I loved this place. I wouldn't stay anywhere else. The pool area was very pretty and the view from our second floor room was pretty. Only four blocks from Duval so perfect location. Our room was very nice and clean. Parking was not easy to find, but we finally did manage. It's not as easy and you may be told. We parked several blocks away. Breakfast was fine as well. This place is quiet, relaxing, and very pretty, all three things I was looking for. If looking for a big party, maybe stay elsewhere. IF they want a little constructive advice, the bar tender on a Monday that they only make frozen drinks on the weekend and I couldn't have a pina colada. (in Key West?) Also, time for a few new lounge chair covers. Some getting pretty old. Other than that, perfect place to stay.

Hello Dan, Thank you so much for taking the time to review us online and for the great review. Im so sorry about the mix up with the pina colada. I think our bartender didnt convey the situation correctly and I will make sure speak to him on how to explain things in the future lol Our Island Oasis drink blender was down for about 2 weeks and we were awaiting the new blades to be delivered which we expected to arrive by the weekend. Usually we serve frozen drinks all day. So sorry for this and for any confusion. Glad to know you enjoyed Key West overall though and we look forward to seeing you again in the future. Have a great day Dan and thank you again. Kind Regards, Anthony J. General Manager

I stay at the Equator Resort every time I’m in Key West. I have tried other places, all good, but the Equator is my favorite. It’s a wonderful atmosphere, makes me feel very comfortable and the staff is great. You won’t be disappointed with the accommodations or the property itself. Central located in Old Town and walking distance to everything.

We enjoyed our quiet midweek stay very much. In our poolside room, there are lots of space in to organize stuff. Everything is clean and tidy except the shower area with no-shower curtain -- kinda hard to keep the rest of the floor from getting wet. The pools and jacuzzi works wonders. We loved the happy hour mingling with everyone too. The staff are super friendly and helpful. If only they take care to do something about the mosquitoes, it would be mucch better. I ended with dozens of bites.

Hello Blue Whirl. We are glad to know you enjoyed your stay. Im sorry about the shower situation. Most of our showers are the glass blocked tiles that don't utilize shower curtains except our ADA accessible rooms, however if you let me know which room you stayed in it would help so we can see if there is anything we can do in regards to the water situation for a future guest or future stay. It may or may not be a simple fix on our end. Feel free to shoot me an email me (manager@equatorresort.com) with the room number so I can play Sherlock Homes and investigate :) As for the mosquitoes I am sorry you got bitten up. We have the property sprayed regularly for mosquitoes and the city sprays and inspects for standing water where they can flourish as well. I didn't realize that there was a rise in them. So i will have the pest control increase their spraying/smoking for the buggers lol. Thank you for letting us know and glad you were able to enjoy the rest of the trip. Have a great day and we hope to see you soon! Kind Regards, Anthony J. General Manager

It's the second time we've been to the Equator and, as in the first time, everything was perfect. What I like most in the Equator is that you can choose to be relaxing or in the middle of the action. For the second time we stayed on room 22, that is not facing the pool and has a wonderful bathtub that fits two! Whenever we were in the mood for socializing all we needed to do is take a few steps and go to one of the pools and, if we prefered our privacy, we had a huge bathtub for ourselves. The staff, once again, did everything they could to make our stay memorable and the guy at the reception (I believe Eddy was his name) was so kind and attentive that made me remember why I wanted to go back to Equator right from the moment of the check in.

Hello there. Awesome, its so great to know that not only that you enjoyed your stay, but its your second visit. I will make sure and let Eddie know your kind words about him. I love room 22. I stayed there many moons ago myself. lol Thank you again and we look forward to your return one day. Just an FYI if you ever want a ground floor with less steps...room 12 just below room 22 is identical and also has the bathtub. Thank you again and have a great day! Kind Regards, Anthony J.

This was our eighth trip to Key West and the sixth time we have stayed at the Equator Resort. We have found the entire staff to be friendly and pleasant during our stays. Often able to suggest a dining option or tourist attraction. Property is maintained well and very clean. We have noticed how upgrades have occurred over the years, which makes for a very good overall desire to return. Thanks to all at the Equator.
