The location is great, just before the Seven Mile Bridge, unfortunately the bridge park is closed for several years. The pool and spa area is the nicest part of the resort. The pool is rather small, but deep on one end, and there were plenty of chairs and lounges when we were there. It is a great place to watch...

This is a very nicely located resort, right by the bridge, with nice views from most locations, including the pleasant pool. There is free WiFi in most locations, and a shelf of books to borrow. There is assigned parking, which is nice as you need not hunt for parking. The guests are older and moderately friendly. The rooms, judging from...

Fabulous place! Perfect location, size, view, amenities, everything. Loved the pool area! Great local eateries and shopping. Short drive to Key West. Loved my time there and look forward to going back

The facility is located at the beginning of the seven mile bridge. So you can readily visit Key West or attractions on the other Keys. A kitchen is provided in the units with food stores reasonably close. The building itself is dated (has a 70's look and probably was not updated since then). Therefore, it could use some renovation. The...

The staff was wonderful. The view can not be beat. Service was over the top. I am not sure after reading some of these reviews if we staid at the same place. It is the best view in the Keys! IF I could buy 4 weeks in a row I would!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The girls at the office were not only smoking...

My family has owned a timeshare at this resort since before I was born, and I've never had a bad time here. Pool is heated now and the hot tub is a great place to sit and stare at some stars. Lots of seating outside to watch the sunset over the 7 mile bridge, which is beautiful by the way....

You CANNOT beat this location. Unfortunately, there is a fair amount of deferred maintenance that could be easily taken care of but isn't. The building is old and not updated (think green bathrooms!), worn cabinets, etc. but is very clean, functional, and housekeeping is great. Furnishings are fine. A few inexpensive cosmetic fixes would go a long way to improving...

The check in went smoothly. Took a day to get the one flat screen television to work correctly. The staff was friendly, but they leave quickly after, and are not here on Sunday when you have some issues to resolve. There were also TV's in the bedrooms. The one in the master was old and barely functional. The one in...

Great setting, right on the water near the 7 Mile Bridge. Convenient for fishing off the docks, accessing the various state parks and beaches, and visiting other keys. Rooms were fairly clean, but rundown. The a/c worked well, so no mold or musty odor. We found it odd that timeshare owners were charged for utilities.

We have owned a Timeshare at Hawks Nest for over 25 years. It is not a hotel as others have described. If you want friendly staff, great views and a condo full of amenities, then Hawks Nest is for you! The pool area is gorgeous, plenty of chaise lounges! No need to run down early AM to drop your towels...

“When arriving from the north, make sure you make your left turn before you end up going over the seven mile bridge and coming back another seven miles.. Try to get an end room as they have a larger lanai. This is a time share property so book early.”
