Swain's Cay was everything we could have wanted for an incredible price!! Cheryl and her staff were attentive and kind - never missing a detail. Our taxi driver/tour guide Rhoda started our trip off on a great foot. She took us to the store so we could stock up on water and snacks. Our room was air conditioned and WIFI...

We recently hosted a bonefish tournament at Swains Cay. This was part of the well-known Redbone Celebrity Tournament Series, which raises money for Cystic Fibrosis research. We had 22 anglers (11 teams) from all over the United States - most of whom fish several major tournaments each year in the Florida Keys. We chose Swains Cay as a result of...

Stayed at Swains with a group of 6 guys (55-70 years old) for bone fishing trip for 5 nights. We rented a car, arranged the guides. Cheryl and Kristian stayed in touch via phone and email throughout all of the arrangements - excellent communication. All of us have been fishing at other lodges in the area and agree that Swains...

In Dec. 2014 two of us visited this lodge to try our hand at bonefishing. Finding and catching lots of fish, four of us returned in 2015. Results were much as expected. Great fishing, warm temperatures, good food and comfortable surroundings. Everyone at the lodge worked very hard to make our experience a pleasant one. I hope we get to...

We spent a couple of week at Swain's in november. Very nice and smiling staff for a friendly atmosphere in a pleasant setting. The room was clean and confortable. Food is not amazing but quite decent (the chicken curry was my favorite). A very good place to stay for the fishermen, situated halfway between the north and the south bite...

Spent a week at Swain's with a group of fly fishing friends. Well run operation. Food was good but not exceptional. Staff very friendly. Nice beach right out front door. Fishing guides were heat. Would stay here again.

Stayed over night in a business trip and accommodations were mediocre at best. The room had a cabin feel to it but how the lodge is run, it feels more like a bed & breakfast. There was no tv in the room but the free wifi definitely made up for it. Dinner is only made according to how many guests...

Hello Alexis, Thank you for your feedback on your stay here with us at Swains Cay Lodge. We are primarily a fishing and eco-tourist lodge; providing water sports and eco tourists activities and typically a fishing lodge does not provide television and other amenities provided at a leisure hotel.
