When I booked the Dao Diamond Hotel, we had to call them on the phone, as they don’t do online booking. They suggested using Facebook Messenger in the future. We booked a Superior room with a microwave, sink, and refrigerator. When we checked in, we asked to see one of their refurbished Deluxe rooms while our Superior one was being prepared. The Deluxe appeared to be a larger and much better room, though it didn't have a microwave or sink (they both had refrigerators). We'll try the Deluxe room next time. This hotel has mostly-deaf staff, though the girl at the front desk hears; I believe the organization that runs the hotel is right next door. A bulb inside the door of our room and another over the bed weren't working. The lighting in our room was dim. The WiFi didn’t work on my girlfriend's phone, but the desk agent was able to get it working. The safe was too small for a laptop. The bed has a sheet, which I prefer to the heavy comforters you usually get in the Philippines. The only water in the room is paid. We couldn’t find a way to turn off the bright TV, with no signal, so we unplugged it. The satellite receiver was still lit up, however. The AC is fairly noisy, and there’s some street noise too. I found a bug on the paper I was using as a mouse pad. There were more towels here than at other hotels we stayed at on this trip: face, hand, and shower ones. There was lots of counter space in the bathroom, but it was otherwise tight. The toilet paper was rather weak. A la carte breakfasts were 200 pesos each. I liked my girlfriend's hot dog with rice: it tasted a bit like an English/Irish breakfast sausage. When we ate dinner at Kahiki Café the food was well prepared and the fries were outstanding. You have to write out your order for the waiter. We didn’t try the pool, but it looked nice. My impression is that this is a superior hotel by Philippines standards, at least if you get the refurbished Deluxe room. When we checked out of Dao Diamond, they only charged us 1,812 pesos, $33 at the time, not the $41 their website indicated. They had a tuk-tuk there to take us to our next destination. We ended up rating Dao Diamond the 3rd and 6th (me and her) best hotel of the thirteen hotels we stayed in in the Philippines on this trip, and it was the favorite in Tagbilaran for both of us. It is a ways from the town center, of course, but not too far from ICM mall.

It was very nice. Someone directed us to it, before phone service was restored, and I didn't realize that they employed deaf people, until we were in the dining room. I'm starting a small tourist place, where we plan to have some positions for PWD. So I was very pleased to stumble upon this place, that I see functioning so well. A few people in our farming community, have suffered accidents. I will attempt to create positions for those with mobility issues. I'm also making the whole place very accessible for guests with mobility issues.

Stayed at Dao Diamond Hotel for about 3 weeks with my whole family :) We are Boholanos from Australia. My husband, daughter (5yo) & i stayed in 1 room & my parents on another :) We really love the vibe. We highly recommend this place if you want to be away from the hustle & bustle of city life & just want to relax and have your own quiet time. They have a restaurant & pool onsite :) Everyday, our room gets cleaned by their friendly housekeeping staff. Great job by the way & attention to details :) Also their kitchen staff who by the way are deaf/ mute, does a great job as well. Although sometimes they dont understand what we mean because of communication barriers ( we try to do sign language by the way :) but seems to be easier if we write on a paper what we want :) Also the all reception staff which our daughter calls, “Ates”, are very friendly, shows good rapports to their guests. They also helped us along with the other hotel staff to set up my daughter’s last minute birthday party in their hall :) Last minute means it was booked 2 days before the party.. thank you! We have also met the owns/ runs the hotel which by the way runs it incredibly by giving opportunities to deaf & mute community. High respects to what you do :) Hope we could comeback again the next time we go for vacation. 10/10 ♥️

Hotel is located out of town in a quiet spot. It is pleasant if rather dated. The difference is that staff, apart from reception are deaf. This is challenging, but once you make the effort well worth while and I applaud the hotels philosophy. My room was spacious and comfortable with good bathroom. Greatly enjoyed feet fish spa, my feet felt rejuvenated after 10 mins attention from swarms of little fish. Also appreciated limo service to. us terminal on departure. Would certainly stay again.

After our ferry to Dumaguete got cancelled we found ourselves stuck overnight in Tagbilaran. Looking online one of the hotels within our budget and close proximity happened to be Dao Diamond. The hotel is a little off the main road heading to Tagbilaran City and the Port, so its definitely quiet. But the peaceful silence also comes from the hotels staff. The hotel has an arrangement with the local deaf healthcare centre next door. They are very attentive and work hard, you just simply write your instruction / food order clearly for them. If you can sign they would love a conversation. There are some handy basic signs available on the menu to help with ordering and pleasentries. Although the menu is limited it is satisfactory and good value. The pool area was also a lovely refreshing addition after a hot day of seeing the sights of Bohol. The front house staff were very helpful including moving us to a more quieter room (the todler next door was having a meltdown and we just wanted some peace and quiet). They also sent a maintenance guy to fix our snowy TV pronto. Breakfast was basic with eggs and toast with condiments, but it was very satisfying. Our same waitstaff were attentive, polite..and very quiet 😄👍 For an unplanned nights accommodation we actually really enjoyed our stay at Dao Diamond. The name might be a precious stone...but its the staff who are all the real gems 😁👋👋 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Dao Diamond is simply a wonderful hotel, staffed and owed by some sort of organisation for the deaf Dao Diamond is close to Island mall and the transport terminal, they have a free modern shuttle van that will take you to the Mall or Ferry port, dont know about the new airport but i assume they will, rooms are well sized and very comfortable, great value for money in a wonderfully relaxed setting.

Nice, clean, isolate hotel. This hotel operated to support education and care of hundreds of hearing-impaired children. Many staffs are hearing-impaired and need to communicate by hand sign or write down, but they very energetic to service and keen to help. Overall great place, satisfied service!

日本語の情報が少ないので書きます。 3泊しました。スタッフは笑顔が素敵でみんなフレンドリー。ゆったりした雰囲気のホテルです。 Island City Mallが比較的近く、両替や買い物はここで。アロナビーチにも、チョコレートヒルズ方面へも行きやすく、Daoに宿泊して正解でした。 私達はフェリーターミナルまで送迎をお願いしました。電話ができずメールで到着時刻を連絡しましたが、時間通り迎えに来てもらえました!ありがとうございます。ホテルの名前入りの車で、宿泊者の名前入りボードを持っていてくれるので分かりやすかったです。 フロントでモーターサイクルのレンタル手配が可能です。返すときもホテルまで取りに来てくれるので楽!レンタル店 Hey Joeは良心的ですし、ホテルにバイク専用駐車スペースもあります:) 朝食は5種類くらいのセットの中から選べて、個人的にはフライドポークがおすすめ。簡単なプレートですがおなかいっぱいな量。遅めに行った日は自動的に写真のセットになりましたが、このオムレツが美味しい!美味しかったと伝えるための手話を覚えていけばよかった。皆さん笑顔が素敵でした。 私は問題なかったですが、情報として、ヘアドライヤーと冷蔵庫はありませんでした。お部屋にセキュリティボックスはあります。ドアはオートロック。外には警備員さんもいましたよ。 サービスや施設に日本式の完璧さを求める方には合わないかもしれません。ideafに関する活動が素晴らしいですし、堅苦しくなく暖かでのんびりした雰囲気がとても気に入りました。お世話になりました! Thanks to your help, we enjoyed the vacation leisurely‼
