Fat Jimmy's! Thank you very very much! We enjoy our 3days and two nights stay. 5mins. walk in Beach, Super market and food stores. Fta Jimmy's in 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, the service is great. The staff who prepared breakfast every morning is pleasant. The room is clean and simple.

Room Tip: Choose a room in the second floor.

We stayed there for 4 days and 3 nights.

The Pros are it is cheap; near a supermarket, D*Mall and D*Mall Palengke; Resided at Station 2 where the most scene are; near the highway; the staff are very much accommodating; rooms are large enough for your budget; superior rooms has cabled-TV and ref while the standard Rooms have double deck and a large bathroom; breakfast has a variety of choices and served for each guest; they have the foot wash so you can wash off the sand on your foot before coming in to your room; and just about 5-minute walk from the beach.

Cons are because it is near the D*Mall Palengke, there are lots of mosquitoes in the rooms so you'll have to bring yourself your mosquito repellent lotions; no good views around, no spa, gyms or pools; and the entrance to the hotel gate is quite dark.

It was my first time to ever go to Boracay last May and it was for my birthday. Booked our accommodations through Philippine Hotel Reservations and this is the hotel that had the cheapest rates at the time. Please be advised that the hotel is located right beside the market so I dont advise you to wear your bathing suits when you step out. People will stare at you. The rooms are clean and the bathroom is okay. The staff is very friendly.

Friendly staff, clean room, and great breakfast, you can take out egg and ham sandwich in lieu of your breakfast if you really need to leave early for your flight.

Plus very convenient location, actually you are at the center of everything in Boracay.

Just be wary though of the smell of nearby wet market as you enter the gate from the d’ palengke.

If you are travelling on a budget, I highly recommend this place!

Hotel is located far from the beach but very near to almost everything you need - grocery, wet market. I even got a haircut at the nearby barbershop. Breakfast is delicious, with unlimited coffee, juice or tea. But apart from that, the hotel is just a basic B&B - no fancy amenities, no good views from the room, even. But what really sets this hotel apart from the other B&B's are the hotel staff. The hotel staff are genuinely friendly and helpful, this is what I liked best about my stay. Keep it up!
