"Small Intimate Friendly place to Stay"
We loved the place. Its the sort of place that is immediately relaxing. The "reception desk" is a small area on a patio which is shared with their small dining area and a lending library. Everyone knew our names immediately and did everything to provide a comfortable relaxing stay. I deleted their email detailing the pickup details from the airport. […] I emailed Janet and she sent me a copy almost immediately. You don't get that kind of service from big luxury hotels It's an easy 5 minute walk to the beach. If you want a big room with all the amenities (and the price to go with it!) then this is not the place for you. But if you want a very low key, friendly place then stay here!

"Misleading rating in Trip Advisor"
Location is hard to find and is not easily accessible from the beach. The pillows smell bad. No shampoo in the bathroom and staff said they don't provide it. It's expensive for what it is, you can get a much better accommodation for what they're charging.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pleasant place to stay"
Great staff, good location (quiet and 2 mins walk to beach), handy book exchange, decent room (safe and balcony a nice touch for a fan room), food ok...wish we had more than 1 night there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Dave's Straw Hat Inn is nicely situated in the less noisy station 3. Once I had arrived, the staff made my stay very comfortable. They were willing to give me advice, help, or whatever I needed. The room was just as described in the listing with no surprises. The beach is a quick 2 minute walk, and then only about 5 more minutes walk to tons of shopping. […] I wish I had stayed longer in Boracay! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Friendly and comfortable !"
We stayed at the fan hut which is indeed very small.. but they do mention that quite clearly in their description.. the staff is very friendly and helpful.. the location is perfect .. overall I would definitely recommend daves.. -DeepikaGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great service. Quieter location which makes it ideal as it is out of the way from the bar area. One fault, poor internet reception which was important for me during the stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Exactly what we were hoping for"

Janet was so helpful and responsive with our reservations, and she made our transit to from Caticlan airport to the Inn hassle-free. The property is in a great location, really 2 minutes walking from the beach. The cabins are tucked within lush vegetation which adds privacy but also natural beauty. The staff recommended a great island-hopping tour that was a fantastic way to explore the island. And the mango iced tea was amazing! Thanks to all the staff!!
"No better place to stay than here!"

Janet and Dave operate a very welcoming and comfortable place here in Boracay. They arranged our transfers, and had to accommodate us with several changes we had to make due to being stranded in Indonesia due to an erupted volcano. We arrived late and had sandwiches and mango tea ready for us on arrival. The staff are very knowledgeable and will give excellent suggestions on the best resteraunt and places to see. We are here now and I feel very comfortable and the beach is very close. I have bad knees and worried about the "2min walk" but it is a pleasant 2 min walk and as soon as you get there, there are places very close to rent chairs, umbrellas and tables and orders snacks, beverages etc. excellent area if you like quiet and non crowded beaches. Very good choice, I totally agree, this should have a high rating here.

The longer you stay, the more you feel like part of a family. Very relaxed atmosphere, super friendly staff, they loved our kids and our kids loved them! Lots of love and bananas galore for our 1yo! Unfortunately it's not beachfront, but close to the part of the beach we liked best: station three is less crowded than station two (that's where you'll find the mass tourism), but more fun than station one, so the best place for families. We had a great time!
"Super nice place"

Our first meeting with Daves was Janet bringing us sandwiches and mango ice tea when we arrived late at night after one delayed plane. That was so sweet! ( and so needed.. Almost like you read our mind.. ) Thank you for letting us feel like home. You where so helpful and friendly to us. The best place to stay in Boracay!

"Dave's Straw Hat Inn"

If you want to find a quiet please away from the noisy scandal of station 1 this is a good place to stop at. The basic room with fan for two persons was 700 PHP and the one for 4, 1000 php. You can negotiate depending on the length of your stay.
"nice rooms and friendly stuff"

I can fully recommend Dave's Straw Hat Inn. The rooms are clean and decorated like a 3 star hotel. The staff is very friendly and will help further and in a good mood. Dave's Straw Hat Inn is a little hard to find. A large sign on the beach side would be great. The beach is calm and very nice. (much better than on station 2) So, if you are going to Boracay, there is no point not to check in there. Udo
"Best Value for Money"
12/25/13 931Stephen_B Sydney, Australia
I was with a friend and we found every aspect of the accommodation excellent. The place was clean and the room had everything we needed. The reception arranged a boat for us to go island hopping & a barbecue on one island. This was enormous fun. Although the hotel is at station 3 we did not find this any problem. It is easy to go to station 1 or 2 by using a tricycle which are very cheap. The scenery is prettier at station 3 as there are more trees and the sunset is set against boats in the water.

We didn't have a place booked when we came to Boracay and ended up staying in Daves straw hat based on all the positive reviews we saw on tripadvisor. Turned out the reviews were not for nothing. Cosy, amazing staff and exceptional value for money. Some friends were staying in a different place nearby but we all always ended up hanging around in our place. Highly recommended.
