"Classic"
Stopped on the island for three days after an Manila business trip. Solo single white male with scruples (completely out of place among the Viagra Americans with their 20-year old Pinay arm-pieces). Fridays: Excellent digs, clean, rustic, great service. Love the veranda hammock. Boracay south of Boat Station 1 put me on edge with its party atmosphere; Coming home to Fridays always felt like an oasis. The sun hat and selfie stick peddlers do inhabit this end of the beach, but it's quiet and has a calm cool vibe. The food could use improvement, but what a spot for a drink and a sunset.

"Fridays and Boracay"
In the quiet area of Boracay.The service quality was good. The beds on the beach are elegant. It is far from Center of attraction or any other restaurants. You need to take a tricycle but you have to clim up stairs. There is Algae problem on entire white beach which forms during the summer time also the water is so shallow. Recommend you not for more than 2 days.

"Amazing staff!"
This resort is fantastic and exactly what we were looking for when we decided to come to Boracay for a week on the beach. We travelled with a two year old child and the resort was perfect for her. Safe and the staff were so amazing!!! Great location on white beach. Far enough away from town so it's quiet but close enough to walk and enjoy the local restaurants etc. The breakfast in the morning was great and the mango juice made to order was amazing! We will stay here again when we are next in Boracay.

Real paradise!!!! This is definitely the best hotel on Bocaray. Staff is just perfect-friendly, attentive and unobtrusive. Great meal in the restaurant from Italian chef. This hotel has the best beach. Good security-you will not be disturbed by vendors. And the main is atmosphere that allows you to feel real nirvana. The only minus is the construction works next to hotel- does not disturb so much, but in case you have sleeping problems, it’s better to ask bungalow far away from construction. Will definitely come back!!!

"Great hotel with real resort feeling"
This was my first stay at Fridays, although i have been to Boracay several times. I could not have been happier with the choice. Accommodations are mostly in 2-3 room 2-story structures -- designed to look native construction (lots of wood details and decks, thatch roof, etc.), but are fully modern rooms. The rooms are a little spartan compared, say, to ShangriLa, but they have all the amenities of a 5-star hotel (mini bar, quality linens, good beds, etc.), and they are well maintained and spotless clean. Nice mix of hotel guests -- a lot of couples from there 30s to their 60s, as well as a number of families on holiday -- and i got the feeling that a number were regular repeat visitors. And this hotel has a real "resort" feel to it -- they have a number of activities, meals, and events sponsored for the hotel guests. Solid kitchen and a nice comfortable bar. And as noted in other reviews, the staff is really good. It is 5-7 minutes by trike and a nice 20 minute beachwalk by foot to "downtown" boracay (D'Mall, and Station 2) from Fridays -- which I appreciated but might not work for those looking to be in the heart of the bars and restaurants. It directly faces the excellent White Beach, w/ great swimming. Finally, they have excellent shuttle service to/from Catlican Airport which, except for tips, seems to be included in the rates. The only downside was the construction next door -- pretty steady racket during during the day. Not sure how long it will go on.

"Short Getaway"
I purposely selected this hotel for privacy - away from the crowd, and the island vibe - hammock, bed-netting, etc. It was a quick 2-day getaway for my wife and I and we wanted privacy and the quiet walk on the beach. We could have done without the heat and rain but that's part of being in the tropics. For most part, the hotel was quiet and our morning or late evening walks on the beach gave us the solitude we were seeking. Our stay was pleasant and relaxing and the staff very friendly and accommodating.

It was nice when look at the room and place, however when I was trying to take shower at 10pm, no water heart and wait for 30 mins with no reply and call back again. Then, the hotel offer me to change a bigger room to stay which is very Nice of them. Much appreciate their offer. Food is good there too. She go outside is a little far but no complaint.

boracay is building up quickly, but Friday's still provides an authentic experience on a nice part of beach. there was contruction next door, which was a bit of a nuisance at night, but imagine this won't continue for much longer. also, the music selection at the beach bar and resaurant was pretty cheesy.

