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...

The reviews of Dave's in Tripadvisor were right on. It was the perfect Boracay resort for my partner and I. Great location, beautiful facilities and attentive staff all combined for a really memorable vacation. On a thankful note, I wanted to thank Janet and the staff for the special effort they made in making the wonderful birthday cake and celebration...

my husband and i stayed here with our 3 year-old daughter for a week in april and were very happy with our choice. Dave's is a great value for the money; it may not be a fancy resort, but it is comfortable, in a great location, has beautiful grounds, and most importantly of all, a truly marvelous staff who work...

Pros. Fantastic staff, good location, good breakfast, and quiet Cons. Room #9, off-beach, pillows Dave's is a good budget choice for a family with a small child. Family friendly, they have a dog and it is very quiet so the little one can get some sleep. Also great about the location is the fact that traveling with a 3 year...

I went to Dave's with a friend over Easter, and it was simply great. Everyone was so friendly and attentive. We had to change rooms twice, since it is a very popular place to stay (and to be honest we booked a liittle late, happy we still got rooms). First I thought it was going to be a little annoying,...

After travelling the region for a couple of years on various budgets we are now wondering why we never went there before. For sure the nicest stay we had so far with super-friendly staff who will go the extra ten miles to make your stay there unforgetable. The value-for-money pick! Hope to see them again soon!

I'm not usually one to effuse over hotels, but Dave's Straw Hat Inn was amazing for a great week in boracay. As a budget hotel, it is sparkling clean, quiet, and incredibly friendly without being overbearing. My friend and I didn't have to tread that traveler line about asking the staff for information... Jenny (sp?) was always willing to tell...

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
