“very nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

the hotel and grounds where very nice, right on the beach and the beach was probably one of the nicest on key west.all the staff was very helpful.the rooms where very comfortable with private balcony's for each room. the gentlemen that took care of the beach area where beyond helpful. the bar and restaurant staff came right to the beach and took your orders and serve you beach side. the overall experience was extremely enjoyable.

The reach, Key west

Key west is a mesmerizing place in itself. We drove from Miami to key west. The road is beautiful with scenic splendors all through the drive. It takes about 3-4 hours to reach Key west ( Depending on ur halting time enroute).
Pros :
• Huge property
• Neat and clean( even with the enclosed sandy beach)
• Private beach
• Beautiful décor
• Rooms are large….very spacious
• Large bathrooms, extremely spacious and roomy
• Balcony with all rooms
• Lot of eating joints within walk able distance
• Southernmost point of US is at walkable distance ( although I felt even this hotel was at the extreme southern point and I could have swam to Cuba :))

Cons:
Just spent 2 nights here, out of which we were out most of the time so didn’t find anything which made our experience bad.parking is a lilltle messy... needs cleaning and supervision.... no cupboards in rooms to keep ur stuff...

From front desk personnel to valet to bellhop, we were treated like VIPs. The rooms while small,were I immaculate. aWonderful view of lawn, pool and ocean.
The restaurant at Casa marina was wonderful while dining in strong wind. They kept it going with no problem. Food superb. Next door was Louie's back yard, fantastic restaurant. city view Trolley made it easy to see all of old town while hearing some local history. Enjoyed the Butterfly conservatory , now to get all the trinkets home....loved the whole experience.

Room Tip: All were good but second floor front was great.

Service overall was just amazing , especially with the beach staff , Kris and Ricardo were a standout amongst all of them. Beach area is a bit small which is good for us it's more private .. Restaurant service is great too , a little bit pricey for breakfast buffet though . Overall , we really had fun at the resort and would definitely go back !!

This hotel was very nice, the staff was very helpful and the food at the restaurant was very good but there wasn't a large variety to choose from at lunch time. Everyone was very helpful and always accommodating in all we asked of them. I would definitely recommend this property.

Now, understand that although the Waldorf Astoria name is attached to this property, it is on the beach, so you are not going to have marble columns and oriental rugs everywhere. However, for a beachfront property in Key West, this place rocks. It is one of the few that has its own beach, and the beach attendants (especially Ricardo) are there to help you with anything - chairs, umbrellas, towels, drinks, anything. Just a block off the end of Duval Street near the Southernmost Point, it is at the quiet end of Duval Street, yet within walking distance to everything (although bikes and taxis are available if you prefer). The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. I read reviews commenting on the maze-like set up, and it can be confusing initially, but once you know where your room is, it is all good. The pool was nice. The staff was friendly and helpful, especially when making dinner reservations. Water coolers are set out throughout the property (even on the beach) and wet cloths are brought to you to cool you off as you sit on the beach. This is a great place to relax and unwind, and escape from the craziness of Duval Street. This place is definitely in my "I'll stay there again" column.

Property is over-priced and over-rated. Location is terrible. Many of advertised amentities were not available. Moved to older hotel in downtown for much less money, more convience, and better service.

Room Tip: Hotel is Over-priced and Over-rated; staff WAS NOT helpful.
