A great choice, Starfish Jolly Beach Resort & Spa has everything needed for oodles of holiday fun! Two pools provide contrasting settings for poolside entertainment or chill out time – the larger and livelier pool is the Fantasy pool featuring music, organised games and activities, Jacuzzi, swim up bar, and a waterfall that kids just love splashing around in. The more tranquil “no activity pool” appeals to guests who appreciate a quieter pool scene that’s perfect for chilling and leisurely swimming.
It’s all about the beach about the beach – just kick back and relax along the sugar white sands of Jolly Beach and enjoy a host of complimentary non-motorised water sports including snorkelling, pedal boats, windsurfing, kayaking and beach volleyball. Of course it’s fine to do nothing except lie back and soak up the sun on one of Antigua’s best beaches, cooling off with an occasional dip in the refreshing waters of the Caribbean Sea – Starfish Jolly Beach is the perfect base for your day by the sea!
Families have a unique opportunity to create holiday memories for life by signing up for the “Jolly Family Programmes” –learn to sail and kayak like a professional and then enter the daily races to find out who’s the best, enjoy an evening of stargazing, storytelling and mini bonfires on the beach finishing off of course with roasted marshmallows for everyone. Then experience Antiguan culture and learn how to create your own bracelets, sea shell art and tie dyed shirts at the Arts and Crafts Corner. At the end of the day the kids take part their own formal dinner party whilst mums and dad’s enjoy a romantic meal for two at a restaurant of their choice – lots to do and a great way to spend time together as a family group.
Kids love making new friends and taking part in the fantastic range of organised activities at the Kids (3- 12) and Teenz Clubs (13-16) with themed nights, video games, sports events and much more to keep them amused, and to hopefully tire them out!
There’s loads more for everyone to enjoy at this amazing resort – learn how to play cricket and rounders Antiguan style, get some friends together for a game of basketball, brush up on your calypso and reggae moves at the dance classes, sharpen up your *tennis game with a lesson from the pro, enjoy a workout at the modern, air conditioned gym, relax and rejuvenate at the* Spa and Wellness Centre, play a round of *golf at one of the nearby courses and more – do as little or as much as you like at this tropical paradise.
Three bars and five restaurants means plenty of choice for everyone – Hemispheres, the main restaurant serves a tasty selection of international buffet favourites for breakfast lunch and dinner while the Coconut Grill is the place to go for lighter BBQ food and sandwiches during the day. Lydia’s open aired beachside restaurant serves up grilled seafood and great blended drinks in a casual and relaxed atmosphere – make sure you come along for the Sunday Brunch to savour the delicious Antiguan food and drinks on offer with entertainment from a lively steel band. Margarita’s serves up a fantastic selection of Mexican dishes whilst the Bocciolo Restaurant & Bar offers classical Italian cuisine served in air conditioned comfort. Reservations are required at the a la carte restaurants and supplementary charges apply at Bocciolo and to selected dishes in other venues.
When the sun goes down the fun keeps going – dance the night away to live music, learn about Antigua’s history and culture whilst enjoying colourful performances from local dance & theatre companies, enjoy magnificent sunsets and exciting limbo dancing and fire shows at the Bonfire on the Beach Night – and if you’re feeling lucky then pay a visit to the casino where you’ll find all of your favourite table games and slots just waiting to be played. Evenings at Starfish Jolly Beach have an atmosphere and ambience all of their own.
At the end of a hectic day it’s nice to retreat to the peace and comfort of your chosen accommodation. Six different levels of comfortable and functional accommodation are available throughout the resort, all of which feature air conditioning, satellite TV, safes*, patio or balcony, direct dial phone, hairdryer, and bathroom with shower facilities. Couples on a budget or who plan to spend most of their time outdoors will opt for the compact and cosy supersaver room whilst those looking for slightly more space will choose the resort’s standard room configuration. Upgrade to a Queen or King superior room and enjoy even more space and additional amenities such as mini fridge, coffee maker, ironing sets and larger bathrooms with tubs – ideal for couples on a romantic getaway. One and two bedroomed cottage accommodations are located directly on the stunning white sandy beach – step straight from the veranda onto the beach and into the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea – just the ticket for honeymooners or family groups looking for something special.
