We stayed at Dave's Straw Hat for 3 days after New Year. We loved this little spot, tucked away from the beach path in station 3. It's is a hidden tropical paradise with its beautiful lush foliage and perfect rooms. They are very reasonably priced and ideal for the adventuring traveller. Under the glass of the table in our room... More

Wonderful place, close to the beach and restaurants but still nice and quiet. Very clean and tidy. The best pancakes and very nice mangojuice and pineapple shakes. The staff was the best. Very kind and helpful. Will definitely stay here again if I'm going back.

Warm and welcoming staff made the stay pleasant. The rooms was clean and fresh. Close to the beach (2 min walk). Felt very secure and good athmosphere at the Inn. A good advise if you want to eat breakfast at the Inn is to order the evening before (otherwise long waiting time for the yummy pancakes) :)

We booked this placed months in advance, for our first holiday in Boracay for 2015. For a family with an 8-year old and a senior citizen in tow, we felt it was a good decision to stay at Dave's Straw Hat Inn. Located in station 3, this is far form the crowd and noise, less hassle from the vendors in... More

When booking hotels, I always place my trust in Trip Advisor and it has never steered me wrong. So when I saw Dave's Straw Hat Inn had the #2 rating on Trip Advisor among all Boracay hotels, I had very high expectations. Overall we had a pleasant stay: the rooms were cleaned daily, the staff were very friendly and accommodating.... More

We were pretty surprised to read your review and that you rated us the lowest rating possible on Trip Advisor, while NOT once ever saying anything to us while you were here about problems or concerns that you were allegedly having. We had with you many friendly greetings, interactions etc, but not one complaint. Furthermore in your review, you stated... More

We stayed in a fan-cooled room at such a great rate. The staff are incredibly sweet and welcoming making it feel like your staying with family. We even spent a couple nights watching movies and hanging out with some of the staff after a great day on the beach - felt like we were among friends. The inn is located... More

Location: Station 3. Good that it's a bit further away from all the noise and also a lot of boats head out from Station 3 - sunset sail, banana boat, helmet dive, etc. So it's a short walk. Bad that it's a fair walk (20mins walk each way?) to D'Mall area.. Not bad if you're just doing it once /... More

We stayed here as an extension of our days in bora since our flight was cancelled because of the typhoon ruby, and it was a great stay indeed. Their service is almost complete because whenever I asked for something, they gave it to me right away (unlike the hostel that we've been to). The staffs are well accomodating and so... More
