The view, the beaches and the sunsets saved the trip! (And two very friendly and helpful staff) The "Two Color" photocopied welcome packet on a worn out photocopier tell the story. Nothing more required.

We have just returned from one week at Hawksbill having read the varied previous reviews. First, the good. It really is a wonderful location. The atmosphere is laid back and usually peaceful. Most of the staff are pleasant and helpful. We slavered ourselves with 50% Deet

The hotel staff were amazing!! All of them were warm and welcoming. I traveled during Christmas time and they made me feel like I was with family. Anything we asked they offered to assist. The food was delicious and all the servers were attentive. The bartenders were friendly

What can I say. Awful place. Loyal customers rave about it. All I can say is they obviously are not used to proper hotel resorts! We stayed on a bungalow on the beach. Spacious accommodation and that's all I can say positively. Bedding wasn't changed once during our 16 night

Hello and thank you for taking the time to post a review of your stay at Hawksbill by Rex Resorts. It is most unfortunate that your stay with us did not meet your expectations, I do apologize for that. We must complete several Health and Safety Audits annually with different tour operators and with the Ministry of Health. I can assure you that we have met the requirements and hold the safety and well being of our guests as a matter of paramount importance. In regards regards to all of the other concerns raised I did check our logs and the only concern noted was of feeling unwell due to a flu. Had you made your most serious concerns known while on property we would have gone above and beyond to correct the challenges and hopefully conclude your stay on positive note. We do value and appreciate all of our guests, repeaters or first time visitors and it is always our pleasure to take care of them.

Great stay yet again, nice to meet a lot of old friends. The resort does need a bit of TLC but most importantly it needs something done about the water problem....maybe a desalination plant is in order. All staff we met were friendly, courteous and mostly had a smile on their

It’s a small resort but does have 141 rooms. We are awaiting departure hopefully tomorrow as we have now had No water I often twice a day for 8 days. The stay has been stressful so we may not be here when your friends arrive. Kind regards Lloyd & Valerie

Just read a review about RATS ??? In room anybody else experienced this ?
The rats & snakes have been eliminated from the resort by the introduction of mongoose. These may have been mistaken for rats. The main issues are water loss every day & sewage leakage from the farm behind the resort. This is currently being denied by the resort. But they give you so many excuses as to the numerous problems in this shanty town. We have tried to return to the UK for the last 6 days but our travel agent & the local agent have completely ignored our request & we have to suffer an additional 2 days before we can go home. It’s amazing to see the rave reviews so these people have obviously not experienced the hell we have !!!

Hi. We were there for two weeks in September we did not see any rats and we were also staying in the Royal Palm beach bungalows. I'm sure if anyone had seen rats before our stay then it would have been written on TripAdvisor. Enjoy your stay.

Does the property have a shop for bottled water, snacks etc
Hi, you can purchase bottled water from the bar then refil them from the water containers that are situated in the main reception area or the bar area on Sea Grapes beach.
