    Perfect place to stay fot couple travelers!”

    We’ve stayed 5N6D and the place is nice and clean. It is very accessible to all. It is only a few 2-minute walk to the beach. What we’ve loved most is that D’mall and supermarket are just steps away from the hotel. It is super convenient for us because most of the time we cooked. Also the staff were friendly and accomodating. The only cons is that there are rotational brownout so almost everyday we experienced brownout but the good thing is they have generators for alternatives. Overall the whole stay was amazing. Will recommend this place and will absolutely booked accom here again when we plan to go back to boracay.

    Staff is very very approachable, nice, and always happy to help. The way they treat you is like a family member which made me more comfortable and have that "homie" feeling as I travelled alone. Hotel is 2-3 minutes walk from the beach but the good thing about it is that D Mall is just around so you will not be bored while walking since you will stores from D Mall. They also follow health protocols so you will feel safe. Will definitely stay here again! - Kevin N.

    Budget Stay”

    Just 5 min walk to beach front. You will go through a more or less busy streets packed with stores from food/resto/clothe stores til you reach Boracay Beach front. Just 30 sec walk in the back, you get to access the main road of Boracay where you can call E trikes to drive you anywhere in the island. The usual costs are 100 PHP ($2) if you will book the whole trike yourself. Would be less cheaper if you pay alone. Could be around 20 to 50 PHP I estimate. ($0.5 to $1) Boracay has been fully renovated with the main road having good pavement and own spacious sidewalk (this wasn't the case back in 2015) I think the main road goes in circle along the island so you can use that if you want to go to the quieter part of Boracay (other side) If you are tired from walking from one end of station to another end, just let them know what station would you like to drop off so they would take you in the nearest spot where you can drop off. Should take within 30 sec to 3 mins for you to walk

    It was our first time in Boracay and it was a great vacation because of Fat Jimmy's hotel. We got more than what we paid for. The rooms were spacious and clean. The bathroom was clean and hot shower was working well. The staff was so hospitable and kind especially Maam Arlene. She helped us book our tours and gave us directions on how to get to several places in the island. We will definitely come back to Fat Jimmy's whenever we visit Boracay again. A big thanks to Fat Jimmy's for making our vacation memorable.

    I stayed there for 2 weeks with the purpose of working from the hotel on a daily basis. The wifi was very reliable and they even have a generator in case of power outtages (which I heard is common in Boracay). Facilities were great especially given what we paid for. All the staff members were very friendly and courteous. Location is superb too. Its right beside D Mall and about a 3-min walk from the beach. I'd recommend Fat Jimmy's 100% to anyone.

    I’m glad I stayed at FJR! ”

    Yes. I’m glad I decided to stay at FJR. Not only because I got it for a low price here at Agoda but because it was so near D’Mall. Yes, it wasn’t beach front but Everything was easily accessible. For a week at the island this was helpful. It was also quiet in FJR. Very helpful with getting rest from a day out doing island activities or just staying out in the sun a bit longer than one would do in the city. 😅 Staff are really nice, helpful and attentive. Our room was clean and cozy. It was difficult to control the mosquitoes even after they spray repellent and disinfect the room but you’ll have to bring your own repellent lotion or spray, just to be safe. It’s not a fancy hotel you might imagine being in for your dream trip to Boracay but it’s definitely a home I’d go back to when the island calls me again. ☺️

    Its fascinating how they were able to keep up with the power supply ,they even have ac and water while most other hostels were struggling during the blackout period in the islands. But now the island power supply is up and running tho. Just one more thing it would be nice to have the beds a little bit of privacy as I noticed most hostels here doesnt have that.

    I am impressed with Fat Jimmy's amenities. Just what I needed as a first time solo traveler in Boracay. I booked a one night shared room with them since I am on a tight budget and the room that I got surprisingly is very spacious and comfortable. It got two double deck bed, it got a proper working air con, I got my own locker and the restroom is very spacious I get to exercise and do my regular crunches ha ha. Best of all it is in the main entrance of D*Mall talipapa market. Kudos to you Fat Jimmy I will definitely put you on my priority list when I get back to Bora.
