Whilst this is not a flashy 5 star hotel it is still simply wonderful. Somehow the simplicity of the place is all part it's charm. Everything works and clean and it good state of repair. In some cases it's not that new and perhaps could be updated soon. However the staff were simply the nicest, kindest, most charming I've come... More

Dickenson Bay is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever visited. Sunsets on the Warri pier is just perfect with the Cocktail in hand. What sets Halcyon apart is the warmth and friendlyness of the staff. Nothing is ever too much trouble. Special thanks to Riaan who is the GM, always ready to make sure you have everything... More

My first stay at Halycon Cove in Antigua & Barbuda was October 2011 and the experience was so awesome that ever since when I go to Antigua - it is there that I stay. So it goes without saying that when I was there from July 11 -14, 2016 for the UWI Global Giving Week that I chose Halycon. When... More

With all the efforts put out by the generous staff, the owners should be ashamed of tagging this hotel a Rex Halcyon resort. They have treated the hotel as a distant cousin that should be shunned. The property lies on one of the most beautiful beaches but despite this no care has been taken to upgrade the property from the... More

We had a very good time at this hotel. The staff were unforgettable with their welcoming charm. The beach was beyond words. The breakfast and lunch was really enjoyable with different locations for these so that you would not get tired of eating in the same place all the time. The hotel does need some fixing up in certain areas... More

My husband and I have not been on vacation together since 2009. Antigua was our first choice, combining this visit with relaxation plus visit with family. Halcyon was an excellent choice. Despite the fact that it was off-season, the hotel and staff did not skip a beat. The staff were courteous and went out of their way to make this... More

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
