    We were at Friendly Vallarta in Puerto Vallarta 12/ 2 /2020 through 12/ 9/2020.  When we arrived at the Resort , they took our temperature, & sprayed our bags down with disinfectant. Then we had to walk through a booth to get disinfected. Whenever we went in for a meal they took our temperature and gave us hand sanitizer . We were required to wear our masks until we were seated, & when we went up to the buffet. The buffet was covered with plexiglass, you had to point at what you wanted, they would put it on a plate & hand it to you. If you wanted an omelette you had to order it from the server and they would bring it out . The staff wore masks & we were required to ware masks while in the building. The first day went really well, l felt safe.  Then  a couple  of buses full of young people arrived , & filled the pool's & restaurants, along with young people from the MIO hotel. The  pools were full with young people drinking leaving there glasses everywhere, and not socially distancing. They would set in the pool and the hot tub all day without ever getting out, the waiters would just bring them drink after drink. We were not required to wear our masks around the pool or on the beach. The staff was really nice and took care of us, but the kids we're really bad. They kept us up till 2 and 3 in the morning. The one night about 1 we were woke up by 3 young people (drunk) pounding on our door. Obviously they couldn't find their rooms. The one girl was crying and they were really loud. We have been there before in December. And they brought in large groups of young people by bus. It had never been this bad before. We will not be going back.

    we loved it! we had our wedding with some of our closest friends and family and it was great! The service at all times was outstanding and we got great comments from our guests as well. its a really private hotel and that makes it really confortable!

    My stay in hotel Friendly in Vallarta was terrible really terrible. I bought 3 nights for new year and I was even no allow to use the kayaks because I had to buy another package and they never told me that before. The staff was not friendly at all.

    Still at the Friendly Vallarta as I write this, leaving tomorrow afternoon to go back home. This beach resort is really a gem, and I am very happy to have chosen Friendly for my trip. The staff here is very helpful and kind, the food options, while limited because of covid-19, are all quality. The pools are lovely, the drinks are strong, and the clientele is a really great mix of people from all over. The beach is clean and the view is SO BEAUTIFUL. Some other reviews complain about loud music, but the music they play is really good and (midweek) is off by 11ish pm. If you don't want to be close to the lively evening dancing and music, I highly recommend you get a superior oceanview room, as they are up and set back from the action. I have only good things to say about Friendly Vallarta, I highly recommend this resort and am looking forward to returning! ¡Gracias Friendly Vallarta!
