rather too many corners are being cut at what has the potential to be a special venue : drinks served in polystyrene cups is certainly not acceptable and new sun beds are needed to replace the ones which have been vandalised. Despite the damage , guests still need to relax on decent sun beds on the beach. Not having a...

The Hawksbill by rex resorts team appreciates you sharing your review on tripadvisor. In terms of health & safety, it is recommended that the mentioned polystyrene cups are suitable to be used near the pool and beach areas. This practice is by no means 'cutting corners'. Your concerns pertaining to the sun beds and the water supply are noted. We...

We used Hawksbill as a quiet base to explore the island for a few days after a week in another resort. I travelled with my two children. Unfortunately the first encounter I had (after the very welcome glass of fizz at reception) was with a couple who stopped us and said 'I think you'll find this is an adults only...

The Hawksbill by rex resorts team would like to thank you for sharing your vacation experience on tripadvisor. Despite the majority of our visitors being adults, we have always been a family oriented Resort, however we take note of some websites which stated that we are an adults only Resort.

I visited Hawksbill in October lots of cats pestering for food, unfortunately I was bitten by one of these cats and had to call the doctor for medication which cost me 365 US dollars. Was promised that they would consider a cull of these cats. Unfortunately a short period after my anti biotics finished by bite flared up again and...

The Hawksbill by rex resorts team appreciates you sharing your review on trip even though it was not a positive experience. Despite guest being told on numerous occasions not to pet or feed the cats (restaurants are fully open aired concept), most of the times the message is ignored.

We have been here so many times and each time we fall in love with the beach and location. It is truly superb. The staff are amazing - we love them, they are like friends. The hotel has been undergoing a gradual refurbishment and there are lots of positives - air conditioning in some rooms. That said - I would...

This was my second visit to Hawksbill, the first was March 2016 and it was so enjoyable I immediately booked a December return trip.

I can see why this resort tends to polarise opinion but I think it boils down to what you are looking for. Our accommodation was very nice (bungalow on Royal Palms beach) which was yards from the beach. The resort itself is a bit more "wild" than some with more sanitised beaches (eg the one where the Sandals resort is)...
