The Caribbean’s Best Value All-Inclusive Resort Is Open

By: Alexander Britell - December 11, 2022

Jolly Beach is a full-fledged Caribbean bucket list beach, from its ultra-white sand to its almost electric turquoise water, the kind of beach that you dream about on cold winter days. 

Jolly Beach is also home to the Caribbean’s newest hotel, a reimagining of a classic property that has a rather compelling amenity: it’s a tremendous value. 

Indeed, Antigua’s newest resort just might be the best value all-inclusive in the whole Caribbean. 

The new Jolly Beach is a relaunch of what has always been one of the Caribbean’s most famous places to stay, with a new focus on what the hotel calls the “cheap and cheerful” experience. 

And it’s certainly the best value in Antigua, centered around the spectacular white sands of Jolly Beach, with rates as low as $199 — per room, not per person.

Set on a 40-acre property, Jolly Beach is Antigua’s largest resort, with 464 rooms, with each room boasting either private balconies and terraces across five different room categories. 

Amenities include three eateries, three bars, two pools, a spa, a fitness center, tennis courts and a volleyball court.

It’s a great way to explore the richness of Antigua’s tourism offering, from the stunning western coast of the island to the cultural and historic treasures in Nelson’s Dockyard to energetic excursions all around the island with Pink Panther Safaris. 

And it’s that classic, fun in the sun kind of getaway, the one that brings us all to the Caribbean in the first place, with rum punches by the pool and lazy afternoons on the sand. 

It doesn’t hurt that it just so happens to be on one of the best beaches in the world.
