My three friends and I set out to spend the day at FDR, not quite knowing what to expect. We had an eight month old, a two and a half year old and a five year old with us. The lady at the front desk welcomed us all with open arms, that's when we knew we made the right choice. Overall the staff were extremely friendly, the children had an amazing time. We didn't use the nanny service however from my observation, they seemed great with other children. I liked the fact that there were activities fo... Read more

We visited FDR last year for Mother's Day and decided to go again this year. We were honestly worried we'd be a little bored as we've already explored the resort and been there before. I'm so glad we did! We had so much fun that we ended up extending our stay by three days! The owner, our nanny, and staff were amazing as always. Everyone treated us like family. If you have any requests, make it known, and they will try to provide for you. We visited the Bob Marley museum, Ocho Rios for shoppin... Read more

We booked a return trip to FDR almost as soon as our trip last year ended. One of the couples we met last year was returning with their son and we met new friends too. When you enter Jamaica you hear 'welcome home' from almost everyone you see and it sure felt like it as soon as we walked in the door. Our nanny Beverly was waiting for us and had prepared our room with a basket of Jamaican goodies and a fridge full of our favorite drinks. Within an hour of arriving we were in beach attire and...

FDR is not the best family hotel Jamaica has to offer, but it is reasonably priced. I have visited multiple times and had a good time each time. For family with kids, this hotel offers each family a "Girl Friday " which is basically your personal nanny for your stay. She caters to the children, giving parents alone time. The hotel always has planned activities through out the day that will appeal to all guests. The hotel is all inclusive. Meaning all meals and drinks are included in the price... Read more

It was better when the upstairs was an arcade/pool area. I'm not sure why they changed this. The nanny's are great. The only downside is the beach. Overall I'd recommend, but management needs to stop changing things for the worst.

My family and I spent 7 days at FDR. We had a great time and will we definitely go back. I have been to 5-star resorts and this is not a 5-star resort. It a family resort known for the vacation nannies that come included for each family and the nannies are fantastic! The rest of the staff is great and there are plenty of activities for everyone to enjoy. There is room for improvement around the food and décor. The nannies are CPR trained, attentive and hands-on, doing lots of activities with... Read more

Awesome ambiance in a more smaller environment where the staff serve with enthusiasm and willingness. I had an awesome time in 2012. I went there on a business trip and to unwind from all that I had an entire room with room service all to myself. I ate almost everything I could and when it was time to leave. I was just settling in. FDR is a suitable hotel for fun and relaxation. The next time I go there I want to spend an entire week.

Visited FDR with my husband and three year old son on the last week of April. After reading many reviews we went with low expectations in regards to the room, property and beach. To our surprise we loved all of them. Our son really enjoyed playing in the coves. We thoroughly enjoyed laying out by the spa and walking just a few feet to the beautiful big beach at the property next door. We loved our ocean view room and thought it was very adequate. One exception is the water pressure being extre... Read more

It was our anniversary and the first time going to a hotel as a family as our new addition is just 6 months old so we just spent one day and night. The property is small and clean and is heavily kids centered which is a ++ for parents. We never took advantage of the nanny/girl friday services, but it was evident by our observation of others that the service is a major draw for the other guests. The night show was great, we gathered the owner was making it special due to it being his 70th birthd... Read more

We just returned from our 6 day stay at the FDR and we had a great time. The important thing to note is that this is a place for parents who want to actually enjoy a family vacation. The vacation nanny is the key advantage that FDR has over the other resorts. With the abundance of other kids, the kid-focused activities, AND family assigned vacation nanny, my husband and I were actually able to enjoy a family vacation for once. We have 3 & 10 year old sons. The nanny arrived every day at 9am... Read more

I have traveled around the world and I have never felt compelled to write a review of the hotel, until now. We returned last night from 8 days at FDR and it was AMAZING. First, if you are a single person, or married without kids, this might not be the place for you, unless you can appreciate how geared this place is for kids and families. If you have to have things done on time, even on vacation, this might not be the place for you. If you want a Sandals-looking type place, this is not it. This ... Read more

We stayed at FDR for 5 days. It was the perfect length with a 2 and 5 year old. I have to say- you will never find another resort like FDR. It is not luxurious, it is not up to date- but it is fun, homey, comfortable, safe- everyone there is now our family. Everyone called us by name from the first day on- all 4 of us. Anything we needed they accommodated. Wanted to make sure we were having a good time. Nannies- these women are the hardest working people I have ever met. We ended up having 2 s... Read more

First, Let me say that this was our third family trip to Jamaica over the past 8 years. Jamaica is a wonderful getaway in itself and the kids love it. On our first trip, we stayed at FDR Pebbles in Trelawny. It was simply fantastic!! Our second trip was Breezes (The old Starfish) only because FDR Pebbles was now a nudist resort and I wouldn't take children there, otherwise if it was, it would still be Pebbles. The third trip, we stayed at the Franklin D. Resort and Spa (FDR) in Runaway Bay. When... Read more

This is our fourth trip to FDR and we will keep coming back. The staff is amazing and the nannies are always so good with our kids. Each year when it is time to leave our kids always ask when we are going to return. We say this is always the one place we can come with kids and feel like it is an actual vacation.

This is an older boutique resort with only 78 suites. It is privately owned and the owner is on the premises daily. The staff is wonderful, very helpful and friendly. There was plenty to eat and drink. Also snorkeling, glass-bottom boat rides. Lovely spa facilities. Lots of shady comfortable places to lounge and read.

Great service, a wonderful family oasis. Our nanny was amazing with her taking great care of the kids who loved her. Food was great. So many choices even for one of us being vegetarian. We had fun in a safe, happy and friendly place. Could use an update (a little dated, needs a coat of paint) but otherwise excellent.

We recently spent 6 days at FDR. We were celebrating my husband's upcoming 70th birthday and wanted to go to a special place with our kids and grandkids. After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, I decided to take a chance as I thought the nanny service sounded great for our grandkids ages 18 months, 3, 8 and 10. Well, we were NOT disappointed!

We travelled in May 2016 with a 2 year old and 4 month old, and it was an absolutely amazing vacation! The resort feels like a traditional Jamaican property, with lots of charm and an incredibly friendly staff, all of whom knew our names by the end of our stay. In May, the resort was close to empty which was nice for us. The absolute BEST part of this resort? The vacation nannies. As parents, you can actually have a time out while the nanny takes care of the kids. There were lots of activities a... Read more

If you have kids and have to take them with you on your vacation, but still want to get away, this is the place to go. Nannies are remarkable.
