Drove down for a 3 day weekend and booked this place based upon glowing reviews and price. The room was clean, spacious and up-to-date. Pleasant check-in and grabbed the complimentary shuttle up to OO-Tray for dinner (great place to eat). The shuttle picked us up from there. The grounds were recently renovated. Didn't eat at any of the two on...

Beautiful hotel newly renovated. Rooms great and ocean view and sunsets perfect. Mice bar and bar menu. The pizza was delicious and just enough for two people. Transportation from hotel to close by bars and restaurants provided. That's a big plus

We were moved here because our original hotel was having work done. We had a queen suite with lots of room and a great view. The beds were super comfortable and the hotel just had a nee pool installed and was very nice. Now for the things that cold have been better. The room was bare. There were three closets...

Our reservation was for 2 nights at La Siesta a short distance away. On attempting to check-in on 1/1 we were told there was no room for us and we had been allocated to their sister hotel, Amara Cay. With some trepidation we went to check it out. The result was great! Looks to be relatively recently renovated. Lovely taupe,...

Book an oceanfront room! Gorgeous views, modern decor, nice amenities...and did I mention the view? For the price, you cannot go wrong. This property is housed in a former slice and bake building, however the experience is far from the humdrum experience one would expect. The hotel is clean, comfortable, and well appointed. I am always cautious when booking "off...

We brought our 7 month old for a short 2 day vacation. We went to the pool and my daughter was terrified by the sound of chain saws and hammers working on the structure. We decided to go to the beach for some peace and quite and were asked to leave because they were taking photos. We went back to...

Stayed one night and found the staff to be amazing. The room and hotel super clean and appealing. Great place to stay on your way to Key West. We were told that this was previously an Outback Steakhouse! The location, Tiki Bar, and pool are all super. They were still building out some of the exterior landscape. It is on...

We stayed one night at the Amara Cay Resort. The staff were pleasant and helpful. The rooms are spacious and well designed. The downstairs reception and bar area is award winning stuff, and is just fantastic; the grounds and beach area are at the same level. We went out early in the am, sat in the chairs facing the ocean,...

I haven't been to the Keys in over 20 years & since we stayed with family during those visits I didn't have much 1st hand knowledge of hotel options.
