        My Birthday Solo Travel”

        Pros: 1. In the heart of Station 2, D'Mall, lots of restaurants, boutiques and their famous Coco Mama is just few steps away from Fat Jimmy's. 2. If you plan in taking a mixed room use, like a dorm type, Fat Jimmy's for you. 3. Economical. 4. Staff are friendly and they attend to your request. 5. You can smoke outside of the room while drinking a cup of coffee. 6. A quiet place to stay. You have a peace of mind. 7. You can bring your own instant coffee or instant noodles. You just ask for hot water and there... Instant meal. 8. For a dorm type room, they have a designated locker to put in your valuables. 9. The security is 24 hours. 10. They have hot shower and bidet. Amazing! Cons 1. It's in the back alley. Not beach front. 2. Wifi signal is low inside the room. You need to go outside to receive better signal. 3. They only offer all day breakfast meals.

        Value for money, accommodating staff, great location”

        I booked just a bed space but I didn't fail. It is just enough for me since you don't want to spend your time in Boracay just in your room. The location is great (just a few meters from high way but the beach is also accessible). Near to almost everything you need. They also offer "paluto" or cooking of the things you bought from the market at a very cheap price. Staff were great from the guard to the receptionist. I will stay again in Fat Jimmy's once I return.

        Boracay Escapade”

        Twas our first time in Boracay and we decided to stay at Fat Jimmy's Hotel. The room is clean and quiet. It was just walking distance from the Boracay beach itself, the place is also near the market which was convenient to us. We just don't like the the garbage area once you step out the hotel. Overall, our stay at Fat Jimmy's was great. I suggest they can serve free breakfasts the next time. Thank you, Fat Jimmy's Hotel! :)

        Best place for solo travelers!”

        The room that I got was a dorm-type room for 4 people. I only be needing a place where i can leave my luggage and a bed to sleep on it since I was out all the time during my stay in Boracay. The hotel is very accessible to any establishments nearby (D'mall, restaurants, banks, etc.) plus it's near the front beach too! The Wifi cant be reached to my room but it has a strong signal if you wanna use your data! The staff are very hospitable and very approachable whenever i need help! I strongly recommend this place. Also, the hotel is family-friendly too since it is budget-friendly. :)

        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.

        I truly commend the staff of Fat Jimmy's. from the moment we arrived until we departed they were hands down super courteous and warm. when the storm arrived last Sunday, they helped us move our stuff quickly to an available higher room. they made sure we were comfortable since we had a baby with us. they even texted me when I left some food and asked if we arrived safely in manila. I am sure that with a staff as a nice as theirs, management is also good to them. definitely bang for your buck. kuddos to the staff of Fat Jimmy's! we already miss you.

        Close walk to the beach, in the heart of station 2 (D'mall). Very friendly staff. Big beds too.”

        Overall, we had a very nice stay at Fat Jimmy's. 2 minute walk to the beach but still private. Would stay there again.

        Very good”

        The staff, including Arlene and security guard at night, were really super friendly and accommodating during our stay. You cannot access wifi in your rooms, but wifi on the island of Boracay isn't fantastic. It was definitely great for its price, since we were very close to D'Mall and White Beach. If you have any issues, make sure to talk to the staff. They will try their best to help right away!

        Nice location”

        I would recommend Fat Jimmy's in terms of location. The place is near the convenience stores, for commuters and has an approachable staff. However breakfast is not included in their package.

        Staffs are very corteous and hospitable. Breakfast is a little expensive. But it's Boracay, what do you expect? Location is near D'Mall. So very accessible to everything you'll be needing.

        Rather an old hotel but location to beaches super”

        Easily accessible to the beaches , wet market etc. Staff are marvellous & helpful.

        hotel needs some renovation. nevertheless we had a pleasant stay here. more to somesort of family hotel. seems to be always full house cos can find mostly families with children staying. b'fast that was included are simple & average. however eateries are plentiful in boracay. beaches are certainly clean & awesome & for those beach lovers its heaven.

        Great Deal During New Normal”

        I booked the shared room and it's super clean. They also provide you the toiletries that you need and mask. The AC is cold and maintained. The Wifi tho is quite weak inside the room. Staffs are very welcoming and approachable. If you wish to travel and save up at the same time, book in Fats! Super recommended.

        recommended budget hotel for overnight stay only”

        staffs were very friendly and hospitable. we booked for a standard room only since we will be staying for 1 night only and will check out early. room is nice for its price and toilet is clean also. though there are mosquitos in the room but it didnt bother us so much since we put citronella patch. breakfast is not included in the price but you can get it for only 165 net per pax. reasonable price!

        I recommend the place for inexpensive accomodation.”

        For those who run out of place to stay, Boracay Backpackers save the day! It is inexpensive, very near Station 1, also near the Main Road.
