Want to stay right on the water and have tons of activities to keep your whole family busy OR have a relaxing couples retreat in the Florida Keys? Look no further than Baker’s Cay Resort, Curio Collection by Hilton in Key Largo!

You won’t believe what is waiting for you behind the dense foliage that separates the resort from Highway 1.

You’ll find friendly receptionists and a fun little boutique as well as a business center, extensive lending library and pool table all in the main lobby.

Spring for a waterfront ocean-view balcony room and you’ll have the perfect seat to the nightly sunset show. Enjoy your contemporary, nature-inspired d├ęcor where you’ll find luxurious bedding, cozy robes, a safe to store your valuables, a coffee/tea set up and a comfy sofa.

Outside, find the Hammock Trail and Beach with plenty of shade to keep you cool, only steps from the water. At Rock Beach you’ll find loungers galore, floating mats, kayaks, stand up paddle boards, a swimming/snorkeling area, jet skis and the site of a variety of weekly planned activities like S’mores & Stars.

Head to their well-equipped fitness center, grab a bike or take a swim in their pool if you need a little more heart-pumping action.

When it’s time for dinner, make your way to the outside seating at Calusa and definitely have the Crispy Brussel Sprout appetizer. Follow it up with a local favorite, Yellowtail Snapper and, of course, no Florida Keys meal would be complete without a slice of Key Lime pie!

Feeling a little more casual? Grab a couch or swing at Dry Rocks and indulge in their Mexican-inspired dishes like lobster nachos and one of their signature drinks while enjoying live music beachside.

Don’t miss the nightly complimentary sunset Champagne toast just as the sun melts from the sky.

Within a short drive, you’ll find Everglades and Biscayne National Parks and several state parks including John Pennekamp State Park, known for its snorkeling as well as fishing trips and Robbie’s, where you can hand feed the Tarpon!

Why not make Baker’s Cay your choice when visiting the Upper Keys?
