First visit to Antigua, staying at the little gem that is Hawksbill. The location, as other reviewers have said, is wonderful. Four beaches, two practically deserted during the time of our holiday (June/July). The staff were friendly and welcoming. Yes, the place is tired and worn, but it sort of adds to the charm. The food was plentiful and tasty,... More

It was our first time to Antigua and chose Hawksbill after reading various reviews on trip adviser regarding other resorts. We chose very well and we couldn't fault a thing. The location is excellent with 4 beaches to choose from. We know we chose to be in Antigua through the low season but for us it was terrific, very few... More

Well, after our experiences last year we thought long and hard about returning this year. In last year's review I mentioned how I'd saved an elderly chap at the Antigua Zip Line Centre while his wife stood by sobbing (I think it may have been laughter!) but, this year, he developed a serious case of trapped wind (to the extent...

If you are into chromium and plastic, like dressing for dinner, enjoy fine food, lavish entertainment, finely decorated plush rooms, starched white linen, crisp fresh towels and the odd butler, then don't bother going to Hawksbill. If on the other hand you like nice people, beautiful beaches, a lovely tropical setting, a sanctuary of peace, an oasis of calm, combined... More

We visited for 10 days in June and had an enjoyable and relaxing holiday. We did not have the best room (a side Garden Bungalow) but we only used it for sleeping and it was good value. There are drought restrictions at the moment and this resulted in quite frequent and unannounced 'no water' which was inconvenient. The plumbing meant... More
