This was the best vacation I have ever went on. I enjoyed the service and the fact it was very clean and the small rooms were perfect for me. I was pleased with the food and drink supply provided as well.

Stayed at the Jolly Beach resort April2-9. Went knowing it was a 3*, and yes the property is dated, and rooms are very small, but it is very clean, the staff is amazing going above and beyond to make sure you enjoy you vacation. This was a great time to travel, only at 30% capacity, so empty beach chairs everywhere,... More
