    I chose the Jolly Starfish as I was travelling with my 11yr old and felt that the facilities would suit both of us well enough for a week. Having read many reviews before booking, I wasn't surprised that the hotel was a little 'tired' as far as upkeep is concerned, or that the staff (most of them, anyway!) were friendly and upbeat. I had been a little worried that there would be huge amounts of noise and activity around the pool area but these worries were unwarranted. The hotel provided plenty of opportunity for those interested to join groups for pool volleyball or pool aerobics and various art/craft activities etc, but none of these were invasive and we could still enjoy the swim up bar, pool side and beach without being constantly disturbed by too much noise! The beach is as stunning as reported, and the hotel provides Hobi Cats, Paddle Boards and Kayak's which are free to use if staying on the All Inclusive package. There are people on the beach who rent out jet ski's at the rate of $50US for 30 mins and you can also book some excursions with them too. I had read that the deluxe rooms were near the Italian Holiday Club and therefore noisy. It's true that ALL the deluxe rooms are in that 'wing' of the hotel but, apart from the first night, the club didn't bother us as they have to quieten down by 10 or 11pm. The hotel is bigger than expected but never seemed too busy except for during the Carnival weekend when there was a big influx of guests and a longer than usual wait at the lunch time burger bar!! I'm not sure I would appreciate the hotel as much in high season, but at the time of year when we visited, it was lovely. I requested a nice room with beach view as it was going to be my birthday and they couldn't have done better with their choice. We stayed in Room No. 210 in the St. Croix block which we really enjoyed.

    I took various electrical items but only one adaptor plug ... sadly the plug sockets weren't the same as my adaptor so I couldn't use my hairdryer or straighteners etc!! There was a coffee machine in the room but only one place where it would plug in, so I would like to think they will get that sorted at some point. I booked a deluxe room as it had a safe in it, which I presumed would be free to use due to the extra room cost, however, this was wrong and we were charged a daily rate in order to use the safe. There were no bottles of water in the rooms which would have been nice ... even if it were just that first day, and the TV is completely rubbish with a bad picture and bad reception. The guys at the watersports desk can be rather sultry, but one of them is very chatty once you get talking. The man who teaches sailing seems pretty grumpy and miserable but the morning restaurant staff are quite the opposite with a song (theoretically) to brighten your day .... EVERY DAY!!

    Words can’t explain how beautiful Jolly beach is. The property was located on the best beach on the island. The beach is pristine with beautiful white sand and clear water perfect for snorkling, sailing, swimming all on the resort property. The staff were genuine and very attentive and always had a smile on their face. The food was amazing with every meal and served a wide variety. This resort is perfect for families, couples, children, friends etc. the resort has something to offer everyone. We can not wait to get back and stay even longer next time!

    The only minor inconvenience was having to go to designated WiFi areas to receive connection. This was also a positive thing because it forced you to completely disconnect.
