Tagum, dubbed as "City of Palms," is a developing city in the province of Davao del Norte. Frequented by business and leisure travelers, it is home to some of the best hotels and resorts in Davao del Norte. One of them is Big 8 Corporate Hotel which we recently visited for a 3 day 2 nights stay during our recent trip in Davao region.
Located along the national hi-way, Big 8 Corporate Hotel Tagum (Check rates online) is a smart choice for travelers as it is just a 45-minute drive from Davao City. Its strategic location; being just a kilometer away from the city center and from the city's commercial and entertainment districts, as well as its tourist spots and attractions, makes it an ideal place to stay in Tagum City.
Upon arrival at the hotel, we were hospitably welcomed by the hotel staff and assisted us with our booking. Since we already have prior reservation, checking-in was fast and efficient. It only took us about 5 minutes and we were given the access key cards to our room.
Our room is an impressive Deluxe Room (Check rates online) designed for business and leisure travelers. It is also equipped with all the much needed essentials for a comfortable stay. It has 2 single beds complemented with clean white sheets, fluffy pillows and thick comforters. The room is characterized with shades of ivory and earth tone colors which create a relaxing and calming ambiance, which I like!
Other room amenities include an en suite toilet and bath, an individually-controlled airconditioning unit, cabinet, luggage rack, television set with cable channels, a vanity dresser with mirror, and a mini bar with refrigerator and coffee & tea-making facilities.
The toilet and bath has a clean water closet with bidet spray, a sink with mirror and an enclosed shower area with hot and cold shower feature. Complete toiletries such as shampoo, bath soap and dental care and vanity kits and bathroom amenities such as a hair dryer and clothes hanging area were also provided. The body and hand towels all smell fresh! I was impressed! For me, it is essential to have a bathroom that is clean and well-organized. Big 8 Corporate Hotel did not disappoint; from the sink to the water closet to the shower area, they are all clean.
Assisted by one of the hotel's staff, we were given the chance to check on the other rooms. I love the hotel's elegant and classy interiors with long hallways that exudes a very cozy feel.
Each spacious rooms and suites is designed with the guests' comfort in mind. Whether you're a tourist or traveling on business, Big 8 Corporate Hotel is a great choice for accommodation in Tagum City.
