Absolutely the best resort I've ever stayed in. Exceeded all my expectations. I'm so glad we chose Fridays for our long awaited romantic gateway without the kids. Impeccable service, beautiful food, breathtaking beach and that divine Go Coconut drink which taste I'll never forget. We stayed in a premium room just above the pool. I wish we could stay longer, but my husband was on a business trip in Manila and we only had two nights/three days to spend there (Friday - Sunday). Transfers were very smooth. The staff welcomed us with nice cold drinks and shell necklaces. Top service, - even better than i've ever experienced in Australia. Same applies to the beach. In Australia we are spoiled with beautiful beaches, but this one was literary a paradise beach, one you see in romantic movies and think this can’t be true! We had cocktails at the beach, swam in emerald-green water, done all sorts of water activities we've always dreamed to try: parasailing, jet skiing, snorkelling, etc. Snorkelling near Crocodile Island is great! This statement is coming from someone who's done snorkelling before - in Australia's Great Barrier Reef. Friday night buffet was very special. We enjoyed exceptional food and life performance. Actually, we didn't go to any other restaurants - so much we enjoyed the food at Fridays restaurant! The lobster was especially good. The chef himself came out to ask how we wanted it – crispy or juicy. Breakfasts are also yummy. You get a choice of American, Filipino, Korean and Japanese breakfast. Freshly squizzed juice is great. Unlimited water and coffee is served as well.
The pool is sparkling clean - I saw the hotel staff daily cleaning routine and it's impressive!)
There is something else I feel I need to mention here. Before coming to Fridays Boracay I was somewhat worried about local vendors and overall security of the resort. I was pleasantly surprised with the efficiency of the resort's security guards. They do not let vendors to trade at the resort's beach. They are always there to bring you a towel, they watch your belongings and you do feel very secure in Fridays.
One more thing that gave me piece of mind during our stay at Fridays, is that you know what you are being charged for. If you ask for some extras (extra drinks, massage, etc) they will give you a paper to sign to make sure you agree how much and what you are being charged for. This way you don’t have any unpleasant surprises when you check-out.
I felt so sad we had to leave Fridays, but the experience will be part of our life and the memories will last forever. If I'm ever back (and I so hope I will be!) I will have no doubt to stay at Fridays again!
