Great experience with the kids, nice view
When we stay we are not comfortable to sleep because of something noisy in our room in the middle of the night.
The service was really good however AC is completely bad. The room seems like no AC at all.
The hotel is certainly set in beautiful gardens, meticulously maintained, and also on the beach front. You can look over to the island of Samal. We arrived there the same day I booked, about 6 hours later. They could not find the booking even when I showed them the booking details on my mobile. So we sat around and took lots of garden pics until we were given a room. The room was seriously nice. Here's a tip. Ask for an even numbered room. They have the views. Do not get them to open the bar fridge. Firstly, there is no alcohol in there and secondly the prices charged for the contents will not make you happy! 700% is a bit over the top. The service was good even though they made a mistake at breakfast time. The pool was great, towels supplied at the pool bar. The food was also very good. Bar prices (the inside bar not the pool bar) were way over the top though and maybe that's a reason it was almost deserted. Certainly a great place to stay, especially for a romantic weekend. (If you have the money!)
Insular has good location and extensive buffet breakfast. However, the rooms are a bit dated especially the toilet. I find the staff unaccommodating to our request of late check-out even if we did our check-in near midnight. The rooms are not even full the next day. You could find a better resort in Davao at a more affordable price than this.
very good location and ambiance is perfect
Homey ambiance, tasty food, friendly staffs and spacious room. Great choice if you want to stay in Davao.
Spacious and comfy room, the breakfast was really tasty and varied, I had a pleassant stay here, thank you!
A classy old hotel in Davao whose facilities are still maintained very well. Located in a strategic area, great food and friendly staffs.

Very Good
Clean and Good Service
The hotel is clean and the service is good. The housekeeping staff would always stop what they're doing whenever they see their clients just to greet them. The only slight disadvantage of this hotel is it is very far from downtown area.

Grossly Overpriced
The items on the mini bar were grossly overcharged. My husband and I have been to 5 different countries and this is the first time that we were billed for the items we consumed from the mini-bar, and at almost 3x the actual retail price. Embarrassing. I also noticed that the interns (those not in proper uniform) were very noisy in the hallway. Unprofessional.
