My wife and I just returned from our honeymoon at Hammock Cove and the any positive adjective you can think of is what should come to mind when thinking of this resort! From the time we arrived we treated as royalty. We were first met by our ambassador (which means he will get you whatever you want, whenever you want) Darryl who got us a drink and gave us a complete tour of the property. The property has every amenity you could need but the best part was our gorgeous room. The pictures you see online of the rooms do not give them justice and that's saying something! Darryl took care of setting up our meals at the lighthouse where every night the chef created something new and spectacular. The beach and pool were the very essence of tranquility as they enhanced the perfect turquoise waters. The people at the pools and beach again continued to wait on you hand and foot with a smile that made our time even better. We had a massage that took the remaining ounces of stress away as the people were professional and gave the best massage my wife and I ever had. Best: Food - all the restaurants have fun, innovative and delicious food. Room - the room makes you never want to leave due to the minibar, infinity pool and the fact your ambassador will bring you room service to die for! Size - the resort has very few rooms and that allows you to always receive great service, meet other couples and get to experience everything you desire. Also it allows for easy walking distance to everything. Beach/Water - as an avid snorkeler the water was teaming with fish right off of the beach or a short snorkel up the cove and they provided all of the gear (which was top notch by the way). The beach was gorgeous white sand and all the chairs were spaced so well you got seclusion. Also when you got to hot the water felt amazing as it cooled you but was warm enough you didn't want to get out. Service - everyone is there to help with anything you need! But even more than that they genuinely care that you are having a great time. Every bartender was great and the drink selection was phenomenal! Worst: It was too amazing and the only bad part was we had to leave.

Hotel's Favorite
My husband and I stayed for a week at Hammock Cove Antigua for our honeymoon and had an exceptional time. The service from the entire staff was top notch, and the amenities were just fantastic. We enjoyed lounging on the beach for hours, walking to the Devil's bridge, which we could see right from our room, and enjoying many delicious meals at the resort. Hammock Cove followed all COVID-19 guidelines to a T, we felt incredibly safe and that the resort was incredibly well kept during our time there. We cannot recommend Hammock Cove enough - the location, amenities, service...all absolutely amazing. Very impressed! Thank you to the amazing staff that made our stay at Hammock Cove so memorable - everyone was working so hard to ensure that the guests received the best experience - thank you for your hard work and care!

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 5 days and couldn't be happier. Your own private villa with a plunge pool, all inclusive, 5 star gourmet food and your own butler (ambassador). Service was impeccable - waiters literally wading into the Caribbean to see if you wanted another drink while floating on a hammock!

Hammock Cove will exceed every expectation even after reading every review. The staff, the management, the grounds, the food... The list can go on and on. Every bit of it works and is done at a VERY high level. We visited with 3 couples and they took time to accommodate our party at each turn. The SOUTHERN 6 will be back to visit this resort in the future. Don’t read anymore reviews. This is where you need to book.

