We just returned from FDR yesterday, and felt that we had to write a review right away. We went with our two children, a four-year-old boy and a 13-month-old girl. This was the best place to go with young children. We were able to have such a good balance between spending time with our kids and having relaxing time away...

We just got back from a five night stay at FDR and I have to say that I am very satisfied. For context, my husband and I went to FDR with our two girls (ages 2Y & 4.5Y). We were meeting my brother and his family there (they have two girls ages 18M and 5Y). We chose FDR for three...

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 would definitely return

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 time relaxing that in the week that we stayed we never managed to go scuba...

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 hundred excellent reviews. I truly thought that there would be no surprises. I was wrong...

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 the hammocks or go snorkelling. Our nanny was fantastic! She took great care of the...

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 fun activities for each member of the family. Our room was lovely and we were...

I stayed at FDR for 5 days with my family (including two children aged 3 and 6). Without a doubt, this is the most kid-friendly resort that I've ever stayed at (my previous resort experience includes trips to Ochos Rios, Turks & Caicos, Cancun and Varadero). The entire FDR staff is incredibly friendly. In my opinion, the resort's biggest draw...

We just returned from a week stay at FDR. This is our third time visiting the FDR Family, staying once at Pebbles. I can not say enough about this terrific, intimate resort which clearly caters to families. This is not the Four Seasons or the Ritz!

We just arrived home from FDR last night. It was our first visit. We travelled with our 11 month old and 3 1/2 year old daughters. We found the resort to be very family-friendly and the staff attentive and professional.

“A room with a view of the ocean is always much better and rooms further from the pool would be quieter.”
