About The Resort

We remain committed to prioritising the health and safety of our guests, their families and our employees at our Starfish and rex resorts properties. With this in mind, we would like to inform you of the most recent change to our service as a result of the evolving situation with COVID-19.

Effective Monday, 30th March 2020, Starfish Halcyon Cove will be permanently closed.

Despite taking all precautionary measures to protect the health and wellbeing of our guests and employees during this global health crisis, the evolution of this pandemic and government restrictions on travel have given us little choice but to close our doors earlier than originally planned.

We would like to confirm that Starfish Halcyon Cove will undertake the extensive renovation projects as previously communicated.

Every rex resort is located directly on a fabulous beach, and the uniquely fascinating Halycon Cove is no exception. It is, in so many ways, the dream Antigua vacation hotel, offering you the perfect opportunity to enjoy a refreshing swim before breakfast or a romantic stroll along the shore by night, all at an affordable price.
Halcyon Cove by rex resorts is a non smoking hotel.
Address : Dickenson Bay, St Johns Parish, Antigua
