This place is wonderful!!! The rooms are modern and the new updates really take the resort to a new level!! We did have some minor issues while we were there but the front desk was extremely helpful and they discounted our room one of the nights because the water was not working. (Lots of construction going on around the vicinity of the resort).
I have traveled extensively and I am pretty harsh critic. As far as resorts go in Key West - this is by far one of the best.
If you have never traveled to Key West be aware that the beaches are not that good and the town in generally really dirty with chickens roaming the streets! However, the scuba diving is amazing which is the only reason we chose Key West. If you do dive, use South Point Divers. Contact them directly since the resorts increase their prices to pad themselves a commission.
The hotel is also about 1 mile from Duval & Front St. where most of the bars and stuff are located. This really didn't seem to be an issue at first but after a while the walking really got old!!!!
One last note - there is a "resort fee" of $20 per day. We were told by the front desk that if we had booked directly with them we would not of had to pay this. However, since they discounted our room because of the water issue, we didn't argue about the fee.
