We arrived shortly after three pm, and had no issues with reception, we were offered juice and or water and the process went smoothly. Before we were even through registration our... More

My experience was more than what was expected. First, the ladies along with that young man at the front desk, they know you by name from you checked in. Friendly staff in all areas. My room was equipped with all essentials, ocean view balcony and superb room service. When I told my friends about my rooms and friendly service, they... More

We are going to have more kids just so we can keep coming back to FDR for years and years! Although I have seen first hand that couples without children will have a blast here, there is just something so special about seeing your kids building memories here. I have written reviews about this resort in the past. We just... More

We have a one year old little boy and we wanted a relaxing beach vacation. The words relaxing and one year old usually don't go together. I did a lot of research and looked at different parenting magazines and blogs and we decided to go with FDR. We stayed for 9 days - June 14-22, 2015, which is their actual... More

First you should know that before having our son, my husband and I always stayed at Couples - so when we were researching where to go with our 11 month old we knew we had to level set our expectations. After reading almost all the Trip Advisor reviews and information from other blogs and articles, FDR was exactly what we... More

After 10 years of marriage, my wife decided to surprise me with a surprise renewal of our wedding vows at the FDR Resort at Runaway Bay Jamaica. Everyone was more than welcoming and treated us like family from beginning and end. Additionally, which was more than my expectations is they offered a nanny service to watch my little ones which...

After visiting FDR for at least the fourth time I cannot say enough about the resort. I first went there with another 20+ friends to celebrate my 60th birthday. I must say it was the most memorable birthday I have ever had. The staff took care of my every need and desire. It is like going home to friends and... More

I spent a relaxing week at FDR in Jamaica a week ago...will return as soon as I can. The visit was all inclusive which was perfect. My accommodations were comfortable. The resort is not flashy, but it is on the ocean, has clean well tended rooms and grounds. FDR served a good variety of food, and the drinks were satisfying.... More

Spent a week at this wonderful family resort with my wife and 11 year old son. Can't say enough about what a great time we had. The resort was in a beautiful location in Runaway Bay and close to many of the places we wanted to visit such as Ohco Rios, Dunns River and other adventure tours. The food was... More
