Look, Sandals in Negril was also outdated, room bigger, but still outdated. For that matter, we stayed at Dreams Nuevo vallarta, opened only 90 days and ceiling tiles were falling there! This hotel is clean. The people are friendly, with the exception of Janice, and I see others have nothing but good to say about her, so maybe I caught...

The resort it self is old, but very very clean. Our room was average with a view of the pool and Ocean. Our room was always spotless after a long day at the beach. On our trip we travelled the entire Island by land and sea and this was the best beach ever! Food is average as are the drinks,...

I will be very straight with you all about this hotel!!!!!!!! It is not a 5 star hotel so do not expect Sandals quality rooms but the treatment from the staff here is 5 star treatment-from May 2010 to December 2010 half the staff remembered my name and even what I ate for breakfast and drank at the bars. The...

Totally agree with MikeD002. The beach, sea, location, landscape are just perfect. Also watersports and swimming pool are good. Free internet wi-fi in the room and lobby is also a nice bonus. But the rooms are basic and the food was so poor that in the evening we went out for dinner. But the hotel is cheap, so can't really...

I travelled with my family and friends to Jolly Beach Resort to see my brother get married. We all had a great time at the resort. "The time there is dictated on how you want to make it" And I mean that you can do as much or as little as you want at Jolly Beach and Antigua. The local...

Great location - one of the best beaches on the island. The hotel is about 30 years old and is beginning to look it. We stayed in a standard room that was just about adequate but in no way luxurious. Don't even consider a super saver room that are very small. The grounds are well kept and I never saw...

We have just returned from our fourth holiday in Jolly Beach. Once again we had a fantastic time. Yes, the rooms are pretty basic but they are immaculately clean, and lets face it, how much time do you spend in your room when there is a marvelous beach and lovely grounds on the doorstep.
