I stayed at Dave's Straw Hat Inn based on the reviews I read here on tripadvisor. First of all, I will say that the service was exceptional. Filipino people in general are very warm and hospitable, but the staff at Dave's were just something else. They could not have been more attentive and friendly. They always greeted us with a...

I have stayed at numerous hotels in beautiful Boracay and this is an average place to stay. The location is in the back of station 3, furthest from everything. The rooms were average. The staff was friendly. I chose this hotel because of best rating, but I was very dissapointed. The power would go out every day, the generator would...

Make sure to book transport through Dave's to get you from Caticlan airport to Dave's. Always check with the front desk at Dave's before any kind of purchase/booking. If you are not used to the heat and humidity, make sure you book an air conditioned room. Worthwhile eating at Dave's, as good as anywhere around. Especially breakfast. Make sure you...

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.
