I am the skeptic of our couple; my mate was pretty thrilled when he opened the door to our suite and showed me through. We were main floor, opening right onto the beach front, as I had wanted, January 8th to 11th.
Impressive: Very comfortable king sized bed, with equally wonderful pillows. Even the pull-out couch in the living area was memory foam and perfectly comfortable, with the soothing sound of the ocean swells.
Impressive: Kitchen accouterments-High end appliances, beautiful dishes and cutlery, plus dishwasher!
Impressive: Right on a private beach. HEATED swimming pool. Hot tub. Loads of sand area, along with chaise lounges and umbrellas.
Impressive: Quiet, which was what we desired. Also, VERY family friendly--kids, grandchildren, lots of games to set up on the sand. Safe, as well, as property is bounded by pier at one end and rocks at the other end, so your children can play without worry.
Impressive: Great staff, so friendly and helpful. You feel like you know them by the end of your stay. No question or query goes unnoticed. They really do go out of their way to make your stay memorable.
Impressive: Within excellent travel time of awesome snorkeling, museums, even Key West, this motel is smack in the middle of everything Key related you could want.
Impressive:This location has everything you need to stay in, as well. We wanted a grill and found not only propane, but also charcoal--what a dream. We had one night in with charcoaled steak and lobster we did ourselves. Lovely.
Impressive: We learned when we were there that the owners were about to take over the adjacent restaurant, which already provides room service. While we never ordered room service, we went for dinner there on our last night, and the New York Striploin (with portobello gravy) was heavenly and perfectly cooked. We did not expect such a romantic ocean side dinner.
All in all, a 5 star experience in a motel atmosphere. Who knew?
