Well run with great staff - everybody tries very hard - and its great to see a small place run so well. Close to the best part of the beach. The huts are well maintained so very few issues with the room. Great shower

Hi guys, When I and my husband arrived at Boracay, we were so tired and exhausted from the trip but the staffs of Dave Straw Hut Inn greeted us with smiles and kindness. They gave us small wet towels to wipe the dust and sands off our faces and arms. They also gave us complimentary drinks (shake iced tea). They... More

First of all staff are too kind. but Would be better because there are far from Themall, dry of riding the Seacliff The best thing is that it is quiet and relaxed You can also use the free Wi-Fi here. It did, it was quiet and I like it. It will go there again.

We stayed 3 nights with the guys at Daves straw hat inn. From the start they were extremely friendly and accomodating, they went above and beyond to help with any questions or requests we had. The location is about 200m from the beach at station 3. This is the quieter end of the beach (which we loved) away from the... More

I stayed there in mid October and the staff was welcoming. The location of the hotel is minutes from the beach in station 3 almost towards the end of station 3. I like that area because it's more laid back and less crowded. Most atms are out of service or out of money but there is a bank on the... More

It definitely has the right to be one of the best budget hotels in Boracay, if not the best. We spent only $77 (P3,600) for 3N at a cottage with one double sized bed. We didn't mind the location since it gave us plenty of quiet time in the evening, away from the partying of Boracay. If you want the... More

Most people who have reviewed this place speak of the nice staff, which they are and and the clean rooms, which they are and the comfortable ambiance which it has but the Pancakes is what turned us on. They are huge and tasty and a great way to start a day. The hotel is only 2 minutes to the beach... More

Dave's Strawhat Inn is located a cupple of hundred meters from the beach. It can be a bit difficult to at nighttime, we found it by a combination of google maps and signs they have put up. The fact that its not on the beach has the advantage that its quiet at nighttime and you get a good nights sleep.... More

The rooms and place are fine if you consider the cheap value but it is located 250 meters from the beach and in station 3 which is the most boring station on the beach. You can find better places in a better location with the same price

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
