Pros: Cleanliness, friendliness of staff, facilities and accessability of the beach
Cons: The on site shop could be stocked a little better,
Location: There are plenty of attractions if desired or just relaxing by the pool or beach.
Hotel was excellent, staff were friendly and could not do enough for you, the food was amazing and the hotel is situated on a beach which can only be described as paradise. We will be returning in the future.

excellent value resort

Built around 1980 the hotel is rather dated, but now 99 freshly decorated. Fabulous setting, huge pools, extremely friendly staff. Lively atmosphere around big pool and beach bars with entertainment and activities but quiet and peaceful by small pool and in lobby and courtyard. Plenty of sunbeds around both pools and on beach but not enough sun umbrellas or other shady areas. We have stayed in worse 4 star hotels in many countries but don't expect 5 star luxury. An excellent budget holiday in the Caribbean.

Beach is the best

As we arrived we were surprised to see how slow and quite rude the staff is. The room(we booked on superior king room) was clean and ok. The hotel looked run down and instead of 5 restaurants we found at the most 4 but not always open. In the first week we had for 4 days buffet open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, then it closed due to refurbishment and we had to go for breakfast , lunch into Lydia's on the far end of the resort. But that's not all. in addition to the buffet place there are 3 more restaurants, which you have to book (as otherwise they are fully booked), ha-ha if at any time more than 20 people are in there they are full. Anyway the opened only on some days.The Italian is by far the best, as the staff is very nice and helpful and the food is ok. When the buffet was open, there you did have quiet a good choice. The Indian did have only halve of the a la carte menu there, not even poppadoms, not during the 2 weeks we were there. Food otherwise was below average. Lydia's seafood restaurant was the worst! Very rude staff, bad comments regarding some nationalities, no grilled fish and you had to wait for your main dish approximate 45 min, as they were more busy chatting to each other, also you had to ask to get drinks or your food. We went there twice and both times it was the same. Very bad indeed. Regarding drinks: During the 2 weeks we tried on all bars to get banana daquiries, but there were no bananas available(on an Caribbean island). We went out into Jolly Harbor and other restaurants and paid for it. As we were AI, we spend another £1500 just for food and drinks, as the hotel did not meet any standard. We got told Jolly Beach Resort has got 3 stars, they are only from the beach which is definitely the best on the island. would have been better off to book room only, as we spend a lot money for food and drinks. Night entertainment as advertised did not happen either, so overall stay away from that hotel!!
