Miserable staff as a whole, the younger staff were very lovely and friendly, but getting a drink at the bar or just a drink with breakfast seemed a real chore for some of the staff.
Jennifer at the concierge desk was fantastic, lots of advice and explained how everything worked. Reception desk staff were utterly useless. Have to pay extra for towels, safe key, and anything ok sounding on the restaurant menus was at an extra charge.
Wasn't too disappointed by the room in the end (still the worst of my holiday stays to date) as air con was ok and it had a Tele and bed was alright. But hotel is VERY VERY dated. Bar pool had chavy music and was visited by non resort members, looked a little grubby to be honest.
My advice, SAVE the extra money and visit Antigua in style. Am surprised Kuoni even have this hotel on their books.
Antigua as a place and the people are fantastic, but stay clear of Jolly Beach Hotel and Spa, you will be disappointed.
