Reviews for Hawks Cay Resort
We are still on vacation here. We actually extended our stay we are having such a nice time. This is my first vacation without my husband who recently passed. I'm with my three young children and a friend. The staff could not be more kind and accommodating. Our first day here Caylee our waitress explained the resort and amenities. She was training but so friendly. I love good customer service. We have a beautiful Junior King Suite right off the main pool which is so convenient since I have kids at varying ages so one takes a nap the rest do not. I can keep an eye on everyone from our deck. The food has been wonderful. The buffet breakfast excellent, all restaurants from high end to casual serving good food and options for adults and children. The Dolphin connection was amazing. My kids LOVED it! We got to pet and feed the resident pod here at the resort. Everything you need is here at the resort. From snorkeling to deep sea fishing, a salt lagoon with kayaks! Overall an excellent vacation. I want to send a special thank you to Leisa our main waitress by the pool everyday for Amazing service. So kind and friendly, she even went out of her way to carry my babies food back to the room with me when he was crying. She went above and beyond and it was so nice seeing her everyday.

We have been back in the UK for just about a month now, ample time to reflect on the 3rd stage of our South West Florida trip. The drive from Marco Island was relatively trouble free, and after a couple of hours, we were in the Florida Keys! This was our first visit to the Keys and we deliberately kept away from the more well known Key largo and Key West, opting to stay at Hawks Cay Resort Duck Key, roughly midway between the two. Were we disappointed with the choice we made? No way. We wanted somewhere to give us what we considered to be a true reflection of the Keys, away from the more touristy areas and we were more than pleased with the choice we made. Duck Key is a small island (Key) on the Atlantic side of the highway, approached over a small bridge which takes you into the resort. We stayed at the hotel, although there are apartments and bungalows on site. Valet parking is complimentary although there is self parking if required. We used the valet parking option. It was good but a little bit more laid back than the service we had used on Marco Island. But then, that is the Florida Keys! The hotel itself was really good. A spacious reception , comfortably furnished and air conditioned (very welcome in almost 90 degree heat). For the second time on our trip however, despite arriving well after the check in time indicated, our room was not ready for us so we had a 45 minute wait, not ideal when you have had a long car journey. Nonetheless, when we finally got to our room, we were more than pleased. Very spacious ensuite room, with a balcony. Ours did not have an ocean view but we were aware of this before we arrived so we knew what to expect. And the balcony afforded us a great view of the resort complex. The bathroom and shower were excellent, The resort facilities were excellent. Situated on shimmering blue/green water, the views from any where waterside were absolutely amazing. There are three pools. The main pool area is populated mainly by families, a sea water enclosed lagoon and a tranquillity pool are for the over 21s, an area where we chose to spend our time (we have both done the poolside with young family bit a good while ago!). So relaxing just to chill out, catch some son, swim in the pool , and as I said earlier, just taking in the ocean panorama, far away from the traffic heading over the bridge in the distance en rout further south. There is an excellent restaurant on site where we had a lovely meal one evening, and on the resort site itself is a restaurant called the Ale and Angler where we went on two of our four evenings. This was brilliant, sat on a balcony, overlooking the tiny harbour and ocean as the sun set, enjoying lovely food in a relaxing atmosphere. Just great. Had we stayed a few more nights, we would have ventured off resort and tried some of the many restaurants in the nearby Keys of Marathon and Islamadora but we didn't feel that we missed out on not doing so nearing in mind the length of our stay. Breakfast was buffet style in the Ocean restaurant. The resort is about an hour's drive from Key West, and this is a must do visit if you are staying anywhere in the Keys. All in all, we had a great time at the Hawks Cay Resort Hotel. The atmosphere is chilled and with very little in the way of shops in the immediate vicinity, very relaxing too. We deliberately stayed at one of the more 'unheard of' Keys and we were not disappointed. We can both recommend Duck Key and The Hawks Cay Resort to anybody venturing, like us , to The Keys for the first time.

Went here for my friend's 40th birthday, and we rented 3 villas (2 bedroom, 1.5 baths) in Sunset Village. The beautiful pool behind the villas was almost always empty (yay for us!), so it felt like a private resort. Sunset villas were about a 8 minute walk from the main pools & restaurants, but with having our own kitchen & pool, we didn't really need to venture out much. The rooms were beautiful, the view was gorgeous, and the staff was friendly. They have complimentary valet and self-park, but in the villas your probably want to park your own car. The pools were clean, and they have the salt water lagoon which you can paddle board or kayak in ($10 for 30 mins - we did not go), as well as the Dolphin Connection, where you can watch the dolphins for free, and hopefully catch the trainers out there with them. We took the shuttle that the resort runs (also complimentary), but usually just walked, as it is just in a constant loop, so you may be waiting a few mins. Servers will bring you drinks at the adult pool (daiquiris were $12 each) - really adds to the resort feel. Lots of lounge chairs & umbrellas. Walk over to the Dockside Store for your kitchen stuffs, but it is a pretty pricey ($9 for a bag of coffee, $3 for filters), so I recommend stopping at the grocery on your way into the Keys.

It is before mid night, we are hungry and there is no place, not even a gift/snack shop to purchase anything. When I called for assistance was advised "Pappa Johns delivers until midnight". Really??? Very disappointed in this "resort" and their lack of even the basics of customer service. Going to bed hungry.
Hawks Cay is a wonderful place. Beautiful grounds. Lots to see and do. The magic of Scott Xavier was a great surprise. The guy is amazing! If you want your stress level to go from 100+ to 0 ... This is your place!
