I agree with most other reviews. It's not 5*, the food selection is not the same as a larger resort, stuff is a bit dated, etc, etc. However, in my opinion, all those issues become moot points if you are a parent of young children...More
We visited FDR in the last week of Dec 2010 on the recommendation of a relative. Did not research it well other than seeing that it's rated above 4 stars on tripadvisor.
- Excellent Nannies
- Hardworking staff (servers, musician, entertainment)
Let me just start of by saying that our nanny SANIQUE is truly amazing. She took excellent care of our daughter, and we felt very comfortable.
The resort needs a lot of updating as it is older, but the staff is in a league of...More
Our group of 12 included three generations with 4 children aged 2-4. Our goal was to have no schedule and no responsibilities, and be able to meet and greet each other and play games any time we wished. This was accomplished beyond my expectations. The...More
We had a great experience at FDR last year and decided to return. The second time was even better because we didn't have to spend time learning our way around and figuring out how things work ... we were able to quickly shift into "relax"...More

We mostly hang out, I would email and ask the Ent. Coordinator for adults to give you the general schedule. Not sure on who is doing their tours, again we chill or walk the beach next door at the Jewel. Drinks, you can buy and bring what you want but it is all inclusive, so we just go to the bar. They only stock beer and soft drinks, milk, etc . . . The local supermarket has a good booze and wine selection, and good prices on coffee.

8 yr old no issue - will have a blast. We are here now. 5th year, not 4th, my mistake. We know half the place. Second Nanny not needed for 13 yr old. They have teen activities and generally tailor to you needs, but also depend on how many kids his age are here. I believe they go off site. There are only 77 suites here and on 3 acres, so place is intimate, but you generally can make of it what you want. There is a reason we know half the place. We all come back.
