The service was not as expected. The rooms were totally redone however TVs did not work the shower would over fill and they Are currently remodeling entire hotel so you were constantly you’re drilling and hammering in our unit for the unit next-door.

4/5 Good

The hotel is nice and pool area was great. But the resort fee was high considering they don’t give you anything for it. Not even a discount on the astronomically high snorkeling/sunset cruise/kayaking.

Our AC & mini fridge did NOT work. We called & asked to get it fixed, they said they’d send someone right away & we told them we’d be heading to the pool & greatly appreciate having it fixed before we get back. They understood. When we got back, nothing was fixed & it was now 78 degrees. I was upset but my fiancé assured me, it’d be fine & we should just go to sleep as neither of us like to cause trouble or make anyone go out of their way for us. So we went to bed, ended up waking up multiple times throughout the night because we were sweating & then we checked out around 9am. We just wanted to get out of there. This was our first “resort” stay & we were super disappointed. Not only were we so excited to stay in a “resort”, but we were also looking at it for a wedding ceremony location. So yeah, you could say we were super disappointed because we truly enjoyed our stay at a $140/night hotel the night before, more than our night here. I wish we would’ve known before we spent $500+ during our one night stay at Hawk’s Cay’s. Also, if you don’t plan on taking advantage of the spa or dolphin cove, you might as well save $$ and go somewhere else. Our hotel the night before had everything that they had: free kayak & paddle board rentals, fire pit, beach side, PLUS they had jet skis, bikes, free breakfast, AIR CONDITIONING, a working FULL SIZE fridge, & more. Definitely not going back.
