My wife and I stayed at Amoray for the last week of January, 2008. We stayed in room 4. It is an upstairs kitchenette with a sperate bedroom. The room was old but clean and adequate. My compaint would be that the only chairs in room were small uncomfortable wicker chairs. The table was a tiny flimsy wicker contraption. The entire set of furniture would not fetch more than $10 at any well attended garage sale. I have little understanding of the hotel star rating system but I have stayed in many resorts with various ratings. I suspect the room would be a 1 star at best. I would however consider staying at this resort again because I enjoyed the friendlly atmosphere it seemed to instill in the guests. We socialized with others staying at the resort for drinks and/or rdinner almost each night of our stay.
We enjoy scuba diving and were in Key Largo for that purpose. We did eight dives with Amoray. There was a reasonable amount of coral and sea life. Visabiltiy was no more than 30 feet. The dive boat is well set up There is however a problem with the ladders used by divers to get out of the water. They are on hinges and are lowered into the water when the dive starts. At the end of the dive, divers go to the ladder, take off their fins and hand them to a crew member and climb the ladder. The problem is that the ladder is not locked into place. That allow it to swing with the rocking of the boat. To ascend the ladder you must first put your knees on the bottem step. If you are unlucky and the boat rocks while you are in this position the ladder rises up and then slams down causing considerable discomfort to the knees. There is a potential here for some serious personal injury.
The crew on the dive boat appeared to be indifferent and bored. There was no attempt to create any excitement and minimal assistance with gear. They appeared to be wage employees simply doing their job. There are a large number of dive shops in Key Largo and if I return I will seek out a dive operation that is actually operated by the owners with the expectation of better service.
