This resort is beautiful and a huge amount of cash has clearly been invested in the property. The waterfront setting is terrific and Key West is a special place.
However, I was left disappointed by the standard of service at the resort. The staff at the pool side bar were surly to the point of rudeness but the front desk staff, concierge and doormen all need to raise their game too. As a visitor from the UK, I generally find staff at US resorts in this price bracket to be outstanding. That wasn't the case here.
We stayed in a very spacious and pleasant one bedroom suite, next to a guest room which was being used to provide spa services. This seemed odd. Why aren't such services delivered in a purpose built area? It wouldn't have troubled me but the ladies working in the spa sat outside our bedroom window from breakfast time on Sunday morning making telephone calls.
In fairness, I hadn't expected a top quality room as I had used Hotwire to make the booking. The Casa Marina appears as a Hot Rate hotel on this website. Do some detective work when booking and you can save a bundle on the advertised rates.More
