Our Opinion
Great value and arguably Antigua's best beach is what you will find at the Jolly Beach Resort. This 3 star resort offers simple rooms, good food and a magnificent white sand beach. A good choice for families, couples and singles.

The only rule at Jolly Beach Resort is to have as much fun as possible. This hotel is perfect for singles, families and couples seeking a value-packed holiday. Located on a stunning kilometre-long stretch of beach on the sheltered West Coast, this action-oriented hotel offers many options for active vacationers and sunseekers alike.

Location: Directly on an amazing half mile stretch of white sand, Jolly Beach on a protected bay of clear, calm waters, just a 20 minute drive from the capital of St. John's and 30 minutes from the airport.

Wonderful Time at Jolly Beach!!

10 Wonderful days at Jolly beach resort.Thanks to great staff who make this resort so special. Blondell, Kesi and Ishawna at the concierge always helpful! Anne Marie on Entertainments side, The Beach Bonfire, Dancing and Fire eating as a highlight.The food on offer gave a good variety every night and it was great to have some themed evenings.The Room I had was basic but very clean and the shower was amazing, slept well, and it was always a pleasure to wake up looking towards the sea as all rooms appear to do.The location on the beach with the Pool close by made it easy to relax. There are plenty of opportunites to explore the island either on your own or on tours, Beach Vendors are polite, just treat them respectfully and they will look after you organising a trip or leave you alone if you prefer!I look forward to returning next year!!Andrew, Warwick

Exceptional staff

The extreme kindness from the staff is the star of this resort. Room was cozy. The birds that visited in the morning on the balcony were quite enchanting. Daily activities, water sports, evening entertainment, lots and lots of food - this is a great all inclusive resort. Yes, it requires daily maintenance - but, don't we all. We vacation in Antigua for the quite, calm, relaxing atmosphere. As the sea slowly rolls to the beach, so does our heart slowly roll from the stress and hectic pace of our lives back in the States.

  • Kay M :

We just arrived home after a fantastic 10 days in Antigua.the place is wonderful.Jolly beach is a very welcoming hotel. It could do with some money invested into it to get it back into the top position it should be in.the setting is amazing right on the beach.what made our stay great was the wonderful hard working staff.the entertainers are so friendly and remember everyone by name.Only two things let us down and that was the lack of choice at meal times.hardly any fresh fruit available at meal times and none during the day in the snack back.only snacks was the usual burgers chips and other fried items.we didn't realise ice cream was available until 3 days before we left it was only when someone over heard us talking was we told we had to ask for it and waiting staff bring it out.saying this we could not complain about breakfast it was always good.also not enough places to be able to get a drink for the size of resort.a cold drinks machine or small bar would of been nice in the outside seating area near reception.the other let down was evening entertainment,it was pretty much the same music every night by a different band/singer.entertainment staff put on a couple of really don't go to the Caribbean to play bingo,this is something done daily around the pool and some evenings.if the food was brought up to a better standard and choice this hotel would be amazing.

Jolly beach is a no frills affordable hotel in Antigua, If you want 5star this is not the place for you, If you want friendly service and a relaxing time give it a go. went in a party of 8 for a wedding with Virgin it was fantastic they treated us all very sure to take plenty of sun lotion, insect repelant in needed day &night but a small price to pay for a great holiday.

We had a great time could not fault anything, the food was great the staff fantastic. I would recommend the hotel.we had a ground floor room ( 2208 ) it was clean with great views but small, the pool was clean & quite, we was in the small pool & it was next to the beach which was fantastic for a nice walk with out any one trying too sell you anything.
