Dao Diamond is located a bit out of the city central, but there are numerous motorized tricycle that can be hailed and taken into the city or the beach. Most of the staff are deaf, but surely excellent with their service and communication is not that difficult. Highly recommend renting a motorbike to tour island. Hotel does offer a marginal breakfast, and has pick up at the ferry terminal.

Room Tip: Rent a motorbike

We, a group of 100+ pax split into 2 batches, stayed here for our company outing for almost a week. Everything went smoothly and efficiently. All the staff are professional, approachable and accommodating. The rooms and all public areas are spacious, very clean and well maintained. The hotel is conveniently located near the airport and in the city and its about half an hour to Panglao island. Definitely good value for money! You also get more than what you pay for cause you’re also able to help your fellow men with hearing impairment. Majority of the staff- waiters and housekeepers are deaf and mute. They’re all so friendly and they provide great service. It was nice to get the chance to interact with them in small ways I can. It was overall a great stay in this hotel! Two thumbs up!

I stayed at Dao Diamond for a week to prepare for and to attend a church conference. There are many things I could say about this hotel. But primary among them is that this is not just a great place to stay, but when you stay here, you're helping the deaf and mute people of the Philippines. Most of the staff are deaf mutes, and are the most helpful and courteous people you would want to meet. The hotel not only provides employment for them, but also forms the base of teaching and training people like them for careers. In the Philippines children are not vaccinated against Rubella, the disease that causes deafness. As a result an extraordinary number of children are deaf and mute. The owner of Dao Diamond has taken a stand to help them. The hotel's conference facilities are pleasant and comfortable. There were about 75 of us in our group and we had plenty of room. The meals which the hotel catered for us were excellent and tasty. The rooms are very comfortable and include a complimentary breakfast. If I were to ever return to the Island of Bohol (which in itself is a good place to reconnect with yourself) there's no doubt that Dao Diamond would by my hotel of choice!

We took advantage of a special offer for Valentine's day of buffet dinner and overnight stay.

The check was very smooth and efficient done by the smiling receptionist.

The room was very comfortable, large, clean and styled in a classic way.

The buffet dinner was a buffet dinner. Not really gormuet, but good enough for a buffet dinner.

Some of the staff were hearing impaired (the hotel is a major sponsor) but we're always smiling and they always seemed to understand my own style of sign language.

I would highly recommend the Dao Diamond Tagbilaran.

This is a hotel with a purpose. You feel you helped their cause by patronizing this hotel that benefits the deaf community in Bohol & Leyte. Staff are mostly deaf.
Service: You get free shuttle from the port/airport. You can book tours through the hotel. Free wifi. Attentive staff and very clean surroundings.
Room: We stayed in the ground floor. The room was very spacious. Good water pressure hot & cold. Very nice and homey. Just what we need since we are out all day and just need a restful room to sleep.
Hotel has a restaurant where you can order room service. It is also a 5 minute tricycle ride to Island City Mall that is the largest in Tagbilaran where you can shop and choose from various restaurants.
Hotel is very reasonably priced, very relaxing and far from the noisy city. I am glad we stayed here.
