If you are looking for a place to stay in the beautiful island of Boracay, Fat Jimmy's is definitely worth a try. We got a standard room good for 2pax for P2,500/night with breakfast. The room was nice and clean but what annoyed me was the interior design of the cr. It looked messy. But at least the heater worked....

We just need a place where we can leave our things, take showers, and sleep for two nights. We were given a 3d/2n accommodation with breakfast for only P2000 per person in our group, really cheap, so we made the downpayment right away. LOL. Location is good because it's far from the beach front, we can sleep well without hearing...
