The island is absolutely wonderful. The resort is very well maintained and you really feel privileged. You take a boat to get to your private island and the magic operates very quickly. (check out the pictures!) The grounds are beautiful, the staff very very nice. The cottage itself was very charming, clean, modern, everything was there. We had fresh water... More

By Key West standards, Sunset Key Guest Cottages is publicized as a high-end resort. My girlfriend and I recently spent 4 nights there. Overall, I give this resort a “C” average, but the devil is always in the details. The resort itself is beautiful; the setting is second to none on the island of Key West. The restaurant is probably... More

I vacation in key west a few times a year and we eat at Latitudes for dinner. I have stayed there in the early 2000's and thought it was awesome. This trip I took 9 friends and my wife. The service is excellent the people are very nice. The cottages are wonderful and the entire island makes you feel like... More

I came back this year, 4 years since my last visit and service had slipped just a tad. Very organized, just a bit more effortful. The cracks in service showed a bit. And the houses were a bit more "worn". But the setting is divine.

My new husband and I spent the last four nights of our honeymoon at Sunset Key Guest Cottages. It was the perfect spot in every way--beautiful and tranquil tropical setting, lovely and well-appointed cottages, and courteous and helpful staff. Our first night the staff surprised us with champagne and chocolates. We enjoyed two dinners and two breakfasts at the hotel's... More

Having stayed in the SSK cottages several times for the past 14 years, I can say first that yes it is expensive but there are ways to save. First, if it's just you or you and your companion tell them you need one bedroom in the cottage. Second, or bring another couple. When you get right down to it, the... More

My wife and I have been staying at the Cottages one week in the month of October for the last three years, soon to be forth. To say Sunset Key is amazing does not do it justice.

Sunset Key presents a peaceful island retreat off of "mainland" Key West. Contrary to other guests noting the dated state of the cottages, we greatly enjoyed our two-bedroom, three bath unit, nicknamed Pelican. The well maintained bathrooms, comfy beds, and spacious common room and kitchen provided the perfect home-base for a family of four. Just steps away, we could easily... More
