Vacay Pup Welcomes Pets to Hawks Cay

February 13, 2024

After four decades of welcoming multigenerational families, locals, and return guests, Hawks Cay Resort now welcomes pets for the first time as part of its new pet-friendly program, Vacay Pup! Fido can now join in on the Florida Keys fun with special amenities and experiences designed just for pups. Dogs of all sizes are invited to enjoy new dog-friendly menu items, select play areas, and other features available as part of their stay.

Guests can expect the Vacay Pup amenity package for their special friend, featuring a ‘Pup Nap Time’ door sign, in-room dog bowl, pup paradise relief bags, a special Vacay Pup play ball for Very Important Pups (VIPs), and dog beds upon request. Debuting with the program is Pup Paradise Park, a new outdoor area for pups to run and play, featuring pet-protected artificial turf and native shade trees.

A newly assigned Pup Planner is available for onsite travel information, including pup-friendly locations within the Keys, delivery of pet supplies, and local service recommendations.

To ensure a smooth and enjoyable stay, guests can register their pets upon check-in, receiving a Pup Pass bandana to be displayed on the pet or tied to the leash. Hawks Cay Resort prioritizes pet health, requiring up-to-date vaccinations as part of their commitment to maintaining a healthy environment. For up to two pets staying seven nights, a nonrefundable fee of $150 per night applies. A portion of this fee is donated to a local shelter in the pet’s name.
