Overall Jolly Beach was all that I expected & more

Best of all the service was second to known. I would go back just because of how well I was treated by the staff. The food and drinks to include free alcohol was worth the All inclusive price tag. The Beaches and pools were clean, and the bus was safe. For $1.50 US you can take the bus into ST John where there's shopping for souvenirs and carribean food available for purchase. For first time travelers, I would say it's not worth converting your money into there money because everywhere takes US over there and the citizens actually prefer US and can be used as a bargaining tool. The Dollar is worth 2.5 times more over there. So if your willing to understand the conversion you will save more than exchanging money at the airport or other places. On a slight downside there's a few things I would advise and wish were enhanced at Jolly Beach. Bring plenty of sunscreen and bug repellant. There are sand flys and annoying nats. The rooms were very clean and had nice views but are in need of upgrading. The beds and bathrooms are small but the showers had hot water so I can't really complain. The beds weren't all that comfortable but the pillows for some reason we're. (I still give the overall resort 4 stars). There's cable tv in the room with about 20 channels and (Important) wifi is only free in the lobby sitting area downstairs. You will be asked to pay $10 per day if you want it in your room. The cab ride is $24 US if you catch a cab from the airport one way. If your traveling with someone that has trouble walking, get wheelchair assitance once your in Antigua(Miami airport horrible) but in Antigua going to customs and baggage claim is so streamlined that you will be in and out in 10 to 15 mins and whoever is in your party can go with you. There several ways to book actives thru cheap Caribbean, Jolly Beach Resort, and some excursions you can get just going on to the beach. We went snorkeling for the first time and we were able to get all of these conch shells and starfish to take home that you see in the attached picture. There's a tour guide on the beach to the far left who provides sailing, snorkeling, lobster diving, and fishing for $60US dollars pp. His beach name is Twist, you will know if you ask someone on the beach who he is, he cleaned and cooked whatever you caught right there on the beach. I know this comment is long but it's all true, we just traveled Aug 2016.

Best purchase ever

First off cheap Caribbean is so easy to book and I have been using them for 4 years now and recommend them to each every one I know . The resort was like finding a gem in a hay stack. Even though it's basic and not updated. The service and the people were so friendly and accommodating , they made sure everything was just right. @ all times they checked if we were happy and all right. The staff at the restaurants and bars were top notch. There was just enough choices for the all inclusive meal plan offered. The drinks were not watered down and they made whatever you wanted. The beach and the location was absolutely breath taking . We had no problem with finding a spot on the beach , the views were spectacular . I have traveled to some amazing destinations but the beach at jolly was to die for. I'm not a pool person but they had plenty of pools for everyone , even a swim up pool bar . A great place for families and couples . I went to celebrate my 28th wedding anniversary and I was very happy. Overall a great find and so happy with our choice .

Very Disappointed

I was Happy on my arrival. They greeted us nicely. Then when we were brought up to our room we were disappointed. The room was small,the ac didn't work and the toilet didn't flush,the remotes to the tv didn't work even after being replaced. We called the front desk and they say they had no more rooms so we were stuck there.They do not have room service so you have to eat at the cafeteria.If you like coffee with milk your out of luck. They offer inside or out side dinning witch makes no difference because they have an infestation of birds and if you got up to get some thing they would pick at your plate. Lucky the beach was wonderful the pools were nice but the bar and the grill close at 5pm and the pools close at 6pm. Witch to me that's unheard off. Some of the staff were helpful but others were least desired to help. My wife got a cut on my forearm and they didn't even have a First aid kit but they have a nurse on staff that was nowhere to be found.The place can really use an upgrade including a safe that has tumblers not keys.Flat screen tv instead of 19 inch tube tv from the1990's. Maybe some furniture instead of a rock table and night stands coming out of the wall.There's more but to much to get into. I will not be visiting Jolly beach ever again.

Not what we expected of Antigua

Resort is going through renovations and for a hotel opened in 1979 it needs it. Bring a fan and wear loose fitting clothes, our A/C was set to 16 C and never cooled down. Some rooms we heard were renovated (we asked for a renovated one at check in but were told none were available). he ones that are not have screens not windows in the bathroom with a louvered wood door. Bathrooms were warm ! The front doors are louvered glass panes and the gap around the door was very noticeable. We also had the fan on high to circulate but had to climb on the bed to move the switch for downdraft. Rooms were cleaned by staff and they did a very nice job, no issues there. The hotel grounds need some work, specifically the pathway lighting, this is a safety issue which I brought to their attention before I left. Like I said if you look around the resort needs work. Restaurants are OK but some have supplemental charges for lobster or steak $15-$25 US. None have A/C ! The beach area is very nice with calm waters and sandy bottom. Beach needs raking as there are many pieces of plastic on the whole beach. Not staffs fault, when I saw what they were given to rake with a leaf rake I understood. The service staff were very nice as were the bartenders and cooks. With a lot of work this will be a very nice place to stay.

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.
