This was a really nice place to stay. Very nice room and pool area. Staff was super friendly and helpful. I would have liked to have seen more hammocks (I only saw one?), drink service by the water where chairs are (i only saw pool side service). Also, although there is a Keurig machine in the room, it would be...

We just returned from a nine day stay at Amara Cay. This hotel has added a "green" area where the old pool was located, and it appears to be quite a success. They have a number of games which can be played by both children and adults. Since we were there during spring vacation, we saw a lot of children...

We are very happy with the recent stay at Amara Cay Resort and would highly recommend the resort to anyone particularly families with young children. The facility is very clean, and lively and modernly decorated. The pool is my eight-year-old's favorite. We also enjoyed our time on the little beach with different types of comfortable chairs. Location is great too,...

We stayed at the resort for 6 days. We had never been to the florida keys in the past. The hotel is great. Nice staff, especially liked the breakfast crew! Pool is brand new and great. Rooms are nice and updated. This is not a huge resort, but instead a boutique, which is typical of the florida keys. I would...

We were just here for 1 night on our way out of the lower keys. Booked on booking.com, clearly listed 2 adults and 3 children. When we checked in they said they don't have cots. If you are a family more than 4, you'll need 2 rooms. Resort was lovely, grounds are very nice. Not a "walk in" beach, Stairs...

We have been staying her for years. The staff is AWESOME from housekeeping to G.M. The bar staff is amazing, Omar, Eddie, Hannah at the tiki bar are ALL top notch. Their managers, (mike and Anna) are well versed and more than accommodating. The pool is amazing as is the waterfront. The recent courtyard upgrades are all a part of...

Very excited to see the renovations, one of us had stayed here ages ago during many travels to the Keys. Stopped by last year for a beverage, the hotel and grounds weren't complete. New placement of the pool is very nice! The calm courtyard works great for morning yoga and outdoor reception space. Bellman very helpful, checkin staff very pleasant,...

Loved the tile floor, comfy beds, keurigs and refrigerators in the rooms. The pool overlooking the ocean was amazing (and warm!) View from our 5th floor room was fantastic. Yes, we overlooked some roof but beyond that we could see the sun set on the bay and see the water on the ocean side. Staff was very helpful (particularly Cesar!!)....

This small resort has a warm cozy feel. The view from the ocean side rooms is peaceful, but other rooms would experience bad road noise as people race to Key West. Beautiful big clean pool but no opportunity to walk on the beach--not many beaches in the Keys, so be prepared for that. The restaurant has a delicious fresh breakfast--best...
