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

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

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

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.

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

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.

YES absolutely you can see the sunsets from FV. The food was good. The Italian restaurant inside the hotel was particularly good, but you need to make a reservation, which is easy enough to do in the downstairs restaurant in the morning. The buffet restaurants, the downstairs and restaurant on the deck were good, both with omelette and pancake stations. I liked the restaurant on the beach, more for the atmosphere then anything else.
