Just returned from the Jolly Beach Resort and Spa. The place needs some TLC. The beach is beautiful pools were nice but also need TLC. The buffets were ok. Breakfast you can probably find something you like, but the specialty restaurants were great.The Italian was my favorite but remember you have to dress nice to be able to eat there....

This resort is in a fabulous location on one of the best beaches we have ever visited. Fine white sand and turquoise sea all within a few metres of the resort. Pros: 1) Beach - great for swimming, and watersports. Probably one of the longest beaces on Antigua and great for long circular walks returning via the beach hose /...

Yes there are some signs of wear and tear.. such as the sun shades around the pool.. but that is nothing much to moan about.. the beach is brilliant, especially for an early morning walk.. you do get a little bothered by the odd beach seller.. one in particular who offers trips at a cheaper rate.. difficult to get rid...

This is my second time going to Jolly Beach, I wrote about this before and I feel that this gem is something that more people need to visit. It is steps away, literally steps away from the beach. The rooms are cozy and the staff ensure that you are safe no matter the time of day. I went for a...

Jolly Beach is a fun hotel, but you should not have your hopes up for some luxury resort. This is exactly what you are paying for. A friend and I stayed at Jolly Beach in late March. We stay close to the lobby area of the hotel. Our room was clean and spacious with a beautiful view of the sea....

Celebrated our anniversary trip for a week and Jolly exceeded our expectations. Our room had a great view of the ocean and mountains (room 4419) and was always clean. Our room had everything we needed. The beach was absolutely stunning. Beautiful sun sets. We like collecting shells from all our Caribbean vacations and Antigua has beautiful shells. I was afraid...

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....
