I am not that difficult to please. Give me a clean room, with functioning amenities an internet connection (preferably fast) and I am good to go. DBC has everything you need for a quiet, safe, enjoyable vacation. Why write this review? To inform you of how DBC strive for excellence in customer service, which, in my opinion, is how issues...

I stayed here two nights on a business trip. Cottages are sizeable (mine was a duplex) and well maintained, good-size swimming pool and ample car parking space. A daily charge is made for wi-fi (why?) but not excessive. Watch out for the very tame bananquits which can get into your room given half a chance. Not cheap, but I was...

I stayed at the Dickenson Bay Cottages for one night over the xmas break. I actually have family in Antigua hence why it was only one night. As many times as visiting Antigua, I never really ventured out into the hotel scene and was used to seeing the usual Sandals hotel around the island, however, this place is very cozy...
