It as a great trip To anyone who is trying to decide on which resort to stay at, I would highly recommend FDR. Every staff member is cheerful and helpful. The resort is geared towards making your children stay the best it could be. I...More
I went with three other moms and our six children (4,3,2,1, 5M and 3M). Our nannies really made this the ultimate vacation for moms/parents and the older kids had so much fun while the younger ones were very well cared for. We spent so much...More
Since my husband and I had traveled quite a bit in the caribbean without kids along, I researched every possible option when deciding to take four children with us on this trip (14, 11, 7 and 10 months). I chose FDR after reading probably one...More
Overall this was a great trip. There was plenty for my 1 and 3 year olds to do...activities, pool and slide, beach... As everyone else has said, having a nanny was wonderful, and allowed my husband and I to relax by the pool, sit in...More
We planned a one week stay at FDR, myself, my husband and our 5 year old and 20 month old. Once we had stayed a few days, my husband convinced me we should stay another week ! It's like a luxurious camp with so many...More

The resort also offers excursions at times to Dunn's River Falls and the Blue Hole , but be sure to let them know you want to go so they book it...The blue hole is amazing. Depending on the ages of your kids, it's great for them too if they are older than I'd say 7..
We opted for a private tour through Chris Jamaica tours- highly recommend.
Absolutely take part in the bike and or walks and runs - Omercy, will give you some history of the local area and you will get a great feel for what Jamaica is really like.
We also went to the glistening waters about 45 mins away, and I would recommend skipping that...very crowded tour, overpriced, and underwhelming effect, though it does seem to be one of few places in the world you can see such a thing, so that's a bit cool....some of us got in the water which made it way better, but if you're not willing to get in the water and be ok with a murky bottom bay, I would absolutely skip it. Just watch the YouTube video and you've got the same experience.
And yes, you can leave the kids- just be prepared to pay the babysitting charge, which is VERY reasonable, if they watch the kids over lunch or after hours. Enjoy!
