Great First Key trip
Our family took our first trip to the Keys and could not have asked for anything more. The staff was exceptional and friendly. We will definatly be back
Jennifer, us3 night family trip
Fair 4.0
The parking was full and people parked how they wanted and it took us several minutes to get out of our legal spot. Food at the pool being closed at 5 was super inconvenient when we just checked in at 4. Pizza was good but there was no other choice. Pool being closed and the lagoon too at 7 was terrible. First the sun was still out and people could still be having fun. I paid so much money to not even enjoy the pool. Dinner reservations were full and very hard to get. We had to take the food to the room. Towels were not even exchanged or requested to be changed, There was a beach towel rule that was ridiculous and should have been told at the front desk at check-in. There was no room service at all. The masks were told to be on but not enforced. Garbage from every room was left outside looking terrible. We requested as soon as we first got to our room that our safe was locked and they said they would send someone immediately over and when we left 2 days later no one had been there. The price of the room had been increased dramatically for that weekend to exploit the tourists/ the normal rate is much lower, but there was no service that could support that price. It was a very disappointing stay and you will probably never see me again and I will not recommend this place to anyone.

Won’t return
Very disorganized we were given a handicap room and that was never told to us during reservations or check in when I complained it was take it or leave

Hawks Cay Stay
Gorgeous place!! It felt like we were in the Caribbean! We had such a great time. Only complaint is that the chairs fill up quickly (need to be at the lagoon by 8:15-8:30 for a spot for the day). The kids club pool was a good place for our fishing days when we didn’t get to the pool until mid afternoon. We will be back!
Heather, us6 night family trip

Pros and cons
Overall our experience was good. The resort’s location was convenient to Marathon without being in the busy traffic. We loved the pool and lagoon though there were not enough chairs for guests. Food and drinks poolside were great. We participated in the Dolphin Connection which was the best part of the trip. The units are individually owned and we had trouble with too few cooking supplies, hot tub didn’t heat, dry wall in the ceiling falling and uncomfortable mattresses. Not what we expected for the price we paid.

Very good 8.0
Lovely property overall. However the customer service was horrible It was our anniversary, husband had ordered flowers and chocolates to be in our room upon arrival. However when we arrived nothing! Husband had ordered a week before coming down, when he questioned he was told simply “we don’t do that” Staff was not friendly at all. Very disappointing, for such a lovely property.

About average
The entertainment was lacking, never what it said it was and not on time. Food selections where minimal. Drinks way over priced, service was average. Every thing in the bathrooms stayed damped, no fan to help dry things. Mattresses were very firm.
