For background, I stayed at three other resorts during my 21 day stay in PI - Shangri-La Manila, CocoGrove Siquijor and Friday's Boracay. I was impressed with all the reviews so I decided to book three rooms for three days - four adults two kids. Three words describes Dave's - Service, Sevice and Service. What it lacks in not being beachfront or in size, it easily makes up for in service. Jenny was extremely helpful in setting up tours and all the tour companies they use were reputable and delivered what they promised. The ATV tour, and All day Island hopping tours are must do's. The ATV tour is a great way to get up to MT Lohu and the incredible views of the Island. The All day Island hopping tour is a great way to see the other main attractions - caves, crocodile island, puka beach among other attractions. Just an example of the great service - My wife loves SPA treatments so Jenny booked the Princess Treatment for her at Mandala Spa ($200USD). Since it is a little confusion getting there from Dave's, Jenny had a staffer escort my wife to the SPA and also called the SPA after the treatment was completed so she could escort my wife back to Dave's. I would definitely recomend Dave's. A worthwhile note just so your fully informed is that you do have to walk through some local houses and other smaller resorts to get to Dave's location. The first impression might leave you with some doubts, but the staff at Dave's quickly put's you at ease with welcome drinks and genuine smiles and greetings. Best lodging value period!
