My husband and I stayed for Christmas this year after trying to pick somewhere close to Miami to spend the holiday before we started having kids. That was our first mistake. Do not stay here if you are a single couple. It is loud, and rambunctious. The walls are paper thin... Kids screaming, doors shutting, toilets flushing.... We could even hear our neighbors peeing!!! The noise started as soon as the sun came up and calling the front desk provided no relief. We had the lanai room by the adult pool, but it made absolutely no difference....it was like being in a daycare.
The food at the pool bars was inedible, we ended up driving to Key West to have some adult fun and have some decent food. It was the highlight of our trip. There is absolutely nothing to do on Duck Key and the resort is much tinier than the photos lead you to believe and there is no activities for adults. There were never any lounge chairs at the pool and the cocktail service was nonexistent.
The servers and staff at the hotel were very nice, that was the one positive. There was live music near the fire pit which also provided some entertainment. The breakfast buffet was ok.
Relaxation, romance, and unwinding will not take place at this resort... Consider Cheeca Lodge or head to Key West for higher quality adult vacationing. We will not be returning.... Even when we have children.
Hope this helps!
