I fell in love with this place immediately! It has everything I need and more. The most beautiful piece of property with a view to die for. If you need a restaurant, bar, entertainment and shopping then this isn't your place. If you like to enjoy the beauty of Islamorada and go out for meals or just stay and cook... More

Great place to stay in Islamorada. Rooms were clean and had all comforts of home. Staff very friendly and helpful to provide great service during our stay. Property had many extras to make to stay enjoyable like patio, outside grille, hammocks, chairs on beach, large pool, and tiki hut to relax under. Would return to this resort again.

We have stayed at Matecumbe Resort 5 times in the past 15 years and it's always been a favorite family vacation spot. The setting is lovely and the oceanside rooms are blissfully distanced from the highway making it very quiet and serene. We've rented both the large and small one bedroom units facing the ocean at very reasonable rates, and... More

The staff on check-in were friendly and very helpful. Our unit was well stocked with pots and pans and dishes and was very clean. The view from the bedroom was amazing and the next morning we awoke to the sunrise over the ocean. The bed was very comfortable. But the biggest surprise was the lovely grounds. So beautiful and well... More

I've stayed at this resort and many others in the Florida Keys. It is a true "fisherman resort" Nothing fancy, nice grounds, fun pool, exceptional office personel and the rocks are fun to fish off of if you don't want to go out on the boat. You don't have to pay to park your boat which most places you do!... More

We stayed in building 3 which was a good choice. I was surprised on how dated the unit was since when I called to book this resort in the fall on 2014 I had asked if the resort had been updated since we stayed here in 2011. They said yes. The only updates I saw were new flooring. However, it... More

I love the Keys and try to go at least once a year. I always stay at the Matecumbe. I have tried other resorts, like this one best. Beautiful sunrises. Good people working there. Never a problem. Never saw a bug in the unit. Beautiful grounds and beach area. This place is what the Keys should be like, laid back,... More

No planning, just pulled off the road and asked for a room with a view. Fortunately, for us, it was a week before Christmas, very few occupants, weather perfect, and office personnel pleasant - making you feel welcomed. Give it a try.

Matecumbe resort provides a relaxed, low key, clean, reasonably priced place to stay in Islamorada. You can rent by the day or week, the weekly rate being a good deal.There is no maid service, though you can exchange linens or towels during certain hours. This resort is geared toward families and fishermen. They have a wide open grassy area with... More

Ocean breezes, fabulous saltwater pool, nice people. I love it here. It's a DYI vacation, but that's okay with me. Borrow a bike, walk to Robbie's to feed the tarpon or rent a kayak and go to Indian Key. Bring your boat and use the launch and dock here. Borrow a blender and make a refreshing beverage, sit outside and... More
