I travelled to Jolly Harbour is mid-November for a weeklong getaway from the cold Canadian winter. Antigua tends to be a fairly expensive destination from Canada (vs. Cuba, Jamaica, Mexico etc. I went alone, but was one of the very few at this resort travelling solo. It surprised me a little. The general attitude of some staff and guests was...

We stayed at Jolly Beach after most of the reviews mentioned that it had a great beach. However, anyone thinking of staying here would need to recalibrate their expectations. The management of this resort need to get their act together; there are far too many things that fail at this level. Furthermore, the management have the audacity to place 5...

After some research, we booked this resort for our wedding. The deciding factors were based on affordability, wedding package, location and reviews. We had 30 guests accompany us on this trip, and it's safe to say that everyone truly enjoyed themselves. First off, there are many reviews on trip advisor that discredit this resort because it is dated and the...

I'm a New Yorker, and I can read people and the games they play real quick. For example: some employees are much nicer than others. You can tell when you are being treated like an annoying tourist and when you are being treated like a normal human being. Sharon (the receptionist upon arrival) told us she had no reservations for...

We booked into the hotel as part of my son's school cricket tour. The tour itself was a great success. Unfortunately my stay was not! On the first morning of our stay I planned to play tennis early (6.30 am) before the sun became too hot. I had a quick shower but on exiting the shower cubicle the tiled step...

Stayed in a junior suite (beach cottage) which I can't recommend enough. Own fridge, lounge and deck for sunbathing and a stroll in to the ocean when it gets too hot. I can believe the hotel rooms aren't as nice but I guess you choose where you upgrade. I went for the room vs the flight upgrade. For those complainers,...

We stayed at Jolly Beach in March. I like to read reviews that are NOT 10 pages long so I will try to make it short and to the point. ROOMS- The rooms are comfortable but a little out of date. I would suggest NOT getting the super saver room. We upgraded to the standard room and we were happy...

We went into the resort on a day pass to go to our close friends' wedding. Even though we arrived after lunch they wanted to charge us for a whole day. We had wanted to take a room overnight, so we wouldn't have to travel back to our resort in the north of the island after the wedding, and so...
