REQUEST CHARLENE! She was fantastic with our 7month old and 3.5 year old. She went above and beyond for our family and had the most pleasant, upbeat demeanor of all the nannies we saw at the resort This is a perfect family vacation getaway spot for families with kids. I would say that kids under 12 would be the way...

This is the first review I have ever written on Trip Advisor, and the reason I am doing so is because the management and employees at FDR deserve to know how amazing they are and how welcome they made us feel. We stayed from Christmas to New Years 2016. This is not the half acre infinity pool marble and brass...

Thank you for your charming review of FDR. We are happy that you had an ecstatic time with us. I do apologize for the lengthy delay of your room upon arrival. It is wonderful that you had the opportunity to interact with other guests while the kids enjoyed the beach and other scheduled activities with their nanny. We look forward...

My family of four stayed here for a week over Christmas 2016. Overall we had a great time. the beach is beautiful and the vacation nannies are great when travelling with children. The food and drink were actually pretty good considering its all inclusive buffet food. My complaints are: #1 There "four restaurants" are each only open one or two...

We would like to thank you for your fair-minded feedback following your recent stay with us. The rain fell heavily for a few days throughout your stay, especially on New Year’s Eve Night. The wind must have blown the rain horizontally to cause the leaks on the love seat of the master bedroom and on the love seat in the...

We went for Thanksgiving week and although I came down with double pneumonia on day 2 and was in bed most of the week, my family really enjoyed it! Not modern by any means but beautiful lush landscape and unbelievably nice friendly atmosphere. 2 y/o grandson and 7 y/o granddaughter could not wait for our nanny, Carmaleena, to get there...

I chose FDR because the website stressed family, and also mentioned teen activities. The pictures didn't really represent the resort, but it has it's charm. The orientation was weird--the girl who took us around asked about when we wanted to meet our Nanny. My daughter is 16, and only on reflection did I realize that she should have said "hey,...

Thank you for your feedback following you recent stay with us. Your husband did not seem interested in having a nanny, so it would have been awkward to offer a nanny after he made it clear that his daughter is 16 years old. Our teen coordinator met with your family on 4 occasions to get your teenager involved in the...

We love this place. We have 4 kids, 2, 10, 11 and 13 yrs old. We all love it here. Hotel is small and we like it that way. Kids can run the place without worry. Celine, our vacation nanny, is the very best. Takes great care of our baby and keeps track of the older ones. We love the...

I loved our stay at the Franklyn D! If you have small kids (under age 12) this place is worth it. The Nanny makes it feel like an actual vacation. And no, do not kid yourself that you will just bring the grandparents and you will get a break that way. The grandparents want to relax and enjoy too! Plus...

The nanny provided us a rare opportunity for us to snorkel, kayak, swim and relax at the resort which is difficult for us to do since our youngest child has a physical disability. Our daughter had lots of attention from her nanny and other kids her age. She felt special that she had a "club" to go to with lots...

We chose Frankly D based on 2 things, first and foremost the nanny, and second were the positive reviews. Both did not disappoint! Like other reviews, I will agree this is not a mega-resort with marble floors and brass columns, but the nanny allowed mom & dad to actually enjoy our vacation! A couple details; there is 1 pool, which...
