Lovely people who really try to make you feel at home and help you with your questions. The bungalows are clean and cosy. It is a quiet and friendly place. The walls are a bit thin though so you can hear the noughbours well. Overall a very Nice experience. I would definitely recommend since it is the nicest place we've...

The service at this hotel is amazing. Incredibly personal, friendly and laid back with great attention to detail. We forgot our towels upon checkout and the employee actually ran a decently far distance to find us. Wow! Tons of fun staying here. The rooms are comfortable and the beds are actually quite nice. Location is very good, about a 2min...

Stayed at Dave's for 10 days. The place is quiet, the room are just fine and the people are very service minded. I can recommend Dave's to everyone who wants a quiet place to stay instead of the often noisy hotels beside the beach.

Stayed for 7 nights in May 2016. LOCATION: Dave's Inn is in Station 3, which we really enjoy because of the relative peace and quiet compared to the crowds and noise along Stations 1 and 2. It is a short walk to the beach and to the road for a tuk-tuk to the other stations, so it was not a...

Staff is very friendly, the location is 2 minutes from the beach and is very quiet. I recommend to all who want a beautiful and pleasant experience in Boracay! Only the distance to the D mall or station 1 is about 20min walk! Greetings Aljosa

It was a very last minute decision to come to Boracay, and I found Dave's straw hat inn by chance, it is located down a small alley just off the beach (1 minute walk), it is a very nice little location that is in a compound with individual apartments. The price for a clean room with very good AC that...

A stone's throw, but pleasantly set back from the white beach, DSHI is well located along the quieter end of the Boracay strip (Station 3). Within 15 minutes' walk you can be amidst the tourist central area, if you wish. The ever helpful staff were on hand seemingly 24 hours to ensure needs catered for and customer service given. Even...

It was a very nice first visit for me to Boracay. Good choice for choosing Dave's Straw Hat Inn. Very accommodating staffs, and everything we need, they provide. I haven't tried their food though, felt like its expensive. But overall was a nice place to stay with.

Station 3. Very well run business and near to the best side of the beach, easy walk, quiet. Well trained kind staff. Rooms and cute, clean with safety box and free wi-fi. We will go back there again next holiday for sure. Thanks so much.

I've been around the Philippines for 25 years and this inn is one of the best vacation spots anywhere. Dave's is just far enough from the noise to be peaceful (boat station 3) and close enough to easily walk to the action. It has a warm family atmosphere with lots of privacy. The rooms are cozy and the food is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A Charming Resting Place, which offers a serene and intimate tropical nirvana, located less than a minutes walk to the beautiful Boracay Island "white" beach. Allow the staff to cater to your needs while you spoil yourself in the beauty of Boracay. Enjoy the family atmosphere and those amenities that most big Boracay resorts offer without the high prices. We have been referred to as the "best budget hotel on Boracay," but without skimping on the comforts. ... more   less
