Great location to get a taste of Florida Keys, a place with many out door activities and best of all fresh seafood restaurants near by. This is definitely afamily resort, you can easily spend the whole day swimming in their private beach, participate in their on-site beach activities and jump in the pool (2). Their bar offer great food selections. I live in Miami and love to escape with the family here. Never disappointed, never get tired... It's always a place I look forward to :)

My husband and I were a little put off by the look of the outside of our room. We both thought it looked like a detention center. The inside was somewhat better, although the bathroom area was pretty dated. There was major rust around the metal overflow in the tub, and some black mildew around the caulking. Not exactly top notch. I also am not a big fan of having the sink and vanity outside of the bathroom, which in this case was in the kitchenette. But....other than that, the room was large, lots of storage space, and looked right out to the pool area. There is a screened in porch with a table and some plastic chairs. That could be made so much more comfortable with some lounge chairs. The pool area and beach are really beautiful. Don't expect to do any real swimming as the water is rocky. You can snorkle though. The tiki bar is very nice, although expensive. Probably won't stay here again, but it's nice enough.

I called at least a dozen places for our Scout Troop to stay and was rebuffed by most of them. Islander Resort was more than accommodating for our group. They were honored to have Scouts stay with them and worked hard to meet our budget needs. Our group sized changed (even up to the last week before arrival) and everyone I spoke with over the course of a year putting this together were pleasant, professional, and helpful. Once we got there...what a dream. We had all spent at least two days on the road and felt like we had landed in paradise. I can't rave on this resort enough. I would go back in a heartbeat. The rooms were fantastic, the resort was peaceful, the staff very pleasant, the "continental" breakfast fed both my teenage boys every morning, and I could go on. If you're looking for a little slice of serenity, stay here. It's worth every penny plus some.

Room Tip: All the rooms our group stayed in were the same. It's designed so every room is convenient.

WARNING TO ALL TOURISTS!!!! This location does not serve alcohol to anyone without a U.S. I.D.. We had our German Passports and an international driver's license. The server's, bartender, and management staff all declined our I.D.'s as proof of age (we were 27-29). We were told that no one is allowed to be served alcohol without a U.S. I.D. This is a ridiculous policy and pretty sure it's illegal to refuse alcohol to international customers.
Well will never return to this location nor will we have any of our friends stay here again. We also told all of the local establishments we visited about our experience so they don't recommend their estblishment anymore to tourists.

3rd visit to the Islander and as always the room is clean and well kept. The pools and beach areas are also taken care of very well. The bar can be a little pricey but no more than you would expect at a hotel - and the bloody marys are excellent. Continental breakfast includes juice, coffee, waffles, french toast, pastries and fruit. Excellent place for families...

Room Tip: Unless you plan on spending a lot of time in your room's patio opt for a lanai facing room. Acce...

What makes this place great is the location on the beach. The palm trees feel like a tropical paradise. The rooms are pretty dated. We only stayed one night. The breakfast is the morning is continental, and a nice bonus. We sat outside and ate which was perfect. The staff is super friendly and nice. There is a small fridge and kitchenette in the rooms, which for an extended stay would be helpful for those wanting to fix some meals there. The rooms need updating, but bed was comfortable. The lanai was very nice and all the rooms face the ocean. The pool were beautiful.
Side note: Lorelei's for lunch or dinner and conch fritters.
and Bob's Bunz for breakfast

Room Tip: All rooms seemed good and faced the ocean.
