I came with my kids in mid March and had a great time. This is the 7th year in a row we have come and the 2nd since the Glunz Family took over. They did a remarkable job renovating the resort. The beachfront rooms are comfortable and have a nice kitchen with living room, comfortable pull out queen and master... More

We just returned from a week at the Glunz resort. Pictures do not do it justice...our suite was clean, spacious and had a great view of the pool and ocean. Pool was great and the weather was fantastic - having the Cabana right next door was a major plus. We enjoyed happy hour sitting poolside and it doesn't get any... More

We spent a week at Glunz OB Resort in mid March. Had not visited the Keys in many years and unsure where to stay. We chose this place because of the great reviews on Tripadvisor and truly enjoyed our stay. If I understand correctly the place was recently remodeled, they put some serious thought and effort into this! The rooms... More

Even if quite expensive, this hotel is really a must: this is quiet, far from the motorway; the view is superb and the pool is quite warm. There is no breakfast but some tables are available on the beach and we can bring our food.

Thanks for the review, Olivier. It is always quite expensive in the Keys in the winter time and if you compare what you are getting for the price, I know we will come out ahead of the game! We appreciate all your comments and look forward to your next visit. Try us in September for best pricing! More

Well, this is a bitter pill to swallow and a long time coming. Rating was tough because the reality is we really enjoyed the property and the staff and thought it was a good value…..until we got the bill! To be fair, I have rated this review based on the overall experience. I won't write the book version here, let's... More

I trust your billing issue was satisfactorily addressed. Our repeated efforts to reach you via phone were to no avail and it is always our desire to take care of our guests in every way. We believe that verbal communication is as important as written. I hope that you will come again since that type of misunderstanding is generally unlikely.... More

The room was small but clean and the cleaning staff is exceptional considering the amount of beach sand in the area. There was no "Do Not Disturb" sign in the room so we could not refuse service by just hanging a tag on the door knob. The ocean view was excellent. Access to guest laundry services was a plus! Two...

Thank you for your feedback and we appreciate the good comments about the room and staff. I totally empathize with you on the smoking issue as I am a non smoker. However, ALL of our rooms inside are non smoking and it would be difficult if not impossible to control the smoking of persons on the outside. We will check... More

You will not be disappointed with this hotel. Great Location. Great beach. Great beds. Cabanna breezes next door is great. I could be on the balcony and see the kids in the pool and my husband at the bar at the same time!!! Leannes for breakfast is just a 5 min walk away and sparkys is right next to Leannes.... More

Sad to be back to winter in Chicago! We spent 4 beautiful days at the beautiful Glunz Ocean beach hotel!
