Had a lovely weeks holiday here with my boyfriend. Gorgeous beach, food was good, unfortunately we were unable to try any of the other restaurants due to getting booked up so quick! Also wasn't going to pay a fee per head for the Italian. The room was quite small and the air con was pretty much non existent. But you... More

I booked this resort knowing I wasn't going to get luxury accomodations. I just returned July 22nd from a solo week stay. Room was clean and all I needed was a bed and bathroom so the budget room worked well for me. I had a second story balcony beach view which I loved waking up to that view. I didn't... More

This was a short business trip so I did not have time to explore the property. However, check-in was a lot longer than I am accustomed to because I was asked to write my personal details. That aside, the room was spacious and clean. The television channels were limited and reception was poor. There was no in-room information on local... More

Great location and the food is good but I was very surprise at the level of how outdated this resort is, everything in the room is made of concrete for example the shelves/table/nightstand, the bathrooms are very old, the shower curtain is short and the water runs all outside the shower, the rooms are uncomfortable, very small and unattractive, the...

What can i say...what a lovely relaxed place. The beach was amazing and the staff really helpful. Remember this resort is only a 3 star so we didn't expect the luxury but what we got was a friendly resort with a lot of charm. Drinks flowed from the bar and there was always food available. Our room was only a... More

We first went there 15+ yrs ago and it was lovely we have be there several times since. There's no doubt that the beach is unbeatable the views are wonderful and the bay is gorgeous. However the resort now looks very shabby and the beach was scattered with rusty loungers and driftwood a feeling of being unkempt. The service is... More

Having just returned from the Jolly Beach for the 3rd time, I can see improvements being made around the hotel. The room was clean and spacious and as always the staff were amazing - especially Neil and Zouda behind the bar...... The only negative thing was the hassle received from the taxi drivers when walking out of the hotel to... More

Well it was the 1st time I had been. My now fiancée had been about 10 years ago. The beauty of the resort is simply breathtaking. We was in room 3357. Every morning we woke up to a sight of beauty, like I hadn't woke up and was still dreaming. Tourquise sea, with big white sail boats in the distance,... More

Our room we booked was to be an oceanfront room, had to switch rooms 3 times before getting one that was decent enough to stay in. Previous rooms were not oceanfront and were in disrepair, I couldn't open the sliding door and the screen door was hanging at the top...my husband had to assist me whenever I wanted to go... More

Quick review - this resort is what it is. Antigua is a beautiful island and becoming more pricey than Barbados for all inclusive hotels. Very few entry level resorts,can only think of Jolly beach and the two Rex resorts. After these, the price goes up considerably. Baring in mind that I went with a friend rather than a loved one,...

Thank you for your recent visit. We are delighted you had a great time with us, though disappointed to hear your some aspects did not live up to your expectations.
