In the most the staff, and especially the GeneralManager were very helpful and polite, and nothing was to much for them, especially after the general Manager put us in a suite after we had to complain about a few things. The grounds are kept spotless. The pool area is relaxing.the lunches served outside were really good, although the evening meals... More

The Staff are really excellant but are fighting a battle to keep everybody happy. Our... More

The resort is beautiful, the accommodation is good and everything went smoothly. All the staff were incredibly welcoming, helpful and friendly. We liked smiling George carving the roast in the restaurant and the rest of the staff there was very accommodating, always there to serve you. The food was very good, buffets had a similar menu daily and an excellent... More

Having just returned from a relaxing holiday in this beautiful location we feel that other reviewers comments about the hotel rooms being tired are, in our view, understated and the guest rooms are in urgent need of refurbishment. It was also a pity that the Warri Restaurant was not open on more evenings in the week and had a more... More

My husband & I stayed at the Halcyon for a week. We chose this resort largely because of the location, it is close to our niece's home who lives on the island. Other reviews that have stated that this resort is tired...that's very true. It is an older resort that is overdue for an upgrade. We were thrilled with the... More

The location of the hotel is great but overall the hotel is very tired. Some staff, namely Fenton and Mario were very helpful but others did not display the Caribbean charm visitors like. Our first room had not been maintained well with lights either not working or not fitted at all. Unfortunately the team had not picked up on a... More

I'd read the good and bad reviews before our trip to Antigua and so decided to split our 10 days at 2 resorts, Halcyon & Jolly Beach. The best thing about the Halcyon is the location on the stunning beach/warm ocean and the food. We had a room overlooking the pool, it was a good room, lots of space, comfy... More
