Certificate of Excellence


Certificate of Excellence
Amara Cay Resort is anchored in the laid-back style and carefree atmosphere that makes Islamorada the Sport Fishing Capital of the World. Reflecting the easy tranquility of the Upper Keys, Amara Cay Resort seamlessly blends recreation with relaxation. Hammocks dot the sandy shoreline, palm trees sway in the breeze and a shimmering oceanfront pool beckons early risers. It's no wonder Amara Cay was named the winner of the 2015 Sandi Design award for Design Excellence Hospitality by the International Interior Design Association, which recognized our expert balance of relaxed atmosphere and luxurious style.

Dear kdundas, Thank you for taking the time to write a review regarding your recent stay at Amara Cay and the wonderful experience you had.

The only reason I gave this place 2 stars was because the staff was friendly and helpful and the location and parking situation was good. The bed was also comfortable. With that being said find somewhere else to stay if you can. After all of the resort fees and after everything

Great place, keep in mind that the beach area in the keys is not what people call a beach. Yes, you can swim and enjoy the water but it’s not a sandy beach. Its nice and quiet, great food and drinks by the pool. At night you can relax outside looking at the moon...

"We were 'upgraded' to a smaller room due to the wedding! Higher price does not always mean an upgrade!!!!!"
"Suites have more space, but the sleeping rooms in suites don't have windows."
"If the oceanfront rooms are sold out, no worries the garden view rooms have a great partial ocean view"
"2nd or 3rd floor, all rooms have a view of the water"
"don't use pull out couches or chairs (we heard very uncomfortable)"
