Nice location and good outdoor ativities

Weve got a sunset condo. Excellent place for 5 people, except for: - sofa-bed that was broken, a rollaway bed was provided but after I had requested 4 times - the phones did not work, thus I had to go to the front-office (which is 2-3 mins by car) 3 times to complain about the sofa-bed - the stairs are too steep, my knee hurt going up-and-down Upside: great location to ride bikes - There are dolphins inside

Hawks Cay Quick Getaway

We booked our reservation, we drove down that night to find out they didn't have any rooms available and we did not show up in their reservation system. The Late night front desk lady then gave us a villa which would have been nice but the key didn't let us in, the villa was at the opposite end of the resort 2 blocks away from any of the hotel amenities. I had to drive back reprogram the key and return. She asked us to call the manager in the morning to discuss the matter with the room. The phone in the room was disconnected . When we finally did, I asked to see if we could get a late check out so that my girls could enjoy the pool a bit before leaving. He gave us just one extra hour. In conclusion, we slept in and left before checkout time. Too much of a hassle.

not impressed

rooms were clean, food was not tasty, as in a diner priced like fancy restaurant . really not much of a choice. Kind of abusive check out - maid entered our room twice before check out time, meanwhile clearly knew we were still in the room, not acceptable management policy on getting rid of the guests

Paradise needs a face lift

Beautiful resort. Everything you need is there, dining, entertainment, shopping. You do not need to leave the gates of the property. However, one of the most outdated rooms I have ever stayed at. Badly needs to be renovated. Second villa we stayed in was roomy but old and quite dusty. You can tell housekeepers never clean light fixtures as there were inches of build up dust there. Also doors and walls were stained, not to mention sticky kitchen cabinets. Definitely not the luxury you are paying for. For this price you can stay at much newer all inclusive or 5 star resort in Mexico. Room conditions is my only complaint. Stuff helpfull and nice. Lots of attractions for children, but for most of them you have to pay extra despite the fact you are paying a resort fee on top of your other charges. Painting a treasure chest workshop $25!!!!????

One night family getaway

Great hotel! Kids loved the pools and the lagoon. Although it does cost extra$ to do activities such as kayaking or paddle boarding. I feel those two activities should be included in their $30 resort fee.

Honeymoon

The hotel property is beautiful. The staff are not overly welcoming but most are at least courteous. The hotel is very family oriented. I would not suggest for a romantic getaway.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

The marina on the hotel grounds has multiple water adventures available but at very inflated prices. Take the short drive to Marathon or Islamorada to charter fishing boats, scuba, snorkel, etc. it is literally a tenth of the price.

Great location and amenities

We love This resort. We have been here a few times before. This stay was nice. Though our original room had a musty smell, the phones didn't work unless on speaker, and there was still used breakfast menus from the guests before. But after going to the front desk the staff was great at getting us switched easily. Our kids love the saltwater lagoon and we love the location.

Hawks Cay Rocks!

I booked this hotel last minute to accommodate for a tarpon fishing trip I had set up for my boyfriend's 30th. Usually we stay at cheaper motel-like establishments or bed and breakfasts with little to no ammenities or atmosphere, thinking 'hey we're just sleeping here right?' Needless to say our jaws dropped when we pulled up to what can truely be called a 'resort.' The entire atmosphere just exuded tropical resort spa. Although it was almost entirely out of our price range, I have to say springing the extra $150 or so was absolutely worth it!! It has definitely set a new par for our vacations. Even if you're out on Keys adventures all day and coming back to 'just sleep there' it makes a huge difference to come back to a beautiful, relaxing, and therapeutic resort!! We will definitely be returning (after we save up our vacation fund again!)

There is a swim with the dolphins experience right on the resort grounds that we did not have time for but would love to check out next time. Be sure to set aside time for the attraction ahead of time!
