Poor 2.0
Unexpected ruined vacation :/
We weren’t given our “Gold Member” perks that were promised (two free beverages) (free early check in or late check out if available), which is why we booked the room, for the benefits as well as a work meeting at 10 AM therefore would have required the extra hour. On top of that the WiFi was not working for the zoom work meeting, and there was no service on my phone to let it be known I had no connection, so it was very hectic and Unpleasing. Also when by the pool (each time / each day) no one offered us service for food or drinks but the workers would seemingly walk by avoiding eye contact. It seemed as no one seemed to care or give any attention to the guests (at least my family felt that way). Lastly, we booked a family room suite, and it says in the booking details it has a balcony, etc. and the room we received was not what we were expected to receive / payed for. Very disappointed :/ we were so frustrated with the hotel and its service we just left and couldn’t even enjoy the resorts amenities. Or the trip at all.

Hawks Cay hides Jimmy Dean label until served sad.
Everything was average at best. I especially remember ordering the market breakfast sandwiches that were set out as fresh made but once I opened the box it was a disgusting Jimmy dean frozen package for 6$. Sad. I expect that at holiday inn but not while on vacation at Hawks Cay price tag. Their tiki pool bar was equally as horrible for food. We sat down for drinking and the pretzel bites and shrimp were obviously frozen and poor quality. I will say that anglers and ale and the steakhouse were great. They just need to re think the guest experience to dupe a customer with a Jimmy dean wrap.

Went for boat show. Upgraded to a suite! Can't complain!

Fair 4.0
We booked a king size bed and got 2 smaller beds as well as the cleaning staff left a dirty towel in our bathroom before we arrived. We had asked for 2 champagne glasses as we brought our own champagne and were then brought 2 wine glasses instead (concierge said they don't have champagne glasses after we received the wine glasses) which had finger prints and looked foggy all over, they did bring us clean ones after. Also due to covid they didn't have room services, which we've stayed at other resorts since this all started, and they've all had room services. For $900 for 2 nights we expected better than this. The staff was very nice, I will give them that.

Best resort in the keys
The resort is top notch. The amenities are awesome and everything is in great condition. The staff is probably the nicest staff at any resort we have stayed. We can’t say enough good things about them. It’s the perfect place to take the family and keep the kids entertained all day. Love the resort and how great the employees are.

Hidden gem 💎
This place was perfect for our family. They have dolphins on site. My daughter and I went swimming with them and made memories that will last forever. In the middle of the resort there is a separate pool and play area for families. They’re a pirate ship, separate pool, mini golf, soccer field, game room... My kids could’ve spent every day there. At the main resort (it’s all very close) there a 21+ pool and lounge area. Plus another pool and a nice lagoon you can kayak or paddle board in. The pools were heated. The food was all very good and reasonably priced. Everything was very clean and the staff was amazing. There were also activities for planned ever day a few hours apart. What can I say my family loved it and I highly recommend for anyone looking for a relaxing yet fun getaway.

Only on restaurant was open. And was 1/2 mile away from resort. They charged a $45 resort free to your bill. Was not sure what I got for that fee because they where 1/2 staffed. Had to ask for everything.

Good 6.0
The area is especially nice to stay, especially if a fisherman! The hotels lagoon and swimming pools are nice! Beware, the lagoons edges (beach areas) are very rocky and very hard on bare feet. The Covid situation kept some amenities closed or closing very early while we were there. Room seemed very "dated". Was expecting bit more for $$$ spent.
