If you are planning a trip to Key West or simply in the Florida Keys, plan to stay at Hawks Cat for "at least" 2 days. We will definitely be coming back, with or without children. There's even an 'adults only' private pool area. Oh yea...there are dolphins swimming at the resort AND the Dolphin Research Center is 5 minutes... More

My parents surprised the family with 3 days at Hawk Cay, and it was a beautiful weekend. The villa was clean when we arrived, with a beautiful backyard area. But once we settled in, we did notice some issues. The wi-fi was inconsistent and didn't work at times. The phones didn't work. A cabinet door was broken off it's hinges,... More

Hawks Cay is still the best place to stay for a family in the keys, but it wasn't what if use to be. The 5 pools and kids area is ideal for families. Not to mention the 5 restaurants on premise give it variety. The service is still top notch, but the room/villa's are starting to age and so is... More

My family and my brother in law booked a villa here for 3 days in December. From the get go things went badly wrong. We were told we would have wifi. The initial villa neither had wifi nor did the phone work. We got in at 9 pm and we're told that we would have to change villas at 10... More

We have stayed at HC for my December birthday for the past 3 years. It is far enough away that you feel like you are getting away, but close enough that the drive doesn't feel forever. Perfect for families as there is so much to do. The Indie's Club is a fantastic perk for those with kids. The 6 year... More

But this ticked all the boxes. I spend winters in Fort Lauderdale on the beach so I'm accustomed to ocean views and I was very impressed with this location. Easy access from South Florida--driving to Key West can be a drag, one road in and out. I stayed in a double queen lanai (walkout to pool) and it was very... More

Wonderful little resort tucked away in the middle of the Keys. Was there for a work conference and really loved the place ... except for the on again-off again Internet connectivity. Hey folks ... it's almost 2015. No excuse not to have good connectivity.

The resort is in a beautiful setting. The resort amenities such as pool, dining facilities, dolphins, and bar are all great. However, negatives abounded: 1. Internet was largely non-existent over the course of five days. Repeated attempts to address were ineffective and consumed way too much time; 2. Noise from construction in the front of the main building rendered our... More

We love our little house in sunset village. The pool is relaxing and very peaceful and the only other guests are two iguanas sunning themselves in a tree above us. We have visited the Keys twice and staying half way up at Duck Key means we can explore this whole area and get into the spirit. This resort has everything... More