Sorry about the lengthy review that follows—we extensively research vacations and find the TripAdvisor reviews helpful to select a place that is right for us. We had the pleasure of staying at Hammock Cove in April of 2021 when our other travel plans fell through. COVID protocols were in place, and we were tested at home before our trip and conveniently at the resort the day before our departure per CDC requirements. At Hammock Cove we dined inside for the first time in a year and we felt safe throughout our trip due to the cleaning protocols in place and the compliance of both the staff and other guests. Our stay was incredible, and we recommend Hammock Cove for almost anyone who is looking for a luxury vacation without stress. Travel: We took the required COVID test in the United States before travelling and found the United States was actually more lax with COVID restrictions than Antigua. The lines through customs and immigration in Antigua were extremely well-organized and professionally run. When travel opens up to the UK, we would expect the lines to be longer and slower. We didn’t prearrange transportation to the resort and took a taxi from the stand at the airport. The taxi stand is set up similar to most taxi stands at airports in the United States (but on a smaller scale). The taxi rides to resorts are at fixed rates to the different resorts, so we didn’t have to worry about negotiating a fee. Our taxi driver, Mario (“Super Mario”) was great. He followed COVID protocols and wore a mask the entire time, opened the windows on the way to the resort (which was good for my wife who gets car sick), and also greeted us with a cold Wadadli and Ting after our long flight. He had good humor about the long drive and the rocky unpaved last part of the “road” to the resort, and told us about sites and the culture along the way. I got his phone number and was able to book him later in the week to take me to a dive shop in English Harbour, back to the resort after the dive, and we also had him drive us on our return trip to the airport. On the day of my dive when we were trying to pick up something at breakfast before leaving, we passed by a taxi. It turned out it was Mario. He had arrived a half hour early because he didn’t want to chance my being late and missing my dive! He was also waiting for me after my dive so I didn’t have to spend time calling and waiting for transportation. The pandemic really hurt the tourist industry in Antigua, so it was good to help them with some business. I would recommend that if you like your taxi driver to get his card and use him for trips during the week if you have a need—and, of course, tip well. I highly recommend Mario who was brilliant. Resort: The resort is set up with rooms all facing the bay with the Lighthouse and Nobody Knows rum bar set a little further back, the pool area is above the beach and is where Irina’s is located as well. The pool area has three tiers of infinity pools down to the beach. Loungers (with umbrellas for shade) were always available, although some people did “claim” ones they wanted well before they would use them. The resort as a whole is new, beautiful, clean and well-kept. The atmosphere at the bar and beach/pool area really depends on the current guest crowd. For the most part, it is a relaxed fun atmosphere, and there is a space for everyone, with a choice of three bars, a self-serve lounge, and the beach. The location on a bay ensures no “red flag” days and there are the usual nonmotorized watersports on the beach and some snorkeling. The resort is adjacent to Devil’s Bridge which makes for a short walk to stunning views. Because it is a small resort and there isn’t much entertainment, your stay can be guest dependent, but the resort is big enough (and the rooms nice enough) that you can “escape” from loud guests by going to another area or back to your room for some tranquility. We aren’t sure how much of the atmosphere we experienced was influenced by COVID (mostly American guests, some whom had been originally booked at different Elite Island resorts) or how much would change if Verandah, which is a family resort located nearby, was open. Also, we have come to expect mosquitos, sand fleas, etc. during our trips to the Caribbean and there were no bothersome insects—absolutely none (nor did we see any insecticide spraying). Rooms: The rooms are amazing with a plunge pool, a deck overlooking the ocean, a wet bar that is fully stocked, comfortable bed, and a huge luxurious shower. The pictures will give you some idea, but really don’t do the rooms justice--they are absolutely beautiful. We really wanted to see the open ocean from our room. Our reservation specialist and travel angel Tina with Elite Island Resorts arranged for us to have the perfect room that overlooked the bay on the ocean side where we could hear the waves gently crashing into the shore. We left the sliding glass doors open overnight, turned off the air conditioner, and went to sleep and woke up to the sound of the ocean. I’m sure all of the rooms are great. We would only warn guests about the rooms that are adjacent to the pool as there is a trade-off between proximity to the pool, beach, and daytime action and the increased noise and “traffic” as almost all of the guests would be walking by your deck as they head to the beach and pools. Service: Hammock Cove is a luxury resort that prides itself on service. Upon check-in, we met our two ambassadors and were given a cell phone to contact them during the day and evening for whatever we needed. With COVID restrictions in place, guests rely heavily on their ambassadors, but we found the ambassador service to be a bit uneven—some