“Luxury Break”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

We concluded our honeymoon in the La Mer and Dewy House staying for 5 nights. It did not disappoint!

Our room was amazing with a partial seaview, the bathroom was amazing with a big claw tub and shower.

The beauty of this place is it combine a charming b&b with the benefits of a large resort. There are lots of spots to relax by the pool or sea. Pool bar areas are great and we enjoyed lunch and dinner in the beach café.

The breakfast in the dewy house is also a lovely way to start your day.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review of our Bed and Breakfast. We are honored you chose to stay with us for your honeymoon (congratulations again!) and enjoyed all that our extensive property has to offer. I feel we are very fortunate to be located at the quieter end of Duval Street because our guests can relax and enjoy the tranquil surroundings after having their fun downtown. Thank you again for taking the time to write your review and we look forward to celebrating your next special occasion with you.

This was our first trip to Key West and we were not disappointed. We are so happy we chose to stay at the La Mer Hotel and Dewey House. After initially choosing a garden view room in the Dewey House we then upgraded to an ocean front room (404) in La Mer. The view was terrific! The room is right on the beach and so we were a bit concerned about noise and privacy. However, those fears dissipated right away. The room was lovely and quiet, and we enjoyed the proximity to the beach, and to the breakfast and tea area. We loved the ease of breakfast each morning (the waffles were excellent!), and took advantage of afternoon tea as well. Sam and Randall were friendly and gracious hosts and made our stay very relaxing. We chose to stay here for the B&B feel but still having access to 3 pools and bars throughout the larger Southernmost properties. The location of the hotel is quiet, but within easy walking distance of bars and restaurants. All of the staff were friendly and accommodating and the resort property is well done with plenty of pool chairs, umbrellas, hammocks, and activities. We will return!

Room Tip: 404 is an ocean view room on the first floor right on the beach. If you want a little more privacy...

For us, this hotel was an ideal location. Enough off the beaten track but only a block away from Duval Street. We stayed at the Dewey House which was quite nice. Went across the street to get Cuban coffee every morning which I now miss having. Access to the beach was ideal. Don't expect to see the sunrise because you are facing south.. Sunrise will be on your left! :-) Highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: Second floor at the Dewey House

Once again, stayed at the La Mer and enjoyed every moment of it. We had the advantages and conveniences of the Southermost Hotel while enjoying the privacy and peacefulness of a B&B. Breakfast is fresh, delicious and plentiful. Staff is terrific. The Southernmost Cafe has a terrific server named Ron (Opppps - or was it Don?) And Sam Messier is so welcoming and makes us feel like family. She is a great asset to this property.

Room Tip: Second floor with a balcony is a very good choice.

The Dewey House has all the comforts of a B&B and all the amenities of a resort. The room/bathroom were beautiful, the AC was cold and the staff more than helpful. It is in walking distance of Duvall.

Short but wonderful experience at La Mer! Room and property were perfect - clean, accommodating, professional, comfortable, close to all Duval St has to offer! The room at La Mer was beautiful and comfortable. As pert of our anniversary I ordered the Wine & Cheese presentation through the Concierge - beyond expectation!!!

Room Tip: La Mer or Dewey "B 7 B's" are incredible - highly recommend!!!

For the price of a partial ocean view room at Southernmost Hotel in Key West, we got an oceanfront room at its sister property La Mer Hotel, but still had access to all the amenities at the resort - three pools, fitness center, concierge, beach and restaurants. Our room had a lovely patio with two lounge chairs where we could sit when we had had enough sun but still wanted to be "at the beach". The room was nicely appointed, had a comfortable bed and the complimentary breakfast was delightful. Every morning we read the New York Times while enjoying homemade quiche, fresh fruit, pastries and Mimosas! One morning there was even lox and bagels. The staff was helpful and friendly. Very accommodating when we asked for a late check out. Couldn't have asked for more.
