Darunday Manor
Ranked #6 of 11 Hotels in Tagbilaran City
Reviewed March 18, 2012

On the way to Alona Beach, we spent a day in Darunday. It is well situated, and equipped with nice staff. The room was clean, and had everything we expected for this price. There is a bit of traffic noise (we were on the street facing side), but is tolerable. Thanks for the hospitality.

Room Tip: Look for rooms away from street side.

The hotel is a few minutes away from the airport... and with the free shuttle from airport to hotel, getting there would not be a problem... The hotel at the heart of Tagbilaran.. it's a walking distance to the Cathedral and Bohol Museum and lots of restaurants including malls... the room is clean and wide... the staff are very kind and helpful... since i was traveling alone, they considered my safety when i asked them how to commute from Tagbilaran to the tourist spots in Panglao Island and insisted that i rent a tricycle to assist me since the places i want to go to are not that easy to get to... that way, they can get the number of the tricycle driver and be aware of who im traveling with... they also have a 15 minutes free trial of a scalar energy bed... and btw, if you came from the Island City Mall and took a multicab back to the hotel (for only Php8.00), the multicab will pass right in front of the hotel...

Room Tip: bring your own shampoo and conditioner... they only provide soap...

First impressions: the room is clean, but smells of cigarette smoke (who knows where the smoke came from – might also be from Darunday’s neighboring houses). Their staffs are friendly and hospitable and ready to promptly assist any guest. Just don’t forget that the front desk number is 801 (not indicated anywhere in our room, we just knew their number on our last night).

They have solar powered water heaters. I don’t know exactly how they work but the water’s hot in the afternoon, no matter how you turn the knob. If you’re the kind of person who’d like to shower at the end of your HOT day tour, consider having your shower when it’s a little darker.

Their breakfast serving sizes are not that big, you might consider taking breakfast elsewhere if you’re really hungry. Otherwise, being at home in Darunday for breakfast is not a bad idea.

Darunday is located well near the city plaza and reasonably near malls and the busy downtown. If you become bored, a couple of steps from Darunday and you’re ready to explore Tagbilaran City.

Overall, great value for money. Coming back to Bohol would also mean coming back to Darunday for me.

Room Tip: We checked in at room 12 of Darunday Manor – love the strong wifi signal inside the room. Recommende...

Our stay at Darunday Manor is great. It's a 10 minute ride from the pier. They also provide transportation services for free from pier/airport to the hotel; staffs are very accommodating. Since that our hotel is located at the city proper we have all the access to the terminals for our trip to Bohol’s Tourist Destination. They also provide us with a map since that we love to travel around with our own. All in all it’s a great stay with value for money.

Room Tip: For me, i think all rooms are good. Our hotel room is located at the 2nd floor room 204 i think. It...

The hotel is located in the center of Tagbilaran City. If sight seeing is part of your itinerary, although there isn't much in Tagbilaran, this is your hotel. Within walking distance are the Cathedral, the park, museum, and some malls downtown. As with most buildings in the city, the building is old, but the rooms of this hotel is a different story. They are clean and quite spacious. The air conditioning unit was new, made no noise, and functioned without hassle. There is free set breakfast, which was filling and quite tasty. Loved the bacon. Initially, the offer was only free airport pick up, but when was requested for free airport drop off, they granted it. We got the feeling they don't usually do that. We felt special. Haha.

Minor setbacks would be the mildew on the shower curtians, and the bathroom kinda smelled. Also when we asked for extra blankets, front desk admitted she forgot about our request and apologized. We had to call again. It's the little things that dissapoint me a little.

I wish management would look into these minor things because overall, our experience in this hotel is one of the best by Philippine standards.
