foods good not a vast selection but well cooked,hi to Stenson one of the chefs always got the right shoes on!! try the coconut grill for lunch great jerk chicken.the Italian al a carte restaurant is superb,thanks guys for our anniversary meal so well looked after.barbeque night at lydias is fantastic good food tables on the beach steel band playing starry sky wow!!

We stayed here for 2 weeks from 14th June. We had paid to upgrade to a King superior room, which was lovely & spacious with a very comfortable bed. The one complaint about the room was it needed more lighting. On arrival there was a bottle of wine in the room as we were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary & my 50th birthday whilst there, which was a lovely touch. There was also some beautiful flowers in a vase & arranged on the bed & in the bathroom. Our room was always kept clean & once we discovered they would come & spray the room every evening for mosquitos, this was also done. The food at all the restaurants was also tasty & plentiful. our particular favourite was Lydias which was wonderful situated right by the beach. Yes there are parts of the resort which are looking slightly run down & could do with some work, but this was never a problem for us. My husband loved the swim up bar and there was a great selection of drinks, especially the cocktails! The bar staff were always happy to put the drinks in our own cups and the majority of them were friendly, especially Neil, Dwayne & Charlie. The resort was very quiet which suited us & we loved having so much space and never feeling rushed or crowded. There were only 8 umbrellas around the pool though, which were not enough. The beach is beautiful & we loved sitting & watching the sunsets. The evening of our wedding anniversary was spent in the Bocciolo restaurant and thanks to Gail, Bradley & the staff who made it such a special evening. We would def recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to go and have a wonderful time in beautiful surroundings with great staff. If anyone has any questions please just ask.

Dear Allie,

I’m so pleased to hear you had a wonderful time at Jolly Beach celebrating both your 20th wedding anniversary and 50th birthday!

I’m glad you enjoyed the wine and flowers in your room, as well as our food, swim up bar, and the staff who helped you have such a special celebration.

Many of our guests and fans on Facebook tell us that our beach is the most amazing beach they’ve ever seen, so I’m happy to hear you found it a great place to sit and enjoy Antigua’s sunsets. Speaking of which, the sunset you captured in the photo you’ve shared here is truly beautiful :)

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience, and also for your feedback about the pool umbrellas. We hope to see you again soon!

My husband and I arrived back last week, and will most certainly be going back. We arrived at about 4 in the afternoon,after spending 2 hours getting through immigration :( The lady on reception was very polite and the whole check in experience was very quick. On arrival at our room there was a bottle of champagne waiting for us...they had noticed we were celebrating a big birthday this year (40) From the moment we arrived until the minute we left we could not stop saying WOW!! The location of this hotel is amazing, from the white soft sand to the gorgeous blue sea to the great pools. The staff were absolutely amazing, nothing was too much trouble. I would especially like to say a massive thank-you to the barmen Neil and Charlie, they truly were amazing. We tried all the A La Carte restaurants and the Indian (Utsav) was our favorite, although they were all very nice. I can not say enough about this hotel, it really was amazing. Thank you to everyone at JBR!!!! we will definitely be back.

Room Tip: We stayed in 3322 which was a super saver room, which was small but enough for us (in a place like that who wants to stay in the room). If you are looking for more space then i would advise you upgrade to at least superior, as we saw some of the standard rooms and they wasn't much bigger than the super saver.

Dear Sharon,

After you spent 2 hours getting through immigration, I’m so pleased to hear that you had a quick and easy check-in at Jolly Beach so you were able to start enjoying our soft white sand as soon as possible :)

We hear from many guests about our “wow!” location, but it never gets old! I’m very happy to hear that you, too, enjoyed this aspect of your stay, as well as the a la carte restaurants and our amazing staff. I’ll be sure to pass your thanks on to Neil and Charlie in the bar.

I’m glad you had a wonderful 40th birthday celebration. We can’t wait to welcome you back!

A really friendly resort, amazing beach, great staff and entertainment. The food was consistently good in all restaurants. Good value for money, overall everywhere is looking a bit tired, but didn't detract from our holiday. The rooms are small, if you can upgrade to a superior it's well worth it. Would definitely recommend and will be returning ourselves.
