“Beautiful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

It's a beautiful, all green and quite resort. Had been with my wife and she loved the way the rooms are decorated. The sea facing suites are very nice as they have nice chairs to rest. There are 3 swimming pools.
Girls at reception were very friendly and helpful. They also suggested us things we can do and how we can book the water sports. Ample of parking.

Loved this place, stayed in a two bedroomed garden apartment. It was very quiet other than one incident with some late night revellers returning about 3 O'clock. The road works are a nuisance, you have to do a circle of the island to get back into the resort. We decided to leave the car and use taxis,$16 each way for 4 adults to get into town. The little kitchen area is OK, some may feel a bit pit off by having no sink, but the cleaning staff daily replenish your cutlery and plastic plates, and coffee cups. One thing I really miss, is not having a safe. Why no safe? had to carry passports around with me, and cash and all credit cards, just a little safe would be great. Difference between the sand fronted and garden apartments - nothing really, a little bit quieter the ones looking over the sand and water, but this is an expensive holiday/resort, unless you are loaded opt for the garden apartment.

Room Tip: All are nice, but on a budget, choose a garden apartment.

We had a wonderful stay at Parrot Key. The rooms are comfortable and roomy. The furniture is colorful and has a beachy feel. There are four pools which gives a peaceful pool experience. Breakfast is served by one of the pools and is simple, but good. Parrot Key is removed from the hustle and bustle of Duvall Street which we liked for our family vacation. It was nice to enjoy the restaurants, shopping, and Sunset Celebration and then go back to our peaceful hotel. I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Key West.

We are return visitors to Parrot Key Resort. It is outside the hustle and bustle of Old Town Key West, and is its own secluded enclave near the edge of New Town. The grounds are lush and well tended, the pools are sparkling and inviting, and the bar and limited service restaurant are friendly and efficient. We and our traveling family members were in a two-bedroom suite which was comfortable and well-furnished. Staff was friendly and there if we needed them, which wasn't often. There are many different options for vacation housing in Key West, from large resort hotels to bed and breakfasts. Parrot Key Resort is more along the lines of a boutique. It is reasonably proximate to all that Key West offers, but provides a relaxing away-from-it-all ambience for the days you'd like to spend in quiet enjoyment around the pool or on the balcony. We will return!

The check-in process was horrible, but I think this was due to the person who checked us in. She was unresponsive to us for several minutes and then CHIDED us for not telling her we were there. Another woman was helping a different couple and the 'chider' was wandering behind the counter and did not have a badge or any means of identification. How were we to know she was ready and able to check us in?

She could not find our reservation. She was slouching on the counter and hunt/pecking her way through the computer to find our reservation. Her attitude, questions, and tone of voice prompted my travel partner to comment to her that we were not stupid, did indeed have a reservation and, in fact, had already paid for a good portion of it months earlier. Once she did find it she indicated I had a one bedroom unit, when in fact I clearly had reserved a two-bed unit. Again, the attitude from her was that I was wrong. ugh

The second receptionist was now done with her other customers but did nothing to assist our receptionist. I produced the reservation document and she was able to find the reservation. She then discarded my document and was SHOCKED that I wanted it back. I have checked into many, many hotels and have never felt so humiliated about showing up where I was supposted to show up.

Now we have the keys and get to the room. Unload the car trunkful of stuff into the downstairs lobby. None of the four keys work in the door to the unit. My friend took off for the lobby to rectify. He asked for a manager and was told there were none on property. Strange, no?, for a complex of this size?

Friend returns with a manager who also cannot open the door. A maintenance man appears and he cannot open the door. I request a new unit b/c I am not comfortable with this at all.

At this point, it's just laughable. Honestly, I am not complaining about the door b/c these things happen (and they worked VERY QUICKLY to resolve it), but piled on top of the receptionist......

A bellman comes and loads all our stuff on a cart and we are moved to a new unit. A wonderful unit. An interior end unit. With loads of windows and light.

After this, all is well. The pools are all different temps and so secluded and isolated from each other that you feel like a pool could be yours alone. The paths, beach, plantings, sculptures are wonderful.

The unit was large and comfortable and had everything we could have wanted. Thoughtful attention to colors, decor, cleaning. Except for maybe a tiny sink in the "kitchen area" but that was not a deal breaker.

The manager who assisted us, as well as a manager of the reception area (we were very clear about the problem with the receptionist), both came to our unit (separately) to make sure everything was okay, which we appreciated.

Truly, without that check-in experience, my review would have been one word "fantastic".

Room Tip: ask for a unit that doesn't front parking lot and Walgreens, or an end unit that has lots of win...

Hotel in general is OK. It has better prices than most other hotels in town.
Rooms are simple, but nice.
It is a long walk into town - so you may consider to take a taxi.
Negative is tjat there are no safe deposit boxes in the room! Only available on front desk.
Breakfast and lunch can be taken in the pool garden. The pool garden is very nice. The food and coffee are not nice at all!
Coffee is like dark water and meals are cooked without any spices...

Parrot Key is great romantic get away. 4 pools surrounded by lush greenery made each a secluded spot. Relaxation is the outcome. Hotel and unit were well maintained. Staff were friendly, showed pride in their work and were glad to help with directions / locations of attractions. Scooter and bicycle rental (not included in hotel charge) are on site. I would highly recommend this hotel for couples looking for time together and creating memories.

Photo taken at Parrot Key (think coconut trees gently swaying in the breeze with loungers, crystal clear pool and tropical foliage in the shot) is one of our screen savers. ...Ok, you get the picture. You want to be there.

My only request: Don't spoil the place or tell too many people about Parrot Key. After all it's "our place."