"Land Dispute Shut Down Half of the Resort"
It's nice .... but it is way over-priced (rooms and food/drink). There's a big land dispute going on now and half of their land has a big fence/tarp around it. The room I was in was right next to this so when I walked out of my room, all I could see was a big white tarp. I didn't know about this until after I had arrived. The beach is amazing and this is the "quiet end" of the beach. The sand on this end is nicer too. I'm often in Boracay. Next time, I'll stay somewhere cheaper.

What an amazing experience - We recently had our honeymoon at Friday's and could not be happier. We wrote to the hotel before we arrived and everything was amazing from that initial contact. The staff are amazing. We were in room 28 and it was fantastic. Hardly noticed the fact that the hotel has been cut in half by a bizarre property dispute. We were incredibly happy with the proximity to the beach and different places to eat nearby. Great service by Jojo and AG. They were fantastic and enthusiastic to make our experience amazing! They succeeded.

"Best location on the beach"
Friday is a resort with staff who can't do enough for you. The food is fantastic an choice of cocktails endless. The deluxe room was a little standard with basic bathroom facilities but this resorts location cannot be beaten. The resort sits at the end of the beach making it quite and secluded from through traffic, yet within a short walk to the main bars, shops and restaurants. This place is a perfect place for relaxing break.

"Amazing service made up for everything else"
Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Friday's. I've categorized them between the pros & cons below. PROS: AMAZING customer service no matter where we were in the resort (restaurant, beachfront, front desk, cleaning staff, security, etc), great breakfast (the smoothies were SO good and super fresh), our room had direct access to the beach. CONS: rooms need some updating, there was construction when we were there so no pool access and it was loud during the day (when we and the baby were napping), the restaurant menu was the same all day long (even though it was somewhat extensive), it was a little far from the main strip of town (D-mall) but a quick and cheap tricycle ride away. Overall we would definitely go back again!

We had a truly wonderful stay at Fridays. The location is absolutely perfect, ideal location on the quieter end of Boracay with one of the best beaches in the world. Food was superb with a good selection of local, spanish, Italian and western flavours. The included breakfast was one of the best on offer. The staff, where to begin! They make you feel special! Nothing is too much trouble, they're friendly, like to laugh with you and offer advise on activities and what not to do when asked. No pressure sales etc. The room was spacious, comfortable and well maintained. With sand right to your door and a short stroll to the restaurant, bar and that beautiful beach. There was / is a land dispute in progress which saw fences splitting the resort, construction noise was minimal and caused little impact. Lets hope this is resolved quickly so the resort can return to it's full potential. Definitely will stay here again and recommend to all my friends. Thank you Fridays for a wonderful romantic experience.

We spent 5 outstanding nights at Friday's and loved every minute of it. Amazing location. Ambience was superb for a very relaxing stay. The style and setting of the accommodation reflected the island of Boracay and pleased not to be in a "cool chic building" which probably better suited to urban locations. Excellent food and all prices reasonable for hotel of this quality. Spa treatments also excellent. Hope we can return soon but next time for longer

"A Honeymoon Escape"
We loved our stay at FRIDAYS in Boracay! We were transferring from one hotel to the next and FRIDAYS offered to pick us up in their shuttle for free. Once we arrived, we were given shell leis and fruity drinks! Our bags were handled by someone as soon as we got there and we were lead down to the lobby to check in. They lead us to the beach front area where we were given beach towels to use while we waited for our room to be ready. BTW, the walk to the lobby involves some stairs but it wasn't a bad walk. I just wouldn't recommend it to someone with knee issues or older folks. My husband and I were on our honeymoon while we were there. Every day, someone came in to clean up our room and the housekeeper would leave cute messages for us written on a leaf and leave us chocolates in the fridge! The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The only downside, but doesn't deserve for the hotel to lose a star, was the construction happening next door. They didn't start until at least around 8AM though, the hammering noise was just a little annoying. Other than that, they had AMAZING service, their restaurant and AMAZING food [breakfast was also included in our package], and the place was very clean and beach front! It was absolute paradise! Their staff was so good to us, that they even served us dinner, even though they were getting ready to close! I could not have asked for better service or a better hotel. Thanks FRIDAYS! We'll be back for sure!
