    Christmas at Jimmys

    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.

    Party Island

    ... back into bed. Once we surfaced we decided to explore the quieter end of White sand beach and found ourselves some sunbeds, had a swim and hair of the dog. After another gorgeous sunset we were beginning to like Boracay. It might be a bit too touristy for us but it's still pretty, the locals are lovely and it's a great place to people watch (especially when you find a bunch of chefs from one of the hotels being made ...

    ... she had no more standard room so we got upgraded to the 'deluxe' at not extra cost. This a little bit of comfort then.

    We hope the weather will be good today so we have a chance to be outdoors at least. Boracay is really a paradise island (in summer) and there are lots of water sports to do.

    We obviously chose the worst season to come. I guess we spend the last year with hardly a drop of rain so it is fair. There are lots and lots that I loved about ...

    ... boy not much bigger then j. No clothes, not parents or siblings that I had seen. There was no more candy for me to give him so I grabbed the Pringles from our bag and sat by him holding out a stack. He ate them. Later when a crowd had gathered to watch he could not see. J was hosted up on Matt's shoulders so my hands were free to lift up this little boy. When I picked him up he started to fuss and wanted down. I decided to go get more chips so I could just sit ...

    ... keep them cold for us in her fridge. Much more promising than our cooler idea in this type of heat. Our night turned out unexpectedly rowdy. We met up with our Swedish friends Jeff and Anna for dinner and a pub crawl, claimed to be the #1 thing to do in Boracay by Trip Advisor. Pubcrawl – 1, Steve and Pam – 0. We had a blast.

    Highs and Lows

    A travel blog entry by alexisbarber on Aug 07, 2012


    ... I’ll start with the highs. Boracay is beautiful – there is no question. The water is clearer than any place I’ve ever seen, with white sand beaches, and a beautiful tropical atmosphere. I would get a time-share there in a heartbeat if it was just based on beauty. The party scene is amazing – there is always something to do and somewhere to go, any night of the week, even during the off-season, which is when I visited. Because Tom and I were in ...
