Whilst this hotel needs refurbishment, the staff, from the reception (including Aretha) the restaurant and some of the pool bar staff were genuinely pleasant and cheerful. I was there with my husband as part of a cricket tour package and we throughly enjoyed ourselves. The rooms did need a little more TLC but the bed was comfortable and the air...

We read plenty of reviews prior to travelling to the Halcyon Cove and for the most part our opinion was that some people complain about the littlest issue without taking into account the price they are paying. We traveled as a family with 3 teenage kids. It seems that we must have lucked out in our rooms: we got a...

Upon arrival we found that there was no fridge in our room (although there was an ice bucket), no kettle (although there were tea bags, sugar etc.) but to be fair when requested they were promptly delivered. Problems with intermittent hot water for showers or shaving. Meals - very good in the Arawak Terrace, not so good at the Beach...

My husband, myself and 2 friends recently spent 6 days at this resort. We were all disappointed on first entering our rooms. They were both the basic standard rooms and looked as if they had not been refurbished since the 1970's! Our room had no centre light just a lamp between the beds -- a hole in the ceiling where...

This was our first time to Antigua. My husband and myself, as well as another couple. I cannot express enough how kind the people of the resort were.

This is the 3rd visit of our groups to the Halcyon Cove and for the most part our group enjoyed the stay. As with so many places in this standard, there is much that could be done to improve rooms in terms decor and fittings, but for the most part they are large and do the job for which they...

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
