Great location, decent hotel amenities

For the location, you would be hard pressed to find a more beautiful spot. Great beaches, sandy bottom and greenery abounds. The hotel itself feels a bit dates and the rooms, common areas need a facelift. The breakfast and lunches were good, dinner could have been tastier. I found the staff to be courteous and easy going. We came here to get away and lay on the beach and were very happy. -D

Quiet and friendly paradise.

Wonderful taste of Antigua. Lovely grounds, terrific beaches, great food and gracious and caring hosts made for a truly special holiday. Don't go if you expect glitz, air conditioning and 24/7 activity, but if you want to meet great people and relax this is your place! We will go back.

just what I needed

Great place to do nothing and just plain relax, read and go to the beach. Highlight is the CO beach, met very nice people, 50+. THis is a place to unwind, not a party place very friendly people / staff. Some what a throw back to an older time, no TV and somewhat dated facilities but will return as I have done three times now........Enjoy

perfect for me

hawksbill is all about a beautiful location, friendly staff and interesting guests. it is just sunshine and pleasant conversation. it does not have a bustling night life. it is more intimate than that. beach books and a beverage.

Very Relaxing.

My wife and I just returned from spending a week at Hawksbill. As other reviews have mentioned, the resort is a little dated, but I thought it was very well maintained. We had no problems with things not working and they keep the entire resort very clean. The location is fantastic. It's situated by itself and feels very private. There are no other resorts very close by and the week we where there (Valentines day week), the resort was only about 2/3 full. The beaches were never crowded and there was no problem finding good beach chairs. As far as the beaches go, they are all beautiful, but Eden beach (the 4th beach) is by far the best. It's the biggest and has more shady spots than the others. The only thing I felt that was less than great about Hawksbill was the inconsistency of some of the staff. Many were very friendly and seemed to enjoy what they were doing and really made the effort to insure the guests were happy. However, there were some who seemed to be just slogging through another boring day and really did not appear to be at all interested in whether you were having a good time or whether you needed a drink refill. The lunch staff at the SeaGrapes restaurant/bar seemed to be the least enthusiastic. Most of the guests we met while we were at Hawksbill where from England and seemed to be in the age range of 55-65. Not as many younger people as some of the other resorts we've been to in the past. My wife and I decided we were going to rent a car and drive around the island for a day. If you've never driven on the left side of the road (like in England), Antigua is not the place to try it for the first time. The roads are very narrow, not well marked, and road maintenance is non-existent. If you're driving from Hawksbill to any place else on the Island, you have to go through downtown St. Johns (there's no other way as it's the only road to Hawksbill) The streets in town are some of the worst roads I have ever been on. We ended up blowing out a tire when we hit a pot-hole coming up to a traffic light in St. Johns. We changed the tire and turned around and went back to the resort. Way too stressful for a vacation that was supposed to be relaxing. We ended up doing a full day sightseeing tour of the island with a local jeep tour operator named "Shelley". He was great and my wife and I really enjoyed the day. Overall, if you're looking for a great place to sit by the beach, read a book and relax, I would recommend Hawksbill. Don't go there looking for 4-star accommodations and lots to do.

Rest and relaxation.

We have been going to Hawksbill for many years and when we arrive we are greeted a with Welcome Home, not welcome back. If you are looking for excitement, a lot of activities and night life this is not the place for you. If you are looking for the perfect place to relax and recharge this is the perfect place. 4 beautiful beaches, bungalow style rooms, and a staff this is second to none. Hawksbill is the only place to get away from it all, just lay back and enjoy. If you want to explore the island grab a taxi or rent a car for a day or two. Go into town (20 minutes away), get lost in the rain forest, or find a deserted beach,Antigua has 365 of them and they are all beautiful. If you go in August attend the carnival, 10 days of music and dancing. We are already planning our next visit.

perfect quiet relaxation

This was our second visit. While it needs upgrades (bathrooms especially) and the accommodations are simple, yet comfortable, for us needing total peace, quiet, no outside contact, no TV or newspapers, yet wifi, adequate closets and drawers, safe, and lovely porch, it has a certain "I don't know what" that attracts repeat visitors in droves. Not elegant or imposing, yet friendly and welcoming. Not glitzy by any stretch, it also doesn't attract the self-centered, self absorbed types we need to escape.
