A really friendly resort, amazing beach, great staff and entertainment. The food was consistently good in all restaurants. Good value for money, overall everywhere is looking a bit tired, but didn't detract from our holiday. The rooms are small, if you can upgrade to a superior it's well worth it. Would definitely recommend and will be returning ourselves.

My family of four (2 adults & 2 teenage boys) recently stayed at the Jolly Beach Resort. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The beach was beautiful, large and clean. The large pool was also very nice. We didn't use the quiet pool, but it also looked nice. The grounds are pretty. The rooms are average, but are clean and comfortable and the AC worked well. The restaurants were pretty good but the buffet restaurant at dinner was a little disappointing but the breakfast there was good. The poolside grill was very convenient for lunch and snacks and the jerk chicken was very good. I would recommend this hotel.

Just came back from my honeymoon. JBR was fantastic. We were able to participate in different activities every day, do our own thing or nothing at all. Great food every meal - pants don't fit right now!! Love the pool and beach! Great service from all the staff especially Blondell, Kesi and Evelyn. They were attentive, extremely helpful and took very good care of my wife and I.
Thanks so much. Hope to be back again.

We have just stayed in Jolly Beach resort for a stop over. We read all the reviews before traveling and can honestly say we were not one bit disappointed.

It is a slice of paradise on a perfect beach, really clean white sand and beautiful ocean waters. The pools are good also.

We ate in the buffet as we had just flown in and you can all find something you like, good selection and good food hygiene. Good fast service.

The rooms are basic but omg what a view right on the beach and sunset (which is really beautiful). Bathrooms all clean and shower pressure and temp surprisingly good.

Bar cocktails are yummy with generous rum servings And the bar staff are great. Strawberry daiquiri good also. Local beer and wine also surprisingly good. Surprised pool bars didn't open til 10:30am though.

The whole resort is well maintained and really well planted with loads of Palms and hibiscus. Overall buildings are a little tired but clean and great value, as reflected in other reviews. What more can you ask from a 3 star Caribbean resort.

Looking forward to the return leg stopover in a week!

Room Tip: All standard rooms are beach front. You don't go here for the room, you go for the amazing beach and Caribbean lifestyle.

My husband and I went on a Virgin Package to Jolly Beach for half term week in May because it worked out the cheapest all inclusive on offer at the time. I had been there 10 years previously with my sister and had a good time. Despite the room not being the one expected (Virgin had promised an upgrade to superior but was only basic) we had a very nice time. The room although small was clean and clean towels every day. The visit to Lydias was fantastic and thoroughly recommended but the Indian Restaurant Ustav was terrible-not Indian at all and made my husband ill.After this we did not try the Italian as Hemispheres was very good and you could always find something you liked. The staff at the Guest Services were great always had a greeting and smile and ready to help.If you want a walk out of the resort Jolly Harbour is just out of the main entrance and readily sign posted. There is a supermarket where i recommend you buy a mosquito spray for the room as they are rife in the resort.we had taken prevention for our persons i.e.patches and spray as we had read this on your site before we left. Also The Crows Nest where you are assured of a warm welcome for entertainment and drinks. They have Banks which was not available at the hotel All in all a good hotel and we hope to return although I would upgrade the room.

Room Tip: Go for the upgrade
