I had to write a list on the back of the welcome letter just get the room operating. I am a easy going chap and am willing to give people a chance. I was rewarded with a Quarter Bottle of local Rum and a plate of fruit. BUT - that was just the start of the incompetence. The early morning... More

We were at Halcyon Cove for a week in January 2012. The resort has a great location at the north end of Dickenson Bay. The physical size of the resort is good, not the sprawling size of some resorts like the Sandals property next door. The landscaping is well maintained, the pool was an adequate size and clean, the beach... More

It is very worth paying for an upgraded room, we had poolside rooms and they were lovely. I felt that the rooms needed some work on them but they were spotlessly clean. The staff were nearly all cheerful, helpful and fun, which is what you want on your holiday! You often were asked everything was ok and if it wasn't... More

I am guessing the complainers are from North America and this hotel would be 2-3 Star in the USA or Canada. Dinner and dessert were, by far, the best meal offered ..... just like Mom would make.

After reading many reviews, some very scary and some very good, we decided to take the plunge and book this hotel anyway and give it a try. Pretty good decision on our part. Yes the hotel is a bit dated, but when you know that going in, you know to expect that. The hotel was very clean & well kept,... More

Stayed here for two weeks in early January 2012 and were pleasantly surprised considering the negative reports we had read from earlier last year. The room was a garden room but had a superb sea view, it was large, air conditioned, recently decorated, and had plenty of storage space. On the down side, the plumbing left something to be desired,... More

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. 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. ... more   less
