If you are planning to stay in Boracay, this is one of the best budget places to stay. We have rented 2 rooms, the service apartment & standard room. Here are the reasons why I recommend this resort: 1. Budget-friendly 2. Excellent Service 3. Neat & Spacious Rooms (You can cook in the service apartment room, light meals and have coffee.) 4. Clean resort. 5. It's in Station 2. Walking distance to the beach, restaurants, and pasalubong areas. 6. They offer tours and their tour guide Mark is very friendly and accommodating. 7. They serve good breakfast. Our 4 days and 3 nights in Boracay were very smooth. It is also because Mark organized our itinerary and none of our time was wasted. Sadly, we didn't have time to take pictures in the resort. But definitely will get back to staying in Fat Jimmy on our next visit. Bravo!!

Huge room suitable for family. Their staff are so kind and helpful especially the receptionist. We love the place; it’s clean and comfy. We will surely come back again soon. Good location, very close to everything. No hassle at all. We were at room 301. The room was spacious with complete toiletries such as tissues, towels, shampoos, and soaps. The airconditioner was working well. The room comes with a TV and refrigerator. It was a great stay.

It was a great experience here at Fat Jimmy's. Thank you for your great service. Your location is highly recommended, at the center part of Boracay. Will be back some other time. I was able to walk and exercise at the same time since all that I needed was just around your place.

I highly recommend Fat Jimmy's if you are looking for a budget friendly accommodation which is worth every centavo. The staff are very corteous and friendly, and makes you feel at home. Though this is not a beach front property, the beach is easily accessible, as well as commercial establishments. The rooms we booked, and the en-suite t&b are also clean and well maintained.

First time visiting Boracay and I came across Fat Jimmy's on some of the online posts that I read as one of the recommended budget accommodations in Boracay. The place is near the main road yet just a few minutes' walk and you will be at White beach. The room was big enough for the 3 of us and had a small kitchenette so we could cook our meals since we prefer to save money instead of eating out. D' Mall, D'Talipapa and Budget Mart are near in case you need to buy something. Looking forward to staying here again.

I would love to commend the staffs of FJR 💟 Our check in time last April 12 was at 1:00 pm. But they were able to allow us to enter our rooms by 9:30 am which I super love. Because we were all tired from our 4:30 flight going to Boracay. Also, they really make sure that everything we needed for our stay were completely given to us. From complimentary hygiene stuffs to teaching us how to operate the kitchen stuffs at their service. Indeed, superb experience. 💟
