We stayed at the Friendly from March 14th to 28th, It was our second time in PV and 1st time in an all-inclusive resort, personally I am not much of an all-inclusive type but sometimes you must go along with the majority.
As mentioned by many reviewers, the Friendly is an older resort even though they have completed some renovations. However once you realize that it’s pretty clean, you forget about some of the outdated decorations and enjoy the vacation.
At the Friendly it’s all about the ambiance, the facility is quite acceptable, the food is good and people are cool, especially the staff, they’ll do all they can to service you well and you don’t get that nagging feeling that they’re waiting for a tip and they’re grateful when they do get one.
We also like the fact that you could catch a bus for the old town right in front of the hotel, so when you want to experience other types of cuisine it’s easy and cheap to go downtown.
I’ll take the freedom to suggest some improvements:
- Working gym equipment(I don’t mind older equipment as long as it’s working)
- Hooks in the women’s beach toilet(a suggestion from my wife)
- More brands of cereals
