We stayed at this resort as part of our daughter's wedding celebrations. The complex is situated on a fabulous beach - they boast the best on the island, and this could well be true! Room to sea in seconds or minutes depending on where your room is. It also has two excellent pools. The staff are great - friendly and... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed at Jolly beach for two week and we had the most amazing time. The main pool with the entertainment set us up for most of the day for quite a few days, we were rarely bored. The staff were so friendly and by the end of our stay we were well known amongst the staff,... More

We stayed just outside jolly harbour resort, and found the complex a little tired, there are many empty shops, the casino is standing but not open, it's a shame as the area has a lot to offer. Lovely looking villas, great supermarket, two banks which are open 9-1 and a selection of lovely restaurants. The crows nest is a good... More

On arrival, must admit that although clean we were really disappointed with the room BUT in the morning we saw the most fabulous beach and explored the resort and we absolutely loved the place. The staff were the most loveliest people you wish to meet....even the beach sellers lol (great characters) they were all so... More

Booked four nights here after sailing up from St Lucia. Thank goodness I'd read the reviews here otherwise I would have been terribly disappointed. As it was forwarded was mentally forearmed! Hotel is incredibly old fashioned and out of date - rooms, dinning areas and pools. The staff really try and are helpful and the rooms were clean if nothing... More

We had a great time, the staff looked after our every need, foods where typical being in the islands, weather was good, rained everyday, but not for long. The rooms where clean and well kept. Would I stay there again? Yes I would, my wife loved it, the price was quite reasonable too

Returned from this resort just over a week ago and must say we had a good time, but you have to accept you get what you pay for. By the time you include your flights in the cost of our trip I don't think we were paying more than £40 each per night all inclusive. So for around £40 per... More

We just got back from a week at Jolly Beach and my wife and myself had a really good time. There are 3 specialty restaurants on the property, however they were only open on certain nights and hard to make a reservation. We rate the food as very good at all 3, our favorite was Hemispheres the Italian restaurant. The... More

NOT ALL-INCLUSIVE! They see you as a walking bag of money, all they have to do is get you there. It cost $12 for the safe in your room, $10 for a towel per person, no wifi, terrible service as well among many other things. The food is not good, generic and cheap. I didn't fly to the islands to... More
