After an outstanding week at the Nonsuch Bay Resort, a one-night hotel was required to catch a departing flight. At $202 CAD (incl tax) for one night, this hotel was not value for money. No local restaurant for breakfast (although an excellent across-the-street dinner venue). Access to the beach was via a two-block walk on an unlit steep road without...

Just got back from 10 days at the Dickenson Bay Cottages, lovely place, clean, friendly, great pool and quiet. Free computer access at the office, and vouchers for free sun beds at Tony's on the beach, big savings. Just a grand place to stay. You have to traverse two short but steep hills to get to the beach about a...

I am not that difficult to please. Give me a clean room, with functioning amenities an internet connection (preferably fast) and I am good to go. DBC has everything you need for a quiet, safe, enjoyable vacation. Why write this review? To inform you of how DBC strive for excellence in customer service, which, in my opinion, is how issues...

I had both pluses and minuses at Dickenson Bay Cottages. Stayed here for over a week for business/vacation and locked in a cheap rate by my company, especially for Antigua in winter. I have been to Antigua over ten times now and stayed in a variety of hotels including Halcyon Cove, Carlisle Bay, Blue Waters, Antigua Village, etc. Carlisle Bay...

I stayed here two nights on a business trip. Cottages are sizeable (mine was a duplex) and well maintained, good-size swimming pool and ample car parking space. A daily charge is made for wi-fi (why?) but not excessive. Watch out for the very tame bananquits which can get into your room given half a chance. Not cheap, but I was...

Just returned from a two week stay at DBC and what a fab place to stay if you like peace and quiet using a venue as a base to explore the island.
