2 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

We checked in on Sunday am. The clientele was mostly Cuban. Which was fine, but no rules are enforced. There is supposed to be a licensed driver on golf carts. After dark when the parents are drinking, anything goes. We were at the pool Friday evening when a group came and hijacked the music to Latino I like it but... More

I was reading some of the reviews of Sunshine Key and had to clear some things up. Firstly, let me explain something, most of you state in your review that there are a lot of "residents" that live here year-round. This is not true. Sunshine Key Resort and Marina offers a program called "Summer Program" where we pay a fee... More

Drove all the way down to the keys for this?? Unbelievable and total misrepresentation of what the park really is. Pulled in with our 42 ft 5'r and was greeted by front desk stating our deluxe site reserved 6 months earlier was not available (found out afterward that this was a good thing because it would have been right beside...

Office personal very nice, appearance on arrival looked nice. Go to camp site, (tight roads due to many vehicles parked in roads) some sites had two -three cars, stench of sewage, children driving golf carts, they will run you over if you don't get out of there way! The campgrounds looked like a ghetto overcrowded sites due to campers with... More

We visited this RV park in July 2014 for a week, it was definitely not on my list of favorite RV parks. The RV sites are very small and close together and not paved. It is a fairly large park and very full at the time of year we were there. The weekends are more noisy and rowdy with people... More

We stayed at Sunshine for 8 days. We had an elite spot by the marina. The site was pretty and during the week the campground was quiet and nice but starting Friday afternoon the refugee camp feel was back. Golf carts driven by kids flying around everywhere, Spanish being yelled constantly, music blaring, rude people walking through our campsite at... More

Everything was excellent. The manager was very professional and helpful. The pool was great. The front dest staff were very helpful and always smiling. I would go back anytime. The manager has a great operation and staff working for him. Great job Glenn..

Well we made our biannual trip to the Keys last week. Needless to say we did not stay at Sunshine Key Resort this year but in all fairness to Encore we did go by and through Sunshine Key RV Resort on two occasions to see if they had made any improvements since our horrible experience there last Summer. We checked... More

This place holds its on charm. Its not for everyone. Being located the the florida keys, a well known area for travelers to come through, it has its transition of guest cliental. Depending on the time of year the residents range from locals to transit persons. The atmosphere varies along with it as does the turn over in staffing. I... More

It was awful. We left after one night and that was even too long. There are a lot of permanent residents and they race thru the park on golf carts. I almost got hit walking my dog. It's crowded. It's dirty. It's everything that every other review that was poor wrote. I guess some people like it--they did get some... More
