Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here

Would recommend Sun, Dec 20, 2015
Excellent value for money. Pleasantly surprised by the food offerings, for example roast suckling pig at one of the buffets and amazing choice of freshly squeezed juices at breakfast (kiwi, melon inter alia). Always something decent available 24h. This my 3rd visit here and I shall come again. Pv and this resort are great fun :)

Would recommend Thu, Dec 17, 2015
Great location in hotel zone. Great service around pool and beach. Never went thirsty. Food was fine. Rarely get high quality food at all inclusive but it's hard to screw up breakfast and lunch. We ventured out at night for dinner but was very satisfied with our stay. Drinks were good and plentiful . Bus stop out front was convenient

HORRIBLE

Would not recommend Wed, Dec 9, 2015
The hotel was noisy, outdated, and overall not a great experience. The staff is the only thing I have to say positive about this hotel. It was more stressful than a relaxing experience. We checked out the same day.

They Stole My Credit Card Numbers

Would not recommend Wed, Aug 26, 2015
We got home to find that the credit card that I let them swipe for room incidentals was used to make fraudulent charges in the states. I didn't use the card for any other occasion (cash only). Someone on the hotel staff stole my credit card information and made fraudulent charges. This is the first time this has happened at a hotel that I have stayed at. We had to provide our own transportation to the hotel but we managed to do that fairly easy. The arrival was good and we got checked in without fault. The bell boy brought the bags to our room and was very polite. We had a great room with a view overlooking the pool with the beach and ocean in the background. The room was very clean, fairly modern with plenty of space. We were near the elevator but there was little to no noise. There were plenty of food choices there was always something to eat and something to do. The location is close to lots of shopping and restaurants. The staff never begged for tips that was a good feeling. There were only a hand full of Americans mostly Mexicans. The staff spoke good English. If you stay here don't use your credit card. We will probably never stay at Friendly again!!!

Friendly is Right!

Would recommend Sat, Aug 15, 2015
We arrived and were handed a cold drink while we waited to check in. When we did check in the paperwork was all ready and the process was easy. We were given our room cards, and sent off...we little did we know that they had given us the Penthouse Suite!!! The room was cool, and they had left a bottle of champagne for us! We napped, headed down for an after flight drink, and found the dinner buffet. It's true, everyone is friendly. We stayed 6 nights. We felt like, while this is not a super fancy resort, there was nothing more we wanted. The pools were full, the beaches were full, the staff was attentive, friendly, and gracious. I felt like they really wanted us to have a great time. And we did. The view! Amazing!
