Spider House Resort
Ranked #43 of 151 Hotels in Boracay
Reviewed February 6, 2014

Spider house is a beautiful one of a kind resort located on a cliff near Diniwid beach.
It's very rustic and has a hippie vibe to it.I had booked a superior room,which was quite big, had 2 beds and 2 extra lounge beds.No windows, just the open view of the ocean and Diniwid beach.It was mid-January,so it was quite cool and some would not even need a fan in the room.Food/Breakfast was excellent and the staff was very warm.I stayed on white beach for 3 days and 3 days in Spider house, and it was very serene.
You go to spider house for an experience and not for 5star luxury.
You do see many insects and the floor is little noisy,you can also hear other guests in their rooms, but that didn't really kill our experience.
Sitting on the deck,drinking buko [coconut water] and mango shake,overlooking the turquoise water and taking a refreshing dip in the ocean.....what more can one want?
It was a WOW experience for my Wife and I,will surely return to Spider house again.
They should have complimentary breakfast, that is the one thing I didn't like.

Room Tip: Book a superior room/suite, it's very spacious,excellent views and not very noisy.

Spider House is one of the most relaxing and scenic places I have ever stayed. If you don't want to be in the middle of the Boracay tourist jungle, prefer somewhere chilled and with the ocean right out front then this is the place.
It's not 5 star on the normal scale (if you're fussy about your bathrooms this not the right venue) but is 5 star for atmosphere, service, relaxing vibe and that beautiful view!

Where do I begin to explain how perfect this place was? Firstly the view was the best thing about this resort, our room had a perfect view of the beach and the ocean and waking up to crystal clear blue water was the epitome of relaxation. Our room had two double beds, a sitting area and fresh flowers. I slept like a queen and had no problems with bedding, towels or bugs. They made an effort with mosquito nets and the room smelled great after it was made up. We had breakfast every morning and although the service was a bit slow did the delicious food make up for it. The omelets were especially good. just jump into the ocean if you want a morning swim. We did not spend to much time there during the day but went to see the sunset there almost everyday. Diniwid beach is about 30 mins walk to the middle of the white beach and 10 min trike ride to station 1. But the views and perfection of this place should overshadow any bad review. Eyes lit up every time locals asked us about where we were staying, best sunset view and best chill area on the island was just some of the feedback we got! SpiderHouse will indeed see me next year!

Room Tip: All rooms have perfect views. The bar closes at ten and the resort goes quite.. So the rooms above t...

Unfortunately, I was only able to stay for one night due to the resort being completely booked up the following nights. I would have loved to have stayed here during my entire time in Boracay. The location and views from this place left me in awe. I stayed in Room #1 and didn't ever want to leave the room! The views were out of this world. I found myself just staring out in disbelief for hours. I felt like I was dreaming! I dozed off on the day bed listening to the sound of the waves crashing below. The room was directly above bar but everything quieted down at night and it was quite peaceful. The staff was friendly and helpful. The bathroom had a small ant problem but the place is outdoors so it wasn't unexpected. Overall, an incredibly unique, relaxing, refreshing, and amazing place!

I love spider house! All staff are friendly and nice and warm everything is nice. I have nothing bad to say about this place. Know that spider house is not a short walking distance to the dmall, so if you want to be close to the busy and loud white beach this is not the best place to stay at. But if you are vacationing to relax, spend more time to yourself and enjoy the paradise of diniwid then OMG please do your self a favor and book a room here. Its well worth it. The room is rustic and dont expect aircon or carpets, you can always get that in the city! All in all spider house is a good place to stay oh i mean perfect place to stay and relax! I wish I'm there right now. Shout out to ate Heidi!!!! And all the staff.

Our family of four stayed four nights at Spider House Resort for our Chinese New Year break. This is the place to go to relax and unwind. Room 10 was on the front above the water - a perfect place to watch the world go by. Two queen size beds with mosquito nets provided great comfort along with 2 day beds in the open living area, perfect for kicking back with a book or checking emails with the complementary wifi.
This is as close as you can get to feeling like Tarzan, Robinson Caruso or the Swiss Family Robinson, except they never had wifi, electricity or a flushing toilet. This was like living in a treehouse - one huge room that opens out to the world. No windows (cane blinds and calico curtains), thatched roof and cane mat flooring gives it that rustic feel that one might be looking for if trying to return to nature. Please avoid if you want the sterile concrete feel that many other resorts might offer on Boracay.
The restaurant and bar is perched on a bamboo deck overlooking the sea. We ate 90% of our meals here and couldn't fault anything. Great food, great drinks, great service all at a reasonable price. After a meal, climb down the ladder for a swim in the crystal clear blue waters.
This has been a perfect holiday for us - a chance to unwind in perfect surroundings. Next time we're in Boracay, Spider House Resort will be first on our list for places to stay.

Interesting experience with the rooms themselves, exactly like camping in a bamboo hut. Unfortunately the room was right above the bar, sound travelled through bamboo flooring (no padding) very easily. Shower and toilet were disgusting, do not go in there without shoes and antibacterial wash! Staff were not that friendly, except Michelle who we met on the last day, she was lovely.

The owner's son likes to keep his friends entertained on the deck right below the rooms until all hours, and then uses aggressive profanities when you complain, charming young man, really.

Probably the real down point.... was the semen filled tissues and condom wrapper that had been left of the desk in the room for our delightful surprise.

Avoid if you can, Best Western offers clean and proper accommodation here in Australia for less a night than this place. You can hear EVERYTHING from the rooms next to you, even the sound of other guess breathing as they sleep, among other things.
