Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


The Hawks Cay Resort is a massive, sprawling resort with the feel of a quaint waterfront village. It's complete with an 85-slip marina, six restaurants, an ice cream shop and a majorly impressive spa, making the fact that there isn't much to do immediately outside of the resort kind of moot.

Rooms are huge, which is great for families, who happen to be the most common type of guest. That's likely helped by the tons of kids activities: a kids club and teen lounge, a playground, a pirate ship pool, the incredible dolphin experience and a putting green. Adult activities include the lovely spa and a modern fitness center.

The only drawback here is the beach -- it's very small, and is actually more of a saltwater lagoon. However, the five pools more than make up for it. 

From the press:
  • One of "9 Best Kid-Friendly Hotels in the Florida Keys" --
  • "Huge rooms and restful spa" -- Fodor's

Enjoyed Most: We notcied a lot of nice updates since our last visit a year or two ago.
Other Comments: We've visited Hawks Cay a number of times and on our last visit weren't sure we'd go back. The resort was starting to seem a little worn and customer service had gone downhill. Also, the entire hotel and pool seemed over crowded. We noticed a big difference this year with the wrist difference, customer service and resort updates. It was a very pleasant surprise! Also, we loved the fact that the new restaurant was open and our experience there was fantastic!

Enjoyed Most: Employee named Donnie. He was very kind and helpful
Other Comments: Not very much wait staff around the tranquility pool area. I guess due to the small crowd. Sunset cruise cancelled on us.

Enjoyed Most: Beautiful resort. Food was just ok. Nothing amazing. Very expensive. Seemed like they were understaffed. The very few people that worked there were very friendly however they were under staffed. Service would have been better if they have more staff
