First of the the staff at Dave's Straw Hat Inn are AMAZING! They always greet you with a smile & are so willing to help you in any way possible. I travelled to Boracay alone, but I never felt alone when I was at Dave's. Secondly, the food the soooo tasty, I ate breakfast there every morning & never had... More

Had a few options as far as hotels were concerned as my wife planned our anniversary trip. Since it was not the peak season, we opted to check in as walk in customers. First at hand was La Carmella (as advised by our friends), but once we were there, the staff did not even care less that we were there... More

Awesome island, awesome inn, even better people! We stayed for 5 nights at Daves and even though we had rain 3 of those days the staff was as friendly and helpful as possible which made our stay so pleasant. We were given an upgrade for FREE upon arrival to a really nice and big comfortable room. The location is also... More

2nd trip to Boracay last trip was abt maybe 7 years ago. Boracay is overcrowded now, but made the right choice in staying at Dave's it was quiet and away from the crowd, and I just love the 10 minute walk along the beach or along the main road to meet our friends at station 1. Daves is also near... More

We spent half of our honeymoon at Dave's it was a good experience the pancakes are a must have! More than anything else though it was the staff that made the stay worth it. They were always smiling and willing to help or answer your questions. They literally made you feel the family vibe of the place. Would recommend Dave's... More

After reading the great reviews for Dave's all over the Internet, I may have been setting my expectations a bit high. I was really picturing the staff going out of their way for the guests, the grounds to be beautiful and the rooms to be nice, and with a great price. Yes, the price was great for those on a... More

We stayed here for 5 nights. We walked in and was given 1100php per night. I will base my review/ratings comparing the price to other places throughout SE Asia, not Boracay. The price I got for this type of accommodation was good, but at full price I would not rate it as high. The rooms (called cottages) were small, clean,... More

First time in Boracay and was looking for a no frills, fuss free place... This place had loads and more! Service was prompt, every enquiry was answered asap, and the staffs are really friendly! Would not think twice to stay again at Dave's when I return... Two thumbs up!!

I stayed there for about a week 3 years ago, and this time I stayed for over 3 weeks. Most of the same staff are still there and just as passionate, friendly and helpful. Once again I can happily recommend. As others have mentioned, the rooms are clean and the place is in a good location, at a quieter end... More
