Going for a luxury accommodation would just be a setback.It's either it will be too comfortable you wouldn't think of going out or that it is too expensive,you would feel guilty leaving and spending most of the 24 hours outside the hotel.
The ROYALE HOUSE DAVAO
The place is famous for backpackers and groups.
Now that is very important,given the limited boats going to and from Samal Island on a given day.
Pusangkalye recommends The Royale House as a practical choice when in Davao City.Enjoy!!!!
