Halcyon Cove by Rex Resorts
Ranked #5 of 16 Hotels in St. John's
Reviewed 6 August 2017

Sixteen family and friends gathered at the Halcyon Cove in July to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. We were in contact with the resort's general manager and the tour desk manager several months before the trip and, thanks to their generous sharing of information and willingness to help make arrangements - both onsite at the resort and for excursions around the island - the trip was practically flawless. The rooms were clean and quite comfortable, both in size and appointments. The staff were friendly and accommodating to all reasonable requests and several of them went well out of their way to make sure we were all enjoying ourselves. Without being asked, the dining staff made special seating arrangements for all of us to eat together at every dinner. Food and drink were plentiful at all meals, with a wide array of choices. (Our group included some vegetarians and vegans and they were also quite satisfied.) The beach was beautiful and there were plenty of lounge chairs (although, admittedly, we were there during the off-season). The free snorkeling and kayaking were nice added features. While this may not be the most elegant resort I have visited, it is clearly one of the best values for the price and one I would easily visit again.

Room Tip: Pool-view rooms on the second floor offer the best vista, and have private balconies instead of pati...

Probably one of the nicest beaches in Antigua. Excellent ocean swimming and pool. Not fancy and low key not need to dress up up. Food is okay and the drinks are plentiful. Staff was very pleasant. I thoroughly enjoyed my week there. There is a women on the beach who gives some of the best neck and shoulder massage ever. Reasonably priced.

This Hotel is Situated on a wonderful beach,all the staff and management were great, typical carribean setting hotel and quaint, food good and plentiful, although repetitious .
Would certainly return for another holiday, as it appears alot of guests do. Only down side our the toilets near the pool and beach, we mentioned that they were used by Locals and Vendors and were left in a mess. Management did get staff to come and clean on a regular basis, but still did not stop Locals using these facilities although there are signs saying private for Guests only. We can see this is a problem because all beaches are for the public, but Sandals, just up from us had guards on all entrances stopping none guests using the facilities.

Room Tip: All rooms looked good with good views, we were fortunate to have a large sea view room

We have just returned from Halcyon Cove after a relaxing and peaceful break on what has to be the loveliest beach in Antigua. Blue seas and clean beach with generous shade and plenty of sun beds. We had read the less complimentary reviews before we went and had concerns. Give this sleepy relaxed hotel a chance if you are looking for an understated, peaceful and friendly atmosphere for a well earned break in the sun. Clean rooms with incredibly comfy bed and pleasant meals. Breakfast was excellent. If I had one criticism it would be the Awarri Restaurant needs a more fans to keep us cool while eating and some slightly larger plastic cups for the delicious cocktails served down by the beach would be nice! We hope to return next year same time ...

Stayed for 10 days returning 14th. The hotel is in a great location with a fantastic beach, and everywhere is clean and tidy, especially the beach, the pool area and beach bar. By the hotel managements own admission the rooms are a bit tired but a refurbishment is planned which will make the hotel even better. Even so the rooms were clean and spacious. On the whole the staff are friendly but some go over and above the call of duty. The Entertainments Manager, Fenton is great fun and happy to take suggestions on board. Orlan the chef is always happy to chat and during my stay learned how I liked my breakfast cooked without me having to ask - very impressive. The same can be said of Heather who knew after only one day how I liked my cocktails and always served them with a fantastic smile - every time! And Errol has the biggest smile on the Island. Always a pleasure to chat with. Also worthy of mentions are Julian and Roxanne. I had a fantastic holiday and would come back in a heartbeat.
