Some of the staff was nice. The food was horrible we ate out although this place was All inclusive. No adult entertainment. Overall l would never recommend or stay here again. The transportation was very expensive 100 US dollars every time you wanted to leave the hotel. Your forced to leave daily because there’s nothing to do on the resort.l, Very boring there was more staff than guest.

The staff is great. It is definitely family friendly and works well for those with children under the age of 12 years old. The staff do a ton of activities with the kids to give parents some alone time. The amenities for adults are a bit limited. The spa and other features are an added cost. Be sure to bring cash for tips and travel. The transportation is best paid in cash if you plan on leaving the resort.

We just got back home after a week at FDR with our two year old, and we can't wait to go back! I agree with all the other reviews that say that the nanny makes the experience. We had Sharlene, who was warm, fun, funny, and just amazing. Our son loved her. You are able to request nannies in advance, so I highly recommend Sharlene if you can get her, but I also know that all of them are amazing. Everyone knows you and your child, you feel like you are truly part of the FDR family, and this is what sets this resort apart from all others. You do not get the mega resort feel, and so no marble and high end options, but I describe it as "vintage" Jamaica, and if you're able to get past that, you'll have a great time! You will actually enjoy it all without having to run around after your kids! The food is also good and the drinks are strong. Please also don't forget to to tip the nannies at the end - I heard they rely heavily on that! Can't wait to be back!

I have an infant and the baby gate for our room was broken and could not be fixed for our stay. Rate I was charged differed from what was posted on Expedia. Not a lot of food options especially for vegetarians/vegans where the island has a lot of options.
