We had fun and remember it is a 3 star resort. The rooms and beds are cozy small but clean, the 4 beaches add variety but most end up at the naturist beach. The nightlife ain’t the 70’s or the 80’s with most heading to bed by 11pm. We danced a bit on Saturday night, however, mayb

I’m writing this from the Hawksbill hotel. Fabulous location , great room and lovely food. It is in the tropics so expect everything that a tropical climate brings.
To the person who complained about rats. They are not rats but mongooses.

I’m really surprised by some of these reviews, yes there are mosquitos and no it’s not the staffs fault! It’s not news that they have them take sprays and citronella room candles and vapours are available. They are also having the worst drought in their history, it’s not an excus

This was our 4th time in Antigua, which we love, and decided to try a new resort. I'm really not sure how people can give this resort a positive review. I read them and wonder if they were in the same place!! First I will go with what was positive which was the location and the b

Hello and thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay at Hawksbill. It is most unfortunate that your stay with us fell below your expectations and we do apologize for that. We did indeed try our best to assist in any way that we could and we are very pleased that your phone was returned to you before you departed. I am however a bit confused as having spoken with you both multiple times you both insisted that you were having a great stay despite misplacing your phone, later found in the safe of the first room you occupied. It would have been to the benefit of yourselves and the hotel had you stated your lack of enjoyment as it would have our pleasure to take note of any special requests to ensure that you both had a wonderful holiday.

We visited the Hawksbill on a day trip (from Halcyon) and loved the change of scenery. The food was good though not as varied as the Halcyon. The beaches were lovely and the staff attentive. First time seeing a family of Mongoose also !

Hello Mr. Adam, and thank you for taking the time to post a review of your day trip to Hawksbill. We are always pleased to take care of the guests from our sister property Halcyon Cove. Hawksbill can be likened to her quiet and laid back sister, where relaxation is the order of the day. We do encourage you to return again should you feel like beach hopping, as it was our pleasure to take care of you both, even though just for one day.

Just read a review about RATS ??? In room anybody else experienced this ?
The rats & snakes have been eliminated from the resort by the introduction of mongoose. These may have been mistaken for rats. The main issues are water loss every day & sewage leakage from the farm behind the resort. This is currently being denied by the resort. But they give you so many excuses as to the numerous problems in this shanty town. We have tried to return to the UK for the last 6 days but our travel agent & the local agent have completely ignored our request & we have to suffer an additional 2 days before we can go home. It’s amazing to see the rave reviews so these people have obviously not experienced the hell we have !!!

Please help me I have just read a review on TripAdvisor saying that they had rats in there room is this true, I am very concerned about this because we have booked next year for a holiday at this hotel, never in all my experience travelling abroad to the Caribbean Islands have l experience rats.
Hi. We were there for two weeks in September we did not see any rats and we were also staying in the Royal Palm beach bungalows. I'm sure if anyone had seen rats before our stay then it would have been written on TripAdvisor. Enjoy your stay.

Does the property have a shop for bottled water, snacks etc
Hi, you can purchase bottled water from the bar then refil them from the water containers that are situated in the main reception area or the bar area on Sea Grapes beach.
