We recently returned from 2 weeks at Hawksbill. The resort was better that we had hoped for. If you are looking for a relaxing resort where you can unwind and get away from it all this is the place. Great food, great location, great resort & staff = Great vacation. All the staff will do anything they can to make...

Probably the most naturally beautiful place I have ever been. Typically for a Rex resort, the buildings are a bit tired, but the staff are friendly, the food is good (the grilled blue marlin is a special treat), the drinks are full-strength, and the surroundings are truly beautiful. Hurry though, as sadly the lease runs out in afew months, and...

We just returned from a second visit Jan21-28th (The Ontario 4(was 8 last year).We were treated royally as returning guests. The staff, Germaine, David, Latoya, Millie, and everyone else were just so wonderful and a credit to Richards staff. We hope that the lease is renewed so that we can come back to the same superb service. Good luck Richard...

Jan. 17th - Jan 26th 2010 At first glance it doesn't look like much of a resort, its small there's not a lot of buildings or bars. However once your there a couple of days you find you have everything you need. The staff are very friendly, the food is good, the drinks are NOT watered down (beware). The rooms...

The location was excellent. We found 'all inclusive' very good value. The staff were friendly and relaxed and this had a good influence on the guests too. The bungalow was a reasonable size, though on occasion, a phone would have been useful and more lighting, particularly over the bed would have been a definite asset. Overall we loved Hawksbill and...

Just back from a 13 night stay. We can't stop looking at the photo's. We had a great time. The rooms are basic but comfortable, there is everything you need. We had a Superior Seafront Bungalow and it was on Seagrapes Beach which was perfect. We found it hard for the first couple of days without aircon, but the ceiling...

the week was perfect in every way... the room, the food, the service and of course the beaches and the great water. Hawksbill is not a brand new resort but they have great experience in treating guests the right way. They seem to anticipate your every need. If you are looking for a quiet, spiritual get-away to do as little...

We've travelled to the Caribbean a great deal, but the Hawksbill is probably the best place we've stayed, overall. Granted, this is a slightly older property, meaning it could use a little "freshening" perhaps. But the location is spectacular, the layout offers vistas in every direction no matter where you are, the food was plentiful, delicious, and certainly well above...

Rex Hawksbill is located on the N.W. (Caribbean) shore less than 10 km from the airport and half that from St Johns. Located on part of a family sugar plantation, it has a long beach area - composed of 4 smaller beaches with natural rock points separating them. While all Antiguan beaches are 'public property, this one is very private...
