The gorgeous Jolly Harbour Marina, which boasts a bevy of fabulous restaurants and striking sunset views overlooking the boats bobbing on the marina, is only a short walk away, making it the perfect choice for those who don’t want to go far for entertainment.
For those who really want to treat themselves on their holiday, there is the option to book a deluxe two-bedroom suite, which has a large, wrap-around balcony with a Jacuzzi. While we didn’t see these suites, they definitely sound like the way to go!
During our stay, we observed many of our fellow guests zipping around the resort in golf carts, which we discovered can be hired from reception for $28 USD per day (or $145 USD for one week). If you don't wish to hire a golf cart, you can also take advantage of the golf cart courtesy shuttle (available daily from 9 am to 9 pm) to take guests to the Epicurean Supermarket and Jolly Harbour shops and dining venues.
Overall, this a great ‘no frills’ property for a young family or two couples seeking a casual accommodation within easy reach of all of Jolly Harbour Marina and Jolly Harbour Beach.
Prices from $208 USD per night (for a one bedroom suite).
Most suited for
Young families looking for budget-friendly accommodation near Jolly Harbour Beach.
We loved having so much space to ourselves and it was great having a bathtub to soak in after a long day at the beach. We also enjoyed the sheer convenience of the location as we could easily walk to the beach, the grocery store and the harbour.
The gym at Jollly Beach Resort, which is in serious need of a refurb. All of the equipment is ancient and in need of repair, which was a serious let down in comparison with the rest of the property, which was lovely.
Stock up on grocery essentials and sunscreen at Epicurean, the closest supermarket and pharmacy, which is located in Jolly Harbour across the street from what used to be the Jolly Harbour Casino.
