Birthday trip with my husband. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. Enjoyed free drinks poolside and lounged the day away. We met lots of nice guys that return yearly. We would love to make this an annual trip as well. You should check this place out.

We have stayed at the Equator more times than we can count. We love it. This is a gay guest house (men only) where you are able to make friends, get lots of sun, and enjoy Key West hospitality. Unlike some of the other gay hotels/resorts on the island, there is a great mix of men who are enjoying the... More

The Pro's: Property is beautiful, well maintained and functional. Our room was larger then the norm and nicely furnished. Quality bed, linens and pillows. New bar area is impressive. Adult channels, theme parties and friendly guests enhance the experience. Areas of improvement: Breakfast was week even by continental standards! Nothing fresh, healthy or any protein. One small trash can for... More

We stayed here for five nights on our first time in Key West; and it was a pleasant stay. The check-in wasn't very welcoming, we arrived during the resort's happy hour and we felt like we were intruding with the festivities because the receptionist kept saying it was happy hour and he needed to go back to the bar and...

The Equator is a beautiful place to stay while in Key West. The place is gorgeous. Clean and well kept. The setting is ideal. The room was spacious and very clean. It is close to shopping and restaurants. Everything about the place was excellent. I would definitely return when back in Key West.

We stayed for the second time in this resort, after staying 12 times across the street at the Oasis. The previous time in the Equator was before the annexation of the former Coral Tree. We were not pleased with this stay for a number of reasons. The accommodation is not cheap, but that is the case with the whole of... More

Very nice and friendly guest. Really wanted to just come, relax, read, and enjoy the pool and was able to do all of that with the great... More

Loved this place. The two pool areas were landscaped in such a way that I could always find a shady spot. The bartender at happy hour "Oscar" was a charmer, and the free drinks were a nice bonus. This is not a family place, read their website carefully for a better explanation--not a place to send mom and dad. It... More

I have been going to key west for 30 years. Over the last 10, had been staying at Coconut Grove/Oasis until it turned “straight”. Then switched to the Island House for the past several years. As IH was booked, we decided to try the Equator for 4 days. We had a pleasant stay at the Equator and don’t have any... More
