3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Super saver room outdated. Had to upgrade room Food and service was good. Location good

The security at the hotel was horrible. They followed you around along with your guest. The rooms were small & uncomfortable. There is no furniture in the room. Seating was made of concrete. I left early & rebooked another hotel. They refused to refund the money for the remaining nights cause I booked online. Would not recommend this hotel to anyone. I didn't even get to enjoy the amenities cause the first 2 nights were horrible. Never experienced customer service like that before. Worst part of my trip. Too far from town.

Waiters/waitresses/bar tenders/activity staff/housekeeping staff welcoming. Variety of food at each meal, food was good, all the meals had plenty of options to choose from. If you want souvenirs bring cash, most sales are on the beach and its cash only. Yes, the place is a bit dated, but I wouldn't have been able to afford a 5 star hotel and wouldn't have had a vacation. Room was cleaned daily and was spotless. They were constantly cleaning and if there was any mess around it was from rude visitors of the hotel. I would definitely go back again.

The hotel is old and decrepit. Everything here is outdated and in need of major repairs.

My over all experience was good. Thote is not a new fac ility but it is well maintained. the staff is prifessional. the cost of transport is high. the biggest complaint is its distance from everythimg else

Nice place for the money. We enjoyed sailing the Hobies every day and thought the guys that run the sports shop were great. Food was average but the staff no matter where you went were extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were ok, but in badly need of updating. I was not there to stay in the room so my stay was very enjoyable. We were there the first week of May so it was pretty quiet and not crowded at all.

It was our third time and this time we brought 7 friends with us! All of them enjoyed being in this resort. The beach and sea are amazing! Staff was nice and pleasant, we never had any problems! Our standard room was not big, but everything worked. The only downside is cleaning. Cleaning ladies just made the bed every day and changed the towels. Floor was not mopped even one time during seven days. If your priority is beach and sea and if you like to spend less money, overlook some not important things, this resort is for you!!! We definitely will come again!!!

Drinks are very good and food is fresh, rooms are not very clean, our air conditioner was noisy. when we arrived there was no sope, no shampoo in he bathroom, no blankets at all.

Nice beach and huge pools to die for.Staff are very friendly but rooms are small old fashioned, not very comfy.Hotel facilities need to be upgraded along with WiFi.Food is ok with various options if you have all inclusive package.

Beach and pool was awesome. Hotel room was old but we didn't spend much time in it. Meals at buffet were just ok. Other restaurants were better but needed reservation the day before and we're not open every night

The Staff would do anything to help you. I would surely stay there again

The hotel was clean and the room was standard. the staff was amazing! The entertainment and the food was also very good. A nice place to stay.

Hotel itself was not the nicest. Rooms and facilities old and outdated. Food was average. Beach was beautiful. The fact I paid a affordable and lower rate than most is the only reason I would go back.

Jolly Beach is a huge resort on a fantastic beach. I asked several locals what their favorite beach was without telling them where I was staying. The most common response was Jolly Beach. The room we were in was small; no coffee maker, no refrigerator, no microwave, no dresser. But, the view from our 3 floor deck was outstanding! We were in the room only to sleep and shower, so we have no complaints. Rooms are worn, but clean. Staff varied - some friendly and some could care less. We found this very different from our stays in St. Lucia where everybody was genuinely friendly. I think one reason of our perceived lack of friendliness is just because of the size of the resort and huge number of employees. Drinks are weak, but the food was plentiful and we always found at least one main dish that was very good. Try to find Linden (just ask any beach vendor) if you want fresh lobster on the beach. Most people staying there agreed with us that the big draws to Jolly Beach Resort are the beach and the value for the price.

From check in to check out everything went very smooth. Just low your expectations and you will be happy.

The staff was excellent, the rooms sufficient, the food was horrible. I don't expect much, but this food. Are you kidding me? I was not able to enjoy a meal until we paid $60.00 at airport for 3 fish tacos and fish and chips. If you wanted appropriate time for meal service go to the buffet. If you have 2 hours to waste for sub-par food then make your reservations. Food in a timely manner, go to buffet, same lousy food but quicker.

Bathroom supplies such as towels were not given daily. Had to call to get them.

Outdated facilities the charge $10 USD per night for wifi, so as a result hotel patron congregate at the hotel lobby to access the only free wifi hotspot in the hotel. I guess you get what you pay for however the wifi charge is inexcusable the hotel staff are nice the food is ok selection is limited.

Regarding the lotion, I ended up having to leave it as it was too large to travel with. Waste of money when there should have been lotion there on the first day. Had to call for toilet paper and towels. Air conditioning could be better. We love the resort - this was our third time there and we will be back but some things do need to be corrected. We do highly recommend the hotel.

I wont say you get what you pay for because I've been cheaper places and have had better experiences ....upon arrival i was placed in a room to which had pipe issues so i was forced to move the second room i was placed in had pipe issues the day after so i was forced to move again it was a horrible experience especially when your on vacation thank god the staff was pleasing other wise i would have lost all my mind the hotel needs to be renovated i wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone without sharing my experience .....the choice is yours
