We had a great holiday . This was our 8th time here. Staff so helpful , friendly and welcoming...the resort does need a lot of paint and attention to detail in appearance but the beach and food are remarkable (especially the Seafood restaurant) Felt as if we had been away for weeks it was so relaxing.

The service is good, but the rooms need to be updated, a few extra amenities could be added to the standard room. The staff was very friendly and made my stay pleasant enough for the four nights I stayed.

Where to start.......from the moment we arrived at the resort, our 3rd stay and this time to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary and our daughters wedding, we were made to feel special!

We visited the jolly beach resort in May . Every review said it was a 3 star hotel in need of some T.L.C.it definitely was but it is still a wonderful hotel. Our two weeks were fantastic.

Good place, just outdated. Friendly staff and clean property. Rooms are dated but clean as well as the resort. Beach is by far the best part. Food was good at all the restaurants as well. A must is the Greek restaurant at the marina, awesome. Zip line was fun and jerk shack was a great filler during the day. Will... More

Once again a lovely relaxing stay. This was my eighth visit. We have been to other resorts on Antigua but have never found a better beach. Customer service from all departments is excellent. Breakfast buffet is very good with something for everybody and the chef cooks the best omelettes to order we've had anywhere. Try one! Lunch and dinner buffets... More

You haven’t found a better beach on Antigua because you’ve here – you’ve found it! Eight stays – we are truly honoured! Our chefs really enjoy what they do, which is an extremely large task. But time and time again our omelettes are singled out by guests as the best they’ve ever had. Maybe it the love they have for... More
