It is an older, well kept motel. The staff were awesome. When first arrived, there was only one luggage holder, so just put both suitcases on floor. The next day, on return to room, they had both suitcases up on holders and the room was very clean! We stayed here 2 days, in route to Key West. Great price and... More

We stayed for 3 nights and really enjoyed it. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The place has a nice little boat ramp and dock. The pool and spa were great, and the facility was well maintained. House keeping cleaned our rooms daily and even set out a placemat for our dog's bowls and left him a "pet" towel. Our... More

I absolutely love it here. We have been coming for years but it's even better now with the new changes - cleaner, prettier and just perfect. We feel right at home and it's due to the great management of this mini resort. They are true friendly and yet professional people! Wouldn't stay anywhere else on Islamorada.

Just spent a wonderful week at Sands of Islamorada.The managers and their family are great people.The grounds and units are immaculate. There is a small beach with chairs for lounging and watching the gorgeous sunrises. Pool, hot tub and b-b-q area to enjoy. Convenient location, with many nearby restaurants and attractions.

The people, who have taken over the responsibility of this motel, are very efficient and sociable. Our stay here was very pleasant. They have a swimming pool and hot tub and a very small beach. Our room was very nice and the beds were very comfortable. There are cages with parrots who great you in the morning.. The only problem... More

The couple that managed the place were very unreliable and when we accidentally left an article of clothing behind, the lady completely lied and kept telling us she would Fed Ex (on my account) it and NEVER DID. Absolutely ridiculous way to treat customers!

This is an old, charming, rustic motel with a cottage feel that sits right on the water on the ocean side of Isla Morada. A few things are quite dated, but the Cuban staff keep the place maintained beautifully. It was odd to deal with a manager that speaks so little English, but we managed to communicate with little effort.... More

Loved our night at this place. Cute little room with a great ceiling fan. Beautiful location. We used the pool and jacuzzi. My daughter waded out into the water. Gorgous sunset! Only thing that would have made it better would have been a breakfast included.
