We returned recently from a 10 day stay in a Garden room close to the pool, beach and bar. Room was a very good size with air-con and small fridge. Kettle instead of coffee percolator to heat hot water would have been the only improvement.
It is true that some aspects of the hotel are tired but hotels are working buildings and things do wear out or require maintenance but our experience was that this did not affect our stay. A couple of very minor maintenance issues were resolved promptly and efficiently.
The room was cleaned properly each day.
Without exception, the staff were friendly and helpful; it might be due to their training but it still came across as a genuine interest in communicating with the guests.
Some of the facilities (Reception Bar and Warri Pier) were either not open or in full use, presumably due to it being before the busy season.
The evening entertainment at the beach bar was generally good.
All in all a very good holiday experience. It's not been our practice to return to holiday locations (whether good, bad or indifferent) simply because we like to find new places to visit, so a return to Halcyon Cove is unlikely to happen. But it's a place well worth visiting.
