Jolly Beach is an all inclusive resort and spa claiming to be one of the best beach in Antigua. Offering a choice of five restaurants and bars with a culinary range from Caribbean to Italian and the drinks are of course all included in the price. The resort has two pools, one in the centre of the bustling activities at the hotel and one set away for peace and quiet.
Sitting on a white sand beach the Jolly Beach is a more typical holiday resort than some on Antigua. Surrounded by palm trees the hotel offers six different categories of accommodation from the supersaver room to a beach front cottage with wooden terrace and flat screen televisions. The standard rooms are typical of hotel rooms anywhere, whilst the supersaver rooms are quoted as being similar to a cruise ship cabin.
The activities programme at Jolly Beach is a full one. In fact the hotel itself claims that "the fun never stops". Jolly Beach is a child friendly resort and as such has a real range of activities to choose from. There are two children's clubs, one for three to twelve year olds and one for the older children to the age of sixteen so that the children can be entertained whilst you lay back on the beach and sample the Caribbean sunshine.
There is snorkelling and kayaking on offer and the experienced staff will show you the ropes of sailing and windsurfing. As well as watersports the activities for daytime include tennis, beach soccer and volleyball, Caribbean dance lessons, aerobics and even cricket. The hotel also offers a full range of night time activities including a beach bonfire, karaoke, a Caribbean night, discos and even a Mr Jolly Beach competition. A family activity programme means that there are things the kids can do with mum and dad. Everything from snorkelling and sailing lessons to arts and crafts can be carried out as a family group.
Dining is no problem here as you have five restaurants to chose from with a wide range of dishes on offer. Some of the more lavish dishes such as Lobster are not included on the all inclusive menu and are subject to a surcharge as are the non-local or premium wines and liquors. Lydia's is an open air beachside restaurant and has a real island feel. It is open until ten pm but dinner reservations are required. Utsav is an Indian restaurant that has a dress code of smart casual, so be prepared to have more than just the t-shirts and shorts in your suitcase. The Coconut Grill is a "grab and go" eatery where hamburgers and jerk chicken can be self served before being eaten on the Observation deck with its prime panorama of the Caribbean. Afternoon tea is served at the Courtyard and is a popular destination, letting people get out of the sun and catch up with what the rest of the family has been doing all day.
The resort also has its own spa so to completely wind down book a massage or a wrap in one of the four calming treatment rooms. If you are looking for a hotel that's a bit more of the traditional all inclusive family hotel, but like the notion of the stunning setting of a Caribbean beach then the Jolly Beach has to be the choice for you.
