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

I know FDR already has more than enough 5 star reviews - these are well deserved. We stayed with my parents and 2 infants for Easter 2015. The nannies- Chevlene and Sherene - were amazing and wonderful with our 18 mo old and 3 mo old. The entire staff was very accomodating of us and friendly. There were lots of... More

We traveled to FDR May 7th-11th, 2015 with our 7 month old daughter. I was nervous flying with her for the first time and traveling overseas, but we had visited Jamaica as a couple several times before having children and I had read all of the positive reviews of FDR. Everything great that has been said regarding the nannies is... More

We've been twice to FDR and will go back. The experience is wonderful b/c we have two small children. The nanny really does make the trip worthwhile for parents of small kids, especially if you're like us and don't usually have a nanny and do most of the childcare yourself. There are kids activities throughout the day, like horseshoe crab... More

I unreservedly recommend FDR Runaway Bay to families in search of the ideal hotel. The Nanny service gives the parents time to connect and for a single parent this break gives them time to get a massage or get away on the scheduled glass bottom boat rides. FDR has a great grill for burger and pizza lovers etc. Buffets with... More
