A beautiful beach, older comfortable rooms all facing the pool or beach - wonderful staff - especially the animation team! Loved that not too crowded when we were there- lots of loungers round the pool- didn't have to save chairS! Drag your own on the beach and put it where you want- a great pl e

Jolly Beach is great, the water is gorgeous and the food and drinks are enjoyable. Yes it is 3 star, and the rooms could use some help. I heard horror stories about rooms from other people, but I guess I was given a so called fair room. The resort needs small dorm refrigs in all rooms, it is a joke...

I went for the beach and sea and for these 2 reasons very satisfied. Beach very big and sra beautiful. The main problem was the lack of sun umbrellas. They were always taken so wr had to share whdn possible. I don't see why I should have to pay extra $10.00 for one. Instead of giving free alcholic drinks all...

I was a little worried about staying after reading some of the reviews, but on balance the Jolly Beach had more pros than cons for us and we had a happy and relaxing time. We have just returned and stayed with our teenage children. Pros: Fabulous beach, plenty of outside, poolside and beach space so easy to find a spot...

If your looking for luxury this is not it, got to Curtain Bluff. This was our 2nd visit here, hence we liked it the first time so we came back! Do not look at the crappy reviews, these people are way too pretentious for this resort. The rooms are a bit old but they have everything one needs and the...

This resort was tired when we visited and in need of a major facelift. There is however great potential as it is a wonderful location and the location is perfect in that it stretches along a fantastic beach. The all inclusive nature makes it relatively economical, but this is not a 5-star resort by any stretch of the imagination. The...

Got a good deal on bookit.com. Not much has changed since my stay in 2010. Place still in need of an upgrade but its very clean and not buggy. Beach still as lovely as I remembered. Food good, not great. Staff nice. Main bar closes at midnight. Nearby marina has restaurants, shops. Supermarket a short walk.

My partner and I have been staying at this hotel every January for the past 13 years. We understand that this hotel may not suit all and does require attention in some areas but the staff and beach make up for its failings. Every year we see familiar faces so we are clearly not the only repeat guests! This hotel...

We had a great 10 days at Jolly Beach Resort, the weather was surperb. The Resort is a little tired, however the rooms were clean and tidy, suggest you upgrade to a bigger room with balcony and view of the ocean.The food was better than expected from an all inclusive holiday, however there were three other resturants on site which...
