Just returned from a 2 week stay at Hawksbill. My boyfriend and I where a bit concerned to begin with, as we though we might find the resort too quite and remote. Far from it. We had a wonderful time, this is the perfect resort to unwind and relax in. Our room was very basic but adequate. We had great views of the beach and sea. We did find that we had a few little visitors during the night. Mainly a field mouse with a craving for Coffee Mate and a couple of lizards. Nothing that you wouldn't expect from a tropical hotel. We found that the ceiling fans gave off plenty of cool air and we where never too hot. Staff where at times a bit moody but on a whole we found them to be very friendly and helpfull, just have to take their attitude with a large pinch of salt.
Food in the main restaurant in the evening was fantastic, wasn't too kean on the new Italian al la carte. Lunch was our favourite with the BBQ open from 1230 till 1500hrs. The main bar in the evening closed at 11pm which we where very shocked about. But the staff do leave a plentiful supply of beer and wine behind the counter that we found on our 2nd night every one just helped themselves too. Towards the end of our stay hotel was begining to get alot busier and they extended opening hours till mid-night. Even so being an all-inclusive you would expect them to stay late alot longer. We also hired a jeep for a couple of days. Which is a fantastic and safe way to see the island. Don't use the car hire company at front of hotel. As we had a compelte nightmare with them. Instead we got reception to phone Hertz who where same cost and will deliver and collect vehicle. All in all in would say this was one of the best holidays i've ever had. You can't beat the location or landscape of this property. Breathtaking views, peaceful, relaxing.
With 4 beaches to choose from you are never without a sunlounger. Don't go here if you want a lively hotel with lots of entertainment. Do go here if you want an away from it all relaxing break.
