We have been to FDR 5 times. I was the fitness instructor for the resort each time but also always treated as a guest with my husband and our kids ages 2-7 (first trip) up to ages 7-12 (last trip). We LOVED FDR, the staff, the dining, the attention to detail and the bar!! Every employee is looking to make your trip more enjoyable. We met families from across the USA who we still keep in contact with and travel with. It is a melting pot of professionals and several different countries are always represented on each trip. Our kids got so used to the grounds that we only had the (wonderful) nannies the first yr., then they were capable to roam freely (to a degree). Beach is coved in so the surf is not an issue. Staff will help your kids fish and build in the sand. I really like the kitchens in the rooms and the kids could eat breakfast without leaving the room. Each year we saw resort upgrades and improvements across the board. The overall feel is VERY relaxed and casual, our kind of trip!! I don't think our boys changed out of their bathing suits, dress code is not an issue (for adults either!!!). GREAT memories for ALL OF US!! We are headed back to Jamaica for Xmas 2012 but renting a house in Runaway Bay to see how it compares. I'm nervous that we should just return to FDR...stay tuned!!!!
