Dave's Straw Hat Inn would have to have the best service of any place I have stayed. When you arrive you're met with a smile and one of their famous ice teas. They all remember you by name and are always happy to help out in any way possible. If you want to partake in any of the activities in Boracay or arrange a pick up at 4am to get to an early flight, they're happy to help you out and get the best price possible.
The food here is great. If you decide to order the pancakes, make sure you have a friend to help you finish them because they are huge. The rest of the food is great too.
As for the accommodation, the bathroom was very clean and the room has plenty of space and a very comfortable bed. The air-conditioning was good too, although a little loud (as seems to be the case in all budget accommodation).
Location-wise, I think this place is perfect. You walk down a maze of cute little alleyways to get there so it's far enough back from the beach that you don't get any noise at night. But you're still close to all the action. Our friends booked some really nice accommodation with stunning views and facilities, but they missed out on being close to the action.
