Amara Cay Resort is excellent in every possible way. The front desk has an excellent team- but there is no more gracious host than Sophia "Sofie" at the front desk who cleared up a booking error and gave us the most amazing room, caring about every aspect of our stay and enjoyment. The resort is beautiful. Updated, stylish, SUPER CLEAN, and gorgeous. The common area indoors is very well furnished and designed including a bar and restaurant. The outdoor common area is the most amazing resort experience in the Florida Keys. Classy, meticulously landscaped, comfortable, welcoming and thoroughly luxurious. The green space has games, beautiful plants, a resident chicken and even some adorable little gecco lizards in a tree. The silky white beach stretches with plenty of seating and peace and quiet overlooking a sparkling turquoise ocean. The pool- is everything. It is a gorgeous pool, with plenty of room, kept expertly clean and warm. The seating and umbrellas around the pool are generous. There is a tiki bar next to the pool that even serves lunch and milkshakes! Every night, there are two bonfires with seating. The beach leads to a dock and staff is at the ready to lend you a kayak. The beds are most comfortable and the rooms are delightful. Quiet, clean, peaceful sleepign with excellent wifi and television service. The showers are beautiful stone showers, with floor to ceiling glass enclosures. This was the best vacation experience of my life!
