Return guest

I think this was my 4th time to this resort. Although the rooms are small and very old, I keep coming back for the beach and the people. The beach is beautiful and the staff are so amazing. Its a very laid back resort with no frills or fancy food or drinks. Just your very basic needs, which is fine by me. I will be returning to Jolly Beach Resort again for sure.

Awful room maintenance

Food, drinks, beach and pool was great. But the rooms set ups are below standard. The reception wanted me to pay extra money to upgrade my rooms It’s a ripoff... standard rooms should be equipped with all the basic appliances. Air conditioner was broken. Asked them to fix it. After they fixed it barely worked. There was no hair dryer and no iron in the room. Mosquitoes and bugs came to my room. The cleaning person did not mop the floors, There was no pillow cases in my bed. Horrible room maintenance. I complained to the reception. They changed my rooom to other standard room. Anyways the other room sucked too. I decided to suck it up and try to enjoy my vacation. I spend more of the day outside my room.. I went to the pool, beach, and did few excursions.

Not a do-over

Jolly beach was amazingly beautiful with it's turquoise water and perfect sand. Antigua was gorgeous with beach and mountain views. Starfish resort was not so great. Our room was "not ready" when we arrived 1 1/2 hours after standard check-in time. We went with a party of 12 people that arrived after us... their rooms were ready. Our room fit only a double bed with no other room in the actual room itself. The shower had no light in it and even a master contortionist would have a lot of difficulty shaving in there. The only working outlet in the room was under what was supposed to be the air conditioner, which dripped on the only working outlet and is a questionable choice when plugging in electronics. There was an electric fire (shocker) below us one day and we were without power half the day. Upon inquiring about these things, the front desk was not helpful at all. We paid up front through cheap Caribbean, so I feel like they got our money already so did not care to fix it. When inquiring about a room upgrade, they said would be an extra $40 a night, of which I was willing to pay, but they were "already booked or promised to someone else", even though the resort was 30% capacity. Our party made reservations for dinner at Lydia's the seafood restaurant and the cook did no show up for 3 hours. Do not waste your money at this place!

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.
