After 7 years returning, we had an itch to try something different. My kids kept comparing everything on our vacation to FDR, and telling anyone who would listen why FDR was better and would not stop! From the room size (at FDR we had an apartment!), to freedom to walk around safely (at FDR I could go anywhere myself!), kid-centric... More

We just returned from our first visit to the FDR resort. This place is ideal for families with children 12 and under and also wonderful for extended families (i.e. grandparents) who want to spend time together, have old-school fun, and also enjoy "grown-up" time. We had an AMAZING time! We have 3 children (ages 7.5, 5 and 3) and have... More

We just returned from our second visit to FDR, and had an even better time than we did last year. This is a great place for families with young kids. The accommodations are clean, spacious and comfortable. The food is wonderful - way better than we we have experienced at other resorts, even Sandals. Our nanny, Tycia, is amazing and... More

My family and I just came back from a wonderful trip to the FDR resort. This was our 1st ever "official" family vacation. I have a 10 year old Stepson a 2 year old and a 1 year old. It is very hard for us to find a vacation spot where all are happy. We usually just end up going... More

This was our first time to this resort although we've been to several all-inclusives with the kids before, many of which have had great kids programs. We had a great trip. My wife says it’s one of the best we’ve had with the kids, that we will be going back, and that it will be two weeks next time. We... More

Maybe it is because our kids are getting older or the weather wasn't as great, but I don't think we would go back for a third trip. There were a few problems with the food and we found the owner to be apathetic and even rude or condescending at times. Felt like a like it or lump it attitude. We... More

This guest has a discerning taste in wines and she is not fond of our house wine from Argentina which is Intis. She is like family when she is here with us at FDR and all the staff loves her and her family but everyone knows she is very competitive. Frank also did not help when he told her she... More

This is a great place to go with little kids! I read a lot of reviews from TA and most are quite accurate. I went with my wife and my 2 kids (5 year old and 1 year old). One hour ride from the airport to the hotel. The locals at the airport are very nice and helpful and will... More

This is one resort you never get tired of returning to. Just got back from 3 weeks at FDR and wish we were still there. It is truly "coming home" when you see the FDR welcome sign. Everyone remembers your name and what you like. It is a real multi generational resort. There were so many families with 2 and... More

Just an incredible resort for families with younger children. Great nannies, tons of activities, caring and warm staff. Location isn't the best but is good enough and food is mediocre but not bad for an all inclusive. This year is our second year and while we generally stay at higher end places, we love it and recommend to everyone we... More

After having a baby, getting married, and then having a big wedding-- it was finally time for a honeymoon. But where to go? We couldn't think about leaving our 2 year old daughter for a week, but also wanted to have time alone. Bring mom? Uh... no.... Then I remembered something. Over 15 years ago, an acquaintance raved about her... More
