I will start by saying that I booked this trip via Google Earth. Meaning, I was looking for a sandy beach with a decent hotel. Looked it up, and then called, never looked at a single review. I was so very fortunate to talk to Ellen. she is one of the most friendly people you will ever meet and after our 3 days there, she (and the staff) treated us like family.
This trip was the 13th wedding anniversary for my wife and I. We had booked a Ocean Front, beach level suite (the suite is the way to go!) that we thought would be awesome but after talking to Ellen asked if we could move up to the 3rd floor. She hooked us up. The view was fantastic, the room was fantastic.
The each morning we spent watching the waves in the provided lounge chairs (new, padded, and had an accompanying umbrella) on their great sandy beach. Took dips in the ocean as well as the pool. There were toys for the kids, "water noodles" to float in the pool or ocean with, a Kayak rental, a bar next door that delivered your drinks to you down on the sand, and to top it off... Jimmy Buffet Radio playing on the outdoor sound system all day, every day. It was one of the most relaxing vacations I have ever had!
The area has some really good places to eat. Some more expensive than others, but great food. All just a short drive from the hotel.
This hotel has clearly been newly remodeled, top to bottom, sparing NO EXPENSE. Great amenities and THE BEST HOST IN THE KEYS. Ellen just gets it. She made suggestions for dinner, took the time to get to know us, and shared her experiences to make ours better. She has by far the best Customer Service around and made our trip that much more enjoyable.
We will definitely be back to this great place! Thank you Ellen and the family at Glunz! Just and AWESOME 3 days!
