The hotel is perfect. It is directly at the white sand beach, where everybody should stay. The surfers beach is on the other side but even surfers should look for a hotel at the white sand beach because everybody will spend all the evenings there. Dave`s hotel is probably 200 meters from the beach where you can have party every...

We stayed at Dave's based upon reviews read here. The staff is very friendly and helpful indeed. I think we got the worst room in the place because we were not impressed. We were in the back, above the storage room and public toilet. We had to climb rickety spiral stairs to get up to our room. We did not...

Hi We really enjoyed our stay at "Daves Straw Hat Inn" and have already recommended it to several friends and our families. The rooms at your resort are nice! The location is great- only about a minute's walk to the beach and very quiet and peaceful. Still it is only a few minutes to the shops and the great night...

We arrived on Dec. 29 2008 and stayed for 6 nights. I always use this website before I make a booking for a room so our expectations was very high! We found the rooms clean but very basic and tiny. The garden is also small but nice and the staff are indeed super friendly. But we expected more for the...

Without a doubt, this is the only place to stay when you go to Boracay. We have never stayed at a better place than this. You could pay 3 to 4 times as much and stay in a worse place. Dave, Janet, Jenny and the rest of the staff will do their upmost to make your stay the best it...

On its website Dave's Straw Hat Inn says: "We don't make reservations, we make friends". Well, that's just about what they do in practice. The staff is friendly and helpful as can be, the cottages are comfortable and clean and they're surrounded by beautifully kept plants and trees. Value for money is excellent. And it's Boracay, so what more can...

We stayed at Dave's Straw Hat Inn for several days in August. The staff were absolutely amazing!!! They were super friendly and extremely helpful.

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

“Deluxe rooms have the most space, larger beds and closets. Standard cottages are smaller and could use more drawers and shelves.”
