SOme girl friends and I spent 10 days at Musket Cove. IT was one of the best holidays I have ever had. Beautiful scenery, fantastic staff prepared to go that extra mile, super facilities-kaying, paddleboarding, snorklelling, island hop trips, trip to Shell village, lovely pools and delicious food. I couldn't stop telling everyone about it when I got home. When... More

The only thing I wish we had done was book here for longer. It was our first time to Fiji and we had been reccommended to stay out on an island. We thought 2 nights would be plenty because we would get a bit bored but we were proven wrong with this resort. Great welcoming a welcoming drink of a... More

My cousin and I recently stayed at Musket Cove for nine days. We were in the Armstrong Villas where we were very spoilt by the lovely Kara. The villa was exceptional with the facilities top class. A lovely location , the only drawback was it was a bit far from the main pool and restaurant. The staff were all friendly,... More

We have stayed at Musket Cove timeshare 3 times, it's great, the staff know you from pervious visits and are very welcoming. The island is very beautiful, and the timeshare has the best beach. There is so much you can do on the island, but if you want to relax and just enjoy, this is the best place to be.

We stayed at Musket Cove for 3 nights, in a Beach Bure, in early June. It was a last minute decision to attend a wedding on Malolo Lailai Island, where the resort is situated. The actual wedding was at a nearby resort. The arrival and welcome was great and Nai the welcome host was perfect for her role and so... More

The Musket Cove is good for familes and couples and the staff so friendly and accommodating. We were lucky to get an early check-in too. Food and beverage very good and pool and water activities and snorkelling was very enjoyable. The other resorts are poor quality for food and beverage so only eat at Musket Cove. The mini supermarket is... More

We stayed at Musket Cove for several nights in a Garden Bure, which was beautifully decorated, quiet and private. Plenty of room, a gorgeous outdoor shower, and little touches like fresh homemade biscuits each day, and supplies of bottled water resplenished daily. The beach is the best of the three resorts on the island, the others being Plantation Resort and... More
