What a wonderful family resort. Hard to review, day one seemed like typical crowd, day 2 the pools were completely full and not nearly enough chairs to accomodate guests, Day 3 (wed) it seemed as though we were the only guests at the resort, Day 4 it was hopping. Cheerleading competition in the area had what I would imagine as every bed full. Lots of families and VERY busy. The beach area ALWAYS had chairs and was nice except for the vendors. I can appreciate vendors selling their wares... Read more

Until new management decided to run those of us with outstanding oceanfront timeshares out & regardless of number of years remaining on contracts, without notice, were informed we no longer owned timeshare resort was upgraded using ridiculous annual fees by TIMESHARE owners, it is run by an individual that epitomizes dirtbag, scum, lowlife.

I went with some friends of mine, and the "4 star resort" was more like a 2-3 star. The room was clean, but the small grounds were extremely busy with a TON of kids everywhere...not exactly relaxing for 3 moms! Very loud techno music blaring from the pool into the beach area all day long. I couldn't even hear the crash of the waves! Beach vendors were accosting us every 3 minutes in this small, roped in beach area about 50 feet from the waterfront. Rough waves at the beach, not a great place to... Read more

We stayed at the Friendly Vallarta Resort in March for 10 days. The hotel is not new, but the newly renovated main floor is beautiful. The entire location is very clean! I don't know if we ever left our room or walked around the hotel without seeing someone cleaning somewhere. The disappointing part for us is that the food was mediocre. Some of their special events had some good food items and there would oven pizza off the beach is great. But generally the food was just okay. The staff is fanta... Read more

My husband and I stayed at the friendly for a week in May. This was our first trip to Mexico. The 2 best things this place has going for it are the location and the staff. We wanted to be in the city and close to everything so the Friendly was perfect for that. The staff are amazing and the resort and rooms are very clean. When we were there the other guests were mostly Mexicans. My hubbie and I liked that we got to meet different people and practice some Spanish. I really felt like I wa... Read more

We traveled with our family and grandmother. It was small enough that we didn't worry about losing grandma or the kids when they went around. It was clean, super friendly and updated. All rooms in the tower have a beautiful view of the ocean. We upgraded with no problems 2 nights into our 14 night stay. Initially we were on 2nd floor and upgraded to the 8th floor. Food was okay, can get a little boring as they served same food weekly, otherwise, it was good enough for what we paid. It was... Read more

So let me start with saying that the staff of this hotel is amazing...very much catered to us and were very friendly, started to know our names after a couple of days and some of the staff even knew our favorite drinks...I had read reviews before booking and was never really made aware of the fact that this hotel pretty much caters to the locals. My husband and I are from the US and I think there were maybe 3 other couples also from the US otherwise they were all local residents. I also was un... Read more

My friend and I stayed at the friendly Vallarta for a week in January 2016. The staff was really social and they remember ours names after just 2 days. We met a really nice lady who made delicious cappuccino with cinnamon on it ;) She is really fluent in english, so she helped us to learn a bit of spanish. More over, the food was really good at all hours, the chef made some tacos for us at 2 am. We really like our trip and we will probably come back in 2017

We read the reviews from people who stayed in the Friendly Hotel before we booked our trip. We were truly disappointed since the rnce reviews did not match the experience we had when we stayed at the hotel.. The hotel is old and it smelled musty. It definitely needs to be updated. The Wi-FI is very slow.The food is awful and no varieties of food at all. They have 4 restaurants but they serve the same food in all 4 restaurants. The coffee taste awful. The entertainment is mediocre . This hotel a... Read more

The Friendly is really just that. The staff are amazing. Double Double is awesome!! The resort is close to everything, the food is better than most all inclusives, it is clean and well priced. Good entertainment, but if the majority of guests are Spanish, then the entertainment is generally in Spanish. Will most definitely go back.

Sometimes when one goes on vacation, one would like a new experience, but still feel like they have the comforts of home. The Friendly Vallarta is like that; your home while away from home, but in a new land. My wife and I have stayed at the Friendly on three occasions, as well as other locations in PV, but we return to the Friendly, because of the great staff, good food, comfortable hotel and proximity to local attractions. The staff are simply the best of any resort that we have stayed at o... Read more

We stayed at the Friendly for our tenth anniversary (May 2016), and it was my first trip to PV. We really enjoyed the people there; the staff really are friendly and helpful! The food was always good, the drinks always flowing, and the staff always great. The room was nothing special but always clean, and the bed was comfy. Thanks to other reviews, we knew a bit about what to expect before we stayed here. What we didn't anticipate was our own style and preferences, as we've travelled very littl... Read more

My girlfriend and I did a quick 5 day get away to the Friendly Vallarta at the beginning of June. We booked through Westjet Vacations. After clearing customs we met with the Westjet rep and were cabbed off to the resort. It took maybe 15 minutes from the airport to arrive. We arrived and booked in. We were given a complimentary drink and then led to our room on the 10th floor. Lots of room. A king size bed. A writing desk. Couch. Small glass coffee table and a bureau for your clothes.

I just booked my 5th trip to friendly vallarta, I have never experienced such a welcoming place. I stayed at hotels with bigger pools but never once have I felt so welcome. Uriiel, Brook, Pamela, Cary, and Gustavo are fantastic entertainment staff. Karina holds a special place in my heart, not does she spend her evenings performing and dancing for us, but during the day she runs the child care and truly loves every kid she watches. This hotel is a gem and all because of the staff.

Really enjoyed our stay at the Friendly though smaller than what we expected it was really clean, the staff really helpful and friendly especially the guys in the upstairs terrace resturant. We loved double double and all the guys who made each day special. We found the food was ok but variety was not always there and with only one √? la cart on the property it got a little repetitive after 10 days. Our room was in the tower and face the ocean and pool so that was great we didn't get the king ... Read more

I was at Friendly for June/July 2016 and I absolutely loved my stay! Running a program for 350 high school students isn't easy, but working with Friendly Vallarta made it the smoothest program I've ever had. They truly live up to their name - some of the most friendly and helpful staff I've ever encountered. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous, newly renovated and always clean. The hotel rooms are large and beautiful, most with a gorgeous view of the ocean. Living on the 12th floor with the view of... Read more

Perfect for best griends. Tons of Canadians! Best service on the planet. Shout out to 'double double'! Food is amazing. Pizza oven is a saving grace for the tequila aqua-cize. Small resort. Not great for families. Best time ever!
