Beach great, resort dated but food good

The resort is older and the rooms are dated. The food was high quality especially the three ala carte restaurants. Did not spend much time in the room as was on beach, assorted activities through day to participate in. Resort food was on par with some of the four star resorts but resort age brings rating down. Great value when get on sale as the beach and calm water is what one goes for.

Great hotel, good value for money

A great stay over New Year's Eve Fantastic location and great entertainment Worth every penny...but the food is really not up to standard, but for the amount you pay for all inclusive this is not surprising On a positive note jolly harbour a few minutes walk away has a couple of nice restaurants Worth a chance if you are considering this hotel

I loved it...

but it isn't for everyone. The beach is beautiful, the staff is wonderful, friendly and helpful for the most part. It is a 3 star for hotel for a reason...the daily buffet is small, unvaried, and just okay. I have been going to Jolly Beach for over 10 years...the food has improved some years, and fallen other years. This year I was pretty disappointed. I hope this matter gets attended to. The rooms are fine, without a lot of frills...who cares? You're on a beach...have fun.

Don't pack a steamer trunk...casual is fine everywhere except the Italian restaurant...and the closets aren't that big anyway.

Paradise

My wife and I stayed for 5 nights during a business / vacation trip. We were very pleased. The staff was fantastic and the beach was the best we have experienced. The rooms were adequate, nothing fancy but provided a clean bathroom and comfortable bed (air conditioning, ceiling fan, small tv, drawer space, closet - all good). We enjoyed the food there was a variety, and it was tasty. We missed out on eating at the Italian restaurant because it wasn't open the night we wanted to go. The one thing that could be better is providing more information about the hours of each of the hotels, but then again, we could have asked.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

Taxi's can be a bit expensive - plan your outings accordingly. The Wildcat circumnavigation tour of the island was worth the money - safe, great views, wonderful meal and drinks, snorkeling and swimming - and they pick you up right on the beach at the resort!

Did not like the room.

The location is ok. The rooms were not as polished as the advertisement. The beds were too small. I had to request wash clothes every day, something that should have been included. the shower curtain was too short thus water flowed onto the floor after every shower.

new years get away

Second time to jolly beach resort, knew what to and not to expect, we were pleased with our accomodations, new years festivities were very nice with great fireworks finish. Service was very good, all were friendly and helpful. a great value for the money. if you want to hang at the beach/pool and enjoy the sun and sand and cocktails and the best jerk chicken barbeque then this spot is tough to beat for the price. If you want high end then pay for it someplace else it is not 5 star but the beach and friendly people and clean accomodations are a good value. We would return again.

Great value, beautiful location, average rooms, no crowds in off season.

I read the reviews ahead of time and knew these would not be 5 star luxury accomodations, and my wife and I were very pleased. Every one of the staff was great and very friendly. It is a large resort of about 1000 rooms but during Sept there couldn't have been more than a couple hundred people, mostly from the UK. They had very cool shows with fire dancers and steel bands. Free sailing lessons and use of catamarans on-site, and a concierge to help with other off site adventures. Well worth it to stay here and save several hundred dollars to then use on other excursions or shopping (which you would probably spend anyway!). Food was plentiful but of average quality, not too surprising for a buffet, still better than paying for meals plus tip elsewhere.
