Lovely location and the beach was beautiful. The sea was so blue it looks like its lit up. Staff in the hotel could not have been friendlier and after contracting a virus(not related to the hotel), the staff were more than helpful and checked on my friend and I to make sure we were ok. 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...

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...

Me and a girlfriend stayed here for 2 weeks and had an amazing time. We were pleasantly suprised with the quality of the hotel given its star rating (should be much higher!)

Don't be fooled by the star rating. This property gives excellent value for your money. The staff are the best you will find. Helpful in every way. Check this place out!! You won't be sorry..... Great beach, great location. Everything you could want is right there, or a short walk away.

We have just come back from 2 weeks AI in this wonderful place! We travelled with Virgin who are always top class.

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
