Old worn out hotel. Food was just ok. Buffet was lacking in quality. All drinks were bottom shelf. AC in the room was almost sufficient. Twice it made loud noises and spit out a mist over me in bed. Overall the staff was wonderful.

Not the best

Pretty disappointed with this resort. The room was just okay, and there were A LOT of bugs in the room as if the door was left open for a length of time at some point. The buffet was terrible, very few options and of what was there did not taste good. Not even the breakfast buffet looked good. You have to pay for Wifi basically everywhere on the resort except the courtyard. While there are 3 restaurants, only 1 was open each night. We werent even told this at check it so we kept going to the seafood place for 2 days trying to make reservations wondering why no one was there. If you didnt notice, it's on a public strip of beach so the one and only time we bothered going to the beach we were hassled by men trying to sell us waterskis or speedboat rides. The employees were really nice though. Everyone is super friendly. The pool is clean, and the grill by the pool was good and when we finally did get to eat at the seafood restaurant, that food was really good too. We didnt have a chance to try the other restaurants. Overall though, I wouldn't stay here again.

Starfish Jolly Harbor-Best Beach

Just returned from 6 days here. We were very disappointed upon arrival. The hotel is in desperate need of a face lift! Paint is peeling on walkways and in pools and staff seem disorganized and understaffed. When checking we were told we had to pay extra for king size beds. Cheap Caribbean put it down as a request...Cheap caribbean should have told us at booking it would be extra. We were 3 couples and we all had to switch rooms....AC not working. Some rooms had clocks, some had ceiling fans and some had a working phone but all 3 did not have all. No mini bar and you have to pay for a safe. Bathrooms are very small as is the room. No bureaus! we had to live out of our suitcases. The staff were excellent and very responsive but the owners are not investing in this property. We heard it used to be "the place" 20 years ago but it is now in receivership. All that said it has the BEST beach. Food is very repetitive in buffet with limited selection, but 3 restaurants are excellent. Activities are so/so. We couldn't watch the World Series on the property so we found a great bar down the street. WiFi is very sketchy and only available in the tiny lobby. If you love the beach and plan to spend your days in the sun and can overlook the rooms this is the place.The grounds are well kept and everything is clean. Went to Dreams La Romana last year...same price...and it was luxurious, bigger, free safe in rooms, service on the beach, better food, bigger rooms, free stocked mini bar, etc.

Beautiful Beach, good value

Starfish Jolly has one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean (in my opinion). The staff couldn't have been nicer and were always smiling, helpful and welcoming. The resort buildings are dated and need some upkeep but overall they are maintained well and kept clean. Our room was small but it was very comfortable. The bed was super comfortable and the view from our room (3rd floor - Martinique Bldg) was spectacular. The a/c worked - not quite as well as we hoped but it did cool the room enough for comfortable sleeping. The room was cleaned well every day. Our biggest issue was that we could not get hot water in our room until the 5th day of our visit. Since it is the Caribbean and it was very hot we could survive with a cool shower but shouldn't have had to! Although the resort has three a la carte restaurants, the food left a little bit to be desired. It was "ok". Our favorite by far was the Mexican restaurant. One of the best food options was the jerk chicken at the Coconut Grill by the Fantasy pool - it was awesome!! Overall, the value was good. It was extremely affordable for a ten day stay. The beach was absolutely beautiful (and that's really what we were there for anyway!). PS - we did a snorkel trip with Jay and Chad (they sell trips on the beach there) and it was great snorkeling!!

Hotel Description

Starfish Jolly Beach Resort: Fun-Filled Family Vacation Spot

Whether you're a family needing a break or a couple looking to heat up your romance, Starfish Jolly Beach Resort is your ticket to fun. Sitting on Antigua's beautiful western coast, on a mile-long, pearl-white beach, this 40-acre resort boasts 2 pools, 5 restaurants, 5 bars and endless activities, all at a great, all-inclusive rate.

The two freshwater pools are great, but the beach here offers an endless expanse of turquoise water just begging you to grab a kayak or Hobie Cat. Non-motorized watersports are featured in the all- inclusive rate, so you can play out in the water to your heart's content. For the land athlete, the resort also four tennis, a basketball court and even a cricket field, where you can show off your skills at the wicket.

Parents, you'll appreciate the activities the friendly staff prepares for your child at the Kidz Club. And your teenager will enjoy hanging out and having fun at the Teenz Club. For couples, we highly recommend the Palms Wellness Massage for Two at the Palms Wellness Center. This beach-side luxury is one of a complete list of spa services, like stone therapy and body wraps, which are sure to help you find your island Zen.

With 5 restaurants, you'll have plenty to choose from to fulfill your desire for tasty treats. For a lunch that's quick and delicious, wrap your towel around you and grab some jerk chicken at the poolside Coconut Grill. Eat up, because you'll need to replenish your energy for the lively nightlife, including Calypso Night, when you can sit beside a beach bonfire and listen to the beat of steel drums, while island winds caress your face.
