    My husband and I stayed at the Tropical Cottages in cottage 8 for 5 nights and were very pleased! The room was clean and comfortable and close to many attractions and restaurants. It was decorated very nicely and we observed many of the other cottages getting painted and updated, showing clearly that the management is working to provide nice accommodations.... More

    The worst ever. When I first arrived and saw how bad it was and asked if there was any way out of the reservation and I was told no they would not do a refund. The room had a very bad build up of dust and spiderwebs. A few large spider egg sacks in the corners. The shower was gross,... More

    My husband & I stayed in room 11 for a week, we really enjoyed our room & the outside bathroom.

    Cute, cozy individual cottages. BUT, active pharaoh ants in bathroom on counter and towels which were on shelf above counter. Could see outside around entry door, allowing outside critters/bugs in when lights on inside. TV was 13"...had to sit on edge of bed to comfortably "see" the TV. No ice on property, advised to go to McDonald's and buy a... More

    The staff is very nice and helpful. Our room was clean and unique. We loved it. The grounds are well taken care of and beautiful. I can't imagine a better place to stay in the Keys. The room did have a very small TV. So if you are looking for a room to watch TV in, this might not be... More

    It has been awhile, but I see the place has not changed. If you want to get out of the rain so you don't get wet this is the place maybe. Get what you pay for maybe. This place is run down. I will never stay here again. Many electrical problems in these cabins. I feel this is an accident... More

    Cottage was cute and what we expected for the price. We arrived after the office closed.....our door was to be left unlocked with the keys inside. The door was locked (Hubby opened it with his pocket knife). When we got into bed about midnight, there was hair and sand in the sheets! We slept on top of the top sheet!... More

    My friend and I stayed in one of the cabins for two nights on 4/19-4/21/15. We were offered a complimentary upgrade to a bigger cabin. That was a wonderful surprise. The room was tastefully decorated and clean. Our only complaint was that house keeping did not come to our room the first night. I'm not sure if that was an... More
