Antigua is beautiful. Resort is a bit dated, but the staff is wonderful. Yvette in reception was amazing. We discussed my passion for collecting money from other countries and she went out of her way to find the missing coins I was looking for on her day off. Fenton was a true sport in always trying to get people to...

We have just returned from a 2 week stay here and knowing it was a 3 star hotel not a 5 star were not expecting the ritz! However a clean room would have been nice and not unreasonable. Mould and lime scale covered the bath and shower and some paint on the walls and ceilings instead of a dirty coloured...

We had a very relaxing two weeks in this lovely location. "We like a challenge" was the comment from Devon the Asst Manager and we certainly provided them with a few which they dealt with admirably. My wife has a food allergy and whilst it took a little time for them to get to grips with this, the new Executive...

We vacationed from Jan. 13 to Jan. 20/2013. It is amazing to read the reviews and seeing comments from people that are so negative, it is whether they do not travel much or that they are very picky....... Yes, we were somewhat hesitant because of the 3 star rating, not because of those negative comments that we have read...... This...

This was a perfect vacation from the beautiful beach, good food, attentive staff, interesting guest from around the world, friendly Antiguans and so much more. Highly recommended! There are also many fulfilling diversions from the sea and sand including trips to a historic town, Nelson's Dockyard, pool aerobics, horseback riding, scuba diving, windsurfing, jet skis, and memorable boat trips.

We returned from Halcyon Cove on Friday 18th Jan 2013 after spending twelve nights at the hotel. We went back to the Halcyon to celebrate my 50th on the 8th Jan. All our favourite staff were still there and, amazingly, they remembered us from 18 months ago. The beach was still as fab as we remembered and the cocktails still...

This was the second time that I was at the Halcyon and it was just as good as the first visit 9 months ago! The staff is friendly, helpful, and will do anything to ensure the satisfaction of their guests. I was travelling with a co-worker and had requested 2 beds. While it was our fault for not mentioning this...

I stayed at this hotel in March 12 and was very impressed. we arrived at reception and were greeted with a cold drink. A lovely porter showed us to our beach front room. Wow, what a view!
