We travel every year and still curious enough to try new places in the world. So far the choices we made, never led to disappointments. To travel with an open mind and readiness to imbrace other cultures is a must.
If we return to Antigua, it would be Hawksbill.
Four beautiful beaches, especially Eden beach: A truly natural setting. Not crowded, easy to find a lounging chair. The safest to enter the ocean was on the far right (2nd palm tree). Even on red flag days, this corner was protected and we went ocean swimming every day. This is by far the nicest naturist beach we have visited, quieter than Orient beach.
We had the Superior room in the main building, comfortable for 2 weeks, good closet space, good ventilation, most nights we turned off the ceiling fan. Rooms were kept clean, but late cleaning daily. Furnishing was simple. New, clean beach towels daily.
No line ups. We really enjoyed the sit down dinners 4 times a week. Enough variety not to get bored and more important never had an upset stomach. Even at lunch we mostly chose sit-down. Try the chicken roti, from the grill the fresh fish. The house wines were from Argentina and Chile, we enjoyed the red and the rose. The glasses never got empty. My husband liked the native Wadadli beer. Very fast and friendly service at the bars. At breakfast we always sit further in, not to be bothered by the birds.
Friendly, accommodating and still elegant. Led by an outstanding Manager Richard, he talks to all the guests, by asking if everything is alright, and how we are enjoying our stay. So many long time employees, who were all exceptional; like Silvia, Sandy, Adrian,Agatha, David, Foster, Jo-Ann, Rotalinda, Latoya etc.. We highly recommend to take the garden tour with Silvia.
95% from UK, great sense of humor and well mannered. The rest was made up by Canadians, Americans, Germans. If you take the effort, it is very easy to make new friends, and dinner partners.
Remember: There is only one international language "SMILE".
