Great Beach -Relaxed Atmosphere

We weren’t too happy when we walked in. This place is old and run down . Our room was slightly bigger than a jail cell and we upgraded before we got here . The food the first night was just terrible ! After a few days it grows on you . The beach was absolutely beautiful . The water was amazing blue . Our room though small was on the bottom floor right behind the main pool . We had a little terrace and my girlfriend fed leftover bread to the birds every morning . She even gave them names . The food was ok after the first night . You have to stand in line around 6:30 am to sign up for the specialty resturants one day in advance. We had Valentine’s Day dinner outside next to the small pool . It was great . This isn’t a luxury hotel to say the least but the atmosphere is great . The beach is incredible . The staff there is friendly . There are no snobs there from up north . It’s just a very relaxing hotel on a beautiful island . We’ve already decided we are going back

Bla!

When we were at Star Fish Jolly beach myself and my friend became very sick , we ate something that obviously was bad! The resort/ management were not trying to help at all!! The other person who went on this trip with us had to go across the street to buy water, ginger ale, because the resort ran out. We also bought gatorade !! I was in bed sick for 5 of the 8 days we were there!! Long story short, we ended up with bacterial infections and We are now taking Antibiotics! I’m so bummed The beach here is beautiful though, I did get the first 2 days on the beach but that was it!!

Good Getaway

We had a pleasant time, a comfortable room on the top floor with a lovely balcony view of the sunset. The staff is friendly and efficient. We liked having choices for dining but the reservation system of lining up early in the morning and only being able to book a day ahead was a bit annoying. I would have liked to reserve our choices in one shot. I had a good pedicure at the spa. The buffet and other dining options will please simple tastes. Wine is offered frequently but unfortunately, is not really drinkable. The sparkling wine is a better choice. We are not big cocktail people but they make good ones. My partner said the beer was not good. The beach grill offers simple freshly prepared food but the chefs were overwhelmed, creating long lines. We ate at the "fancy" Italian restaurant which not fancy at all and very loud. Note to chef: the antipasto buffet could be more creative and please, stop putting fried foods on ice! Calamari and fried mushrooms should be served hot and crispy, not cold and soggy. Also, when serving "fish cooked in a bag" it is customary for the kitchen to slice open the parchment before serving. We had brunch at Lydia's seafood which was okay, not a whole lot of seafood in the menu. We had dinner at Margarita's which was very pleasant, except for the extremely watery margarita we had at first. The best meal was our dinner on the beach, worth the premium paid. The food was fine but the setting and service (and company!) made it great for our last night. We knew what we were getting and for the value, it was fine. My partner enjoyed sailing and the beach is lovely.

Beach beach beach

Antigua is a beautiful island and #cheapcarribean made our trip smooth. Jolly beach resort staff are very friendly and accommodating. Location is premium. Beach is top rated, clean and great sunset location. Pool was large and there is a quiet pool as well. Rooms are dated but beds comfy. Food was good but repetitive. A la cart restaurants easy to book and food is good but some meals add additional price (i.e. Steak,salmon dishes), liquor and beer aren't great and service at the pool bar is poor (you are ignored). Service at the main bar and water sports center was excellent. Check in & out was a breeze. Stick to using hotel or tour company for excursions rather than local vendors on beach, which actually wake you up to try to sell their goods.

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.
