First visit to Jamaica, choose for kid-friendly facility and it was.

Hurricane Otto was the only...

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. Hand you kids to them, then go enjoy yourself thoroughly, without worry, kids will have more fun than you. I have sent many families here, all have been overjoyed.

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...

This resort is beautiful and all inclusive you almost don't have to leave unless you want to go on a tour. Does have a kids program that lets the adults go and relax, while the kids are involved in activities.

Our family vacation began with a warm greeting at the entrance gate of the FDR accompanied by competent verification of our reservations to ensure that we were legitimate patrons to the resort. There was no surprise there after that all the members of staff were as courteous and as pleasant as our first interaction at the front gate ,simply put...

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,...

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.
