We fell in love with the staff
and fee like family at FDR
June 22, 2012
This was my second visit to FDR and I loved it!
The staff is so personable and they really want
to take care of you. The food was even better this
time around. The chocolate cake and coconut macaroons
are out of this world! It’s definitely a great family
place, it feels very safe. I love the dinners on the
beach…just beautiful! The evening entertainment and
games around the pool are so much fun. It’s a smaller
resort, so it feels like you are just hanging out with
a bunch of friends the whole time. The Nanny’s are so great.
I was a little skeptical to leave my kids with strangers,
but after seeing how attentive the Nanny’s are, I wouldnt
think twice about leaving my kids with them. Can’t wait
to get back to FDR!!!

Our first trip to FDR, but certainly not our last!
Our daughter has a severe peanut and tree nut allergy
and this was our first experience traveling since the
diagnosis. Everyone on the staff was aware of her needs
from day one; the chefs even prepared some of the boxes
of mac n cheese and ravioli we brought with us. Our nanny,
Charlene, was amazing — not only did she take great care
of our 3 year old (and the craft activities are better than
the ones she has at daycare at home). she made sure we had
everything we needed and if we had any questions or issues,
she instantly took care of it. From our wonderful welcome
from Kimberly, to Marsha, Donnalee, Kerrian, Ryan and Andre
in the restaurants, to Shevoy and Shane behind the bar, to
Harry (thanks for the boat rides and great stories!) and Kyle
our lifeguard and Ken Alexander, the world’s best tennis
instructor (thanks, mon!) and Tomika, the energetic games
coordinator, you will be taken care of like you are visiting
old friends from the moment you walk into the resort.
Hope to see you all soon!

What can I say? Second time there, another
perfect trip! I’m not sure I can add anything
that I haven’t said before lol..the staff were
great, weather was perfect, food delicious!
I found it harder to leave this year than before.
There are a couple staff that we got attached to
& miss them dearly! It really is a perfect place
to take the kids. Staff members keep the kids
involved with activities, have dinner with them,
play games after dinner. Personally know your kids,
and greet you everytime they see you. You really do
make friends with everyone there. Everyone goes out
of their way to make your trip wonderful. The nannies
are a must have! We asked for Janice again. At this point
she feels like family! It’s just great. I would recommend
it to anyone with kids (of all ages).

We were at FDR on our 2nd trip May 17-25.
Had Tanya Austin again as our nanny and
the girls had a blast. She really knew how
to keep them engaged in the types of things
they liked doing. The place is the same as
2 years ago with a fee upgrades. Our 2 bdrm
suite looked like it had a pretty recent upgrade.
It was huge and spotless.The wifi is much better
than last time. We found a significant improvement
to the food. Still a small selection, but it wasn’t
repetitive and it was very very well prepared.
All staff were amazing. May is a very low season
and there were only about 6 families, but they kept
everything open and were very flexible in
accommodating whatever you felt like doing whenever
you wanted. That’s a big benefit of going at that
time. I guess the tides change from year to year,
but we found it much much easier to get to the large
public beach this time compared to 2 years ago.
Not the obstacle course it was 2 years ago.
A real hidden gem in the Caribbean for young families!
Conversation with my 4 yr old daughter on last day.
“are we going home now?”
“because it’s the end of our week, but we’ll come back”
“can we come back for longer next time?”
“uhh…like maybe 10 million days?”
“we’ll see..get a job first”.
