I'd been looking forward to visiting FDR for over two years, when our daughter was born and the idea of having alone time with my husband in a relaxing environment, any environment, sounded like heaven. My husband and I were seasoned travelers before starting a family - Europe, Argentina, Asia, etc. We didn't stay in the most luxurious hotels, but... More

Excelent for parents with small children. The nannies were amazing! We have two little boys (3 year old and 8 months), so we hired an extra nanny. The resort is not very fancy but it is totally prepared for little children and babies, including the small private beach. The chef prepared special meals for my baby everyday! We chose a... More

Though back in freezing cold Boston we are still basking in the glow of our week long vacation at the FDR. This was our first vacation with our now 3.5 month old son and it was great. We went with my parents and my sister's family (kids = 5, 3, and 19 months). I was extremely ambivalent about traveling with... More

We loved this place. The nanny really makes the trip. Thanks, Claudette! But, the rest of the resort was really nice too. I'm not sure if it's the recent renovations, but everything was very well maintained. Especially our room. I'm pretty sure we had the best room in the place. First floor, oceanfront (#38, I think...). It's really a cove... More

In just a few days we will be returning to FDR for our annual family vacation, and I thought it was about time I wrote a review, as we have had so many happy times there. It is the ideal place for families with small children to relax, enjoy the beach and get a taste for the beautiful country and... More

I debated if I wanted to write a review about FDR as everything has pretty much being said about it by other reviewers, but decided to go ahead to add my vote of recommendation for this great resort. First let me set some context: I am reviewing this resort from the lens of a family vacation. I have a 7yr... More

It was our first time at FDR and choose it based on reviews. It a smaller resort and older than other places. However, the rooms were very big. The teenager had the bed in the front room and we had the closed off master. Did not use the Nanny but heard nothing but great things about it. It was very... More

A friend of mine recommended FDR because he and his family had stayed here a couple of years ago. However, because his wife is a licensed yoga instructor, their stay was free. I travel all over the world and typically stay in highly-rated, pricier places. Thus, when I saw that FDR had many positive reviews and was one of the... More

For starters, any other resort I have reviewed here loses at least 1 star based on what I experienced at FDR. It deserves a new star of its own, this place is amazing. First of all, if you are a couple who is not travelling with children, or are single, please don't consider this particular resort. If you are travelling... More

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
