    The Friendly‘s. Lives up to its name. Paloma works at the front desk and gives great service. There was 28 of us ladies on the getaway this year. It is our groups 3rd time here. We had some new ladies along with some repeats and everyone agrees it it an awesome place to get away from Saskatchewan/Alberta weather. From Double Double , Luis, Horacio and all the others who names I have forgotten the service is excellent. The food delicious and rooms spacious, clean and comfortable bed. Couldn’t ask for a better resort.

    The Friendly Vallarta was booked for my sons wedding so my wife and I had rooms booked there as well. The service was fantastic in all areas , but some people stood out heads above the rest Firstly Paloma the concierge went so far above and beyond it was amazing.Thank you once again Paloma . then there was Pearla at the Villalinda restaurant,I have a peanut allergy and was completely at ease when Pearla was on shift. She made sure my meals were safe and I was well served thank you Pearla. Then the amazing Double Double at the beach what can I say except that he made the stay amazing.Thanks my friend hope to see you again. Last but not least was Nazavio the chef at the Venecia Restaurant .Made me a meal to order so as I could eat with no fear of allergy problems It was just amazing. All this was done for me with a big smile and in some cases a hug Thank you to all the staff you were great.

    EXCELENTE!!! SUPER FRIENDLY COMO LO DICE EL NOMBRE!

    Pasamos dos años nuevos en Puerto Vallarta, 2017 y 2018. After much research we decided to book Friendly Vallarta because of its name and the reviews. We did not regret it. My child loved it. We had the same room both times we were there. The NEW YEAR'S PARTY is AWESOME by the beach, excellent food, great music and you get to see all the fireworks around the bay. Those have been two of our most memorable and amazing New Year's we ever had. We were not able to be there to celebrate 2019, but we will be there next month and looking forward to it. Hope we can get the same room we've gotten both times. THANK YOU FRIENDLY!!! Can't wait to do it all over!

    The hotel and staff are amazing!! Everyone is so friendly and they truly do live up to their name. It's such a good feeling to do Zumba outside in the beautiful weather and the instructors were great! Been here twice already and would definitely recommend it to others! It's like a home away from home and I am planning to go back next year!

    Another wonderful stay

    We stayed at the Friendly once again Oct 31-Nov 7. This was our 3rd visit and I don't know how they do it but it just gets better and better! We were given room 3905 in the tower. Fantastic view of the bay. The balcony was tight but we managed. Not worth the hassle of moving rooms etc. The food was amazing again. Fresh roasted turkey, shrimp and fish cooked many different ways. The desserts were always tasty and fresh made right there at the resort. That's just in the buffet. Loved Frida's too. The greatest asset is their staff. Many thanks to: Gabriel, Natalia, Mary,Double Double, Rene, Brulio, Kalusha,Palumba etc. I'm sorry if the names are not spelled correctly. We has met some fun people from Canada. The Michael Jackson show is a must see. Our maid was Nardy who did a fabulous job. We are already looking to book our next trip there!
