Thought we'd try a different hotel this year - mistake ! Positives - mostly very friendly staff, comfortable bed, reasonably good food (although desserts disappointing). Not so positives - beach a bit scruffy, a couple of pestering beach traders, food choice a little limited, rooms tired (superior king room in Hispaniola block). This hotel could be fantastic but it needs... More

Being a world traveler, I would give the beach a 5 star, and the staff a 4 star. The hotel is a one (1) star along with the food. The rooms are small, but clean, however, they are in disrepair, with a poor window unit for AC. You have to pay extra to use the room safe (15 USD), 10... More

I do not usually do feedback but I am fed up with the needless moaning of others and thought a honest review might be helpful. One fellow guest was complaining that the standard did not meet that of a 5* he stayed at, pity he didn't go back there! This is a 3* hotel and not a bad one at... More

Ok so we have just come back from Jolly Beach having spent my 50th birthday out there and our friends wedding anniversary too and looked through some of the disappointing reviews and have to say there are some valid points made but you have to consider this is a 3 star resort and not a Sandals resort where you would...

I would like to start off by saying that this is my first ever review on TripAdvisor - I am officially a travel reviewer for a large bank inhouse magazine which we send to our clients. I will keep this as real as possible. This is the second time I have been to the Jolly Beach. The first time was... More

We have just returned from a lovely two week holiday at Jolly Beach. We found the majority of the staff to be kind, friendly and always happy to help many have been there for many years. Ok the décore and the rooms are a little dated but the beds were comfy and towels were clean. You don't spend much time... More

Breakfast was okay - good egg station, hated having my tea from a plastic cup every morning :-( main restaurant for dinner was rubbish,... More

Went for my friend's birthday The beach itself made the resort. It is not a luxury establishment, but it is an affordable all inclusive. Not a party spot, the guest were a bit older, but we still had fun. The food is okay. Drinks are okay. If you're not too picky, on a budget and just want to catch some... More
