This is an amazing place! The staff is friendly and everything is amazing. This truly is the only key you need! The grounds are perfectly maintained and the entire resort is clean. Great food and room service when you prefer to stay in for the evening.I would strongly recommend hawks cay to anyone!

Hawk's Cay Dolphin Prison & Resort

As far as properties in the upper Florida Keys go Hawk's Cay is one of the nicer ones. If your not there for the fishing and/or diving Hawks Cay has a pool and lagoon to keep kids busy. A couple of tips to make your stay enjoyable. 1. Verify before arriving the room you reserved is the room you will get. When we checked in the room had little resemblance to the one pictured on the Website. Also check the location of your room. The resort is a sprawling campus with lots of variation between room locations. Ours had a view of the restaurant roof and dumpster ally with some ocean in the remote distance. Although the property is relatively well maintained the rooms are showing their age. Our toilet wouldn't flush unless the lid was removed, yikes! 2. If you are getting in late make sure you know your dinning options. Most of the restaurants close up at 10pm. The Anglers Ale House offers a limited menu from 10-11pm and I mean limited, Point Judith Calamari, Crab Fries, Yuk! Choose room service between 10 and 11pm or eat before arriving. The bar and pool menu is equally limited and not up to the caliber this resort strives for. Other than the difficulty with the room and food the resort is very unique. They have some live dolphins in a small pen that guests can pet for $ and a lagoon the kids can paddle in circles on if that's your thing. We will be checking out Boca Chica on our next visit.

Attended Wedding at Hawks Cay Resort

Hawks Cay Resort was my nephew's wedding location. The weather did not help to have the ceremony outside, so they got married in the hallway close to meeting room where the celebration took place. I did not like the way this was set up, maybe a better location would have been better, but I guess the 40 guests only deserved to be placed there. :( Our bedroom was OK, large spacious bathroom and super friendly staff.We venture out of he resort for dinning and breakfast becase their prices were just outrageous! $5 cup of coffee was unnaceptable. We enjoy the dolphin's show, sweet and entertaining.

I would absolutely not risk going here. We stayed for 5 nights and unfortunately did not realize that we were being eaten by bed bugs until the last day! I lifted my mattress and low and behold- about 10 bugs on the box spring. We reported right away to the front desk and they acted as though they cared until we called back a few days later and they said there were no bugs found. Well, not so. I have pictures of bites, bugs and unfortunately it's a costly nightmare to come home and prevent them from getting in your house. Hotel was not helpful nor nice to us about this. Very disappointing.

Beautiful resort with many breathtaking views!!

this was my 2nd time to Hawks Cay and I believe the BEST yet, we had a very nice room with a private balcony overlooking the tranquil pool, the fire pits at night were awesome, there was plenty to do or not to do. We enjoyed it and would go again, however the drinks and food is pretty pricey but you really never have to leave the resort.
