Just returned from 3 weeks wedding & honeymoon and our 2nd visit to Halcyon cove by Rex Resorts Antigua. Too much to say in this review everything was perfect.

I have recently returned from a weeks stay at the Halcyon Cove (19th Feb 12). Ok the hotel could do with a refurb, but it gives it character and we found our room (poolside) to be clean and sufficient for our needs. The hotel is not on a big complex and therefore has a more intimate feel to it. Cannot...

Had to change room because...

We visited this hotel in 2008 and as we are now considering another holiday in Antigua felt a review was appropriate. As a first family Caribbean holiday it was excellent. I can still recall the grin on our 7yr old daughter as we landed at the airport and she helped herself to a fruit punch and danced to the steel...

Agree with others - good value 3* hotel which would benefit from some redecoration. Food quite good, but the Rex in St Lucia had more choice - same for all-inclusive drinks. Location is excellent but the beach did have some seaweed, whereas Sandals next door thoroughly cleaned the beach every morning. The sand flies are Dreadful - take and use...

We spent 2 weeks as guests of the Halcyon Cove Resort and it was everything we expected and more. We had read the Trip Advisor reviews and they were quite accurate. The staff and management did everything they could to ensure we were enjoying ourselves. The rooms were very clean and the food was excellent. However, the lunch was very...

We are just back (yesterday) from the Rex Halcyon Cove in Antigua . Lunch and dinner were pretty good ,breakfast on the other hand was lacking fruit and variety . The beach was messy with weeds & not cleaned too often ,also water is far from crystal clear - you can't see anything unless you swim far from the shore...

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
