Great hotel with friendly staff. Once we moved into the delightful suite #2 in Block 8, with french windows opening directly onto a little beach area we became very happy with the resort. The suite had one king bedroom and three twin beds arranged in two other rooms plus two bathrooms. It was a very comfortable size for our family...

WOW. As a mother of 7, you can only imagine the last time I truly had a vacation. We have done other large chains, Disney cruises(which we loved), adult only resorts and this is definitely on the top of my all time favorite list. When you first arrive... it may run through your head of what in the world? FDR...

I stayed at the resort with 2 kids, 4 and 8 months. Not only did I have a great time relaxing and enjoying the beach, but both kids had a wonderful time playing in the pool, doing crafts and playing games and of course the beach! The best part is having a personal nanny for the entire trip. So I...

I will try not to repeat other travelers but I probably will, here I go... There were no surprises, after reading many feedback from tripadvisor website everything pretty much was as expected. We did, however, have to change 1 nanny, because she was simply bad, she behaved like she was volunteering there rather than working. Don't use laundry, too expensive...

Short and sweet -- We stayed here for a week with our young daughters -- ages 2 and 4. What a terrific resort when traveling with young kids! Here's what's great about the resort: 1) NANNIES!!!!, 2) rooms are huge, 3) the scenery is beautiful, and 4) the kids are kept busy and happy with terrific activities just for them....

Just returned from a wonderful week with my wife and two young children (4, 1) at FDR. Thanks to the Trip Advisor reviews my expectations were in check and I was pleasantly surprised.

This was our 4th visit to FDR, and this time we extended our stay to 2 weeks. Talk about relaxation! NANNIES: The nannies are the lifeblood of FDR. Where else can you go and have your own vacation nanny from 9AM to 4:40PM (with a break for lunch)? It takes no time whatsoever for your kids to get to know...
