This hotel is just lovely, made all the more so by the staff. esp Julian (restaurants manager) and Donna, in the restaurant and Heather on the pool bar. The receptionists couldn't be more helpful. We had a minor accident with the beach brolly* and Mario was very quick to help out with some minor first aid (*take care on these...

The Antiguan people are really lovely and a big part of what makes a visit here so easy to enjoy. The staff at the Rex Halcyon are very friendly and genuinely just want you to have a good experience without being too 'in your face'. I first came to the Rex Halcyon back in 2002 and did try another hotel...

We have just returned from 11 nights at Halcyon. It was quite quiet but that didn't stop any of the entertainment. Hotel: the rooms (as per the posts below) were a little tired - but they were redecorating rooms whilst we were there which is good. Rooms were immaculately cleaned every day. The grounds are spectacular and pool is lovely...

Just returned from this lovely friendly hotel after 2 weeks with my husband,daughter, son in law and 2 year old grandson. I cried when we left. I have never ever met such friendly caring staff.

Don't know where the American from Ft. Lauderdale stayed, but it wasn't the Halcyon Cove I stayed at. Very Friendly staff, not a gourmet's paradise, but certainly didn't make anyone sick. I certainly wouldn't call the island a high-crime area. There may be some, but I didn't see any. Never got accosted by any "extremely aggressive" beach vendors. The few...

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
