Fat Jimmy’s Boracay Review: 4D/3N Superior Room Stay for 2
Thanks to Beeconomic; we were able to try out this deal.
Whenever you go to a new place, one of the first thing you need to secure would be accommodation and how to get their arrangements (e.g. by air, land or sea). When we went to Boracay last year, we went hunting for a place to stay.
Luckily we were able to find this deal in Beeconomic for a good place to stay in Boracay. The usual rates for Fat Jimmy would be PHP 2,500 for a standard air conditioned room and PHP 3,000 for the superior room per night. This gave us a savings of 50% off plus more since we used beeconomic credits to further drive the price down.
To reserve, you need to call their Manila office and they would relay it to their Boracay office. I encountered a minor issue when both offices were not aligned on whether we have made a reservation already or not but it was fixed right away.
Fat Jimmy’s Resort is located at the end of D’Mall (near the highway). You need to enter a tiny street to get there. It would take less than a minute from Fat Jimmy’s to D’Mall. Along the way, you would pass by Smoke Restaurant (a good place to eat for budget diners).
The room has a TV, refrigerator, closet, bath towels, hot and cold shower and free Wi-Fi. The toiletries only have bath soap and you can ask them to replace them on a daily basis. They offer house keeping during the day so you can also inform them if you want to avail of that.
Breakfast was included in our package and it can be availed at around 7am to 10am daily. You need to inform front desk the day before so that they can prepare it. It also comes with fruit and unlimited juice (as long as the pitcher is still there). The food we had was ok. Nothing special but good enough to start our day.
Their front desk only works during the day and at night, a security guard watches over the place.
When in Boracay, you mostly use the room to rest because most of the time you will be out on activities. We were happy that we stayed at Fat Jimmy’s because we enjoyed our stay there. It was really a great deal and I would be happy to be back there soon.
Thank you Beeconomic and Fat Jimmy’s.
Till next time,
