We stayed at Starfish Cove for 14 nights in a one bedroom apartment which was nicely furnished and fully self contained. When we arrived there was a welcome drink, a lovely bowl of fresh fruit and a vase of beautiful fresh exotic flowers in our living room The apartment overlooked the Lagoon, in a very quiet location with a supermarket...

This location is a little out of town, but that is also an advantage. Buses are a plenty and cheap so no issue getting back and forth. The staff, especially Alex, were more than helpful and very friendly. A real pleasure. The location on the second lagoon was magical and relaxing. The room was in the original section and needed...

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
