I was here 8 years ago and was just as pleased as I was the first time. The food was great. The beach is beautiful. The staff is very friendly. Loved the entertainment. The rooms are a bit dated but other than that it is hard to believe it is only a 3 star. I am already planning my 3rd...

My husband and I are on our way home back to Upstate New York. We had an absolutely wonderful time at the Jolly Beach Hotel and Resort. I will start with our arrival.

Stayed @ Jolly Beach Resort from March 19-29. Somewhat knew what to expect because I had done extensive research & read hundreds of review prior to booking this trip. I'll keep it as brief & to the point as I can: CONS: -slow check in -rooms are dated (I didn't care but my husband did) -Wifi only in hotel lobby...

Please don't let first impressions ruin your trip - when we arrived at Jolly Beach, we were collectively disappointed at the outdated entry and reception area. We all thought it was going to be a long week, but we couldn't have been more wrong! When I first began planning our trip, I read a ton of reviews about this resort...

This was our first holiday in Antigua and as I have been reading the reviews over recent weeks I decided to add my own which I hope will be of use to others. The Beach - I loved the beach. The sea is an iridescent turquoise colour and has a wooded headland at one end and a collection of rather...

First trip to Antigua which I hoped would be memorable for all of the right reasons. Unfortunately, it was not! The island and the people are lovely but the hotel was pretty awful. I had read a few reviews before we booked and they were mixed but with a 'positive' trend. The beach is fabulous and so you can't fault...

Just returned from a one week sat at JBR and was very pleased with the whole trip. This is an older resort located in a little piece of paradise. The beach is absolutely incredible.

We came to Antigua for the cricket, so did loads of others. The place was fully & double booked! Our upgraded apartment was not available, but the view from the room they gave us was more than acceptable. With so many staying at Jolly Beach that week, they should have had more staff!! Whilst we didn't mind queuing to be...
