“Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2013

The spider house was in a perfect distance away from town app. 2-3km walk along the beach from station two. If you want a pampered, air conditioned hotel with televisions this isn't it. However, waking up to the open air and view of the water is unmatched. Only negatives are the ants and there's more than one suite to the house so we were unable to get the suite we wanted.

We stayed for four nights and it was fab. Friendly staff who did everything they could to make us feel welcomed. They helped us arrange a snorkeling trip around the island and a scuba dive. Okay there were geckos chasing ants in our room and a couple of spiders as well but it just adds to the charm of Spiderhouse!

This is a place I won't forget and I would love to get back soon!

It was a totally amazing experience staying at the Spider house resort with my family. We stayed in a family suite top floor and the view is spectacular from the balcony. Walking into the water straight from the restaurant for a cool dip anytime of the day, watching the sun set into the sea were all too good to be true!

Love the fact that the Spider house was away from the crowd and how authentic it is surrounded by nature, not recommended if you are looking to stay somewhere very private though as rooms are not sound proof and don't have enclosed walls. Super convenient when we got picked up by our boat at the door step for our diving and island hopping tours. Staff are super friendly and welcoming, will definitely be back!!! Spider house is definitely the highlight of our trip : D

Fantastic views, truely an unforgettable experience. Stayed in "Superior 1" for 3 nights - and I only saw two mini spiders, one gecko and one bird and a cat :-) Very clean, nice people, nice menu.

Our toilet didn't flush for a day - as we were backpacking we were used to "emptying buckets of water" into "not flushable toilets" and it was fixed very soon. My boyfried is very tall so the bed was a bit too short for him.

The Spider house rocks. The location is a few minutes walk from the white beach stretch that hosts all the bars and restaurants, so it's a great place to chill without the hectic pace of Area 1 and 2. The rooms are all open to the sea with magnificent views. Every night people who don't even stay there come to chill and watch the sunset. Great place to meet people and hang. From the main sitting area you can walk down the ladder and swim in the beautiful waters of the South Pacific and if you want a beach you just walk (or swim) two minutes to the left of the resort. The food is nice and simple and the Paul is more than willing to help you plan any of your activities. I will say this, the rooms, due to the open plan, do have some 'spiders' and some of their friends walking about. So if you want a/c and upscale rooms, go somewhere else. If you want a truly memorable stay in Boracay, stay at the Spider house. Hope to be back again someday.

This surely is a great place to stay - i mean the location, atmosphere, views and people are great. on the other hand I wouldn't recommend it to people seeking comfort and high hygene standards. there are lots of spiders and other insects as well (that's because of Spider House being located on a cliff between rocks and trees).

We stayed at Spiderhouse based on the great reviews on trip advisor and the pictures on the web. First the positives.
The view from the room is outstanding. You can't get a more serene and beautiful view than the sea, a few boats dotted along the horizon.
Also the breakfasts were really good, especially the mango smoothies and banana pancakes. However service was really slow and the prices were higher than what you would pay on white beach, but to be fair we found that with other places on Diniwad beach too.
We had paid for a "superior room" and were expecting something a little different to what we got. I was aware before going that this was "posh camping" and had no illusions of a bug free, high end hotel room but wasn't expecting smashed concrete flooring and a dark and dingy shower room with just a toilet and shower directly next to it. The only sink was in the kitchenette area in the room.
I had been under the impression that these rooms had outdoor shower rooms with natural light and were the most luxurious rooms they had. It's a shame as I really wanted to love this place but left feeling like it was all just a little disappointing.
