Best Anniversary Trip

Celebrated our anniversary trip for a week and Jolly exceeded our expectations. Our room had a great view of the ocean and mountains (room 4419) and was always clean. Our room had everything we needed. The beach was absolutely stunning. Beautiful sun sets. We like collecting shells from all our Caribbean vacations and Antigua has beautiful shells. I was afraid of not having an umbrella for shade because I burn so easily, but there were many umbrella spots. At times, we did have to save the best spots near the bar/pool at 6:30 in the morning. The ocean is calm with perfect temperature. Try the sailing lesson. The water activity guys were great. Sailing was very easy to do and fun. My husband and I felt comfortable to go sailing on our own and had a blast. I wish the resort had water skiing and a snorkel excursion, but they did not offer these. The other activities on the resort were a lot of fun. I would take a picture of the schedule with my phone so we always had it handy. Hiking at 5pm Friday is a must. Charm was our guide and he was amazing. We did the hike on our anniversary and it was very special. Charm, thank you for being so kind and fun. Bring your cameras- you get the most beautiful views from the hike. And Charm made sure we came down just in time for the most beautiful sun set. The good thing is you can hike this spot any time- it's all public. Ann Marie was superb at the daily activities. My husband had the best time playing football (American soccer). I enjoyed Bingo and Aqua Aerobics. Ann Marie always made us feel special. She was always keeping people laughing and smiling. Kesi at concierge was very helpful and nice. Everyone was very friendly to us. We became friends with so many of the resort staff- we are really going to miss them. Night life was fun- we enjoyed the fire show, music and we danced when they had the DJ. The bartenders were exceptional. They always made my husband special drinks. Antigua Kiss and Antigua Smile were great. The pools were awesome. We enjoyed the large pool with the swim up bar. The smaller pool was my favorite. Very relaxing. Tea time had delicious sandwiches, brownies, cookies, hummus, etc. We took advantage of tea time every day. Restaurants had great food. Lydia's was my favorite. Try curried okra with roti- amazing. Fish and chicken dishes were delicious. Hemisphere's always had a great selection. We booked a tour (Thanks Kesi) where we went hiking, cave exploring, and snorkeling. This excursion was fun and we got to see a lot of the island. I recommend booking only through the hotel. Some of the locals who offer jet ski, boating, etc on the beach were not friendly and I would not trust them. We walked to the Jolly Harbour (short walk outside the security gate) and went into local shops, grocery store and home goods store behind. Souvenirs- the resort shop has $2 mini bottles $9 Caribbean rum balls. The shops in Jolly Harbour all have different prices. We got a $4 shot glass (where on the beach they go for $5). Check in and check out was very easy and fast. Bring mosquito repellant. An absolute paradise. Thank you Jolly for making our 5 year wedding anniversary so special.

Vacation

My husband and I had a wonderful time at the Jolly Beach Resort. The food, cocktails, service, swimming pools and everything was superb! We enjoyed everything about our vacation in Antigua and would highly recommend the Jolly Beach Resort. This is our second time staying at the resort and we truly enjoyed making more memories!

We enjoyed our vacation.

We had read all the reviews, and most were true. You get what you pay for. We got a really good deal through Cheap Caribbean and what we payed, we did get our money's worth. Hotel was a little run down but clean. Owners should put some updates in the hotel. Rooms were good and clean. Food was average, but they do have a very good Italian restaurant and a good seafood one.Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Main pool needs some work but still good. The beach was the best. Great views and beautiful water. All in all we enjoyed our trip. I would recommend this resort if you are on a budget and not looking for all the frills, and want to see this beautiful island.

Hotel Description

Jolly Beach Resort and Spa All Inclusive: Fun-Filled Family Vacation Spot

Whether you're a family needing a break or a couple looking to heat up your romance, JJolly Beach Resort and Spa All Inclusive is your ticket to fun. Sitting on Antigua's beautiful western coast, on a mile-long, pearl-white beach, this 40-acre resort boasts 2 pools, 5 restaurants, 5 bars and endless activities, all at a great, all-inclusive rate.

The two freshwater pools are great, but the beach at Jolly Beach Resort offers an endless expanse of turquoise water just begging you to grab a kayak or Hobie Cat. Non-motorized watersports are featured in the all- inclusive rate, so you can play out in the water to your heart's content. For the land athlete, the resort also four tennis, a basketball court and even a cricket field, where you can show off your skills at the wicket.

Parents, you'll appreciate the activities the friendly staff prepares for your child at the Jolly Kidz Club. And your teenager will enjoy hanging out and having fun at the Jolly Teenz Club. For couples, we highly recommend the Palms Wellness Massage for Two at the Palms Wellness Center. This beach-side luxury is one of a complete list of spa services, like stone therapy and body wraps, which are sure to help you find your island Zen.

With 5 restaurants, you'll have plenty to choose from to fulfill your desire for tasty treats. For a lunch that's quick and delicious, wrap your towel around you and grab some jerk chicken at the poolside Coconut Grill. Eat up, because you'll need to replenish your energy for the lively nightlife at Jolly Beach Resort, including Calypso Night, when you can sit beside a beach bonfire and listen to the beat of steel drums, while island winds caress your face.
