This place has been around for some time and I heard so many good things about it. With high expectations I booked 2 weeks at Frendz Resort and it was absolutely great!
First and foremost: The rooms are basic and the hotel is not fancy or anything close to 5star. What makes this place so special are the people who are working there. They are doing an outstanding job to make everybody happy. Everybody of the staff introduced themselves with their names which made me feel like i was staying with friends or family, everybody knew my name and asked daily how I'm doing and if everything is alright.
This is a budget hotel, but still, the rooms are cleaned every day without even asking. I was impressed. We just had the simple fan room, but after a few days we had some problems with too many flies in our room. The staff was amazing, they immediately offered me another room which was much better and bigger. I got transfered into a family room with a big balcony and A/C. I'm sure this room would have been much more pricier but they didn't ask for more money and I was able to spend my last days in this wonderful room.
The breakfast was fantastic, much better than in many of the fancy hotels in Boracay. At Frendz they serve real coffee, not the 3 in 1 crap. Everything was delicious, the omelet, the pancakes, the breakfast was actually my highlight of the day.
Frendz is an amazing place especially for solo travelers as you will make friends in no time. The common lounge is always crowded with travelers from all over the world and several times a week there is a big dinner with live music at the place. But in case you don't want to meet anyone, every bungalow has their private terrace where you can relax.
Another great thing was that you can lend skim boards, that was so cool, we had so much fun skim boarding! They also have snorkels, fins, etc to rent free of charge.
I absolutely loved my stay at Frends, the staff really makes a difference and makes this place so amazing that nobody wants to leave. Fantastic place, I'll definitely stay here again!
