“Stay here, don't look anywhere else”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

We found frendz brilliant. It's in a great handy location, only a short walk to the beach, dmall, laundry, supermarket etc. the staff were incredibly friendly and incredibly attentive, from Dennis at the beach who would organise drinks, make sure the beach umbrellas were just right to jeff behind the bar. We stayed in deluxe double bed private ensuite and we found this to be perfect for our five-night stay. Comfy bed, Air con, TV, at times we got wifi in our room. Linen gets changed after three days. The only downside was a noisy rooster in an adjoining property, but you can't do much about that. (And rooster crows throughout the day, not just at dawn!) oh and once we heard late night shenanigans through the walls. We did have a brownout during our stay, but it was all good as frendz has a back up generator. We did organise a banca tour through the resort. It was pretty much the same price we could get at the beach. We liked that we could eat and restaurants and get it charged to our room.
They do take security seriously as a guard mans the gate overnight. We did see a guy get pulled up for his behaviour.

We would highly recommend staying here. In fact if we were to return, it is where we would book again!

Room Tip: Def upgrade for the deluxe private rooms. Well worth the extra cash.

I stayed here in February 2014 and had an excellent time. I would recommend this to any backpackers and travelers who want a fun and friendly time. We were greeted at reception with a free drink, and the most helpful staff I have ever come across. Every week they host a dinner where you can chill and relax with other guests, a great chance to meet other travelers.
We only booked for 1 week at the resort, but liked it so much that we booked for a further week. Even when the hostel was fully booked they accommodated me with a bed.

The location is set 5 minutes from the busy White beach where there are free sun loungers for you to take in the sun. There is also a restaurant located right on the beach where you receive 10% off food orders.

A 5* hotel it is not, but if you want somewhere that is excellent value for money and where you will have so much fun with fellow travelers, this is the place!!

stayed for a week at frendsz resort. was abit hard to find at first as signage wasnt clear to get to the place. but once found you relise it is in a great location. minute walk to the beach. hostel staff friendly. put on a live band couple nights a week. rooms were comfy. for secruity of valuable items they took stuff and put it behind the counter. wasnt a huge fan of this. took the risk and kept things locked in room. was fine.

Room Tip: definetly ask for air conditioner room. the area it is in can get hot, very hot. well worth the coup...

Booked for 4 nights at Frendz and ended up spending a week.. Jeff and his staff were super friendly and knew you name after the first day.. Great atmosphere and great location. Wish I got an AC room but all in all I was very happy with the hostel. Really no complaints, if you want to meet new friends and have an amazing time this is the place for you!!

Great hostel if you want a rustic feel, top location, beach access, and a common area to meet people. You'll meet world travelers rather than local Filipinos, if your experience is anything like mine. It's a bit pricey for a hostel (approx $15-20), but the reason for that is the location and the beach access.

If you are looking for a good deal, great location, friendly staff, then Frendz Resort may be a good choice. But if you are not a fan of bugs, you might want to re-consider choosing Frendz.

We checked-in around mid-night, and immediately we saw a spider in the restroom and on the bed. One of the towel has a lot of blood on it!! I was so shocked!

We had no choice but to stay for the night. But the next day we immediately check-out Frendz and check-in another hotel. Though the price is doubled but definitely worth it and we get to have better quality of sleep and more energy to enjoy the beautiful beach.
