My wife and I stayed at Hawksbill for four days in mid-January and had a great time. Don't let the bad reviews scare you away. It's all about your expectations. We wanted peace and quiet (check), a beautiful beach for walking, swimming, and reading (check), acceptable meals as part of the all-inclusive cost (check), and an opportunity to break bread...

We first spotted Hawksbill resort from the sea while sailing past last year..it looked idyllic, perfect cove with beach, a ruined sugar mill and the iconic hawksbill rock, so resolved to spend a day there on one of their 60 dollar US passes. Went two days ago....oh dear, what a disastrous place. Good things first, the staff were universally charming... More

Spent a week at beginning of January. Seen many luxury places all over the world and yes this is not luxury. So if you look for that or perfection in everything, do not come here. If you want plenty of space, as much beach for yourself right on your front door and a lack of pretentious customers, this is for... More

This was our third visit to Hawksbill. Think "Fawlty Towers". Not a glitzy Sandals type resort but very friendly. The staff is pretty much the same as our last visit and some of them have been there for over 30 years. We didn't notice that much damage from the hurricane. The low parts were the food. Not a lot of... More

We last visited the Hawksbill many years ago when it was not an all inclusive. The location is still as breathtakingly beautiful as ever and the staff, many of 25 years plus service, still very polite and friendly. The main reason to come here is the location which after visiting many islands is hard to beat. Think you either fall... More

I was deeply disappointed to receive such a poor value for money staying in Hawksbill. Even though location was nice for people looking for serenity and isolation, there is no way to go anywhere outside the resort and the closest place is St John's -the capital- which is 20 min ride by a taxi. Room are terrible: not painted or... More

We chose Hawksbill for our anniversary in December. This was our first visit and despite not being returners or die-hards, we were treated like royalty. The staff are truly exceptional. The location is a little isolated with taxis being the only option to get to St John's but the view is spectacular from the terrace so more than makes up... More
