We just got back from jolly beach resort and spa. We travelled with two families and kids ages range 21 year old to 25. (1-10 to 1-17-27) The staff Was awesome. I took my son who has many food allergies which he never eats out and they cooked his meals for him everyday safely. They were so accommodating. We never...

The best part about staying at the Jolly Beach Resort is the 5 star beach. The 3 star resort itself is tired and in need of some renovations which we understand they have started to work on. For the most part the staff were 4 star+ and the activities staff were amazing! We stayed the week of January 8th, 2017....

A sprawling resort hotel right along the beach front at Jolly Beach. Two nice pools, plenty of beach and large gardens. Downside is the state of the place. The rooms are run-down and uncomfortable, bathroom in particular. Wi-Fi only available in the reception area. On the plus side, as an all in resort, it offers value for money. Bars are...

My husband and I do not typically like all- inclusives as we like to mingle with the locals, but we were so pleasantly surprised with the good food, great service and most spectacular beach on the island! Great Price for this all-inclusive. Our favorite restaraunt by far was the Indian. Make sure to take the local bus into town for...

This hotel is showing her age remember it is 3.5 stars so don't expect modern, get past your room it is just for sleeping anyways. The food was simple and plain with healthy options. Some of the staff should not be front of house and should consider career changes then as always there are bright stars to make up for...

If you're looking for a 5 star resort at 3 star prices, then you will be disappointed. However if you're looking for OK accommodations with a 5 star beach, then this might be for you. Half of the staff were very nice. Most of the food was pretty good. We only went to the buffet and the pool grill which...

We arrived at Jolly Beach Resort and Spa yesterday 1/14/17 after a long flight with the intention of staying for 4 nights. Upon our arrival we checked into the hotel and were met with a very unenthusiastic greeting, which kind of already set the mood for our stay but certainly was no deal breaker at this point. We got to...

We arrived after a long flight, we had read the reviews and were a little apprehensive.. On arrival we were greeted with a welcome rum punch and booked into our rooms, I will try to cover everything objectively and be assured this is an honest review and not from a nit picker who loves a moan. ROOMS: these were small...

We stayed here 15 years ago and I wanted to return to see what's changed - and the answer is 'not a lot' Love the beach Service is good - treat them right and they treat you right. Food is ok... breakfast and lunch at pool is pretty good, yes it gets a bit samey but don't all 'all inclusive...
