I'll start with check-in. We arrived at 7:30PM since our flight in was late. If you miss the 5:30 ferry, you have to pay $300 USD for a transfer. Since we arrived as a sole couple, check-in should have been quick and easy, but it was not. We waited over 30 minutes for our room and were left sitting in...

Bula Not a nice way to start your visit. What happened should not have. My sincere apologies. Fiji being what it is, internet can be spotty. We are continually looking for ways to upgrade. FYI Musket has the highest bandwidth in the islands. Re food pricing and quality. Buying the best produce doesn't come cheap. And 25% tax on top...

We spent 5 nights here in a 2 bdrm garden villa. The villa was an old colonial style with shutters on all the windows and the grounds are very spacious. The down side to this was the noisy gardening/lawn mowing each day which for us was exactly when our baby was trying to nap each afternoon! There are no TV...

It's been 4 years since we last visited Musket Cove and it's nice to know that it's mostly unchanged. Due to a fire the offices and shop had been rebuilt and the layout is much better. Musket caters for Adults which is what we like about the resort and I hope it stays that way although this time round there...

Stayed at Armstrong villas, a few villas in one area with deck over water and swimming pool at back door - much better than having to go to the large swimming pool and often we were the only ones in the pool at our back door.

We recently had a family holiday at Musket Cove - 8 of us ranging in age from 25 to 90 - celebrating my mother's 90th birthday. From the moment we arrived the staff made her feel special.

My first visit to Musket Cove and we stayed there at the same time as the Fiji Sailing Regatta, a busy event of which Musket Cove is the hub.
