    Great family orientated place, myself and 2 friends stayed at fat Jimmys over Christmas 2011/2012 and had a great stay...

    Ivone was great, got us breakfast every morning and it was included in the price all for like £4 a night....couldnt ask for better. Plus it was great being able to watch a nice happy filipino family celebrate their Christmas eve.. Was quite heart warming considering my friends and I were spending Christmas away from our own families.

    Location is just slightly behind all the main stuff on station too, so if any other person complains about it, well my advice, get off your arse and walk less than 5 mins and you'l be rewarded with that white sandy beach.

    Granted tis probably is not the best location for the slightly older or those with walking disabilities as the path to the beach is quite narrow and often crowded with passing bikes.

    Only negative was the inital greeting as we got off the pedicab thing as there was loads of begging children near the entrance which can be very off putting.

    ... In an instant, we were in a circle in the water and a lighting bolt decided to strike our circle. I don’t know how lucky, or unlucky, we were that we shared the voltage of the lightning to be able to live to this day.After being in shock, we ran out of the water within seconds, then the rain got heavier and we had to run all the way (not a short distance) back to the hostel.We spent the rest of our time in Boracay diving, skim boarding, and cliff jumping (at Ariel’s ...

    ... room down a dark alley a couple blocks away from the beach. After a bit of shopping around we found several beach front hotels for 2/3rds of the price of what we were paying at Dave’s. We ended up finding one unreal deal that we could not pass up. Angol Point Resort was perfect and would become our new home for the next 11 days. We found out later on that the price that was offered to us by one of the young workers at the resort was ...

    ... I ask Kuya why? then he told us that even a small particle from a cotton fabric can cause obstruction to the holes from where the water comes in and out. It is a combination of fresh water and a sea water.

    ... off season in Boracay, there are a fair number of tourists, but this club was primarily locals. After a couple hours of dancing and indulging ourselves, we all decided to pack up and call it a night as a couple of us were leaving the next day. When we walked outside we realized Andrew, one of our friends from England, was still in the club, so I said I would run back to the beach side of the club and grab him because I knew where he was. What I experienced next, I ...

It now contains the shrine of Dr Jose Rizal, who was imprisoned and executed here in 1896, 'for inciting revolution' against the Spanish colonials. The area is now designated a Shrine of Freedom to Rizal and all Filipinos who fought or died for ...
