Spent a very relaxing week at FDR with our 2 year old and his young cousins. Our first experience with all-inclusive resorts was generally quite positive, mainly because of its orientation towards children's needs and amenities. As frequently mentioned, the vacation nannies are particularly great. Ours (Tanya) was caring, energetic and patient -- pretty much a perfect sitter and play...

FDR is camp for the family. with exceptiopnal staff, very good amenities and very clean rooms, FDR has proven tom be the best family vacation we've had yet! We were used to the 5 star experience, beautiful rooms and great cuisine but my wife and i would always have to enjoy those meals at 5:30 with the kids and then...

This vacation was planned as a celebration for my wife's 40th birthday. When I originally called the travel agent I had every intention of staying at one of the Beaches resorts. Our travel was able to quickly talk me out of it by saying that it would be about 40% cheaper to stay at FDR. A resort I had never...

This was our third time at FDR and it was the best yet. The food has gotten much better and the service continues to impress. You truly feel like they cannot do enough for you. Our nanny Latasha is the best and we HIGHLY recommend her. Our children ask for her almost daily and they consider her part of our...

Having read up on all the reviews prior to arriving I was pretty sure what to expect. That said, FDR over delivered in almost every area. We were there for 5 days with our two year old and grandparents. We started with a bit of extended wait for the transfer service to the hotel which was a letdown. The bus...

We were at FDR during Thanksgiving week 2009. Our kids are 2 y.o. and 8 mos. old. We ended up hiring a second nanny (at $20/day -- very reasonable) so the 2 y.o. wouldn't have to be on the baby's nap schedule etc. The nannies (Olecia and Jasmine) were so sweet with the kids, and also very professional in addition...

We sincerely apologize to you and your family for any inconvenience experienced during your stay at our property. We do agree that there was some delay in the check-in process due to the fact that we had to verify with your tour provider about your package. After your tour provider confirmed by fax and telephone that you did not pay...

Our third trip to FDR, after a lay-off of four years, was like coming home again. Our kids, now 7 and 9, remembered where everything was and instantly bonded with our new nanny, Russhell. Occupancy was a little down, which gave this already cozy resort a very intimate feel. The staff, as always, was wonderful and accommodating. Thanks especially to...

I read most of the reviews here first and they were very helpful to me. I won't duplicate them too much, except to say that it's really the service and the "heart" in this place that made it stand out for me. Everyone is incredibly kind, warm and helpful. One of my 2.5-year-old twins loved it so much that every...
