Davao's climate is really hot on summer. I was billeted at Apo View Hotel where the company I am working for has tie-up.
Before you step inside the hotel, there are security checks like a dog sniffer and metal detector (I think). I felt really safe! When I got to the reception, it took about a minute or two to register. I immediately asked the reception if the room has free wifi, luckily it has. There was a doorman to assist you with your luggage. There are also comfortable couch
The hallway leading to the elevator is a bit far from the reception. You'll pass by Entree and a couple of stores before you can get to the elevator that will bring you to your room. I think in front of Entree restaurant, there's a travel agency.
Inside the hotel room, it has the following amenities:
cable tv (not flatscreen yet)
The room is squeaky clean and so as the bathroom. The TV may not yet be flatscreen but you'll be amaze on the hugeness of the bed especially, if you are alone in the room. you can also control the aircon temperature. The curtains are thick enough to bar the sunlight inside the room. There's a massage for P500 or $12 (43:1 conversion). I didnt get to see the pool though.
In the morning, I had my breakfast at Entree. I first went to the reception to get my buffet stub. The buffet offers a wide variety of breakfast from filipino to intercontinental. There's also a standby cook if you want omelette with different fillings. My favorite is their rice porridge with different toppings. It reminds of the porridge at Mabuhay Class (PAL). The restaurant's interior is quite dark though. But it is being offset by the lush garden just outside the restaurant.
From the airport to the hotel, it will not go beyond P100 or $2 (prevailing taxi rate). In front of the hotel is a Catholic Church. At the side are restaurants, there are high ends and offer buffet meals for as low as P127 or $3.
Apo View is classy and not too expensive. Single bed (corporate rate) room will only cost you P3300 or $77. Its worth every centavo! Would like to go back!
