“Ok, but not worth the price.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

We stayed at the Islander Resort this past weekend. We upgraded to a 1 Bedroom Oceanview Suite. "suite" is a term used lightly. The room was very tiny. Once the pull out bed was out it touched the kitchenette table. The pull out bed made the worst squeaking noises everytime you rolled over. The bedroom was tiny as well. Just a bed, dresser and nightstand. The only upside to the room was a nice sized bathroom. The price we paid was not worth it. The pool is nice, yet very small. The bathing capicity is 26 if that gives you a clue. The waitress at the pool was extremely unpleasant and rude. She yelled at people for bringing their own cup of ice to the pool, yet she had her "buddies" who must have tipped her well and they were allowed to bring in their own beverages. I gave up after asking for a drink menu twice and walked to the bar to get our drinks. It was centrally located which is the plus for this hotel. Food was ok, nothing special.

We stayed a night at the Islander on our way to Key West and wish we had stayed there the whole time! We are a family of native Floridians and this was like going back in time - but keeping all the modern amentities. The rooms are basic but they all have screened porches which are nice if you have four-legged family members. (keep in mind there is a fee of $75.00 for pets). The pools, jaccuzzi and tiki bar are where the real fun is. There are also water sports available for rent. All the rooms have grills outside and many have hammocks outside too. The food and drinks at the tiki bar are a little pricey but very good! The staff couldn't be nicer or more accomodating! We plan to go back soon with a whole gang to enjoy the place for a longer stay! Do yourself a favor and stay here and make a day trip to Key West rather than staying there.

Room Tip: Ask for a room near the pools and ocean and one that has a hammock outside. Pet friendly rooms are o...

This was my second time staying here and it was great! Love this place! It''s kept so nice and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Having the water sports right there was very convenient! David was great, make sure to ask for him. He took us on a Eco tour and snorkeling and was so accommodating to what we needed. Great place to stay. I really don't understand how people can give this place a negative review.

The hotel definitely lacked that resort feel (not necessarily a bad thing) and the beds were way to small, however a great place to get away for some fun on and in the water. The Islander Water Sports rental place was right on the property, very convenient! This is one of the big reasons why I would definitely recommend staying here. We hit a week of horrible weather and Dennis and David from the rental place were extremely helpful and went out of their to accommodate us in between rain storms. The jet skiing was awesome and David was a great tour guide. Whether you stay at the resort or not I would definitely recommend renting from this business!!

Booked this hotel paying a total of almost $250 per night (prepaid). Room was for 3 people. When we got there they gave us a room with only one king bed. Called the receptionist to complaint and she said that I paid for a room on the run of the house, that it was all she could give me. I asked for a roll away bed and she said they did not have one and I could leave if I wanted to. AGAIN, MY RESERVATION WAS FOR 3 PEOPLE!!!
I did not believe, it was my 10th anniversary and my husband and I were celebrating and we took our son with us. I left, couldn't book anything else. My son was crying all the way back home, we live in Miami. Horrible staff, very unprofessional. Will report them to BBB. They ruined my celebration.

We are so sorry your vacation didn't turn out as expected. Unfortunately, your room was booked through a third party and the reservation only showed 2 adults. There was no mention of a request for two beds. During the dates of your stay we were in a sold out situation and simply did not have a room with two beds to move you to or any available roll aways. I will definitely speak to the front desk as they certainly could have explained the situation to you better and more professionally. If you would like to give us any additional information, please call our General Manager, Robin at 305-664-2031

I took my family of 4 to this resort. They have a great location,right on the Atlantic. They have 2 pools there, both are very warm. The rooms were nice, the only problem was the beds were to small. My 18 and 12 year old had a tough time of both fitting on it. They have a good breakfast, lots of options. I would stay here again.
