We have stayed in a few all inclusives and this was the best we have experienced. We love this place and can't wait to save up enough money to go back! The only difficulty we had with the resort was the reservation, but it was very minor. The website offered a discount, but we could not get it to show...

We were at FDR from January 16th-25th with my parents and my sister's family of 6 to celebrate my dad's retirement. My husband & I have stayed at multiple Sandals properties in Jamaica, St. Lucia & Antigua and 2 Beaches resorts in Jamaica with the kids. FDR is hands down the best resort if you are travelling with children! We...

The staff is incredible at FDR. We had such a wonderful stay and it was because of them. With three kids--all under four years old--my husband and I relaxed for the first time since their birth. Our nanny was fabulous and were even able to hire a second nanny for $25/day. Life jackets and floaties are available for kids all...

We have been going to FDR since my kids were 3 and 7 and my youngest is graduating this year. This is a second home for us. Love it because it is so relaxing. Kids and parents get a vacation at FDR. There is nothing like it and we travel the world and always come back year after year.

This is the first review I have ever written on Trip Advisor, and the reason I am doing so is because the management and employees at FDR deserve to know how amazing they are and how welcome they made us feel.
