I have been to Davao twice and each time stayed at the Marco Polo. The service is every good the rooms are clean and the buffet outstanding. I have stayed in the cabana room as I like to walk out my balcony and walk straight out to the pool. Staying in the Cabana rooms which are all on the 4th floor you have access to the club lounge which is great. The best coffee and snacks all day.During cocktail hour they offer up warm foods which are enough to get full on bypassing dinner. The staff are amazing and the view of Davao Bay is outstanding. Security is pretty good almost everyone gets a pat down and a bag check. Made me feel safe.
AS Davao is a non smoking city there are only designated smoking areas throughout the city and Marco Polo has an area right outside of the front entrance. Its a bit of a hassle but you can blame Duterte for that. All in all we had a great time the 8 nights we were there. Ask for the Balikbayan special you can save a bit of dough.More
