The Starfish Jolly Beach Resort is spread out over 40 acres of tropical splendour, fronted by a white sandy beach which stretches for a mile along the Antiguan coastline. The resort has a wide array of attractions and activities so that guests can spend all their holiday here if they choose to.

On the beach there are several water sports to try. Among them are sailing Hobi-cats, windsurfing, snorkelling and kayaking. Experienced staff are on hand to guide those who need help with sailing and windsurfing. The beach is also home to many organised games such as volleyball, cricket and football.

If you prefer freshwater to salt, the resort offers a choice of two pools. Water polo and volleyball are played at the Fantasy Pool, so if you’re looking for a quiet dip and a place to lounge afterwards The Quiet Pool will probably fit the bill.

Away from the water, guests can enjoy a game of tennis at one of the four courts. They are lit at night so the fun can continue long after dark.

There is a play room, "Kidz Club" and "Teens Club" for children and young teens which is available to all young guests at the resort.

If you’re worn out from all the activity on the beach or the swimming pools, the hotel can offer the relaxation and indulgence of a range of spa treatments at the Palms Wellness Centre. As well as massage and facials, there is also a beauty salon in which to pamper yourself further. Located here is the resort’s fitness centre which is fully-equipped with cardio and strength training gear
