“Lovely stay - staff is excellent!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2010

We were scheduled to stay in the YellowTail Inn - a sister resort next door. Due to some complications, we were upgraded to the Casa Del Sol. The rooms were cool and beds were comfortable. The couch was extremely uncomfortable but you don't go to Florida Keys to lounge in the room watching TV! While it really isn't much of a "resort" the staff was wonderful. I would certainly stay here again.

I read about this place on TripAdvisor, & it was exactly as described. Modern, clean, recently renovated interiors. No frills place. Amazing beach that gradually gets deeper...great for small kids! We saw crabs in the water & a big iguana by the pool. Rented a kayak from the front desk for $25 for the whole day, & while out on it w/ my toddler we saw a nurse shark! Covered parking, elevator in building & convenient to the restaurants & grocery stores on Marathon. Quiet at night...great place for families. Rating it 4 stars only because it isn't a full service resort.

Our family of four adults and two twenty something friends stayed for 5 nights. Being from NE US metro areas, it took a day to adjust to the natural outside setting. We had a two bedroom with a living room sleeper. Ample living space, spacious updated kitchen and great location on small private beach. Fronts highway, which creates some noise and accessibility issues.

Overall, we had a great time! May is quiet season. We met some great neighbors who caught and cooked crabs, as well as hosted us for dinner. Easy access to Key Largo (snorkeling) and Key West (shopping, restaurants and ocean). On ocean side, so no impact by oil problems in Gulf, yet. A bit down the road is Key Colony Beach, another favorite of ours,

Good pricing, great accomodations but a bit of an adjustment to the natural setting for a city kid.

The location is excellent, the place is quiet and clean. It sits on a beach with a nice dock for fishing and is good for some quick snorkeling. The staff is very nice - we'd absolutely stay here again.

I found the Casa del Sol resort to be true to the reviews I'd read online...top of the line kitchens were it's best feature. It seems like the owners ran out of money after they re-did the kitchens. But overall, clean, quiet, well-located. The pool was a disappointment, as it was heated to about 105 degrees...hardly a place to cool off. The resort is ocean front, but the water is extremely shallow...you really can't swim in it. Combined with the fact that the pool was so hot, it really was not feasible to sit at the beach there. On the plus side...the resort is small and quiet...the front desk staff helpful, and the beds very comfortable. I feel like with a little bit of effort and money, it could be a great resort, not just a good resort.

I was looking for an apartment for 4 kids and two adults that wasnt outrageously priced and boy did I find a gem. The pool and beach were superb. The apartments have all been remodeled and are beautiful We had a 3 br unit with three balconies overlooking the ocean! The pool was also right below our room. The service was impeccable. Any problem was cheerfully fixed but there werent any major problems. You pay one price to rent a kayak or paddleboat all day so there is no pressure to get it back at a certain time. I went at peak time and there were only 2 or 3 other people on beach. There are grills and tables by the pool so you can barbecue. You can use any one of their 3 properties. The place is typical of keys properties where the outside of the place is in 50's mode but the rooms are beautiful. There is an abandoned hotel a few properties down but so what? I would highly recommend this gem!!

We had so many weird experiences with this place. The reservation process required about a dozen phone calls and they still got it wrong. We ended up in a much bigger unit than we needed and it was very overpriced for the quality. There was a great view of the beach, but things were broken, worn or dirty. The bedcovers were stained, some of the blinds were missing and the coffeepot was broken. The hotel needs a facelift, especially if they want to attrack travellers in this ecomony. The hotel manager was rude, officious and uncooperative, and not just to us. We heard him being rude to other customers. They need to replace him, because I was always taught that the customer is always right. We won't be returning.

Dear Customer.
We are grateful for all feedback received.
I am sorry to akcnowledge that upgrade we have prepared for your visit -Penthouse Suite - did not meet your expectations. I wish I had a chance to speak to you personally during your visit and correct shortcommings you have pointed out in your review. If I was given that chance perhaps you would also acknowledge that to the contrary to your unfair statements, I too always feel that customer is always right.
