After a delayed flight and an expensive water taxi, I arrived at the resort at 7.45pm. I was greeted by Nai at reception and taken to my garden bure. It was so nice to walk into a small home. It was clean, tidy, plenty of towels and toiletries. Unfortunately the power wasn't on at the points but before breakfast the next day the maintenance man switched the mains on and all was working well. I did have to ask for tea, coffee and sugar but that was all I had to ask for. There was always plenty of water and the maid service knew I drank a lot of water so very nicely left an extra bottle.
I loved my stay, the garden bure was in the first row so it was a short walk to the beach to get wet. I didn't stay at the pool very long as I just wanted to relax alone and read and enjoy the beautiful garden.
The Spa was fantastic. Laite, the girl who massaged me twice was wonderful. I really enjoyed my treatments and I also had a pedicure and manicure. All worth the really inexpensive cost of having someone pampering me.
The food was abundant, fresh and well laid out. There was plenty of variety and I advise you to pay for your meals before you go. I paid for a continental breakfast which consisted of cereal, yohurts, fruit, toast, pastries, tea, coffee and juice - more than enough to eat and I paid for dinner which you could choose from al a carte or the buffet each night. Most nights were theme nights so you got variety.
I was able to swim the cove at high tide and it was safe and enjoyable.
I can't recommend Musket Cove resort highly enough. All the staff were wonderful, they would welcome you at each meal by name and made you feel special. As a solo traveller, it was a perfect place to relax, swim, walk and just enjoy the solitude if that's what you wanted. If you wanted company then you went to the pool area where I did meet some very nice people who included me at dinner for a couple of nights.
I can't wait to go back.
