Free breakfast was good, it is a plated your everyday silog combi. Room was spacious just like a studio condo with small kitchen and dinning... More

Stayed here in July with family en route to Pearl Farm. Perfect choice for the purpose as the Pearl Farm marina was just next door. Hidden on the coast across Samal, the hotel's rooms open out to cool sea breeze from the Davao Gulf. A morning walk along the beach is highly recommended for tired cityphiles. Staff service - from...

A two story family-run hotel, Chateau is just enough off the beaten path to give you seclusion, and yet it's close to the airport and a fairly inexpensive taxi ride to Davao City proper. Good breakfast, good housekeeping, room service and pool. No beach, but at low tide you can join the locals in searching for decorative shells and escargot.... More

I stayed here for 2nights, on my way to Pearl Farm Resort. Very convenient- the dock to Pearl Farm's boat ride is really right next door. My boat ride was scheduled at 730am and we left Chateu at 7:25am... it's that close. The hotel is equipped with all amenities, it is a boutique hotel equipped with an elevator, outdoor swimming...

The decision to book this hotel was under the pressure of the Easter holidays, there was basically no other property available in this area for a short stay of 3 nights, so we had no other choice than taking the chance and giving the hotel the opportunity to show that the reviews are not reality. The premises is run down,... More

Staff were friendly but service was subpar. The bathrooms were not equipped with hairdryers, the shower was very weak, almost to a dribble sometimes. There was a sweet spot in the handle to get enough water. Hot water was hard to come by. They finally provided us with a hairdryer after 3 days. Housekeeping was inconsistent, sometimes they provide washcloths,... More

“Rooms facing the waterfront get good breezes on the balcony, and you can watch the local boat traffic go by.”

“Go for the Suite, if staying with 3-4 people. It includes a sitting area and the sofa turns into a sleeping bed. Equipped with a kitchen, microwave, stove and dining table. It also has a balcony perfect for sunset and sunrise views.”
