We had a great holiday in musket cove! We had a very welcome greeting with the singing. Loved the pool area and the beach. The food was pretty good, I didn't love it but I think it was my taste buds getting used to Fijian cuisine. We did however love the pig on the spit buffet. The marina island bar... More

Perfect for a restful, relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings. I understand that the resort is owned and managed by Fijians, and it does feel authentically Fijian. (Perhaps those who have written poor reviews were expecting a more standardised, Westernised resort experience?) The staff were wonderfully friendly and helpful. Good email communication with the manager beforehand, as well as with the... More

I had a massage at the Mandara Spa which was lovely however the masseuse took off my bangle which I then accidently left behind in my haste to use the bathroom. When I rang and returned to the spa to reclaim it they denied it was there despite my masseuse acknowledging she took it off and put it on the... More

Bula Upon reading your review I must say that I am glad we have the right to reply. Firstly, you did not stay at Musket Cove, you were staying at Plantation Island Resort. However this does not diminish the seriousness of your accusation. Without entering into a he said she said scenario. Allow me to say this. Our staff are... More

Arrival-we took the Malalo cat. The first stop plantation resort and only 2 minutes later around the marina to Muskat Cove. On arrival we were greeted by a singing band, and taken on a buggy to the lounge. At the lounge we filled out paperwork and were presented with a drinking coconut and a cool face towel. Check in time... More

Bula and thankyou for your kind words. Please allow me to address a couple of your comments. The building of our new Trader is complete. All that's left is some decking, flooring and painting. I will post some pics on our website Island News page. I am really sorry about noise from Plantation disturbing your peace and quiet. I have... More

Great Food, friendly staff, excellent pool and the complementary long boat to the sandbar for Snorkling was great . We stayed in a waterfront suite on Armstrong Island which was very clean and presentable. Love that it was self contained and the resort has a mini supermarket for supplies . Complementary WiFi and great cocktails around the main pool area... More

We stayed at Musket Cove for 4 nights at the beginning of November, we had perfect weather and the resort was beautiful. The staff are all so friendly. We had a beach front bure and loved it, it had a more 'Fijian' feel to the room but had everything we needed. We did a few of the free water activities... More

My partner recently had a short 2 night stay at Musket Cove Resort and were very happy with the the experience and the level of service. The food was great (at Dick's restaurant), and we took advantage of some of the free services including a snorkelling tour, and hire of kayaks. We did also hire some bikes to ride around... More

I had the most magical wedding at Musket cove, organised perfectly by the wonderful Gloria & the Musket cove team. I had absolutely no stress in planning it out, everything was organised as I wanted right from Accomodation, the chapel, food, drink, flowers & the most spectacular setting right there on the pool deck overlooking the serene blue waters. Most... More

It is not the absolute best, but the people are nice and try hard. Would be fine with staying there again. Food was really good and wi-fi great in lobby bar area. pool perfect and picturesque. be aware of the very shallow beach that causes a shocking tidal change twice daily. snorkeling is available right off the island for free...
