We wanted to really like this hotel, but while the grounds are beautiful, the staff is not. Very unfriendly service all around. We were also excited to book this resort for the Lagoon, which is really nothing more than a large dirty, smelly, puddle.

We wanted to really like this hotel, but while the grounds are beautiful, the staff is not. Very unfriendly service all around. We were also excited to book this resort for the Lagoon, which is really nothing more than a large dirty, smelly, puddle. Our room overlooked the pool area, and had a lovely room of the pool and AC unit on the corner... The kid's pool area was ice cold, small pool was broken. Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Cheeca better. However, this hotel had a better atmosphere for families with small children. My kids played with a group of 5-6 kids in the pool. Read less

The Spa at Hawks Cay was fabulous for a mani/pedi with Sarah! My sister and I enjoyed a relaxful spa morning and left with beautiful nails. The workout room is also well appointed with stationary bikes, treadmills, and weight machines. Loving Hawks Cay for accommodations, pools, dining, and relaxation!

Hawks Cay is a beautiful property with great amenities. I have very mixed feelings because there are great things about this resort and also much lacking. I’ll write some of the pros and cons to make it easier to follow. Pros: The lagoon is beautiful and the sunset villa is very nice. It’s great to have a kitchen and laundry while traveling! There are multiple pools and other activity areas fun for families. The WiFi worked very well which was important since we are doing virtual school from here. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We have a lot of iguanas in the mangroves outside our room which may fall into the cons list for other people, but we love them! Cons: It was extremely disappointing that the fitness center does not require masks. It’s pretty small and crowded so I had to leave in order to protect myself. Not ok during Covid! Also, the pools close at 6 PM unlike all of the other resorts we stayed at during our two weeks in the Florida Keys. The restaurant Angler & Ale was very underwhelming. The steakhouse was so expensive that I didn’t even consider dining there. $55 for a steak?? No thanks! The closest town is Marathon so that’s where we’ve been eating dinner and grocery shopping.

Amazing. The Resort was clean and recently updated, love the no carpet design in guest rooms. Clean lines and no clutter....bathrooms are gorgeous with large travertine tiles and shelves as well as a bench. The view overlooking the lagoon and ocean were a total vacation in itself. Service was friendly and prompt, wish we could have stayed a lot longer but can’t wait to get back. A true Resort in every sense of the word....just perfect. Read less
