I am sorry this review is so long since our stay. However, it has been on my mind to mention this hotel. I stayed with my daughter and two grandchildren while visiting the Dolphin Research Centre. We were looking for a reasonable place to stay in the Keys while visiting the Research Centre and Gulf View came up. We had two nights and had to pack a lot into that time.
Our hosts were very helpful with finding places to eat that were close by and children friendly. We were close enough to walk to the Dolphin Centre if we didn't have so much to carry. The room itself was clean and comfortable. We had adequate space in the room but the balcony off the walkout extended our space for the children to play. We all enjoyed the pet birds and tortises, the glass bottom kayak, pool and picnic grounds.
The grounds were also well maintained and safe from the road. Noise from the road was kept to a minimum with lots of privacy trees and the beach/boat ramp was well away from the road. Altogether a very enjoyable experience and would stay here again for sure.
