It is very diappointing stay. The building is rundown. It is only one elecrical outlet available for the whole room.The tap water is not drinkable and appear dirty. Some alcoholic drink is free but for a bottle of water you have to pay US$3.00 per bottle. You have to use the bottle water to brush your teeth to be safe.... More

Dear Budi S Thank you for taking the time to share your guest experience with us. We are very dissapointed that we did not meet your expectations, it is certainly not our standard.

We have recently returned from our first stay in the Caribbean at the Halcyon Cove Hotel, Dickinson Bay. We were delighted to find our room overlooked the pool and the sea beyond and was quite large and comfortable. The beach was a few steps away and was gloriously uncrowded. The sea was amazingly warm and clear and perfectly safe every... More

We stayed at the Halcyon for a week, on an all inclusive basis. The Hotel is a bit dated but fine. The rooms were large and cleaned every day. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was wonderful and it was good that they have different restaurants for the meals. The best was the pier for evening meals... More

We recently stay at the Halcyon Cove Hotel. 10/10 for the great staff. You can see they enjoy their job. Always willing to go the extra mile with a smile. The rooms is very neat. We love the beautiful beach. The watersport is so enjoyable. The seafood at the Warri Pier is to die for.

Staff was very fun & friendly. Food was okay but drinks by the beach bar all day long was the best part!!!! The beach is beautiful. Cheapest jet ski's we saw on the island. Room and tv need a little updating but my family and I enjoyed our stay.
