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.

We value and appreciate your honest feedback following your stay with us from Jan 28- Feb 6, 2016. We regret that you found the bar service less than acceptable and we will continue to work on it.
