The Friendly Vallarta Beach Resort and Spa — Luxurious Resort in Hotel Zone

What do the Rooms Include?

The Friendly Vallarta offers guests every imaginable amenity in a convenient all-inclusive package. In addition to well-appointed guests rooms with private balconies and terraces, the room rate includes unlimited food, snacks, soft drinks, and alcoholic beverages at the resort's four restaurants, beachside snack shop, and two bars. Every night of the week, the resort offers a unique dining experience, from dinner theatre to casino night in the lobby bar. While alcoholic beverages are included in the all-inclusive package, there is a small surcharge for bottled wine. 

What Amenities are Included?

The hotel features a gorgeous azure indoor pool with ocean views and two flowing outdoor pools which include separate sections for adults, children, and sports activities. There is a large sandy beach with plenty of umbrellas and sun lounges. A portion of the beach is reserved for watersports such as kayaking, bodyboarding, and surfing. All non-motorized activities are free. There is a large, lighted tennis court and a well-equipped fitness facility. Organized activities include beachside yoga and fitness classes, and water aerobics. 

The luxurious spa offers a full menu of treatments such as massages, body wraps, mud scrubs, facials, waxing, and nail services. There are several large spa pools and a luxurious sauna. In-room massages and beachside spa treatments are also available. 

Families with young children appreciate the wide range of children's services and family activities at the Friendly Vallarta. There is a free kids club with supervised activities such as sand castle building, Spanish lessons, soccer, and board games for children from ages 5 through 12. Swimming lessons, dancing lessons, beach volleyball, water basketball, and on-site fishing round out the family-friendly activities. 

What are the Rates Like?

Superior rooms are in the $150 to $250 range, depending on when you travel. The Honeymoon room is a bit more, but still quite reasonable.

What’s the Bottom Line?

For travelers seeking a cheap Puerto Vallarta hotel, it's tough to beat the value of Friendly's all-inclusive package, especially if you're traveling with children. Couples and honeymooners might instead prefer the adults-only ambience of the Secrets Vallarta Bay Resort.
