Why I Love Marco Hotel, CDO

Everytime I'm in Cagayan de Oro, I make it a point to at least stay overnight at Marco Hotel. I've made this a habit everytime we're in CDO. And this is the reason:

Marco Hotel, as far as I know, is the only hotel in CDO to have a heated pool.

This is when Euna took her first dip. I made it a point that the first pool she was going to wade in was heated.

Yes, she's scared. Having a comfortable temperature, I thought, would help ease her fear of being in the water.

Later, she mustered the courage to start playing with the water.

Marco Hotel actually has 3 pools. Most of the guests are not aware of the heated pool as it is hidden between the function hall and cottages.

You wouldn't miss this lap pool viewable from the lobby.

And just a few meters away, a shallow pool for kids.

Where Euna eventually had fun.

As a result, I have stayed in a variety of rooms at Marco Hotel but my review of these would have to wait in later posts. :)

Thanks for that wonderful review about Marco Hotel. I have never been in that hotel though I always heard the name. Well, seeing you like the hotel so much, I guess I will book a reservation in the Marco for my next month stay there in Cagayan de Oro. I'll make it a try this time.

Hi! I like Marco mainly because of the price point and this. IMHO, I get more value for what I'm paying for since there's already a host of facilities included when I stay at the hotel such as the use of their heated pool. They also happen to have a recreational area that guests can use as well (not sure if it's free or there's a charge for it). Do let me know how you find your stay there. :)

Hi there....

I'd like to stay in Marco Hotel in the second half of January. Can you give me advice about which room is best?

Many thanks for any help....

Oh my,super delayed reply. I will write a post soon on the different rooms at Marco. Though with the passage of time, not entirely sure if those will still ring true until now. :)
