Truly Exceptional!

This is one of my family's favorite resorts. The views are gorgeous from any room. The pools are large, clean, and properly staffed. The lagoon is our favorite area to relax, snorkel, and spend quality family fun in a safe beach environment. The food is delicious at all restaurants. We loved the catch of the day & crabcakes at Angler & Ale (restaurant on the property). The rooms are clean and beautiful. We have stayed in a variety of rooms, but the family lanai suite is, by far, the best. The staff is exceptional, including management. Marsha is like a family member, and she is the face I look for when I visit! My children did not ask for electronics once. :)
I highly recommend this resort and cannot wait to return once again!

Excellent entertainment !

I’ve been to this hotel before and was not impressed until this last visit. The entertainment by Oliva at the pool along with the singing she performed was amazing and made our trip worth wild. Oliva raised the energy of the crowd like no other and we will be planning our next event here soon! Great Job!

The Keys best resort.

Started staying at Hawk's Cay in the Early 80's and it has grown to be a place that is the best in the Key's. The dinning is fantastic, the pool and grounds are kept pristine and the staff is wonderful. Rooms are nice and the new bungalows are great. Wonderful Family place that you will want to visit more than once.
