“Great Week”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

My husband and I recently returned form a 1 week vacation here. We stayed during Christmas week. This is a beautiful property and everyone that works here provides excellent customer service. We had a partial ocean view room in building A. The room was very nice and very clean. The view was great, we only had to look to the left to see the ocean. The beach right in front of our building is where we spent most of our time (not the one by the restaurant). This one feels very private and I loved how we had drink and food service from this location. The only negative about this property is the room privacy. We could see right into the rooms in the building across from us and actually saw some people walking around naked. We had to close all of our curtains every time we wanted privacy. You can even see into your neighbors room if you are on the balcony. Even though this was a negative, it would not prevent us from staying here again. We will save up for an ocean view room next time. It is so nice that they don't charge for extras like parking. There is even a small laundry room if you need to wash anything.

Room Tip: Be careful with the partial ocean view rooms, not a lot of privacy. If you do choose these, keep in...

This was our second trip to Southernmost on the Beach. We went for a few days in December to celebrate my husbands birthday, as usual it was a great choice. The staff treats you like royalty, the rooms are clean, food is great and location is ideal. We have stayed at the other end of Duval, Pier House, Ocean Key and Hyatt over the years (since 1986). As long as we have stayed in Key West we have seen so many changes and with that the differences in Hotels and resorts. This place is consistent. We will be back again, only this time with more of our family. They are as excited as we are to enjoy the wonders of Key West. Only thing I would ask, is to get rid of the Nespresso, in the morning I want a cup of real, honest to goodness coffee. A Keurig would have served them better.

Room Tip: Those facing the pool or ocean are great.

We booked a room on the west lawn, and got a ground floor room 520, with an amazing view!
First I would like to thank the staff, especially the red hair lady at the southernmost hotel reception (I think it was Linda) for giving us great rooms in both hotels (we had 2 nights in each).
The room on the west lawn was quite small, especially compared to the beautiful, big room we had at the Southernmost Hotel across the road, but the view made us forget we had a small room.
The fact we could get out of the room and sink into a hamac or listen to the beautiful live music from our room was awesome. For those who worry about the music, please don't! it's not loud at all, it's beautiful acoustic music and last about an hour or two only, just to celebrate sunset time.
MINUS NOTES:
I didn't quite like that the basin/vanity was part of the room, and not the bathroom, it was a weird layout. But again, you're only in your room a few hours during the day, too much to do outside!
Also, we found 2 cockroaches in the room, which freaked me out, being pregnant, but as much as I hate them, it wouldn't prevent me from going back to this paradise.

This place is magical, and I wouldn't choose another hotel group, the Southernmost hotels have the best position in Key West, you can view the sunrise and sunset from here; we loved waking up early to view the sunrise from the pier, picking up our free coffee from the pool beforehand, it was a ritual every morning.
The pool was a great place to relax too.

We can't wait to go back, Key West is a beautiful place and 4 nights were definitely not enough to check it out!
One tip, hire bikes from across the road and wander around the streets of Key West, there is more to Key West than Duvall St and Mallory Square!!!
(see my other reviews)

Room Tip: Room 520 had the best unobstructed view on the ground floor at West Lawn Wing, worth the extra dolla...

We spent 5 nights over the new year at the resort and could not have been more satisfied with the resort and its staff. From Dexter at the front desk, that changed our room to one with magnificent ocean view, after I accidently booked the wrong type of room, to every staff member that made us feel special. The rooms are beautifully appointed and the resort spotlessly clean. Enjoyed being on the quiter side of Duval street but close enough to walk everywhere. We'll definitely be back!

We love this property. It's on the quiet end of Duval Street. So - if you are going for action and fun - stay at the Westin or Hyatt. If you are going for rest and relaxation - this is a great choice. Lovely, well appointed rooms with Old Florida elegance. Simply amazing sleep experience. Nice pool areas but keep in mind that this is the Keys. You will not find an expansive beach here. What you will find are beautiful views, tranquil waters, and amazing food. It's a lovely place but rates in the winter were in the $400's. So be prepared to pay up!

Room Tip: Ask for one facing out to one of the pools or to the ocean.

the Southernmost on the Beach hotel is one of the few hotels in Key West which are located direct at the sea and have their own beach.
The hotel is located really close to the Duval street. It is the quiet part of the Duval Street.
The facilities are really nice. The rooms are spacious (especially the bath room) in a very good state. Unfortunately coffee and bath gel were not refilled during our stay.
There are various area to have a sunbath, at the pool, at the sea. At the pool, you can enjoy live music each afternoon. But it can be quite loud. It is not a problem to find another quiet place. Overall the hotel is really quiet (and it was fully booked as we stayed).
Overall the service is really good. We really had a feeling of exclusivity.
We experienced once that somebody was drunk and loud. After two warnings, the police was called.
We had breakfast several time at the beach coffee. Prices are similar to other locations in the area - not really cheap. But the beach coffee has the best view.
Well-equipped gym. One of the trimming machines was out of order and therefore quite dangerous.
We had only one issue wiht our coffee maker, which was not working any longer. We waited for housekeeping in the evening. Nobody showed up.
