Visiting Boracay, with all the nightlife and tourism, we never knew we could find such a relaxed place, with the frendliest and helpfull staff, that you could think of. They always made sure to tend to our needs and wishes...and the daily "towel origami", waiting for us on our bed when returning from the 2 min walk away beach..gave us...

Stayed for 5 days here on december and i would say that the staff are friendly and approchable, you can actually chat with them and they will provide you information you need about the hotel. Also the cleanliness was well maintained and are pancakes was good :) overall we haven't not encountered any major problem.

Me and my wife spend 9 days at this inn in January. This inn is VERY clean. They change linens and towes daily and after they clean the room you cannot find a sand grain. The pancake as said are huge and excellent. The location of the inn was not perfect for us, as we went many times during the...

Great little cottages with very friendly staff. We had a great time here. Its near the end of a busy beach, so good access to the beach and restaurants but quiet. Staff was very helpful arranging transport from the airport.

At first glance, it could be hard to tell why Dave's stands as one of the most outstanding resorts in Boracay. However, the feeling after spending one peaceful night after the loud and engergetic nights at Boracay, the feeling sets in. The peace, comfort, and the sense of home that is given at Dave's cannot be replicated. Honestly its hard...

We just spent five nights in Boracay and were very happy with our decision to stay at Dave's. We have nothing but positive things to say about our visit, including the following highlights: -Quiet, convenient location. Dave's has a great location -close enough to be a two minutes' walk from Station 3 while far enough that it is quiet at...

I stayed here 3 nights in January. I only really used the room and hotel for sleeping and showering since I had friends at other hotels and went out exploring most of the time. But I had a lovely little room one floor up with a little balcony and a nice shower. I enjoyed the stay and would recommend for...

The staff were very nice. The rooms were clean and it was conveniently located close to the beach. It is set back far enough from the beach that it is quiet, but still close enough to wander down and enjoy the beach. Staff organised tours for us and made transferring back and forth to the airport easy. Definitely recommend staying...

Stayed here for 3 nights during our trip to Boracay. Would recommend this to anyone and would stay here again. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Would be nice if the hotel had a few more hotel amenities- shampoo in the bathroom - umbrella for use on rainy days. Overall - very good place.

Great little spot away from busy area. It is close to the pier so it's quick to get there after a long and somewhat confusing transfer process. Overall, the rooms were clean. Although small, they do the trick. The beach is literally a 30 sec walk down the alley and it brings you to quieter station 3 area which was...

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.
