Just returned from a very chilled two weeks at The Jolly Beach Resort in Antigua. We did our homework and read all the Trip Advisor reviews and by doing so we managed our expectations. The first thing we did was to upgrade to the Queen rooms which has everything you need to have a comfortable stay. Jolly Beach Resort is... More

We were concerned having read the negative reviews, but we had a great holiday! The Jolly: Extremely welcoming and helpful staff. Extra special shout outs to Charmina in Reservations for helping us with our pre-trip issue, our Room Attendant Cavella, the Events Coordinators Elroy and Ann Marie, and Donald for taking us out on the hobie cat. Fantastic beach, great... More

I bet it was beautiful back in the day. We only spent a day there as we were on a cruise and got a day pass. Drinks, towels, and lunch are included. It has a beautiful beach and a couple pools. Lots of activities are always going on (water aerobics, etc.). I wish they had more umbrellas. Buffet lunch was... More

We have been home for a week from our week long girls vacation. We researched and read reviews and chose the Jolly Beach Resort for the beaches, pools, good food and great staff. After reading all of the reviews, good and bad, we knew exactly what to expect. We had standard rooms, (not updated ones) with 2 twin beds. The... More

We were part of wedding party in review by Devonlad80 and agree with everything he wrote. All locals very friendly - even rushed to help when I was stupid enough to fall and land in muddy puddle! Our room was a standard one and perfectly adequate- we only slept in it after all! Why would anyone want to spend time... More

We travelled as a party of 14 for our wedding at the resort. The group age varied from 18 to 65. The moment you arrive at jolly beach resort you are given a refreshing drink and welcomed into the lounge. When we checked in we were upgraded to a superior room in the hispaniola section of the resort. The room... More

My friend and I stayed at this resort in late March/early April. Arrived at the hotel and met with an ice cold drink in the lobby :) check in went smoothly. Our room was small but for the amount of time we stayed in it it didn't matter to us. The food was great, something for everyone. The beach is... More
