Don't set your hopes high!!
Pros: Nanny or rather a maid for the duration of stay, small property, walkable Cons: Old dated property, no maintenance, nanny works as your room service as well so you get less of a nanny more of a maid, you get much better place to stay in same price, irregular drinks selection, no minibar at room, just one type of beer, very small and dirty beach.

Totally Relaxing and Totally Worth It!
When my husband and I were looking for a place to vacation, we saw the words "vacation nanny" and were sold. This really could have been enough to make the trip worthwhile, but FDR really is so much more. Every person on staff laughed with us and joked with our 13 month old. He was all smiles the whole time we were there and so were we. It was wonderful to relax knowing our son was in good hands. We stayed on property the whole time and that was fine by us. The beach is small but really protected, so it was a great learning beach. Our son was able to crawl in the crystal blue water and we had no fear of undertow. It is an easy walk to the neighboring resort if you want a larger beach. We stayed in a Junior Garden Suite. It was much bigger than a traditional American hotel room. It was more like a one bedroom, which was wonderful because our son could be in the crib in the living room area and we were still able to have our own space. It was perfect for our family of 3. The food was great with the main star was the breakfast. We brought a bunch of food packs with us, but we really didn't have any issue. The little guy ate all sorts of Jamaican dishes. He loved beef patties and plantains (but who doesn't?!). Many of the families had been to FDR several times before and I can certainly see why. We are already talking about returning next year and hopefully bringing other friends with young children.

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 Tripadvisor.com.I can say, that I wont be returning to FDR in the future, however, some loved it.
