Hawksbill resort

Posted May 1, 2015
Pros: Location and four beaches.
Cons: Being remodeled.
This was our third time there. Enjoyed the beaches as usual. Not much sense in commenting on the room, dining area, or people because it is shutting down for 6 months to remodel and sounds like a lot of people are being replaced. Everyone of staff were helpful and friendly considering the mood.

Peaceful getaway

Posted Mar 3, 2015
Pros: The location.
Cons: Updating the facility
Location: The location is great if you like getting tan.
When my wife and I first arrived, we were greeted with champagne. The reception was nice but in need of updates. We moved down to the Sea Grapes Bar where we thought we were in a geriatric center. Yes everyone was retired and living their years in Antigua, but as time went on we started to see younger people. The rooms are adequate especially since you have no tv or phones. But if you are looking for nice, peaceful and quiet vacation, this is definitely it. You will lose track of time and days just relaxing on the beach or having drinks at the bar.

Average

It's a good all inclusive for a night or two. I would not stay the whole week. It would get old real quick. Our room wasn't ready upon arrival (4pm). The food was average, but not horrible. Good rentals on the sailboats.

Dated Paradise

Posted Feb 23, 2015
Pros: Beautiful grounds, beaches, ocean views and friendly staff. All inclusive was wonderful!!!
Cons: Checking out what is required to be improved, replaced or repaired with each unit. We had the impression that maintenance was only fair.
Location: Excellent established location and cove. Several side trips (some are all day), available for tours of Antigua or nearby Barbuda.
Our first stay at Hawksbill (9 of 10) great weather days. Required taxi service from and to airport. Gated entrance. Warm reception from staff. Beautiful grounds with ocean overlook and beaches. All the units are either on the water or have water views. The units vary in size, type and condition. Our water view unit was comfortable and relied on the prevailing temperatures which were mostly ideal (no AC, phone or TV). All meals, save lunch require a lengthy walk back to the main restaurant on the overlook and a gradual uphill walk or a shorter distance (38 step) stair climb. Breakfast and dinner are buffet style, with a la carte available at extra cost) and are quite good. Lunch is served at beach level center food/drink area. Good food variety and quality. All food and alcoholic drinks were included. The ocean ranges from rough with crashing surf to calm permitting kayaking and sailing. These craft are available at a modest price. Enjoyed sitting at the beach edge in comfortable full reclining chairs. Walking the beaches, as two other beaches are part of the grounds.

Convenience in a Hawksbill happiness

Posted Feb 20, 2015
Pros: See above.
Cons: I don't like working through Rex Resorts. I knew more about the resort than the Rex agent. Hard to book rooms and make arrangements.
Location: Town and side trips easily available, on site travel concierge.
Small, intimate resort. Comprehensive offering of food, living accomodations, recreation, and relaxation in a tropical paradise. Staff is variable, from rude to convivial Open bar and overall generous offering of services makes this a best buy. Good family resort. I like the "openness" of Antiqua, and this resort in particular: local people swim on the beaches, easy trip to town, goats feed on the property, etc.

Januar-ferie i caribien

Posted Jan 31, 2015 on Hotels
Hyggeligt hotel i tropisk stil men lidt nedslidt. All inclusive OK men dinner menuen lidt kedelig. Snorkling skuffende - nedslidt koralrev og for meget strøm + bølger. Størstedelen af hotelgæster over 50 år.

Fabulous location

Posted Jan 18, 2015 on Hotels
Best thing about the Hawksbill is its wonderful location. This is a real kick off your shoes and relax resort. It is only a 3 star but the beautiful setting more than compensates for any short comings. We last visited this hotel over 20 years ago when it was not all inclusive. It is still a special little place offering traditional and friendly hospitality.

Very basic but clean

Posted Oct 16, 2014
Pros: Nice location and the grounds were kept clean
Cons: Renovations and maybe updated furniture. Bug problem (cockroaches) entering rooms.
Location: Location is isolated making it very relaxing with a short drive (20min) to St. Johns.
Overall Hawksbill is lovely resort that is well maintained. The staff are courteous with a very few exception. The rooms are kept clean BUT the resort needs to take action in improving or limiting areas where cockroaches are able to enter your room. Possibly improve drains and window screens. I had a cockroach in my room almost everyday. For some this is not a big deal but it effected our ability to sleep soundly. The food is very basic with limited options but edible. Basically the same meals just about everyday. The resort is dated that could use some renovation.
