Our Opinion
If you like beaches and are a non-smoker this resort will probably be perfect for you. The Hawksbill has four secluded beach to choose from with one of them being clothing optional. The resort is also non-smoking in most of the main areas. Service is hit and miss and the rooms are nicely maintained. A good choice for couples but not a lot of activities for children.

Overview
Hawksbill is a unique and special Caribbean hideaway that you won't want to leave. Set in 37 acres of landscaped tropical gardens, the resort offers its guests a choice of four secluded beaches, including Antigua's only 'clothing optional' beach. So if you love the beach, Hawksbill by Rex Resorts is the perfect place for you.

Location: Located on four secluded beaches, 15 minute drive from St. Johns and the airport.

Total refurb required

When we arrived the views were wonderful from then in went rapidly downhill!the staff were friendly and helpful and took us to our allotted garden view bungalow ,when we got the it overlooked a deralict tennis court over grown and used as a dumping ground.We then entered the room which was dark,totally worn out,dishevelled including the bed and bedding.The bathroom was the same we immediately told we were not prepared to accept a room of this condition,no air con either!We returned to the reception to speak to the manager and was offered a drink.We spoke to other residents who said that it was shoddy and the food was some what mediocre.After speaking to the manager he he could not offer me another room,I asked him what was the alternative he arranged for us to go to a sister hotel the Halycon Cove ,he was very polite I got the feeling that this was a regular occurrence.He arranged a taxi and we left.It was obviously very disappointing after the long journey,the views were out of this world but it cannot be at the cost of adequate accommodation,with a location I really don't know why the hotel don't totally refurb it and take advantage.Avoid until major refurb has taken place!

mixed reports, but overall a lovely stay

Parts of this resort are well worth a 5, but others probably only a 3. We loved the setting, the welcome, the amazing staff, the constant crash of the waves and the simplicity , but comfort of our chalet. However the facilities of the resort are limited and the food was good but not exceptional.

Just don't.

We went to hawks head on a $60 per person day pass. The receptionist said " full use of facilities. All inclusive lunch and afternoon tea. Use of the 5 beaches and unlimited drinks. That sounded like good value. We paid and went in. OMG. this place is unbelievable for all of the wrong reasonsFurther more virgin holidays actually recommend it !!!! My opinion of virgin changed in that instant. Imagine a 40 year old holiday camp that hadn't been updated in 40 years. Well.... this is that,only worse. The place appears idyllic but it's a disgrace. Seriously do not waste your hard earned money staying here. We were fortunate and could drive away at anytime .... and we did. The people staying there were stuck. I feel sorry for them. Read the bad reviews and most of them accurately sum up this place. After that it's your choice. You were warned !!!

Chic..a little shabby...but a definite go back place.

We've just spent 10 days at Hawksbill ...and now seven days later I want to go back. It's not a pristine glassy hotel, it's a sprawling array of bungalows and rooms..shabby chic springs to mind. It has modern renovated rooms on the beach and around the Cove..and it's so relaxing. Tree frogs and crashing waves can keep you awake at night..but only when you return home do you realise how much you miss it.The food's varied and wholesome..the entertainment is limited but traditional..and the guests are regulars who go year after year. The staff are fabulous. Felicia, Cameron, Cory, Melissa, Axxia, David, VIncent, Millie, Gabrielle andBig Dale...I wish I can remember them all..are fabulous. All inclusive..Italian wines .. known spirits. And local beers. I'm going back for sure!!.

Fantastic location but very old very tired rooms

We stayed here on the first leg of our 2017 England ODI cricket tour. The location is superb the grounds and the beaches, but the hotel rooms are very old and tired. We were A.I., the food and drink was OK and the serving staff were pretty good, however our room was a 'Superior garden view room' which had a partial sea view but the room was NOT SUPERIOR and very basic, they need a serious upgrade. We were awakened at 6.00 most mornings by goats bleating and sometimes agricultural machinery. We had issues with room cleanliness, shower function and lack of hot water, these were solved quite quickly but the broken room safe took 2 days to solve. We had a great time on our holiday but that was more about the people we met on our tour, and not our experience of the hotel.