guests related great stories of above and beyond service, others had difficulty having the simplest request fulfilled. While the ambassador program needs a bit more work and training, we found that most staff members went out of their way to ensure our stay was amazing. Service at the restaurants was professional and friendly. There was also good service during the day at the beach, with staff members setting up ice water at the loungers and plenty of attendants bringing drinks and snacks down to guests throughout the day. Julio and the other staff members are rock stars down there, running up and down the four flights of stairs all day bringing food and drinks to guests (all while carrying trays of food and drinks, in the heat, with masks on). Food/Drink: Breakfast and lunch are served at Irina’s, though all meals can also be served on the patio of your room as well, with slightly different room service menu for lunch. We took our lunch at Irina’s, though many guests had lunch served to their loungers on the beach or pool deck. Dinner was available at Irina’s, but we ate at Lighthouse every night. Reservations were required for dinner at Lighthouse as they have limited seating for each time slot, although this may have been influenced by COVID protocols. There is a seven-course meal served Wednesday at Lighthouse. Since most guests attend, you’ll want to ensure that is reserved on your arrival. Breakfast meals were so good, it was hard not to eat too much early in the morning. Lunch had a standing menu with small changes based on availability. Despite the limited variety, during our seven-night stay, I never even got around to trying the burger which we heard was excellent. Dinner at Lighthouse was the star. The staff at Lighthouse was incredible from start to finish for each of the dinners we had at this white tablecloth restaurant. Chef Marco does some amazing things based on what is available. We saw him and complimented him on the seven-course meal. His enthusiasm for his craft was obvious as he told us the secrets behind some of his dishes (sous vide for the best preparation of duck we’ve ever had, compression technique for flavor infusion). We also understand that when things open more on the island, some guests can choose to eat at The Verandah Resort & Spa or Pineapple Beach Club, but considering the quality of Lighthouse, I can’t imagine missing one of their 5-star meals. The atmosphere at the bars can swing from appreciating the artistry of a well-crafted complex cocktail to a group doing shots, and we understand it may get a little more raucous when COVID restrictions are further lifted and they are allowed to stay open later at night. We were welcomed to Hammock Cove by Lorenzo who created personalized cocktails, which were just what we needed upon arrival to the resort. We loved Nobody Knows for their amazing rum cocktails, impromptu rum tasting, and casual vibe with the masterful mixologist, Eric. Lighthouse Bar served incredible drinks before and after dinner. Jojo and Andre both together and when working alone managed to hold down the fort at Lighthouse bar (which is no easy task since the bar provides the wine, beer and cocktails simultaneously for dinner guests and guests enjoying cocktails at the bar). They had great attitudes and skill, and seemed unfazed when dinner guests ordered novelty cocktails that required multiple steps to prepare, only to barely drink them. Other Activities: We did use the gym which had well-maintained and clean equipment. We had to make reservations because of COVID protocols but it was nicely appointed and quiet, located adjacent to the spa. Hammock Cove has two pickleball courts which were well-used during our entire stay and a fun way to exercise off some food and drink calories. We did not go on any of the resort-sponsored excursions, but I did go into English Harbour to Dive Carib for a 2-tank dive. I had an amazing dive and would highly recommend that company. At the beach there are non-motorized watersports. (If watersports aren’t your thing, there are floating rings near the beach that are nice and relaxing, especially since there is drink service to them!) There is an attendant who is available to take guests who can’t sail out on the Hobie cats or help teach paddle boarding. Pedalboarding was fun but unfortunately there was only one because the other was broken and parts are hard to come by. During our stay there was also only one stand-up paddleboard available, but I think that is probably corrected by now. Kayaks with one or two seats are available as well. There is walk-in snorkeling and conch can be found in the bay—if you bring conch back the chef can prepare them for you. There is better snorkeling around the corner in the bay towards Devil’s Bridge. We also took a walk over to Long Bay Beach which is near Hammock Cove’s sister property, Pineapple Beach Club. It’s just over a mile walk from Hammock Cove and has even better walk-in snorkeling than the snorkeling at Hammock Cove. When we were headed there one day, Rob Barrett offered us a ride in his golf cart. We didn’t know he was the Chairman of Elite Island Vacations at first and had a wonderful conversation and tour of the remodel happening at The Verandah Resort & Spa and then a tour of Pineapple Beach Club. It was great to see and hear his passion around the resorts and what they are doing to continue to make them all excellent destinations. We had a wonderful, relaxing vacation at Hammock Cove, which was just what we needed. As repeat customers of Elite Island Resorts, we can say that Hammock Cove is certainly the crown jewel of their properties and worthy of all of the 5-star reviews it has received!
