We stayed at the Jolly for 1 night on American Airlines dime due to a mechanical issue with our plane. Thankfully the Jolly had space to put us up for the 1 night, and it was another night in the Caribbean for my wife and I. This resort HAS potential, if the owner of the property would do basic maintenance... More

Stayed at the jolly beach early June 2014 - this is low season so the resort was not full but this is a perfect time of year for us as we don't like crowds. We were checked in and bags carried to room within 10 minutes. All of the staff on the resort are extremely friendly and cannot do enough... More

The place is a bit scruffy in places but the staff and beach more than make up for it. The beach is stunning and the food was very good most of the time. Got busy at peak times but soon learnt to have another cocktail and eat later. Fish restaurant was the best.

I have been on Antigua many times, but I rate this the best. The staff at most of the hotels are good, If you are polite and pleasant, they are the same back. The room we had was 2216, which is a garden view, you can see the beautiful sea through the palm trees. Never had any problem with any... More

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 &... More

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.
