Glunz Ocean Beach was a hidden gem. So thankful we found them after another major hotel chain messed up our reservation. The ocean front suite was brand new and well designed, lovely and comfortable. Erica who helped us with our reservation couldn't t have been more kind and accommodating. I would definitely love to stay at Glunz Ocean Beach again.

We rented a three bedroom villa for the weekend. This is our 3rd trip to Glunz this summer! We have enjoyed it immensely every time. The staff is great and the owners are accommodating. This time we actually rented the kayaks and had a great time seeing the other side of the island We have been coming to the keys... More

We spent 4 nights here in August in the middle of a trip through the Keys. We loved everything about this hotel. The standard room was plenty big enough for 4 of us sharing. The air con was brilliant and made no noise (very rare we discovered on this trip!) We paid for an ocean view room which was definitely... More

We stayed at Glunz' at the end of a 50 mile bike ride from Key Largo. The "Villa" we'd booked provided us the perfects space for spreading out - physically and mentally. Also, the clothes washer and dryer were a help with really sweaty clothing from the ride plus salty swimming kit from the ocean. Would love to come back... More

Great and quiet place. Recommend the local restaurant on the waterfront, about 7-8 min walk from the hotel. Large great room in the hotel that is right by the sea. Quiet and great atmosphere of the hotel.

Stayed for 3 nights last week. The place has been renovated but that doesn't hide the fact that its basically a 1960s motel building and so rooms are cramped and bathrooms tiny. The balcony is little more than a public fire escape and so you have zero privacy in your room and on the balcony. At this price it should... More

Thank you for your review. Yes our building was built in 1967, but our property was completely renovated two years ago. With our balconies, yes the are a community balcony. Our beach does have seaweed due to the sea grass and wind direction. We do have a service that removes the grass from the beach. On some days the wind... More

We spent 2 nights there. At check-in we were allocated what must have been THE WORST room of the resort, i.e. dark, dingy, cramped and overlooking a massive and noisy a/c unit and the car park. Upon enquiring if there is another/different room available we were advised that they were fully booked apart from an Ocean View suite - which... More
