“A Home Away From Home”
I would highly recommend The HBK Villas!! They are well equipped with appliances such as refrigerator, microwave, stove and washing machine. Room maintenance is done every other day but if you need anything, you can call the front desk and have them bring you what you need such as soap, towels, etc. All of the air conditioning units kept the rooms cool which you will need after being in the hot weather! The hotel is nicely situated, within a 10 minute walking distance to shops, restaurants and grocery shopping. The hotel highly recommends you rent a car, which wouldn't be a bad idea. However, if you're in fine health, you can do the walk which is quite enjoyable. The beach is right around the corner from the villas. To me, the beach was just okay. It just needs to be picked up more with the empty beer cans and cups thrown around. Really wasn't expecting to see that in Antigua! However, I felt safe in the villas. There were guards outside all day and all night so I definitely felt safe. I highly recommend this hotel!
“The island paradise”
We arrived a little later than expected due to weather. The hotel was very accomodating and had our keys waiting at the security guard gate. The villa was perfect. The patio was large and had nice furniture. The view was great! The villa itself is a little dated and the washer is a european design, so it took a bit to understand how to utilise it. There is no dryer everyone just lays their clothes out to dry. Overall our experience was great!1 Will definately stay there again!
“HBK is worth the stay!”
This is a beautiful gated community. The villas may be close to each other but you have a sense of privacy that is very relaxing. We had a waterfront villa. It was not beachfront but rather in the sense of a marina. The villas were clean and looked new. The applicances were new even though the TV was a small 19" and the refrigerator was only half sized. We had a 2 bedroom/2.5 bathroom villa. The bedrooms were quite large with the master looking over the marina. The bathrooms did not have windows, however, they all had powerful vents that are a necessity when there is not ventilation in the restrooms. There were a/c units in all the rooms but we hardly used them as we were seldom in during the day and most nights were cool enough. There are some things to bear in mind that may be simply mild concerns. When going onto the balconies, even though there were screens doors, mosquitoes would come in. Having an electric swatter or bug spray was easily remedied this. Also, maid service is extra, however, there was no mop or bucket there, but there was a broom and dust pan. Whenever we needed anything like towels, it was a phone call to the front desk and someone was sent. We also did not realize the electrical voltage was 220 before we checked in. If your electronics run on 110, you will need a transformer not a simple converter for the sockets. The beach was a short walk away. Each villa had its own driveway so parking our rental car was a snack.
“Perfect winter getaway.”
The Villa which we stayed in was very nice and comfortable. It had plenty of room even though it was just my wife and I. We loved our location, close to the beach and one could walk every where in just minutes. The patio and the deck was perfect for siting out and enjoying the morning or evening air. We had a sun awning to keep the afternoon sun and heat off. The dock was a nice spot to do a little fishing from. We enjoyed having TV channels from New York where we are from.
“Doesn't get any better!”
The resort has everything you might need. In addition to the actual unit you stay in there is a swimming pool, tennis courts, a supermarket, several retail stores, and at least two excellent restaurants. A fabulous beach with restaurant and bar serving great food and better drinks, are close by; within walking distance if you get the right rental unit. Beach chairs were free and umbrellas were $5-10, depending on who you rented from. It was a bit of a hassel to get a parking pass but everyone is friendly and helpful. We had a few problems with the safe and a sliding patio door but the response was immediate and the 'fixes' were efficiently accomplished. I would stay there again in a heartbeat! The unit, which faced a canal with and ocean view, was two floors with a patio downstairs and a balcony upstairs. There were two bedrooms and two and a half baths. The kitchen had the basics - sufficient for our needs. It had air conditioning, a TV downstairs (but not in either bedroom), and a pull-out in the living room. We were able to park our rented car in the tiny driveway but golf carst are available for use on property. My husband had a great experience with Jolly Harbour Dives located on property.
We stayed for a week. Room was great, close to the beach. Staff was very friendly. People that ran the local market are another story. Beach concessions were very friendly, ask for Boston. The villa is a little over a mile from shopping and restaurants, you might consider renting a golf cart.
It was a very nice experience. Shopping was convenient. We stayed one week. The hotel information says their housekeepers come every other day and is supposed to be fully stocked with kitchen items etc. The housekeeper only came once. There were no brooms, mops, or other cleaning supplies. The washing machine was in bad repair. However, over all our stay was very pleasant.
“good family island”
St John very difficulr to get around in by car
“Good for quit retrieve.”
Secluded, good for quit retrieve. The place is safe and I felt very comfortable. It is bit far away so you would need to rent a car to get around.
“Great hotel for family”
We loved the area and the ability to have a 2 bedroom condo at the same price as a regular hotel room. The couch in our unit was filthy. We could not even sit on it. The remainder of the unit was very clean.
