Hawks Cay was exactly what we imagined it would be! The setting, the staff, the food was absolutely perfect and wonderful to work with. Brittany was so attentive as was the banquet staff and both the rehearsal dinner and reception. The food was delicious and we wish we lived closer so we could eat it more often. The pictures on the website don't do justice to what it really is like. We had our wedding on Sunset Beach which was completely secluded, quiet and the backdrop of our pictures there were breathtaking. Our reception was on the Dolphin Deck where we had 35 guests, a DJ and a good sized dance floor and it was just the right amount of room. The view was gorgeous.

Hawks Cay has everything a destination bride could want-- gorgeous views, a friendly and professional staff, and a great resort to entertain her guests. We have rented a house on Duck Key (where Hawks Cay is located) for the past three years, but our first real experience with Hawks Cay was the wedding. We couldn't be happier! Laurie and her team were responsive to my every question, and very flexible when it came to requests! We even had a few guests with severe food allergies, and they were very accommodating and worked with us in every way! During dinner, our Banquet Captain ensured that we had drinks in front of us at all times and that we were able to eat our food-- which was more than delicious! After the tasting, we had such a hard time narrowing down our choices for the food. They also made a signature drink in my one of my wedding colors, and it was so, so good! Although we may be a biased and think that everything was perfect, every one of our guests that we spoke to said that this was the best wedding they had attended. I would highly recommend them!

I highly recommend Hawk's Cay as a destination wedding location. I had never been to Hawk's Cay before and chose it based solely on what I could find online. Although the wedding was not inexpensive (no wedding really is), I think it was worth the cost. I had a small (37 people) wedding at the resort and all of our guests stayed for several days. Laurie Eichman and the Hawk's Cay wedding team were very nice and thoughtful. We got married on the sunset lawn in front of the twin palms, a spot that was unbelievably peaceful and beautiful. Our reception was held at the Dolphin Overlook, a perfect and beautiful spot for great food and dancing. We ended up staying at Hawk's Cay for our honeymoon as well and could not have been happier. In the days before the wedding my husband and I stayed in a Harbor Villa and after the wedding we moved to a large Marina villa. I recommend both. Hawk's Cay is a great place for kids as well and all of the children in our group were in heaven.

Hawks Cay is an absolutely beautiful resort for a wedding. The event team helped me every step of the way and worked w/my planner to give us a wonderful wedding. Our guests thought they had died and gone to heaven when they arrived and loved the pools and lagoon. AND the food at the reception was amazing! I hadn't been able to sample the food before i choose it but everything we had on the menu was top notch and tasty. I also loved that you could have weddings of all types at this resort, from super fancy to small and laid back. They have many venues to choose from right on the resort, i loved having so many choices. I would highly recommend anyone who loves the sun and the beach and having a good time to consider Hawks Cay!

Hawks Cay was an absolutely beautiful place to get married! Our wedding was perfect! It was stress-free planning and so easy! We got exactly what we wanted. Choosing music, flowers, and food was so simple. We had a guitarist and ate at Alma - the food was amazing and the staff made us feel so special. And all of the activities are so fun to do after the wedding day!

Choosing music, flowers, and food was so simple. We had a guitarist and ate at Alma - the food was amazing and the staff made us feel so special. And all of the activities are so fun to do after the wedding day! Read less

We did all our wedding planning for a destination wedding from New York. Our wedding was in Florida. We had absolutely no time to fly to florida to check out vendors and stumbled across Hawks Cay Resort online. We booked them and proceeded with only the pictures on their website. The staff was very helpful throughtout the planning process and made us feel very special. When we arrived, the resort took our breath away! The grounds are beautiful with lovely landscaping, the rooms are updated and clean, the staff was tentative to our every need and they really delivered. We couldn't have been any more pleased. Beautiful resort, lots of activities to keep your guests occupied, delicious food, friendly staff - all around amazing! We love Hawks Cay!

I was lucky enough to have my wedding in September 2011 at the absolutely lovely Hawks Cay Resort. The level of professionalism, creativity and customer service far exceeded my expectations. Even when another venue cancelled my rehersal dinner within a couple weeks of the wedding, the staff at Hawks Cay jumped in and created a dinner party for 55 people. The staff was in constant contact with me with regular updates, responsing immediately to my inquiries and questions. Overall, we used their private boat Blue for a snorkeling trip, the dolphin overlook for the wedding rehersal dinner and the gazebo and Terrace Grill for the wedding ceremony and reception, along with the hotel rooms and villas for our guests. Amazing location and amazing staff!

We just can't say enough about Hawk's Cay!! Our wedding was like a dream; from the beautiful private rehearsal dinner next to the jumping dolphins, to the gorgeous ceremony site, to the perfect reception!

We first stayed at Hawks Cay a number of years ago on our first vacation together and thought it would be ideal to get married there as well, but only if they could help us make it exactly what we wanted…and they did just that. We spent the last year working with Brittany Norton and could not be more impressed with her as a catering manager at the resort or as a person. She was always quick to answer our questions, always tried to find a way to get us exactly what we wanted and made sure that our wedding was special. She was always quick with suggestions, comments and advice and made the whole experience seem easy! She took care of everything and then some, and our time ahead of the wedding was pretty relaxing and fun because we knew we were in good hands with Brittany. We booked two events, a welcome reception at the Beach Grill and the wedding (at the Landings) with the reception on the Dolphin Deck and in the Osprey room. Brittany looked after every detail of both events and made sure to be close by in case we needed anything. The wedding venue on the Landings was amazing, everything we thought it would be and then some. Even though they hadn’t done many ceremonies there, we insisted that it was what we wanted so they did not disappoint us with the set up and execution of the ceremony. Again every detail was exactly as we had imagined and they were there every step of the way to make sure it went according to plan. We have had many compliments on our wedding from those in attendance, including friends from England, Greece and Australia, and attendees from less than 2 years old to 83! Everyone enjoyed their time at the resort and especially enjoyed our events, in large part due to the attention to detail and the level of commitment of your staff. We also have to send our compliments to the kitchen staff because the food was out of this world, as was the presentation, service and set up of our various stations inside and out!

