There are few clothing optional places in Florida where you can go and be yourself and have fun. Relax and get rid of all your tensions. The staff led by Anthony are all great. They all have unique personalities and are always ready to offer help or make suggestions. What a wonderful group of guys. Go once and you will...

Anthony and the team run a lovely, chilled guest house in Key West. Had a lovely time by the pools and hot tubs, meeting people from all over. The rooms are comfortable and were serviced well daily. The hotel is a short walk from the main drag in Key West, so plenty of options for drinking and eating. And the...

After reading some of the reviews, i was dubious. I will say that for the most part, the staff was very nice when found. The room on the other hand was less than adequate for what we paid. The furniture paint was chipped, and the mattress wasn't close to comfortable. The television kept losing network. $400 a night, I expected...

Hello Shanemichael, First let me thank you for taking the time to let us know your thoughts and experience during your visit. I would also like to apologize for not meeting your expectations. Without guests either telling our staff or submitting reviews we would not be able to continue to grow and develop the Resort. While we do not have...

After looking forward to an anniversary trip to Key West, the Equator Resort was underwhelming. The entire staff at this resort needs to take customer service training, unless the owner really doesn't care. From check-in until we checked out, the entire staff was very disengaged with the guests. Staff would just walk by and ignore guests, never asking if we...

We stayed at the Equator for six days in early September. The hotel is kept very clean and it was obvious that they keep on top of maintaining the place. Facilities are really good - the two pools are both small but this is the old town of Key West, so that's to be expected. Breakfast is included and is...

We have been staying at the Equator for 13 years. There have been ups and downs. This place is totally up right now. We just had a really great stay. Recent improvements include a waterfall in one pool, a new bar setup, breakfast and happy hour improvements, and the current staff is great. Breakfast now features Starbucks coffee and fantastic...
