We had a Beach Front Bure which was clean and tidy. It had fans and air conditioning, a good size fridge, toaster, cutlery, glasses, kettle, towels and beach towels. We were welcomed with a cold flannel and a coconut drink. We were asked for our passports and obligated to sign a waiver releasing the resort from anything that may happen to us through their fault or ours. Water; we were told was unsafe to drink and to drink only bottled water. At dinner that evening we had wine and as we like to have water as well we were given a glass each not knowing it was tap water and my wife felt nauseous most of the night. Next night at dinner when we ordered water we were told it was unsafe to drink and they suggested bottled water, which they promptly put on the bill, suggesting we bring water from our room in future, Free internet, if you can ever get on. It was down on the second day and intermittent after that. Free non-motorised sport. Sail boats $15FJ per hour and bicycles $30FJ per day, that is to say $120FJ per day for a family of four. Value for money I would question and think twice about returning
We recently stayed at Musket Cove Island Resort for my birthday. We found the staff to be exceptionally friendly and helpful. The weather whilst very warm and humid for us, it was certainly a lovely change from the snow we’d left behind in Tasmania. I would recommend wearing loose fitting clothing - jeans would definitely be out of the equation. The food was varied and well prepared although we had been warned that the cost of both food and alcohol could be high which in most cases it was. Also all places charged up to 3.5% credit card fee on all cards including debit and currency cards. Fiji was on our bucket list and we were glad to have visited but unlikely to go again.
Had a 12 night stay in beach front Bure which was very comfortable for 3 adults. Staff very welcoming and helpful. Food at Dick's Place was of a good quality for an island resort - fresh food from the organic garden was a plus. While the resort fronts tidal flats, there is always a high tide for water sports at some time of the day.
We had an amazing family holiday during musket cove regatta week here! Beautiful snorkelling, amazing friendly staff and lots of great memories and friends made! Definitely be back for a real Fijian holiday! Thanks to all the staff for being so helpful and welcoming!
Within minutes of arriving in Fiji, you start to think that locals with guitars should welcome you at every airport (except perhaps Seattle...). The warmth of the welcome and the genuine desire to help becomes very apparent. Within minutes of arriving in Musket Cove, you feel that the airport is trying too hard. Your entire body, mind and soul relaxes as the very friendly and cheerful staff welcome you off the Malolo Cat. Besides eagerly checking out the picture perfect tropical scenery, you start to greet people you've never met with a friendly "Bula", and know that this was a great decision to come here. We stayed in an island Burre with some friends and had travelled to attend a friend's daughter's wedding. The resort was small enough to catch up with everyone easily, but large enough to have time to yourself. The drinks were well priced, and I'd recommend booking for the pig on a spit meal on Thursdays. True, the slabs of crackling may not be great for my heart, but so what? You're on holiday, thousands of miles from the everyday monotony. The breakfast was thrown in with the rate, and it was more than enough to help you through the day. Both the chef and Seini seemed to be on station whenever I went near the place, and they were great, a true testament to the care and attention that the resort with their guests to have. The wedding was outstanding, with native dancers, conch shells being blown, fire thrown around, and two people being in love in the midst of it all. The food, setting and weather was great, the staff (as always!) helpful, and everyone had a great time. There were activities to be indulged in, and despite my reticence (wanting to stay on a deck-chair, drink wine and read a book), the sandbar snorkelling was marvellous. A hint for those going - take some bread and the fish will swarm around you. The only real complaint I had was that the volleyball court, although on the beach, has some serious compacted sand beneath the surface. If you took an energetic role in the game (and of course you do!), those scraped knees are painful. A badge of honour, sure, but painful. All in all, a great time, cleansing all care away, and one that will have to be done again, sooner rather than later. Oh, one last tip for the traveller - the light beer doesn't refer to the alcohol content, just the calories. Be careful! :)
Anchored off the resort. Just spent several hours there. Given free membership to the musket cove yacht club which entitled us to half off the ferry ride (paid $40 Fiji instead of $80, which included a courtesy shuttle to the airport) to port denarau because two of us in our group had to fly out of nadi that night. Had free showers. Had a laundry room, but we didn't need it. Pretty white sand beach. Nice to walk around and then lunch by the pool. The service at the restaurant was slow. Food just ok. Staff was not quite as friendly as on other islands.
We spent a week here and the resort was great in most fronts. We had the usual lovely Fiji welcoming and our room was clean and comfortable with flowers placed in the room. Breakfast was great with a good selection of local and fresh food or a hearty cooked breakfast was offered too. Our evening meals were ok and a couple of good buffet nights were on offer but quite expensive for what they were. Unfortunately 2 of us who had fish one night fell ill and we had to stand our ground to get a refund which was not pleasant when leaving. Drinks and food can add up so expect to have a substantial bill at the end of your stay. The pool was nice with a bar and restaurant close by. The other cafe in the resort was a lot more reasonable but nowhere near the standard of the main restaurant which we went to most lunchtimes and evenings. The entertainment was as you would expect with local live music most nights. The snorkelling trips were fantastic and something we will never forget. The island tours were also good and well worth the money. There was also a small bar at the end of the spit which was fun but fairly quite with seating overlooking the water. The one thing we found most disappointing was the beach. The shallow waters were fairly muddy which was a real let down. All in all was a great stay but don't think we will return. We visited much nicer islands on day trips. Bit expensive for what it was and you will need to double you hotel costs with food, drinks and trips.
Our 2 days stay at Musket Cove Island resort was fantastic. The staff were welcoming, friendly & helpful. We enjoyed the daily activities at the resort. The kids club option was fantastic for our boy to mingle with other children & they did interesting activities. Thanks to Kesa for organizing fun-filled activities for the kids & teaching us basket weaving. The rooms & facilities were good for island accommodation. It's a very peaceful island for those who want to relax but they also offer activities (like snorkeling, kayaking) for people who want to explore the oceans. The resort has its own organic farm which was really good to explore & see that the food at the restaurant is prepared with organic produce. As we are vegetarians, the chefs at the restaurant catered for us. There is also a supermarket on the resort which is handy just in case you want to buy something.
My wife and I arrived here for our trip of a lifetime to Fiji only to be met with an adjoining airfield and a construction site. The airfield noise was bad some days and ok the next, but the construction was constant. I complained but nothing was done about it. I followed up with the resort explianig that this was my one trip to Fiji and it was not tranquil as described and i was offered 3 free nights stay. I advised that i live in the UK and would be unliley to ever get to Fiji again but this was ignored.
We stayed here for a week and it was fantastic and we will definitely go back. We ate at the restaurant by the pool everyday and the food was exceptional. Our daughter spent hours in the pool each day, we rented bikes and enjoyed the free activities such as paddle boarding and snorkeling tours. Highly recommend this place, expensive but worth it if you just want to chill out and relax.
