Are you traveling with children? I was just at Starfish and walked down to Pebbles to check it out, the beach was tiny and the resort was kind of quaint. I'm not knocking it since I just kind of toured around it but it seems very quiet, low key compared to the Starfish. My children thanked me very much for not booking there, it looked "boring" to them. You are next to the big bamboo craft village and also Time and Place restaraunt which is awesome.

The big sell for the resort is the nanny, which is why I ask about the children.

Was at FDR Pebbles in early May, and had a great time! Pebbles is smaller , quieter , and more "rustic" than the larger , fancier resorts, which was just what we wanted. You could be as involved and active or as relaxed and left alone as you wanted to be. People were GREAT, drinks were top notch and plentiful (try the "Purple Rain"). Food was probably the weak link for us, but others thought it was terrific. Grounds are GORGEOUS! Beach was just fine---well-maintained, sandy, shallow entry to water---most people used the pool anyway. The free scuba lesson/dive in our package was a highlight, as was nearby Luminous Lagoon(not free). Free trip into nearby Falmouth was a nice way to see "the real" Jamaica, but don't expect a leisurely shopping excursion! We didn't have trouble with mosquitoes--they fog the grounds daily, and you can request that your room be sprayed in the evening when you're at dinner. Hope you have a great time--we did!
