We booked a holiday for next February and pre-paid. We had many questions to ask and Janet (from Daves Straw Hat who also owns Arwana) dealt with them and these were always done promptly, politely and thoroughly, irrespective of how many queries or what they were! She went to a lot of trouble to ensure we booked the room we...

Arwana Hotel is situated on the better (quieter) end of White Beach. The friendly staff were nothing short of fantastic, more than willing to help you out when needed and happy to leave you in peace when you just want to relax. The food was excellent, so much so, I actually ate at hotel more often than not. The rooms...

My friend and I stopped here at the end of a month-long journey across SE Asia... I saw that it was highly ranked on this site (Dave's Straw Hat Inn) and the price was right, so I booked. We also opted to pay for transport from the airport to the inn itself... This is probably more expensive than doing it...

I started by sampling the place by staying two nights. After staying the first night, it was a no-brainer to stay. Their excellent personalized service was to par with chain hotels in SE Asia.

Firstly, the hotel is difficult to find. The tricycle driver had to use my cell phone to call the hotel to get directions. On arrival we were greeted with a drink and shown our room. It was reasonably spacious and clean. The bed is a let down in so much as it is a flat plank with a cheap 75mm...

If you are going to Borocay there's no need to stay anywhere other than Arwana. The staff is amazing, the food is good, the beach is on step out the front door with a beautiful tropical forest in the back. It was really the quaintest and best value I've ever gotten on a vacation.
