The perfect annual getaway for couples and families is this classy timeshare resort right at the beach on Antigua’s verdant west coast. Jolly Harbour Beach Resort has two swimming pools and is a mere hop, skip and jump from dazzling Lignum Vitae Bay and its Jolly white beach.
Antigua is the main island of the small Antigua and Barbuda group and enjoys plenty of Caribbean sun and tranquillity away from the excesses of normal life. The resort is wonderfully set amid acres of striking, lush gardens and yet there is plenty to do here, both at the beach with various water sports activities, as well as in Jolly Harbour where there are shops, restaurants and boat trips.
This is a massive resort with a huge range of rooms and apartments, totalling in excess of 460. They all face the sea and have large balconies or wide patio area (on the ground floor level). These are spread across just four floors and go from standard studios/typical hotel rooms with satellite TV to triples, superior, kings, and junior suites with nice living area.
In addition, families and couples have the choice of cottages, which come in one or two bed configurations with spacious lounge and veranda. The pool area is beautifully set, surrounded by palms and loungers and virtually falls onto the beach. There’s also a children’s pool and a good range of activities available to both youngsters and teenagers at Jolly Kidz and Teenz.
Parents have the option of being pampered at the onsite Palms Wellness Centre, with its highly rated spa offering various massages and beauty treatments. This is a fully comprehensive timeshare resort complex, with a handful of restaurants and bars with all sorts of cuisines on hand, from Caribbean to Italian, and there is live entertainment and even a casino.
St Mary’s of Antigua is one of the main places to be based on this tropical island. The equally enchanting Coco Beach is also nearby, a cycle ride or drive to the south, while island capital St John's is an easy jaunt to the north. Antigua Airport is just east of here and about a 30-minute trip from the timeshare.
Jolly Harbour Beach Resort is most popular with couples and many newlyweds choose to enjoy their honeymoon here. The hospitality is second to none and they can even organise weddings with a beach ceremony.
