Spider House Resort
Ranked #46 of 146 Hotels in Boracay
Reviewed December 20, 2011

We have just spent 5 wonderous days here. The location couldn't be any more spectacular, right on the water, you can dive straight off the deck into the water. You can't do anything here but relax and just chill out. We spent endless time relaxing on the deck and got some phenomenal photo opportunities. The staff here are excellent, very friendly and relax, attentive without being over the top. The food is also great. the rooms are very special, no doors or windows and you just sleep under a mosquito net. The bathrooms are basic but functional. if you expect the traditional, slick 5 star hotel experience, this is not where you should come. But if you want an idyllic, chilled out, relaxed stay right on the water, this is for you.

Overall we had such a fantastic stay! Reasons being:

*best location perched over the water at Diniwid beach
*when making our booking the level of service and care we received from Danny was fantastic
*close enough to the loud and garish white beach should you want to go there (5mins there by tricycle costs 100 pesos or 15 min walk)
*lovely and welcoming staff - the whole bunch are amazing! We'll miss them (see you next year!)
*amazing sunsets
*food was fantastic
*free wifi if you want to use it
*great value for money with that view - nothing has beaten this place yet and we're travelling around the entire Philippines for a couple of months!
*great swimming straight off the decking and the clearest turquoise water
*beautiful rustic and creative style Nipa hut accommodation - very romantic
*great way to get away from the hectic pace of the rest of the island and a massive bonus there's no tv - why would you want to watch telly when you're on holiday!!!

Things to note:
*the owner has opened his private house up to guests so it's homely and romantic. If you want sterile 5* concrete hotel rooms go somewhere else
*the menu range is small due to the size and style of the place but the food is amazing (you can actually walk to boat station 1 for more restaurants/bars via the beach in 20 mins at a very slow and gentle pace - 15 mins for us at a comfortable pace. Or just catch a tricycle they're always waiting for you - try calling John our new found tricycle taxi man on 0063-917-3277630)

Thanks so much to Alan, Danny, Netnet, Marning, Diniwid, Akai and the rest of the Spider House crew for making our stay so enjoyable - Merry Xmas and see you all next year!

no aircon, no television, a queen-sized mattress on the floor, standing shower and not even windows..but..

it was definitely one of my most memorable moment in Boracay. being back to basic makes you appreciate the beautiful nature that surrounds you. with the waves crashing under your room, definitely makes you slow down, relax and enjoy the beautiful Boracay.

You will never get rooms like this, incorporate with the nature with the water beneath you, beautiful views (not even at the White Beach) and crabs crashing in for the night! :)

What an amazing place to stay! If your looking for a great view, amazing staff , traditional bamboo rooms, good food (try the longanisa, its amazing!), than this is the right place for you! Where else in the world can you watch the sunset over the ocean right from your room, fall asleep to the sound of rain hitting the water right under you, and waking up to the sunrise right in your room? Did i mention how amazing the staff is? Danny, Weed, Hidi, Lung Lung and the rest of the staff (sorry for the spelling and the names i forgot) are all amazing, The staff, my new friends, are incredibly friendly and extremely hard working. They will do everything they can to make sure your stay is a good one. They even let me throw a party where i brought my own food and drinks and they cooked. They are willing to go way out of their way to make sure your happy. This resort made my trip to the Philippines a trip i will never forget. I can not wait to return to Spider House!

Me and my friend stayed in Spider House for 3 nights and it was amazing! Imagine youre staying in a traditional Filipino hut with direct access to the beach. You can jump/swim right away from your room! They have menu for food but we only tried their breakfast menu and it was good! You can rent out their snorkeling gear and swim directly from there. Its far from the white beach if you like parties and all but its doable to walk from diniwid to the white beach except in the evening which is very dark. We walked twice like late evening without any problems but i dont recommend it because its dark and lots of courage to walk. It costs 50 pesos to go there from D'Mall during the day and 100 pesos in the evening. Overall, we enjoyed staying in Spider House and would definitely come back if i have to visit Boracay again! So peaceful and calm---definitely worth calling a Paradise!

Unfortunately for us, when we arrived, we was told since tha typhoon just hit last night, there's no electricity there, and should be able to fix by night. The place is special, open room over looking the sea, the waves hitting the rock down under. But soon it turns into somekind of nightmare, another typhoon hit the island by night, a mini one says according to local. But of course, no electricity again, in consquencies, no hot water as well, the wind blowing directly into to room, since there's not even windows or doors, just bamboo curtains, it's not fun. When the waves is strong, you can even feel it's a bit shaky, the sound of waves is scary when you're in the dark, can't sleep. Anyway, it's just not good timing for us. In general, the place is nicely located if you want to stay away the noisy nightlight from the white beach. Half hour walk along the beach you can actually walk there by the way.

Room Tip: Ask for room on the top, bigger with nice private deck and sitting area.

Well lots have already been said about Spider House before, and we were here for 2 days before we realised the room didnt have a tv so i guess that says it all there is so much to do here you never stop , and the food is also great , its very basic so if you want 5 star this is not for you but if you want romance and a true Filippino well run resort this place is worth a visit you wont be sorry ,,
