We visited Antigua for 2 weeks staying first at the cottages and then in an hotel. We loved the cottages - you really appreciate the space available when you move on to a standard hotel bedroom where everything just fits in. A lovely large sittingroom with small and fairly basic kitchenette at one end and . Upstairs a very large... More

Stayed in a two bedrooms cottage with my five kids. It was clean and spacious, only a short walk from Dickenson Bay Beach. The kids also had fun in the pool. I highly recommend since you get good quality for the price for Antigua standards. The kitchen is well equipped with utensils, plates, glasses...The oven is functioning and we never... More

We stayed for 9 days in a 1 bedroom cottage, which was perfect for a family of 4. The cottages are spacious and with attractive décor. Karimah was extremely helpful and dealt with any issues promptly. The only criticism would be the size of the fridge, which was on the small side, especially for self-catering accommodation. Beautiful gardens and general... More

I didn't want to write a review because of my own selfish reason of not wanting too many people loving this place lol, just kidding. The cottages are beautiful and very spacious. Came here with 3 other friends and it was more than enough room. The pool was nice and the beach is literally a 5 min walk (especially when... More

There are a lot of negatives I could trump up. The hot water is limited each day, there are small bugs in the place, the pool water is cold (not heated) and often needs to be cleaned by guests, the driveway is undone etc but I really liked DCP for the price of $180 with tax. Its in a great... More

Thank you very much for your review. We aim to please all our guests but not always possible... As part of our environment initiative the hot water is totally heated from solar panels and we store adequate hot water for each Cottage. We have never advertised the swimming pool as being heated due to the ambient air temperature and have... More

We booked a trip to Antigua at the very last minute so our choices for accommodations were limited. We felt lucky to get 5 nights here; due to the last-minute nature of our booking them, we actually had to move between three separate cottages over 5 nights, which was not a problem at all - we were grateful to get...

As a mid twenties female I stayed here on my own. The apartment was gorgeous and spacious with everything I needed and more. The air-con was amazing and a welcome relief after staying with family for a few days in unbearable heat in a non-air-conditioned house! I really do look forward to staying here again - I'm already planning to... More

I stayed here with my family for 10 days this summer. It was recommended to us by our local friends. The price was right so it was an easy choice. Overall, the place was "just okay" IMO. Apartment style units, two floors, circled around a basic pool. The units were basic, clean, most stuff in working order. After a day... More

Had a wonderful time renting a cottage for 4 nights in May 2015. During the low season most of the cottages seem to be vacant so the place feels very private. Often we get the pool to ourselves. The few neighbours we did have are all friendly and quiet. Bathroom is clean, bed is comfortable, air conditioning is a huge... More

Nice cosy hotel with view over the sea from poolside. Small and nice hotell with good staff. Well furnished rooms. We had a room just by the poolside and it was great. Just a short walk down the road to the fantastic Dickenson bay.
