Fun in the sun

Although hotel is a 3 star service and entertainment was a 5 star. Beach was beautiful and long. Nice beach to walk and collect shells. Food was fresh , no complaints. Staff was pleasant and courteous. All members went above and beyond. Only complaint was the resort was full when we arrived on a Friday.Paid for a junior suite. Our room wouldn’t be ready till Saturday afternoon. We were down graded to king room the first night in the older section of resort. Absolutely hated that area. It was old , musty and run down. The Vera club area ( St. John) section was un inviting as well. We almost left because accommodation were so dungie looking and smelled of mold. Was happy we toughed the night and day out. Saturday we were moved to newer section of resort. The St. Lucia area. All the room areas are broken down into regions representing an island of the Caribbean. It was very cool . Our junior suite was amazing . Out dated yet still amazing. Had two balconies both with Ocean and garden view . They truly made up for what was a most disappointing first impression. Had a beautiful time, learned some history and culture . Would definitely go back to Antigua. It’s a beautiful and safe island that is rich in culture and history.

Worth it

The Beach is amazing! There are areas in need of repair throughout the resort. The room was clean and comfortable but not luxurious. This is a 3 star resort. The food was very good. The options are limited. The pools were clean with some needed repairs. We would definitely return for the beach. It’s a good value.

Good value - great beach

If you are vacationing for the beach, this is the place to go. The beach is long and there are plenty of lounges so you don't have to get up at 6 am to reserve one - a problem at many other resorts! The rooms are really basic, more like motel rooms. However, every room faces the water with either patios or balconies. The food is average but the service is good. Excellent value

Outdated Property

Resort was dated 70ish. Was clean in most part but rough around the edges. We were in room 111 the first 2 nights then then water pipes in the wall of the bathroom broke and we had a flood in our room. Thank goodness that happened while we were in the room and was able to move everything off of the floor. Had about 1 1/2 inch of water on the entire room floor. Called front desk and waited but nobody came. We went to the reception area and they said they would get housekeeping and maintenance to clean it up. After breakfast we went back to room and the water was coming out of the door and a security guy was there. We waited in to pack up our stuff to move to another room. Once again went to front desk and they kept telling us different stories. Needed a 1st floor room as I have a hip issue and cannot walk stair. Explained this to them several times and they at first they said yes we have a 1st floor room for you. After several hours they told us no first floor room available and that they were totally booked. Asked to speak to a manager. 30 minutes later a manger met us in the lobby and worked to get us another first floor room. She did a good job of getting the situation resolved. 4+ hours we were in a new room. So needless to say that was a wasted day, Al a carte restaurants are a joke, Trying to get reservations is a chore. However buffet was good and they switched it out enough for our liking. Overall the food was good. Workers are friendly but not empowered to solve problems. Because of my difficulty walking we were told that we could call for the golf cart driver to pick us up when needed. The one day we really needed them to drive us to the security gate to meet our excursion they were out getting gas and nobody was available. Rained pretty hard several times a day and the ceiling in the bathroom off of the courtyard would drip on you as your sat on toliet plus made the floors very slippery. Heard many complaints from other visitors about rusty water, no water pressure etc. Would not recommend this resort and I think Cheap Caribbean should take it off of their selections.

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.
