Would rate it 3.5 stars. This is a nice resort but on the smaller side. The positives include large room and bathroom with large rain shower; balcony; huge TV, computer desk, aesthetically appealing pool area with outdoor palapa with bar/grill; man-made beach with several palm trees with 2 palaces for shade, hammock and a dock right there for boaters or...

Great hotel. Loved the renovations. Beach is a little misleading. Not much of it but otherwise perfect! We rented a boat for the day and had drinks at the bar. Perfect tiki bar outside with cocktails and the pool. Everyone was so helpful ! Will stay again and recommend to many many friends!

I got an about this property a couple weeks before traveling to the keys. Once I saw the website and did my research, I just had to stay here. The rooms are really nice, and the property is beautiful. The best part was the tiki bar and the view from the beach! I would definitely stay here again!

Our package included, breakfast, shuttle service and no resort fee. Large rooms, very clean, great breakfast. Excellent experience. Warm breeze from the Florida Straights kept the heat away. Close to restaurants and activities. Will definitely consider again for our next trip to the Keys.

Each room has a view - even if it's a glimpse - of the ocean. The Amara has clean, updated rooms in a modern, Miami style. Crisp linens, artwork reflecting the Keys, coffee maker with tea & coffee, bottled water. In the evening, the lobby doubles duty as an Itlaian restaurant. In the morning, the same tables and chairs welcome... More

The hotel looked beautiful really nice size rooms and nice pool and beach area. Only problem we had was the bathrooms were dirty and also the towels were dirty also. Breakfast was really good, They need to work on the service but overall it was a good experience.

Spent a weekend with my wife and kids at Amara Cay in Islamorada. A great part of going to the Florida Keys is always the drive itself along overseas highway soaked sure to take your time and enjoy the scenery. Amara Cay was a beautiful resort and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. It's located close to so many... More

THE FACILITY: This "resort in progress" is a former Hampton Inn turned fancy. Very clean. Beautiful art, interior design and decor throughout, especially the indoor bar and reception areas. Construction netting and intermittent noise surround the entire beach and pool area, prepping for Amara Cay's new pool/bar area to be finished by Christmas 2016. Our suite-style room was comfy and...

Before booking the comments varied so we were not completely sure about this resort but we had a very agreeable time. Exquise beds (soft, but not too soft), good pool, nice beach and very relaxing. The inside of the hotel is kind of boutiquestyle which is very nice. Neat and clean. Friendly personnel.

Arrived before the check in time so left our things with reception and started making use of the pool and pool bar areas. The reception said they would let us know when the rooms were ready but they didn't, we had to go back. The lunch at the tiki bar was very nice. We had a clean, comfortable, smart room... More
