We had so much fun dancing by the pool thanks to Miguel Lopez and James Martin who emceed and showed us line dances! It was the highlight of my trip!! The music was fun and the personalities of these two made it ll the more enjoyable. Each time I had decided to go sit down, they put on another great song!

We received the unfortunate news that the Florida Keys will be closing on 3/22/2020 due to the COV-19 virus. The resort reached out to reschedule or refund our deposit based on this development and the call was handled in the most professional way in advance of our arrival. While we understand the need to take such actions, this is another financial blow to this beautiful resort after the damage done from the hurricane 2 years ago. The resort and people are terrific and we will be back when things get back to normal with travel. Read less

Due to the Covid19 issues, we needed to cut our visit to the Florida Keys short and return home. I called to cancel our reservation and spoke with Angie (from TX) and she could not have been kinder and more understanding. Fear not Hawks Cay...our family will return and we look forward to our next visit. Again, thank you, Angie, for your kindness… Read more

We had reservations for a week’s stay during Spring Break 2020, but cancelled our plans due to the pandemic. Hawks Cay was great about the cancellation, despite being inundated with calls. They even offered to refund our non-refundable deposit. We will book again soon and hope to get to enjoy a stay later this year.
