      The hotel workers are ALL HEARING impaired.( except the telephone operator and a front desk lady. Pen and paper is used for communications. There is also a small pond where they use the tiny Garra Rufa fish who clean the old skin from your feet away. It tickles a lot when these little fish eat away Your old skin.There is however absolutely NO PAIN involved.

      My family and I enjoyed our stay at Dao. I admire the advocacy to hire local deafs as Hotel Staff. No problem in terms of communication as the staff from the Front Desk are able to communicate verbally and with the use of Sign Language, the staff can also read lips. Everyone is accommodating and friendly. The room that we had is very spacious, hotel is always clean and the facilities are well maintained. Wifi service is good. I would recommend this hotel for its service and advocacy. Portion of the hotel profits also helps deaf kids on their developmental needs.

      Short vacation with my sister and we both enjoyed our stay. Hotel was very peaceful and helped us relax after long days at work. May we recommend if it's possible to provide electric kettles,even in selected rooms only. Also, I hope the trash bins have covers,especially the one in the bathroom. Additional options for breakfast also is recommended. Good value for money. But still thank you, we enjoyed our stay

      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.

      I would recommend staying here. We enjoyed their pool and especially the fish foot spa. The room was nice but the bed was too soft and the pillow hard. On our second stay we had a better bed but the room wasn't as nice and water pressure was bad. Inconsistent but still a good value, safe, and clean.

      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.

      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.

      The room was okay and the staff are really nice. A mall is less than 5mins away from the hotel so if you want to watch a movie or shop, you can go there for 10pesos. But hopefully they have more choices for breakfast. Staying in this hotel made us realize that we can help and they need our help.

      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.

      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.
