We had a wonderful vacation! Antiqua is so beautiful! We chose JBR mainly because of the beach and the price was right. We were not disappointed with our choice, despite reading a lot of scary reviews before the trip. The place is dated for sure and is not a 5 star resort but for us that isn't what's important. The...

I stayed at Jolly Beach in early May. This is a mid-level resort, priced at very reasonable prices. If you want luxury, then go somewhere else - if you are ok with a standard resort then this is your place! I stayed in a king superior room in the quiet section of the resort. It was perfect! Spacious and clean....

Antigua is truly a stunningly beautiful island. Turquoise waters, white beaches, beautiful weather and great friendly people. Jolly beach is a only a 30 minute trip from the airport and offers great value for money. We stayed in a superior room right on the beach, which was clean, roomy and very comfortable. The Choice and standard of food was very...

This was our second time at Jolly Beach and it is getting better each time. The food as last time, was generally good esp. the fish restaurant, Lydia's. Unless you have been to Antigua it is hard to explain just how beautiful Jolly Beach area is, and this hotel is right on the beach. Some of the cheaper rooms are...

While this hotel is not a 5 star resort, my family and I thought it was great. The hotel itself is a little run down( some of the paint is chipped and peeling, air conditioners don't work great, the grounds show some things other hotels typically hide such as some pipes etc. ) but it would really take a miserable...

This was an OK resort. The property is 40 acres and very clean. It’s just dated and you can tell it is old. I arrived on the island in the night around 10pm. It was raining and I had to lift my own luggage into the taxi which was ok by me. Taxi ride was approximately 30min and cost USD...

The redort is showing it's age but is well maintained. The food is good and the desserts are great. This is a 40 acre resort with mango, almond and breadfruit trees all around. Watching the mongoose play was fun as well. The drinks are typical and the staff friendly. Entertainment is average. The beach is long and large and the...

Beautiful setting! Room was basic. No frills. Staff was not very friendly overall. Very regimented on times to eat .... almost impossible to get reservations for restaurants. Buffet was nothing exciting. If you wanted n/a drinks for your room....you had to pay $2 @ gift shop per can.....or walk to the grocery store. Not what I'm used to for an...
