I had the most relaxing week at Amoray Resort. I stayed in 12H . It was the best view of the water and the sunset view every night was breathing. I had dolphins swimming by early in the mornings and Iguanas sunning in the trees beside me in the afternoons.The boat ride was amazing. The staff was fantastic. The rooms were clean and housekeeping left a goodie box daily for necessities. I will definitely be back.
Had a great family stay at Amoray. It's a wonderful location with nice rooms and pleasant beach area to hang out at. You don't need to be divers to stay here - we're not, did no diving or snorkeling, and had a great trip at a very reasonable price.
We loved Amoray! Our room and bathroom were CLEAN. The amenities at the hotel can’t be beat. And the sunsets…STUNNING! If you want a fancy, schmancy, high end resort, this isn’t your place. If you want clean, comfortable, affordable with great amenities and views, pick Amoray Resort.
We had an amazing experience snorkeling with Amoray! Our Captain Nikki and first mate Aaron were so friendly and informative. They took us and 10 others out to 2 snorkel sites on the reef and one was at the Christ Statue right under the boat stairs! The ride out was about 50 minutes. Each site allowed 1 hour in the water. 2 full hours of snorkeling! The ride through the canal and then mangroves was so nice. There were 3 divers on our trip for a 2 tank dive. The boat is very safe with plenty of seating. Easy in/out of the water with wide stairs. Cost was very reasonable at only $58 per person. It was a fantastic experience and we highly recommend booking with them! You won't be disappointed!
As a person who spent a decade as a dive professional and several years managing a dive resort I am extremely impressed with Amoray. It isn't the quality of the premises, but the quality of the team they assembled and their attention to what actually matters. The moment you arrive you feel extremely welcome. Whether that is cuddles from dive dog Nino or the kindness from that every person who greets you - they all care and are happy to be there. The service centric attitude clearly comes from the top down. The owner was out on the dive boat filling the role of support crew - the least glamorous role of the trip - and it was wonderful to see the way he lead his team and involved himself with the guests. The dive equipment is in excellent condition. During a difficult period for the tourism industry, Amoray have kept on top of the most important aspects. The regulators, wetsuits, fins, and BCs were all spotless. None of the usual signs of wear that have been further exacerbated by financial and supply problems that the pandemic has created across the dive industry. Their boat is well maintained, spacious with plenty of shelter, and well run by the dive team. Aaron, the young Divemaster who led my dives (which he found amusing because of my immense experience) was an excellent guide. For such a young man with relative inexperience to impress me is an incredible testament to not only his aptitude and attitude, but also to Amoray's recruitment attitude. The resort is cute and quiet. More in the theme of a motel than a boutique resort it is of the same style of most accommodations along Key Largo. It is conveniently located near some affordable and enjoyable bars and restaurants whilst there is a food truck in front of the office. The rooms are EXTREMELY clean - which is so important during a pandemic and demonstrates how the staff pay attention to what truly matters. Everything in the room was in perfect working order whilst there was plenty of bedding and storage. Other reviews are accurate in the basis of some of their complaints. The rooms' decore is dated - but not unusually so for The Keys - and there are elements of disrepair that can be improved - notably caulking or grouting in obscure places and the toilet would sometimes continue running after flushing. Furthermore, around the the dock area there is a fair amount of rotted decking that requires attention so do watch your step. HOWEVER, none of these MINOR issues detract from my enjoyable experience at Amoray and the owners should be applauded for managing and maintaining the resort so well during such a difficult time for the industry. If you want to spend all day in your room and require the latest style and amenities then perhaps consider a different accommodation. In contrast, if you need a clean, comfortable room to sleep in right by the water and put your money in the hands of kind people - stay at Amoray. Either way - DIVE WITH AMORAY. P.S. Tell Nino I miss him too…
