We were scheduled to stay at Hawksbill but were relocated due to damage from the recent hurricane. While all were kind at the other resort, we missed our home away from home at Hawksbill.

My first impression of this hotel wasn't great. The front desk clerk was spraying bug spray to kill the mosquitoes that were eating her for lunch, and then I was told that despite the fact that the tap water quality in Antigua isn't great, the all -inclusive rate did not include bottled water. But she gave me a couple of... More

The Hawksbill by rex resorts team would like to thank you for sharing your vacation experience on trip advisor. Mosquitoes and flies are unfortunately common in the Caribbean and are usually present more than the norm during the rainy and damp season. In terms of control, fogging takes place every other day combined with the use of sprays, citronella candles,... More

We stayed at the hawksbill for 1 week looking for a nice chilled out holiday which we got. Having seen previous reviews we expected wear & tear and when we arrived it's was clear the resort was very tired. We originally booked a garden bungalow, having not been entirely happy with our rooms we choice to pay for an upgrade... More

I can only imagine that ruby m stayed at a different location because we found the staff universally friendly & helpful without being tipped. Aircon is a must. Our room (we upgraded) was functional & perfectly adequate for our one week stay. A nice stroll from our room to the restaurant but the stairs at the end would be a... More

This was our third visit to Hawksbill, set in a beautiful bay off the beaten track in Antigua. The beaches include the only clothing-optional one on the island and are so far from civilisation that there are never any hawkers pestering you. Beautiful setting, very peaceful, but the rooms are very basic. Unlike previous visits this time we were very... More

A 4 Star setting with 3 star accommodation sums up our visit to the Hawksbill. Before I get negative I would like to explore the positives. The beaches and gardens are absolutely beautiful. I challenge anyone to find such an unspoilt location that features as a resort. I took boat trip around the island and was so glad that I... More

We stayed here a few years back and it still is a strong and happy memory. Great island and the hotel resort is fabulous. We enjoyed our beach front villa and the dinner each night looking out across the ocean. Never been on an all inclusive before this but it was great! Loved it and would go back!
