What's the scoop on Postcard Inn/Holiday Isle?

What's the scoop on Postcard Inn/Holiday Isle? We love Islamorada and have always thought of Holiday Isle as a spring break/20-something party place. It looks as if it has been renovated to be a nicer place to stay. Can anyone shed light on the changes? Thank you! B

Yes, it has. The new owners no longer welcome non-guests to the beach/beach bars. Totally different vibe.

@Blue - Remember when they even ran a shuttle to and from the Sand Bar to get people to buy drinks at the Holiday Isle bars? Those days are gone. You can go to places like Shula Burger (on the property) as a non-guest but just try to go to a bar on their beach! Maybe they will change the policy for Spring Break, but for now, non guest = non welcome.

We just went to have a look last week as many years we went there for the beach while staying in Islamorada. This time it was completely deserted, not one soul at the beach. It looked as if nowbody even had stepped on the groomed sand. What a difference - it used to be such a fun place some years back with good live music on weekends. Now there was no music anymore, not even on a weekend.

Shula Buger is good...not great. I agree that the vibe of the place is different. Not the fun loving party place that Holiday Isle was.
