I visited this hotel with my wife in early November.This hotel is all about location,Dickenson Bay is a little piece of paradise.The hotel is not.Room was ok,but the bathroom could be better,cracked sink and the bath was filthy.But our main gripe was with the bar in the lobby.It is only opened on a Sunday.If you want to have a drink or a coffee you have no choice but to go down to the beach bar,which in my opinion is crazy.Open the bar in the lobby,look after your guests,some people like to sit in the lobby have a chat,have a coffee or a drink.As I have said the beach is stunning and is everything you want from Antigua.I believe the hotel is about to be refurbished and it shows,staff are uninterested, and to be honest,quite rude.Definately visit Dickenson bay,but give this place a miss,its a 1 star at best.
Lovely place to visit yes the rooms are a bit out dated but its the carrabean Staff are so friendly and helpful, foods great omlettes made by Orlan are fantastic drinks are good lots of rum, book your trips with Dave from the hotel not them on the beach and ask for Lesney Benjamin aka LES .. he drives Kermit on discovery tours fantastic chap .......
Sunsets are fantastic at the beach
Sea was rough for a few days but soon calmed down didnt stop us swimming tho
Yes we will return soon ????????????
