If you want immediate access to lots of restaurants, clothing shops, and clubs, stay at D'Mall / Boat Station Two. But if you like the idea of a twenty minute saunter down the beach to get to such places, and enjoy the quiet end of the beach (also with its share of convenience stores and restaurants), then this is the...

Excellent staff very peaceful and could easily stay there longer then we booked for. Very clean rooms and the cottages all have air-con and plus there is free wifi.... More

I stayed here for a week in July and it's exactly how most people have described it. The staff are very warm, welcoming, and helpful. You get a welcome drink on arrival which is nice. The best thing about the place is how clean the rooms are, the towels are changed daily and all the bedding smells so good, the... More

Dave's is a meandering minute walk away from the main strip of White Beach. Some people have a hard time looking for the place and locals are not too familiar where the place either. The best way to find is that ask them to drop you off to Arwana's Inn and you can go from there walk down the alley... More

Dave's Straw Hat Inn was everything we had expected it to be after reading the reviews online. We had a cozy room and the scenery added to the feel of an island vacation. The staff was very friendly, but they respected privacy and weren't overbearing. There are several nice guest features at Dave's Straw Hat Inn; there is a sun... More

very nice place, not easy to find, but quite, beatiful and tidy place. I was in my wedding vacation during the holiday. I did not ask for any special service and did not really seriously mention that as I have had a wedding ceremony in another hotel. However, the staff still give me a very big surprise when I arrived,... More

This hotel is great, it's far from the action, but close to Angol -5 min walk (station 3). The staff is friendly, the food is good (spaghetti with garlic and pancakes are really good !) and the room is comfortable. I recommend this place :)

I was a walk-in traveler with no prior bookings. I stayed here for 5 nights on May 2014 I was attracted to the place because of the atmosphere. the place has character. I entered the premises and the service I got was immediately quite warm and friendly. And then I found out that the rates were very reasonable. I have... More

I stayed here for 3 nights with my girlfriend in May 2014 and can highly recommend it. Dave's was very cosy and secure with a beach cottage feel and friendly staff to look after us. This was exactly what we were looking for in Boracay, with an eye on the independent and cash savvy traveller. We liked the location, despite... More

Treating guests like a family is the perfect experience we had at Dave's straw hat inn. My husband and I had a great time exploring Boracay. It feels like home when you go back to the hat from a very long tiring walk and then you see the staff welcoming you with great smiles again and again. Everyday their rooms... More

#2 Best Value Hotel in Boracay
Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A Charming Resting Place, which offers a serene and intimate tropical nirvana, located less than a minutes walk to the beautiful Boracay Island "white" beach. Allow the staff to cater to your needs while you spoil yourself in the beauty of Boracay. Enjoy the family atmosphere and those amenities that most big Boracay resorts offer without the high prices. We have been referred to as the "best budget hotel on Boracay," but without skimping on the comforts. ... more   less
