I want to thank Scott and Anna for being such Great Hosts! We went with the the whole family to spend 4th of July Weekend. The rooms were clean, grounds were clean, very close to local bars, grocery stores. Very Relaxing! Not a wild resort, so if you are looking to party and get rowdy this probably isn't your place....

My wife and I stayed 3 nights at the La Jolla Resort in Islamorada in Mid June 2014. the grounds were bright and nicely landscaped, and the room was very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful, inquiring about our interests and making extra effort to provide good recommendations to assist us having a great vacation. This property would... More

Good price, great landscaping and view. Bathroom in O was unvented and not air conditioned, and you could brush or shave while sitting on the toilet. My brother knocked his head once (use your imagination).Very small parking lot with just enough spots for one vehicle per room, our space wasn't marked and would get double parked in causing the manager...

We loved this place. We had an apartment facing the waterfront and absolutely loved having that great view right in front of us. The place was spacious, clean and nicely decorated, spacious bedrooms, lots of kitchen utensils if you want to cook. Service at the reception was very friendly and helpful. It was wonderful to have free paddle boats available... More

The hotel itself is very cute and quaint; however, it's very very outdated and the customer service is non-existent. We constantly had to ask the front desk attendant for fresh towels, soap, etc.. and when we did it was as if we were inconveniencing him and being a pest. The only vending machine on premises was sold out of water... More

We are sorry you did not enjoy your experience at La Jolla Resort. We never overbook the resort and unfortunately parking is limited as we only have one space for every unit. We try to make sure everyone gets their space however sometimes issue do arise. In your case we did have the guest in the space next to you... More

La Jolla is our new favorite place in Islamorada. It's a laid-back, clean, comfortable, old school resort that's right on the water and boasts a friendly, helpful staff. The grounds are beautiful (we debated asking for a cutting of one of the plumeria trees because they're so gorgeous), the pool is clean, and La Jolla offers bikes and kayaks for... More

Ants got in the kitchen during the night and into all of our food. Toilet handle kept falling off. This place is in need of repair. We had stayed here before when it was under different management and it just seems that the place has gone into disrepair.

After researching the complaints raised in this review it has come to light that Deana is a family member of the person who posted the review titled "Looks can be deceiving". Obviously this is another attempt for revenge for being kicked out of our resort by the Sheriff's Department for rude and obnoxious behavior. We invite everyone to come check... More

We love this location - we walked/biked to dinner, right on the water for fishing and swimming, and quiet (during the week anyway, weekends are not). Staff is really friendly and helpful. And the amenities are good - but they really do need to update - a/c ran non-stop and our mattress was lumpy.
