Jolly Amazing

I’ve been to a lot of resorts in many countries and I must say this place is absolutely amazing. From the moment you arrive you feel right at home. The staff are so polite and friendly the grounds clean and the views are just breathtaking. I wanted to do a private island tour of a few of the most talked about sites but wasn’t sure who to contact. I went to the front desk they sent me to the taxi stand and the drivers were more than willing to accommodate, this made for one awesome day. The resort has daily and nightly activities that keep the guests engaged and always having fun. I would more than recommend this resort to anyone and can’t wait to return.

Best beach ever!

We absolutely loved Antigua!! The locals were so kind and the beaches and water were absolutely breathtaking . The starfish jolly resort had some positives and negatives. The positives are we have never been to a beach where the water was so beautiful and so calm, it was super easy to swim in and you could snorkel right off the shore with no issues at all. Super safe beach with a little haggling from locals to purchase excursions. The food choices were OK. They had a nice assortment for breakfast every morning . The outside grill was very yummy, the jerk chicken is some of the best I’ve ever had . For dinner, Lydia is is by far the best and we were not a fan of the Italian restaurant at all . My biggest complaint would be the quality of the rooms. They were extremely small with zero storage space, no drawers to put your stuff in and barely a closet at all. The beds were not cozy, pretty hard and the sheets were rough. Other than this, we actually had a very nice vacation and we got a great value for our money we spent! Again, I would book here just to go back to their beach!! Antigua was a dream!

Great Vacation

We are 3 single woman that travel quite often. Antigua happens to be one of our favorite islands. The hotel itself is very dated and the rooms are just ok..... but the beaches are amazing. So much so that we didn't go to the pool once while we were there. The restaurants are also dated and the presentation of the food isn't the best but the food was quite good. Breakfast was good every morning with a nice selection of entrees along with two omelet stations. Miss Judith was there to sing to us and make us feel very welcome every morning. The wait staff was very attentive also. The rooms are old and the beds are ok but we didn't spend much time in the room to notice. There are bugs but you are on a tropical island. Don't forget bug spray cause there are a lot of mosquitos. There was no waitress service on the beach except for one day. There are no annoying vendors trying to sell things except for the guys selling tours. We met "Cloud" on the beach and he hooked us up with an island tour and also a trip to Shirley Heights. You can Definitely negotiate with them on the tours. Overall we enjoyed our stay there and would definitely return there again if we got another package like we did.

Horrible Experience

We loved the beach and the workers on the resort. The workers were friendly and very considerate to all the guests.The gifts in the room was a pleasant surprise.However,we were never warned that there was no elevator on the premises. We were on the forth floor which we initially requested. We seemed to be the only couple on the floor.Many guests complained about leaks on the roof with water on the floor in their room. The hotel 's maintenance was very poor. Our room door was a problem.since we had to lift the knob in order to open and close the door., The screens had holes in the the dining area .The paint was pealing on the walls. The was an incident on the beach that took security about twenty minutes to resolve. We were seated under a shaded area when there was profanity yelled by a native woman going after a security guard, One man punched another and he ran behind us picking up two large stones and chased after him, This was upsetting and difficult to witness especially when when on vacation. Respectfully, Mario DeLuca

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.
