This small boutique resort on the bay side of Islamorada offers comfortable accommodations, a private boat ramp, a private boat dock, and ample trailer parking. The buildings are older but remodeled, refreshed, and comfortable. The private lagoon is great for swimming and the bayfront dock offers a great location for beautiful sunset views. The manager is extremely accommodating and helpful. they provide - for a fee - use of the kayaks and bicycles. The pool is large, spotless, and warm. A great little getaway resort!

What a great place to stay! My husband and I are avid fisherman, and wanted a small, quite resort that we could launch our boat and go fishing! The Coral Bay Resort delivered, and much more. Randy was awesome from the moment we called to book our room, until we had to check out - so accommodating for anything we needed. Clean, quite, and comfortable room. Kitchen was fully stocked with everything needed to cook-in if we wanted to (which we did almost every night). Great boat basin to keep your boat. On site bait Freezer, cleaning Station, ice, laundry, pool to relax after a long day of fishing, and the most beautiful sunsets from the dock! The boat launch is fine, but be aware of the time you launch and pull, as high tide is the best for both if you are bringing a boat (we have a 23ft Bay Boat). We can't wait to come back!!

I stayed in a one bedroom unit for 6 nights January 3 - 9, 2020. We mostly wanted to lounge around the pool or dock but my room had everything I needed to cook or relax and watch TV. The bathroom was very nice, good water pressure in the shower. The resort isn't fancy but it's clean and comfortable and run by truly nice people. I loved seeing the wildlife in the area. Great place to get away from the hustle bustle after the holidays. I will return.

Room Tip: none of the rooms are far from the water so I like the rooms closer to the office, nice and quiet.

We have been going here two to three times a year for a dozen years. It offers everything we want: a pool, beach on a private lagoon, boat ramp and marina basin, fishing pier, deck overlooking Florida Bay/Gulf of Mexico/Everglades National Park with awesome sunsets, a tiki hut and BBQ grills. The rooms seem to be in a constant upgrade with memory foam mattresses the latest addition. Randy and Sarah and their crew are always nearby to help in any way.

We just came back from a week with old friends on their first trip and they fell in love immediately and have booked for another week in the fall. We will join them. This place is truly magical.

Amazing view and accommodations.
Staff eager to assist yet maintains your privacy.
Grounds were maintained to near perfection every morning.
Rooms/suites are very clean, efficient overlooking the ocean with the refreshing breeze blowing through the windows each morning.

Shout out to Randy, his wife and their assistance who went above and beyond. (Name unknown)
Also Maria and her friendly associates.
Made the stay complete.

Excellent! 2 years and just booked to return for our 3rd.
Family-oriented, beautiful sunsets, snorkeling, location is perfect with great places to eat and a Publix grocery store nearby. Grills outside each room, games, and most importantly the Manager Randy is excellent.

Our stay at Coral Bay was fabulous! From the welcoming staff to the clean, comfortable amenties, everything was more than we expected. We snorkeled off the dock, took an AWESOME Wildlife & Eco-Tour with Captain Liz Lyne, that was suggested to us from Angie, who was so knowlegeable and friendly! She exceeded our expectations and even took us out to the ocean side for a special snorkeling adventure. It was an educational extravaganza!!
Angie and her staff were outstanding in service and friendliness. We can't wait to be there again!

We have just checked out of Coral Bay Resort. It is an absolutely lovely place to relax! Clean, comfortable, beautiful grounds, warm pool and a ramp and dock on property for our 20 foot skiff. The staff was great and quickly cleaned the property after two days of high winds during our visit (the only negative - thanks Mother Nature!)

We are so thankful for a couple we met in the Charlotte airport a year or so ago for telling us about this place. We hope to be back again for another visit!

We couldn’t say enough great things about the resort. There was lots of space for the kids to run and roam safely. The pool was large and always clean as well as beach access to the bay for extra fun. We loved all the places to post up and lounge with a cocktail or good book. The staff and owners were hospitable and involved in making your stay comfortable and enjoyable. We’ve already booked next year!

My first visit to Islamorada. I came with my sister and brother-in-law. What an amazing resort. We stayed in a studio attached to a separate bedroom. Units 9 & 10. The place is beautiful. So clean. The grounds are beautiful. Heated pool is so warm and spotless. There is a dock, tiki bar, small beach. Plenty of lounge chairs. We were out on the dock every night, such gorgeous sunsets. Randy is such a friendly, knowledgeable manager. He actually took the time to call us and let us know our room was ready early. He was very present around the resort checking to make sure everything was ok. Housekeeping does an amazing job. Place was spotless. I could go on and on how wonderful this resort is. The way the keys are supposed to be! Can’t wait to come back.

I’m not with the resort but just a traveler just like you. It would best if you called them. The Keys were hit hard. Approximately 50 miles further south was where Irma made landfall. I would call them.

How many pools do you have?
Answer from Angie M
Islamorada, Florida
We have one swimming pool. We do also have what we call a "tidal pool". It's part of the Gulf/FL Bay waters. It's surrounded by rocks with a deck on the outside, let's little fish in but keeps big fish out.
