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!

Dave’s Straw Hat Inn is one of the best places we’ve ever stayed in our travels. Believe the hype. Its a beautiful guesthouse tucked at the very end of an alleyway, once you’re through the gate, it just feels like you’re home. Its quiet, peaceful, and very well kept. We stayed for four nights in the deluxe room and wish... More

Initially booked the cramped nipa hut so as to mange my budget in over priced Boracay. The hotel made it very clear that the room was extremely small, fan cooled and came with cold shower. Like all Boracay properties in this category this one was no different with basic amenities and over priced. However, you get what you pay for.... More

The staff are very friendly and always willing to help. My room was exactly as I expected, everything working fine. The location is not in front of the beach, something that in principle I did not like much. However, it turned out that it was much better being 1-minute walking from the beach that at the beach itself (less noisy,... More
