The staff was wonderful. The view can not be beat. Service was over the top. I am not sure after reading some of these reviews if we staid at the same place. It is the best view in the Keys! IF I could buy 4 weeks in a row I would!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The girls at the office were not only smoking... More

My family has owned a timeshare at this resort since before I was born, and I've never had a bad time here. Pool is heated now and the hot tub is a great place to sit and stare at some stars. Lots of seating outside to watch the sunset over the 7 mile bridge, which is beautiful by the way.... More

You CANNOT beat this location. Unfortunately, there is a fair amount of deferred maintenance that could be easily taken care of but isn't. The building is old and not updated (think green bathrooms!), worn cabinets, etc. but is very clean, functional, and housekeeping is great. Furnishings are fine. A few inexpensive cosmetic fixes would go a long way to improving... More

The check in went smoothly. Took a day to get the one flat screen television to work correctly. The staff was friendly, but they leave quickly after, and are not here on Sunday when you have some issues to resolve. There were also TV's in the bedrooms. The one in the master was old and barely functional. The one in... More

Great setting, right on the water near the 7 Mile Bridge. Convenient for fishing off the docks, accessing the various state parks and beaches, and visiting other keys. Rooms were fairly clean, but rundown. The a/c worked well, so no mold or musty odor. We found it odd that timeshare owners were charged for utilities.

We have owned a Timeshare at Hawks Nest for over 25 years. It is not a hotel as others have described. If you want friendly staff, great views and a condo full of amenities, then Hawks Nest is for you! The pool area is gorgeous, plenty of chaise lounges! No need to run down early AM to drop your towels... More

First, for the goods: -Clean, well-equipped rooms (The furniture was not nearly as bad as I had expected. While a little dated, it looks like everything had been reupholstered recently.) -Accommodating staff (most of our disappointments were out of their control and they truly do seem to care about the shareholders' experience there.) -Unbeatable view (as many other members have...

A friend of mine owns a place here and I stayed with her mid march. After all my driving around Marathon, it is clear that Hawks Nest is the best place to stay. Gorgeous view of the sunsets. Located right before the 7 mile bridge to Key West makes it easy to find and interesting to watch the night time... More

What a lovely setting and view. But the staff .... not so much. We were charged over $400 for services that were never discussed with us. The room service was spotty through the week and nosey in our belongings when they were there. The staff entered our room unannounced and this was the office staff. Not a professional environment. And... More
