While staying at the jolly beach resort we were offered the opportunity to dine free at this restaurant for dinner. However some items on the menu were attached with a cost.

We were not impressed with the food. There weren't many options that didn't have a surcharge. My husband and I ordered different fish entrees cooked different ways. But when our plates arrived, they were exactly the same thing. There are also stray cats all over the place. They don't bother you and they seem friendly , but they walk throughout... More

We enjoyed Lydia's food and atmosphere and ate there several times as part of our all inclusive package. We were happy to pay extra for steak and lobster tail. The food was delicious.

Party of the Jolly Beach Hotel and Spa. Make sure you book it. Nice bar and a good potion right on the beach.

The food was amazing. It was a great way to feel a part of the island by eating local dishes. The conch curry was absolutely amazing.

The food and service was excellent. Definitely try the vegetarian soup, it was excellent. Crab cakes are very good, but the dip is like ketchup. The snapper is excellent. Ricky the bartender was fantastic!
