We have never been treated better. The food was excellent. Everyone greeted us with a smile and wanted to know how we were doing. Our nanny was fantastic. The resort has a real charm and look about it that makes it much more inviting than the newer "chain" resorts. We will be back next year.

Warning: This is a very long and thorough post! This was our first visit to FDR and we could not have been more pleased. Our little family has two adults and one infant and it was the perfect vacation experience for us.

This was my third visit to FDR and once again I was not disappointed. This was a trip with my sister and our children (mine and hers). While planning this vacation, I described the resort to her and tried my best to sell the nanny (since she's a single mom I figured she would appreciate the help). She adamantly told... More

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
