My friend and I stayed at the Halcyon Rex on a Virgin holiday, on Dickenson bay. We chose this hotel as it was the cheapest we could find, on a Room only basis (we're not keen on all inclusive), that was on a beach. We...More
Nice quiet vacation, small resort. The beach is wonderful. Food was good. Tea time was great,
No disco on site if you are looking for night life this is not the place for you.

If you're looking for an affordable, clean, no frills place, you found it. After reading some negative reviews, was very unsure of staying here, but turns our it really wasn't as bad as some people have written. Not everybody has the same expectations & opinions...More
We stayed at Halcyon Cove in early February. There are numerous pros and cons to this resort. I'll start with the positive otherwise you might be too put off.
1. The beach is beautiful and shelves very gently for a cooling dip or safe swim....More
Large Clean Garden view Room, an extra table in the Room would have been good.
Very nice staff, drinks at the bar especially the Zombie was great, everyone should
try the ice cream.
Lovely Beach, did a lot of walking on the beach.

I took travel rods, none provided. We caught most of our fish on a whip and float, using bait from breakfast e.g. luncheon meat, cheese or bacon. Watch the crabs if you fish on the bottom. Best to fish just over the breaking waves, we waded out . The fish are not that big so use 14 or 16 hooks else you will miss bites. I tried a spinner with no luck . I also fished a float and a ledger further out but oinly got my bait pinched with little indication of a bite. Think we caught about 10 species including a pipe fish thing whose mouth was as long as its body. If the kids fish, watch out for the weaver looking fish , it has a sharp bite so make sure you use forceps or a discorger. Hope that helps
