We have just returned this past Sunday from a 1 week stay. We were 3 adults with 4 kids ranging in ages from 4 years, 8 years, 12 years and 17 years. We all had a spectacular time. The resort could use a bit of a make over (especially the rooms), but if room presentation is what you are looking...

While this maybe an older hotel any issues are more than offset by the excellent friendly staff, the good food and the location. Not often I would refer a site to a friend, but I would for this one. Great beach, safe for kids, they have a kids' club as well. If you want luxury go down the beach to...

We stayed at Halcyon Cove for 10 nights having recently returned. We had our 6 year old daughter with us. We stayed in a poolside room which whilst a little dated, was clean, spacious and with a great view. What made the holiday so great were the staff at the hotel, Corlette ran the Kids Club and our daughter absolutely...

This is a brilliant resort...excellent range of meals, food to a very good standard. The staff make the holiday because they are so friendly and helpful. Everyone is always cleaning something all the time. Having the hotel on the beach is great and lunch on the sun terrace is fab. Evening entertainment every night was what you would expect but...

I stayed at the Halcyon Cove for a week in mid March and what an amazing time I had! Arrived at the hotel, and was greeted by smiles all the way, everyone was friendly. My garden view room was pleasant and more importantly very clean. No complaints on that front. The location of the hotel was superb on the beach....

The hotel was a little tired but nothing to worry about and the location was great. We stayed for two weeks with an infant and although we were concerned about the carribean (journey time and climate) we shouldn't have. The staff in the restaurants, bars and house keeping were great and really helpful. Our little one 23 months loved it....

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.

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
