I adore this place. I don't think I've ever felt more relaxed than when I was on vacation here. What could be better than walking directly from your enormous front porch onto the sand? Getting a massage in a gazebo on the beach might be better, but luckily you can do both! You feel like you're living on your own... More

This is my favorite place of lodging (can't really call it a hotel) in the world! And I've stayed at some truly lovely places. But this place has an ambiance that can't be replicated. Let me paint the picture. You can't call this place a resort or a hotel. It's more like a private village, a handful of lovely cottages... More

Although we did not actually stay in the cottages at The Moorings, we did book spa massages and facials at their Island Body and Spa. The spa was absolutely wonderful.....one of the best massages I have ever received (coming from a massage junkie). Joan was fantastic. As some in our group had beach front massages, we were permitted to use... More

We just completed our 6th stay at The Moorings (started coming in 2009), and although we're always sad to leave, we never leave disappointed. It's hard to describe the beauty of the property in a brief review, but I will just say that we've always enjoyed what we consider to be a very special experience. We've stayed in 4 of... More

Pros: Staff – Friendly office manager Natasha and night watchman David. View - Looks picturesque. Cons: Drinks - There is no restaurant or room service. You must buy your own food and drink. This can be kind of fun - but it's not really obvious when researching the place. Beach - Beach is concrete with thick layer of seaweed about... More

The Moorings was not only beautiful, but provided us with the tranquility and quiet atmosphere we only thought possible on a private island. We will be back for sure. Their attention to detail was amazing and evident in the orchids growing from nooks and crannies in the palm trees. Everyone who sees my vacation pictures says.."that place looks like a... More

Sandy white beaches, stunning villas with rustic island charm, and tranquility in the Florida keys at boutique hotel standards. Perfect Miami get-a-way to restore the batteries from the hustle & bustle!

The Moorings has become our family holiday spot going on 5 years now. Our son was 16 months when we first came to stay in the Maroni House. Each year he has explored & learned something different as he roams around the beautiful white sand beaches and exquisite habitat. This year he learned how to ride a bike as well... More

It is rare that you can think of nothing that could be improved. From the friendly and efficient welcome this was a superb but too short a stay. There is lots to do, but doing nothing was better. To hours lying in the hammock at the end of the dock, enjoying the absolute peace and beauty of the place. The... More

We enjoyed our stay at The Moorings, and its definitely more of a peaceful romantic retreat than a hotel/resort due to the large grounds and comfortable cottages. For us it was perfect. Overall we had an enjoyable stay.

Once a coconut plantation, The Moorings Village Resort offers one, two and three bedroom villas, cottages and plantation houses with wraparound verandas, colorful Bahamian-style shutters and cypress interiors, each uniquely decorated. Hidden in delightful seclusion under coconut palms are the resort’s magnificent natural white sand beach, heated pool, tennis court and Island Body and Sol Spa, which offers beachfront massage treatments. The Moorings Village offers guests absolute privacy and tranquility with all the comforts of home, including well-equipped kitchens and laundry in most houses, individual dining rooms and living room areas, air conditioning and ceiling fans. Luxury amenities include large screen televisions, elegant hand-painted tiles, oversized soaking tubs and shower stalls, as well as plantation-style porches overlooking the ocean or views of the lushly landscaped grounds. Guests may enjoy dining at the resort's two Zagat-rated restaurants, Pierre's Restaurant and Morada Bay Beach Cafe, located just across the road. The restaurants share a private beach and are the site of the monthly Full Moon Party. ... more   less
