My family of 4 stayed here at the end of June 2012 and we were very disappointed at the lack of activities on the island and the resort itself. Duck Key is defined by Hawks Cay. If you want to do anything outside of the resort you will have to travel to Marathon. We stayed here 3 nights and after the first day we found ourselves trying to find things to do and ended up driving to Key West 2 out of the 3 days.
In a nut shell here is the good:
1.Lagoon- this is something different, and was fun for the family to experience.
2.Main pool- was ok but nothing fancy
3.Room- we stayed in a room with 2 queen beds. We really liked the décor in the room and bathroom
4.Valet Staff - Friendly
Not so great:
1.Activities- not much to do
2.Food-lack of versatility in restaurants and food
3.Gratuity- you are charged 18% gratuity on all food and drink items. We ate at their Beach Grille, and our food and drink order was wrong and the service was very slow, but we still had to pay the 18% gratuity. I believe in tipping 18%-20% on extraordinary service. Being forced to pay for world class service and only receiving mediocre at best, is a real sticking point for me.
4.Check-in- no details of the resort were given
