A great resort in a beautiful setting. Lots of families with lots of options. From interacting with dolphins to a choice of 5 pools plus the ocean and offshore activities, boredom is your own fault. Food not spectacular but tasty and plentiful.

We've been to Hawks Cay multiple times, and it continues to have the same strengths and weaknesses. On the plus side, the adult pool is a very nice feature for folks who want some peace and quiet, as opposed to the family pool, which is wonderful for little kids but is a very loud scene. As well, we found all... More

Great family resort, with an amazing dolphin experience and decent food We stayed just for the weekend and that was long enough to try out the 3 different restaurants on property and enjoy some sun by the pools. Very family friendly - which we loved. Our room unfortunately was a HUGE disappointment. We rented a condo - 3 bedroom 3... More

APRIL 6-12, 2015. Let me say up front, we had an excellent time. The resort pretty much filled our needs as a family, and, combined with the many things to do on the rest of the Keys, we had a great vacation. But, there are some things to know up front... To start with, know that we were an extended... More

This was our 4th straight year vacationing in the Florida Keys during April. Our second time at Hawk’s Cay. We learned after the first trip, NOT to stay in the hotel. We requested a room in Sunset Village for this trip. We love having the full kitchen to save money on breakfasts and lunches. Sunset Village: 2 bedrooms, 2 ½... More

We booked a resort room for one night using Choice Hotels Reward points. When we checked in we were given a bill for $403. We explained to the clerk about the points and I showed her my email confirmation showing we owed nothing. She left the desk to go to the back and check with someone on how to handle... More

We came on April Break with our two boys aged twelve and nine. The boys loved the swimming pool, walking the lagoon, and sitting by the fire pit each night. We all have noticed how friendly and happy the staff is! The marina is a short walk and a fun adventure. The boys have stopped by to watch the dolphin... More

This was our first trip to Hawks Cay - my husband and I with our two teenagers. We stayed for two days and I am glad I didn't stay longer. It just wasn't for us.

We stayed for several days with three other families in April 2015. The families shared three units, which were spread all around the resort, instead of close proximity as we had requested. We arrived shortly before check-in time and none of the units was ready, but two of the three were ready by the 400pm deadline, and those folks moved... More
