We have been visiting Islamorada twice a year for ten years. This is our first time staying at Amara Cay but it won’t be our last. From the moment we checked in everything was wonderful. We were greeted by Dolores and Lissette at the front desk. They were both lovely women and went out of their way to help every guest. The entire staff at the Tiki Bar works extremely hard to accommodate all the guests. The menu has a lot of entrees to choose from and everything was delicious. Same goes for the staff in the restaurant - once again, they worked extremely hard to accommodate everyone that came down for breakfast, great menu and everything was delicious (oatmeal, omelets, Eggs Benedict). The pool at this hotel (which I believe is Salt Water) is so beautiful and there are plenty of chairs. They also have chairs on the beach which I would have sat in had it not been so hot while we were there. The rooms are very spacious, extremely comfortable beds, small refrigerator, microwave and coffee makers, and a good size bathroom. The housekeeping staff does an amazing job and I would encourage everyone to tip them on a daily basis - it is a small price to pay for the excellent service they offer you. The entire staff of this hotel is extremely accommodating and will go out of their way to do whatever they can to make your stay more enjoyable. We can’t wait to go back.…
I absolutely love everything about Amara Cay. I came down for 2 nights -solo-for my birthday. The entire staff couldn't be nicer, more welcoming, warm, highly knowledgeable and professional. I felt special and was treated with such kindness, especially by Justina at the lobby bar. She was personable, made amazing drinks and just added outstanding service with a flair of making me feel fabulous. I never felt like I was alone! I cannot wait to book my next stay whether solo again or with my Miami/Ft Lauderdale friends. Thank you Justina and all of Amara Cay personnel. Allison Nash
I always enjoy stopping by the Coastal Lounge lobby bar at Amara Cay whenever I get a chance. Justina is an excellent bartender - always very friendly, great service, and very knowledgeable. The Coastal Lounge also has live music on certain nights and the singers are good and entertaining. Overall, it's always a fun time at the lobby bar at Amara Cay and always great, friendly service from Justina!
Amara Cay is my favorite gateway at the Keys, everything from the location,service, food,pool area and all the amenities are top notch. We had the pleasure of being helped today by Dolores at the front desk which was amazing she made sure to accommodate us on the very best possible way. Will be back for sure very soon!
Service here was exceptional. Liz our waitress was a bundle of energy with a smile as big as the sun. Each morning she greeted us with our coffee, took or orders and served them up with her infectious smile and love of life. She had great knowledge of the area. She interacted with us making us feel at home, and was a true treasure. I have never experienced someone so tuned into serving her clientele. There was not one moment we did not feel catered too. The hotel was amazing and I personally have been there several times over the years. There is not one thing I would change. Amara cay and its staff are remarkable and are there to make your stay fantastic. Our rooms are always clean and fresh and serviced daily.. Plenty of towels and toiletries.
