Our fourth time at Hawksbill. Still in love with it and although just got back last evening, can not wait to return. It has four wonderful beaches. our favorite is Eden Beach. It is a very natural setting which is basically empty. 3/4 of a mile long it sits in a peninsula. We spent the most of our two weeks sunning in its privacy. We saw at most 10 folks walk by during the entire time.
The hotel is very simple and rustic, it is not for everyone. The food is good. I managed to gain 10 pounds despite exercising every day. The rooms are simple with no TV or Internet. there is WIFI in the lobby only. It is perfect place to get away. No TV no news for two weeks. Staff will become your friends. William, Millie, David and ? Andrewthe bartenders get to know you and prepare your favorite drinks as they see you walking up to one of the bars.
The guests are mostly European which allows for eclectic, engaging conversation.
If you are looking for a place to totally relax and don't mind rustic yet clean facility this is the place to go. The saying is that you never go to Hawsbill just once. We met folks who have been there 7-28 times and we heard of a couple in their 90's who have been there more than 40 times.
We booked this hotel as we needed an extra couple of nights on our stay and the other hotel we had booked could not accommodate us. Really glad we did as it gave us a chance to stay in this quiet place just outside the main bustle of St Johns. Staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, especially when I left my sun glasses in one of the taxis. They called them up and arranged for it to come back and drop them off.
Outside the hotel you look over McKinnon’s Pond towards the sea and there is a big supermarket nearby if needed so not far from Dickenson Bay or the Cricket Ground (which was why we were there). You can walk into St Johns but you may decide a taxi is a better option (we did). Well worth staying here if you prefer a quieter place to lay your head outside the resort locations.
We stayed at Siboney for two nights only at the end of our holiday in Antigua and truly enjoyed the time there, primarily due to its convenient location just on the beach and the cosy facilities. The hotel rooms are not super spacious but were just the right size for two. The hotel has its own allocated portion of the beach (although it is open to everyone) and is next to the famous Sandals and some other resorts, as well as right next to a long 'deserted' beach, i.e. without hotels along the coast - so great for an evening stroll or running. It also has a nice bar/restaurant on the beach with decent food and nice cocktails. Staff is very friendly too! Oh, and they have a small outdoors pool in the yard which was a nice addition to the great sea.
Overall, had a great time and would recommend for a quiet holiday.
apartments are clean and well maintained. Bit isolated, great for couples, Coconut Grove Restaurant & Bar on the beach to the left served great food. There is Tonys bar on beach past sandals for great Carribean food. Italian Le Bussola taxi ride 5 mins or 15minute walk down the road was also good. Casino next door is going to have a restaurant soon, which would be another restaurant in walking distance. There is a Bar across the road that serves Pizza and burgers etc. only open in evenings also has crazy golf. Apart from that there is nothing else around the location of the Village. Overall my husband and I had a great relaxing holiday, is the first time we had stayed in an apartment and I was a bit concerned as to what to expect I am glad I was not disappointed and I can be quite funny when it comes to cleanliness etc., inspecting mattress and the like. We will definitely be back.

Hotel was perfect for a family of 5, plenty of space with rooms up and down. Rooms were clean and well presented and equipped. Staff were polite and helpful and we wish all hotel accommodation could be like this.

Clean, excellent air-conditioning in my room, friendly staff, good well appointed room too and sited next to one of Antigua's best beaches at a reasonable cost...my one night stay was far too brief .I will certainly stay there again and for hopefully for much longer.
