apartments are clean and well maintained. Bit isolated, great for couples, Coconut Grove Restaurant & Bar on the beach to the left served great food. There is Tonys bar on beach past sandals for great Carribean food. Italian Le Bussola taxi ride 5 mins or 15minute walk down the road was also good. Casino next door is going to have a restaurant soon, which would be another restaurant in walking distance. There is a Bar across the road that serves Pizza and burgers etc. only open in evenings also has crazy golf. Apart from that there is nothing else around the location of the Village. Overall my husband and I had a great relaxing holiday, is the first time we had stayed in an apartment and I was a bit concerned as to what to expect I am glad I was not disappointed and I can be quite funny when it comes to cleanliness etc., inspecting mattress and the like. We will definitely be back.

Our fourth time at Hawksbill. Still in love with it and although just got back last evening, can not wait to return. It has four wonderful beaches. our favorite is Eden Beach. It is a very natural setting which is basically empty. 3/4 of a mile long it sits in a peninsula. We spent the most of our two weeks sunning in its privacy. We saw at most 10 folks walk by during the entire time.
The hotel is very simple and rustic, it is not for everyone. The food is good. I managed to gain 10 pounds despite exercising every day. The rooms are simple with no TV or Internet. there is WIFI in the lobby only. It is perfect place to get away. No TV no news for two weeks. Staff will become your friends. William, Millie, David and ? Andrewthe bartenders get to know you and prepare your favorite drinks as they see you walking up to one of the bars.
The guests are mostly European which allows for eclectic, engaging conversation.
If you are looking for a place to totally relax and don't mind rustic yet clean facility this is the place to go. The saying is that you never go to Hawsbill just once. We met folks who have been there 7-28 times and we heard of a couple in their 90's who have been there more than 40 times.

The resort has everything you might need. In addition to the actual unit you stay in there is a swimming pool, tennis courts, a supermarket, several retail stores, and at least two excellent restaurants. A fabulous beach with restaurant and bar serving great food and better drinks, are close by; within walking distance if you get the right rental unit. Beach chairs were free and umbrellas were $5-10, depending on who you rented from. It was a bit of a hassel to get a parking pass but everyone is friendly and helpful. We had a few problems with the safe and a sliding patio door but the response was immediate and the 'fixes' were efficiently accomplished. I would stay there again in a heartbeat!
The unit, which faced a canal with and ocean view, was two floors with a patio downstairs and a balcony upstairs. There were two bedrooms and two and a half baths. The kitchen had the basics - sufficient for our needs. It had air conditioning, a TV downstairs (but not in either bedroom), and a pull-out in the living room. We were able to park our rented car in the tiny driveway but golf carst are available for use on property. My husband had a great experience with Jolly Harbour Dives located on property.

"Nice Hotel, Beautiful beach with clear, warm water"
We booked Jolly Beach as it allowed for a family vacation as well as couple get-away!! We booked the Junior Suite which is based on the quiet end of the mile long resort/beach. It's small walk away from the entertainment areas, main eating areas, and the family,super saver and standard rooms.
The Resort is what you would expect from a well established resort. It is kept maintained and clean at all times.
The All-inclusive food is your basic: Pasta, veggies, chicken, pork, fish and beef served in different forms on a daily basis. The breakfast is also your standard eggs, bacon, beans, potatoes and pancakes. You can enjoy the Jerk Chicken and fries at the Beach Hut Located by the main family pool/pool bar. The Resort as 3 restaurants that are a must to try and are included in the all inclusive package, you just have to book a table a day prior. The Italian restaurant was comparably better than the Seafood and Indian. However the desert, bakery and fresh fruit range is amazing!!!
There are a range of activities to do on the beach, like sailing & kayaking. Lessons and life vests are provided!!
The Beach is clean, the water is warm and clear. Beautiful shades of blues alongside a white soft sandy beach. beware of the Seashells though!!
The staff deal really well with request and any complaints you may have.
The only issue we came across was the air-conditioning. Some rooms have individual AC units and others a air-cooling system, which do not cool the rooms enough.

Clean, excellent air-conditioning in my room, friendly staff, good well appointed room too and sited next to one of Antigua's best beaches at a reasonable cost...my one night stay was far too brief .I will certainly stay there again and for hopefully for much longer.
