We booked our holiday at the last minute and chose the Hawksbill as we had been once before and knew it was a lovely spot. I won't describe the beautiful gardens and beaches as many others have and they are right. This time we had a Superior Seaview Room and it was a good choice: ground floor with balcony looking...

We have stayed at Hawksbill on a number of occasions. The vast majority of people love it for its laid back atmosphere, beautiful scenery and fantastic staff. It has a "shabby chic" charm - if you want a 5 star modern hotel with gratuitous wait staff, this is not a resort for you. The food is adequate, but is probably... More

The Hawksbill Resort (part of Rex resorts) could not be in a better location - excellent vantage, beach frontage, access to the beach, etc. This resort has not been updated since it was built in the sixties - and it really shows and was a let down. No complaint about (most) staff, and the food was good and plenty. However,... More

Well we must be joining the oldies set at last as we decided to return to the Hawksbill. Not much has changed except the guests we recognised from last year were a year older (of course they would be - silly) and like us they had chosen to stay on the same accommodation as last time. That must be a... More

I and my wife just got back to the UK today after our 5th visit to the Hawksbill. I am quite conflicted writing this review. If I give too much praise more people will go and the place could be ruined! Look up my original review from some years back as not much has changed. If you want the most... More
