Spent a week at Jolly Beach (March 31- April 7) myself, my daughter , her husband and daughter, 2 1/2 and my grandson 8. We all had a wonderful time and can't wait to go back again. The beach was awesome, the pools lots of fun, the kids loved it. We had Standard Rooms with King-sized beds which was fine... More

Most of the reviews here are accurate. To sum up, my family had a great time and that great time was driven primarily by the great entertainment staff. By the end of Day one, they knew my kids' names and had made an effort to become their friends in ways that few other all inclusive resorts' staffs have. Anne Marie... More

We just returned from a week at JBR and had a great time. The rooms themselves are very old and need renovation, but everything else was very good for the money in my opinion. Beach great, food at the a la carte restuarants was surprisingly good, and just about everyone was very friendly. Rather than spend a whole review rehashing... More

My wife and I spent a week a JBR in mid March and had a great time! The beach was really the star of the show, powdery white sand and the bluest water we have ever seen. There were some beach vendors in front of the resort, all were friendly and not too bothersome. If you walked maybe 2 min... More

We bought this all inclusive trip on the spur of the moment. We were not planning another all inclusive vacation this year, but this one was greatly discounted and affordable. When you get to the airport, you will have to wait in line approximately 90 minutes before you can get to your shuttle. The ride time from airport to resort... More

My fiancé and I stayed in this resort in May 2011 so before you start reading my review, take it into consideration. We spend a week in that resort and paid for £800 for a week all inclusive with flights from London so what we got was indeed good value for money! The hotel beach is the best as far... More

I read all the bad reviews of this place. And after comparing it to 2 other places for more money decided to go here and save some money. Upon arrival everyone was very welcoming, including those at the front desk. They drove us to our room on the 3rd floor with a slight view of the ocean. The room was... More

My husband and I just got back from Jolly Beach Resort and Spa. We were there from April 2nd- April 6th. Let me start by saying that the Beach is absolutely gorgeous. The sunsets were spectacular. The staff was wonderful and very accommodating. The rooms were clean but small and quaint. The food was ok, not a very large selection... More

We travel extensively and have been to many other Caribbean islands so our perspective is comparative. The Jolly Beach Hotel is located on a beautiful beach in the Boland’s area of the island. The hotel is older but with very well maintained grounds and buildings. We upgraded to a Superior King room which was in a building adjacent to the... More
