My husband and I stayed at Amara Resort for ten days for our honeymoon. I absolutely loved the location of the property but unfortunately I do not think we will be returning back due to how rude their staff were especially on our honeymoon. We were very disappointed with the cleaning staff. Entered our room on the cleaning days still not cleaned, only towels. I couldn’t believe it.

Beautifully designed and laid out. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Could use a little cleaning up around the landscaping. There was alot of garbage around our private patio area. The birds have made quite a mess too. I understand that’s nature but there was quite a bit. Your breakfast restaurant was fabulous with accommodating gluten-free. A few more natural selections from the Tiki Bar would be great. However, the Tiki staff was knowledgeable and great to offer suggestions to be helpful.

Great views!

Great location, good food, comfortable and spacious room. The front desk is not friendly and the hall sways needed to be cleaned.

We booked Amara Cay as repeat customer and they gave us a great stay. We made a special request for an early check-in and a late check out and they were able to do both. We appreciated their easy dining on premises for breakfast this morning. Will definitely return the next time we're in Islamorada!

Pleasantly surprised with very friendly, accommodating staff. The only disappointment was housekeeping due to staffing, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturday. Not a terrible thing, we stayed Friday to Monday. Just would have been nice to know ahead of time.

Beautiful place! Nice beach, we’ll dared for property. Friendly staff

We found the property was very suitable to our desires and made us feel quite pleased. The only issues was parking and rooms, the lights in the bathroom only partially worked and the shower was poor. Also needed screens on the porch doors.

Liked that the outdoor recreational area, bar, pool and waterfront are all in close proximity to one another. Nice evening entertainment.

Beautiful stay

Great stay with an amazing property!

Amara Cay is well staffed and very well maintained.

Great place, highly recommended!

Property was well kept and very relaxing to stay at.

Most amazing stay! We visited during off season and it was perfect! Beautiful views, friendly staff and so close to everything the islands offer!
