I must say every member of staff at the Halcyon was fabulous. They were always smiling, most friendly, and warm and made us so at that even a 3 day storm delay did not dampen our spirits. The hotel could do with an upgrade yes and little changes in between to the menu but overall I would give it a 9 out of 10 and a great 3 star hotel and I would certainly not hesitate to visit again. Chioca was a terrific tour agent, Normalin, Collette, Fenton our comedian, Denise, Margaret, Kema, Wendell, and all the wait and bar staff and Debbie the marketing and customer relations supervisor and all of the names I am forgetting , were all so terrific, I felt they were like family and I think all the hugs would probably say that too. Our entire group wants to say thank you for ensuring we had a wonderful time.
What a location, everything is Caribbean, drinks, food, location and entertainment. Rooms are typicaly Caribbean andthe sea views are great. If you are a return guest you will get a room upgrade subject to availability, can't wait until next Feb
This hotel has a great location just set back from the beach at Dickenson Bay, We were forced to stay there due our BA flight back from St Kitts striking a bird upon take off damaging one engine. The food at the Hotel was all buffet style and was pretty good. The big disappointment were the rooms all of them seem well past their sell by date. Some BA passengers complained of bugs in their rooms and alternative rooms had to be allocated, would I go back maybe if all rooms were given a face lift otherwise no.
It's the people that make resort shine. We visited for a week at the end if May beginning of June as a family if 12 (3 generations). Lots of children and just as many adults. We were upgraded to family suites which were right at the front if the resort. This action alone meant gave us peace of mind as all the children (all early double digits) were viewable from where ever we were.Fenton did a stand up job if gathering all the adults and ensuring fun and hilarity ensued. He is quick with a smile and quicker to make sure you are feeling happy with that Carribean vibe. Jesse was a blast in the pool with the aqua aerobics and always around to make sure you were having a good time. Gerald was amazing with the kids (and adults) always taking time to find fun things for them to do and making sure that no-one was left out. Our guide to snorkelling and kayaking, Gerald was well informed and easy going, a real win for family entertainment. Rogers was our point if contact and a nicer more knowledgeable fellow we couldnt have wished to have. Ready to look after all our needs with the usual carribean style and grace and with no pressure. We had a day of excursions to zip line, kayaking, snorkelling and hiking. The island is beautiful and our guide was very funny and well informed which added to the day.I would say that the facilities are the reason that the resort is 3 stars, some of the bathrooms are a bit shabby but nothing that wasn't ignorable given that the cleaning staff were brilliant and very helpful and given the great time we were having this was a very low priority.The food was plentiful and wonderful with plenty of choice, so even our fussy eaters were catered for. The resort staff were brilliant and very friendly. Definitely a place I would revisit. Fantastic family fun.
I stayed here last year and it was amazing this time as it was last year! Everything was the same I enjoyed from last year. Even brought some friends along and they enjoyed the resort too! Amazing staff from Devon in food & beverages to Dave in Guest Services. The General manager Riaan is absolutely the best. If it wasn't for Riaan I would probably not come because he keeps this place running like a fine tuned working (resort) machine.
