How to Get There
Great beach, very good service from the staff. And very quiet location, compare with others with other parts of the beach, with fewer vendors. Was upgraded to a larger room. But unfortunately the AC was very loud and old so you could not have it during the night. The breakfast was a la carte and not buffet. The safety box could be removed from the cabinet and not screwed. The room keys were common keys with number and hotel name. If stolen, the thief could know the room and hotel. With felt very unsafe
Gorgeous sunset and one of the prettiest
Beach I’ve seen.
Rooms however are a tad worn out but if your spending most time out I think it’s fine. Staff at restaurant is a bit slow - they seem to be preoccupied by other things most of the time. Stayed there 3 nights - can’t complain much. Enjoyed my stay there. For the price and location (station 1), I think there’s still value in choosing fridays.
our first hotel in station 2 was nothing like it was advertised so we packed up and moved on into Friday’s.
I would recommend a short week island 🌴 holiday to Boracay but out of the 400+ hotels would only stay at less than a handful of them. The hotels are designed to accommodate a Korean holidaymaker not us aussies (we seen only 5 other Australian groups). I would only suggest to stay in station 3 white beach - Friday’s for a middle a budget. It’s right on the beach. You never have to wait for a beach lounger and is a distance from the main tourists centre of station 2 but is within walking distance. The rooms are What you expect for the price. The wifi is great.
If you stay at the more expensive hotels expect a huge bill without the satisfaction of the food or entertainment offered.
I would also suggest not to try make your own way or pay a separate company to take you from the airport to hotel. Ask the hotel to include it in your stay.
Young kids would love it here, it’s very safe.
Boracay isn’t known for its food, shopping or cocktails just its natural beach beauty. It’s a Caribbean in the front and Bali it the back holiday. You can simply relax on a beach lounger 🏝 with cocktails in a fresh coconut 🥥 at call, go for a swim in the beautiful ocean with the finest white sand you’ll ever walk on. Awesome pick for a quick last min vacay ✌️
Stayed here for our honeymoon in December for 9 nights. We originally upgraded to a superior beachview room but it was very small, hot, lots of mosquitos & the lighting was terrible so we moved & downgraded to the standard superior room which we preferred. The beach is this hotels best factor, I've never experienced sand like it - Its so soft, white & the clearest sea I've ever seen. The location is perfect for the sunsets. Breakfast was amazing, lots of choice both Western & Asian & very tasty. Staff were great, cleaned rooms daily & towel provided for the beach with service to your sunbed. Cocktail hour is fab & they taste so good! Would definately return, great hotel thankyou
We stayed at Friday's 10 nights with my husband and my kids over the Chinese New Year.
It was the first time for me to come back to Friday's where I used to go, 14 years ago, when I used to live in Manila! Of course, Boracay has changed a lot but Friday's still has the best location, the best beach view of the entire island: Friday's has something particular, looking like a kind of eco-lodge and is the only one like that on Boracay.
However, the facilities looked tired and more staff should be at the restaurant where we had to wait for ages for being served. Employees are really nice but you can see there is something wrong in the overall organisation of the resort.
To be honest, I do not know if I will get back to Friday's, mainly because I was disappointed by Boracay itself: very poor road system, issues with sewage, horrible garbage smell at Friday's, local people - including hotel staff! - living in poor conditions...
Something has to change to preserve the island: find your credo, go green, improve the quality, and you will get happy customers and staff .
