Good boutique hotel on an amazing beach! Travelled back in July 2012; we had 3 generations of our family together. The rooms were basic, sometimes the air conditioning did not work, but the maintenance man sorted it out. Access to the room was straight off the beach or pool, which was excellent for us! Breakfast and dinner was served in... More

We visited halcyon cove with my cousin and her kids. We were a total of 3 adults and 4 kids ranging in age from 5 years to 17 years. The complex itself is a little tired, but located on the best darn beach on the island and right next to Sandals (without the sandals price). We rented a jet ski... More

I was there for 3 weeks in January. The place needs a bit of tlc, but was clean and comfortable. The staff were very helpful, and polite, nothing was too much trouble for them. Food was OK, but boring and repetitive,with no genuine local dishes, although there was plenty of choice, so you could usually find something to eat. Meals... More

Loved my stay at this hotel. Its a pretty standard looking hotel (MOTEL ) but the staff the location and the price makes it one of the best choices on the island. THE Drinks where very good , they use quality alcohol- they can even make you a dirty dry martini ! You will always find something to eat at... More

We stayed for 2 weeks in january and had a lovely time. The hotel is dated and could do with a refresh but your in Antigua chill and enjoy yourself. I think it's an ongoing project and the reasonable price reflects this. If you want 5 stars head next door. Although I would prefer the friendly halcyon any day. The... More

Visited it for a week of the March break, because we had found a good last min. deal. The hotel is very modest, but our Rm. was liveable, like a motel, nothing but a bed, small bed side tables, an old desk, a TV, a small bench or a loveseat, plastic cheapest possible white chair on a tiny triangular balcony,...

We have stayed at The Halcyon Cove four times which makes it a home from home. If you like a pristine hotel with lots going on and lots of facilities and five star, go somewhere else. If you like a bit scruffy, lovely staff, peaceful days and a good beach stay here. The rooms have been improved each year, make... More

Unlike fine wine, a hotel doesn't necessarily improve with age. This property needs renovation, desperately. My room had hot water in the sink, but not the shower; sporadic internet; and tiles were coming out of the floor in front of my room. Food was average. The only thing that made this place remotely bearable was the outstanding staff; very warm... More

If you're coming here for the beach, then you're in good shape, as long as you don't plan to spend any time in your room. The rooms and the rest of the facilities are rundown and showing their age. Bathrooms have been updated recently but the water pressure is very poor. And there's little to no hot water. The food... More

Strong 3.5 star for that small resort located just next to the Sandals. Very nice beach. Great location on the Dickinson Bay, 20 min to Airport, close to St. John's. We stayed with my wife at that resort for one week end of May. Was a good deal for an upgraded room with the pool view, could see the sea... More
