We have just returned after 11 nights at Halcyon Cove. I can't begin to tell you what a fantastic holiday we had. On arrival we were greeted with cold fresh fruit cocktail and cold flannels (lovely touch) and those 2 magic words, "Room Upgrade" and when I asked what we'd done to deserve that the receptionist just smiled and said...

We booked a last minute vacation to this resort the price was excellent. We had booked a garden room and were upgraded for free to poolside room 321, which is right next to the beach with excellent views. The room was basic but very clean. The main issue with the room was the shower, which kept leaking on the floor...

When we arrived we were welcomed with a glass of fruit punch - and really big smiles from the hotel reception staff. We had booked what BA holidays called a "Supersaver" room. We found the room was perfectly fine with a good sized balcony and all the facilities you could want. Maybe a ceiling fan (which some other rooms had)...

As the manager said at his cocktail party, "this may not be a 5 Star hotel but the service is 5 Star" - this we all agreed with. The staff are lovely which helps make your holiday. The food was very good and the restaurant very charming and did not have a 'canteen' atmosphere like some hotels. This hotel is...

This is the second time I have stayed at this resort and the staff makes every effort to make you feel like family. Both my son and I have used The Watersports on our trip to Antigua. My son was a new diver and Leron took very good care of him to insure his safety. He was even given a...

Stayed at the Rex for only one night as we had to catch a liat flight to our final destination. It took 3 hours for us to check in as rooms were not ready. When I arrived at my room the staff was there trying to fix the AC. Room was dirty and I was tired and all I wanted...

We have just returned this past Sunday from a 1 week stay. We were 3 adults with 4 kids ranging in ages from 4 years, 8 years, 12 years and 17 years. We all had a spectacular time. The resort could use a bit of a make over (especially the rooms), but if room presentation is what you are looking...

While this maybe an older hotel any issues are more than offset by the excellent friendly staff, the good food and the location. Not often I would refer a site to a friend, but I would for this one. Great beach, safe for kids, they have a kids' club as well. If you want luxury go down the beach to...

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.

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
