Overview

The Amara Cay Resort opened in 2015 and guest rooms are modern, fresh and ready for budget-conscious families, groups and couples to take in the best of the Florida Keys.

There are a ton of activities here, including Tiki huts for picnics, a boat dock and a dive shop where guests can rent WaveRunners, kayaks, paddleboards, boats, bikes and more. While there isn't a traditional beach here (it's man-made), there are very few actual beaches in the area. As far as the Keys go, this is one of the nicest. 

The pool is serviced by a funky little Tiki bar, and the casual Italian restaurant on site serves up breakfast and dinner.

The resort was lovely, large room, newly renovated and shower was great. The staff from the front desk to the waitresses in the restaurant were friendly and attentive. The beach is quiet to sit and read and the poolside was also enjoyable.

I was very pleasantly surprised by the decor and condition of the resort. It looks like it's been renovated and the interior design is modern with some antique touches. We enjoyed the easy access to the oceanfront and the great on-site restaurant, where we had complimentary breakfast for our entire stay. It was a very relaxing and lovely resort, and I will definitely stay there again.

There's a pool, small beach area and a dock with access to rentals so you can enjoy the ocean. If you're more of a lounger (like me), you'll like enjoying the beach area and relaxing with a drink from their beach front bar.
