We went to ANU in late October - early November, 2002 & 2003.

In 2002 it was a partial washout.

In 2003 it was total washout. Mudslides closed the road to get into the St. James' Club.

We gave up trying October ever since.

You never know.

Sorry, but these were our experiences at that time of year.

To answer your question about Halcyon, it is a decent resort, leaning towards the budget side. It is located on one of the most popular beaches on the island, although if you're coming in October there should not be too much of a crowd. There are several restaurants/bars in the area, along with a casino.

If you're looking for an "upscale" experience then this is NOT for you. If you are looking for a decently priced resort, then Halcyon Cove gives a great deal in terms of value for money.

With regards to the weather, it's almost impossible to say! October is in the "rainy season" but that does not mean torrential downpour in Antigua. Usually (unless there is a tropical system in the area) showers are brief, lasting only 10-15 minutes. It will be much rainier if there is a tropical depression/storm in the area, which can lead to rain and overcast conditions for a few days. However, there really is no way to tell whether or not you'll have brilliant sunshine or not in October!

Me and my bf went to Halcyon late October/early November and the weather was perfect. There was a few days where it rained but it only rained for like 5mins and then went back to being sunny. We also found that the few days it looked a bit dull when we were back at the hotel the weather was so much better at Darkwood Beach.

The staff at Halcyon are amazing, they really make the hotel.
