Spent 2 nights here and it was fairly average, staff were great but building was a little tired, close to beach and many other amenities and cheap if you call direct, so don't book through Internet, it will cost you 20% more...

I felt you got the same beach and view as Sandals resort for a fraction of the cost. Food was of very good quality. Green sunset cruise was amazing and we...

I know this is a place for couples and families so I'm not the right demographic. I stated here for two nights in business so had no time for the resort's more fun aspects. This review is about the fundamentals. Firstly, any claim on wifi is overblown; it's only available in the reception area and is incredibly slow. More importantly,...

My Wife and I traveled Nov. 13th. We chose the Rex Halcyon on price and reviews. This was an Anniversary gift to each other 33yrs. The hotel is easy access from the airport, which is very new and modern. Airport clearance was swift and efficient. The shuttle to the hotels all seem relatively new and comfortable. Check in was OK,...

All rooms had A/C hair dryer, iron. The accommodation is all two stories.We stayed in room 231 which was right by the pool on the ground level and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Enjoying a pristine picture postcard beach front location, the Halcyon Cove by rex resorts offers the very essence of a perfect Caribbean setting. Beautiful glistening waters gently lap at the palm-fringed white sands of Dickenson Bay where guests can recline beneath the palm-frond parasols or exert some energy on a variety of water sports. International buffet breakfast and dinner cuisine is served at the Arawak Terrace restaurant or treat yourself at the Warri Pier a-la-carte restaurant featuring speciality grills and lobster in its unique setting over the sea. ... more   less
