We have been going to the “Rex” for a long time and still enjoy going back but…….. it is now about time the management in London stopped embarrassing the staff. The investment in the hotel does not match the commitment and effort of a staff who deserve more support. In the West Indies there is a virus that is suspected... More

There was so much wrong with this resort, I don't know how they could even call it a resort.it was so bad it was laughable. I would not recommend it but on the bright side the people that work there were wonderful and worked very hard. It seems like this resort needs a huge influx of money to make it... More

Dear Brenda, Sorry to hear that our resort is not up to your expectation and thank you for the kind remarks about our staff. We are in process of renovating the resort especially after the Hurricane that took place in October resulted in severe damages. I hope these issues beyond our control will not deter from coming and visit us... More

Visited as beach day visitors at $40 US each. Great value inc loungers, umbrella, all drinks and lunch. Beach good but a lot of seaweed in water. Self serve lunch taken in beachside dedicated seating area - good quality, plenty of choice. Worth a visit.

Spent 2 weeks here in late November. The staff and the beach make the hotel. We had a deluxe sea view room which was a good size, good aircon and kept clean by the maid. The bar staff in particular Heather and Orlando were great at their jobs. The other guests at the hotel mixed well and also led to... More

The food was good but wasn't replenished when it run out. BBQ night they ran out of jacket potatoes. This was 8pm. When we asked they said they were... More

Do not go to this hotel! I spent 3 nights at Halcyon Cove in Antigua for a conference. After waiting an hour for my room to be ready it was disturbing to be taken to a very old dated dusty room. Every day we were treated to brown smelly water coming from the pipes. Millions of mosquitoes were let into... More

I do not normally leave reviews as I know they are personal & subjective, but I felt the need to do so for this hotel so as to give a true and frank picture of this place where people can make a choice based on facts. As you pull up to this property you immediately get a sense of what... More
