We went to visit the resort for a day, talked to a few of the guests on the beach and heard stories of a lot of broken fixings and fixtures in rooms. The outside shower did not work because the valve was broken, which summed up our visit and coincided with their complaints. We were told that lunch was included... More

First, I must say this. My original stay was booked for Halcyon Cove. Unfortunately, my group & I got to the gate and were informed it has been closed (for months). Couldn't be too mad, after all, I was in Antigua (they have 365 beaches). Moving right along, worked out that our reservation was transferred to Hawksbill. What a great... More

Some background: I traveled to Hawksbill with one of my good friends who had been to the resort three previous times. She was completely shocked at how quickly this resort has deteriorated since her last visit. As others have written, there is a lease dispute between the owners of the resort and the owners of the property on which the... More

Lovely to return and see our favourite staff in the most beautiful place that we love. Returning each year the decline seen was quite sad this time.The buildings and equipment are so old and tired and we felt that we were paying for 4 beaches and friendly staff and not much else. Food was better than last year but the... More

To start, I like 4 star hotels, but have the bandwidth to sway either way so long as I'm prepared. Call me flexible… Read the reviews before you go and you will enjoy your stay overall. Cons: Limited meal hours- If you need to eat every 3 hours, you will find yourself hungry between lunch and dinner. This hotel only... More
