A college friend and I recently stayed at the hotel for a long weekend and found it to be the perfect property for what we were looking for in a resort. It was beautifully maintained, the staff was uniformly friendly and helpful and the amenities were plentiful. Two big pools, bike rental on the property, hammocks on the beach... there was a lot of great stuff to take advantage of while staying here. I particularly enjoyed the hotel location, with it's beach access and distance from the tourist hustle and bustle of Mallory Square. With Key West being such a bike friendly town, any where we wanted to go was a 10 minute bike trip away. Literally, the only thing I can criticize are:
1) that the bathrooms only had showers and not tubs
2) to swim in the ocean you need to walk out on a pier past some rocks
3) when I asked the front desk to mail an envelope, they didn't cover the cost of postage
Otherwise, I would definitely considering returning the next time I'm in Key West.
