    Location! Close to the airport, close to the Malecon, and perfect stretch of beach for walking. We are return guests and it’s wonderful when the staff all say “Welcome home”. The hotel “Friendly” is very aptly named.

    Some of its “small cozy hotel” feel has been lost with recent renovations to the property.

    They had food available at all hours of the day! Loved the pool area overlooking the beach. The room was nice and spacious. Nice resort with a great location on the beach.

    The room needed more outlets. Was only able to charge my phone in the restroom. They could do with changing the music sometimes in the pool area.

    The Friendly is an older style resort but is well maintained and very clean. All the staff were excellent and very friendly. Nice beach and pool areas with a good variety of activities and entertainment. Food in the buffet restaurants was generally good and nice options in the a la carte restaurants Azul and Fida. Location convenient to old town and marina with short taxi ride or bus options. We would definitely stay here again.

    No complaints at all.
