When in Davao City, I always use the Royal Mandaya because of its location, clean room and sheets, friendly staff and reasonable price. Ask for rooms with the ocean view if staying at the 7th floor and above. It is a beautiful sight.

We stayed for a week and the overall experience was just pleasant. Friendly and accommodating staff, especially the receptionists and security guards who were most commendable. The only downside was the poolside bar that quite out of maintenance.

Very unsatisfied with the quality of the rooms and general state of hotel. Front desk was great but the room was another story. There was spilled wine marks, fuzz, and glitter on our our carpet upon arrival. It clearly was not cleaned. We were missing a set of bath towels. We had to request twice for them to get the right towel count. It was nice that they let us have a spare bed in the room, but if the room is dirty, it is dirty. Our wall paper was peeling off and the rooms are generally outdated and drab. Kind of depressing for a holiday :-( The pool was under renovation as well. It’s good that they are repairing and I would recommend this place for the location and the service. Breakfast looks good! However, the rooms should be kept sparkling clean until they are done with construction if they want to keep their brand image.

This hotel was a pleasant surprise for our family. I chose this hotel for its location/convenience - we were attending a wedding and it had to be near the church and the wedding reception. We did not know that we would experience excellent service in this hotel. The front desk personnel, the restaurant staff and the housekeeping department all went out of their way to make our three (03) night stay worth it. We booked three (03) rooms and one (01) room was upgraded from superior to deluxe just to make sure that all three (03) rooms were in the same floor and adjacent/across each other without any extra charges. They also allowed an early check-in of 9:30 a.m. for the two (02) rooms which was really good for our Eighty-Four (84) year old mother who arrived in the morning and who needed to rest. The food served for breakfast was fresh, varied and delicious. The waiters and chefs remembered our food preferences and we truly enjoyed the special attention they gave all of us. The housekeeping staff ensured that our rooms were always clean and even gave us extra water to drink. We would stay in this hotel again.

This was an exemplary visit in all respects. Efficient team. Large, commodiously designed room, great buffet breakfast, superb service at the restaurant, wonderfully long pool, I am an active swimmer and just need my 50 lengths night & morning, conveniently situated in a city full of attraction.

This Royal Mandaya Hotel is really nice and worth it the price that was offered in the Wedding Banquet Package with menu course, and so with the rooms that we booked for our family and friends was a great deal with the discounted rate. Super savvy in our ends. The Banquet event coordinator (Ms. Michele) and staff were accommodating and polite. So far the rooms were cleaned, and robes were provided as it was requested for my bridesmaids. The Junior suite room was what we liked most it's really nice, newly renovated, and big space for our wedding stuffs. However, that room is facing at school vicinity where there was a band rehearsal in the evening🤔 and in the morning 😬. I guess it just happened on that day the school had to have band practice. The window needs to have double sound proof glass for that. Still rate for 5 star inspite of that. We slept good though seems we had a whole day and we were all tired from that event. For the most to say, our whole family and quests liked the hotel ambience, and plus K9 security were on the spot. That was great. We felt we were safe and secure on that peak holiday in Davao. We would love to come back next time. Would recommend this hotel.

I m sorry to be so blunt. There is nothing good about this old and run down Hotel. Yes it is listed as three star but even then,expectations adjusted this place is run down and old and beyond basic. There are not many choices in Davao but a better choice is definitely the Marco Polo.

I had a pretty bad experience on the breakfast at the hotel restaurant. We stayed in the hotel from August 2-4 and occupied room 705. On my last breakfast at the hotel, I took the danggit and hours after I felt weak with nausea feeling and I could not eat. I had a doctor’s exam the following day and did several tests (blood, urine and stool) and results were I got amoebiasis. I am still under medication for the next 7 days. The danggit that I ate was not well cooked. I used this hotel way back 15 years ago. Now it needs refurbishments: room carpet is dirty and bathroom fixtures are old and cracking.

this hotel is located in the downtown area where it is near churches, restaurants, tourist areas like the People's Park and the very popular Night Market where countless street food are offered and this night market also sells "used clothing, shoes, etc" at very low prices.. the rooms are nice but "smells and looks a little old". breakfast is very good and staff are really courteous and polite.
