Great hotel. Large property with various accomodations. I stay in the main hotel. Nice room, very clean, comfortable bedding. Beautiful water views with gorgeous sunrises and sunsets!! Three pools - salt, fresh and adult! Real "Key West" feel. Dolphin show, rooms with chaise lounge patio....all great. When we were shown our room, we noticed our refrigerator wasn't working and they... More

I was with a friend on a fishing trip and we shared a spacious and well-appointed room with two queen beds. Very comfortable beds - we slept soundly. The hotel sits on a somewhat crowded key where there are lots of activities. The resort is very kid-friendly with a lot of facilities and activities for a great family vacation. Although... More

This hotel/resort was a wonderful place to spend a few days with or without the kids! There was a beautiful pool/ lagoon area with lots of activities going on throughout the day, all which were a great distraction from the intense heat. The room was clean and comfortable for four of us (2 adults and 2 kids) and every amenity... More

Went here in April 2011 for a long weekend. It was nice to lounge by the adults only pool during the day. Umbrellas were scarce though and you could not find shade unless you go to the pool early. People reserve chairs and umbrellas with towels before they go to breakfast - not cool. Like the water coolers for fresh... More

My husband and I recently made a long weekend getaway to Hawks Cay for a belated B'day celebration. The Resort was absolutely beautiful and the service flawless, very kind and genuine, but relaxed which was nice as it made you feel very comfortable. We loved the fact that they have a separate pool for adults which was perfect for relaxing.... More

We stayed in the Sunset Villas. Very small, not that clean. No maid service. If you order room service you have to pick it up yourself in the main lobby of hotel. We were in last set of Villas on property so not convenient at all....and they still charged 18% gratuity! The best place for lunch is at the Duck... More

Dear Knoll104, Thank you for sharing feedback from your recent stay at Hawks Cay. I'm sorry that your stay in Sunset Village did not meet expectations. I believe one of the best features of our villas is that you are able to select the location, or Village, and size of unit that works best for you. As a tip for... More

We spent 4 nights in a villa in the Sancuary section. The villa provided enough space for our family of 2 adults, 2 teens and 1 preteen. The private pool at our villa was a big hit with our kids. The kitchen was stocked with all we needed to occasionally eat at our villa. The property was beautiful. The large... More

If you don't mind loud piped-in rock style music everywhere, including the "tranquility pool", lobby, corridors, etc., then this place has much to offer. Our standard room was spacious and well-appointed. Good beds, linens not as plush as Hilton or Westin but still pretty soft. I'm not sure how previous reviewers got upgraded rooms, but we were not offered one.... More

I was getting worried after reading all the negative comments on here, but it's obvious some people just like to complain and will never be satisfied.
