Thank you to Denise and Traycie for a very needed respite from a cold northern winter! You both provided superb concierge service. My sisters niece and daughter all converged upon your lush botanical heaven in mid January to celebrate some special birthdays. We were thrilled with the room and suite, the stunning views, beachfront, activities, pool, jacuzzi, plant life and... More

My husband I stayed in January 2015. This hotel was so wonderful! The room was perfect and well equipt and comfortable. We loved the waterfront on the bay along with the pool. It was so nice to be able to watch the sunset with a glass of wine on their land pier. Also the grounds were gorgeous and the botanical... More

My husband and I drove to see the Florida keys and we stayed one night at Kona Kai. I wish we had more time during our trip but this place is special! This is the perfect place to unwind and forget about all your stress. The owners thought of everything, right down to a free wine reception in the evening... More

We loved everything about Kona Kai. We booked side-by-side rooms with our daughters, staying in the Key Lime and Banana Suites. They were wonderful - situated between the office and the tennis court, they were very private and quiet. The pool is lovely, and the beach is pristine, but we spent most of our time on the dock, overlooking the... More

We stayed in the mango room. Perfectly fine although the A/C did kinda stink. We enjoyed the privacy afforded by having a free standing room. We enjoyed the complimentary botanic garden tour. The gardens are really small - just around the rooms, but interesting none-the-less. Enjoyed the free tennis, unfortunately the ping pong table was under construction. We brought some... More

While in Key Largo, this is a wonderful place to stay. The service is second to none I have received in any resort. They are there to help you with everything. Our check-in time alone, with Tracey, was worth the stay. The resort is secluded, quiet, we were given an upgraded room. Lucky for us, we were there in the... More

Resort guests get a tour of the gardens free. The tour last about 1 1/2 hour and is EXCELLENT. Very knowledgable guide. The beach and waterfront area are... More

My wife and I stayed at Kona Kai recently. The staff was extremely helpful and polite. The feeling we got was that we were visiting a friends or family members home. The units are decorated in Keys style, tropical and fun. The view was great and the SUNSET from the dock, beautiful !!! After enjoying the gardens on our own,... More

My new husband and I chose this beautiful place for our honeymoon and we were not disappointed! There was the most amazing view every morning from our very private bungalow. It's a secluded, quiet and peacful environment. It was very comfortable, clean and cozy. The sunsets off the end of the dock every night are incredible. It was perfect for... More
