Pros. Fantastic staff, good location, good breakfast, and quiet Cons. Room #9, off-beach, pillows Dave's is a good budget choice for a family with a small child. Family friendly, they have a dog and it is very quiet so the little one can get some sleep. Also great about the location is the fact that traveling with a 3 year...

I went to Dave's with a friend over Easter, and it was simply great. Everyone was so friendly and attentive. We had to change rooms twice, since it is a very popular place to stay (and to be honest we booked a liittle late, happy we still got rooms). First I thought it was going to be a little annoying,...

After travelling the region for a couple of years on various budgets we are now wondering why we never went there before. For sure the nicest stay we had so far with super-friendly staff who will go the extra ten miles to make your stay there unforgetable. The value-for-money pick! Hope to see them again soon!

I'm not usually one to effuse over hotels, but Dave's Straw Hat Inn was amazing for a great week in boracay. As a budget hotel, it is sparkling clean, quiet, and incredibly friendly without being overbearing. My friend and I didn't have to tread that traveler line about asking the staff for information... Jenny (sp?) was always willing to tell...

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...

Magnificent hotel with house atmosphere. Have spent in it 6 unforgettable days. The personnel is ready to grant any minute your any desire. Always with a smile and sincere politeness. The room always pure, varies every day linen and towels. Remarkable meal and drinks, all is very tasty. Many different plants in hotel territory. Very cosy and comfortable place. We...

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.

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
