The Florida Keys are full of tasty key lime pie, lots of six toed cats, and many turtles with bubble butts. It is also a lovely destination full of hotels and resorts new and old. The Amara Cay Resort in Islamorada falls into the new category and is a sleek and modernly  designed property right in the middle of the keys.

The small property has friendly staff, a great pool, beach, tiki bar and Italian restaurant with some great eats. To learn more about the property enjoy my pictures below or watch the video attached.

work desk, art work, coffee maker - Amara Cay Resort Review in the Florida Keys

The art work at the desk area brought I nice pop of colour into the room. I loved the grey stained wood floors. Also a bonus, water in a box!

modern, clean and sleek bathroom, stand up shower, toothbrush holder - Amara Cay Resort Review in the Florida Keys

The bathroom was modern with an awesome shower head (very important) and I think I was most excited about the toothbrush holder. You never see hotels with toothbrush holders. Why not?

Located almost right in the middle of the Florida Keys in Islamorada the Amara Cay resort is a great jumping off point for you adventures around the Florida Keys. Of the hotels that I stayed in while touring around the Amara was definitely my favourite and I would stay here again and again.
