My stay was hassle free, the staff without exception were friendly, helpful and a delight. My room was close to first block views beyond to the amazing beach. the room (standard) was not large but was spotlessly clean and had everything you need, the king bed was huge and comfortable, enough hangers in the cupboard, and balcony with stunning views....

Staff wonderful. Rooms spotless. Food good with lots of choice. Yes in places the hotel needs a little TCL, but it's so minor it's not worth worrying about. Overall fabulous and great value for money, we will return.

My wife found a 'great deal' on the BA website at Christmas. 2 weeks at an all inclusive hotel in the Caribbean, flights included, at the Jolly Beach resort. It was such a fantastic deal we could not refuse so booked it without delay. 5 months later, at the beginning of May we packed and made our way to the... More

Back again for the second time. This hotel represents great value for what you pay. We stayed in a super saver room which was small and basic but hey you are on one of the best beaches in Antigua with watersports and SCUBA diving and who wants to spend any more time in their room then they have to! The... More

If you want to have a great time in the Caribbean and don't have or want to spend a lot, this resort is a great find. My recommendations are; ~Don't spend a lot upgrading the room, you won't be in them but to sleep and store your things. ~All inclusive is nice but expect to eat a lot of the... More

We went to jolly beach for my 22nd birthday and we were pretty happy with staff, rooms etc. We weren't happy about having birds flying and pooing all over the place in the food hall and the guy that goes around constantly hitting a stick to scare them away. I must say we were impressed with the quality of food... More

Have just returned from my third stay at Jolly Beach. Basic room, but clean on a British Airways sale deal, which was a fantastic price. Great beach, basic hotel with really nice staff. Food is good with plenty of choice. Beach bar-b-q at Lydias restaurant (part of the all inclusive) was really nice, as was the Italian restaurant. One quiet... More

We stayed there for Christmas and we loved it. The weather was perfect. The beach is beyond amazing and the water’s color is the most beautiful turquoise I’ve seen so far (and we have been places). The beauty is really overwhelming… At the time we arrived, the resort was almost empty so there was no need to reserve umbrellas and... More
