Very nice

We had reservations for a king ocean view room for 3 nights. We arrived early and our room wasn’t available but we were told it would be shortly, so we went to do a few errands while we waited. We received a call shortly telling us our room was available but we had been upgraded to a suite, how wonderful. The rooms were spacious, comfy beds, 2 patios and the best view ever. Several reviews have talked about the slow service at the Tiki Bar which I kind of agree with. The first time we waited 20 minutes to place an order and finally my husband got tired of waiting and went to the bar to get us some drinks. The next time we didn’t have to wait so long. The drinks were good, salads are delicious, and a good breakfast. There is a free shuttle service but we didn’t use it. The pool is warm & refreshing. There are all sorts of water sports available. The resort is beautiful & worth your time to stay there.

Came down to the Keys to help in the rebuild. Things were way out of sorts. A diaster like this puts people on edge just because of the kaos. Amara Cay was the first place I lived and worked. Miguel , Donna ,and Alex right away made me feel welcome. These folks get it. I was just here to work and they were so accomadating. It was not only them many of the staff had the same idea. I could only surmise how I would feel if I were a guest. These folks are all about service to others. Sand ,Sun ,Ocean Views, Pool, Tiki Bar, what else could anybody need . The place looks great. Just wanted to say Thanks to: Donna for always going out of her way to make sure I got my Mail/Packages. Miguel for always beiging happy to see me and thanking me for my work. Alex for the hard work he put in the place to get it open.
