Winter Getaway from cold and snow

Posted Mar 21, 2015
Beautiful hotel w/all amenities possible. My only complaint is food can be expensive for being a family resort.

Pros: water activites available
Cons: Food options are limited, drive into Marathon for dinner
Location: great location to explore the keys - halfway between key largo and key west,
We were here second week in March lots of families with young kids, they do have an adult only pool area so you can get away if not traveling with kids

Fantastic stay. Very relaxing. Harbor villa with a plunge pool, which our children loved. Easy walking distance to everything in the resort.

Spring break vacation

Posted Mar 17, 2015
The resort was beautiful. Our unit #5055 needed touch-ups including paint and replacement of many broken tiles in entry/ kitchen. The main bedroom was plenty large but the second bedroom was so small you couldn't walk around the bed. Those things aside it was a beautiful resort

Nice resort in a tropical setting.

Posted Mar 17, 2015
Pros: Staff was extremely friendly. Very comfortable overall. Nice tiki torches and fire pits at night.
Cons: We had a 1st floor room that had its own private deck leading to the adult only pool. It would have been nice to have a room number somewhere outside.
Location: Bahia State park and Key West a must. In the 6 days we were there we went to 6-10 restaurants " off campus." Keys have a tropical feel.
Overall a great place to stay. Wanted an all inclusive resort but was unable to find one in Florida. Nice place to relax poolside and have a few drinks and food if you choose. Also great to have an adult only pool at the resort for those who are traveling without children. If you pass on eating at resort (food was great though) there were plenty of great restaurants on Marathon & Grassy Key. It was nice to get out and try different places. Outpost on Grassy Key & Island Fish Co. were our favorites. Plenty of places to eat if you don't mind traveling 10-15 mins. Bahia State park and Key West were great day trips that are a must. Don't get fooled into "build your own bloody mary" at the resorts Alma restaurant. They need to a Northern person to show them how its done. Wasn't happy that they "built" it for me and left the hot sauce and pepper up to me, not even a celery stalk for garnish. I assume build your own Martini was operated the same way. Travel from Miami airport can be horrible, one lane North & one South can make for a long 100 miles.In the future I will get a connecting flight to Marathon Airport if possible. Definitely give yourself a little extra time if you need to drive anywhere. Hawks Cay offers plenty of activities if you choose. There's something for everyone no matter your age. Plan on visiting again.

Nice for families. They charge for everything.

Posted Mar 14, 2015
We stayed in an island view (parking lot) room. Nice, but beds were lumpy. Very clean and well kept. Check in was slow. People were nice. Resort fee seems odd since nothing is included except your room and a pool towel. Everything else is extra.

Our resort is perfect for a family vacation and we are so glad you agree. While it’s great that you found your accommodations to be nice, we regret if your bedding was not more to your liking. We would like to point out that our resort fee entitles guest to complimentary wireless Internet access; transportation throughout the Resort; self and valet parking; daily access to Indies Club and Calm Waters Fitness Center; unlimited use of our Putting Course, Sports Field, hard and clay court Tennis Facility; local and toll free phone calls; use of towels at all of our pools, mini golf at Indies Club and various seasonal inclusions. We do hope you have the chance to visit again.

Beautiful rooms! Lots of friendly helpful staff! Tons of poolside chairs! Awesome doliphin area! Drinks a little pricey but typical for the keys!

Beautiful hotel property and great service!

Posted Mar 14, 2015
Pros: Food, service, overall atmosphere of the property
Location: Absolutely beautiful setting in the keys
We stayed 3 nights over spring break and had a wonderful time. The staff was polite and attentive and went the extra mile to provide good service. We had reserved a basic room but it was well appointed and comfortable. We ate our meals at the resort and they were all delicious. There are many things to do on the property including putt putt tennis kayaking and lots of kids activities.
