HI! It'll be my first time to experience boracay and my trip is scheduled for august 14-17, 2008. I believe that its during the off-peak season. So Ive been asking around, checking out the different forums, and searching for info on the net for an ideal place to stay while i'm there. Maybe someone can help me out. What I'm after is just the basic room, w/ airconditioning, hot & cold shower, clean, clean bathroom and room, cable tv, and just a short walk to the beach. i prefer a place that isn't crowded, accessible to the restaurants and bars but not close enough to ruin a good night's sleep. I have a few in mind but hopefully someone could provide more options and help me decide especially if you have personal experience.
After reading the reviews about Dave's Straw Hat Inn, I'm very impressed with what people have been saying. I go to beaches to relax, enjoy the outdoors, nature, fresh air, and expect to be able to just lie on the beach in peace and quiet. So, would I be able to do that if I stay at Dave's Straw Hat Inn? Is the inn clean, is the location away from the noise? Next, can someone provide me with a contact number or email add so that I can make arrangements with them directly and hopefully get a good deal out of it. And lastly, is it really as good as it sounds? If someone has had a different experience, please let me know.
How about the Boracay hideaway, I know it's located in Station 1 but is there really a big difference with the different station's?
Would you recommend any other resorts in station 1 that I could look-up?
