Have to laugh
Really am laughing at some of the negative comments on here, have you people ever been away from home before? Drifters is a warm friendly place, no where is it advertised as a 5 star hotel. Saying that, the rooms are clean and spacious, the place is very homely and more than welcoming, and your guaranteed to meet people who are normal, and make friends with. I say normal, but like everywhere, some people want everything, but not pay, and think the local people are below them, time for them to wake up to real life. Visiting Davao City, Drifters is the place to go

I booked a room by phone for 18 March 2017 for myself, wife and 3 kids as a break from staying at home. My choice being because of the British Pub and British food available. On arrival as my wife was looking at the room I noticed the pub was closed (it was 12.30pm and the opening hours stated 10am). I then asked if the pub was open and was informed it was closed and that there was no food available. On asking why we were not told this on the phone we were met with a shrug. We therefore left to find somewhere else. My advice when booking is to check if the pub is open and if food is available. Unfortunately I cannot give a rating other than the minimum.

I am writing this review mainly to thank Jean for her wonderful smiley customer service.She is always around to help. The place was nice and tranquil and a welcome break when returning from the city. The room we had was equipped with refrigerator,tv and cooking facilities.Nice and clean on arrival. Was a bit disappointed the pirates bar is not open,but, understand if there is no one there to use it. Cheap price for room and would certainly use again if the need arises. Thank you everyone there for our enjoyable visit.

My visit to drifters.
My first visit to Drifters was on Friday 11th November, me and my girlfriend was told about this place and when we found it, it was like being in a pub back home, i looked at the menu and noticed all the pies, so i ordered Steak n Kidney and Anna said what is the Chicken Mushroom like, i ordered it for her, that first bite of my pie was like heaven, the girl who served us actually makes the pies,those pies as we say Bert her in the Bristol wer gert lush, even Anna loved her Chicken n mushroom pie, also they sold cider. i will definitely stay here even if its just for a few days, and try all the pies on the menu, finding this bar made my holiday, thank you Bert.

Enjoy living amongst the natives and save a boatload of cash
Drifters Apartelle is located square dab in the middle of Nova Tierra, a gated community in Davao. It has 7 rooms, some with kitchenettes, spread over 2 floors. You can take your meals under a thached roof overlooking the pool, or in your room, or in the basement bar. They keep lots of cold beer in the frig and a San Miguel in a frosted mug tastes awfully good after a sweaty day of exploring Davao. The proprietor is also the cook, if you asked her nicely, she'll prepare a special dish to order. I love Filipino food, and requested several of my favorites. She used fresh vegetables and protein. I was amazed of her cooking abilities, and appetizing presentation. Your taste buds will dance with delight. Your wallet will not be depleted. In the Philippines, if you do anything requiring physical activity, you'll seat a lot. Not to fear, they have adaily laundry service, turn around is fast, and cheap. They charge by the kilo (2 pounds for you metric challenge foreigners). For a buck and a half, you can have 2 pounds of laundry nicely clean, folded, and delivered to your room. This is a gem of place, and an excellent value. You can reach them by taxi. And if you need to go to the mall, where half of the felippino population hangs out, they will fetch a cab for you. Or if you like to live on the wild side, you can rent one of their motorcycles. Is there any down sides? Yes, small things. The drain in my shower drained poorly. Using soap and shampoo with additives, like Aloa Vera made it worse. Just take a wad of TP and give it a good wipe. The roosters crow early in the morning around 4:00 AM, but you'll want to get up anyway, because it's the coolest time of day. Oh, yah, southern Mindanao is shared between Christians and Muslims in a mostly peaceful coexistence. There is a mosque located a few blocks away. Muslims like to pray a lot, several times a day in fact. So, if the roosters don't get you up, the loudspeaker of the call to prayer will, around 4:30 AM. But just think, you can tell all your Facebook friends about it. I bet most of them have never experienced that.
