Like every other reviewer, I have to draw my hat to Spider House for creating what has to be the most jaw-droppingly gorgeous hotel/hostel I've ever seen and -hand down the most attractice place to stay in Boracay. The views from the bar area and the rooms are simply stunning and the private decking with direct access to the crystal-clear turquoise water is utterly brilliant.
The whole house is made up of bamboo and wood and is beautifully lit up with fairy lights at night. It has the feel of a pirate hang-out and hanging out in the bar in the evening was definitely one of the great pleasures of our holiday.
Now, for the downside: the noise. Because the house is made of bamboo, and most rooms only have three walls (the last one is left open for the views), you can hear literally everything from people walking in and out, the (sometimes very) loud music from the bar, your neighbours, and worst of all, the damn pumpboats putputting across the bay from 6.30am onwards. It doesn't offer much privacy or the chance to rest but it is definitely a gorgeous place.
The food and drinks were good value for Boracay (and very tasty) and the owner was good advice on things to see and do, so overall, we would absolutely recommend this place - and would go back ourselves.
