“Self contained oasis !”
Reviewed November 17, 2013 via mobile

We cannot begin to tell you how happy we were with our stay here. Fantastic accommodation and facilities . Super friendly staff , especially Jacintha at the reception. You all made us feel really welcome .

It is as most people have reviewed and pictures do it justice completely .

For the negative comments on location I would say it offers a paradise away from the busy Key West centre but is easily accessible on bikes in less than 10 minutes (and more fun).

Book with confidence and great for a romantic couples break! We would happily return to Parrot Key anytime and hope we get the opportunity.

We booked are trip months in advance for a oceanview 2 bedroom waterfront suite.After viewing the web sites beautiful photos we booked an paid dearly. What we got was a 2 bedroom suite overlooking a canal for $800 plus for a 2 nite stay. The nice rooms on the web site we were all full we were told






Ripped Off at Parrot Key. Be careful with what you think you are booking. Made our reservations months in advance for a waterfront 2 bedroom suite at $800 plus for 2 nites. Web sites photos looked great. What we got was a view of some crappy canal. We complained and were told what we thought we booked was all full an after all we did have a waterfront view of the canal. The property was clean an quite an a lot of construction right out front. We will never stay here again an we go to Key West every yr. For that kind of $ you can do a lot better somewhere else. The sister property in Marathon Key called Tranquility Bay is much nicer. So Parrot Key gets the bird from me, don't get suckered like we did. R. Hartzell Reading Pa.

Despite the heavy construction and chaos outside its walls, Parrot Key was a lovely little oasis of tranquility. We stayed in the three story two bedroom/ two bath villas with an "ocean view" [more on the quotations around that in a minute] First the good:

The Good:
- Very clean
- Well maintained property.
- Friendly front desk staff
- comfortable beds

The Not So Good:

- DO NOT PAY EXTRA for the ocean view. We paid extra for a glimpse of the inlet from the back deck.

- Be prepared to experience a nice hotel, NOT a nice resort. I'm not sure what we paid the extra resort fee for and for that feel a bit ripped off. I've gone to a bunch of resorts and have happily paid resort fees but this just hotel doesn't fit the description. There's no spa. No nice restaurant on the premises. The tiki bar was going through reservations and was closed. Sure the pools [all outdoor] are nice but they have no attendant or even a place to get beach towels [you have to head over to the front desk for that], and parking in a Walgreens every day doesn't add to the resort feel either. I saw people on this site complaining about the resort fee and didn't understand, after all, resorts have resort fees, no? After having visited this place, I get it. It's not a resort. It's just a nice expensive hotel that you will be required to pay additional extra resort taxes on.

<<Special note ***If traveling with kids** >> Be careful. We had what we thought would be a two story villa, but it was actually three levels, with a flight of stairs to reach the front door, and then a tall set of stairs to reach the main level, and then more stairs to reach the secondary bedrooms. Considering we had very young children this was tough. Unlike most resorts/hotels that provide complimentary crib or pack-n-play they do not offer it and said they might get it for us but would have to charge us for it. Not very kid-friendly.

A great place for families who are not into the bar scene but want to enjoy water sports renting a scooter and shopping around town and taking in The Hemingway house or the Butterfly conservatory.Really well kept and the staff are professional and friendly.A home away from home.
This can also work for couples who are looking for a get away.NICE PLACE we will be back!!!

This is a tranquil place just a short cab ride from down town Key West. The grounds are like an oasis kept pristine even though it is in a busy commercial area. The units encircle four separate
pools that are heavily landscaped to keep them relatively private but accessible from each other.
The second floor unit was really large with a living room with a tv refrigerator etc. This is the second time we were there and we will be back again!

TV did not work in 2 or the 3 rooms that our party rented. Told pool, cafe and bar close at 10 pm. Went there at 7:50pm told they were closing cafe and bar at 8 pm and would not be able to be served. Shower had no water pressure and the toilet paper at the airport was better quality. The next morning we were told twice that the cafe was closed for renovations. When we asked to speak to a manager we were told he would call us, we checked out and 20 minutes later the front desk person called us back and said he made a mistake the cafe was open! By this time we had left the area. Have been calling since 8:30 am yesterday and have still not received a call back from the manager. Just now for the first time I got a voice mail but it is for the hotel not the manager. All this after spending approximately $411.00 per room on 3 rooms! Over $1200.00 for one of the worst experiences I have ever had at a hotel. Wanted to give the resort a chance to make this right but since no one will return our calls I decided to put this up in hopes of saving other people from this type of rip off Sincerely, Terri Engel
