Little to complain about from the easy and quick checkin where Gladys easily met our requests to the hugs from the staff who remembered us from last year. The food was varied and fresh... leg of lamb, turkey, shrimp cocktail, ham. Activities from the pool foam party, to the lobby karoke made us feel like teenagers again. The clientele were loyal long standing clients who made one feel very welcome. The infinity pool and hot tub is one if a kind in beach proximity. The staff are friendly and accommodating. Nothing to complain about except maybe the low toilets. Clean, quiet yet so much fun. Mobility challenged friendly.
Not enough places to eat after 10pm
The breakfast was very good. The other meals were what you would expect with a good variety with average food. Adult pool as well as all grounds were very neat and clean. Staff was very pleasant and attentive.
I was unable to charge any of my Apple devices. I had adapters but I forgot my converter. No USB ports in room or in any common areas. Was able to go to Apple store two blocks north to charge my devices. Room was clean and very functional. sealant around bath tub was a mess. Knob to pull up to activate the shower was missing. Toilet seat very lose. Teenagers would enter to the Adult pool which made it somewhat crowed.
The staff at Friendly is amazing. They go out of their way to ensure satisfaction.
Very minor. Our bathroom toilet didn’t flush well and the shower door was on backwards, making it difficult to get in and out with the water running.
stay with family
The staff is very friendly, helpful, thoughtful and try to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. There is always an activity going on and the staff are very active in the activities. It is a smaller resort so the staff all get to know who you are relativity quickly. It really feels like you are staying with a family. The food is good, nothing spectacular and it doesn't change much. We did not go to the spa so we can't say anything about that. The staff puts on much of the entertainment and they do quite well and because you know them personally it makes the shows seem infinitely better.
We paid by the night and it was the same price as a 4 star. Our room was big and clean. More than adequate but it is an older building in a hot humid climate so its pretty much what you would expect. It is also a smaller resort so groups can have a big influence on your stay. If you are expecting 4 or 5 star hotel rooms and food you may be disappointed. Honestly you have more fun here. If you are trying to stay away from kids it is challenging depending on groups staying.
