what you pay for. :)

Great stay again. Fantastic buffet breakfast, clean room, friendly and helpful staff. The Eagle Bar is a great place to catch up with friends and have a few drinks. Although some of the bar staff need more practice at Karaoke :)

This was my second visit to the Marco Polo. The staff is what makes this a great place to stay. To say that they are very helpful would be an understatement. Although I must admit that i have had nicer accomodations elsewhere I have never came across a more professional staff anywhere. If you are a first time visitor to Davao they can help you in any area that you may need assistance. From transportation to excursions they can make it happen. Everything that they arrainged for me was top notch and very professional.

Experience was good. Staff was always considerate, friendly, and always provided a friendly greeting. I will stay there again next time in Davao.

Nice spacious rooms, comfortable beds...Nice friendly staff...warm atmosphere..view of city from the window breath taking.I would love to come back.

one of the better hotels in davao, in the city.
