We thoroughly enjoyed our 7 day stay at Musket Cove. The atmosphere was friendly but the service was still excellent and we felt thoroughly looked after. Our room was very well appointed with everything we needed and we loved looking out at the water everyday. We enjoyed the daily snorkling trips - the reef and fish were fantastic. We had meals and drinks at Dick’s, Trader Cafe and the yacht club and loved them all. We also liked having the option to shop at the Trader store and ordering a BBQ pack and having our own BBQ - the best reef fish I have eaten! Breakfast each day by the water was a great way to start the day and had a great selection. We loved every part of our stay including walking around the island and enjoying the amazing views. We wished we did not have to leave as we felt so looked after and the location was so amazing.
The property was well looked after and staff were continually gardening and tidying. Room was in a great position and size. We would suggest to have a phone, & a do not disturb sign available to be able to use.(housekeeping come at different times so hard to relax and have a nap) Restaurant was in a nice setting around the pool and had fantastic food, as did the cafe at the marina. Musket cove grow lots of fruit and veggies themselves and the eggs are also fresh from their farm, so quality food is a result! The Staff were all friendly. It was a shame the tide took the beach away a lot of the time, but you could walk elsewhere for example to plantation resort. We travelled when it was supposed to be the best weather, but unfortunately got a very mixed bag of windy, cloudy, rain and sun. It wasn’t postcard perfect but you can’t predict the weather.
A very laid back, calm resort without the large holiday crowds (in mid September). Garden bures are a bit dated but still lovely. Staff friendly and accommodating. Dining at Dicks was great, clean and good value. Would stay again but would likely choose a beach bure or villa instead.
