I made a decision to stay at Dave's after reading other reviews at Tripadvisor, and never regreted it. Nice part of the island - not so crowdy and noisy. Perfect for those, who enjoys sounds of wind and ocean in the evenings. And if you want a party - it is only 15min walk to the bars&disco area, or you...

We are not really budget travellers but we stayed here 7 nights based on the reviews on tripadvisor. The place is very basic. The rooms are simple and clean and the staff is nice. We did not really enjoy the food. We had a couple of breakfast there and one lunch. The location of the Inn is on the wrong...

Where to start?! Dave's is a fantastic little place to stay, far enough away from the hustle and bustle of station 2, yet close enough to walk to all the restaurants and bars. The inn is gorgeous - a few cottage style rooms clustered around reception/dining area. It's beautiful at night when it's lit with just a few fairy lights,...

Getting to Dave's Straw Hat Inn while we were at Boracay, Philippines was not easy with a 7 mths old tagging along. We took a wrong turn, a u-turn and still thought we were lost (eventhough with the signs leading us there). But as soon as we saw the entrance and stepped in.... Dave's Straw Hat Inn is really different...

This is a budget accommodation with a very friendly atmosphere and a chilled out attitude towards you and your motives for being in Boracay. If you want a budget stay in tranquility and peace & quiet, great food, great hospitality, and a short 5 min walk to probably the calmist sea beach i've ever laid in. Plus the fantastic sunrise...

Having returned from Daves on Monday this week after a stay of only 1 week ( I wish it had been longer), I cannot wait to go back. The inn is a perfect hideaway not on the beach but only a minute walk away. Rooms are clean and spacious. Also aswell as being cleaned daily, the towels and bedding were...

Found Dave's online, and called them directly to book the stay. An excellent choice. Price was right, and it was a pleasant surprise to be greeted by such a friendly and welcoming staff. Rooms are simple, but clean and comfy. This is the place to stay if you enjoy your vacations wearing board shorts and flip flops - don't come...

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

“Deluxe rooms have the most space, larger beds and closets. Standard cottages are smaller and could use more drawers and shelves.”
