Islamorada is one of our favorite areas of the Keys and we love to try the different small hotels and inns. It was our first time to Coral Bay Resort. Sort of off the beaten path as it'is south of the main area of Islamorada but it's quintessential Keys. The hotel has 17 rooms right on Florida Bay and sits on a large property. It's relaxing to walk the grounds and there are many places to sit and ponder the mysteries of life (or not). There's a dock which can hold a couple boats and a nice lagoon with a sandy beach where kids can safely swim and the parents comfortably watch. The rooms are good size and the size of the flat screen TV will please any TV lover. The rooms in general are just a bit tired but quite comfortable and spotless. We had the kitchenette which had a microwave, full size fridge and stove. Very functional. The staff was very friendly. We had gone for the Thanksgiving weekend to get away from the craziness and it worked. Very relaxing and a great place to hang out or use as a base to explore the surrounding areas. We'll definitely go back.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Sandy beach, heated pool, free dockage and ramp. Efficiencies, 1 Bedroom and 2 Bedroom Apartments. Unspoiled and unhurried, the Coral Bay Resort preserves an informality and grace that other keys can only distantly recall. We invite you to join us and our many other long-time guests this year for a step back into a simpler, more relaxed time. ... more less
