my wife and I have booked our 6th trip to Jolly Beach for March of 2008, which includes each of the past 4 years. I check these reviews now and again just to catch up on changes at the resort and have a difficult time with some of the reviews that are posted. Are we all not staying at the... More

We have just returned from Jolly Beach to the cold British weather!! I have to admit before we left I read some of the reviews about the resort and was very worried. I have therefore decided to write this review to put all the others in their place!! The resort was lovely. We landed in Antigua to be greeted by... More

I used this resort as part of my time share exchange. You have to pay an activity fee to usee any equipment or even to get a drink. That is contrary to how a Time share should work. The Hertz rental car gave me a defective car and then when returned with a side view mirror damaged they charged $600... More

We stayed here for the first week of our honey moon and found it to be a great family resort. The staff were friendly and provided good service. When I blew the fuse in the bathroom,(with the hairdryer) I told the cleaning lady who happened to be passing and the fuse and hair dryer where fixed by the time I... More

My husband and I stayed at the not so Jolly resort in Nov. 2007. Most of the reception staff were rude and acted like we were inconveniencing them anytime we needed anything. The rest of the staff was very pleasant with the exception of a select few bartenders. The restaurants were ok. Lydia's seafood restaurant was our favorite. Staff and... More

Stayed here for 5 days midJanuary. Weather was fab with almost constant sunshine and temperatures in the low 80s - heat without that 'ouch' factor that you can get in the Caribbean at other times of the year. Sea about 26c SST, very blue and great for swimming, although visibility about 8 inches,as other reviews have stated. No jellyfish, though.... More

After reading some of the reviews we were very worried about going to Jolly Beach Resort but we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. We went with Virgin Holidays, transfer was smooth, only a couple of people in front of us at check-in, no problems. We had booked a superior room, this was right away from the entertainment area and... More

A party of 8 of us went 26th October until 9th November. We had a good time. The hotel is a bit tired and requires upgrading, standard rooms are very basic, go for the superior rooms, did not see the super saver. Good pools and great beach, no hassle from the locals on the beach just be pleasant and say... More

We have just come back from the Jolly Beach Suites. We were a mixed family with ages ranging from 2 - 60 years. We stayed in the self catering suites which are adjoining the hotel, and we feel that we chose the right accommodation. The suites are huge, there are two massive bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen with every possible... More
