We traveled as a couple for my husband's birthday. The resort is a little older, but still very clean. We had the Turtle Beach Room on the 3rd floor, which was very clean and had comfortable beds. All the rooms had ocean views, which is nice. The fridge was filled with soft drinks at the beginning of our stay but was not refilled during the week. There was also free wifi all over the resort, which was a nice plus. The beach had dark sand that got very hot during the day. The water was also very warm, but there were quite strong waves, which made getting into the water a bit more difficult. The swimming pools were small and shallow, but clean. The resort normally has a lot of leatherback turtles that visit the beach, but during our stay in March, there was only one. The food was good, but had a limited selection. We didn't have trouble getting something good to eat though. We didn't sample many of the drinks, but only had the beer, and red/white wines, which were fairly good. For my husband's birthday, the resort staff sent us a bottle of champagne, which was very appreciated. We also paid extra to have a lobster dinner at a gazebo behind the restaurant. The staff were very friendly and hard-working. We booked an island tour through Sunwing, where they took us around various spots around the island. The flight is almost 7 hours on the way back with no meal, so bring some snacks with you. Overall the location is great and there's a lot of potential. With a renovation, this can be one of the best resorts in the area.

Travelled at the end of February 2020 for 10 days and had a wonderful relaxing holiday at the Starfish Resort. It is a lovely seafront resort, yes a little dated but all the more charming for it. All rooms are sea facing and our room was on the second floor.It was quite spacious and the beds were super comfortable with the air con being nice and quiet, the room was cleaned daily to a high standard with towels replaced if required. All the staff were really friendly and worked hard to make sure you had an enjoyable stay, to many to mention, Cheryl in D'Bay, Ruth in the restaurant.and Trevor & Selwyn in the bar (Trevor don't forget to put Stella's Sundowner on the Cocktail list!). It was lovely having breakfast looking at that amazing beachfront view watching the pelicans diving, sunset from the terrace was also spectacular. All meals were buffet style but could have had more choice at lunch and evening, occasionally had to wait a little while for food being replenished. It was nice to have nightly evening entertainment that was very enjoyable. We were also extremely lucky to witness a giant leatherback turtle laying her eggs one night. Yes it is a 3* resort but you could pay double and would not have a better location or staff, you would not be disappointed staying at the Starfish and recommend visiting before it is replaced

We visited the resort from Feb 27 to March 5, 2020. This was our 4th Starfish resort, so knew, more or less, what to expect. Guest’s age group: mostly retired. The resort’s age shows everywhere. The food is consistent with the other Starfish resorts, good quality with limited choice. The servers are mostly friendly. The only restaurant never opens on time. There is a second, beach grill, opened from 11 am to 6 pm, where you have to pay to eat something half-decent. The bartenders were friendly and fast to serve you. The bar had also a price list for the most popular cocktails. Rooms: we stayed in a Turtle category, which was comfortable and properly cleaned. Surprisingly great Air conditioning. Nightly entertainment, with one Reggae night exception, was very limited. The beach is amazing, with grey sand and tints of black (volcanic), very wide and about a mile long. It is naturally clean, there was no seaweeds and the water is crystal-clear. For shade, there are palms, mangoes and almond trees. The umbrellas are mostly broken. The Sunwing rep, Eva, has gone far beyond her duties to help us. The resort was short-staffed. The Food Manager, Mr. McEwan filling in everywhere. There is no reef or snorkeling on the hotel beach. We only took one trip to Pigeon Point Park, Buccoo Reef and Nylon Pool, which includes snorkeling, and I do recommend it. Conclusion: we recommend the resort to beach lovers on budget who are not fussy about food choices or entertainment quality.

Stayed here Feb 27 - March 12/20. There were a few hick-ups along the way but nothing that would warrant a negative review! Room was spacious, clean & plenty of hot water. Staff are friendly & helpful - engage with them in a friendly respectful manner & you'll receive the same in return. Grounds are lovely & cared for. Meals were at the main buffet, with additional choice of D Bay Grill for lunch for burgers, fries, salad, pizza. Cheryl worked super hard to serve everyone in a timely manner. A few nights were open for a la carte (included) by reservation. Items at extra cost were clearly indicated. The food was average to good & wine was good! There was absolutely always something to enjoy at the buffet restaurant: fantastic soup, fresh rolls, salad, several veg, fish plus 2 meats. Ask for the homemade ice cream! Shurla & Nakeesha in diningroom were super! Damien & Gabriel: best Pina Coladas, hands down. Damien was always working hard to ensure food/beverage department ran smoothly. Pool is lovely but needs a little TLC. Do seek out Ellis (offers tours on the beach): Excellent all day private tour including Lover's Beach and Pirates Bay. Beware of Blade! We appreciated the fact that evening entertainment and the bar at the resort shut down by 11:00 p.m. If you're looking to be entertained by loud music and activities all day long, then this resort is not for you! If you want a lovely peaceful holiday, then this is the place! We would definitely return.

Absolutely loved this resort and the people. Certainly never had a problem with food while there and enjoyed breakfast every morning. 99.5% staff are outstanding and Eva the Sunwing Rep was a marvel. Fractured my foot the second day in Tobago and Eva plus the resort staff couldn't have been more helpful. Also, kudos to the Scarborough General Hospital and Mr. Benjamin, the taxi driver. Found the resort to be clean and loved the fact the towels were not worn out and did not have to exchange a ticket for them. Cleaning staff were very friendly and obliging. Would go back in a heartbeat. We did the island tour with Sunwing but I would never recommend going to Argyle waterfalls as it is a rocky walk in and getting into the pool is climbing over slimy rocks. Sheryl at the Grill is an outstanding person and always cheerful and the food is good too.
