Dave's is definitely the place to stay in Boracay. Location is perfect: walking distance from everywhere but away enough from the noise of the beach road. Rooms were very nice and clean, restaurant great (loved your pancakes!!) and the staff could not do more to help you with every question you came up to. THANKS!!! If I come back to...

I booked through trip advisor. At first it told me no rooms available but when I contacted direct, there were. The communications were excellent. I also booked the airport transfer with Southwest through DSH. Despite the fact that the plane was diverted to Kalibo it was seamless. The Southwest boys are excellent. The room was spotless with quiet Aircon... how...

In October 2008, my friend and I had the pleasure of being a guest at Dave's Straw Hat Inn for 8 nights. This was our first of hopefully many visits to Boracay and Dave's. I can think of no better place to stay for the laid back kind of experience that we were looking for. Making the arrangements was extremely...

Ok, before I write the review of Dave's Straw Hat Inn, I need to disclose that during my stay in Boracay, I ended up with a pretty significant reaction to MSG that required a trip to a clinic for a shot to stop the reaction (hives, difficulty breathing). Apparently, MSG is used throughout Asia (in retrospect, my reaction started in...

We stayed at Dave's Straw Hat Inn because of the excellent reviews we read here in trip advisor. And man, they never disappoint! The staffs are sincerely friendly, the best we've encountered so far! We got a standard cottage and we don't expect much since the price is really affordable. But i have to say, the room is cute, clean...

My friends and I went to Bora mid-May as a celebration of our graduation. I especially picked Dave's Straw Hat Inn because of the excellent reviews here. Even turned down my friend's offer to book in another famous hotel, closer to where the fun activities are. So my expectations were really high. The staff were really great. Kristine accommodated us...

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.”

“They offer non Aircon rooms and I would avoid these due to the mid day heat. Unless you are a local that is.”
