This is a great spot. Wonderful private beach on the bay. Plenty of beach chairs, tiki tables for guests. Great spot to swim. Sandy bottom. Crystal clear water. Boat launch and dock on premises. Sunsets were fabulous. Cabins are clean, well decorated. I stayed in Sand Dollar. Great price for staying in cabin on beach. You can walk next door and grab a drink at their outside bar. Friendly staff. I’ll be back !

Unassuming from the Overseas Highway, the eyes open upon driving into Sunset Cove Beach Resort to find large zoo and prehistoric animal statues lining the road that leads to the beach. The rooms/cabins/cottages vary in size and appearance from the outside. We had one of the Divers Den rooms near the resort entrance. The beds were very comfortable; the layout interesting with the bathroom split into two separate rooms - one with toilet, sink & cabinet storage, the other with shower, sink, & under sink storage. Room had nice TV, refrigerator & microwave. The only issues came from noise from main road traffic as well as noise from adjacent Divers Den room. WiFi was excellent.

Continental breakfast available outside in morning consisting of coffee & packaged pastries. Numerous restaurants in immediate area for all meals. We had discount coupon for dinners presented to us upon check in and found discount coupon brochures available near office area which had useful discounts for establishments from Zoo Miami all the way to Key West businesses.

We enjoyed a full afternoon on resort’s small but private beach. Uber available and quick in area should you not care to drive to and from bars, restaurants & activities not within walking distance. A large CVS store right across street should you need supplies.

I found it refreshing to walk to the beach in the morning to find many other guests sitting outside their cabins wishing me a friendly “good morning”.

We found this place on Book It and were influenced by it’s location, price and proximity to the beach and restaurants etc. We stayed in the Bayview room which was recently upgraded. We were very pleasantly surprised with this room! Fridge with a freezer, new bathroom and shower, flat screen TV, good Wifi and a very comfortable bed. Plus it was about 50 steps to the beach. The sunset over the gulf is beautiful. There is a beachfront restaurant and bar with live entertainment right next door if you don’t feel like driving.

After searching many days for a place in the keys for a short trip for my birthday’s celebration, this place came up in all the applications that book hotels. I read all the reviews and I thought it would be a nice place to stay with my family, so I booked it, and I received the confirmation email. The afternoon before the check in I received a call from Gisela from the hotel saying that it was a mistake and they didn’t have any availability for that weekend, and they had to cancel it. What a hassle!! When I already had taken the days off from work, rented a car, and bought tickets for a boat trip.. She told me she can help me find other ones available so I started searching too, and she gave me 2 options that didn’t meet my needs, one was way over my budget, and the other one was a horrible place to take my family. All placss around were booked, and the only ones available for 3 people were almost double in price. I know things happens..but I feel this people don’t really care, and they are not accountable of their own mistakes. The fact that they were looking for another place for me, it was because they had to send a report to the booking company that they have tried to accommodate me somewhere else, even the lady Gisela told me. This is the first time in my life that I am writing a review, because I was so dissapointed that I had to cancel my trip and I had already paid for the car rental and the tours. I work in Customer Service for over 15 years, and this is not the way you do business in United States. If you make a mistake, fix it, even if you have to pay for the difference to acommodate my family in another place. This people didn’t show any emphaty, and I really feel they don’t care, that behind every booking there is a family, we are not numbers.. Beware! I hope it doesn’t happen to you...I would recommend that you book in another place, where they care about their customers.

Martha, We are so sorry that there was a double booking that affected your reservation. It is a complete anomaly and we feel terrible it happened! While you were booking online through Expedia.com someone was booking in person at our front desk. That person's reservation was confirmed in the same time frame that you booked. We had no recourse as the resort was full. We have less than 30 total accommodations. Since the reservations were for one group that had booked the entire resort for a wedding reception we made the difficult choice to honor the reservation for the party that made the in-person reservation as part of the group. This is not a decision we ever hope to face. And yes, we did indeed need to send a report to Expedia. We are distressed this happened to you! This is peak season in Key Largo and our front desk manager, Gisela, did work to find you alternate accommodations during the busiest month of the year, and there were a few to be found. In fact she provided 3 choices close by that were within the closest price range to our property. We care deeply about our guests and it is disheartening to know you did not find our assistance under these circumstances to be helpful. Please call on me directly if I may assist you further, PJ Cummings, General Manager and partner

