jolly beach resort? | Debbie's Caribbean Resort Reviews Forums

Has anyone been here in the last year, if so what can you tell me about the place.

I stayed at Jolly beach in August the beach is beautiful, the food no so great. The resort is nothing special.but i still had a great time, should have gone to see monserat. !!

2 years ago, we were originally booked at Jolly, but got an awesome last minute deal and switched to the Sandals instead. So one day, we took a taxi to Jolly and asked to look around (to see what we would have had). A very nice staff member took us on a complete tour of the whole resort! It was December, and COMPLETELY deserted. Which kind of gave it a creepy feel. However, it had a great main pool area with swim up bar. Seemed very clean. The beach was large (long). When booking a room, however, definately do an upgrade. The basic room was so extremely tiny, I couldn’t believe it. There was maybe 1 frt of floor space all around the bed and that was all!! I’m not kidding! I thought the Disco was itsy bitsy, too, but it was daytime and there was nothing going on, so not sure if it is a "happening" place at nighttime or not. There are great reviews on tripadvisor that I had read at teh time, and everyone seems to enjoy it. Also, I’ve been to many caribbean islands, and I still like Antigua the best. The people are all so nice and friendly! I think you will have a great time.

My wife and I are looking into Jolly Beach Resort in June. What is Antigua like in June? It sounds like the place for us, we are looking for nice beach, nice pool and fun atmosphere. Room is not important to us.
I went to the Jolly Beach last september. I usually love the quiet side to teh Caribbean but really enjoyed teh energy at the Jolly Beach. I thought the food was fine, we had wonderful weather, the antiguian people are absolutley wonderful they are full of joy and really plesent!!the rooms were basic but they were comfortable and tehy had the most gorgeous sea view.The entertainment was one of the best sets i’ve ever seen in the caribbean they really were professionals!!Lydias bar/resturant is WONDERFUL!!

I can’t wait to get back!!

Wow we need some updates on this forum for Antigua ; ) We leave for JBR on 1/23 and counting down those days with great anticipation. I know the reviews are a mixture of positive and negatives and find that is often the case even with top-notch resorts. Since I won’t be spending 24 hours in my room; all I need is a clean room and the usual basic amenities for sleeps. I heard the balconies or patios off the rooms are nice. All told we are vacationing in Antigua for the beaches, the sights, and yep the sound of waves crashing or gently rolling. And I heard in that regard, Jolly Beach is a 5 star. After my vacation, I’ll come on board and update for Antigua.

— but for your money, you must admit that it was worth it right?
