My friend and I stopped here at the end of a month-long journey across SE Asia... I saw that it was highly ranked on this site (Dave's Straw Hat Inn) and the price was right, so I booked. We also opted to pay for transport from the airport to the inn itself... This is probably more expensive than doing it...

I started by sampling the place by staying two nights. After staying the first night, it was a no-brainer to stay. Their excellent personalized service was to par with chain hotels in SE Asia. The staff instantly recognized and called you by name as you leave and return the facility. The hotel also included broadband internet connection made contacting friends...

Firstly, the hotel is difficult to find. The tricycle driver had to use my cell phone to call the hotel to get directions. On arrival we were greeted with a drink and shown our room. It was reasonably spacious and clean. The bed is a let down in so much as it is a flat plank with a cheap 75mm...

If you are going to Borocay there's no need to stay anywhere other than Arwana. The staff is amazing, the food is good, the beach is on step out the front door with a beautiful tropical forest in the back. It was really the quaintest and best value I've ever gotten on a vacation.

Stayed two nights there in early July 2009. Well located just IFO white beach at Station 3. About 8 minutes leisure walk to the restaurant & bar area at Station 2. Very helpful staff. Clean Room. Highly recommended for those who don't want fancy hotel facilities.
