Fat Jimmy's is one of the more affordable accommodations located in D'Mall. Location-wise, it is convenient because it's close to the supermarket and the main road, but also a couple of steps away from the restaurants inside D'Mall. The only thing about its location I didn't like was that we had to go through the alley where garbage was being... More

We were visiting Boracay for the first time this summer, and opted to stay in budget-friendly Fat Jimmy's based on good reviews we've read online. However, before reaching the said establishment, we had to pass through a stinky alleyway from D'Mall Palengke, which immediately made me suspicious. Trying to be optimistic, we checked in at the hotel and this is... More

After traveling for almost half a day from Manila to Boracay, what I like about this resort is it's location. Since we arrived in the afternoon, we did not have a hard time to look for a place to eat. Since they are located beside D'Mall we knew that we can eat anytime. They only serve breakfast that's why it... More

This hotel is recommendable for those who are in budget and only looking for a place to sleep in. Just take note too get the AC room because you cannot have a proper ventilation with the Fan room that you'll opt to be sleeping in heat rather than opening your windows to invite the mosquitoes in your room. But if... More

This is a very good hotel for budget travellers...AC room and close to beach for around 1500 paisos is a steal! Rooms are clean and have all basic necessities including hot water...but dont expect a good food at hotel. We stayed two nights and very comfortable stay.

My friend and I stayed in Fat Jimmy due to proximity to D'mall. And it's located between station 1 & 3, Friendly staff, they gave us good discount though I know that November is starting to get peak when we went there. Basic amenities, comfy bed, clean bathroom, good air conditioning unit.

Boracay is a great place to visit even more than once a year. For people who are on a budget, I suggest you try this place. It is located at the back of D-Mall, a painless 3 minute walk outside. I too love the breakfast here and the staff are very friendly.

We availed a promo online and the accommodation is on Fat Jimmy, We have no idea about this hotel back then. All the way we thought it is just steps away from the beach front but as we went on, it was at the back of the "Talipapa" market. The market is a bit noisy and crowded. About the hotel,... More
