Glunz Hotel is centrally located for traveling the Keys. This was our first trip to the Keys and we wanted to visit each of them. It was not too far to travel to Key West for the day or Key Largo were we had the best seafood at Key Largo Fisheries Backyard Cafe. Our favorite thing to do was go for a bicycle ride around Marathon Key on the bikes provided by Glunz. The seafood was also excellent at Sunset Grille & Raw Bar which was quite an experience. First restaurant I was ever at that had a swimming pool. The staff was very accommodating to our needs. Our coffee maker was not working properly so they brought us a new one right away. Borrowing the bicycles was easy too. The room was clean and well stocked.

It is very simple hotel is not all bad but it is very expensive especially that charge of $ 25.00 per person who charge extra to provide towels and beach chairs, my suggestion is that you should include breakfast in the price and remove that extra charge

Ok Folks, Let me tell you, THIS hotel is totally and completely OUTSTANDING!!! The Staff: EXTREMELY friendly and helpful with ANYTHING they can!!! The LOCATION: Second to NONE in the Keys!!! Their own private beach that is cleaned daily, complete with plenty of lounge chairs!!! I have heard that most of the beaches in the keys have mangroves or rocks on them, NOT at Glunz!! VIEW from OCEAN FRONT ROOMS: FANTASTIC!!! POOLS: 2 pools, while on the small side they are super nice and clean, it didn't bother us at all that they are smallish!! ROOMS: We were in #113 Ocean LEVEL suite for 2 of our nights. WOW!!!! Roomy inside with a full kitchen stocked with everything like a condo is!!! Full size fridge!!! Eat at bar!! And the ocean is literally your back yard! You step off the patio straight onto beach!!! I mean it is just "in your face" close!!!! Now, for the next 3 nights we stayed in one of their 8 3 BR, 3 bathroom Villas. It was Villa #8. OMG!!!!!! It is like 2300 sq ft in those things!!!! And they are absolutely STUNNING!!!!! One of the 2 pools are right at the Villas back doors and the pool is between you and the beach and looks awesome!!!! Now, the Villas being designed the way they are with THREE FLOORS, so there are a lot of steps inside. One flight of about 15 steps going to the first floor which does have one of the bedrooms and bathrooms. Then a flight of about 15 steps going up to 2 of the bedrooms and their own bathrooms. There is also a short flight of about 5 steps going down into the living room. So, if you can't do stairs, you really need to stay in the Ocean LEVEL suite. Even if you CAN do stairs they get pretty hard to go up if you are up and down all the time and you are not a Spring Chicken like us!!! OR have some heavy luggage to motivate with! PRICING: Everything down in the Keys is, lets say, NOT the cheapest of places to visit. However with that said, I will have to go with The Glunz Resort being a good value for the money due to all that I have already talked about. Also, they have Bicycles and Kayaks available that are already INCLUDED in the price. I will most DEFINITELY stay here again when we visit the Keys!!! I got REALLY lucky finding the Glunz Hotel and Resort!!!

My husband and I stayed here for the first time. We have been to the Keys dozens of times but this was our first time staying in Key Colony. Let me start by saying how wonderful the entire staff is here. We were lucky enough to meet the owners and you can tell they are very passionate about making your stay the best it can be. The amenities were all very well kept and the DJ at the pool on Saturday was a nice surprise. The restaurant next door had great food and entertainment, not to mention the indoor shuffle board table. Also you can walk next door to get a great coffee and breakfast sandwich. We will highly recommend this to our friends and family. And would definitely stay here again.
