There isn't a bad room at this resort. The rooms are very spacious and have balconies on both sides. Very lush grounds make even the garden view rooms very attractive. The units resemble high end ,three level narrow time shares...so they offer you the flexibility to have a studio, two bed & bath or three bath & bedroom offerings.
Pros: It's beautiful, reasonably quite, clean, spacious, Walgreen's and other shopping necessities are within a short walk. They have a private beach that is on the other side of the island where they also offer water sports for a fee. There is a shuttle for that. Free Wi-Fi.
Cons, Squeaky Beds that are lumpy...we were able to sleep ok on them, but they mattresses really do not do justice to the resort. The gym is too small and needs more AC, The four pools are protected from the wind but they lack a children's type pool . There is no safe to store valuables in the room, It's not within walking distance to the old part of Key West. Parking in Old Key West can be challenging so it would be wonderful if the town could start a rotating shuttle service similar to what they have in Tahoe.It would help with the parking situation. There is parking at the resort with overflow at the Walgreen's which we have had to used whenever we came back after nine PM.
All in all, we are very pleased with the resort which we had to book at the last minute and we would recommend it to friends. But if you would like to experience the old Key West and not have to worry about parking a car...I would try to get to one of the Historic B&B's.
PS, there is not much to do outside of Key West except for seeing the Turtle Hospital (be sure to go well before 4PM which is when they have the last tour) and the Key Deer about 25 miles East...best time is near dusk and at well kept lawns...they love eating the green grass. Other than that, there are no interesting galleries or pints of interest along Highway 1 which we were hoping to enjoy. Stay in Key West...that is where all of the action is.
