Dave's Straw Hat Inn Boracay Reviews
Close to the perfect beach Aug 22, 2011
A travel buddy of mine booked directly with the hotel for 3 nights at a total cost of US$74 for a room per night for 2 people in April 2011. Breakfast was not included, but we were given a voucher for a discounted breakfast at the Blue Mango Inn (where the view of the beach was … WOW).
Dave’s is a 15 minute tricycle ride from the Cagban Jetty Port , and costs about AUD$2
1. Located at Station 3, which is the quiet end of White Beach
2. Standard room with double bed, air conditioning, tv and safe
3. Clean bathroom (shampoo, soap and towels only)
4. Complimentary wifi
5. White beach is a 5 minute walk from door to sand!
6. Wonderful, friendly staff who speak excellent English and can answer most of your questions
7. Big screen tv in the common area next to the reception
8. You can order food and drink while relaxing in the common area. There are also lots of books for you to borrow and read, as you laze on the beach.
9. Next to a massage parlour practicing Thai, Swedish etc massage techniques (not the dodgy kind!)
1. Wifi signal is weak in the rooms
Overall very good - recommended for budget conscious travellers only. This hotel was noted in a SE Asia guide book that I had with me and it was highly recommended. I did note that there are a lot of hostels and budget accommodation in the vicinity.
This place is located in the alleyways of Station 3 and a map may not be able to help you get there. Upon being dropped off by my tricycle, I needed a local to guide me to Dave’s. The first of many encounters with the friendly and helpful locals.
It is short 5 minute walk to White Beach. And when you see it, you will be blown away. If your idea of a picture perfect beach is azure waters, soft white sand, and palm trees swaying slowly in the wind, then that is White Beach. The walk along White Beach is dotted by restaurants, bars, dive centres, tour operators, and souvenir stalls.
The walk along the main strip can get crowded, especially around the shopping district of the D’Mall (Station 2). As you reach Station 1, you start to hit the bars, which is where the party is at every night!

Amazing Hospitality Apr 05, 2011
Loved staying at Dave's Straw Hat Inn when I was in Boracay. It's a pretty setting, with absolutely amazing hospitality. At the end of my stay I felt like the staff was like family.
My only somewhat negative is that its a hike to Station 1 or 2. But if you want to stay away from all the craziness, this is a great choice.
