About Us - Franklyn D. Resort and Spa (FDR) is Jamaica's first all-suite, all-inclusive, boutique resort designed to celebrate the family with a level of caring unequalled at any other resort in the world.

Property - FDR is an all-inclusive resort for families built in a low-rise Tuscan-style architectural style, surrounded by gardens bordered by a white sand beach and the Caribbean Sea to the North. There are 4 restaurants, 2 swimming pools and separate activity centres for children and teens, providing a wide variety of supervised activities. Our 100-foot-long waterslide, affectionately called Big Blue, creates a lot of excitement for kids and adults alike.

There is a nominal charge of US$4.00 per hour if you require her services after 4:40 p.m. She will care for your children all day, from giving them a bath to feeding them to taking them to their activities, so Mom and Dad can enjoy their holidays too.
