If you're looking for a 5 star resort at 3 star prices, then you will be disappointed. However if you're looking for OK accommodations with a 5 star beach, then this might be for you. Half of the staff were very nice. Most of the food was pretty good. We only went to the buffet and the pool grill which...

We arrived after a long flight, we had read the reviews and were a little apprehensive.. On arrival we were greeted with a welcome rum punch and booked into our rooms, I will try to cover everything objectively and be assured this is an honest review and not from a nit picker who loves a moan. ROOMS: these were small...

My family and I booked 2 suites at this resort with the goal of having a fantastic time. The staff at jolly beach helped us achieve this goal. The customer service received from the reception desk to the cleaner assigned to our room was great. They made us feel welcomed and comfortable. The surroundings were always clean and the staff...

I stayed here on a work trip for one night and it was like going back in time. I don't normally stay in all inclusive resorts so maybe I'm just not used to it, but I found the atmosphere of this hotel really depressing. It looks like it hasn't been updated in years, the food hall is large and stark...

We found this resort to be sub-par. We have been on other luxury vacations so naturally, our expectations are slightly above normal. This is not a bad place at all, just not as upscale as we prefer when on vacation. It's a great place for those looking toe experience a beautiful beach vacation at a great rate! We found it...

I visited Antigua recently - 12/15 - 12/20 - and stayed at Jolly Beach. As usual, the accommodations and service were outstanding and the price was great as well. I have visited Antigua many times and stayed in more expensive resorts - such as St James Club. However, after staying at Jolly Beach a few years ago, it has become...

The beach is naturally gorgeous but it is surprising there are no free standing sun umbrellas to setup and there are not enough beach chairs on the beach. There are only a few wooden umbrellas. The towels often run out by midday. It rains so much end of December that you need shelter. The food is decent but fails to...
