This was my fourth stay at this hotel in 3 years, and once again I've come home wondering how soon I can go back! I firmly believe, having travelled a fair bit, that it is the people who make a place - and if that were physically the case this hotel would look more like the Taj Mahal than a...

Had one week here after having a week at the sister resort, the Hawksbill. You can not compare this resort to the Hawksbill! The halcyon Cove was in a great location. The rooms were really good, great sleep quality. Good air conditioning! Friendly staff. The breakfast waitresses were really slow, but mostly because they were under-staffed. If you wanted a...

Was a bit worried when I booked and saw some very very scathing reviews on this hotel. Actually wrote to 15 people who had given it a 4 or 5 out of 5 in the last months prior to the 1st Nov. All wrote back and all confirmed that this is a charming and lovely 3* hotel with 5* location...

My week at the Halycon was average. The property looks good and the grounds are clean.The staff at the resturant and the kitchen are very friendly and helpful. The hotel could do more to make guests feel comfortable they can make sure all the rooms have working phones in case of emergency, also when the cleaners take dishes out of...

This small but quaint resort really satisfied my search for quiet beach with calm waters. That is only the beginning, there are limited restaurants but the food is made from the heart not mass produced. A variety of home-cooked food where there is something for everyone, even fries and hamburgers for lunch by the beach. The service is typical Caribbean,...

This is a great hotel right on Dickenson Bay. We were particuarly impressed by the kind and helpful staff, as well as the food!!! Our seaview room was steps away from the pool and the beach.

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.

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
