We booked a last minute trip from Miami to the keys. This hotel was amazing ... The room we had was super big with a large wrap around balcony . Two large TVs with amazing direct tv channels .. The valet was so nice and prompt ... The pools are fantastic and the servers are super nice and prompt . I had this large tiki burger with shredded pork on it , it came with fries and onion rings, it was out of this world .. The restaurant steak house has a great bar . Had dinner there two nights in a row . The two lady bartenders are so nice and all over it . I had the onion soup and Delmonico steak that you could cut with a fork , it was so soft . I had a deep tissue massage at the spa , the therapist was one of the best in the business , I forgot her name but I remember she was from Michigan. If you looking to rejuvenate from the big city , this is the place ... we will be back ! Read less

Stayed two nights in the Sanctuary Villas. The Villa worked well for a group of six. The private pool was wonderful to have. The best part of our stay was the fantastic dining! The special in the main dining room was the Tomahawk Chop, cooked to perfection! Our server was great and the manager Yunier stopped by our table to welcome our group.

This place is beautiful, but understaffed. We booked our reunion a year in advance and we are not impressed. The property is beautiful, but. The service staff is overwhelmed. We have requested help with check in, supplies, information or service and received attitude and poor follow through. We requested an early check-in a week in advance for my 96 year old WWII vet dad and he ended up sitting on his walker in a hallway for two hours in 90degree heat. Everyone else was checking in, but not us. Keys didn’t work, they would not supply the correct room number and we had to drive to the front desk 3 times and call 4 times. Finally we got in and it was beautiful but getting help was very difficult afterwards. Book golf carts well in advance. -none are available. Get to pool/lagoon very early for chairs. Don’t count on the bike usage, bring your own (I recommend they have a “jump” bike service to tool around property with various drop off locations. Overall, the staff do not seem happy nor friendly.

We had a great visit and saw Ben and Casey sing at the fire pit by the pool! We really enjoyed the entertainment! We always enjoy visiting Hawks Cay Resort, and love the views at the rooms. We loved the dolphin experience in December of last year as well!

It’s like going to a Florida subdivision that is water-based and not utilized properly. The services and guest service is below average, it’s crowded and you need to walk distances to get anywhere or wait for a shuttle for 20 minutes. The rooms are well maintained.
