During the National Heroes Day long weekend, we wanted to take our homebody game elsewhere and decided to stay at a hotel just within the city. After an hour’s worth of research and mini debate, we chose to stay at THE RITZ HOTEL AT GARDEN OASES.
This is actually our third time staying at this hotel and our second one for this year. Why do we keep on coming back? Well, THE RITZ HOTEL AT GARDEN OASES is actually, for us, one of the best hotels in Davao City.
With 5 floors and 88 rooms in total, THE RITZ HOTEL AT GARDEN OASES is one of the well-known hotels in Davao City that attract many out of town visitors because of its very strategic location – close to many homegrown restaurants in the metro and to three popular malls namely Gaisano Mall, Victoria Plaza and Abreeza Ayala Mall.
INTERIORS AND EXTERIORS OF THE HOTEL
The room we stayed in was one of their deluxe rooms that was located at the ground floor of the hotel.
During our two stays this year, we noticed that the hotel does not provide a pair of slippers. But when we called the front desk, they were able to provide immediately during each of our stays. Maybe they just give the slippers upon request.
The hotel also provides wifi on majority all of its areas. However, we had a hard time getting a decent wifi signal inside the room that we were staying in. We told the front desk about this concern and the management immediately sent one of their IT personnel over and let us borrow a router. Apparently, our room was the only one where the wifi signal was at its weakest. Thanks to the quick response of the management and also for the router, our wifi signal was very strong and we encountered no problems in using the internet during our stay.
THE RESTAURANT & BREAKFAST FOOD
And on to the favorite part of every staycation, the breakfast food of the hotel
Aside from the restaurant, the hotel also serves food and snacks at the Pool Area and also has a separate room service menu. Though the food served are the same, they vary in price depending if ordered inside the restaurant, the pool side or inside the room. From what we observed, the room service prices are more expensive compared to the restaurant’s prices.
As what we have mentioned earlier, THE RITZ ARE GARDEN OASES is located in an area (Barrio Obrero) that is home to many of the city’s homegrown restaurants and also very near to three popular malls. So it was easy for us to go out and look for a place to eat or hang out when we felt like it.

Though the rooms of the hotels show signs of age, the service and location make up for that very shallow detail. We were very happy with our stay and we are definitely coming back and will recommend this hotel to our friends from out of town who need a place to stay.
