My wife and I were with a group. The hotel took care of all our needs and provided good food and drinks for our parties. Our room was fine with the possible exception of the air conditioner not making the room as cold as we would have liked. However, it was definelty not too noisy.
The construction was not a problem for us nor for any member of our group.
The steaks at Shula's were outstanding cuts of meat although expensive. But, given the location I was not surprised at the prices. We ate breakfast at the Dennis Pharamacy two blocks away which proved good food at a cheap price and provided some local history.
The pool was small but seemed large enough since the beach was also popular with sun bathers. The food at the beach bar was good.
I probably will not travel to Key West again unless I fly into the Key West Airport, we landed at Miami and traveled by van to Key West (too long a ride - 4 hours). However, if I did go to Key West again, I would stay at the Reach.
The unkown is that that the property is on the market so who knows what the future will bring.
