We stayed in Hawksbill between 02/01/16 and 18/01/16 and this was our first visit. Having read the reviews on here we had managed our expectations somewhat and so were not too surprised to encounter a few problems but most of these were relatively minor and were resolved. The biggest issue for us was that when we arrived the beauty spa... More

I agree totally with the report by Tim A below. We stayed between 28/12/15 and 4/1/16. Our first room (60) was a beach bungalow. On settling in I noticed there was no lock on the door,the window shutters had been painted over so they could not be opened/closed and the mosquito nets were all ripped.After much discussion with the receptionist...

Superb location. Stunning beach with beautiful white sand. We had a room with a beach view which was lovely. Everything is just a little tired. The staff are lovely and really make you feel welcome. Food is ok not great. With some money spent this resort could be something special.

My wife and I spent five nights in Hawksbill in mid-January. This was our 4th visit in ten years. We had a great time. I would recommend it enthusiastically. If you've been to Hawksbill before, you already know its beauties and its blemishes. If you liked it, you should not be dissuaded from returning by any of the reviews since... More

We ended our Caribbean honeymoon with six nights at the Hawksbill. The main positive is location with four beaches in total. Other than that it is difficult to recommend this resort. All the staff are friendly but only about half of them are competent. We were told that when they re-opened about 90% were new hires and they received minimal... More

Having read some of the December 2015 reviews I was fearing the worst when we arrived 09JAN16 - we needn't have worried. We booked an air conditioned beach club room for our 10 night stay, as part of the refurbishment this had received new furniture both inside and out (including the bed) and a lick of paint, I am aware...

This is a very basic resort. We are here Jan 16 - 23/16. Staff here are wonderful. They cater to your wishes. There is no a la crate restaurant, but said they are working on it. Breakfast is very good as well as lunch. Not a huge selection, but you don't go hungry. Dinner in my opinion is just OK.... More

We arrived there the week after they reopened at Christmas. The first room we had the bed squeaked every time you sat on it and the bathroom light didn't work.

Over the years hawksbill has been getting "tired"; that said a lovely place to go and relax. It re-opened in December and at the time there was and most likely still is a lot of building work on-going. The rooms have been refreshed with new toilets and mossie nets but no drastic changes. I think they have missed an opportunity... More