They are quite serious about the pandemic here. Even the pens at reception are sanitised. The reception itself is outdoors and staff wear masks, and the girl who checked us in was super friendly.
Our room was super clean. It was pretty basic but then again I wasn’t expecting the Four Seasons. Separate toilet and shower suites - both clean and they are pretty generous with towels. TV was large (approx 55 inch I think) and had plenty of cable channels. Bed was very comfortable. Also WiFi was very strong and there was an impressive device on the bedside table with power and usb sockets for charging phones etc.
The highlight of the resort was the coast view. We enjoyed a lovely sunset. They even allowed me to smoke my Huqqa pipe on the beach. One section of the beachfront is socially distanced well. As for the bar area, the staff wore masks and the bar tender is super efficient and quite an impressive character too. He can throw an empty soda can in the bin from a distance without even looking, while pouring a drink with his other hand. Well I was impressed anyway. Nonetheless at the time of sunset the bar wasn’t socially distanced at all. And customers were walking freely around without masks...but it’s Florida...a state where covidiot behaviour is normal so you cannot really blame the hotel for the covidiot mentality of the clients.
The hotel is also conveniently located a few minutes walk from a CVS, Walgreens, Starbucks and Domino’s.
Overall a pleasant stay. I recommend it for an overnight stop in Key Largo.

On a recent trip to the Florida Keys I made a reservation for a chain hotel but this hotel was not on the bay side of the Keys. After doing some more research I decided we want to stay on bay side, most of the accommodations on bay side were "privately" owned and had a fantastic view of the bay and sunset. The Sunset Cove offered a camper trailer by the bay and was a great place to stay. The accommodations were clean and when we had a problem it was taken care of immediately. The owners take great pride in the resort and the grounds which were very well kept. Next door was a bar and grill that provided live music every night, not loud obnoxious music but soft relaxing guitar music which we could sit and listen to every evening as we watched the sun set, which are simply gorgeous in the Keys. My wife did not want to leave the place to go anywhere else, everything you need is right there, the bay to swim, fishing, kayaks, paddle boards, lounge chairs, tiki huts, hammocks. Good restaurants were nearby. We would definitely stay here again.

Thank you for the cool and detailed review! That RV, "Seaside," is one of our most popular accommodations : ) We appreciate the feedback about the grounds. The resort owners take great pride in keeping the gardens lush, the foliage at its peak and the beach raked tidy. Thanks for choosing Sunset Cove.

My husband and I just returned from a visit with my 22 yr old son. Trip to the Keys was a grad. gift.
The property is very well groomed and cared for. We had cottage 6 and it was nicely updated.
When we come as a couple we usually stay a bit more south but wanted a family friendly resort and this is it !
All the employees were very friendly as was the other guests I encountered in the morning getting complimentary coffee and pastry. We were there while the pandemic was ramping up , so we would like to visit again when there is a lot less stress in the world. Regardless, it was a very pleasant atmosphere !

We were so delighted and felt lucky to find this place.
It’s tucked away in a great location . Easy in & out . It’s VERY clean. We were in the cottage right on the beach that had a great view . Everyone there felt like family . The little bar next door that was just steps away had a band every night and a great happy hour . The room had ALL the accommodations & the bed was very comfortable . We found a coffee pot in our room and made our own in the mornings although they offered coffee , danish’s and juice at the tiki in front of the office every morning .
We will definitely return ... loved this place !!!

Sunset Cove was an unexpected pleasant surprise for us. We booked last minute and were just glad to have a place to stay. We had cottage 7 which is right on the “beach”. Although not. Your tradition wide Sandy beach packed with people we were quite happy with the small private beach and swimming area. Being on the bay side there are not really waves so it was super easy to launch paddle boards or Kayaks, even for beginners. Kayaks and paddle boards are free for guests to use. We also saw dolphins swimming by and other guests reporting seeing Manatee while kayaking. There is a bar and restaurant literally next door so if you enjoy soothing acoustic live music 4-10 pm you can hear it on the beach as an extra bonus no extra charge. Our room was a small suite with a decent kitchenette that we used to make breakfast rather than going out. It was clean and the bed was comfy with everything you need. The neighboring guests were all super friendly and fun to get to know. This is an older property that has been updated to modern standards but it is “quirky” compared to a new hotel. I would definitely go back.

Decided last minute to visit Key Largo and since we have a Labrador retriever we looked for a dog friendly place.
Sunset Cove had one cottage left so we booked for 2 nights.
It was a wonderful time, the staff is super friendly and accommodating.
Sunsets on the beach were beautiful and our dog was allowed everywhere on the resort on leash.
We ended up staying an extra night we loved it so much. Really has that old Florida beach vibe!
