There's nothing we could imagine to improve on our entirely too short stay here. Everything and everyone was fantastic. Quiet and private, with a stunning beachfront on which the view of the water is rivaled by the beautiful palms throwing dappled sun across the sand. The cottage was immaculate and spacious. The staff, from housekeeping to the front desk were unobtrusive yet always available. I had arranged several "surprises" for my wife and thanks to Baye everything was flawless and easy to arrange. What a place; what a team!

There’s a dilemma when writing about your favorite vacation destination: by writing about something, can you ruin it? My wife and I stayed at The Moorings for a week, to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. It was the perfect spot for us to do as little or as much as we wanted to do. The landscaping is lush and maintained on a daily basis by a dedicated crew. We had the honeymoon cottage, which has a lovely view of the ocean, about 50 yards from the beach. Very quiet at night. We slept 9-10 hours every night, which we never do back home. Service by the folks in reception is responsive and pleasant. They delivered the New York Times to our cottage every morning. Across the road is a wonderful place, the Morada Bay Beach Cafe, to have dinner and watch the sunset. We recommend driving south about 15 minutes to Habanos for a Cuban sandwich, rice and black beans, and of course key lime pie. Islamorada is an interesting island with a variety if textures. There are very few chain restaurants or retail stores. The Moorings is a perfect place for a couple to get away and reconnect.

My husband and I visited The Moorings last week and couldn’t have had a more enjoyable stay. The beach was stunning so peaceful and relaxing. The weather was windy but it was nice to lay on the beach and read a book in one of the beach hammocks with the breeze. One of the days we were there we noticed there was some build up of seaweed on the beach with the wind at its high speeds coming off the ocean, this seaweed was to be expected. We drove around to some of the local spots on the island and saw that it was showing up everywhere, seemed par for the course that it would be on The Moorings Beach too. However, The staff was on the beach all day picking up the large amounts of seaweed making sure we had unobstructed views of the ocean and could get into the water. By the end of the week seaweed was all cleared. All part of the ‘island life’ we cherish so much when visiting. Great experience. Great people. Highly recommend.

Thank you for your thoughtful review and feedback! The hammocks on the beach are definitely one of our staples, and we are so glad you enjoyed relaxing on the beach. Unfortunately, sometimes if the wind direction and sargassum blooms are heavy it can build up onshore this time of year. Mother nature is the only one who can control it, but our grounds and beach crew do an amazing job raking the beach and keeping it as free of seaweed as possible. Thank you for recognizing their hard work! We hope to have you stay with us again very soon!

We prepaid $6000 and were not able to use the beach or swim because of six feet of seaweed thatThe ownership was aware that they were experiencing a severe problem with seaweed (about six feet deep at the edge of the beach). It was impossible to enter the water for the three days we were there. If the owner hadn't admitted to me that he should have notified us about the seaweed, I would say that it was an act of nature. But, not only did he know about the severity of the seaweed, he complained to me about how big a problem it was to him. We were not made aware. We prepaid $6,000 with the main goal of being able to sit on the beach and swim. We could not do either. No concession was offered to us. I think we should have been given a choice.

It certainly is a beautiful piece of property. From the details, you can tell the quality: the sheets are soft, the toiletry is high end, the towels are soft, and the service is great. That beach is just so very peaceful. It is the type of place you wanna be if you don’t want a pool party every night, just you and the beach. However, (there are two of us and we were in the south lodge), all the issues previously said in another review are true- the bed is old, we had a king size bed in the south lodge, but it is clearly old, very soft and not supportive around lower back. The bathroom is very small, there is no pic online. But if you sit on the toilet your elbow can easily touch the sink. You can definitely hear your neighbors. But we really didn’t mind having neighbors, we met both groups and even went out to dinner with one of the couples! we had a great time. There is no restaurant or spa onsite, but all the recommended locations were great. There is a great little brewery right around the corner, we were there 4 out of the 7 nights! We look forward to coming back when all the remodeling is done next year!!
