Had to go on vacation solo this year, thought I would try something different. Having never been to a gay bar, parade, or any such place I thought it would be an epic adventure. It wasn't. If ur young and masculine, think twice before spending ur money on this overpriced bath house. If you're in your late 30's-40's and enjoy... More

After 10 years of vacationing at the Island House, our most recent visit solidifies that it still remains our number one place to relax and enjoy some fun in the sun! The staff is always professional and friendly and we have met several of the locals with whom we enjoy spending time. They have kept the property updated over the... More

Balanced mix of guests from 20s to over 60s all very friendly. The food at the restaurant its really good and I met few locals having dinner... More

Island House offers a day pass which is a great option to see the property and enjoy the amenities. Nice mix of clientele and helpful / friendly staff. I appreciate they provide lockers for storing personal items and allow use of towels. The sun deck is a great place to relax and enjoy the sights while working on a tan.... More

This was my first time to Key West and my partner and I decided to stay at the Island House. Overall it was a great stay though I have mixed feelings as to whether I would come back to the Island House. The room was nice but the photos make them look nicer and they are small and overpriced in... More

This place, for 40 years, has been the exemplar of what and how a gay resort should be run. Clean, exceptionally well staffed, fun, maintained to perfection. The perfect balance of fun, food, men, and management.

Even if you are not staying at the Island House it is the place to visit. Perfect service, a place to nude sunbathe, good food and drinks. A day pass for $25 if you are not staying there. Lots of chairs and towels.

I love this place! It's like staying with friends who happen to have a huge, wonderful space to entertain or being at a big private party with interesting and fun people. I've met folks from all over the world here and kept in touch with many of them. I always have a great time here. The decor is modern, sophisticated... More

I stay at the island house about once a year and I am always very impressed with the level of service I receive, cleanliness of the rooms, restaurant staff, etc. I was impressed by these things again during my recent stay. What I was not impressed with was watching the General Manager(I am not sure of his name...Justin or Julian)... More

This was my first time here. It was amazing. The staff is awesome from the time you walk in the door until you check out. After the first night of happy hour the bartenders knew my drink of choice. Didn't have to ask for it by name any more just said I'll take the usual. Went on to eat our... More
