The positives heavily out weigh the negatives. Our experience has been one of: updated room (340), no mosquito problem, beautiful beach, good food & friendly staff. We booked a second floor room with pool and sea view. You get a great sunset view from the balcony. Air con was effective. We had heard there were issues with mosquitoes so used...

Stayed for 2 weeks in March. The improvements to the hotel are coming on slowly. We had a lovely room overlooking the pool. We were there at the same time as the 'Barmy Army' (cricket followers), so it was a bit busy for a few days, lots of good humour. The staff were, as always, great. Even though they were...

So after reading the mixed reviews I decided that no matter what I was darn well going to enjoy my week away! And I really enjoyed it! Yes, the hotel is a little dated and needs a little TLC but if you want luxury pay an arm and a leg and stay at the Sandals next door. We had booked...

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.

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
