The room is clean, has a mini ref. Staff are nice. Buffet breakfast was good. The pool was under maintenance at the time which was a bummer. We enjoyed the free shuttle to the airport.

The place is nice with good value for money, but the room next to the reception is probably not the best. The included breakfast is not transcendent.

      Very nice location and value for money. The hotel staff are nice and I like the fact that they employ the deaf and mute. Strong wifi connection and good cable channel line up. You just have to buy your own water and snacks before coming to the hotel as it is a bit far from downtown....closest store is the ICM mall via tricycle.

      The staff were friendly and very accomodating. I opted this hotel in support of their deaf ministry. The place was just the right place to stay and my family enjoyed their stay. And in case you want to avail their free shuttle service from airport to hotel, do tell them in advance. I forgot to do so so we had to hail a taxi ride due to inavailability of the hotel driver. Nevertheless, transaction was smooth from online booking to checking in and checking out. Good experience. 😊

      The hotel is a little out of the way but one can easily get a tricycle for around 50 pesos into town. The room was very clean. Breakfast was satisfactory and was served by staff who are deaf. They are wonderful and are a credit to their workplace. The staff at the reception were also brilliant. I had an issue arise regarding payment and it was all sorted out perfectly. Would I stay here again - Definitely

      the bed!
      I researched this place and found out that they hired the deafs, i like the idea of their purpose of the hotel, therefore i decided to book it. Other than the receptionist, the rest of the service staffs were deafs, there is always a smile on their faces. We stayed there for a night, there was 4 of us, therefore we stayed in the family room. Our room was just behind the reception which was near, did not have to climb the stairs nor walk far. The room space was ok, for walking and 2 backpacks. We had a living room but did not use much of it as we are resting in the rooms most of the time. The toilet space was small though, anyone big would feel restricted in it. but we were only there for a night to bathe and rest, so it's ok. The bed was heavenly! So soft and comfy, i did not want to get out of it! Basic amenities provided, however it would be good if drinking water was provided for free. We did not have a kettle as well, and drinking water had to be paid for. No water cooler outside as well.

      Completes the whole bohol experience”
      Friendly and super-courteous staff, location, cleanliness and did I say staff
      - Friendly receptionists and awesome staff. Bunch of really happy and smiling staff. Seems like a good place to work. - There is an ICM mall nearby, 20 php by tricycle, one way. The mall has the regular jollybee and kfc. Some good pizza options too. - Cafe at the hotel has very few food options and a bit expensive. Rather eat out. - The hotel has couple of bohol tour packages (car and van). Maybe a bit expensive for a couple. Probably suits a bigger group. Its priced at 2000php and up, which includes just the transportation. Not worth according to me. All the parking fees, entrance fees and food has to be borne by the guests. We tried the local bus transport which ended up being quite cheap and one of the best experiences. The locals are quite friendly and helping so need not worry about being lost or taken for a ride. Just make sure you have planned the places to visit properly, as buses back to Tagbilaran are a bit rare post 4pm.

      Owned/operated by mostly the hearing impaired. Excellent food. Excellent staff.
      My fiance' and I enjoyed our stay thoroughly. The best part is its a hotel that gives opportunity to dozens of disabled folks thought the IDEA foundation. Rooms were very clean and well maintained. The pool was a little small, but well maintained and clean. The hotel's van will take you to their sister restaurant for a nominal fee. You must check out the Garden Cafe; also primarily run by the Deaf.

      I love to stay here because of the ambiance. very quiet because they are organizing a deaf school and providing jobs for those who belong to the organization. swimming pool is small but very safe indeed. The grilled is good and the price is just right. I will definitely recommend this to my friends.

      The staff at this hotel are very friendly but be a wear that some of the staff are deaf so you must make sure you are looking at them. This will not detract from your stay. The food servings are large basic but nice. The profits from this hotel help young deaf children the value for money is good

      Value for your Money with a Cause”
      Great ambiance, Reasonable price, Free transfers
      the room was spacious enough for a cheap room. i'd say you will get more than your money's worth. great hotel lobby and as you spend on your stay with dao, part, if not all, of the proceeds are for the benefit of deaf children. one slight problem that we encountered was the food service. probably my luck, the hotel had an event that they had to ask all available workers to come and serve during the event. with this, their in-house restaurant/cafe was left with one waiter to serve almost 5 tables at the same time. given such, our food came out of the kitchen an hour after we placed our orders considering that our food would only take less than 30 minutes to prepare. i am guessing that the kitchen was also undermanned since waiting on 5 tables was quite normal. normally, i would immediately escalate my complaint to the manager but since the waiter was deaf, i opted to cut him some slack considering that the hotel's operations are for a good cause. i suggest that they should have additional staff specifically for events. that way, the quality of service to other guests would not suffer.

      Pros and Cons”
      We are actually amazed that they hire mutes and that is a plus to us as in Philippine setting normally disabled are highly prejudiced towards getting a normal occupation and sponsoring and helping them out is very nice to know of as we get to make them live a normal life.On the other hand, cleanliness is not that good and the facilities are not up to date to standard, the tvs are old. But my mother enjoyed your fish spa is relaxing and fun to do especially for first timers and quite affordable to do one. We did not feel welcome at first, when one receptionist recognised my Aunt that’s the only time we were heart warmingly welcomed but at first stance and first impression of the receptionist there she was not that accommodating. We stood there for a bit of time before we were referred to the rooms. We were asked to do sign language when served for our breakfast and when we were brought to our rooms, it was so tranquil and relaxing to do so.... very good place for a retreat too....
