    Family Friendly Unit 7051 Perfect Layout

    Fantastic resort, a true US gem with alllll the island feels. On property you will find EVERY amenity, snorkeling (private salt water lagoon), private dolphin experience, kiddie splash pool, mini golf, kids club, SPA, (STARBUCKS coffee!!!), countless dining options, on site marina with docking, gas, bait, fishing/diving/ snorkel charters ALL steps away from your room. NOTE: Villas are individually owned, so floorplans and furnishings CAN vary!!! BE SURE TO ASK FOR AN UPDATED/PREMIER UNIT. Premier Villa #7051 (Harbor Village Dr) has a GREAT family friendly layout with 2 bedrooms (2 twins/1 Queen) & a LARGE bathroom (glass enclosed shower-no tub vs the tiny en suite baths found in most of the other villas). This unit also has a powder room on the first level, which is really convenient (also not in all villas) and completely updated furnishings (post Irma), and a GORGEOUS WATER VIEW of the mint green sea outside the living and master bedroom areas...fully appointed kitchen (PUBLIX delivery is a phone call away) OR ROOM SERVICE! Perfect family getaway.

    Total professionalism.

    During this pandemic, we have been been deciding if to go or not to go to keys in june with our reservation. Well since my daughter is pregnant, we have decided to postpone our trip and Hawks Cay, April M, was so understanding and refunded our deposit without question. That is how I like it, no headaches, no begging, no grief. Thank you Hawks Cay, and will be back ASAP when baby is born and things calm down a bit.

    Beautiful Property, Beautiful People

    We have been coming to this resort for many years. Each time we come, our experience gets better. Between the beautiful rooms, the amazing staff, the awesome food, it just does not get any better. I would highly recommend this resort to both families and couples. Everyone here is just happy, the guests and the staff! The views are phenomenal and it is in an ideal location for exploring the Keys, IF you even want to leave this resort. It has really become our home away from home.

    Enjoyable stay

    We stayed in a villa as part of the Hawks Cay Resort. Although we initially had some challenges getting the appropriate accommodation (as we were initially placed in a villa that did not have as many rooms/beds as promised), this was corrected by the end of the first day. The children enjoyed the pools and lagoon area. The villa was a good size and had wonderful outdoor areas. We were on the water and had a manatee visit on our last day. There were plenty of activities in various locations on the property to keep the children busy. The property is also well located to allow access to external restaurants and shopping, as well as to do a day trip to Keywest. Overall, a fun experience.

    So much fun at the pool!

    We had so much fun dancing by the pool thanks to Miguel Lopez and James Martin who emceed and showed us line dances! It was the highlight of my trip!! The music was fun and the personalities of these two made it ll the more enjoyable. Each time I had decided to go sit down, they put on another great song!
