This property, mid-way down the Keys, is worthy of consideration. As the other reviewers highlighted, the property managers, really go the extra mile to ensure that you are welcome. Meeting Yeny is like meeting a friend that you have not seen in a while. We stayed in room #13, and it was very much as I expected from reading the... More

This is what my husband and I wanted for a first time Islamorada visit. Yeny is above sweetness and works very hard to please their guests. Alex works sunrise to sunset cleaning and fixing up property, both deserve A+ for effort in updating the rooms. We loved the "old school vibe" memories from my high school days renting beach houses.... More

After a very long day's travel we arrived at the Sands of Islamorada to a very pleasant experience thanks to Yeny,the hotel manager.This facility has character and the rooms are spotless. It's nice to have a kitchenette in case you want a light meal although Yeny gave us great advise on restaurant options. The bed was very comfortable and everything... More

We stayed for one night; this is a family run place and we have a great stay. It's nothing fancy, but the rooms are decent size and clean. For the price it was perfect for what we were looking for. However, if you are staying longer, I think it would also be great. The room had a full size refrigerator,... More

I have personally toured this resort a few yrs ago while "re-conning" the area". Fell in love with it and the rooms. Last week I called three times and left a message to call me because I wanted to stay here on a Last minute trip. This is the fourth time this has happened to me with no call back.... More

We stayed for 3 nigts recently, we our little dog and had a great experience. It was great to find a place that we could take our dog. This is the type of motel you would expect to find in the Keys. Yeny and Alex were so friendly, they really seemed to enjoy visiting with their guest. The rooms were... More

Stayed in unit #11 for 4 nights in March 2014. Service was excellent and Yeny and Alex were very welcoming. Can't wait to come back next winter. Housekeeping was great and the unit was clean as a whistle.

We loved it here. Our motel type room was spotlessly clean, with every amenity including a massive fridge freezer! The bed was huge, with a new, very comfortable, firm, quality mattress and the linens were very good quality. The room was not enormous but certainly big enough for us. The shower was great and the towels good quality. It was... More
