This was our family's third visit to FDR. It wasn't our best trip, but it was still a good one. A few things, like the weather (only was able to snorkel one day), local hotel guests being unfriendly (kids made fun of my white child and adults were unfriendly), and low occupancy rate (it's that time of year) were not...

We've literally just walked in the door from our third FDR vacation, this time for 8 days. It was a slow period for the resort, just after Spring Break but before Summer Vacation. We were one of 4 couples for most of our week and the only ones that had been before. As we fielded some questions, it led me...

We stayed 6 days here in June 2016 (yes, sorry this is LONG OVERDUE!) and it was THE MOST RELAXING VACATION we have ever had. My husband and I and our 3 boys (10, 7, and 2). We stayed in a 2 bedroom oceanview apartment which was SO COMFORTABLE. It was kept clean every day by our nanny. We had...

We travelled with 4 children, ages 5,8,9, and 11... we read lots of the reviews prior to deciding on FDR, and while we had high expectations, we were still VERY pleased and totally happy with our 10 days at this resort. The people are absolutely amazing, all of them...as everyone says, your nannies will be awesome, and ours, Alicia and...

We just returned from five delightful days at FDR, where we joined our daughter, her husband and children. This is a superb place for families with children and our grandson, who has significant special needs, did beautifully there. The resort staff are consistently warm and accommodating and the nannies took attentive care of our grandson. He was included in a...

My husband, 2 sons (ages 5 and 2) and I stayed at FDR for a week at the beginning of April 2017. It was a great week. All of the staff at FDR were friendly and helpful, especially our nanny, Garcia. Our boys are pretty shy, but she was amazing with them. She really paid attention to what strategies worked...

They say you can never go home again. That's not completely true. Going to back FDR is like going home. The staff is so welcoming, accommodating and downright awesome that you feel like you never left. Thanks again for letting us feel that way!! Courtney, Angela and Brittany

I wanted to start be saying what a great staff this place has people are very friendly helpful and always smiling. BUT. The resort is in very poor shape, everything looks old and dingy. Everything needs a paint job. There is a very foul smell present all the time. There is no central air conditioning and the one that's there...

Thank you for your review following your recent stay at FDR. Our records indicate that the guests arrived at FDR as unexpected guests who arrived here from another hotel. The guest approached a Bellhop from the other hotel and asked him to make a booking for them at FDR, because they wanted to go to the Resort and wanted to...

“A room with a view of the ocean is always much better and rooms further from the pool would be quieter.”
