The fact that we return to this lovely place, for the third time, I think says it all! This lovely hacienda really gets you into vacation mood and the owners dedication and love for their place really makes it a hotel that can´t compare to any other we have stayed in. The rooms are individual decorated by Cristie and Marc... More

This was our 2nd visit here. Pleasant, quiet setting in a very convenient location. Feels more like staying at someone's house rather than a cookie cutter resort. Beach is across the street. All the bars and restaurants we needed were walking distance. If you want relaxation, this is the place. If you want to be loud and party, go somewhere... More

Yes! We would like our guests to consider us their personal "Florida Beach House". Just stock up at the grocery store, unpack and hit the beach! Sincerely, Cristie More

I was so comfortable here, such a wonderful hacienda atmosphere! Every room has a kitchen & everything is wonderfully & caringly decorated. Close to the beach & downtown where there is a great dock, restaurants, music shops plus Publix & Wallgreens. Very low key which I loved. Bring what you need, including water. Thank you all, particularly Gary. I will... More

A vacation at the Blue Seas Courtyard is so low-key that many Key West residents stay with us during the summer to get away from it all! Sincerely, Cristie More

This was our first vacation at this hotel and it wont be our last. Gary was on duty when we checked in. He was very helpful to us. Gary is a very busy man each day but always made time to chat with us and the other guests. I like having a small kitchen in my room while on vacation... More

Hotel is a newly renovated older facility. Great location. Management trying very hard to please. Distributed bottled water at the pool. Gave you a welcome cocktail. Lovely pool with shaded areas available. Also provided chairs for use at the beach directly across the street.

BlueSeasCourtyard, Owner at Blue Seas Courtyard, responded to this review

Ooops! We want to be completely honest - we don't actually offer a Welcome Cocktail but we do leave nice cold bottled water in the fridge for arriving guests. We never want any new guest to be disappointed they chose to stay with us. That is why all of our guest reviews are completely authentic. We do not offer deals... More

The location is close to anything you desire. The rooms are cozy, immaculate and well maintained. All a nice surprise from a random choice on computer. We have been coming to this area since the 1977; started out at the 2 Sheratons for several years; the beachboys were the highlight- lovely, just not cozy.We started moving around about 10 years...

First off - the place is beautiful, and very clean. On our 5 night stay the noise was so bad from the construction behind the hotel you could not really rest at the pool. It was not the owners fault - but it is what it is. Maybe next time we can ask for the construction special and we can... More

We are truly sorry that our neighbor was working on a construction project during your vacation with us. Normally you can hear a pin drop around here day and night and thankfully work should be completed very soon. We sincerely appreciate your other positive comments about the 'hacienda' in spite of our noisy neighbor! Sincerely, Cristie More

I had the most amazing stay at this beautiful hotel. I need to plan more in advance to make sure there is a room for me every time I visit. The room, the staff and the location was all I could ask for. It was quiet and a very relaxing setting. I come down often to visit my sons and... More

Yes, we like to promote that we offer a unique and popular guest convenience...a COURTESY ROOM for guests arriving early or leaving late. Guests can store their luggage, use a restroom, change clothes after the beach or pool, or even sit and watch TV if it's raining outside! Sincerely, Cristie More

We were totally delighted with our stay. The rooms and grounds are immaculate. Being in the restaurant business for 30 years I can see the constant TLC that the hotel has been given by Cristie and Marc. They have definitely paid attention to every minute detail.

Looking at the property and reading the reviews on TA, I was excited of the prospect of staying there. However If you are used to having a reception/lobby area staffed with helpful people this place may not be for you. Upon arriving at check-in time I walked up to the reception area to find a piece of paper with my... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our inn and we apologize that your check-in experience was lacking for you.
