Most memorable stay in our lifetime so far! I arrived around 7pm and it was already dark. Moment we get off the transport we could see the skies were filled with stars. The next morning, we were greeted by sounds of waves crashing on rocks. The water was crystal clear and the sea bed were comfortably filled with very fine sand and no rocks or sea urchins. And the water level were just nice for swimming/dipping in the sea. There was even a platform where you could jump straight down (ard 5m) to the sea. Heavenly! No breakfast was included but they do sell breakfast on their menu and it was great and value for money, considering the view that you have while enjoying your breakfast. Me and my fiancee spent the whole day and night sitting at their restaurant area (which is right above the water) reading our books, having lunch and dinner, seeping ice cold beer and jumping into the water whenever we feel like it. It was truly the best and most beautiful stay we had thus far. The staff were all very friendly and attentive. The food was good in my opinion and not too expensive. Even though the room does not have TV, air-con or fridge, we really enjoyed our stay there and hope to go back soon.

I stayed here with 2 friends and we absolutely loved it. We were going to mix it up and stay somewhere else the second half of the week but once we got to Spiderhouse and had a look around at the other places we couldn't leave. It is a bit further away than the main area - which is part of the charm. The staff were fantastic - esp Nora and the lovely cleaner who sang all the time. The place itself is stunning - with bamboo steps going down from the restaurant straight into the aqua ocean. This is a rustic place so don't stay here if you're a bit precious- as there is no air con etc. But otherwise stay here!

Spider House was even better in real life than the pictures show. The bamboo deck of the restaurant/bar area was gorgeous and made for a perfect chill out/cocktail drinking/eating spot. They also just finished an extension to the deck at the end of our stay which made it even better!

Boracay was stunning and there was plenty to do but Spider House provided a reprieve from the constant noise and hustlers asking every few footsteps if we wanted to buy something, do this, do that (not unlike any other similar holiday destination). The staff was well connected so we were able to ask for various things like snorkeling equipment, arranging a boat trip, other water activities and how much we should pay for things. Further to that they were super friendly - relaxed. Special mention goes to the cleaner who was always so infectiously happy and bubbly: liked singing Christmas carols!

The rooms are clean and bright and airy. All beds are covered by a mosquito net and have a fan nearby (ours did anyway and I looked in at a few other rooms that did too). The water/shower worked and was clean, the beds were fine and it felt private and secure. There was one day where there was a black out but that happens across Boracay from time to time. WiFi was fabulous - no issues there.

In terms of getting in to town, the tricycles were a short walk away and it cost 100 pesos for the 3 of us to get to D'Mall (the main shopping hub with lots of restaurants/bars and bright lights). 100 pesos in AUD is about $2.70 (circa Sep 2013). Otherwise take the scenic route and go along the shoreline around the rocks to get to White beach which took all of 15 mins (a little more precarious at night but still manageable with a phone light and a companion or more); the walk to station 1 is a little longer (30 mins) but there are restaurants and places to eat just on the other side that are again a little away from all the noise and chaos. Kasbah is recommended and I think the Bar at Fridays looked OK!

Spider House was a little couple-y but so is everywhere in Boracay. People go to Spider House for the bar/restaurant so there is a mix of social visits, honeymooners and others - it was not an issue.

My only complaint was the music - but I have to say that the music throughout Boracay was predominantly atrocious!! so not exclusive to Spider House. It's all about local covers of top 40 songs?? Towards the end we asked to play our own music through the sound system which they were happy for us to do.

Overall I would definitely recommend Spider House. The staff were wonderful, it was clean, gorgeous outlook, wonderful building/structure, good food (banana pancakes for breakfast!), good location and sssoooooo relaxing.

Great accomodation! Fan is not really bad due to its sea breeze at night is really cooler. The manager is great and the rest of the stuff. Very accomodating and lend us Aloe Soothing gel for my fiance' sunburn!! It is very quiet away from the crowd and if you like to go to nightlife spot it is just a km away then you can see the view of the beach while walking

Actually, the first night was a nightmare. We booked 3 rooms, they forgot to clean one room, so they said they will leave the key to the guard. But the guard could not find the key, so our luggage be locked in the room. Same night, one room's power went out, no light, no hot water. I slept with dirty body. But they are good, they offered us free breakfast, and refund a room. Anyway the view is awesome! The second day was wonderful, nice people, nice food, we all enjoy there very much. Awake with ocean was really cool! Btw, I was bit by big ants, so do not forget to bring an ointment!
