Stayed at FDR resorts from May 11-17, 2015. The plan was to stay 4 days at FDR and then go to another property in Ocho-Rios but we decided to stay at FDR for the entire vacation. It was simply amazing. Great food, attentive staff and beautiful surroundings. Just what we all needed. Awesome! Thanks to FDR and staff. Donna W

We spent four days at the Franklyn D Resort and we're already making plans to return when we left. The reason you come here is for the nanny and ours was great. Beverly greeted us with a smile and never stopped smiling even after long days of watching a 4 year old splash in the pool. In the few days... More

I'm two days back from FDR and I am grieving. I miss it so much! Trust me, I'm not the cheesy type, but the resort staff made it feel like we were staying with family. Everyone took the time to get to know us. From the owner, who was very welcoming, friendly and involved, to our fabulous nanny Beverly who... More

I do not really have anything new to say that hasn't been said on here already. I travel often (15-25 times a year) so my standards are quite high. The trip was simply sensational. I can't wait to come back. Some tips: #1 Reserve your place by the pool on the first day of your trip, people tend to grab... More

We stayed at FDR for a week in February with our two children, ages 7 and 9. Our son has disabilities and celiac disease and FDR assured us that they would be able to accommodate us. In addition, they provided us with a special rate (50% off) because of our son's special needs. Not only was the discount appreciated, it... More

As most others have said before, this place is an oasis if you are traveling with little ones (my boys are 23 months and almost 4). The airport experience was a bit of a nightmare (filling out four excessively long and complicated customs forms is ridiculous-- bring a black or blue pen and be prepared to fill out EVERYTHING!!) and...

We just returned from our first vacation as a family of three (my pregnant self, husband, and our 2.5 year old daughter) and I don't think I fully realized while there just how amazing FDR was! Now back home, I keep thinking of our time there and how truly wonderful it was - we will be going back for sure.... More

We just recently got back from our first stay at FDR and also our first trip to Jamaica. I'll have to say that I was a bit skeptical at first being that this is a unique resort so there is nothing to really compare it to. We have stayed in all all-inclusive numerous times in Mexico and other areas of... More
