My partner has always wanted to visit the Caribbean (I've already been to Barbados and St Lucia) so after researching over Christmas we chose Antigua. We travelled the day after his 40th birthday. After both experiencing a reasonable amount of stress in our lives recently the two top criteria for our holiday were location and relaxation. After being to Barbados...

But that was wrong advice, what a great holiday we had, very laid back and relaxing. The Travel Agent said that we would enjoy it but the resort wasnt up to much...expect plastic chairs and tired fittings....well we had all of those things and the occasional problems with the plumbing BUT we had lots of things that were much better...

DO NOT go to this hotel if you want chic, class, elegance, luxury, pampering, world class cuisine or refinement. DO go if you want simple accommodation, beautiful beaches, lovely grounds, friendly and attentive staff, total relaxation, no hassle holiday. We have just arrived back for the Hawksbill having spent 11 nights there 8-21 May 2010. We were originally “upgraded” to...

After much consideration we decided on this resort and after out stay and exploring the island we are very glad we did. Yes the resort is a little tired and could be up dated, but would this spoil its characture ? If you want a complete rest and to be pampered by very friendly staff who were always willing to...

This is not a 5 star hotel, so don't expect i to be. It is a little "tired" and Rex could do with updrading all the rooms with air con as some only have ceiling fans. Rex could also spend some money on their bug screens as the little blighters sometimes get in! However, having said that, this is a...

Yes the hotel throughout does need some loving care on the decor etc. however this lack of décor is more then made up for with the attitude of the staff. David on the bar is coolness personified - his daily greeting was fantastic and the smile from Latoya would brighten up the darkest day. All the staff were very polite...

We've been to Hawksbill every year since 2004 and always say we love it for what it doesn't have, TVs, power sports, telephones etc. But that really isn't fair because what really brings us back is what it has. And that is an amazing staff of friendly smiling people. We enjoy having our wine glasses filled by the same folks...
