We had a fantastic time, so glad we chose this place for our honeymoon. The hotel is located on the best side of this particular beach. The staff is friendly and funny , very helpful as well . Don't expect a 5 star room in a 3 star hotel. We got a sea view room , it was more like...

Excellent location, it's right on the beach, 3star hotel but all the staff were definitely 5 star, especially Dave ,Jesse and Fenton who were the entertainment team and made our holiday very memorable. The food was decent and we were not disappointed. We had a couple of small issues with our room but we're resolved very promptly. We would definitely...

Our third visit to the Halycon so by now we're fairly well acquainted with what's on offer. A great beach,average to okay rooms,plenty of drinks and at a reasonable-ish price although it's clear the Halcyon is becoming a little more optimistic about its pricing compared to what they're offering in return. The food seems to have improved since our last...

Great beach side location, the hotel is in well run with very good helpful staff. It would probably benefit from some refurbishment. Aqua aerobics great fun would recommend you get off your lounger and join in! A charming mid price hotel.

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...

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
