We just spent a week here and have no complaints. The resort is beautiful. I suppose the food could be better but there are also many restaurants in the area. Lynn, at the coffee bar, had great suggestions for places to go. Loved it!

Amaro Cay had nothing to offer but a pool. It advertises that it is a resort and all they had was a pool. The toilets in the room were low. There was absolutely no light in the room. Could not wait for morning to open drapes just to see. Very very disappointed with my stay there and would never go back. Also, the place is exorbitantly expensive to give NOTHING and then had to pay an additional RESORT fee of $45 per day for nothing. The only thing they did not charge us for was water. Never again!!!!

We enjoyed our stay at Amara Cay! The room was clean, gym was small but enough for a quick vacation workout, and the beach area and ocean view was amazing. We didn’t get a chance to use other amenities.
