My boyfriend and I recently spent 7 nights at Frendz and had a great time! While not luxurious like many of the resorts you see littered along White Beach, the price and the friendliness of the staff more than make up for it. Frendz is about an easy 5-minute walk from the beach. We actually found that it was nicer to be away from the beach. The bungalows are surrounded by a well-kept garden area. There were flowers blooming outside our window. We stayed in a private room, no a/c. A/C isn't necessary unless you aren't used to the heat. The room was spacious and cutesy. We liked the colorful theme and all of the wood. Everything was clean and worked well.
The resort has a nice meeting area with a bar and food. The breakfast was especially nice. During our stay, most of the travelers seemed to be ex-pat English teachers (like ourselves) or backpacking around Asia. The resort seems to attract a friendly, young crowd which is great for meeting people while you're traveling.
The service is what really makes the place a great deal. The new owner is very generous and friendly - he saw us off at 6:30a.m. and even made us coffee/tea! All of the staff is welcoming and helpful, too.
And the price is great, considering much of everything on the island is overpriced.
Overall, a great experience. We would definitely recommend them to anyone planning a trip to Boracay!
