My wife and I stayed at Parrot Key Resort for 3 nights in May. The overall experience was really great. The resort looks like a Caribbean hotel surrounded by palm trees, pools and lizards. It is a sea-front hotel but with no sea / beach access. There is a shuttle which transports you to Smathers beach four times a day for free. As an extra benefit, free chairs are available in the beach if you are a Parrot Key guest (regular cost is $10 each).
The café is nicely located in the pool area. The café has some options for drinking and lunching (not a lot) and particularly my order of shrimp salad with strawberries resulted delicious. There are 4 small pools connected by a pathway, surrounded by tropical vegetation and usually not overcrowded.
The hotel is comfortable, very clean and quite. Suites are comfortable and a small kitchenette is located in a sitting area corner. Although not very well equipped, the kitchenette can be useful when you prefer having an in-room breakfast or brunch. As suites are duplex you should move to the upper suite climbing the stair. Be sure to book a ground suite (suites A) if you have difficulties to climb bags to an upper suite (suites B). In the upstairs suite there are two balconies, one in the sitting room and another one in the bedroom.
The front desk staff, the concierge, the café staff and the shuttle driver have been all very professional and friendly.
There is a Publix supermarket only at 4 minutes walking distance and a Walgreens next to the hotel.
A car is strongly recommended to go to Duval Street. Parking in downtown is available for around $10 the whole stay. Other options can be hiring a motorbike or taking a taxi cab.
Hotel Parking is free but, if you come back late, you probably will have to park in the general parking at the shopping area of Walgreens, not big issue in my opinion.
Great overall experience, exceeding my expectations!
