We were price shopping last minute for a room at the end of February and this looked like one of the best values. It looks like a condo complex that rents out some units like a hotel. The building we were in has two elevators on opposite ends of the building. Our room was by one elevator, that was out... More

Booked through Travelocity, with taxes paid over $200 per night, for condo. But it was very shabby, air conditioners were rusty, falling apart. There was rust on the refrigerator, rug didn't look very clean. Looks very old without any updating. Towel bars barely attached to wall. Sure didn't want to walk around in bare feet. The WIFI was so intermittent... More

Booked a single king bed condo through Travelocity, when we arrived at the "Resort" desk clerk indicated that the booking was for a two queen room. Room was "tired" and in need of updating. Overall was not even worth the reduced price, I have stayed in budget hoels which were better.

Friendly staff - Rachel was very sweet and funny in our dealings over the phone. It was easy to get our key "after hours" since we arrived late. The room/condo was much better than I was expecting, especially after reading some of the other review - it was clean and well organized. We got a 4th floor room and it... More

Room was dirty, blankets had holes in them, office didn't open until 9:00am to checkout, lobby was much better than any other area at the hotel, toilet seat was worn out and did not fit the bowl, trash behind the bed and table and two weeks later I still do not have an invoice showing why the room including tax...

We stayed here for two nights. Though the location is great - close to Sombrero beach - and the property has potential, I would never stay here again. It started off ok. The staff were friendly and efficient in person (though over the phone they were hard to get ahold of). Then we saw our condo. The door was rusty... More

We were surprised when we arrived. The condo we paid for was beautiful. We questioned if we had the right place. We will go back. Wonderful service. It was clean, well stocked. We looked out onto the Harbor. Close to Key West. Wonderful restaurants.

We spent two nights at the resort, and found it okay but nothing special. The rooms were clean apart from the kitchen where there were some grime on the edge of the fridge. It did feel in need of renovation though, the tv was old, one electrical outlet felt a bit loose from the wall and internet was really slow.... More

I was traveling with a group bicycling from Key Largo to Key West, so we were only here for 1 night. Had hoped the bar at the pool would be open for the adults to go there in the evenings, but was told it was only open Friday/Saturday nights. There were sand fleas or no-see-ums at the pool that made... More
