We had the pleasure of visiting FDR Resort form the 29th of December to the 7th of January. My wife and I have two young children and our vacation at FDR was the only trip we have been on since having kids that allowed us both great time with the children, and great time with each other. I would strongly...

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...

This place is ideal if you have babies and toddlers. We have a 9 month old and 3 year old and it was an awesome trip. The service is second to none and the care for our kids was phenomenal. Claudette and Janet were great nannies and we plan on returning next year. We stayed in a 2 bedroom beachfront...

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.

REQUEST CHARLENE! She was fantastic with our 7month old and 3.5 year old. She went above and beyond for our family and had the most pleasant, upbeat demeanor of all the nannies we saw at the resort This is a perfect family vacation getaway spot for families with kids. I would say that kids under 12 would be the way...

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. We stayed from Christmas to New Years 2016. This is not the half acre infinity pool marble and brass...

My family of four stayed here for a week over Christmas 2016. Overall we had a great time. the beach is beautiful and the vacation nannies are great when travelling with children. The food and drink were actually pretty good considering its all inclusive buffet food. My complaints are: #1 There "four restaurants" are each only open one or two...

We would like to thank you for your fair-minded feedback following your recent stay with us. The rain fell heavily for a few days throughout your stay, especially on New Year’s Eve Night. The wind must have blown the rain horizontally to cause the leaks on the love seat of the master bedroom and on the love seat in the...

We went for Thanksgiving week and although I came down with double pneumonia on day 2 and was in bed most of the week, my family really enjoyed it! Not modern by any means but beautiful lush landscape and unbelievably nice friendly atmosphere. 2 y/o grandson and 7 y/o granddaughter could not wait for our nanny, Carmaleena, to get there...

I chose FDR because the website stressed family, and also mentioned teen activities. The pictures didn't really represent the resort, but it has it's charm. The orientation was weird--the girl who took us around asked about when we wanted to meet our Nanny. My daughter is 16, and only on reflection did I realize that she should have said "hey,...

Thank you for your feedback following you recent stay with us. Your husband did not seem interested in having a nanny, so it would have been awkward to offer a nanny after he made it clear that his daughter is 16 years old. Our teen coordinator met with your family on 4 occasions to get your teenager involved in the...

We love this place. We have 4 kids, 2, 10, 11 and 13 yrs old. We all love it here. Hotel is small and we like it that way. Kids can run the place without worry. Celine, our vacation nanny, is the very best. Takes great care of our baby and keeps track of the older ones. We love the...
