FDR Pebbles


The focus at FDR Pebbles is soft adventure, where the emphasis is on learning as well as fun. You will learn about the history of the island first hand and experience the ecology of coral reefs and its surroundings. Including the "eighth wonder of the World" the luminous lagoon.

While staying at FDR Pebbles, your children will learn where bananas come from, and why the Caribbean Sea glistens and dances in the richest blues ever imagined.

FDR Pebbles' Small World kids club opens from 7:00 A.M. daily and is just busting with the latest in state of the art educational and computer games in addition to untold hours of well just great supervised fun. Then there's a computer learning center for the serious computer buffs.

We know Tom Sawyer would approve of FDR Pebbles' Teen's Programs. The Resort has set aside it's own supervised tropical "campsite" for outdoor camping under so many stars, your teens won't believe they're real. They'll be taken on beach parties, hiking, cycling trips on all terrain bicycles, field trips up the Martha Brae River and learn about the flora and the fauna that are indigenous to the island. They will even learn how to sail a sunfish or windsurf. Children of all ages will be taken to heritage sites and even a town that got its running water before New York City did. And then they'll come back with stories about how fascinating Jamaica is.

FDR Pebbles has not forgotten about parents in developing its vision for family vacations. So while your children are learning about Jamaica's ecological life, you can relax in hammocks dotted around the property, play tennis, basketball or enjoy a game of competitive beach volleyball. Enjoy the poolside or the fitness room which offers the latest in equipment and instruction. FDR Pebbles will take you on a tour of a working sugar plantation and historical and ecological trips in the parish of Trelawny. At nights join in the fun at the Piano Bar and sing along with your newly-found friends. Charges for babysitting services are anything but steep and well worth it if you want to stay out late.

The cuisine is exceptional. The dining area is on an open terrace with stunning views offering all day buffet dining. There is also a Jamaican restaurant which features specialties like Jamaican jerk pork, Jerk chicken and beef patties.

Located on the oceanfront, these cedar wood junior suites with elaborate fretwork are decorated in tropical colors to achieve a Jamaican style ambiance and are nestled among the trees. Most will have ocean views.
