Have been at Hawksbill Resort in Antigua for 2 weeks at the end of January 2012, booked through an Italian tour operator. Resort is located at the northwest part of the island, so one must pass through St. John to drive anywhere.
In front of the hotel there are 4 beaches, pone is the only nude beach in Antigua: not the best beaches of the isle, but nice anyway as the sunset there is incredible. Sunbeds available in all beaches. Even if there are about 80 rooms, beaches are not crowded at all.
Rooms are located in 2 big buildings and to several small cottages in the garden. A complete renovation is absolutely needed as rooms/bathrooms are old. There's no TV, but sincerely who cares? The place is windy so air contitioning is not needed. Also garden view rooms have view to the sea. A lot of mosquitos everywhere. As there are no glass windows rooms are noisy, as one hears animals and the sea all night long.
2 restaurants, one for breakfast/dinner and the Grill for lunch. Food is great, with variety and good level. Staff is friendly and helpful.
Beach towel can be changed every day to the laundry (staff there absolutely unfriendly) at fixed times.
Excursions/taxis/rental cars can be easily booked at the reception.
All inclusive include meals and all beverages including cocktails. During dinner every night there are some simple music shows until 10pm. Most of guests are elderly English people staying there for 2-3 weeks, some Italians and a few Americans that overnight for 2 or 3 nights.
