Having both lived in SOBE for a while and stayed at a good number of the hotels on the beach, I am very happy to have found this hidden gem there.
Although we only stayed for one night at the end of our vacation before returning home from Key West, we cannot wait to go back and stay a few more days at The Anglers .
Our experience started while we were reviewing their website, then booking our reservation online (which they personally followed up to confirm our reservation) to the personalized service while checking in. I have not been to a hotel where service has been so great.
We were then led to our room which was off the pool with a private little gated terrace.The room was appointed very well and roomy. There was a little sitting area, large comfortable king sized bed and , small desk with LCD TV over it. Then there was nice wet bar, and a small closet where we were able to store our items without cluttering the room.
They even had speakers for the tv/stereo in the ceiling (little details which I noticed).
Getting back to the service, housekeeping came by in the late afternoon to fill our ice bucket, provide turn down service, and deliver a personalized note with the next days weather forecast.
Oh yeah although it is not located either on the beach or bay (few blocks in either direction), I did not miss either. The resort was peaceful and tranquil , of which it is difficult to find at any other hotel/resort in SOBE. They even provide you with a beach bag and towels for the beach.
We did not have a chance to have drinks or eat at the hotel due to our limited time there, but when we did check in we were hungry and their restaurant was not open, but the front desk cheerfully brought us menus to a few local places to order from.
