Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Great quality museum with really good and interesting skeletons of thousands of different animals and fish. Some taxidermy too. Fast paced clear and succinct guided tour included, after which you are free to browse.
    Best thing I have found in Davao City so far.....

    Just another SM Mall. A lot of choices for food. Not crowded and therefore it feels relaxing to walk around.
    Going to the place is a little bit of heavy traffic.

    we took a short detour to visit this sacred place to say a fervent prayer.

    among all the cathedrals i've been to, this is one of the smallest. nevertheless, it doesn't diminish the fact that one can find solace and tranquility inside this Church.

    the altar is temporarily being reconstructed so a big tarpaulin depicting the actual altar is being used as a cover.

    we lit several candles on the side, giving thanks for all the blessings we've received.

    To begin with, the museum has moved to Juna Subdivision, near PWC. They will be here for next two years - according to the staff.

    This was my third attempt to visit the museum. First attempt in June failed, because they were not yet open at the new place. Second attempt in September failed because I went on Sunday, and it is closed on Sundays.

    There is no entry fee. The museum is very small - only 50 objects displayed. However it opens a window to Davao city and helps to understand the city better. It gave me leads on what I need to explore more.

    When I had some questions regarding the musical instruments, the young guide was available to answer it. There is an audio-visual (set of six or seven video clips) which is informative.

    Overall good experience. I hope they will expand.

    Shakey's Pizza in Gaisano mall in Davao City was excellent pizza and onion rings. House blend tea was good with ice. The menu had a great selection of different items to order. Server and waitress were friendly.
    Would definitely go back.

    In the US I grew up on a diet of fine art museums, and grand quality museums found in NYC and Washington DC. In the Philippines, I have learned to dig a little deeper and broaden my knowledge to fulfil he same desire to learn about things. Museums like this are really quite interesting, detailing the history, crafts, and early peoples of the area. The exhibits are good quality and offer many beautiful decorative and functional objects. If you take a taxi, consider holding the taxi until you;re finished because the museum is set back some from the street and the area is not quite as urban as other parts of Davao.

    As tourist, I am more drawn to the beautiful collections of older churches in the Philippines - but what this one lacks in age, it makes up for in rich, spiritual experience. The paintings on the walls, stained glass, and other painted panels are a testament to the love and dedication people have for this church. The altar area is beautiful and simple. Sunday mass was heavily attended! I could have sat in one of the nice wooden church pews a longer time, but I was trying to see other features in Davao.

    There are actually a lot of malls in Davao. This branch of SM has a wide variety of shops, restaurants and activities to choose from. Major retailers are actually here, considering this is in Mindanao and far from Metro Manila; the place is not so upscale, and is very modern.

    They have sweets, snacks, trinkets, clothing, accessories. You'll sure to find something pasalubong-wise to take back if you're pressed for time. The prices are reasonable. I saw a similar top they were selling Roxas Night Market here cheaper by 100. IDK if there was a difference in cloth though or quality.
    There are different sellers here so if there's something you didn't find at one person, the vendors will direct you to someone who might have what you may want.
    The tablea I bought was really tasty.

    felcris is well known in davao for their wonderfull convience stores that are open all night. but they made a mistake with this place. the location is to far from everything. i only visited this place when i wanted to go the LTO across the street. have of the places are empty. the restaurants that are there do not serve halve the food. the place is half empty. i know the callcentre upstairs is ok. but this building is so mixed that nobody knows its identity

    I was searching for a nearby spa and trip advisor recommended this facility. At first i was hesitant to go due to the reviews of the tourists who visited them. The reviews in the app is different from google. Anyways heres my comment:

    1. Booking - 5 stars. Ms Lyka receptionist aside from texting , has called me to confirm about my schedule and is responsive to my queries. best to book your appointment via text since their Lanang Branch is often full.
    2. Facility- 4 stars bed sheets smells ok along with their CR. its clean, brand new, the ambience is relaxing. Music background is relaxing as well.
    3. Service : 4 stars the masseur assigned to me listens to my request and is well trained specially the massage both for foot and body combo.
    4. Cost: Value for money: 4 stars: you cannot avail a 2 hour massage for Php800 anywhere else. Its a thumbs up for me
    5. After massage: 2 stars : the Hot Tea is already cold when served to me which is disappointing. And hot towel to wipe off excess oil.

    All in all- 4 Stars - highly recommended for travelers

    Good place to hang out. Wide selection of drinks. Trendy decor and layout. Very small place but can accommodate a lot. Good pika-pika too. The narrow stairs can be dangerous when you have too kuch to drink or in an emergency.
