All Inclusive Halcyon Cove - One of the Finest Positioned Hotels in Antigua

There is a beach next to every Rex resort, and the uniquely fascinating Antigua resort of Halcyon Cove is no exception. It is, in so many ways, the dream Antigua hotel, offering you the perfect opportunity to enjoy a romantic stroll by night or a bracing swim before breakfast at an affordable price.

The beach at this Antigua resort on the shores of Dickenson Bay, is one of the most beautiful beaches in the entire Caribbean, never mind the over 300 other beaches that are to be found on this island.

Nonetheless, this is one of the hotels in Antigua that is best placed for day trips around this beautiful island. A stay at the Halcyon Cove by Rex Resorts for your Antigua holidays means plenty of sun, sea and sand.

Everything an All Inclusive Antigua Holiday Should Be

Our All Inclusive package features :
- Full buffet breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner
- A wide variety of Caribbean Cocktails
- Local beers, soft drinks, house spirits and house wines by the glass (NB: Bottle water and a la carte dining not included)
- Sunfish sailing and snorkeling
- Free pool scuba demonstration
- Regular evening enterntainment
- Taxes and tips

You'll always be kept entertained at this Antigua resort, which has plenty to keep you busy. Popular daytime activities include relaxing in the sun, making the most of the resort's beach location, in addition to the many water sports that can also be enjoyed here.

Evenings at this Antigua hotel are equally enjoyable, with delicious food and authentically Caribbean entertainment. Unlike other Antigua holidays, the Halcyon Cove by Rex Resorts boasts the romantic a la carte restaurant Warri Pier. Located on its own pier overlooking the ocean, this is everything Antigua holidays should be.

After you have wined and dined, the elegant Ciboney Lounge is the perfect place to relax and take in some traditional Antiguan culture, whilst the lively Lobby Bar has plenty of music-based entertainment for you to enjoy late into the night.

All Inclusive Halcyon Cove by Rex Resorts is a non-smoking hotel.

Repeat visit

People remark that the hotel is "tired". Yes it is in parts. However the location and friendly staff more than make up for its shortcomings. You pay less than half what you would pay in "Sandals" just up the beach on a less attractive section. Go there with an open mind and expect a three star experience -- you will be pleasantly surprised by what you get in return.

Holiday Trip

We stayed at Halcyon Cove by Rex Resorts in Antigua. The best part of the trip was the location. Beautiful, crystal clear water...soft, powdery sand. Unfortunately, the hotel was less than stellar. It's old, tired and in desperate need of a makeover. When the first thing you see is a building with missing roof tiles, you know that something is amiss. Many of the buildings had peeling paint and missing roof tiles. The landscaping was in serious need of attention and the beach palapas need replacing. The staff was accommodating and very friendly. Honestly they made the trip enjoyable. I would not stay here again, nor would I recommend it to anyone. The folks at the corporate office need to come to this resort and see things for themselves. Very disappointed with the resort and certainly did not get my money's worth.

Rundown and old resort

The pictures must be from 20 years ago. The rooms are shabby, not very clean and were full of mosquitoes. Even when I asked them to spray, I was still eaten alive by the bugs. Had to carry my heavy suite case alone up the stairs. Breakfast is sparse with no fresh vegetables and almost no dairy products. I will not return. Staff was very amiable though.
