This was our 1st trip to the FL Keys and it won't be our last! After reading a fantastic Travel and Leisure article, I decided to look into Kona Kai Resort given the article's wonderful review and introduction to the "North Keys". Trip Advisor reviews of Kona Kai were equally positive, so we headed to Key Largo for my 50th...

Kona Kai Resort is near the center of an island called Key Largo; and a million miles away from anything associated with our "normal" daily lives. A walk around the property is instantly a stroll through a whimsical garden among trees, and plants you're not at all used to. And, if you care to, you can soon make friends with...

I don't normally write reviews but for this place I will! My husband and I stayed in the beautiful pineapple suite. We were welcomed by Jennifer, a very kind and helpful lady who went out of her way to accommodate us.

We actually found this place by accident because we wanted to see their gallery and botanical garden. When we got there we saw these beautiful cottage style villas and fell in love with the place. They have so much to offer, salt water pool, jacuzzi, beach with hammocks, kayaks, BBQ pits, nice patio areas and beautiful views. The staff were...

If your looking for some quiet time whether as a couple or friends/family..this is the place to really relax and unwind. I love the fact they have age restrictions. Not many places in key largo offer this type of serenity. I needed a quiet place to relax and not be in a highly paced/congested hotel scene. I was truly amazed...

Our second time. It won't be our last. It's the little things they do. Just a beautiful setting and relaxing atmosphere that makes it special. Beautiful botanical gardens. The staff is caring and attentive. Rooms are lovely.
