“Nice, Quiet but No Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

I'm an owner of this resort and it is now beginning to see the effects of time. The resort is at the end of the island away from Duval Street so is nice and quiet to get away from the "action". The cab ride or shuttle is inexpensive and quick. The desk staff is very friendly and helps with all your needs. On the downside there is no restaurant so you have to go next door to the Marriott to eat or walk a way to a closer restaurant. There is not gift shop or store to buy snacks etc. Just no food. The pool is very dated. It's very shallow and a wasted zero edge that's just very old fashioned. Again, next door, the Marriott has a much better pool.

Room Tip: Quiet Hotel but No Food or Restaurant

My wife and I took our two adult daughters here for a week and really enjoyed ourselves. Important - read the reviews to understand what you are getting into. There is no restaurant and no workout facility, but we knew that by simply reading carefully. Some reviewers have misplaced expectations. We found it to be very clean, the staff very helpful, and the pool area outstanding for relaxing.

No, it's not on the beach, but keep in mind this is not Miami - the beaches are very limited in Key West and created from imported sand. No, this is not in the heart of the action, but that was't what we wanted. If you want to walk to Duval Street and the bars, choose another place. We had a rental car and we got around just fine.

Thanks to the reviews here, we asked for and got top floor at the end, close to the dock. Perfect view, almost no noise, great breezes. Our room was quite large and the girls' room was adequate. We spent a ton of time on our screened in porch. For the money, and for Key West, where not much is large without a large price, it worked out very well.

We are very experienced travelers, and have stayed in many Hyatt properties. We would absolutely stay here again,

Room Tip: F33 or F34 is the room if you want peace and quiet...so long as you don't mind the extra steps t...

After reading some of the reviews, I went with low expectations but we were pleasantly surprised. Upon entering the room - it smelled fresh and looked clean which it was. We were on the top floor (3rd) and our unit provided us with a nice view of the pool and the bay side. Loved the screened in deck with rocking chair, love seat, coffee table and end table as well as a glass top table with 4 wicker chairs with cushions. We ate breakfast out there almost everyday. The dvd in the living room was blu-ray which was a nice surprise as we did rent movies. The Hyatt staff was accommodating when we arrived and acknowledged our questions that we had later on. The fact that this Hyatt was at the northern end of the island worked well for us as we arranged to have a rental bike (Island Safari Rentals-with free delivery) delivered to us at the hotel (my husband brought his) and everyday we had a wonderful ride along North Roosevelt Blvd into the heart of Key West - about 4 miles and didn't have to worry about driving our car and more importantly parking it. It didn't bother us when we were around but you did hear the noise from the pool area - but what is wrong with people enjoying themselves. And maybe being on the top floor eliminated some of the noise but our floor was carpeted. One other thing of note- the shower stall in the main bedroom was not in the confines of a typical bathroom it was in the dressing/sink area. The location may not be as convenient for some but it was fine for us.

A 15 minute ride to downtown. Nice pool and beach area, but beware, there were a few little kids,and they scooped a "mess" out of the pool. Now I know why I don't go into the pools at these resorts. The room we had was a little worn, and the shower went from scalding to luke warm, so I just chose to use the second shower. The kitchen faucet also dripped, so I assume they do their own plumbing. From many of the screened porches you can see the ocean, the 3rd floor had a great view in A building. Everyone working here is very friendly.

We loved this resort so much we actually bought a unit for week 2 of every year here. Unfortunately we can't go this year and hate to see it not used. If anyone is looking for a great 2 bedroom 2 bath full kitchen with living room and screened in porch overlooking the water pls let me know. We love having the quiet to come back to after a fun filled day or evening on Duval. Great for couples or familes! Contact me if intersted for 2013 2nd week of January. Great zero entry pool as well.

Room Tip: All rooms are great but prefer 2nd floor rooms such as where we bought.

First and most obvious once you get here, the Beach House has no beach. Second and more disturbing, the noise between units was unexpected and is totally unacceptable for a timeshare. Why on earth would they put a tile floor above a bedroom? The scrape of chairs across the floor is like fingernails across a blackboard when you are trying to sleep, or trying to keep your kids asleep. I was glad not to be in a unit directly over a little swamp, which was sometimes stinky. And although this small resort is indeed waterfront, that view is obstructed by vegetation on lower, inner floors. Things they cannot help: constant very loud noise from the airport and Navy jets, isolation in a construction zone that is already about as far from downtown Key West as you can get. Pros: the staff was friendly and helpful, the unit was nicely designed and clean, and the resort and grounds are very pretty. The pool was great for small kids. Note that there is no restaurant on the premisis. Overall we enjoyed our stay but would not chose this resort on a return visit.

Room Tip: Rooms along the north side have a waterway view from the spare bedroom. Rooms on the west ends have...

Place is nice but misleading. No beach, just sandy area for kids to okay next to pool. Also I thought there was a restaurant based on website, but it is actually at the other Hyatt downtown. The units are nice, pool nice and heated. Need to travel to the action, we rented a car. Nice for young family. Seems well maintained.
