Very relaxing holiday, wonderful beaches and bungalows right by beach. Food a bit repetitive but staff all very helpful and friendly. Night life nonexistent . Had a colonial feel which was nice rather than could be anywhere.

Had a wonderful time staying at this resort. I chose Hawksbill as it seemed to be a place that would be more peaceful than anything and I definitely made the right choice! We booked the Garden view bungalow but were put in the seaview bungalow. Our bungalow had only a fan and no windows, only screens and shutters but the... More

Returned a few weeks ago and enjoyed our stay The facility is in need of an upgrade and believe that the lease agreement with the property limits Rex Resorts willingness to invest more $$ Having said that the price of our visit was reasonable and the staff's response to repair service was very good We would like to see an...

I believe that the hotel is closing for 5 months so improvements are now being made, well overduew but this is really good news, hope the staff are able to manage during this time. Cannot wait to go back in December.

Fact: this is the best location in Antigua with four fabulous beaches. ( and it isn't a long walk to the fourth beach - whoever wrote that must be exceptionally unfit!) No matter how many people are staying there you never feel it's crowded, so if you are worried about being seen with, or looking at, senior citizens you don't... More

The Hawksbill by rex resorts team would like to thank you for sharing your vacation experience on trip advisor.

Last year we stayed for 12 days at Hawksbill. We liked it so much we decided to come back again. This time we spent 5 days at Coconut Beach Club and then transfered to the Hawksbill for a week. Coconut Beach is closing in May..... and I can understand why! When we reached the Hawksbill it was like coming back... More

The best things first, the staff are fantastic, all of them - friendly, efficient and genuinely welcoming - and location beautiful. As many others have said, the accommodation could do with some work, but it is mainly cosmetic, and the grounds are nicely kept. The ambience is peaceful and relaxing, I liked it but if you are looking for late... More

Take an idyllic location, add cheerful staff, good food, inclusive drinks, sunshine & the occasional splash of showers to keep one fit and you get a relaxation. There's no Air Conditioning but there are ceiling fans. Whilst there are no baths there are showers. There is Wifi but no TV in the bedrooms. My only concern was that the mosquito... More

The Hawksbill by rex resorts team appreciates you sharing your feedback on tripadvisor even though your comments and views were not pleasant, insulting in somes cases and definitely not a true representation of the warm and friendly service spirit offered at Hawksbill. The majority of our guests do enjoy our services and therefore return several times throughout the years. Regards,... More
