I can't rave enough about this resort. My family has now visited 5 times, and we never want to vacation anywhere else. Everyone has a great time. Kids, parents, grandparents, etc. The nannies and staff are extraordinary!

What everyone says about the people is true - all fantastic, friendly and helpful. We had to a replacement nanny midweek when the first was sick, but Jasmine was terrific. Even my 18 month old warmed to her, and he's not a fan of new people. She was a great helper with my 4 year old, and was willing to... More

Just came back from a trip to Jamaica and we had a blast!! We traveled to several places on the East side of the island and spent our last two days there at FDR Resort....WOW! The resort is so tranquil and beautiful. It was designed to cater to children and to allow parents to have a peaceful, relaxing vacation. Although... More

My family of 5 visited Jamaica our second time and second FDR resort (Pebbles is no longer FDR). This is a very special place to vacation. The Jamaican people are extremely helpful and friendly and staff are exceptionally so at this resort. Your vacation nanny (ours was Vivien this time, Sasharee last time - such sweet ladies) makes it her... More

We returned to FDR at the behest of Management and were pleasantly surprised by the reception we received. The room (the setup similar to a one bedroom apt complete with kitchen, dining area, living room, bedroom and verandah) was all for the same price of a single room at other all inclusive hotels. Needless to say the room and hotel... More

Fdr is simply the best!! Thats all you need to know. All inclusive. All your food, all your drinks, all your top shelf liquor, every ice cream cone, every half drunk kids slush drink, included. We have been going there for 10 years. This is the only place I have ever been with my young kids that I felt like... More

Two big questions come to mind after staying here for a week: 1) Why haven't other vacation destinations cashed in on this idea of offering a full-time nanny? and 2) If you have kids under the age of ~8, WHY HAVEN'T YOU COME YET? Hello, NANNY!!!!!!!!! THE SHORT VERSION: We were blown away by the nanny and the fact that... More

My family of four just returned from a week long stay at the Franklyn D Resort and Spa and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The resort is small but the grounds and view are beautiful. The beachfront area is also small and perfect for letting young children play on the beach. However, access to the Jewel resort beach next door is... More

My husband and I (40,39 yo) usually take a warm vacation every year without the kids. However, this year we decided to bring them and try FDR. As we pulled up to the resort we looked at each other and said "Where in the heck are we and what are we doing here?" We'll, we're thinking about going back! We... More

I'm a single mother of a wonderful two-year-old boy. After the brutal winter, I really wanted to get away for a few days to the sunshine. I wanted to take my son with me, but A) wasn't sure how he would like the idea of going on vacation, and B) knew that he wouldn't share his mother's enthusiasm for being... More
