We enjoyed a wonderful week at Dave's at the beginning of February and we could not have asked for a nicer spot. As many others have mentioned, the staff at Dave's make your experience as relaxed and stress free as possible. Whether it was booking early morning transfers from the island or confirming a flight, the staff went above and...

Currently, we are in Cebu (post our Boracay visit), and in the first 2 days we missed Daves and Boracay so badly. If not for a conference we are to attend here, we all wish we did not leave Boracay. things why someone should consider Dave's: 1) Great atmosphere... I wish I lived there, because it feels like home... and...

Never even bothered reviewing a hotel before, but we both just wanted to say a big thanks to everyone at Dave's who made our vacation so wonderful. From the minute we dragged our poor weary, jet-lagged carcasses into their beautiful tropical garden, we were made to feel relaxed and SO taken care of. Standards are kept rigorously high and nothing...

This was me and my fiance first time to Boracay and Dave's Inn was recommended to us by a close friend and I will tell you we were not disappointed especially for the amount we paid. Dave's Inn is located on station 3 so its far enough from Station 2 where its more lively and loud. We had checked in...

This is our 3rd time to Boracay but our first time at Dave's - we were not disappointed. The property is small - only 10 rooms I believe - which was great for us - it was quiet and the service was great. We had 3 rooms and all were nice and clean - with TV's, aircon and fans. If...

The hotel is perfect. It is directly at the white sand beach, where everybody should stay. The surfers beach is on the other side but even surfers should look for a hotel at the white sand beach because everybody will spend all the evenings there. Dave`s hotel is probably 200 meters from the beach where you can have party every...

We stayed at Dave's based upon reviews read here. The staff is very friendly and helpful indeed. I think we got the worst room in the place because we were not impressed. We were in the back, above the storage room and public toilet. We had to climb rickety spiral stairs to get up to our room. We did not...

Hi We really enjoyed our stay at "Daves Straw Hat Inn" and have already recommended it to several friends and our families. The rooms at your resort are nice! The location is great- only about a minute's walk to the beach and very quiet and peaceful. Still it is only a few minutes to the shops and the great night...

If there’s something that made our holiday vacation in Boracay truly memorable — our stay at Dave’s Straw Hat Inn is a winner! Other exclusive hotels may have a lot of expensive amenitites to offer; Dave’s provided us just enough comfort ~~ a quick getaway from the busy city life. When we arrived at Dave’s, we were greeted by their...

We arrived on Dec. 29 2008 and stayed for 6 nights. I always use this website before I make a booking for a room so our expectations was very high! We found the rooms clean but very basic and tiny. The garden is also small but nice and the staff are indeed super friendly. But we expected more for the...

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
