Not sure but gee the other staff are great. Location - about 15 minutes walk south of d'Mall and less than a minute to the beach. Extremely quiet and highly secure. The deluxe room was huge and clean but fairly basic - the staff clean it every day and set out fresh towels. The inn is set in a small...

Dave's is a really friendly and value for money place to stay. I would definitely recommend it (and indeed was recommended it by some friends). location is good as it is off the main drag, so very quiet. Rooms were so clean and Janet and Jane made every effort to look after us.

We arrived in the morning and from the boat station 3 we were brought to Dave's Straw Hat Inn. It is located about 3 min. walking to the beach and has a very quiet and relaxing atmosphere.

Just after arriving at Dave's Straw Hat Inn I messaged a relative back in Australia saying; "WOW this place is amazing, it's really blowing me away".

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
