Pros: I enjoyed the fact that it is one bedroom unit, facing the pool and short walk to the beach. I will definitly stay here again.
Cons: TV could clearer, but you should be outside, not watching TV..

My only major issue was the water situation I was told that they don't get their water from the government they have their own pump system so most mornings when I got up to shower there would be either a trickle of water coming out of the pipe or none at all .most mornings I would need to call them and they did resolve the problem within 10 minutes the other times I called I didn't really get anybody on the phone which was a problem because I had people picking me up at a certain time other than that it's practically 5 minute walk down the hill to the beach which was perfect. It's very quiet and peaceful I had a beautiful view of the pool and Hills.

Unexpectedly - great value for money

Pros: Cleanliness, airiness
Cons: Plumbing, cutting board, freezer does not freeze that much, also please check the cooker in No. 6
The villas are a great price and they look great inside - not luxurious, but the place was cosy, had white walls, white furniture frames and a lot of space. It had a rustic, colonial feeling, but a "good" one, not the "shabby" rustic. It is better than it actually looks on the photos. There is free wifi which is quite good, cable TV, it is close to the beach, they provide beach towels and a voucher for two beach chairs daily. You will have to rent an umbrella for USD 10 per day, or you can bring your own, but it was a bit too windy for our folding parasols. The vouchers save you USD12 per day. The beach is amazing, with white sand and turquoise water - it is the reason why we decided to come back, although we stayed in a different hotel 10 years ago. The walk back is uphills, but short. We stocked up in the largest supermarket - the Epicurean - on the first day (the taxi is USD5 one way), but there is also a little shop near Antigua Village where we topped up (it is a 10 minute walk), and there is also a large First Food Store which is a 20 minute walk, but we never got there. Somebody mentioned that kitchens are stocked up differently, ours did not have a cutting board and we had to ask for two wine glasses (and were given them immediately). They had some problems with the plumbing on a couple of mornings, but resolved them promptly. We will come back and have booked for November, but it will depend on whether I can fly and go uphills then ;-) plus the Zika situation.

Pros: Kitchen, overall appearance.
Location: Not a great location. Only one nearby restaurant.
Very pleasant experience. Beautiful cottages, helpful staff. Not too close to the beach, though. You need to walk down a big hill.

Quiet, relaxing comfortable cottages

Posted Feb 21, 2015
Pros: Pool, grounds, staff and the overall feel of the cottage
Cons: The BBQ did not work very well and the outdoor seating could be more comfortable
Location: Dickenson Bay close to many restaurants, and beaches within walking distance. Extremely well stocked grocery store (Epicurean) within 5 min drive
We stayed at DB cottages in February. The staff were very helpful right from the begining carrying 2 single beds and setting them up for our 2 kids to sleep on. The pool and grounds were absolutely lovely. The high ceilings gave the room a very airy feel and the front veranda was a great place to relax and enjoy the surroundings. All the staff were very friendly and attentive. Karimah carried all our booking requests very efficiently. Great location with restaurants and beach near by. Nigels across the street had excellent pizza.

Pros: The peace and quiet.
Cons: A baking tray.
Myself and my girlfriend have just returned from a 9 day break at these cottages where we were looking for a relaxed environment with peace and quiet but also a nearby beach, beach bars and restaurants. Well it had all of the above so no-one was telling lies in the advertising and a good honest assessment of the place. The beach was great for swimming and one of the nicest beaches I've seen on the island with a really good restaurant at the far end called Ana's; great cocktails and food. There is a supermarket and it's a 25 minute walk away on a mainly flat road and they do pretty much everything so you shouldn't need to look elsewhere. We stayed in a one-bedroom cottage and found it to be very comfortable and had most of what we needed for a self catering apartment, (It's amazing how important a baking tray is when you haven't got one) but we also ate out at Ana's or walked up to Tradewinds hotel and used their restaurant. We both thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would certainly recommend it. Would we go back?...........without a shadow of a doubt!

Pros: Rooms, quiet location, friendly staff
Cons: Move more beaches closer!
Location: Can walk to beach but Dickenson bay can have a large number of cruise ship visitors. Really need a car to get to supermarket with one small shop near
Hotel was perfect for a family of 5, plenty of space with rooms up and down. Rooms were clean and well presented and equipped. Staff were polite and helpful and we wish all hotel accommodation could be like this.
