If you want to completely relax make new friends and feel like your part of a great big family where people look out for you and want you to have a good time then the Halcyon is the place to go in Antigua.
Like numerous other reviews have said the hotel could do with some money spent on it but I choose not to dwell on this as the cosmetics of the hotel isn't what makes a holiday.
My room although basic was clean and catered for my needs (small fridge, hairdryer, air con) and the view from the balcony, WOW, it still makes me smile just thinking about it.
I met and made some great friends whilst I was there who were kind enough to take me out and show me their favourite parts of the island which I absolutely loved (Half Moon Bay, Darkwood beach, Turners Beach).
Trip wise you can't go wrong with visiting Prickly Pear island owned and run by Miguel and his family a great day out with plenty to drink/eat, fanastic snorkeling and safe swimming
Finally I just want to say thank you to the staff who really make you feel at home and for which no ask is too much. They are what make this Hotel special and long may that continue.
