Friendliest staff who provided excellent service. The beach is beautiful and if you want to just be on the beach, this is the perfect location. The rooms are very simple and leave somewhat to be desired. Additionally, the mattresses are very thin and uncomfortable. A 3 star hotel, a good bang for your buck based on the beach alone.

Great place for a quiet getaway. Best snorkeling on Antigua from the beach. Four beaches to chose from. Great scenery. The food is very good to excellent with many choices. They have live entertainment during the week. I really like this place. It's not Sandals, but that's the point. Service is excellent.

Great location in Antigua. The resort has 4 beaches and one is clothing optional. The beaches and water were great and snorkeling was good right from the beach. The food was good with a lot of options. I don't understand any of the previous complaints about the food. The wine and drinks were also very good and varied. The staff was very experienced and very friendly, always wanting to help. The clientele were older, but had lots of great stories and experiences. We arranged massages, cruises, diving, and a helicopter ride right from the hotel and had no problems booking. One downside is the taxi fares are expensive traveling around the island, but they do wait around or will rerun to pick you up, we never had to wait on a taxi. Diving and snorkeling were fun and we saw sharks, rays, and many types of fish. The resort is dated and could use a renovation, which is scheduled for this Summer. If you can get over some of the worn feel of this place, you will have a wonderful time and meet a lot of great folks. The mosquitos do get to be a problem in the rooms atet the rain. I would go back and miss it already.

Wow! Hawksbill Resort is a hidden treasure. Spectacular 4 beaches and extremely private. It was like having our own slice of the Caribbean. The resort needs some upgrades. However the views and grounds are wonderful! We stayed in the water front Beach Club cottage facing Sea Grape Beach. It was basic shabby chic, but very comfortable and the view from the king bed; no words can capture the paradice. This resort is not for the party night life, it's for the escape to serenity people! Staff and accommodation were nice. It's rumored the resort is closing for 6 mos for upgrades. We plan to return and recommend Hawksbill for those who seek peace and serenity in Antigua!
