Star fish jelly resort review

Hello everyone, this resort is the largest all inclusive resort on antigua. It's a beautiful island and the resort has the best beach of the whole island. The resort itself is outdated for example the rooms need updating but the delicious food and the super friendly staff here makes you forget the outdated rooms. I chose to stay in the supersaver room but I highly don't recommend anyone one who's a couple or worst yet a family to stay in a supersaver room because the rooms are the size of a closet. There's absolutely no room to move around or even function on a normal basis yet alone a larger size family. We upgraded to a king size room with a super noisy AC which leaked water whenever it was used. It was so loud that we couldn't sleep with it on and had to use a regular fan to keep up cool. There was even a suite but the locations of the suites was on the other side of the resort far away from everything. The entertainment really sucks, they have karaoke, bingo with crappy prizes. It's more for the older crowds but we're in our middle thirties so we want music and dancing with other lively entertainment for all ages not just older crowds. Honestly I would come back here again in the far future but hopefully by then the rooms and the entertainment will be better suited. The pools are very large and resort is fairly clean and the people are super friendly. The beach vendors who sell water sports and other services are a huge problem when you're just trying to enjoy the beach but they're on you like flies on cheap. They just dont know when to give up and leave you alone. The island life is beautiful here on Antigua and the resort is outdated but dont let that stop you from experiencing this island resort escape from reality and let them cater to all your needs while you stay here. i

Not what I expected (negative)

To start off, the price of air fair and stay was a great deal. However, when you get to the resort you notice that it’s not a “Luxury” resort. By that I mean the building is falling apart. The resort was built in 1979, Im confuised because it looks like it could’ve been built in the 1600s. It’s 2018, 1979 is not that long ago so why is everything outdated? The walls are cement, the paint colors aren’t flattering and the walls are chipped and rusted. Don’t get me wrong though, the employees are really sweet and are all about you having fun, no complaints there. The food? Sucks. I was expecting meals with bursts of flavor since Antigua is in the Caribbean but instead I had food that taste like salt and pepper was their only seasoning. The resort only had 3 restaurants, 1 buffet. The alcohol is not that strong, however if you have shots you’ll definitely feel it after 4 of them. The room is literally a closet. There was no room to put me and my boyfriends belongings. Might as well have slept inside my luggage. The AC in our first room was throwing hot air, I was trying to be nice and not complain but I couldn’t take it anymore! Spoke to front desk and they gave us another room (closet) to stay in. This rooms AC was working properly but then we found stains on the bed sheets. As if the rooms couldn’t get worse. The house keeping employees don’t give new sheets until the 3rd day. It was terrible, sheets smelled like old men sweat and there was a blood or tomato juice stain as well. The bathroom? Ha! The bathrooms “door” was a sliding closet door with air way ridges. If you think you and your partner are close you’ll be even closer after one of you does #2 in there and the other passes out because of the stench. I would say the only thing positive is the island atmosphere you get once your on the beach. The water is beautiful and the sand is so white! It was breath taking honestly. I read the reviews for this resort prior to me purchasing it, I knew it wasn’t glamorous but I mainly just wanted to see the amazing beach. A message to management: Please knock it down and rebuild, it could be so much more! PS. The music sucks or maybe the DJ thinks everyone is in their 70’s on lunch break from the nursing home.

I took my 3 daughters for a family vacation. We had a great time . The beach was pure heaven and we enjoyed a gorgeous sunset each night. While the rooms leave a little to be desired (we knew that going into it) everything else was great. Definitely a great deal! Also met the locals on the beach. All so friendly. Say with bubbalicious who became a friend and made us jewelry. Me rocky who took my girls jet skiiing and shared his island with us.

Worst vacation experience

My family and I are completely dissappinted with our stay at Starfish Jolly Beach Resort. In one of the rooms, basic necessities such as the toilet and AC were not functioning. It took the staff over two days to fix these issues. We were shown 2 other rooms that had similar problems. Aside from the general disfunction, the rooms were OLD and uninviting. There were small bugs all over the bathroom - even a trail of ants that went from the sink, all the way up the wall, and to the shower. The toilet bowl handle was completely rusted, the faucet was falling apart, the bed cover was tattered and looked like it had never been washed - truly disgusting! The TVs looked like they came from the 1970s, there was no Wifi, and they would not comply with our original request of double beds (they charged $40 extra per night for that...). The conceirge asked for our feedback with a survey, and when we gave them our feedback on two separate occasions, they did the bare minimum to make our stay more accomodating. When they escorted us to a new room to see if we wanted to switch, the staff member was impolite, unwelcoming, and rude. The room, by the way, faced the same issues as before (broken AC, springs coming out of the mattress). It was a nightmare dealing with such unreceptive people who rolled their eyes at you. In all my years of travelling to resorts, I have never been so appauled by accomodations and hotel management. I wish someone had commented the honest truth about this place before we wasted our money here. Save your money people, and stay far away from this resort. Only instant coffee in the whole resort. The gym had 4 AC units, only 1 was on, others were broken for 8 days. Also broken one of the 2 treadmills there. Very poor management!

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.
