So OK, there are hundreds of 5-star-rated reviews for this hotel. I was so excited to have our family booked here. BUT... We're a family with 2 twin boys (aged 4 yrs old). They said they don't have a Family Room and insisted that we stay in two (2) different rooms instead. And I was like "Family Vacation in two... More

Greetings, and thanks for the comments, but you never stayed with us nor did you request the said room in person so I am not sure how we put our hand up or as you stated .Maybe it seemed that way by the text or email we sent to you. I read it all over again... More

It is impossible to recommend Dave's Straw Hat Inn enough. We arrived late on the 29. Of October and immediately fell in love with the relaxed vibe that was everwhere. We had intended to stay for five nights but had to stay for one more and would have stayed indefinitely if not for a pre-arranged itinerary. It was impossible to... 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 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
