Noisy staff right outside my door practically yelling at each other. 4 of them gathered by the elevator and hung out for about 20 minutes. Meanwhile I have to go find the maid 2 times to ask for clean wash clothes. $4.30 for coffee, $12 for an egg sandwich. Really? The change from Hampton Inn to "Resort" doesn't reflect the...

This is a very nice place in all respects , well appointed and properly maintained resort throughout. Excellent and attentive service at registration and at the bar. We did not dine here but that looked good as well. On our return from off site dinner we did enjoy some time at the bar

Over all we enjoyed our stay at Amara cay. The parking lot was under construction and they were working on the grounds which made for a less than desirable experience (obviously we were not aware of this prior to arrival) Overall the potential is there and I can see us going back. Our first room was smelly, so we had...

Due to work obligations I had to make a last minute change of date/venue for a family spring break. We traveled as a family of four with our 5 year old twin boys and were able to secure a nice last minute sale on their "suite" for 5 days. We had a ample bedroom with 2 queens and super comfy...

This hotel is beautiful - the service impeccable and the views outstanding. Sitting on the beach at night with all of the tiki torches and a drink in my hand was a great experience! The rooms were well-appointed and the restaurant and bar well stocked. The food was excellent!

We booked this hotel for a short spring break vacation. It was expensive and not worth. The term resort is a misnomer. There was a place to eat breakfast and several bars. The restaurant served nothing that anyone in our group wanted to eat. The pool was nice. The "beach" was awful. We were so disappointed we ended up leaving...

We had a very nice and relaxing time at Amara Cay. The hotel room was clean, comfortable, and cozy. The outdoors and the pool area are really nice and well kept. Laying on the hammock in the mornings is a must! The first night we were assigned a room with no view, and when we requested a room change the...
