Daves straw hat I have reviewed this accommodation in the context of a middle aged couple travelling on a limited budget. We normally use Tripadvisor reviews to help with the selection of our hotel, disregarding the very best or very worst reviews if they are inconsistent with the general opinions. We were happy with our stay here; it was equal... More

We stayed two nights here during Chinese New Year and everybody in the resort had smile on their face the whole time - we felt welcome. Nice place and convenient location (not more than 5min from station 2 and we actually enjoyed those little walks back and forth as sights are beautiful and environment vibrant). Rooms are cleaned daily and... More

Good location back from the beach. Noisy room at night with plumbing, A/C & fridge all invading your slumber. Ear plugs sort it out. The room has an old TV, a safe & ceiling fans. The shower pressure is awful. The bed was ok. It's funny that I see everyone saying how friendly the staff were. It's not that I... More

Daves Straw Hat Inn is awesome. Located less than 100m from the beach in station 3, this property is very popular with young travelers. The area has lots of chillout bars and live music within minutes walk. The staff are excellent - freindly, helpful, welcoming, warm. I have worked in the the travel industry for over 25 years and this... More

If you go to the Philippines, then chances are you might be visiting Boracay as one of the many places to visit and enjoy during your stay. And if you're like my wife and I on a budget, you cannot always afford to stay at 5 star hotels. Dave's Straw Hat Inn is a lovely boutique hotel operated by an... More

I arrived late to Boracay (thanks to a mess up by CebuPacific) and wanted a cheap and cheerful place for one night. Dave's is off the beachfront by about 60 metres and is not the easiest to find......but my internal GPS hit it first time! Nicely designed as a beach type informal place made up of small bungalows/chalets. There is... More

We had a very nice and pleasant stay here. Warm welcome and very kind and helpful staff. The location is great as you are just a couple minutes away from white beach. Good price value ratio! Thank you Janet and everybody else at dave's straw hat for the pleasant experience!
