The Room was ok, I understand that they are under renovations, but the tiki bar is dirty, the locals that don't pay resort fees to use the facilities like the showers and pool .Bring glass bottles to the pool and leave their trash there, they also put their feet on the edge of the bar and on top of it...

Nice new docks, nice swimming pool 8ft at drop end. And a nice tiki bar happy hour is from 3-6 newsy priced drinks at happy Hour. Tell them harry sent you. Lots of remodeling is almost done. They have put a lot of ninety into this place. It looks like it will be a awesome place.

We used this resort as a motel stop-over on the way back from Key West. It was clearly being used by locals as a week-end or longer vacation venue, and the poolside bar was very lively. The rooms were being renovated and were quite stylish for the price, and adequately equipped.There are several blocks of rooms and the quieter ones... More

Absolutely horrible! The word "Resort" should not be in the name. Sliding doors barely lock, no light bulbs in any of that lamps, bathtub was hideous. Would not recommend to anyone. Water in the faucet runs all night, there were no soaps or even full size towels when we arrived.

We stayed at Sombrero Resort and Marina for a 5 day fishing vacation. We brought our boat with us. Although there was a seperate fee for the slip, it was nice that our room was literally steps away from the boat (since I asked for a water view). Our beds were extremely comfortable. The pool is nice and there is... More

Many of the rooms have been upgraded and are wonderful, especially with fully furnished condo's more or less, the staff is helpful and the pools and Tiki Bar are a nice touch. Happy hour is fun - cozy up with some locals - it's a lot of fun.

I knew when I booked this hotel, a few several months in advance, I knew it would be under renovation so that was not the major problem. The woman I spoke to on the phone told me our room would be renovated by the time we arrived. When I called to confirm a few days before our trip I was... More

I've waited for a bit to write this review, in hopes my opinion would soften. It did not. My daughter's and I were guests for 7 long days in March of 2016. The resort was under major renovation, which was NOT mentioned at the time the reservation was made. Forget about happy hour at the pool. It's packed full of... More

Prior to making my reservation I had called ahead to inquire about the construction that is actually happening at the hotel. In doing so the receptionist informed me about what has been finished and what to expect. The room that I needed was perfect for my family as I was looking for a two bedroom with a kitchen. When I...
