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...

Without a doubt, this is the only place to stay when you go to Boracay. We have never stayed at a better place than this. You could pay 3 to 4 times as much and stay in a worse place. Dave, Janet, Jenny and the rest of the staff will do their upmost to make your stay the best it...

On its website Dave's Straw Hat Inn says: "We don't make reservations, we make friends". Well, that's just about what they do in practice. The staff is friendly and helpful as can be, the cottages are comfortable and clean and they're surrounded by beautifully kept plants and trees. Value for money is excellent. And it's Boracay, so what more can...

This is my second stay at Dave's Straw Hat Inn so that says it all. The booking online and payment is so easy, emails are answered immediately with helpul advice. Both my stays have been at the same time of the year and for 9 nights. I had a huge welcome the same as everyone gets with a refreshingly cold...

We stayed at Dave's Straw Hat Inn for several days in August. The staff were absolutely amazing!!! They were super friendly and extremely helpful. The inn's landscape was quite scenic and our room was very clean. The food was very reasonably priced and quite delicious. The inn is less than a minute walk from the beach and is only about...

Date: 6 ~10 December 2008 Location: It was quite far from all the activities in station 2, but if you like peace & quiet it is the place to be. Room: The cleanest room (low cost) that I have stayed in. Practically everything was spotless. Keep it up! Blankets were too thin for comfort, TV was only 14" (but who's...

I made a decision to stay at Dave's after reading other reviews at Tripadvisor, and never regreted it. Nice part of the island - not so crowdy and noisy. Perfect for those, who enjoys sounds of wind and ocean in the evenings. And if you want a party - it is only 15min walk to the bars&disco area, or you...

We are not really budget travellers but we stayed here 7 nights based on the reviews on tripadvisor. The place is very basic. The rooms are simple and clean and the staff is nice. We did not really enjoy the food. We had a couple of breakfast there and one lunch. The location of the Inn is on the wrong...

Where to start?! Dave's is a fantastic little place to stay, far enough away from the hustle and bustle of station 2, yet close enough to walk to all the restaurants and bars. The inn is gorgeous - a few cottage style rooms clustered around reception/dining area. It's beautiful at night when it's lit with just a few fairy lights,...

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
