This place is amazing. Right on the water, open air, no a/c, back to nature in a comfortable tree-house setting. And the staff is amazing, especially the manager.
We arrived at the Spider House very early in the morning after traveling overnight. We were exhausted and after breakfast fell asleep on the deck. The manager came over and said we could go rest in another room while ours was getting cleaned. Slept for a few hours and when we got up, our room was ready. And were were completely refreshed.
We had a treetop double with a nice little porch overlooking the water. Everything was spotlessly clean.
There was a mix-up with our room at one point. It was an honest mistake by the receptionist. Some other guests landed in our room. Imagine our surprise when we got back to our room to find other people's stuff in it! We didn't really mind. Things happen. But the manager handled the entire situation so professionally and with such grace. It all worked out in the end. It really just showed how well run the place is.
The food is pretty good. Get sushi!
It's only about a 10 min walk along the beach to the more touristy parts of Boracay.
And the Spider House doesn't advertise it very well ... but they have a sail boat you can take out for a SUNSET SAIL. The price is a fraction of what we were getting quoted further down the beach. And it was a really nice time. Just my husband and I.
I would completely recommend this place to anyone. If you're not fond of stairs, just make sure to get a room with just a few steps up. Our room had a good 30 or so. But we liked the climb.
Overall a fantastic place. And if you're afraid of spiders, don't let the name scare you away. I didn't see one in our room! Just a few outside.
