The Halcyon sits on one of Antigua's most beautiful beaches on Dickenson's Bay. As a returning guest for more than 20yrs I have much I can offer in a review. First so not to get missed is the customer service. The entire staff at the Halcyon are the friendliest, helpful, most wonderful people you will find in the industry. Many... More

My Wife and I spent 9 glorious nights here earlier this year during mid-March, and had a wonderful time. We stayed in one of the top floor rooms overlooking the pool but could see the sea too, we paid a little extra but it was worth it. Food, service, location of hotel are great, animation team excellent too, with daily... More

Antigua is a beautiful island and its people are friendly. The staff at Halcyon Cove are very friendly and are polite and will do anything to improve your stay. We arrived after a long flight, and the Manager told us not to unpack fully as we would be moving to a better room. True to his word, we were moved... More

The hotel was just okay. Rooms were clean and equipped but were a bit outdated, much like the rest of the property. The common areas were nice. The staff we encountered were very pleasant, although the place seemed a bit understaffed ( it was a holiday weekend). Overall we had a pleasant stay. We found there weren't too many options...

We are travelling to this resort in September from near Toronto, Ontario Canada. Any suggestions would be highly appreciated the do's and don't's! Travel guide/taxi names, coffee places, what types of food were eaten during the stay-- any seafood? Did you visit Barbuda? Etc etc ... Thank you :)

Dear Guest Halcyon Cove is located on the best stretch of beach in Antigua. All guests in the next couple of months will at least be upgraded to a poolside block. Many of those rooms had some renovations done. That includes new beds, air conditioners, painting and grouting. We do offer fresh fish every lunch and dinner. Lobster is out... More

Great beach; friendly and hard-working staff; accommodating; welcoming; responsive and approachable management; not far from St John's and other visits. We had a really enjoyable 12 nights and we are very glad we chose Halcyon Cove Resort. We essentially shared a lovely outlook and beach with the Sandals resort next door.
