Stayed 2 nights in Dao Diamond to attend a wedding. We liked it because its very near the airport (10 mins), and a nearby mall (5mins by trike). Breakfast included is basic (rice, bread, salad, a couple of meat), but the coffee included is only instant coffee 😐. Very friendly and accommodating staff, rooms are also clean, and they provide...

Nice hotel, operated by a charitable organization that hires the handicapped. Most of the employees are hearing impaired. The desk clerk is not deaf and efficient in sign language. The restaurant servers give you a menu, an order form and a pencil. The Hotel is clean as a whistle, and they have a pool. They also have an Airport pick-up... More

Close to the airport so I stayed here a few nights before my flight out. Free airport shuttle. I love that they support and work with the deaf. Really friendly and helpful staff! Rooms are nice. AC is very noisy, that was a downside to me. Loved the pool, location was kind of weird, next to a road (fenced off)... More

Location in the city of Tagbilaran is quite a bit away from the main beaches on Panglao Island. This can be an advantage for trips on the mainland. The hotel itself is nicely designed. The rooms were clean and well equipped. Drawback: Our rooms (we changed once) were very noisy (see also "Room Tip") because of the road in front... More

The place is worth the price, very clean, quiet, helpful & very accommodating staff . Though its difficult to communicate with the deaf if you do not know sign language. I'll recommend this place to my friends and will book again in my next tour in Bohol

Dao Diamond Hotel employs persons with disability giving them equal opportunity for employment. The stay was worth the price and hotel service to and from the airport is available. Garden space good for hanging out. Pool is also for free to hotel guests.

“Room 102 has strong & consistent wifi connection and it's near the front desk so it's easy to just go out of the room and ask the receptionists if you need something. but since it's facing the road, you can hear the tricycles passing by and since it's near the waiting area, you can also hear the people there (if they get too noisy)”
