Looe Key Dive Resort is a reasonably priced hotel on the comeback. Under new ownership, the rooms are being renovated from their outdated state to nicer, with newly tiled showers and new beds and furniture. This is not an upscale place as the name "resort" would suggest. It is a divers hotel that supports dragging in wet gear and gives... More

This place is awesome! The rooms do need an update, but the location is great to Key West. Only about a 20 minute drive and there's even a bar on site. I would love to come back and do a dive with this resort.

Don't let the lack of curb appeal scare you off, this is a pretty comfortable place. Sure, the floors could have been cleaner and the air conditioner made a strange gurgling noise.... but really, there were fewer ants in the bathroom here than at the fancy B&B where I stayed in Key West (and this place was less than half...

This review is about the boat rentals available at Looe Key Reef Resort. We were staying on Little Torch Island and had our own boat but unfortunately experienced motor problems. We contacted multiple places about renting but Travis Basavage, at Looe Key, made the difference for us! He was accommodating, flexible and great to work with. We rented a 20... More

Outside your backdoor is a dock, you are on a canal halfway out for the day.. You can go diving on the #1 reef in the USA. You can go back to the tiki bar and look for your sunglasses, The restaurant is open early, the coffee is good, so are the eggs & toast. Then you can go to... More

The resort and the shop are old. Shop looks better than the resort. This review is about the dive experience. This shop is about 45 mins with good traffic and construction from old town Key West. We arrived on time and filled out our forms. Got thru the check in process to sit and wait for the boat to arrive.... More

It's got a typical dive resort feel to it. The first room we got was a little on the icky gross side. Room #29 I think it was....it needs some major overhauling! We saw the room our friends had and quickly asked for one of those!! MUCH better!! Very clean, the air worked great, had great water pressure. The gals... More

My wife and i stayed there this past weekend. Check in was easy and simple. The room needs a good cleaning, The sheets were clean but the room had a dirty feeling about it. It did not help that there was blood stains on the walls (several walls), like someone get beat up in that room a while ago. For... More

Amazing three days . With Tara's skills and her Patience she allowed me to accomplish recertification! I first dove in 1989 in the Panama Canal. This great grandma did it & so can you!

Returned to the Florida Keys to kick renters out of my house so needless to say, we weren't in the best of moods. My feelings soured more as our typical Keys lodgings were unavailable due to a visiting Navy carrier air wing and Gay Pride Week revelers. (Must've been a wild party). I've spent some time at the Looe Key... More
