    Stayed at Amara Cay this past weekend and was pleasantly surprised. The remodel is very nice, however it is not a 5 star. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. A refrigerator in the room would have been nice, but not too big of a deal. All of the staff we met were lovely and the shuttle service was fast and... More

    Stayed here while diving in the keys for five days. Newly renovated, the hotel has a great trendy decor that reminded us of resorts in Costa Rica with a touch of the W hotel mixed in. We primarily stayed here because of its proximity to Bud and Mary's Marina and Key Dives. However, we tried out the hotel's amenities as... More

    Newly remodeled and very comfortable. The only negative is the restaurant. The food is mediocre at best and extremely overpriced with horrible service. They are quick to seat you, take your order, and bring your food. After that your on your own. No follow up visits to the table. Trying to get a refill on your coffee is impossible and... More

    The pictures of the are true and it is beautiful. However, they are very unorganized. Construction silk exists. Our room was right outside the ice machine. ..never again. It was used at all hours. The fitness room wasn't done. That spills have been noted on website. Couldn't get into our room the first time. Had to go back down for... More

    My long term boyfriend and I were celebrating two years together and picked Amara Cay to share in our vacation for a week. The hotel itself was beautiful and newly renovated. Our room was a great size with room for a desk and small love seat in addition to 40" flat screen TV (which we never turned on). The bed... More

    As a result of failed vacation plans I was able to book a two day trip on the same day and salvage my vacation plans. I called the facility as soon as I had booked to ensure that they had received our booking as we would be there in 2 to 3 hours. The first call they stated that they... More

    This hotel was recently refurbished and the halls still have the smell of fresh paint. The room was large and modern, with a wide screen TV, large beds and a beautiful bathroom. It has a bar just off the beach, a nice looking restaurant, and a great pool. The location is right on the beach and it is perfectly located... More

    The renovations here were very well done. Loved the oversized room and liked not having carpet. Agree that no fridge is a bit aggravating but expect they will change that over time (and probably raise prices!) Pool was a bit crowded at times but beach was always relaxing. Staff were all very friendly. Never went to the restaurants but Lazy... More

    I can see the hotel's vision but agree with all the other reviewers that it has a long way to go. We stayed in 2 different rooms, both suites. Our first room faced the parking lot and another resort. We asked if there were any beachfront views available and for $50/night extra they moved us the next night when one... More
