Fair prices, lovely staff, great atmosphere. I booked a one person room with no ac and cold water only. So I went with the lowest expectations and was surprised to find a quite spacious, cosy hut. It was very clean and comfortable. I also felt very safe at all times. I would definitely recommand this place. They have rooms for... More

Hotel has very nice location close to the White Beach (station 3), but quiet. The best thing about this place is really super helpful staff! We asked a lot of things and always get a comprehensive response - where to go, how to get there and so on. We always bought fresh mangoes on local market and they lent us... More

The wonder of this place is it's lack of rooms. A small simple restaurant. Rooms that are plain, quaint, clean and all a person requires to rest after an amazing day at the beach.. The staff here are chosen for being truly genuine and when they say "mabuhay" they truly mean it.. The hotel is very hidden away, It's based... More

We had such a lovely stay at Dave's! The location is close enough and far enough from the center of white beach. Our room was cleaned every day and you couldnt find friendlier staff on the island!Really had a great stay and were made to feel so welcome. Hopefully we will be back and get to meet again.

We stayed here for about a week. The staff was very friendly and the place generally clean. The location was good - a quick walk to the beach, but thankfully not on the beach! As I have heard is the case throughout Boracay, the wifi connection was not super reliable or fast. We also ate there for most breakfasts and... More

Located in a quiet area but only 2 minutes to the beach with all the restaurants and nightlife. The rooms are clean and you have everything you need for a comfortable stay. The price is reasonable considering the 24 h service of a very helpful staff. I've never experienced such a friendly staff in a familiar atmosphere. If I come... More

We had a lovely stay at Dave's Straw Hat Inn last week. The room was as as described and was clean and functional. The staff would clean the room everyday which was way more than what we expected,m especially considering the price point. The hotel staff was awesome and always available at any hours to help us out with anything... More

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
