“Just stunning!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

We finished our three week Florida vacation here and it was a fitting finale!
The location is perfect - just over a block from Duval Street - but once you enter the 'courtyard' all is serene and calm with the World. Nothing is too much trouble and thanks to advice received my wife had one of her best birthdays ever.
The breakfasts were excellent and the room really comfortable. We used the handicapped room and my wife found it excellent. We were a bit warm at night (hence sleep quality rating) but that was down to us not using the excellent air conditioning efficiently.
We will make every effort to return. Thank you Jenny & Tina and staff.

Thank you for the STUNNING REVIEW! It was an honor to be your host during your wife’s birthday. We are pleased to hear our accessible accommodations fit your requirements. I am sure you enjoyed how remote our poolside room was, steps away from our dip pool, lap pool and our hot breakfast that is served daily poolside. We are thrilled to hear you thought it was excellent, we agree! We do have an ideal location; Ambrosia is in a quiet neighborhood, but just a block and half from all of the excitement on Duval. Jenny and Tina say hello and hurry back! Best Regards, Tim and the Ambrosia Family.

My husband & I have been staying @ Ambrosia for several years and we have never had a bad experience. All of the staff are very polite and very helpful, the breakfast in the morning has a very good variety of choice, an afternoon small snack and the pools are even heated! We have recommended several people stay and they have also enjoyed the experience. I would recommend to everyone. They are in a quiet location, but very close to all of the night life Key West has to offer...

Room Tip: Each room gives you a different experience. My favorite is the Jungle room with the VERY LARGE showe...

Awesome! A great review by two avid Key West visitors! It is always a pleasure to greet you time after time. Word of mouth is extremely relevant to our Ambrosia and we are grateful for the recommendations and praises. We are delighted that you enjoyed our poolside breakfast featuring eggs, bacon, sausage and gravy, fruits, breads, bagels, hard boiled eggs, fresh fruit,…..During your most recent visit, you stayed in the Jungle Room, I am sure you enjoyed the proximity of the Jacuzzi and the large outdoor living room. Jenny, Marilyn, Tina, and Lexie want you to hurry back soon! Best Regards, Tim and the Ambrosia Family

We enjoyed everything about our stay here. Helpful staff, good location, beautiful grounds, breakfast, and pet friendly. They have really thought of everything at this place. They even have a small parking lot so don't have to park in the street or pay to park somewhere. Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation Ambrosia. We will be back! :)

We were welcomed to Ambrosia and offered a glass of wine and I was instantly hooked. It has the feel of an upscale Bed & Breakfast, yet the privacy of a fine hotel. The pricing was very reasonable for the area and the breakfast was delicious and filling.

Room Tip: First floor provides easier access to the heated pool.

Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to review our Inn. We are pleased your stay was enjoyable. We are happy you enjoyed a cold beverage at check-in, after a long trip to Key West, you deserve it! Alan and Joyce, during your visit you stayed in one of our first floor well-appointed poolside rooms. I am sure you enjoyed the great view and the French doors opening up to our tropical brick courtyard overlooking the lap pool. Breakfast is indeed delicious and it is prepared fresh daily! Marilyn, Jenny, Lexi and Tina cannot wait to see you on your next trip to Key West. Best Regards, Tim and the Ambrosia Family

We had an awesome time at the Ambrosia Key West! Close to everything, great patio area (we were traveling with 18 people, and we all stayed here, we were able to get together every morning and afternoon), wonderful breakfast. The rooms were up to date, clean and beautifully decorated. Already booked our trip for next year!

Jodi, thank you for your awesome review! You stayed in our two story town home Flemings Veranda. I am sure you enjoyed the views of the streetscape either on your first floor patio or your second floor private balcony. Flemings Veranda is equipped with a large living room, full kitchen and a winding staircase leading to the master bedroom.
Yes, you are right on target! Ambrosia is close to everything! We are steps away from everything that Duval has to offer, but located in a quiet neighborhood, making Duval Street seem likes it’s located in another city. We are glad to hear you enjoyed breakfast, it is wonderful! The best on the island! Featuring eggs, bacon, fruit, assorted breakfast breads and bagels… just to name a few. Jodi, thank you for reserving for your 2013 getaway! Tina, Lexi, Marilyn, and Jenny will welcome you on your next visit. Best Regards, Tim and the Ambrosia Family.

We visited Ambrosia with another couple. Reserved two suites through hotels.com (cheaper than directly). On arrival, we were friendly received at the small reception building and shown to our two suites accross the street. The suites were great and we had "allmost" private hot-tub, which we used several times.

Ambrosia is located only two blocks away from action - Duval street. Block away towards Duval there is a liquer shop - great place to get the sparkling wine for hot-tub evening ;).

If you can, try to get the rooms from this building (accross the street from reception) !

The rooms are clean and well quipped. There is complimentary drinks available at the reception. BUT NO "happy hour", which we missed (our previous accomendation in Key's this was the highlight of the visit).

The breakfast is one of the best I have had in US accommodations. It is served by the pool side. Breakfast starts quite late, 08:30, which for us was little bit problem, as we had diving booked and had to leave promptly.

Room Tip: Try to get room accross the street from reception. There is a hot-tub available (for allmost private...

Wonderful staff made this a perfect Key West getaway spot. Pet Friendly really means Pet Friendly here at Ambrosia.... Great location, very quiet street and the room was adorable with 11 ft. ceilings and wood floors. Bathroom was modern and the microwave, refrigerator and brew station were all a big plus. Thank you, we look forward to returning soon.....
