Stunning setting in the keys - overall this was a great stay. We had an ocean front room with a private patio - it was the perfect place to relax. There are many options like kayaking, paddle boarding right there. The "adults only pool" was wonderful - great place to chill and have lunch. There is also a spa and fitness center there. Spa facilities were lovely - we had average massages... Some of the rooms are more updated then others. We started out in a room that was a little dated but moved to one that had a more recent Reno and was very nice.
We ate one dinner at the property and were very disappointed by the quality of food for the price. We had a shellfish tower and everything was ok but seemed like it had been sitting out for a while (oysters were dry and pre shucked...shrimp weren't fresh) and we shared an entree and our bill was over $300. We eat out a lot and don't mind spending money on good food but we definitely found better meals off site. It was a little strange that every time we ordered drinks (the exact same thing) we were charged different prices.
