Overall, I would highly recommend a stay at hawks Kay. Nice large facilities, extensive activities and very nice villas.
PROS: villas are beautiful, we stayed near the spa with a deck overlooking the canal. Fun to see the fish for the kids and sit in the screened porch. The dolphin connection is right here and it was a wonderful program (see another rating). Food at the lagoon/pool was just as expected and about the price range one would see at this type of resort. Starbucks in the main building. Easy checkin. Good wifi. Excellent kids club (I always stayed) with a great pirate pool and quiet pool behind that one. Comfy beds. We were granted a late check out easily as we'll an an upgrade (join the I prefer program prior to stay)
CONS: needs more kitchen items as well as dish soap, we had to use shampoo to hand wash plus ran out of bowls with 6 people in the unit frequently. Limited services later at night but for us, we stuck to the villa so it was fine. Needs more and larger garbage in the unit, and I thought we were supposed to get our garbage removed daily but that didn't happen. Construction by the marina so using the path over there was tricky, but I managed. VERY overpriced groceries by the marina, but as expected.
Overall, I wouldn't not consider the negatives to overtake the positives as I believe many of these are expected at a resort. We were here on a weekend and a couple days during the week, the week was much quieter and we had a harder time getting service at the pool. We managed however by just getting off our butts and walking to the tiki hut.
Would recommend as long as you are looking for a larger resort feel....
