We ate at the restaurant before a snorkeling trip. The place is cozy and the service was good, but the food was only ok, and it was relatively expensive. There was not much the kids liked on the menu. Still, an OK place to start a trip, because it is so convenient.

We stayed one night on our way to Key West last November. We chose it because of the location--close to a couple of nice restaurants and about halfway through our trip. The rooms were clean, beds were comfy, bathroom was clean and the water was hot. It's not a 4 star hotel--but it does not pretend to be. The staff... More

The resort was great; all was clean and all employees attentive to our needs. This is a great place for family and for couples as well. I would highly recommend the resort, restaurant and the marina. I am available should anyone want a reference. Thank you so much.

Fabulous restaurant and resort! I have lived in the keys on and off for the past six years and been coming there for the past 20. I have seen the full renovation of this beautiful property and Rob has put his heart and soul into it along with his wonderful staff and team members. The restaurant and bar is fabulous,... More

We stayed for one night in May on our way to Key West to celebrate a friend's birthday. We had a really pleasant stay. We tucked into the bar for a couple of beers and met the owner who happened to still be working. We mentioned we were going to head out for a bite to eat, and he asked... More

First off let me start by saying what a fun and cool place this is. We got their a little earlier than our scheduled check-in time and thought we would introduce ourselves to the front desk. Believe it or not our room was ready. Chris asked us if we'd like to go ahead and put our stuff in the room... More

We stayed in this hotel on 5/5 for one night and we were very disappointed we stayed here. The hotel or what looks more like a cheap motel is way over priced. The rooms might be OK for an $80 a night, but they charged us double that price: $160. We had a really bad experience here, my wife left... More

If you are looking for a "resort" this is not your place but if you are looking for a place where you feel like everyone that works here is your family and when you walk through the door you are home then this is your spot. I can't recall any other spot I have ever stayed were I have hugged... More

The hotel is more like a motel. Their website paints a very different picture of what it actually is. I have no idea why it has the word "resort" in its name. Finding the lobby is a mission. Unless you know where you are going, it's almost impossible to find. The outside of the building, including the doors and walkway... More
