We landed in Fort Lauderdale and were planning on driving down to Key West planning a stay at Key Largo, Islamarada and Key West. We arrived at Dove Creek and were a bit apprehensive when we turned the corner but then we arrived and we were pleasantly surprised. We pulled into the great parking area under the hotel (shady/roomy) and made our way to the front desk. The lady there was very pleasant and bought us to our room which was on the third level. The room was beautiful, clean and had a great view. We bought in our suitcases and went down to inspect the grounds. The sitting area with hammocks and chairs was great, there was even shade (for me NOT a sun worshipper) where we enjoyed a beautiful ocean breeze and sunset. Not a ton of people, quiet, peaceful and relaxing. We then went next door and had a great dinner. All in all a great experience. We stayed at a couple more places and even a more upscale place in Key West but none compared to Dove Creek. We even stopped to have lunch on the way back and walk back over for a few minutes. We are already planning our next trip there for a few days (forget the rest of the keys!). It was one of the best hotel/resort experiences I have ever had. We thoroughly enjoyed it.
