First of all, Antigua is a beautiful island. It has one of the best beaches I have ever seem. It was perfect for our much needed break from the Big Apple! My two cousins and I stayed at Jolly Beach resort for 3 nights. Its very unfourtunate that this resort didn't meet our expectations. It was a beautiful resort. Rooms...

Jolly Beach Resort was in the middle range for us. The staff was very friendly and seemed to accommodate your needs when possible. Our room was a little small but clean. The bed was a little too firm for my taste. If traveling from other countries make sure you get an International calling card because we had no cell phone...

We changed rooms twice, because we had brown water coming out of the bathroom tap, had some issues with reception but escalated the issue we finally got it resolved and ended up with a much better room. The beach is the best one on the island because it is long, great for walking and a small hill to climb with...

We had a wonderful honeymoon at Jolly Beach! The food is fabulous, and the beach is out of this world!! It is an older hotel, but it is clean and comfortable. I wish that there was a fridge and water in the room though.

The hotel shows its age, but how long are you in your room anyway?? My grown daughter & I LOVED this place!!! The gorgeous pool is steps from the beach and I believe all rooms are oceanview! It is situated on the west coast so you have BEAUTIFUL sunsets each evening! The best part, however, is the happy, fun staff...

I was here 8 years ago and was just as pleased as I was the first time. The food was great. The beach is beautiful. The staff is very friendly. Loved the entertainment. The rooms are a bit dated but other than that it is hard to believe it is only a 3 star. I am already planning my 3rd...

Stayed @ Jolly Beach Resort from March 19-29. Somewhat knew what to expect because I had done extensive research & read hundreds of review prior to booking this trip. I'll keep it as brief & to the point as I can: CONS: -slow check in -rooms are dated (I didn't care but my husband did) -Wifi only in hotel lobby...

Please don't let first impressions ruin your trip - when we arrived at Jolly Beach, we were collectively disappointed at the outdated entry and reception area. We all thought it was going to be a long week, but we couldn't have been more wrong! When I first began planning our trip, I read a ton of reviews about this resort...
