A surprise to have so much offered for the price. Lovely to have a beautiful beach and boats to go sailing or canoeing. Fine dining evenings very good, just book before you arrive to get a place with reception and check the dress code. Brilliant for a few days before or after a yachting holiday, travel off peak and chill... More

The first thing to remember is this is a 3 star resort... Despite all the negative reviews on here we went with an open mind to Jolly beach and are glad we did so. The welcome Rum Punch was a nice touch and the check in staff were friendly. First impressions speak volumes and when you first arrive and see... More

Although we read in the Antigua book and on the website that the island is noted for warm friendly people and a laid back CASUAL atmosphere, you better pack some long slacks. My husband was turned away from the restaurant because his pressed summer linen dress shorts and a white collared shirt did not meet their REQUESTED attire...not REQUIRED but... More

My sister & I stayed here for a week in July. This is the nicest beach we have seen so far. The water is so clear & calm - we bought rafts - so relaxing! It was the off season so the beach was pretty bare. No problem with getting a chair. We had a queen superior room. It was... More

A nice resort. The beach will/should be your focal point during your stay. The service is very good. The staff very much takes great effort to make your stay enjoyable. The rooms are average, the beds are decent, could be better. The all-inclusive features of the buffet provide a decent variety of foods. Eat at 2 of the 3 a'... More

A very nice resort, clean, friendly and with a fantastic beach. We got a kick start at the check in counter where they were ready with a rum punch for all of us upon arrival. We would love to come back sometime!

We visited in 2011 and decided to go back again this year. Not much had changed, still the best place to stay in Antigua!! The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. I love the range of food particularly Lydia's, Bocciolo's & the grill at lunch time is fab! The pools are exceptionally clean and the beach is just amazing!... More
