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

I am at the airport after spending 4 wonderful days at the Equator Resort. This was my first trip to Key West and I could not have asked for a nicer, friendlier, cleaner place to stay. The guests were all ages some partnered and some single. The happy hour every day from 5 to 7 was a great chance to... More

Key west it self is a charm. Equatorian hotel is more than I was expecting. Especially the pool area. 2 reasonable size pools. Two Jacuzzis. Lot of sun bathing chairs and very nice crowd in there 40s. The happy hour it's great time to socialize and mixture with other guests. Good breakfast but nothing too especial. The only bad thing...

The next afternoon was the same with all the nonpaying friends taking over the pool again with very loud drunken behavior. We paid a lot of money and... More

I was very impressed by this resort. I was unsure on how it would be because the website needs updating. I love the plants everything is so peaceful and clean. The Front Desk and Management team do an amazing job. I was only here one night in the beginning of April. I wish I would have stayed here than my... More
