We had a wedding group staying here and have really enjoyed our stay. The grounds and rooms were well spread out. We enjoyed the range of food although the BBQ at the sand bar was a bit difficult to cook. The chicken was not cooked properly but since we did it ourselves it must have been us. The snorkelling was... More

What I remember most is teaching my 12 year old daughter to sailboard The bay was perfect. Only waist deep and I could walk around following her Food was really good and we stayed in an Armstrong island villa which was great As other reviewers said the locals are friendly and always happy

Our family went to Musket Cove Resort for my son's wedding. It was a wonderful occasion out on the island and then the reception with tables set out on the sand. It was very low key with the island choir welcoming us and drinks in the yacht club and then a lazy walk to the reception along the beach. The... More

My family of 2 adults and 3 children aged 12,9 and 7 years stayed at Musket Cove island resort. I have stayed at a few of the island resorts in Fiji but this is by far the best. We stayed in an Armstrong Villa which is located a few minutes walk from the main restaurant and pool. The villas are... More

We just spent 7 nights at musket and loved every second. We will definitely go back. The resort is wonderful, the food was great, the staff were fantastic. The beach was great, the pool was great although quite salty and a bit cold. There were lots of people staying there but you wouldn't have known it, at times we felt... More

Everything was great. The friendly staff made our 6 night stay a very happy one. The facilities and Garden Bure rooms we stayed in were great. Dick's place had amazing food. My boyfriend and I talked about eating at another restaurant on the island but never actually did because we didn't want to miss out on tasting an item on... More

We returned after 5 years and were impressed with the improvements made. The location is still the tranquil beautiful site, the beach still empties out but the pool is great. The rooms are excellent, well spaced out beautifully appointed.. The Menu has improved and I believe the restaurant service will be better soon as there is a new Maitre D... More

Bula from Musket Thanks for taking the time to write. As much as we love receiving compliments, we must also accept criticisms. No excuse for our team not giving you enough information. To be honest all trips are explained in the compendium and on signs. But we will do better. Musket operates twice daily FREE snorkel excursions to the same... More

We just spent 6 days staying in the Armstrong Villas and it exceeded my expectations. Delightful outlook from your own deck over the water, very clean and adequately provisioned for self catering. Very generous size in the rooms and the living area, and a large deck. Whilst it is quite a way to the main pool, the free use of... More
