Our first to experience Boracay and Dave's was just the right place for us to stay after a long trip of getting there. Accommodation is so good and relaxing. Very warm welcome, friendly and hospitable staffs. So true to its reviews. Two thumbs up. Had great time. Be back there next LaBOracay, hopefully. Thanks to Dave's Straw Hat Inn family.... More

From the moment I booked this hotel the staff could not have been more helpful. I received an email offering airport pickup without any hassle. I also received tips and useful information about my upcoming trip to boracay. Upon arrival, I was greeted with a very warm welcome and welcome drink. I'd like a special mention to Eisha (not sure...

Like many others we saw the good reviews and the fact that it was located in the more family friendly Station 3 made us check this place out, and we are glad we did. 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.

The thing that stands out the most about this place is the staff. They are so helpful in helping you booking anything you want including transfers to and from any of the ports and airports. The rooms were great and cleaned daily, and we even got cute towel sculptures done each day! They have a great variety of food which... More

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

Really enjoyable, right near the beach. Good rooms, hot water, comfortable bed, and amazing staff. It felt really laid back and easy. Would like to come again. Only con, the sign on the beach is really small, so I passed it more than once. The transport back to the airport was really worth it.

Had a wonderful stay here at Dave's Straw Hat Inn at Chinese New Year. It is located in Station 3 which is nice and quiet and away from the crowds. We were greeted on the first night with delicious welcome drinks-mango smoothies!! The inn is located about two minutes away from the beach. The staff were so friendly and welcoming.... More

If the impersonal five stars resorts are not your dream and you like a friendly, familiar, and traditional place, the Dave's Straw Hat Inn will be your best choice. Located in a very quiet place at two minutes walking to the beach (Station 3). The first time is not easy to find but later on you'll appreciate to be away... More
