After reading reviews on JBR before booking, I decided to book a king size superior room. So glad that I did, we were in room 222 in Hispaniola building, I had requested a upper floor room with an ocean view. All of the requests were met in full, along with a bottle of sparkling wine on ice....what a nice welcome....

We always book a 7 day vacation in February of every year to get away from the cold of New Jersey. I found this great deal on an all inclusive stay at Jolly Beach Resort in Antigua. Once I saw the West leeward facing location with small waves, a nice sandy beach, set in a semicircle beach of about 1...

As everyone mentions at this location, the beach really IS amazing!! We never went in the pool once. The food was ok, nothing special, usually luke warm at the buffet but no one got sick at all (which for someone with a sensitive stomach) I was elated about. The Italian restaurant was not worth the extra money...we got the "10...

Travelers beware! Unless you are truly looking for the bottom of the barrel resort DO NOT travel to Jolly Beach. This is a 1 star resort with a 2 star beach. There was very little to be "Jolly" about during our stay. The problems started immediately upon our arrival when we were told that the upgraded room we had reserved...

Stayed for 3 nights and it was good. I will start off with the beach, oh Jolly Beach is amazingly beautiful! The hotel rooms are kind of outdated. Not all rooms has WiFi available which I didn't like. The best thing I enjoyed from this Hotel was the nightly entertainment sessions. The pools were also nice, good family and friend...

I had originally been been very skeptic of wether or not to book this place but after reading ENDLESS reviews I figured for the bargain of a price I...

Now then, where do I start….. We arrived on Valentine’s day 2017, as we pulled up outside the resort my wife said that this place has a resemblance to an old British holiday camp. We checked in and got our key, they didn’t tell us where our room was situated so we just asked someone else. We eventually got to...

Have just got back from spending two weeks here and can say the place is a 3 star as others have said, however you can't give any less than 5 stars for the beach or staff. So will give a practical and helpful review with as many tips as possible. We were in room 232 Jamaica block, King size bed,...

A beautiful beach, older comfortable rooms all facing the pool or beach - wonderful staff - especially the animation team! Loved that not too crowded when we were there- lots of loungers round the pool- didn't have to save chairS! Drag your own on the beach and put it where you want- a great pl e

Jolly Beach is great, the water is gorgeous and the food and drinks are enjoyable. Yes it is 3 star, and the rooms could use some help. I heard horror stories about rooms from other people, but I guess I was given a so called fair room. The resort needs small dorm refrigs in all rooms, it is a joke...
