My dive buddy and I traded his time share for a week at FDR. Glad we did. We knew from dive websites that we should not expect much. We gave it our best but there was nothing in the ocean that was alive, less alone worth diving off of the resort. That being said, we loved the resort. The 1... More

Lots of activity at our favorite family vacation spot this month. During the 2 awesome weeks we just spent at the resort, they were building and testing a miniature golf course near the main pool! But that is nothing compared to what I am about to tell you. There is a rumor going around.... If I could think of just... More

Its run and owned by Jamaicans and they have pretty good service relative to the rest of the island. There is only one restaurant and one "grill." The food is actually pretty decent considering. The place has no real beach, but you can visit the beach at the resort next door, which is excellent. The whole charm of this place... More

We just returned from a week long stay at FDR, and are already planning our next visit! Due to a delayed flight, we arrived about 2 hrs later than anticipated, bus was waiting for us at the airport to take us to the resort and the front desk was there to greet us before we even got off the bus....

We love this place, have been coming here for eight years now (started at Pebbles). The staff is just exceptional. I'm a travel agent and can go anywhere, offers appear daily in my inbox... but keep returning here because of the intimate vibe, personal service, roomy suites etc. Everyone has touched upon the awesomeness of the nannies, especially if you...

We just returned yesterday from our week long trip to FDR. This is the first review I've ever written even though we've travelled to 6 all inclusive resorts in the Caribbean now. This was such a great experience that it deserves at 5 star review- especially while things are fresh in my mind. We loved the resort. We stayed in... More

I had 4 amazing trips to FDR with my family of 5. The activities for children are out of this world and our nanny was always amazing....We had 2 different ones over 4 trips and we loved them both! We loved the fact that we could let the teens sleep in and we could enjoy water aerobics right outside our... More

I had read every single review on FDR before seeing for myself. I enjoyed reading them! I read some detailed reviews multiple times. I felt I was completely prepared. That I knew exactly what I was getting, the good and the bad. I "knew" to expect rooms that were nice, but somewhat dated, that the food would be just okay,... More

After four years of marriage and having 2 babies exactly one year apart, it was time for a break. This was our first getaway as a family of four. I looked high and low for a toddler friendly resort that will allow us to relax as well. I considered the Beaches resorts but there was still the issue of juggling... More

I have always been reticent to travel with children and our experiences with my now 4 year old have been fun, but exhausting. So when I gave birth 4 months ago to another child, I knew that there would be no way for us to have a vacation whatsoever unless we brought a third party to watch the kids, namely... More

Trishawana, Director of Sales at Franklyn D Resort & Spa, responded to this review

Thanks for such a detailed report following your recent stay with us at FDR. Your comments are constructive and will be of great help to the Hotel. We use powdered chlorine to supplement when there is a high usage of the pool; as was the case during your stay. This ensures that the pool is always chemically balanced and all... More
