We returned to Hawksbill after a gap of 10 years so was looking forward to see what it was like now and if it still lived up to our expectations, boy it exceeded them! Okay it won’t be for everybody as it is a complete cut off from reality an oasis of sorts, I feel it’s more

Average resort at best. Upon checking in we were told that our room was not ready this must have been what everyone was told due to the amount of luggage being stored at the front desk. No check in welcome cocktail which is typical of most all inclusive resorts. Dining options

Hello and thank you for taking the time to post a a review of your stay at Hawksbill. We are pleased that you did enjoy our beaches during your stay, as our greatest defining feature is our 4 lovely beaches. I do apologize that we fell below your expectations and that your holiday was not as amazing as we would have wanted it to be. The challenges that you encountered at check in are not reflective of our typical, welcoming service and it is most regrettable that this was your experience. It was our pleasure to take care of you, and should you return to Antigua we do hope that you will consider Hawksbill.

I think the key to enjoying your stay at Hawksbill is going in with the right expectations. This is not a luxury, gourmet resort with hopping night life, but the accommodations are nice and a good value, quiet and relaxing, and the beaches are great. We had no problems at all

Hello and thank you for taking the time to post a review of your stay at Hawksbill by Rex Resorts. We are pleased that you had a very good stay as this is what we want above all else for our guests. We are a very authentic Antiguan resort with much to offer and pleased that you enjoyed so much during your stay. It is true that expectations are a large factor in a guests overall experience, so if someone is expecting a generic marble and glass resort with 5 restaurants, and over crowded beaches then they will be disappointed. But should they expect authentic, charming, uncrowded beaches, clean and cozy rooms then this will be an amazing experience. It was truly our pleasure to take care of you both and we do look forward to welcoming you back to Hawksbill very soon.

Wow! Great value! Rooms located close to beach. Serene. Quiet. Love the sugar mill and the wandering goats on the property. I would recommend this place for travelers due to the view and price. It is an older resort so keep that in mind, and charming.

We went to Hawksbill with an open mind as some of the reviews are so poor. It's not a 5 star hotel it's a very relaxed Caribbean style just the place to chill. The good is of a good standard just a little repetitive and the evening entertainment was ok. We loved it, just the

We too had issues with water to our rooms & in fact suffered for 8 days of our stay. The management are incapable of maintaining the resort & it appears that it has been an ongoing issue for many many years. They actually closed in 2015 & carried out some works but then don’t appear to have done much else. We have many pictures showing the poor state of repair throughout the property including photos illustrating stagnant water under our first room. We had flies & bad smells but were told it was nothing. Don’t go unless you like getting back to basics!!!!

We have been involved in a compensation claim with them since the 17th December & a getting no positive answers. Whilst at the resort we were lied to by the management & am not surprised at the way you have been treated. We took numerous pictures to show how dilapated & run Dow the resorts is. Perhaps a complaint to your credit card company is the best way forward?

Hi, We had a rental car so not sure how far on a transfer, but it's not far, maybe 45 minutes. Small in tact shells can be found on the far end of Eden beach when the tide is going down.

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

"Some returnees chose NOT to have sea view rooms because of the noise of the tide,"
"One that has been renovated (probably one on the beach) - the rest are pretty dire!"
"Beach bungalows "
"Take snacks with you so if they run out of food at dinner you have something to eat. "
"The bungalows are updated and beautiful!"
