We stayed for two weeks Jan/Feb 2020. Terrific beach and pool complex. Plenty of beach and pool beds, but they need more umbrellas. There are shops and vendors on the beach who sold all types of products and trips.Food in all restaurants was better than we expected, very good service from all staff. Entertainment was good fun, the staff tried really hard to make the evenings fun. Various games during the day but no pressure to join in. Our room was 2011, which was on the small side but had a great view. We had a few issues which were addressed very quickly, however we had to change rooms after the A/C stopped working. We did one trip, the round island Catamaran which was a great way to see the island, we booked though Wesley but there are many options to buy.

We were at Starfish Jolly Beach from Feb 1-15, 2020. The airport transfer and check-in process went smoothly. However, there was a problem with the key for the room safe, which required trip to the front desk, as the phone in our room did not work. (each time we had a problem, and there were a few, we had to take stairs down to front desk- no elevator)
Our room was on the 4th floor, with a wonderful ocean-front view...and that's the only positive aspect of the room! The door was not very secure, with visible cracks all around. In fact, it rained a fair bit during our stay, and the rain flooded our room (had to sop it up with bathroom towels). Air conditioner very noisy and didn't work well. We had a king bed made up with queen sheets that did not stay tucked in, revealing a lumpy and itchy mattress pad. The thin bedspread was old and ratty. There was no dresser to put our clothes away. Concrete shelves gave an appearance of what the rock ages, which the Flinstones may have found posh! There was no fridge in the room, which in this day and age, is not acceptable.I went to front desk and was told I could rent fridge for $50US. However, when the guy showed up with the fridge there was nowhere to plug it in! You can't drink the tap water, and they don't provide bottled water, so we had to lug ice to our room every day and evening.
The bathroom was rather tiny, and the shower consisted of a small tiled stall with a dingy, cheap plastic curtain. During our 2 week stay, we rarely had hot water to shower (room temp). There is no plug in the bathroom at all to use a hair dryer, which oddly enough, is stored in the closet. There's no window in the bathroom. A screen was loosely tacked over decorative holes in the concrete blocks on the wall (you could hear everything from outside, and people walking by could surely hear us doing our bathroom business!!!).
We didn't starve, but the food was just sub-par. There was not much variety. Service staff in the main dining room were pleasant. Spoons were rarely available for coffee/tea. Overall, the bartenders were great, especially Zaida. However, there were 2 that didn't seem to be enjoying their job much (older lady working day shift at main bar, and older man working evening at main bar).
We are seasoned travellers, and this has been our least favorite holiday. We asked to upgrade and were told we would be placed on the wait list (this was at a surcharge of $88 per night...) We did not end up changing rooms and despite the above, we made the best of our vacation. We enjoyed the touring the island by catamaran; we walked to the local super market, strolled down the beautiful beach and took the bus to St John's. We also strolled down Jolly Harbor and had a wonderful dinner at the Crow's Nest. As I said, we made the best of our vacan, BUT, we will never go back to this resort, which needs major renovation!

Over all, staff were pleasant, polite and attentive.

My husband and I came here for our one year anniversary. Antigua itself is beautiful. The resort was such a disappointment and ruined the trip. There are no elevators so you have to constantly go up and down the stairs. There is no room service. Our air conditioner didn’t work for two days and we got moved to a lower floor when I paid extra to be on the top floor. We lost our lockbox key the first day we were there and had to pay $30 for a new one. The next day we found the keys and they refused to refund our money. The rooms have a lot of rust and chipping in them and so do the pools. I didn’t feel relaxed at all being in that resort. The beach was beautiful and the island is beautiful but if I ever went again I would never stay in that resort.

I have been to the Caribbean many times before but never to Antigua. We stayed at the Jolly Beach Resort which was very clean, well staffed, spacious and very friendly. Everyone was very welcoming from the first day and made us feel at home. Anything you needed was always available on site within a few minutes of asking.

The white sandy beaches were beautiful and the ocean glowed that vibrant blue-green colour you see in documentaries. The food was great and there was always that Caribbean flair in every dish weather it was breakfast, lunch or dinner. I was originally apprehensive at first with dining options as I have multiple dietary restrictions, but had no problem finding great meals.

We took a local bus into the city and discovered some wonderful places. We went to the local heritage museum for some history of the island, visited an old church that was beautiful and under renovation, stopped at Hemingway’s for lunch (which I highly recommend) and then headed to to the market to find some goodies.

The entertainment at the resort was FANTASTIC and we loved the evening of “Carnival” and fire dancers during our stay. We rented a car for a day and took a self guided tour. We drove through the mountains and went to Devil’s Canyon and then toured the country side for the rest of the day. On our way back to the resort we found a beachside snack bar and decided to stop for a drink and watch the sun almost set. We visited St.John’s Harbour, toured Nelson’s Dock Yard Unesco World Heritage site, and Skullduggery Cafe! We had a blast in Antigua and highly recommended this place to visit!

Thank you to everyone in Antigua that made our stay so fantastic, but especially to my sweet “singing” friend Judith that sang me through breakfast every morning and always put a smile on my face and an extra pep to my step!!! Xo
