Everything what you will read about Jolly Beach Resort & Spa is more or less true. It has a great beach, the waiters are slow and ignorant, there is no free wi-fi in rooms, supersaver rooms are super tiny, food is good, fitness room is great, the location is perfect. All in all I'd say it is a good choice...

The best part about staying at the Jolly Beach Resort is the 5 star beach. The 3 star resort itself is tired and in need of some renovations which we understand they have started to work on. For the most part the staff were 4 star+ and the activities staff were amazing! We stayed the week of January 8th, 2017....

A sprawling resort hotel right along the beach front at Jolly Beach. Two nice pools, plenty of beach and large gardens. Downside is the state of the place. The rooms are run-down and uncomfortable, bathroom in particular. Wi-Fi only available in the reception area. On the plus side, as an all in resort, it offers value for money. Bars are...

Great Price for this all-inclusive. Our favorite restaraunt by far was the Indian. Make sure to take the local bus into town for...

This hotel is showing her age remember it is 3.5 stars so don't expect modern, get past your room it is just for sleeping anyways. The food was simple and plain with healthy options. Some of the staff should not be front of house and should consider career changes then as always there are bright stars to make up for...

If you're looking for a 5 star resort at 3 star prices, then you will be disappointed. However if you're looking for OK accommodations with a 5 star beach, then this might be for you. Half of the staff were very nice. Most of the food was pretty good. We only went to the buffet and the pool grill which...
