“Perfect Venue for an Intimate, Tropical Wedding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

I recently got married at Lookout Lodge, and it was a perfect experience. Lookout Lodge was just the right size for our group of about 50 people. Of course, not everyone could stay there because it is a little place, but that is one of the reasons we loved it. Everyone at the location was there for us, so we didn't have to worry about strangers participating in our special day. The other main reason we picked this location is because we were allowed to basically do whatever we wanted. There weren't a lot of restrictions put on us about food and music and time and people like a lot of the larger resorts tend to impose. We are laid-back people, so we just wanted a laid-back wedding, and Lookout Lodge really was the perfect place for this. Everything went better than we even planned because of the staff at Lookout, too. First of all, their event planner/wedding coordinator, Laurie, is amazing at what she does. We didn't need a lot of her help with the planning because we had so much help from others, but she offered it all along the way. And when we got there, she went above and beyond anything we had asked of her to make sure everything looked beautiful and "just right". She helped us set up and clean up and really took care of everything, so that we did not have to worry about anything. Plus, all of our vendors (baker, DJ, steel drummer, caterer) were recommended by her, and we were impressed with all of them and the services provided. Furthermore, Greg was a great bartender for us. He fit right in with our casual, island theme. Before and after the wedding, when he was working at the front desk, he did everything he could to ensure that all our guests were comfortable in their rooms and had everything they needed. In addition, Hector was an amazing help to us. He made sure the place was spotless before the wedding started, and he helped in any way he could. Lastly, Don oversaw everything, so that we could all have the best experience possible. I would HIGHLY recommend this little cozy resort for any special event. But even if you don't have anything special to celebrate, it is also just a great place to stay for a relaxing vacation. All the rooms had plenty of amenities and were very clean. Overall, it was a perfect weekend for us!

Recently had my wedding at Lookout Lodge Resort and it was amazing. More than my new wife and I could have ever expected. The accomidation were great. Rooms were so comfortable it felt as if my home was relocated in paradise. The exceptional staff, Laurie, Don, Greg, and Hector made the biggest impression. Hard working, friendly and all around great folks, they went above and beyond to make sure that we had a good time, and all our needs were meet. My wife and I have stayed all over the Keys and send as much time there as we can, and because of our wedding experience, Lookout Lodge Resort will be added to our places to stay. All ready making plans to return to them for our anniversary. Thanks again to Lookout and their staff for a great time.

We were traveling as a couple with two single friends and the two-bedroom suite was perfect for the four of us. One room had a queen bed and the other had two double beds. The beds were not new, however they had very nice foam mattress covers that made them very comfy. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed to cook in the room as well as at the convenient grills down by the water. The room was clean and there were several extras, like oil and salt scrub in the shower and soap and sponge in the kitchen for dishes. On top of all this, the location was perfect with beautiful sunsets and great snorkeling right off the beach area. To top the entire stay off, the staff was friendly and helpful! We will stay here again as soon as we get a chance!

Room Tip: If you are going to spend time in your room get one with a water view, if not don't pay the extr...

Seven of us went to Islamorada for a five day fishing trip. Lookout Lodge was a perfect home base. We had two rooms, each with a full kitchen and living room and two bedrooms. Everyone had their own bed and it cost us each about $60/night. Rooms are clean. There are also gas grills where we cooked our catch. Nice little beach and great sunsets. Plus, Marker 88 restaurant and bar is right next door. Overall, nothing fancy, but exactly what we needed and a great value.

Room Tip: Room 206 gives you a water view.

Spent a few nights with three friends at Lookout Lodge in the past week or so. Not a real fancy place, but friendly, very comfortable and homey (just right). The rooms were very clean and well stocked with everything we needed to cook and prepare picnic lunches. The grounds were fantastic - quiet, private and beautiful sunsets. Coffee in the early morning sitting on the beach was "the best". We enjoyed using the gas grills for evening meals after days of swimming, snorkeling, and buying "fresh" at the fish markets. I would recommend Lookout Lodge to anyone and would definitely return.

My boyfriend and I really liked the Lookout Lodge. It's a great location in Islamorada and had a nice cozy feel to it. We booked the mini suite and were upgraded to a 2 bedroom. It was very roomy and clean and had a lot of the comforts of home. The grounds were beautiful. I just wish we could have enjoyed a few sunsets but the weather was not agreeing with us that weekend. I would definately go back though. Unless you're Miss Priss and would freak out at the sight of a few ants or something (this is FL on the water) you will love this place. I personally don't need 5 star accommodations. I prefer the smaller, quaint and friendly places like this. Oh and I called the morning of check out and asked if we could check out a little late (we got sooooo sea sick the night before at Robbie's Marina night fishing) and she was so great about it. Thanks again, you have no idea how much we needed a couple more hours before the long drive home!!!

Room Tip: I booked online and got an email a few hours later notifying me I was upgraded. I was grateful for t...

Just left the Lookout Lodge resort located at Mile marker 88 in Florida keys bayside and let me tell you, I was very impressed. For a smaller hotel resort, this place has got to be the best value for the atomsphere in the area. Booked online based on reviews, and when we got there it lived up to the billing! Great rooms, very well appointed furnishings including the very comfortable bed, private beach area with one awesome sunset view. The owner came out at sunset with comp wine and cheese for us too! We stayed in a waterfront suite on second floor with a big screened porch overlooking the water for 3 nights and spent $200+ a night. Full immenities including small kitchen with full size refrig made it nice during the day to snack, etc. Has a small deep water boat basin that we kept our 21ft boat in, and was nice and protected dockage. Very quiet and private. Located next door is a 5-Star resturant with one awesome "tiki bar" right on waters edge. Outside dining under the stars was fantastic. I read another review posted here on trip advisor from someone calling themself "AG1619", and he/she must of gotten their hotels mixed up when they posted because I've got to tell you, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE LOOKOUT LODGE RESORT in Islamorada if you are staying in this region. This place is quality, quiet, private, and has a great resturant with outside seating/bar right on the water. No pool, but has swimming and snorkeling area right off their private sandy beach. Have been staying here since 2008, and is our #1 choice in area by far.

Room Tip: Try and stay as close to the water as you can. The main building is right off main highway and 1st r...
