“Great Introduction to the Keys!”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

We returned to the Keys for the first time in 40 years. With a late arrival we decided to stay at Amy's Amoray Dive Resort the first night. We got there just at sunset and what a beauty it was! Our room was basic but very comfortable and the bathroom was spotless with amazing water pressure in the shower. We took their recommendation and had dinner at The Fish House. It's crazy busy but the food was delicious and portions huge. Even the drinks were great - reasonable and powerful!
We got a better look around in the morning - so beautiful! And it smelled wonderful! The staff were all very nice. We saw the dive boat leaving - those people looked like they were going to have a fantastic time!
Breakfast was at their recommendation - The Hiddenout - a retro throwback next to the House Boatel. I would go back to Amy's in a heartbeat; it's a real gem!

Room Tip: They're all amazing!

This is a very late review, since it's 12 years old.
In June 2001 we went on honeymoon for 2 weeks in Florida and started at Amoray's.
Arriving after 8pm made us have a surprise since the reception was "closed".
An envelope with my name, key and instructions made me think i was back home at Alentejo, Portugal, were people leave their front doors open.
After this first "issue" we found the room, on the 1st floor of a cottage style house, spacious, well cleaned and as advertised, so no surprises there.
At the time Hobo's Restaurant was 1min walk away, and an excellent choice.
Next day the breakfast was served outdoors and the scuba course started, a 2 day's with ocean dive included.
Excellent diving teacher, a north sea deep diver, excellent conditions and equipment.
The resort website described it as it was, at the time 11years ago google was stiil in its infancy and reviews were taken from yahoo or frommers, so the stay was an excellent Florida honeymoon.
A must for divers, scuba or snorkeling, and for fishermen since there's a lot of offer for sports fishing.
Will return as soon as the little kids allow.

Room Tip: rooms near the gulf of mexico are quieter.

Two Dads and our two 18 year old sons arrived at 11am on the first day of our stay, expecting to be told we'd have to come back later to get into our rooms. We were pleasantly surprised when the ladies in the office did all our diving paperwork handed us our keys.

We booked one of the waterfront apartments- 1 queen bedroom, a main room with 2 trundle beds,a small kitchenette and a huge terrace with a table and chairs,a hammock and a knockout postcard view- the terrace alone was worth the money. Rooms were very clean but as others have said, a bit dated. Nothing fancy but perfect for the four of us.

The dive boat was only a few steps from our door. Well kept and well run by Capt. Mike. We did 3 different boat dives over 2 days and the Captain brought us to great spots- some we'd visited before plus a few new ones. One minor issue was that on two of the three cruises, there were snorkelers mixed in with the divers, meaning we would be doing only shallow sites. Not a big deal in Key Largo since most of what you want to see is at 30 feet or less but we should have been told we'd only be in shallow water. Aside from that, all the dives and the crew were great.

Key Largo continues to be our favorite dive location in the US. Relatively healthy reefs, good sea life (we saw Shark, Moray Eels, Eagle Rays, turtles, etc.) and a great town-don't miss dinner at The Shipwreck- where we ran into Capt. Mike!

Room Tip: Rooms with waterviews have great sunset views

This is one of the more "affordable" places in Key Largo, with a good location within walking distance to a few restaurants and nice ocean front property. The rooms are a bit dated, but this was actually one of the more comfortable rooms we stayed on our trip hopping through the keys.

I loved that they had a kitchenette in the room and grills on the property because we ended up going to the local markets down the road for produce and down to the fisheries for fresh seafood.

They also have a nice little pool and a great seating area to watch the sunset.

They have a dive shop on-site which is very convenient if you're there to dive. We had a very unprofessional experience with Captain Mike confronting us about his dive master one night, but other than that the diving experiences were great, the front desk staff was friendly and this was probably our favorite place that we stayed in the keys.

Room Tip: Hit the Key Largo Fisheries for lunch or to grab some fresh seafood to cook back at the hotel. Much...

My dive buddy had stayed at Amoray before so we decided to use them again. We were immediately greeted by friendly office staff who checked us in and provided information about diving & local restaurants, etc. The room was simply average. They are older, very simple but clean rooms & met our needs but the more demanding person may not have been satisfied. The dive boat was conveniently onsite and nice. The dive staff was nice, knowledgable and accomodating. We were not able to dive one tank on a two-tank dive due to a diver injury so the office agreed to allow us merchandise equivalent to the cost of the dive which we appreciated. Buying a dive/room combination package with no extras added on was nice! We will consider diving with Amoray in the future.

We let the Hotel know we would not get in until midnight so they taped our key to the front door and told us to let ourselves in. My first thought was we landed in Mayberry RFD. I was not far off the rooms while older were clean comfortable and reasonable. In the morning we were greeted by the staff and our dive boat was but 50 yards away. After two great dives we returned to the resort and relaxed on the hammock on our deck. I can not say enough about captain Mike and his crew or the employees. I highly recommend this place for a dive vacation

We had a great time at this resort. They took care of everything, the diving, advice on where to go/eat and if there were any problems they were sorted straight away. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Amoray to anyone in the future.

The dive boat is comfortable and Captain Mike is a real star. There were 10 of us in our group and he ensured all our needs were taken care of on the water. The staff back on land were great too; Sandra and Rihanna were particularly very helpful.

All rooms have a kitchen with full facilities i.e. cooker, microwave, sink, fridge freezer, pots and pans, plates cutlery etc. Showers are good too - the hot water never runs out!

The quayside has a beautiful view during sunset but keep to the pool for a dip over the sea as the water in Key Largo on this side of the island can be a little silty (that's not a negative of the Amoray, all establishments on this Side of the land are affected by this - you need to travel offshore to avoid this).

Overall a lovely place for the money.
