I stayed at the Halcyon Cove by Rex Resorts, at the beginning of July for a week. The accommodation, food and service were very good. You add the beautiful beach and you have the best recipe for the perfect vacation. We also have a few excursions, that was fairly priced. Fenton and his animation team, kept us busy throughout.

I stayed at this hotel for a Conference. First off I would say that the staff overall were very friendly. However, this "resort" was very dated. My first grievance would be that the rooms located above ground level have NO elevator...you have to climb several flights of stairs. No one offered to take my bags to my room...& with a... More

We booked a vacation to Antigua through a travel club, which we had several choices of hotels to stay at. We decided to stay at the Halcyon Cove by Rex Resorts, and what a great decision it was.

We booked last minute as the price was great,but we were not sure if we were doing the right thing after reading some review. Boy were we happy we did go there. It is a small, older hotel needing a bit of TLC but we loved it. The lobby staff were helpful as we had to change our room from... More

I gave a 4 star rating because the resort was above our expectations. The staff were very friendly and made our stay so enjoyable.

This was our 11th visit to Antigua and Halcyon Cove was not our original choice as our original hotel reservation and the next were both cancelled due to closures, so we arrived at Halcyon Cove for a 3 week stay with some trepidation.

For a relaxing all inclusive holiday with a fabulous beach - you cannot beat the Rex Halcyon Cove. Another big plus is the staff, they are great, Roxanne in the restaurant and Fenton the Entertainment Supervisor deserve a special mention. Evening entertainment is low key but you will get steel band and the Fire Man! Food very good, afternoon tea... More
