Just came back from a great week at the hawksbill. The good great location, amazing beaches, and good rooms. Food is decent but if you're a vegetarian choices are limited. Chefs do make an effort to accommodate however. No gym, pool is really a splash pool for kids, no beach activities Overall we loved our stay at the hawksbill. It is a beautiful location Very peaceful which is exactly what we were looking for. They advised us to drink bottled water on the resort but they ran out for two days over the weekend. The bad The bugs. The bug problem was terrible with everyone being eaten alive. They do not spray which I have seen at other resorts so it is pretty bad.

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.
