I had such a good time at the Jolly Beach Resort! The beach itself was gorgeous and it was not crowded at all, which my friend and I appreciated. Some days we sat in the more quiet areas and other days we stayed right in front of the resort, which we liked because you could hear the music from the... More

Returned this past Sunday from a good week spending time travelling around Antigua when we were not relaxing in perfect 85 - 90 degree weather on the best beach on the island. First off those who complain on trip advisor are not seasoned travellers or ever stayed in 4,5+ resorts. Jolly Beach is a 3 star that offers service where... More

Rooms are small and breezy, the resort is located on the beach in Antigua I visited mainly for work but got a chance to experience some of the surrounding after our meeting. A lot of birds and frogs. The internet did not work in the rooms however the wifi worked in the public areas. Food was excellent and the staff... More

My husband and I traveled to Antigua to celebrate our 20th Anniversary. Originally, we had decided to stay at another hotel for a week, but then I stumbled across Jolly Beach and realized the affordability of the resort meant we could stay for 2 weeks....yes please!!! What a gorgeous beach this hotel sits on. We did a circumnavigation tour on... More

I visited Jolly Beach last week and I had the best time ever. This is by far the best beach on the island. Vendors will try and sell you stuff, but if you just nicely say "no thank you" they'll leave you alone, until the next day of course. The beach alone is worth staying here. There was an entertainment... More

I returned 4 days ago from JBR. On initial impression I was so disappointed having wanted to go here desperately for years and turning up (on my birthday) to find the place BADLY in need of some tlc. I figured I would 'go with it' as I wasn't going to be spending every minute at the resort and I did... More

you can always rely on jolly beach. The rooms & hotel in general require a freshers up & dragging into 21st century but it's undoubtedly located on the best beach in Antigua!! Staff very friendly, food & service good, exceptional value for money!! If you want 5* then the jolly beach is not for you but a fun, quiet, relaxing... More

The hotel is of basic standard but what makes this place is the staff. Each member of staff goes that extra mile, and will get you involved in the activities be it water aerobics or limbo dancing..... That's why I've been back and would do again

This is the best affordable hotel I have visited In The Caribbean. The reviews it gets, good and bad about the hotel fabric are pretty accurate but it is more than good enough for its rating. What sets this hotel out for me is the staff, the beach and the food and drink, it is amazing! Typical day, wander into... More
