Not so long ago I was enjoying crossing of bucket list travel items in Key West. Afterwards I had the opportunity to check out the keys a little farther up; luxury family travel at Hawks Cay Resort which is perfect for larger families like mine.

On arrival you are greeted by the friendly staff awaiting to help you with your bags on the southern beach style porch (that only comes with the feeling of The Florida Keys) as you enter a vibrant open concept lobby.

During my walk through, the views of the resort had me instantly relaxed for that luxury family travel feel. There are areas for all guests to enjoy from the main pool and bonfire family area to the serenity/adult only area but what I loved best was the island feel I experienced when I stepped onto the private resort beach.

Hawks Cay Resort has a variety of accommodations to suit every size of travel party and budget; from resort standard guest rooms to Tropical Villas with 2-4 bedrooms, there are options for everyones needs.

During my stay I had a King Junior Suite with a private balcony that overlooked and stepped onto the main pool deck. It was a beautiful room with a bed and pillows to wrap you in luxury for the ultimate luxury family travel vacation. If I could have taken that bed home with me, I would have; I may never sleep well again.

The Tropical Villas are rentable residences with anywhere from 2-4 bedrooms. Between the resort and villas there is more than enough space for large families, weddings and family reunions with views overlooking the harbor. When we take the family back; we’d love to explore the villa option to accommodate our large family.

We enjoyed a deliciously fresh breakfast buffet at the Ocean restaurant right on resort. For dinner, my favourite place to eat was the Angler & Ale restaurant where we had a variety of menu items to sample. Not only was the plating of each food order stunning, each dish was as delicious as the next. If you are staying at Hawks Cay Resort, you must eat at this restaurant; the Mac N’ Cheese, Blackened Fish Tacos and Key Lime Pie (with meringue topping) were at the top of my list.

If you are a family looking for luxury family travel, Hawks Cay Resort is the perfect destination for an all-inclusive feel.
