We just had a fantastic 10 night holiday at Fridays in Boracay with our 2 young children aged 4 and 6. We stayed in Beach Hut 1 which was in a fantastic location as opposite the restaurant and only steps away from the beach. The rooms were comfortable and simple but it's the beach that takes your breath away. Fridays has the best beach front on White Beach by far!!!. We totally relaxed during our stay. The staff at Fridays are excellent, friendly, helpful and gave us such great service. Jo Jo, A.G and Erwin were just a couple of the service staff who made our stay extra special. They had sand toys for the kids to borrow and play on the beach and kids loved playing with the ping pong table. We were blessed with great weather, as we only had 2 rainy days out of 10 during the wet July season. Sure other hotels may have fancier rooms but it's the beach and atmosphere you come to Fridays for. If you want a 5 star plush hotel stay at the Shangri lah or Discovery Shores but if you want to experience a unique beach holiday surrounded by fabulous staff on a stunning beach front then stay at Fridays! We look forward to returning again next year.

Stayed: July 2013, traveled with family

We loved Fridays! It was wonderful. I don't think we have ever stayed in a more unique place. Decorated in a traditional style, the rooms are comfortable and spacious and the sand is right at the front door. The service in this place is next to none. The beach side area is lovely, with a number of lounges and a full bar service all day. Be warned that if you order one cocktail at happy hour you will get two...and they are strong! The massage and beauty service is great, inexpensive, and is available until 9pm. I don't think I've ever seen a more beautiful and safe beach. The water feels like a heated pool, almost no waves and very safe for children. All of the staff at Fridays were great, but particularly AG who always went out of his way to help. The restaurant offers a good menu with a lot of variety, and there are a number of restaurants within walking distance along the beach. The Friday night buffet at Fridays is great value and delicious. The town is only about a 15 minute walk.Transfer to Fridays can be arranged easily from Caticlan airport as long as you arrive at a reasonable hour.

Room Tip: Rooms on the beach are the most convenient.

We stayed for a week at Fridays for a last minute holiday in search of some sun. We were very blessed with the weather and had beautiful sunny days with rain at night.

We booked the deluxe upper level rooms at the back thinking we would have a lovely view from the room but we were disappointed. The windows have covers on them and you can only see the view from the balcony. If we went again we would try and get a room closest to the beach.

The staff are fantastic at this hotel and have all worked there for a long time which is a good sign. JoJo especially was great. He has been there since the 90's and hasn't left Boracay since the 80's!

This spot is definitely the best on the beach. Quiet but only 15 mins walk from the restaurants and action. The food in Boracay isn't the best but we had really great meals at Dos Mestitos, Cyma and Aria.

If we went again, we wouldn't go in wet season. We were really lucky with the weather but if a typhoon came through, there would be nothing to do but stay indoors.

I traveled to Boracay with my family in Jan 2013, we were booked to stay at The Pearl of the Pacific hotel. After a plane, boat and car ride to our destination on arrival we found out the staff knew nothing about our booking. This booking was double checked before leaving Adelaide. The staff there told us our room was given away to one of the staff members guests And we have to stay in a down graded room for the first three nights and then be moved to our room for the next few nights. We weren't interested in being moved around so the hotel said they would move us to another hotel 'Fridays' wow were we impressed my family have travelled to Boracay before but never stayed at Fridays. Our room was amazing, the staff were lovely, a beach front hotel where we walked down the stairs from our room on to the beach, we had complimentary breakfast everyday of our stay and the breakfast was the best breakfast my family and I have ever had. We tried two of the three Fridays Buffet dinners and they were great food with amazing entertainment consisting of fire dancers, Tinikling dancers and musicians. It was at was a hotel and destination I would go back to in Amherst beat.

The upsides:
**quiet and less crowded part of beach
**Service is excellent
**Food and drinks excellent (happy hr. 2 for 1, 3-6pm)
**Ambiance is romantic island rustic paradise with sand outside your door and sound of the waves at your window
**Views are incredible, we stayed in cabin 1, the closest to the beach, the bar! (faucet to wash off sand at your feet available at each cabin entrance)

The downside:
**ask for hot water and will turn on for you, it is available
**since we stayed in cabin 1, a bit noisy due to staff working behind it in evenings
**pool would have been nice to use, but the pump was out of order and we didn't use it once.

Take advantage of hotel shuttle transportation to and from airport, so worth it due to a lot of transfers from Caticlan or Kalibo Airports.

Room Tip: Higher floors are quieter.

We have stayed for 6 nights at Friday's. Second time since 2005. Really a perfect beach resort with outstanding friendly staff. The atmosphere is perfect for a luxury vacation. Just a 15 minute beach walk to the busy part of the island. Very good food (Italian cook), quiet rooms with ocean view in native style. Swimming pool size is a little poor but the just enough. Not the cheapest resort, but definitely worth it!

Room Tip: take a (high) room close to the beach (premier)
