Certificate of Excellence
Midway down the Florida Keys, you’ll find an island called Duck Key. It’s small. Secluded. Yet central to Miami and Key West, and easy to reach by car, boat or plane. Duck Key has a few telltale Florida Keys features: Aquamarine water all around. Glorious sunrises and sunsets. An island sensibility that lulls you into a state of total relaxation – except for when you’re out fishing, snorkeling, paddleboarding or gliding along with the ocean breeze on a kiteboard. The best of the Keys is waiting for you at Hawks Cay Resort.

Hawks Cay is a sprawling resort with several eating options and numerous activities available. Pros: Lovely landscaping and public areas; wonderful pool at Sunset Villas Cons: Telephone at our villa (at Sunset Villas) never worked despite reporting it 3 times (had to use cellphones to call front desk); bedrooms in Sunset villa were very small (e.g., only about 18 inches between foot of bed and wall in our bedroom and foot of bed extended beyond edge of doorway); only full bathroom was very small and had only one small towel rack; free paddle board limited to 15 minutes use in pond also used by swimmers and kayaks

Hotel's Favorite
I understand that Hawks Cay Resort suffered a staggering blow from last year's hurricane Irma. However, to look at it today, you would never know it! Major improvements have been made with the Resort's security, dolphin experience, restaurant (with an additional higher end restaurant in the final preparation stages of their grand opening). From booking our experience to arrival and departure, we experienced first class help from team members who clearly love their work. Laurie Lupton gave us ideas on local experiences not to miss! Angela Dawson is about the friendliest waitress we've ever experienced. She waited on our demanding group and never once lost her smile. And I'm so sorry, but I can't remember the name of the new girl who came out while we were walking around watching the dolphins. She was both kind and knowledgeable! I don't know if there was any cross training involved, but everyone we encountered wanted to help you... even if it wasn't "their job". We simply can not wait to go again!! 🤗

My family and I decided to take a couple nights vacation in the Keys on a whim and chose Hawks Cay after reading many positive reviews about all of the kid friendly activities going on. Even though our main day there was a Tuesday, our kids had a blast! There were multiple events with Priscilla the Pirate and my kids were mesmerized by her. The gem game she played and story time were great! We also went to see the dolphins and kayak in the lagoon area! My only complaint is that we didn't have enough time to do everything. We certainly had a great unexpected stay and will be back in the future!

Hotel beautiful but not much included. You also get hit with a high resort fee. Pool area lacks service. They need more help. Chairs were dirty with bird feces since birds were flying everywhere above. Birds were also in the pool. Do not get coffee in the Island Time. Not sanitary..They used a dirty rag to clean the countertop that had been on the floor. I also had to ask the worker to wash her hands after she cleaned the floor in front of me before making my coffee. (No gloves used in the Shop) Bartender/bar great at the 21 and over area.... Much friendlier than the bar at the Tikki Grill. Kudos to the chef since the food there was good. Best staff was housekeeping. Got greeted every morning by them!!! Rooms were clean.
