If you want clean, comfortable, great food, beautiful beach and wonderful staff this is the place for you. We had a wonderful stay at this resort. We were celebrating our 35th anniversary and they made it one to remember. The resort is nicely laid out and because it isn't a huge resort you get to know everyone and they are just like family. Everybody deserves a big thank you from us. Julian is so sweet and her smile is contagious at dinner time. Fenton will make you laugh even if you don't want to. Dolston and the other bartenders can make you a drink that will keep you coming back for more. (Especially the lady passion). The gardeners keep the grounds so beautiful. The chambermaids kept our room clean and a we didn't have a bad meal. I'm GF and there was lots to choose from. Riaan the manager always stopped by and had a chat with us. The beach is absolutely breath taking. If you are looking for a budget friendly vacation in a place so beautiful it takes your breath away. This is it.
What an awesome location it has. 100 meter next to sea. And the beach is one of the cleanest and nicest in world. Food is quite expensive there. I suggest get your booze from super market and store in your room. If you have time go for D-Boat. They charge 100 us dollor per person in which you will get unlimited drinks and lunch. They have a ship in 20m water with many water rides in it.
Would I go back? In an instant!This was my review from June 2016...and we enjoyed the island so much we are returning in March 2018! I can hardly wait!Wish I was still there! From start to finish we had a wonderful trip! We were met at the airport by Rogers from Bo Tours and taxied out to the resort right away. After we checked in we just kept right on going and walked into a beautiful turquoise Caribbean Sea.We then went back to check out our room..spotless and looked freshly painted. Down duvets on the beds, air conditioning running! balcony overlooking the pool and the sea. Provided with giant beach towels every day of our stay. Loved it!The food...what can I say? I think I gained 10 lbs while there. Standard breakfast with a really good omelet bar. Wonderful servers (Loved Bernadette and Margretta). The food was great and plentiful...many choices every day. Always a chicken dish, a fish dish and usually a third (pork, beef etc) Lots of fresh fruit - my favourite for sure...The staff,,,Along with the servers, there were several hilarious bartenders out on the beach, including the poor man who just rolled his eyes every time we asked for one of the blue things (it was a drink of the day - can't remember what was in it but they were good) He and we just got to the point to where we just smiled at him and he rolled his eyes and started mixing them.Then there was Erroll...you're a wonderful man...you always have a smile and a laugh for everyone.The beach vendors were not aggressive. They were very polite and took "no" for an answer without being pushy. The taxi drivers were wonderful. I would like to thank Martin E. for his wonderful tour of the island, including several beaches, Shirley's Heights, Nelson's Dockyard,the rainforest and a pineapple stop! If I ever come back I will look you up for sure!Also a special thank you to Eli, our taxi driver on Barbuda. You brought the island to life for us and you barbecue a mean lobster!I think I left a little piece of my heart in Halcyon Cove. It will always be a special place for me.
Travel January 22 to the 30th 2017Where to start.....after a very long and painful flight ( 30 hours later thanks to air Canada) from Ottawa to Antigua we finally arrived to the Halcyon Cove by Rex Resorts. We were to arrive on Sunday around 2:00pm but arrived on Monday at 10:00am. After our check in I was told that I could only get my at 3:00pm. Since I was to arrive the day before I expected to get my room right away. The hotel was over booked and my room was rented to someone else for the Sunday night. After a very long delay I was given a room next to the beach courtesy of Corlette which is amazing. She is what every hotel needs in an employee to make visitors happy. The resort staff are very friendly and polite. I simply love there laid back personalities. Everyone of them are smiling at all times. If you have the opportunity to be served by Heather you will be lucky because she is amazing and extremely friendly. Please take time to talk to her and you will discover how amazing she is. My overall stay was comfortable and the food was as expected.
Sixteen family and friends gathered at the Halcyon Cove in July to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. We were in contact with the resort's general manager and the tour desk manager several months before the trip and, thanks to their generous sharing of information and willingness to help make arrangements - both onsite at the resort and for excursions around the island - the trip was practically flawless. The rooms were clean and quite comfortable, both in size and appointments. The staff were friendly and accommodating to all reasonable requests and several of them went well out of their way to make sure we were all enjoying ourselves. Without being asked, the dining staff made special seating arrangements for all of us to eat together at every dinner. Food and drink were plentiful at all meals, with a wide array of choices. (Our group included some vegetarians and vegans and they were also quite satisfied.) The beach was beautiful and there were plenty of lounge chairs (although, admittedly, we were there during the off-season). The free snorkeling and kayaking were nice added features. While this may not be the most elegant resort I have visited, it is clearly one of the best values for the price and one I would easily visit again.
