We visited FDR last year for Mother's Day and decided to go again this year. We were honestly worried we'd be a little bored as we've already explored the resort and been there before. I'm so glad we did! We had so much fun that we ended up extending our stay by three days! The owner, our nanny, and staff... More

My three friends and I set out to spend the day at FDR, not quite knowing what to expect. We had an eight month old, a two and a half year old and a five year old with us. The lady at the front desk welcomed us all with open arms, that's when we knew we made the right choice.... More

This place was great. The prices are much better than the chain resorts and thus the property is not as "stellar" as you would get at one of those resorts, but for the price and nanny service, totally a great deal. It is a bit on the rustic/quaint side, but still perfect for it's purpose. The beach was not great,... More

I have been to FDR around 6 times now, and every single stay has been amazing. It's almost like a second home. The staff are wonderful and friendly, I have made good friendships with them over the years. There are so many kids activities, so children can be kept busy. The rooms are spacious, the pools are cooling for when... More

I just returned last week after spending 5 nights at FDR with my husband and our two children (6 and 8). Our kids had a complete blast. They LOVED FDR. We took them to Punta Cana last year and both kids agreed that FDR was "AWESOME". My husband and I are on the fence. There are so many wonderful things... More

We have been to FDR 5 times and love it there. My kids consider it a home away from home. It is a really unique approach to family friendly. With the nanny for each family, the kids can direct their own fun and activities and not be tied to a daycare/center. They can spend that time with their parent(s) also... More

This place know what it is and exactly who they're trying to reach. This resort is not just kid friendly, it's KID FOCUSED. We are a family of 5, with three kids ages 7 and under. Our kids thoroughly enjoyed being able to go to the grill and order what they wanted for themselves. They especially enjoyed the marshmallow sandwiches... More

My husband and I spent five wonderful nights at FDR with our daughter, son-in-law and four of our grandchildren. I first looked into the Franklyn D Resort when my own children were young, but for various reasons, it wasn't until this year that we vacationed at the resort. What intrigued me about FDR was the fact that the resort is... More

So overall would definitely come back and for the money you can't beat this place. That's my summary, here are the details. The Kids- First it's important to know about the kids we brought (ours) to understand why we loved this place so much. Out kids are 12 and 8. They are seasoned travelers and seasoned kids club goers. They... More

We just returned from a 5 night stay and are already planning our return! This was our first trip to FDR and we were a bit hesitant with the various reviews. We have been to Jamaica twice before and stayed in the Montego Bay area with much difficulty in accommodating our various kids in activities and food. At FDR, we... More
