Staff relates to "Friendly." Have visited facility a number of times and always felt more than welcome.

Great food and excellent staff, clean rooms, and general areas

The staff was the best.. very friendly and very attentive to all out needs

This is tough because the staff at this resort are wonderful. It’s just an old hotel and food is nominal. But, you can’t beat what you get for the price and the friendliness of the staff. They gave me a fabulous room with killer view which I appreciated. Very family oriented so you need to be prepared for a lot of children. For two days I didn’t have any water in my room.

The Pool área layout was great. Loved the multiple pools and how clean and manicured they kept the beach sand. The activities were fun and they did a great job on the event.

I love that this hotel is eco friendly! They don’t use any straws and will provide you with bottles you can get all your drinks in. It’s a little inconvenient bc you feel like a child drinking out of a zippy cup but given that the beach is free of plastic, I’m all for it. One thing I definitely would say could be better was the food. I only had a great dining experience at the sushi restaurant and when we had dinner out the quinceañera event within the hotel grounds. Aside from this Luz,Hugo and double double were amazing and super FRIENDLY!

I think the food was very repetitive in all Restaurants. The last day we leave the room at noon, We put our luggage store in the hotel while we waited for the departure time of our transport and went for a walk, we returned to the hotel for our luggage and the girls were hot and we went to the ice cream for the girls, but since we entered the hotel an employee follow my son and when He was in the ice creams and the employee stood in front of him and made the employee's gossip and they didn't give my granddaughters ice cream, this bothered me a lot because we were staying for 4 days and it was not fair to me that at least as a courtesy to give a girl an ice cream, this attitude made me change the rating for this hotel

Very nice had a great time and was very relaxing. Food was great

Staff was very, very friendly; perhaps one of the frendlies we've seen in similar properties. The buffet food (main dishes) was particularly good. Activities most of the day. Shows were not that good.

Great location and very friendly staff. The hotel was beautiful and the room was a great value for the money. However, this is very much a family resort and the walls are thin so you will hear the children in the room next to you.

Very old hotel. I reserved an ocean front room and I was told that the rate I got did not guarantee me to get an ocean front room and I had to pay 35 USD extra per night to get an ocean front room.

clean right on the beach and the staff bent over backwards to make it a wonderfull stay

They stole my I phone x and rayban sunglasses. To many local people in the hotel that make my experience not good all them people where there for free on some time of promotion or timeshare. It’s people that is getto,poor and with no respect. When I stay in hotel I want to feel save comfortable and secure with no worries about my belongings. Be careful if u stay here. Don’t recommend. btw it was on two separate days that’s they stole my stuff one day in the pool chair while I was in the pool and another day in the lobby.

This was our first time visiting Friendly Vallarta and we will definitely be back! Everything went smoothly from check in to check out. The pool water temperature was perfect and there was plenty of seating for relaxing around the pool deck. The beach was kept very clean as was the grounds in general. My only suggestions for improvements are to make more updates to the rooms as ours had some outdated features and to add more variety in the food options at the buffets. It also would have been nice to see more advertised kids activities. This was our favorite vacation and we can not wait to visit again the near future!!

The staff is very friendly and spending hours setting up and taking down activities each day. A lot goes into making sure the guests have everything they need

The staff are all very friendly and helpful. It seems like there was a shortage of staff in some of the restaurants. We had to ask several times for coffee....they seemed run off their feet. The evening shows were good but only lasted 30-45 minutes. This is our second time at this resort and will definitely come back again.
