“Just another great stay in paradise.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

We've stayed here before, but not in a few years. It is still as wonderful as always. The Honeymoon Suite (we were not on our honeymoon) has a very nice hot tub that is a great way to end a day doing Key West. Another thing we liked was the expanded breakfast offerings - not just a continental breakfast, but it also had bacon, scrambled eaggs, biscuits and cream gravy. What a nice surprise. Otherwise, it is just a great place to stay.

We are delighted that you enjoyed “another great stay in paradise”. As our guest you stayed at our Historic Ambrosia House in our Honeymoon Suite. This second floor all white suite features a king 4 poster bed with netting and a beautifully appointed master bathroom with a two person Jacuzzi. I am sure you enjoyed our convenient old town location; steps away from the grocery store, Duval Street, Mallory Square, Historic Seaport, and many other must see attractions. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed our hot breakfast buffet, featuring eggs, bacon, sausage and biscuits, granola, hard boiled eggs, cereals, waffles, artisan breads, bagels, juices, fresh fruit and don’t forget the coffee! Jenny, Tina, Marilyn, and Lexi can’t wait to greet you on your return trip to Paradise. Best Regards, Tim and the Ambrosia Family

My husband and I showed up to key west without hotel reservation and we were in luck when Ambrosia had a couple rooms available. It's a couple blocks away from Duval and super cute! We stayed in the pool room which is (obviously) right across the pool and it was perfect. We also visited the Jungle room which was phenomenal. The Jungle room has the hot tub right next to it and is very private. Breakfast was set up buffet style in a little gazebo by the pool and was great. Staff was super friendly and accommodating to help us get parking spots.

Greetings! Thank you for taking time to review Ambrosia Key West. Every once in awhile we have a gap in our reservations, and we were pleased to accommodate you! As our guest you stayed in our bright and airy pool room featuring all tile floors and French doors. I am sure you enjoyed the view of our lush tropical courtyard featuring our lap pool and dip pool. Thank you for your praises regarding our hot breakfast buffet that is prepared fresh daily. Please be sure to contact our office directly to book the Jungle Room on your next trip to the Conch Republic. Until next time… Best Regards Tim and the Ambrosia Family

We needed a hotel/resort that was pet friendly as we have a new Yorkie Puppy. We were surprised at how many Key West locations are pet friendly but chose Ambrosia based on our review of amenities and other reviews from Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed as Ambrosia far exceeded our expectations. We chose the Jungle Room across the street from the main building and it was quiet and secluded yet we were less than 2 blocks from the heart of Duval Street. The Jungle Room was a large room with an extra large shower and bath and adjacent to the room was a large spa/hot tub pool. Everything in the room was first class and included a microwave, refrigerator and heating/air conditioning. In the main area, just across the street, there is a main pool plus a smaller one. Complimentary breakfast and coffee is served from a pagoda next to the pool and includes several egg dishes with bacon and potatoes plus danish, fruit, juices, bagels and toast - a nice way to start each day. The staff is superb and gave us great advice on restaurants that are pet friendly and we enjoyed everything they recommended. The staff was particularly nice to our Yorkie Puppy and made all of us feel comfortable and welcome. We often visit Key West and this will our accommodation of choice in the future

Room Tip: We suggest the Jungle Room although the rooms overlooking the pool are great locations but are not p...

Bob and Brenda thank you for sharing your Ambrosia Experience! The entire family at Ambrosia Key West consists of pet lovers! We enjoyed meeting your yorkie puppy ‘Aja’ and we are looking forward to featuring her as our June Pet of the Month! Thank you for sending her bio to my attention, we took some nice photos of Aja on the front porch. We are delighted to hear we have exceeded your expectations. As our guest you stayed in our Jungle Room. This suite features all Dade county pine floors, walls, and vaulted ceilings. I am sure you enjoyed the Jungle Room’s large outdoor living room and being steps away from the secluded Jacuzzi. Tina and the gang appreciate your praises and we look forward to greeting you on your next trip to the conch republic. P.S. Don’t forget Aja! Best Regards Tim and the Ambrosia Family

We were fortunate enough to get the "alligator" room. The Huge veranda with sofa, comfortable chairs, & dining area looked out over a peaceful courtyard with a lap pool (a great way to greet the morning with their complimentary breakfast). The room was very comfortable with the same view. The hotel staff was gracious and quick to make sure our stay was perfect. Key West offered fresh, tasty seafood, beautiful sunsets, and colorful characters. Duvall street was like a small version of Bourbon Street. At the end of the day it was great to escape back to the serenity of Ambrosia House.

Thanks for the great review! As our guest you stayed in our Alligator Suite, it's truly charming, with a large veranda overlooking our lap pool and the rest of our lush tropical courtyard. I am sure you enjoyed how close we are to all of the fantastic seafood restaurants on the historic seaport including Alonzo’s, A&B Lobster House, Half Shell Raw Bar, just to name a few. Again, we thank you for choosing Ambrosia Key West and we look forward to greeting you on your next trip to paradise! Best Regards, Tim and the Ambrosia Family

My wife and I stayed in the Treetop Two room, which overlooked the pool and had a huge balcony with a swinging bench. Sitting out there was blissful. By the way this porch has a ceiling fan and two chairs plus an patio sofa. The staff was very nice and accommodating. Everything we wanted to do, they gave us suggestions and even set it up for us. You can ask them anything and everything about the island and they will help you. I highly recommend staying here, as my wife and I will be back.

We took the Key West Express from Ft Myers and stayed 2 nights at the Ambrosia House. It was our 6th or 7th stay there. Since we were traveling with another couple to celebrate the guy's 60th birthdays we chose Katies Cottage because it offered two bedrooms each with a private bath plus a full well equipped kitchen. AND, the pool was literally right outside the door. We LOVE the Ambrosia House because it is very quaint, extremely clean, has a nice breakfast, and is 2-1/2 blocks to the heart of Duvall. You can walk everywhere!

The staff is readily available and very helpful. We've always met nice people there too . . . at breakfast, or during a mid-afternoon dip in the pool to cool down before heading out for the evening. We enjoy meeting and chatting with new folks.

I originally found the Ambrosia House several years ago when we were searching for a place we could stay with our two Golden Retrievers. The Ambrosia House is now our go-to place for Key West whether we are traveling with our doggies or not!

Room Tip: Having stayed in both, we prefer the rooms on the "office-side" of the complex as opposed...

Hello Julie and Anthony! We are humbled that you continue to choose Ambrosia Key West as your home away from home!! Taking the ferry from Fort Meyers is a great means of transportation to KW. No need for a vehicle when you are in town. As our guest you stayed in Katie’s Kottage. This two bedroom/two bathroom cottage is also equipped with a full kitchen and living room featuring a queen sleeper sofa. I am sure you enjoyed wasting the day away on the hammock that is right outside the first floor bedroom. Tina, Lexi, Jenny, and Marilyn want you to hurry back soon! Best Regards, Tim and the Ambrosia Family

Delightful stay at Ambrosia. Staff was very helpful with great recommendations for restaurants and sights. Each room has a different "theme". Our room was the Cuban Room in the annex across the street. Nice and I can't say anything was wrong with the room, but when we return--and we will return--we will try to make certain we stay on the main property.

The location is perfect...a couple of blocks to Duvall St and a couple of blocks to the west end harbor. Mallory Square is a 5-6 minute walk.
