Overall: Yes, it's run down, but it's cheap, clean, has an amazing beach and incredibly delicious food. Need I say more? We've been travelling down South in the winters for nearly 15 years now. Generally, each year we try a different country and a different resort. We used to visit the more expensive resorts but after the years (we sound...

My husband and I have just returned from a 12 night stay. We had read some negative reviews before we travelled so wasn't sure what to expect. If you looking for a hotel with a suburb location, helpful and friendly staff and lovely food his hotel is perfect! Ok the décor could do with up dating but this adds to...

Antigua is beautiful! This resort in on an amazing beach with calm water, white sand and lots of sunshine! The service is good, the food was good, the rooms were clean, and the drinks were good. Overall, the resort is a bit dated and the beach furniture needs to be updated, but none of that takes away from the location...

Spent the wk of Feb 9-16, 2017. Read the reviews so kind of knew what to expect having been to Antigua a number of times over the years staying at different resorts. Tired rooms and decor. Limited variety at buffet meals. Low level entertainment. All of which existed, however, what bothered me the most. 1) The hotel provides day passes...

There are some ridiculous criticisms of this hotel on Tripadvisor including noisy cicadas, mosquitoes, flies and sea grass - all of these will be found everywhere in the Caribbean and if you can't cope with them, then don't visit the region. It is, however, fair to say that the fabric of the hotel has seen better days and can best...

Had an unexpected pleasure to stay at the Halcyon Cove in August 2016 en route to London from Grenada. The staff are amazing! Welcoming and helpful. The beach that the hotel is set on is simply stunning clear water. I come from Grenada so I know a lot about beautiful beaches. The range of food was wide and varied everyday...

Last year I was flying to Dominica and due to a delay, British Airways put me in the Halcyon Cove. Gorgeous hotel - one of the best hotel's I've ever stayed in. The staff were friendly and ensured I had a comfortable stay. I loved the buffet dinner, where there was a great range of different foods. (Something for everyone.)...

First time at the Rex in Antigua. Rooms were not as well maintained as other resorts in the chain. Tiling problems in the bathroom could be repaired. There is also no way to prevent mosquitoes in the room while sleeping. The beach was great but loungers were all taken by 8:00am. A long beach shared with Sandals was good for...

We had a very enjoyable stay here in February 2017, and would definitely return again. As other reviewers have noted, Halycon Cove is somewhat "tired", but the superb location on one of Antigua's best beaches, the fantastic welcoming and helpful staff, and great entertainment, make this one of the best packages you will find anywhere. Everything is included. You can...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Enjoying a pristine picture postcard beach front location, the Halcyon Cove by rex resorts offers the very essence of a perfect Caribbean setting. Beautiful glistening waters gently lap at the palm-fringed white sands of Dickenson Bay where guests can recline beneath the palm-frond parasols or exert some energy on a variety of water sports. International buffet breakfast and dinner cuisine is served at the Arawak Terrace restaurant or treat yourself at the Warri Pier a-la-carte restaurant featuring speciality grills and lobster in its unique setting over the sea. ... more   less
