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

We stayed as a couple and really enjoyed the cleanthliness of the Island House. The staff was very attentive and helpful. They were engaging and friendly. The gym was really clean and well appointed. We stayed in a room with a private bath and it was so clean that you could smell it. The pool temprature was perfect and the... More

Nothing about the Island House is bad. Nothing. This was a return trip after having such a great time the year before! The day sort of progresses on site, it's quiet and relaxed in the morning hours and as people start to emerge from last night the ambiance picks up too. The staff here is hands down the best service... More

found the island resort to have a very friendly staff starting at check-in. The staff that cleaned the rooms went out of their way to keep everything clean. I shave in the shower and use a mirror in there. It has a little stand on it which i just layed down when finished. When i got back to the room... More

First of all, I was there with a large group of friends, which made it a lot of fun. It is cruisy and attracts an older crowd. I was fortunate to be in a larger room, as some are pretty small. Staff was friendly. The happy hour was great (4 free drinks for guests from 5:30 to 7pm every day).... More

Hands Down the Nicest Gay Resort I have EVER stayed at. Very Classy place. Friendly Guests of all ages and a very Friendly Staff. If your Gay and in Key West then the Island House MUST be on your bucket list. I only rated the location as average only because it is a little bit of a walk to Deval... More

I get one week off a year (the days between Christmas and New Years) and every year for the past 13 years I've spent it at the Island House. Every time I think about trying something new I instantly start to miss the pool, the hot tubs, the bar/cafe, the frisky atmosphere, and of course the service. Few people actually... More
