“Cheap to be in the Keys, but really basic”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

This review is about the Looe Reef Resort hotel and not about tiki bar. I got a room here for 2 nights and everything was good, or better was "regular". We came with a baby but they have not cribs so I had to move the mattress on the ground. I sent them several mails in advance to understand their crib availability but they never got back.
Breakfast is not included and the room is very very basic. Cheap fornitures, old doors and a very small bathroom. Main room was large and clean. Beds were just renewed so we slept in a new bed, but the old ones were stacked in the area in front of the rooms so when we arrived we got the impression of a real mess!
Service Is present till 8 pm and is nice and helpful. Tiki bar is close to the rooms for help and for spending a good night. Silence is at 10 pm.

My husband and I went to Looe Key Tiki Bar in October 2013 and again in January 2014. We cannot wait to return. We absolutely love this place. The owners are constantly making improvements and it shows. The entire pool area is redone and looks beautiful. We were there for the “Opening night” of the Upper Deck dining. The atmosphere and food were excellent. We had eaten many times at the Tiki Bar which is bar food and enjoyed it very much, but being able to dress casually and enjoy a fine dining experience outside in a beautiful setting by the pool was awesome. The food presentation is gorgeous. My husband had the Shrimp Scampi and I had the Beef Tenderloin Medallions. Both were great. Once the word gets out about this new option at Looe Key I am sure it will be busy. This area is also non-smoking, which is a plus for me. The rooms are in the process of being renovated. New beds are on there way. That will be another positive improvement. We really enjoyed this place and next time will also try out a dive trip. There will definitely be a next time
