We have such a great time at Franklyn D Resort we came for our 5th time. We stayed 8 days in Mid Aug 2014. It was great to see all the friendly smiling faces of the staff! A special thank you to them as they do a great job from the time you arrive to the time you head home.... More

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

The Resort was undescribably PERFECT for our family! The people are truly compassionate, caring, nurturing and gracious. I never was surrounded by so many easygoing, happy people in my life! They are always happy. Our nanny, Tycia, was SO attentive with our 4 children, one of which has Autism. Tycia and I form ed a sister-like bond. The FDR is... More

After hearing about this hotel from a friend who had stayed about a year ago... and hearing they had personal nannies for your family, I was intrigued and have been reading Trip Advisor reviews and wanting to go ever since.. Finally, my family was lucky enough to come here for a short 3 nights this past week. What a perfect... More

Overall we cannot recommend this place enough for parents with young children. We traveled in mid-July and stayed for 8 days with 16 month old twins (first extended vaca in 2 years). We assumed we would mostly just be relocating our chaos to a nicer locale with a maybe few breaks here and there, but in the end could not... More

If you are a parent this is the resort for you!!! We stayed at the FDR resort during the week of July 14-23. I cannot express how much we enjoyed our vacation. We loved the nannies! Who doesn’t right? We had Shawn and Sashauna and they were fabulous. Our four kids 14, 12, 4, and 2 had the time of... More

We are about to book what I think is our 10th visit in 6 years. Once we found FDR, we knew there was nowhere else for our family of 5. My children love it, and my husband and I appreciate the quiet time we have knowing our children are well cared for. The hotel is not 5 star, but the... More

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.
