This place was absolutely fantastic. From the Event planners a year before to the front desk staff, cleaning staff, pool bar, ALL catering staff and especially the Chief "Bravo". Every person that attended my wedding weekend could not stop raving about this place. ALL food was incredible. We spent 6 days and 5 nights and only ate off property once and that was to a sister property. Chef Cash and his staff are geniuses when it comes to GREAT food. All of my three events were just perfect. Kenneth the front desk manager deserves a huge raise. We had 35 rooms with people checking in at different times and he made it extremely smooth for everyone. Jenn Weiden your staff is absolutely amazing.Sent on 11/15/2019

Having a destination wedding can be so stressful, but not if you have it at Amara Cay!Sent on 06/12/2019
This venue was absolutely perfect – It is beautiful, the staff is the BEST I’ve experienced in the Keys, and WOW – Was the food TO DIE FOR!
Our event manager, Andrea H., was simply amazing! From our initial tour, to the day-of, she was hands-on and ready to help!
She has the patience of a saint – Was always so quick to respond to my many requests, and she was able to make sure our day was everything we dreamed it would be!
Our Day-Of Coordinator, Andrea R., worked so well with my planner, and as the Bride, I thought it was PERFECT!
To Miguel and staff – We thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We can’t wait to come back to our home-away-from-home!
Amara Cay Resort has a high end feel, relaxing feel. You will love sitting oceanside at the resort. I have photographed several styled shoots at Amara Cay and all will be featured in bridal magazines! This resort is relaxing, inviting, entertaining, and breathtaking all in one. I highly recommend it!
We love Photography and Video at Amara Cay Resort. The elegant island style of this resort is beautiful for any Wedding.
