This hotel is beautifully situated on the fabulous sandy beach of Dickenson bay. For a 3 star resort the accomodation was of a good standard (we had a poolside room which I think are the best to go for). All inclusive worked very well, drinks were of a good standard and the wine was perfectly drinkable. We dined 4 nights...

The Halcyon Cove provided a perfect two week holiday for my sister and myself. The rooms were quiet and excellent for sleeping, an important consideration for us, and all seem to be accessible to the beach in swimming costume and bare feet. Both our rooms had a view of the sea and, with their balconies, were pleasant places to be...

Bear in mind the Halcyon Cove Resort is a three star resort as indicated. However, there are many attributes to this small resort that must be mentioned. The food, though not a large variety, is excellent with a different venue each evening. The omelettes, prepared by Colin, are the best. He takes just that little extra care in preparation. We...

I had to write a list on the back of the welcome letter just get the room operating. I am a easy going chap and am willing to give people a chance. I was rewarded with a Quarter Bottle of local Rum and a plate of fruit. BUT - that was just the start of the incompetence. The early morning...

We were at Halcyon Cove for a week in January 2012. The resort has a great location at the north end of Dickenson Bay. The physical size of the resort is good, not the sprawling size of some resorts like the Sandals property next door. The landscaping is well maintained, the pool was an adequate size and clean, the beach...

It is very worth paying for an upgraded room, we had poolside rooms and they were lovely. I felt that the rooms needed some work on them but they were spotlessly clean. The staff were nearly all cheerful, helpful and fun, which is what you want on your holiday! You often were asked everything was ok and if it wasn't...

Just returned from this hotel, absolutely wonderful. This is the second time that I have been to this hotel and I feel that it has got even better.

I am guessing the complainers are from North America and this hotel would be 2-3 Star in the USA or Canada. Dinner and dessert were, by far, the best meal offered ..... just like Mom would make.

After reading many reviews, some very scary and some very good, we decided to take the plunge and book this hotel anyway and give it a try. Pretty good decision on our part. Yes the hotel is a bit dated, but when you know that going in, you know to expect that. The hotel was very clean & well kept,...
