We stayed for 9 nights from 26th Feb 2014. We were in Antigua for the cricket between WI & Eng. The cottages are well appointed. We had a garden level deck, good size lounge and kitchenette, mezzanine bedroom & bathroom. We weren't self catering but the kitchen was well equipped and we will make better use of it when we...

We booked because it looked like good value for money. We wanted to be close to a beach but intended to do a lot of exploring (for which a car is essential). We deliberately chose to avoid a resort. The cottages far exceeded our expectations. Lovely setting, warm welcome. The rooms were spotless, comfortable and well equipped. We cooked a... More

We had a really lovely 10 days in the cottage and wanted to extend our stay. The cottage is comfortable and adequately, but not really luxuriously, furnished as they put in their advertising brochure. We liked the mezzanine bedroom and the bed was very comfortable. There was air conditioning if required. The staff were extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming and... More

Stayed here for 5 days with my girlfriend recently. Initially the placed looked shabby as we approached but upon entering the compound we found a warm, welcoming place with all amenities and friendly staff. Our cottage was outfitted with all that we needed and we were even provided with an ironing board when we requested. We stayed at peak season... More

I ve stayed 3 times in these cottages over the last few years with a few friends, and our stay could not have been nicer. The staff is very welcoming and the cottages are very charming... There is a nice pool in the middle. Dickenson Bay Beach is about a 15 minute walk down the road from the cottages. You... More

Initial appearance is shabby. I would definitely chose a better hotel or location. Receptionist hours vary and there very little assistance. Though its not far from beach, it's miles from everything else. We had to take a taxi everywhere, and with gas being $6.50 a gallon, taxis are not cheap here. House cleaning/towel and sheet exchange only when requested. No... More

Firstly, we stayed in room 8 - which may have been recently refurbished. I was travelling with my adult son, so we needed separate bedrooms. The nice clean apartment had 2 floors, and we each had a bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, balcony, sea view, TV - so the facilities in the apartment were excellent as far as I am concerned. The... More

I was in Dickenson bay in January. I booked for a week but I run away after 2 days. The rooms were mediocre, I could live with that although for how much I paid it was just a scam! Bathrooms really old, rusty bathtab, dirty, honestly disgusting. I did not have a shower, I couldn't do that. The reception does... More
