I always have been impressed with attention to customer service at the Island House, but during this visit I saw some of the best in the industry. My friend had $100 lifted from his wallet by a member of the cleaning crew. He went to the front desk and took full accountability for not using the room safe, but he... More

My partner and I have stayed in a few different gay resorts in Key West and there simply isn't a better place to stay. They have everything you could want. Really no reason to leave.. An awesome pool, 24 hour on site restaurant (that's actually VERY GOOD) and a poolside bar. An on site gym, poolside cabana for massage as... More

Yes, it is expensive, but I challenge you to find someplace nice to stay in Key West nowadays that isn't. You get four cocktails, anything you want, for free during every happy hour, so that is like $40 you aren't spending in the bars. (Unless of course you don't drink, then you are losing out.) I found the place to... More

We stayed here in May for about a week, had one of the larger (2 bed) rooms right off the pool area. If you have one of those rooms, try to stay on the top floor as folks on the ground level hear folks above them moving about in their rooms. Well, visitors here know what they'll get, it's a... More

At over $450/night for a deluxe room, we expected more, especially for a 4-night stay that cost over $1800. with taxes. The "suite" was very small and dated. There was no ventilation in the bathroom at all, not even a window. The clothe shower curtain was moldy by the second day. I don't know how they get away with that... More

I enjoyed my stay, we stayed early March 2014. They did not have rooms available onsite, so we booked the 2 bedroom apartment right next door. This was very spacious, but expensive. We arrived, parked - they showed us our apartment, it sleeps 4 very comfortably, with tv's in each bedroom and a tv in the living room. It had... More
