A friend of mine owns a place here and I stayed with her mid march. After all my driving around Marathon, it is clear that Hawks Nest is the best place to stay. Gorgeous view of the sunsets. Located right before the 7 mile bridge to Key West makes it easy to find and interesting to watch the night time... More

What a lovely setting and view. But the staff .... not so much. We were charged over $400 for services that were never discussed with us. The room service was spotty through the week and nosey in our belongings when they were there. The staff entered our room unannounced and this was the office staff. Not a professional environment.

This is a very nice property on the water. There is a great view of the seven mile bridge. It has a small marina, hot tub and pool. The pool and hot tub overlook the Atlantic. There is no beach on the property. There are lots of them quite close to the property. The two bedroom condo is roomy and... More

I have been staying at the Hawks Nest for many years. The condo is very centrally located in the Keys so you are never far from whatever you choose to do. Staff is always helpful, maids are very friendly and efficient. Laundry on site. The best thing....the pool!!! Overlooking the Atlantic and the Seven Mile bridge is awesome. It is... More

This is a time share and I stayed here last May. I enjoyed the 2 bedroom condo. however it was a little dated . The pool area was clean and inviting. This had a view of the 7 mile bridge and the sunsets each night were breath taking . It is set on a sea wall so there is no... More

This began as a visit to friends who have a partial ownership (something a bit more formal than a timeshare.) The 2 1/2 ride from MIA airport was something I was dreading. The first 20 minutes of that trip were the worst, with snarls all around the airport and through Miami. But after that, it was a if the skies... More

We just returned after a week in the Keys. This hotel was in a great location. Right on the water next to the start of the 7 mile bridge. Perfect! one hour from the Key West.

We traded through Interval International, which has become increasingly more difficult. Great places are often not available, as they were 30 years ago. Hawks Nest has a steady, loyal group of folks who come year after year. This place isn't for everyone--but if you like no frills, quiet, and restful, you'll enjoy it. We stayed in 204, a large two...

Been coming here for over 30 years and it is still my favorite place to vacation. There couldn't be a better view of the sunset. Rooms are great size and very comfortable. Pool is always clean and office staff very helpful. A little wear and tear because of the age of the building but they do a pretty good job... More

“When arriving from the north, make sure you make your left turn before you end up going over the seven mile bridge and coming back another seven miles.. Try to get an end room as they have a larger lanai. This is a time share property so book early.”
