My wife and I spent one week here from Feb. 12th.-19th. It was our first time staying at this resort and my first time visiting Antigua. I will restrict my comments to the resort only, the food, service and the amenities. Yes this is an old resort, but I found it clean and relatively well-maintained. The room was fine, we...

This hotel is on a fantastic beach and has friendly staff (apart from a few on reception!) who never stop working and can never do enough to please. Kiendelle never seemed to sleep! Always there at 6:30 am ready with a cup of tea for the early risers. Fenton and Dave were great company.Roxanne and all her restaurant staff were...

Overall: Yes, it's run down, but it's cheap, clean, has an amazing beach and incredibly delicious food. Need I say more? We've been travelling down South in the winters for nearly 15 years now. Generally, each year we try a different country and a different resort. We used to visit the more expensive resorts but after the years (we sound...

Antigua is beautiful! This resort in on an amazing beach with calm water, white sand and lots of sunshine! The service is good, the food was good, the rooms were clean, and the drinks were good. Overall, the resort is a bit dated and the beach furniture needs to be updated, but none of that takes away from the location...

Spent the wk of Feb 9-16, 2017. Read the reviews so kind of knew what to expect having been to Antigua a number of times over the years staying at different resorts. Tired rooms and decor. Limited variety at buffet meals. Low level entertainment. All of which existed, however, what bothered me the most. 1) The hotel provides day passes...

There are some ridiculous criticisms of this hotel on Tripadvisor including noisy cicadas, mosquitoes, flies and sea grass - all of these will be found everywhere in the Caribbean and if you can't cope with them, then don't visit the region. It is, however, fair to say that the fabric of the hotel has seen better days and can best...

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
