We have just returned from a blissful week at FDR. As a Family Travel Specialist I have been to many of the top family resorts. This however, was an experience unlike any other! My husband and I traveled with our three kids, ages 2, 4 and 6. We booked Club Mobay for the arrival and departure. I highly recommend this... More

We did the Club Mobay bundle for arrival. Worth $50 per adult and $30 for kids over 2 - maybe.... It was nice to have some one lead us through immigration and customs, and help with our baggage with a 3 & 2 year old in tow. They also found our transfer for us and took us to them after... More

First time I visited the Franklyn D Resort in Runaway Bay on a day pass years ago [maybe 4 yrs.] I was not impressed with anything much but I recently visited with some friends for the weekend and did not want to leave. What a beautiful little hidden gem! Small, intimate, beautiful setting you would think that you were in... More

We visited FDR in early August for a quick long weekend for a very busy family. We have a 3 yo daughter and 9 mo twin boys. The service was awesome from the time we pulled up. When the shuttle pulled up we were literally welcomed with open arms. The front desk lady immediatly grabbed one of the twins to... More

If you want personal service in a family environment - Franklyn d is for you. The resort is one of the few in Jamaica that offer a personal family assistant/nanny. this frees you up to do what you came there to do - have fun. The food and fun are included in the price so we had a great time... More

We visited the FDR resort in September, after most schools have started back. And we had the place to ourselves! Yes, the resort is marketed as a great 'family friendly resort'. And it really is. I imagine that's why a lot of their target market is elsewhere in September; the kids are all in school. it is advertised, as all... More

To give a fair and hopefully objective review, I first need to describe my family: a 2 year old daughter just like her mommy, a 4 year old boy just like daddy, my husband (city dweller, extremely cautious, picky eater, never left the US before, Jamaica was a culture shock for him, and he is very much used to and...

My family and I have just returned from a wonderful family holiday at Franklyn D resort Nd spa. The staff were incredibly helpful and greeted us all warmly. They helped my mother in law, who is partially disabled, with accessing all the facilities. Thankfully they also had a teen age coordinator, which many hotels do not have. This really helped...

Truth be told we ended up staying at this resort because all the other runaway bay resorts were fully booked that day. When We arrived at the entrance to the resort I actually felt like going home. I think the resort including the entrance, grounds and rooms needs an upgrade. That all said you can't put a price on great... More
