We really enjoyed Hawks Cay. There was something for everyone. My husband and sons loved staying in one of the villas close to the dock for fishing. Great fishing and the resort was very nice. Had something for everyone in the family.

We returned to Hawks Cay for a few days of R & R during spring break. The resort is everything we could have asked for. We particularly enjoyed the quiet of the "adults only" pool area. The grounds are beautiful and the rooms extremely comfortable. We will certainly tell our friends about this bit of paradise!

Dear eatergourmet, Thank you for taking the time to share your recent vacation with us. We like to think that our 60 acre resort embodies everything a person could want in pursuit of rest and relaxation. Our “adult only” tranquility pool isa key component to this side of paradise.

My family loved everything about our stay at Hawk's Cay. The activities were definitely the highlight: dolphin experience, snuba, snorkel, waverunner, segways, fishing...we did it all and had a blast doing each one. We stayed in a villa and found it 5-star. The food at Alma and Tom's Harbor House is the only thing holding this first class destination back.... More

Normally we are reluctant to provide glowing feedback but in this case we have no choice! The resort, location, staff and facilities were matched by the weather to make a fantastic vacation. All minor issues were dealt with quickly and efficiently, we are saving for our next trip already.

We stayed at Hawks Cay for a 4 night get-away after a long, cold winter in PA. It was truly a tropical paradise and one of the most relaxing vacations ever. We "lived" in the Tranquility Pool (for over 21 only) during the day and it was relaxing and wonderful. We loved our room and even though it faced the... More

Our stay at Hawks Cay was part of a wider trip in South Florida. The three days we spent there were one of the highlights. The other one being my birthday dinner in Miami.

Dear Eggoo1, Thank you for taking the time to share your great vacation experience with us and for choosing Hawks Cay Resort. I agree, the rooms on the Lanai by the Tranquility Pool are ideal for couples. Please let me know if I may be of assistance when booking for next Spring. We look forward to seeing you again soon....

We had high hopes for Hawks Cay but we were profoundly disappointed by the cleanliness, the service and the prices. First of all, when we arrived, our duvet cover in our room had blood spots! The trying to get service at the bar was horribly slow for us. For other more attrative young women it was easier. Others noticed that... More

We had a very brief stay here in February, so in the off-season. Because of this, the room was relatively cheap and the resort was relatively quiet (not crowded). However, the pools where still warm enough to swim and it was sunny enough to relax around the beautiful pool side -- perfect! Unfortunately pool access was not included in the... More
