It is located down a central alleyway, away from the hustle and bustle of the beach strip. The staff, in particular Isa, (who always greeted us... More

I chose to stay in Dave's Straw Hat because it had excellent reviews. And for good reason! The room was clean (they clean and provide fresh towels daily), AC was quiet. The wifi was pretty decent. ; pretty decent wifi. They clean your room and change your towels daily.

This is a really clean and comfortable place to stay. The rooms are quite nice and very clean. The courtyard has a great atmosphere and is beautiful. I had other friends staying at other places that were only a bit cheaper but the room quality and hotel grounds were awful. This place is a great budget deal for those staying... More
