Enjoying a pristine picture postcard beach front location, the Starfish Halcyon Cove 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.

Nice location but really needs some updating. Not very clean and rooms on the water were in need of upgrading. Old furniture, walls needed painting, bathrooms stained. Will not go back there. We explored the island and found much more beautiful beaches.

The Starfish Resort Halcyon Cove on Dickenson Bay was a charming quaint resort. My husband Rodney, sister in law Tina and brothrr inlaw Tony stayed in January 15-22 this year 2020..It was the best vacation we spent on the Island compared to the Dominican Republic , Antigua is by far more beautiful and clean. Will never vacation again in the Dominican . Very impressed with your management at that time Ms Marsh and Michael were very good to make sure our needs were met. We were greeted and informed of upcoming events by Front Desk Receptionists Caprese,Debbie and Sean. The Dining area was always clean and inviting. Devon Mgr and Ronis worked very hard to make sure your dietary neefs were met.Orlan the cook prepared delicious meals everyday. Restaurant staff Bernadette , Cecilia and Denise were very courteous,friendly snd prompt taking away dishes and filling drinks. Your houskeeping staff did a beautiful job cleaning especially Veronica The bar staff Errol,Ken,Olan, Helen, Lisa and Winsome did a wonderful job presenting the drinks which were very tasty . Entertainers Fenton and Jesse kept us entertained during the day and evening. The lovely towel girls Ladonna snd Stscy providing fresh towels and info about your Islands and history of it. All of these people did a top notch job making our trip relaxing, enjoyable and very memorable . Please don't change much in your renovations. to take away that beautiful charm and ambiance it is what made your hotel MOST BEAUTIFUL from all the others and youe excellent staff. I give Five Stars for this hotel. Hopefully when the world is free from this Virus we can make more. wonderful. memories.Thank you so very Much.

“Welcome home “ were the first words we heard on our return to Halcyon Cove for our ninth visit. This sentiment was repeated by many of the staff whom we have met over the years. As already commented by several reviewers, this hotel is closing for a major renovation, but I hope that the developers can still keep the charm of this small hotel. The staff are absolutely amazing! I would like to give a special mention to Julian, Roxanne, Ken, Dalston, Fenton, Dave, Errol and Debbie. I know that you are all going through some difficult times ahead, but I also know that you will all be successful, whichever road life takes you down. I am keeping in touch with some of you and I hope to hear how the rest of you are doing. Maybe we will meet again in the future. My thoughts and good wishes go to you all.

Although this resort was dated in its furnishings and could do with some upgrades, we had a fantastic time here. Most of the staff made us feel like family (a special shout out to Malachi, Dalston, Margaretta & Roxanne ... I hope my spelling is ok); the food was excellent; the beach is the best in that area .... drinks and entertainment/activities were great! Everything was so clean (my #1 priority in travelling).
