Boracay is a great place to visit even more than once a year. For people who are on a budget, I suggest you try this place. It is located at the back of D-Mall, a painless 3 minute walk outside. I too love the breakfast here and the staff are very friendly.

We availed a promo online and the accommodation is on Fat Jimmy, We have no idea about this hotel back then. All the way we thought it is just steps away from the beach front but as we went on, it was at the back of the "Talipapa" market. The market is a bit noisy and crowded. About the hotel,...

It was my first time to ever go to Boracay last May and it was for my birthday. Booked our accommodations through Philippine Hotel Reservations and this is the hotel that had the cheapest rates at the time. Please be advised that the hotel is located right beside the market so I dont advise you to wear your bathing suits...

Friendly staff, clean room, and great breakfast, you can take out egg and ham sandwich in lieu of your breakfast if you really need to leave early for your flight. Plus very convenient location, actually you are at the center of everything in Boracay. Just be wary though of the smell of nearby wet market as you enter the gate...

Hotel is located far from the beach but very near to almost everything you need - grocery, wet market. I even got a haircut at the nearby barbershop. Breakfast is delicious, with unlimited coffee, juice or tea. But apart from that, the hotel is just a basic B&B - no fancy amenities, no good views from the room, even. But...

Slap bang in the middle of everything, 2 minute walk to the beach with its beach bars and restaurants (perfect for getting home after a few buckets of San Miguels), there’s a supermarket 100 yards away. An ATM and laundry service just outside the gate of Fat Jimmys. Less than a minute to the main road and tricycle taxi drop/pick...
