Wonderful staff, very nice and well-behaved people, I love them all.
May God bless and keep you all. Thank you all!!
Andre and Ryan always went out of their way to be
friendly to our son at meals. Calima was so wonderful
and our son just loved being with her. She took great
care of us and made our stay so nice, we will miss her!!
Kimberley at the Front Desk was very helpful and Harry
was excellent with cleaning the kiddies slide pool in the Morning
**I’ve meant to write a review for the past 2 summers, so here goes**
We have stayed at FDR the past 3 summers and we are so grateful that
this was our first place to stay in Jamaica! Our nanny, Tamara Brown,
is such a wonderful nanny and person! We have requested her each
year and in fact she has become our friend and we keep in touch with
her throughout the year. Our kids age 10s & 8d adore her, as do my
husband and I! The entire staff is very friendly and personable,
not to mention, so much fun to spend time with and learn about
their culture, the island and their lives. We keep in touch with many
of them throughout the year as well. We play dominoes, board games,
card games, pool games .. you name it! It’s like visiting your friends every
summer! We enjoy trying all of the local cuisine, but there are always other
items that you can choose from if you decide to do so. We LOVE the rooms
as well because you have a master bedroom which has a door so you can
have privacy, if you choose. We stay in Block 1 on the 2nd or 3rd floor and
it has beautiful views of the ocean with a wonderful breeze! There are no
elevators, so be prepared to walk up the stairs, but it’s not that far up for
what you wake up to every morning! The resort is always clean and well
tended to. It’s not “fancy” at all, but if you can look past that, you will be in
HEAVEN! It actually gives it some Jamaican charm. We prefer the smaller
resorts for the reason I mentioned above .. you actually get to spend time
with the nanny, staff and other guests that you would NOT get at larger resorts.
FDR has approx 77 rooms, one main pool, one small pool with a big waterslide
“Big Blue” and one bar! So you see your nanny with the kids, the staff and guests
all day each day… if you wish. Or you can go elsewhere and relax in a hammock
or the adult hot tub! We call FDR “Our Jamaica”!! We stayed at a large resort in
Jamaica right after FDR this summer. It’s NOT the same experience! I’ll leave
it at this “Once You Go to FDR .. You KNOW!” The Speer Family
All staff were great, Stacy and Annette were great at
the spa and Fruity the Scuba guy was really great.
We loved our nannies; Carmelina and Coretta were
both amazing with our kids. The nannies are the best
part of FDR!.
Our trip was perfect- hard to improve. Fabulous staff, very friendly
and helpful and eager to assist my children and parents in whatever
activities we could fit into our day. Great experience!!! we had a
wonderful vacation, many thanks
