No, it's not named after the U.S. president. This resort invaded Montego Bay and quickly became the most family-friendly place in the area. It's even better than its parent outside Ocho Rios. FDR lies a 35-minute drive east of the airport, opening onto the waterfront and a beach. The resort is an all-inclusive property of cedarwood accommodations designed with real Jamaican flair, offering spacious living and bedroom areas, plus generous balconies opening onto a view. It's most suited for families with two children, although a larger family can be very comfortable in adjoining units. Everything is geared toward family fun, with an array of activities including fishing and swimming in a nearby river and hiking along nature trails. Each family is assigned a "vacation nanny," who helps with housekeeping and babysitting. In the restaurant, first-rate ingredients are fashioned into a rather standard repertoire of both Jamaican and American dishes. A 3-night minimum stay is required.
