About the Hawksbill Resort

It is a typical Caribbean 3 star resort, but what is less typical about it is that you have an expansive beach area.  Plus the fathest beach Eden Beach is 'clothing optional' nudist beach, which is untypical in Antigua.

It is well located for St Johns visits via the 5 islands village pass through. As it is part of Rex Resorts while the Halcyon Cove is a part of Rex Resorts you are allowed to spend a day in the other resort enjoying all the benefts of their all inclusive package.

The resort reviews favourably after you get over the star rating and what that means. It is clean and you might feel it needs some moderisation. Beds will be comfortable but beach chairs etc and furniture can be dated. Apart from over the Christmas and new year weeks the resort has become and Adult Only Resort.

How to choose the right resort?

Hotel Location

It's not necessary to situate yourself based on location to Nelsons Dockyard or Shirley Heights as the size of Antigua allows you full access to the islands nightlife and attractions anyway. Instead focus on choosing the right resort for you.

When To Visit

Out of season it will be quiet no matter where you go with the exception that some loactions seem to hold more bars and restaurants that are actually open. English Harbour tends to slow down out of season (with closures) more than say the South West or North West. Just be ready to disengage from time and enjoy the resort restaurnts and nightlife. The busiest periods around Christmas to Easter see more visitors to the island and check for sailing week as it's crowded.