We stumbled upon Hawks Cay Resort while looking for a wedding venue near Miami, FL. So happy we decided to go with this Resort!! Our guests are still raving about the experience and we could not have been happier with everything it offered us. Beautiful venue space! We used the Gazebo for our ceremony, the ballroom for our reception and the dolphin deck for our brunch the following day. This is a hotel/resort so they do have certain rules with weddings such as requiring a wedding planner. We booked Peggy Russell at Destination Wedding Studio per their recommendation and we were so amazed by everything! Everyone worked so hard and it showed because our day went by without any mistakes (Thanks Laurie and Jennifer!). The food was delicious, our guests had NO complaints. Overall, very responsive, nice and accommodating!! No regrets at all! If you are considering getting married in the Florida Keys definitely do it at Hawks Cay Resort!!

I recently had my wedding (ceremony only) at Hawks Cay, and couldn't have been more pleased that I did so!! My husband and I got engaged there, so it was fitting to have our destination wedding in the same location. We worked with their wedding department to make sure we could afford everything, and Anna spent a ridiculous amount of time answering all of my silly questions, talking on the phone and via email as much as I needed. Booking was simple. They worked with us to make sure everything was exactly what we wanted and that we didn't pay for anything we didn't want. It was a little expensive, but they did all of the set up for us day of. That night, when we got back to our room, we found a lovely note from our coordinator, as well as a bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries waiting for us! It was a really nice touch, and one we very much appreciated. We ended up doing our reception elsewhere, but it had nothing to do with Hawks Cay, just wanted to go to a local restaurant we'd fallen in love with. The price was a little high for their catering, but not much more so than where we ended up going. All in all, it was a GREAT experience!

Perfect venue for our wedding which was small and intimate. Of course, the perfect weather we had was a bonus. We booked a large villa for our family and is was an awesome gathering place. We had a problem with the restaurants having slow service and offering a typical "fried and fattening" menu. However, the F & B department did a spectacular job on the wedding dinner buffet. Extremely fresh and tasty. And they were very flexible with the menu with us. The spa was wonderful too.

Worst Place for a Wedding!
I recommend Hawks Cay for its accommodations and food. I DO NOT recommend Hawks Cay for weddings or events. There was too much that went wrong to write it all down. Overall, it was an awful experience that I do not wish on any bride. The event staff was unprofessional, unprepared, and lacked the ability to make difficult decisions in a timely matter. Here are the highlights.
1. We were offered a ceremony coordinator who was offsite and an onsite wedding coordinator. These two individuals did not communicate and they were horrible at their jobs.
2. We signed up for a wedding package. We were not told that we were expected to contact all outside vendors.
3. Hair and makeup appointments were never put on their schedule. I called the week before to confirm. I was told my party was not on the schedule and the hair and makeup person was on vacation.
4. For dinner, we had beef and fish for our guests. We asked for ONE chicken dish. They were unable to accommodate this.
5. We had welcome bags for our guests. We asked the front desk three times to delivery them. We ended up delivering them ourselves.
6. The day before the ceremony, we went through ceremony and seating arrangements. I made ONE change to seating arrangements. This was never incorporated.
7. During the walk through, rain options were never discussed. A tropical storm was present for the whole weekend. It wasn’t until we were taking pictures before the ceremony was I asked which place indoors I wanted to have my ceremony. I had to send a family member to make the decision. Since the location of ceremony was set up so late, my guests had to help out with setting up chairs.
8. About 15 minutes prior to walking down the aisle, I was asked which way I wanted to walk into the room.
9. Our flowers arrived and we were not notified. A family member saw them at the front desk.

I had my wedding there in November 2011. If I can save even one bride from the hassle then writing this is worth it. I don't look back on my wedding experience with happy memories. When I called to book in December 2010 I was sent a menu and pricing - ridiculous by the way - but it was a wedding so kind of expected. I put down a deposit, and the next one wasn't for another several months. When I called back to make arrangements for the payment plans I couldn't reach anyone for weeks! No one would return my calls or emails. Finally I learned the lady that I booked with was no longer there, and no one was really sure what the status of my contract was. Then, when we did finally establish another contract and I FINALLY got the room block for the hotels the price had DOUBLED plus I was being charged for 2 site fees even though the ceremony was 20 min, and there was one before it so there was no set up cost. I couldn't get anyone to even take my money so when I did finally get everything settled we were paying $3000 a month becuase it was so close to the date! I could go on and on and on but it was stuff like this around every corner. The actual day was nice, and the actual coordniators were helpful, but it was a huge disorganized messs. The kicker was AFTER I checked out and AFTER I checked to see that everything was taken care of as far as the rooms my husband and I were covering and AFTER I was told that it was fine they tried to take me to collections for not paying $500 of a room tab I didn't know about until 2 weeks AFTER we had left (right around Christmas). It's pretty, but not worth the money, time, or headache for sure.

Side note: Spa service was EXCELLENT. And rehearsal dinner at Tom's Harbor House was very nice and reasonably priced as well.
