Franklyn D. Resort & Spa All Inclusive, Runaway Bay
Franklin D Resort and Spa.....Just okay
Not a five star hotel by far. The rooms and property need some updating but I guess thats due to the salt water.Check in was good, howerver my refrigerator was never stocked and I had to call daily to have it done. Some days the beds were not made, and others were late in the evening. Not many families/people there, so it was very low key and seemed if teh entertainment was reduced because of this. This was a real downer for me. The food was okay/good with breakfast the most consistent. Jerk chicken and pork were exceptional. Theres only one main bar, and at times it took 10+ minutes to get a drink. Jason, Sasha Gae, and Lloyd were goof fun bartenders. Definite asset to the FDR. One sever, Samantha, made us feeel very uncomfortable. She would make it obvious that she was staring intently at us. She never smiled and when we said good morninig to her, she replied "right". She was not an asset in my opinion. Nannies we recognized from previous trips here were also great. Be aware they operate on island time...meaning a 8 o clock fishing trip starts at 9 ish. Frank, the owner, is top notch and will do anything for you. He's on site every day. I have a much more indepth review on can say, that I wont be returning to FDR in the future, however, some loved it.
