“Lovely Quaint Lodge with Beautiful Views - A True Getaway!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

Stayed at the Dove Creek Lodge and couldn't have been happier with it.
Absolutely loved everything about it. Debbie greeted us with such warmth and friendliness
that you rarely find in a chain hotel. Her suggestions were spot on. She was incredibly helpful
and sweet The key lime tarts were every bit as good as everyone had raved and just couldn't wait to get to them. The fruit was also very fresh and there was plenty of other good breakfast choices all done with style. Snappers is a perfect stop for dinner and music just steps away.
The views combined with the well manicured landscaping were so peaceful and relaxing.
Hard to impress someone who grew up in Miami but I was impressed and surprised at just
how wonderful everything was. They even had piped in music by the pool. Sorry I didn't get to the Kayaks. Will just have to go back. Nothing but great things to say about this place.
Thanks for the wonderful service!

We stayed at the Dove Creek Lodge last week strictly based on reviews from tripadvisor. We were very happy with our stay. Our room was spacious and comfortable. We felt like we we were on a private property as we were the only ones around most of the time. My husband and I had the pool to ourselves many times and we also enjoyed kayaking and the hammocks. The restaurant next door was excellent, we had a terrific meal and some great wine and we really enjoyed the live music. The propery is very nice and we really enjoyed the breakfast, I had seen some mixed reviews regarding the breakfast but we were very happy with the setting and what was served. We will definitely be back.

From the moment we checked in to the moment we left we used the word PERFECT all weekend. When we arrived our room was not ready (we got there early) and Debbie (who is great and wonderful at recommendations) suggested a restaurant for lunch and offered to call us when our room was ready. Most other reviews said the rooms were clean but boy were they!! The facilities are serene and just what you want from a stay in the Keys. The location is ideal--on the border of Key Largo and Islamorada. Breakfast was delicious and surely convenient. And yes-- the key lime tarts are everything and more. I would not hesitate to return to Dove Creek.

My husband and I stayed at Dove Creek for just one night on the way to Key West and we did not want to leave. This place is great. On check in we were personally escorted to our one bedroom suite which was a free upgrade. The beach is small and so is the pool area but they were never overcrowded We felt like we had the place to ourselves a lot even though they were booked to capacity. Snappers restaurant across the bay was delicious and I highly recommend laying on Dove Creeks beach while listening to their live music float across the water on Saturday night ( only heard if outside). Kayaks were fun. And if u go to Snappers get the key lime colada - its delicious. Now we're in key west at Ocean Key resort and pretty disappointed in it - wish we'd stayed put!!!

Just got home from a weekend getaway, my birthday, my husbands birthday, and our anniversary! This place was perfect, kyacks for guests, great staff, breakfast, pool table, hot tub and pool! Everything u could think of! Water rentals right there and Snappers bar in the back was perfect mahi! My one and only complaint, the room was advertised as a king bed, being on all these great holidays we planed on sleeping close, this bed was 2 twin beds anchored together... The worst to snuggle in the middle or on a twin, very disappointed with this...

This is a beautiful, quiet boutique hotel on the ocean side of Key Largo. Very well-maintained property, and friendly staff welcomes guests like family. Lovely pool and hammocks overlook the ocean. Original fresh and healthy continental breakfast are unmatched. This is the perfect place to get away from the world. We didn't want to leave!

This place is a small and quaint and I loved it. Thé view is wonderful. It' s like waking up to paradise every day. The breakfast is lovely as they give you fresh bread, yogurt parfaits, and key lime tarts. It was very close to the state park which we really enjoyed. I would definitely recommend this lodge for couples. They havé à Nice pool and not tub too.
