Very disappointed. We went to celebrate a friends 60th Birthday. The food selection was very limited. There was very little entertainment. We had to constantly ask for them to put some music on in the evening. The resort is in a lovely location.

Reason to come here is easy access to four beautiful and very uncrowded beaches , one of which is nudist if that’s a thing for you . It’s very quiet here not much to do at night . Staff is friendly , food and rooms passable . Come if you want a super quiet relaxing place with pretty and empty beach all to yourself

Me and my husband stayed at the Hawksbill on the 25th June 2019 to celebrate our honeymoon, and honestly, we could not have chosen a better place! Upon arrival we were greeted by Dave, an extremely helpful knowledgable receptionist who gave us a free room upgrade to a beach view bungalow and helped us with our luggage to our room. Our rooms were basic, but perfect to spend 10nights in. Now, being honest, if you are the type of person to go round your hotel room and inspect for dust and cracks in the walls then do not stay here!! The rooms are outdated and old and they do need a revamp, but, this seems to be the owner of Rex Resorts not wanting to spend their money! We didn’t mind that the rooms were outdated as housekeeping always done an amazing job, and all you really need is a bed! Little tip for the ladies.... bring your own hairdryer!! I read the hotel provide hairdryers in the room so I didn’t bring one, the hairdryer in the room is a box with a hose thing which gets extremely hot and it’s takes forever to dry your hair! The location and the 4 beaches is what really trumps this hotel!! And again, some areas need a lick of paint, some plants need watering, and it’s a real shame as this place could be even more amazing! The Eden beach (nude beach) was our Favourite beach! But due to the beach being 2 miles long, it does get extremely hot and it is just a pure sun trap! Great if you love tanning In 36degree heat! We went on a boat trip with the Wadali Cats, big yellow and red boat! This was a great day out and a fantastic way to catch a tan, BUT DO NOT PAY ON CARD!! we took Antiguan Dollars, and the boat only accepted American Dollars, so we had to pay on card £170 English all together, a few days after and when we had landed back home we kept getting texts from Barclays, explaining they had blocked a few payments, when we contacted to bank, it was the Wadali Cat boat company trying to take more money out on 4 didn’t occasions ! Dinner time...... now, the food was just great! Breakfast, lunch and dinner, I could not fault! Garfield will be your chef, and what an amazing chef he is! Such a lovely, chatty, caring gentlemen! He was always popping in and out of the kitchen, checking everyone was happy with their dinner.... one night, I enjoyed the chicken starter soo much he brought me out 2 more plates!! The little friendship we built with Garfield made the whole holiday 10 times betters and meal times so much more funner, and Garfield if you read this, thank you again for my gift :) Read less

The beach that the resort is situated on is very picturesque and relaxing. The hotel staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Food was delicious, all inclusive was served by menu (not buffet style)- chef Garfield introduced himself to us and was really nice. Room itself was quite basic and the only swimming pool is tiny but we spent most of our time on the beach. We were very surprised with how quiet the resort was, not many guests at all, live music on the Saturday but other than that very quiet on an evening. Read less
