The owners are very friendly and more than approachable, making sure you have everything you need to make your stay great. All staff will go out of their way to help you....

Very nice staff here, with excellent service. If you are new to Davao, other expats you meet here will have plenty of useful information. Never a problem with the room. They have a standby generator. Fairly close to the new shopping mall North of town. Its also possible to walk to the waterfront.

I was in Iloilo flew to Davoa just to spend a few days in Drifters before our return to England. So what more can I say. I stayed here three years ago and still its like home from home, every one is friendly, the place just has a relaxed atmosphere, the staff cannot do enough for you.

Drifters is indeed an apartelle. Personally, my wife and I liked the place. The only problem we had was a taxi that could not find the place bringing us back after dinner. Make sure that you have the address and phone number for the driver as it is in a gated community. I really liked the bar and the staff....
