This was by far the best place to chill, they sure make a mean Pina Colada. The staff were so friendly and helpful and one even got a spider out of my friends room. I just loved it and hope to one day return.

Hawksbill closed on the 5th May 2015 for at least six months for complete refurbishment - there is no way whatsoever that anyone is staying there at all or have been during this month. We inspected the site a few days later - substantial demolition and alterations being carried out. Hawksbill website no longer bears any relation to the proposed... More

First time in Antigua, not the prettiest island i have to admit, however Hawksbill resort was a dream: charm from its worn out resort from the... More

This hotel is falling apart. My husband and I took a short trip for our anniversary and only had two days. The first room we had was filthy and the walls were paper thin. You could hear a man next door coughing nonstop so we changed rooms. The next room was not much better. Sink falling off the wall and... More

Hawksbill by Rex Resorts is a really peaceful place to vacate. Food was great. The pool and beach-side bar and restaurant are stunning. I can not say enough about how friendly the staff are at this place - they really took it over the top for me. If you want peace and quite, good food and stunning views...at a great... More

Overall rating Average basically due to our dream 25th Wedding Anniversary being ruined after my wife Dawn was injured when she fell on our first night on poorly maintained steps, resulting in her being on crutches for the whole holiday, luckily for the resort that the fall had not happened to one of the more elderly guests. The resort is... More

This was a wonderful all inclusive get away. All of the servers were friendly and happy to make our stay enjoyable. The food was great and healthy. We stayed in the cheapest bungalo and still had a porch with a wonderful beach view. It wasn't over crowded and we met several guests that had been to this resort before. It... More

Sadly we have just left Hawksbill 2 days early from our holiday. On the plus side it's location is simply fabulous , sadly nothing else is. The buildings are in a shocking state of repair but worst of all the staff are simply awful. There is no attempt at service or even a smile. In fact I would go as... More
