We enjoyed our Starfish Cove stay. It was relaxing, the facilities were great and we had all we needed to be self sufficient. Apartment had cooking gear and small double hot plate plus microwave. We had washing machine and dryer. Simple continental breakfast provided and left in fridge when daily room service attended. Fresh pastries delivered daily at your nominated... More

This is a very long review but I wanted to describe our experience as it was very different from the usual resort style places. Our extended family of 3 Adults, 2 young children and a 10 month old baby stayed here for 7 nights in 2 rooms. The view of the lagoon was magnificent from our adjoining 2nd floor rooms... More

The staff were the best, helpful, friendly and very accomodating. Even though it is out of town a bit a short bus trip for a reasonable price and you are in town. The apartment was just what we needed, it rained for 3 days and we were not crammed in a room. The facility covered what we wanted, we can't... More

Last week we enjoyed a most comfortable and wonderful stay at the Starfish Cove, we were 3 families travelling together and found the staff really friendly and helpful. Our absolute favourite was the Teppanyaki restaurant on the property, excellent!!! Above average compared to all the other restaurants we experienced.

Great value for money with great staff & excellent location overlooking the lagoon. It now has a wonderful Japanese Teppanyaki restaurant serving lunch & dinner. It is located on a main road but once inside the apartment there is hardly any noise to be heard at all. Yes, it could do with a bit of a reno but as stated... More

We stayed at Starfish Cove in April this year. The room we got was lovely, well appointed and very clean. Had great views straight onto the Second Lagoon. The staff were lovely and very helpful, but sadly the rest of the resort was in desperate need of an upgrading. The restaurant was closed so no meals served there (although its... More

Brilliant staff and superb place, this was an amazing place to relax and to enjoy an easy holiday! It's also an easy trip to town to take advantage of all the restaurants around, I loved it so much I'm actually thinking about going back next year for a longer period! If you want to be treated with golden gloves, this... More

We stayed here for one week. The restaurant had gone into liquidation and we were not told prior to arrival. Manager was very unhelpful about the situation as we had arrived thinking we would be able to have some room service which was also not available. Breakfast was include but ended up being bread and a box of cereal. Would... More

We got a great deal through Living Social Deals for a short stay here and we were very satisfied with the accommodation. The unit was spacious and clean , was serviced every day , was very quiet even though it is on a busy road you don't hear much of the traffic from inside, and the staff were always friendly.... More
