Stunning hotel

Posted 17-Apr-2018
Absolutely picture perfect. The room is beautiful. Ocean front suite - highly recommend. Food and drinks at the tiki bar were very good. Love the beach area with paddle boarding and kayaking. Will definitely stay here again.

Great hotel. The room was spacious and clean. The shower did not have a door, just a curtain and it caused a lot of the water to come out of the shower. Also, there were no hooks to hang the towels. They had bars that were low near the toilet paper holder. So if the towel was drying it would wet the toilet paper. The sink did not have extra space to place toiletries or other items you would usually take on a trip. Some noise in the halls and maids knocking despite a do not disturbe sign. Breakfast was delicious and the hotel amenities were good.

Tired but functional

Posted 11-Apr-2018
We spent 3 nights at the hotel. It has 3 stars and looked like it. Physically, the hotel looks tired. The pool area is good, and especially for young children as it starts very shallow and only gets deep very gradually. The beach is ok, but does not slope to the water but is retained by a sea wall. The soft coral sand is great. Te restaurant is appalling, which is why it is always empty, with the staff more interested in anything but serving you. If they sorted the restaurant, and gave the hotel a fresh coat of paint and deep cleaned the carpets in the corridors, the hotel would be transformed.

Amazing, relaxing, beautiful place! Loved it!

Posted 6-Apr-2018
We just got back from a 4 day stay at Amara. We usually stay at Tranquility Bay in Marathon which we love, but decided to try something different. Amara is such a sweet charming place. It’s not a big resort, but it still big enough to have everything you need. It is a super clean resort with friendly staff. The pool, tiki bar, and beach were amazing. Our room was decorated so cute! The beds were comfy. When I ordered more towels, they came within 5 mins which I really appreciated. Miguel, who is the GM, door was always open and walking around to talk with guests. In the 4 days I was there, he approached us to ask us if we were enjoying our stay almost every day. It’s nice to see that. I did laundry late at night 2 nights. I had to get quarters from the front desk (which I would suggest maybe a small coin machine in laundry room). The ladies were so nice! I hated to ask for change at 12:30 at night but they didn’t mind. I ended up talking to them for awhile. We have 2 sons 15 and 12. They didn’t want to leave. They enjoyed all the amenities offered to them from the games in the courtyard to the water activities. My husband and I would get coffee every morning from the lobby and take a walk on the beach and sit on the cute chairs on the beach to enjoy the beautiful scenery. Loved that! Overall, if you are looking for a resort that has everything you need, clean, friendly staff, quiet, beautiful grounds, then I would suggest Amara Cay for your next stay.

Pros: The pool is so nice. The paddle boards, kayaks and little kid boats are so much fun. The bikes were priceless. We rode to lunch at Midway cafe twice!
Location: The location is great. Located right next to Bud N Marys.
This is our second time to stay here. We can't say enough nice things about it. We took advantage of all the amenities. The kids loved the corn hole, pop a shot basketball, water sport toys, bikes etc. All of this is included in your stay! The hotel has a great vibe! We chartered a boat out of Bud N Marys which is located right next door. After an amazing day of fishing with Capt. Nick Stanzyck we walked our fresh catch over to Lazy Days for them to cook it. It was Delicious!! We had dinner one evening at Morada's the best sunset we have ever seen. Absolutely beautiful. We are ready to go back soon!
