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

I stayed here in December for more than one month and I really liked it. It has a really good atmosphere and great staff. They will get out of their way to get any information you need. The backup generator also came in handy while the hurricane came passing by. The beach is very close, the "center" (d'Mall) is a... More

boracays3, Owner at Dave's Straw Hat Inn, responded to this review

Thank you for the comments. In response, our location is just a short two minute walk to the beautiful Boracay white beach. We think, as do most of our guests (see reviews), that Dave’s Straw Hat Inn is in a pretty good location for the price as you pointed out (your words); “a little cheaper than others.” Yes, we are...

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
