My partner and I stayed in the premiere suite and it was absolutely lovely. While the prices were not that much cheaper than the Shangri-La, the service was great and Fridays really gives you that island resort type feel. We were impressed by the caliber of the beach and the location (nice and quiet), however we were annoyed by the amount of tourists that walk by the beach to take a picture of the Fridays sign (perhaps that should be moved to the other side of Fridays).
Despite the few items I will note below (as mere suggestions or points to be aware of), our holiday was sublime and Fridays really did make it a truly relaxing holiday. Friendly people, great beaches and good value for our money. Staff were also extremely helpful.
The restaurant food was mediocre at best - nothing fancy, and actually quite overpriced compared to the rest of the island. Drinks, too, were pricey. They should just keep them the same price as happy hour all day long (even though happy hour is three hours long).
The rooms were clean, although starting to show some age - a bit more pest control would be nice (ants) - although nothing alarming.
In March there is a change in water temperature and the ocean produces a lot of algae that is unsightly and also smelly. I think that if the hotel were to clean the base of the beach during low tide, and keep up with the maintenance they would be able to feature their star attraction (beautiful beaches).
