Our stay with Amara Cay was amazing! Starting from the front desk, Sophie made us feel very welcome also the crew from the Tiki bar. The rooms were super clean. I have to say we are definitely coming back! Customer service was over and beyond. Thanks to all we really had an amazing time.

We had a great time at Amara Cay. Friendly staff, love the room upgrade. It was great location near the pool and courtyard. Miguel and Alton are great. Only wish we could had added an extra night for cheaper...Since it was a slower Monday. But it was fine, went to another hotel for the night. Great stay though. Would definitely return.

The ocean view and hotel staff were wonderful. But, for the price, this hotel leaves something to be desired. With all of the hotels in the area upgrading and really refining their ambiance and updating, Amara Cay has sun umbrellas at the Pool that are worn and torn, our bathroom vanity was dated and falling apart, there was only one shower light in the bathroom, and the air in our room didn’t work well despite it being on the lowest setting. Don’t get me wrong, the lobby was nicely decorated, and the property landscape looked nice, but for nearly $450 a night, I expected more from the guest rooms and pool area.

Overall the hotel isn’t as nice as it is shown online, particularly the hallways to the rooms and the rooms themselves. Hallways looked dirty and also smelly, while rooms seemed poorly maintained. The staff cleaning the rooms were extremely loud and some opened my room “by mistake” twice. Lobby was very pleasing and the pool and tiki bar were fantastic. The pool area is what makes this hotel stand out. The Brazilian Barman at the tiki was very attentive. Also the location makes it very convenient if you are planing going fishing through the Buds & Mary’s Marina which is a short walk away.

The best Resort
location is spot on. The outdoor area is so spacious and fun. Pool is perfect and the drinks are cold . The room is just right with ocean views even being on the side of the building. Love the Place. We were on a honeymoon trip. Kenneth the Customer service was Awesome. Thank you Amara Cay resort for a great time.
