“Great place, brilliant view!”
Reviewed May 3, 2014 via mobile

We stayed for 4 days on these lovely grounds. The pools were great, food at the cafe was nice and not terribly expensive.
The service was lovely and housekeeping was great!! They left us plenty of extra coffee when asked.
Our room was upgraded to a king with a balcony and we were greatly surprised. If you stay here have dinner by The Shores pool. Lobster dinner in your swimwear is brilliant!!
We will be back!!

Stayed May 2014, traveled with friends

April 28 -30 we decided to take a trip to the Florida Keys. We drove down from Lake Worth, Florida where we have a second home. We stayed in the Southernmost Hotel on the Beach. It was beautiful. The pool area was clean and inviting. There were even activities poolside and few times a day. We were able to walk to the area where the restaurants and shops were located. Our room was beautifully furnished and we had a great view of the beach from our room. I highly recommend this hotel.

My fiance and I stayed here for three nights and really enjoyed the friendly and accommodating staff....the grounds are beautiful and feel like a luxurious escape! A reservation here gets you access to the Southernmost Hotel property also....its like getting two hotels in one!

Stayed 3 nts and wish it was more. Quiet-on the end of Duvall so not as busy even with the resort there. We had a room next to parking lot and walkway, and in front of where the weddings were on the beach and never heard the noise. Windows and door are so soundproof. Romantic - on the beach, beautiful interiors, need I say more. Upscale - extremely clean, great linens, fresh flowers in the room, delicious and healthy breakfast, great location, super friendly staff. My concern in reading reviews was that you share pool, beach, etc with the 2 resorts and the beach is public but there are so many places on site to get away from the action, or join in. The bar at the beach pool had a girl making Bloody Mary's that were the best we've had. Our favorite spot had to be the pier with the lounge chairs. So cool to be lying over the ocean plus you can take a staircase right down into the water. We rented bikes right there and rode everywhere on the island. Riding at night was no problem. The rooms at Le Mer and Dewey are more than the Southernmost Resorts hotel rooms but if you are looking for a B&B, at least look at these. This place set the mood for our long weekend and it was awesome. Plus, I think it might be one of the only B&Bs on the water. Even if your room isn't oceanview, you are steps from the beach and there is a beautiful patio at Dewey House overlooking the beach with lounge chairs and tables that you can use. Finally, we both noticed the attention to the landscaping. Not only were the flowers and plants beautiful and lush, but there were cool little details everywhere, like walls made of coral and sand cement. Here is my only complaint - we noticed both days that there were several people who weren't hotel guests using the pool chairs, towels and hammocks. For spending that much money, we kind of expected a little bit more in the way of exclusivity and making sure only guests were allowed onsite. That being said, we will be back!

My wife and I spent a quick 4 day stay at Southernmost on the Beach. Needless to say this hotel is one of the best on Key West. The room was super clean, vry nicley decorated. Comfortable,GREAT view (Ocean view king). The staff is very friendly and ALWAYS willing to please. Everyone smiles, says hello or good morning. The bartenders are great! Make good drinks with no watered down drinks at what I thought was a fair price. Megan at the pool bar is very helpful with suggested dinner spots. Never sent us to a place that was not perfect and great food.The property has it's own beach area for hotel guests with numerous hamocks for a aternoon nap or morning wake up relaxing cup of coffee. Three pools that are well maintained and the grounds are perfectly manicured. Really a nice place and just a short walk to all of the hoopla on Duval Street. Great little deli across the street and modeds and bike rental right in front on South Street. Perfect location! We will be returning soon for sure

We had a 50th birthday celebration at this resort and the staff was terrific. Julie M. arranged the perfect surprise reception -she really went out of her way to make it great and also stopped by that evening to see how everything was going. Our hotel room was lovely -in C Building, overlooking the beach. It was a great place for a big group as there were a lot of options and price ranges available for guests. We ate at the restaurant for breakfast and lunch and had very good meals. Highly recommend. Room was clean, service good, everyone friendly -especially the bartenders. Thanks for putting up with our rowdy group and making it such a special event.

Room Tip: In C building with ocean view and balcony. Pricey but worth cost for a special occassion. Others i...

The location of this hotel and the others owned by the same chain is not to be beat - at the quiet end of Duval, just steps from the butterfly conservatory and the southernmost point marker, right on the water.
That being said, I don't feel like this is the best value for the money in a hotel in Key West. If you want room service, this place doesn't offer it, although there are coffeemakers in the rooms.
There was nearly constant work being done, from painting to some very loud construction work near the Tranquility Pool all day long one day, that was kind of unpleasant.
If you want a room that looks directly onto the water with nothing in the way, you won't get one.
As far as I could see, only a couple of the larger suite-style accommodations look directly onto the water. The others have balconies that look into the other rooms and sideways toward the water. Not a bad view but not the best one either, again, for the price of these rooms.
The Shores Bar and the Southernmost on the Beach Cafe are not to be missed and most of the staff at both places was awesome always, with the exception of one perpetually surly female bartender at the Southernmost on the Beach Cafe bar. The food at the cafe was always a hit.
I never DID figure out how to adjust the temperature in the room and a couple times it got a little warm before the A/C kicked on. I just got the feeling that I was on my own here for everything. I could have paid a lot less at a B&B or a smaller hotel for a better feeling of available service.
I know the atmosphere in Key West is more laid-back and casual - that's what we LOVE about it, no pretension, the friendliness - but I do like to have SOME feeling that there are some services and amenities available in a hotel when I pay money to stay there!
Although I adore Key West and I will definitely be back, I may not be back here. It just seems like there are better values and better service for your hotel dollar on the island, including at this end of the island. I came away wondering - "what DID I pay all that money for????"

Room Tip: I didn't see any rooms that face right onto the water. I will say that the higher you go (second...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our property. I am sorry to read that you did not fully enjoy your time with us. Our property is fortunate to be nestled directly on the water’s edge facing the Atlantic Ocean. 30 of our rooms at the Southernmost on the Beach offer our guests an unobstructed, direct view of the ocean with an additional 32 offering our guests a view of the ocean from their room or balcony and the remaining rooms offering our guests a partial view of the ocean from their balcony. I apologize that the work around our Tranquility Pool was disturbing; I will make sure our Management Team is made aware of so we can correct this from affecting our future guest’s stay. I am happy to read you enjoyed our award winning Southernmost Beach Café and Shores Bar. I hope you will give us another opportunity to make a future stay with us exceptional. Thank you again for taking the time to write your review.
