My wife and I just returned from the Halcyon Cove Rex Resort in Antiqua on January 23, 2015. We arrived in Antigua January 14, 2015 with the expectations of being able to relax and enjoy a resort located on the beach in this small Caribbean Island. This is a much neglected resort. Having read the reviews of the resort I... More

Having arrived back on the 24th and having read the last few reviews I can only say the comments made are mostly true in our opinion although some have said they thought the food was quite good and that the beach was beautiful. We disagree as we thought the food at times was not hot enough and there was very... More

Our 7th stay at a Rex hotel (so we knew roughly what to expect) but this one has sadly disappointed. Also our 2nd stay on Antigua-last time was at the Rex Blue Heron which is now closed and lies as a dilapidated eyesore on beautiful Turners Beach. The hotel is in a shocking state of disrepair. Admittedly there has been... More

We just returned on January 23 2015 from this very tired resort . The only thing that saved our vacation is the fact that the beach is beautiful and the swimming is great !. I am completely disgusted why AIR CANADA vacations would even offer a resort in this state of disrepair . The first concern was at the airport... More

Booked this resort as a last minute vacation. This resort is very dated but in decent condition. The location is excellent - the beach is spectacular in terms of crystal clear water, with little to no pebbles, etc. Its not a very long beach - you can walk from one end to the other in about half an hour. The... More

We have chosen this resort based on the beach, location. We were a little reserved to choose this hotel but seeing many positive reviews here, we decided to give it a shot. The first assigned room was horrible (i saw some insects, the back door could not be closed perfectly letting enough space for mosquitoes to enter, there was no... More

So first off I will say that this is a 3 star hotel and people should take this into consideration when reviewing or contemplating staying here. When we first arrived I will be honest and say that I was a little nervous/disappointed at first glance because it looked a bit dated. However once we got settled in our room, looked... More

If you are after 5* luxury this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a safe, relaxed, friendly, clean, good service, smaller no frills resort, in a great beach location then this is the place for you. Lets give you a few tips and then some plus and minuses of the hotel. Firstly, immigration is slow.... More
