My wife and I had to help our mother-in-law buy a car from a dealership in Homestead so we decided to go to Islamorada as we were halfway there. We have stayed at the property a couple of times before and always had a wonderful experience. When we got to the hotel we were pleasantly surprised, as they had a... More

The hotel is beautiful. Clean and newly renovated. I recommend the ocean front suite. Well worth the extra money to truly enjoy your stay to the max. The staff is great and the front office manager was in the lobby talking to guests with the general manager. Ensuring that all were enjoying my their stay

Lovely, clean, sleak and beach-ey renovation and great location. A good choice if you don't want the crowds of Key West or big hotels and want something a little quieter- but still with all the trimmings and modernity.

Stayed in a king size room which is small but looks just like the pictures. If you're in the Keys it's likely you'll be out on the water most of the day and will welcome the laid back vibe of the resort when you return. We enjoyed the in room robes, Keurig and mini fridge in the room. There is... More

I stay in around 50 different hotels a year and the staff really made us feel special from having our keys ready upon check-in, acknowledging our... More

Just to be clear we never stayed here only had a meeting room but the resort looks very nice almost brand new. We rented a meeting room and I must say the chairs provided to us are simply not good enough, you can see the photo. Almost like a baby chair. Otherwise service was good and that goes for the...
