My recommendation to any review reader is to take into account when the reviewer stayed at La Te Da. We stayed from Memorial Day (May 25th) through May 29th. This is the quiet season in Key West. There were only about 4 to 5 other couples staying at the house with us.
We stayed in Room 27, which faces out to the pool on the first floor. It is nicely furnished and the room was clean. If you are one to look at details (like I am), there are things that need upkeep. For example, there was a gap at the top of our room door. And with the mosquitoes all around Key West, you don’t want to give them access to your room. The room could use a paint job.
One of the previous reviews were dead on- there is cat hair ALL OVER the pool lounge chairs. There are two cats that live at the guesthouse and meander about the pool, restaurant and kitchen areas. If you get Room 27, you have two Adirondack chairs on your mini patio so you don’t have to use the lounge chairs. There is also a sundeck at the top of the house, which is clothing optional and has chairs without cat hair.
Bar & Restaurant
The room rate includes daily breakfast, which is served from 8:30am-10:30am. There are three breakfast options, and includes coffee and juice. The options are good starters for the day. We had dinner there one evening, which was very good. Portions aren’t big for the prices, but full of flavor. The bar faces Duval, so it is great for people watching. The bartenders are friendly and the bar atmosphere is fun.
Like other reviewers have said, it is on the quiet end of Duval. If you are a walker (like my husband and I are), you will have no problem getting from one end of Duval to the other.
-Check out the Ernest Hemingway House (best house to tour in Key West).
-Check out Shipwreck Museum (for interesting Key West history).
-Go to Dante’s on Caroline Street- half price raw bar from 4-8pm.
-Go see the sunset at Top Bar (on rooftop) at the Crown Plaza on Duval.
-Make the effort to walk down to the marina- a bunch of untouched restaurants.
