Many guests that we met during our enjoyable ten day stay, have returned here an unbelievable number of times; in some cases 20 plus times! The hotel must tick all the boxes for a lot of people, but I wonder whether they realise that there are many other places in the world to enjoy that are as good if not...

We spent a week at Hawksbill years ago, before the Rex company took it over. We had fond memories of the beautiful beach out front, the steel drum band and vocalist singing and playing out in the open during dinner, and the pleasant staff. Our memories must have clouded over on that last point, because now we found the service...

In January we returned to the Hawksbill for the eleventh time. My son came for his third visit. Everything was perfect. The gardens are superb. Wonderful scenery. The staff are excellent and so helpful. It is a wonderful place to relax. There is always plenty of space on the beaches. Good food, clean rooms (if a little "tired") and to...

Without the wonderful hard working smiling antiguans who work there it would not be the same. The best thing about this place is that it is geared for total relaxation and the grounds are...

All I can do is echo all the other positive reviews - lovely staff, great food, free flowing drink - in fact a little bit too free flowing, one whole evening of our holiday has been wiped out of our memories due to too much rum punch at lunchtime - we have the wonderfull Millie to thank for that !!!!!....

We just returned from the Hawksbill and enjoyed our stay there. We were on one of the planes that was diverted due to the volcano dome collapse on FEb 11th and even with the unexpected and unwanted return to Toronto and second flight out on the 12th it was a fantastic holiday. So even with spending 11 hours one day...

This was our third trip to Hawksbill - once again, we found it to be the perfect holiday destination for us. The staff at Hawksbill are very customer focussed and we were allocated our favourite room on the Royal Palm Beach once again. The food is good, the house wine of a good standard and the views from the restaurant...

If you want a taste of real Antigua with great food, great service and idyllic surroundings this is the place to stay. My wife and I wanted a genuine experience of Caribbean people and culture - we certainly were not disappointed. The resort celebrates its 50th year this year, and to be honest probably not much has change since its...
