The stay was predicated by the staff responding to my online enquiry when I was looking for places to stay on Boracay and actually addressing what I was asking for. The other competing 10 or so establishments gave the standard cut & paste reply so I booked at Daves Straw Hat. My two friends and myself were very impressed with...

Simply put, all we have read is true. We had weather problems, airline and transfer problems and even missed our flight….all said and done, the smiles at Dave’s never stopped and the assistance we got from them is what kept us from really getting upset with the conditions, none of which had to do with the hotel. We had a...

My buddy and I decided to take a vacation to Boracay and stay at Dave's Straw Hat Inn while there. A friend told us he knew the owner personally and knew the resort was a great place to stay. He was right!! Dave's was amazing and very affordable. The resort staff was very accommodating and anything we needed, they took...

as this gem is quietly located just 2 min maximum away from the beach. Unless you choose a first class resort, being directly at the beach is not a real advantage. Located in a nice garden, you find some hats each with a terrace (not most romantic, but okay). Rooms are standard, very clean. Very good daily cleaning of rooms....

The hostel is located a bit off the beach in very lush garden. Walking to beach takes about 2 minutes but that is worth the tranquility of the hostel. The rooms are basic but spotless clean. The towels are changed daily. The staff was very friendly and I felt very much at home. The price was okay, but not a...

Only stayed 4 days but wished it was longer. Clean comfortable room, good food, reasonable prices and the friendliest, most helpful staff you could ask for. Also, the location is perfect since it is a peaceful, quiet location but close to the beach and near to all shopping needs as well. This was my 2nd time at Dave's Straw Hat...

This was the second time we went to this hotel - we were looking for a place to totally relax, and knew that we would have no hassles at Dave's Straw Hat. The rooms are basic, clean but small.

Aside from being over in station 3 and being a 10-20 min walk down to the other end of the beach if needed, this was a beautiful place to stay.. Great service, great rooms.. and you can eat brekkie at their sister hotel on a balcony overlooking the beautiful water! I recommend this place to anyone =)

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
