“Tranquil...yet very pricey”
Reviewed June 14, 2014 via mobile

This property is very beautiful. The island is private and extremely quiet. We loved the cute little cottages.

Make sure to get a cottage as close to the water as possible.

Waiting for the ferry to get back to mainland can be a bit frustrating at times.

The price was a little steep. We used Amex platinum service to book. This got us a few perks.


Stayed August 2013, traveled as a couple

Booked through Amex after leaving a "nightmare' hotel we initially booked in Key West. As soon as we got to the private boat dock that takes you over to the island we knew we were in the right place. As close to a Private island as you can get, beautiful decor, comfortable accommodations, great pool & beach. The restaurant (Lattudes) was amazing and the staff was wonderful, special thanks Lou, Katie, Bob and Mel(?) who were awesome. Even the locals were nice. We ate there 4 out of the 5 nights we stayed and each meal was great. Even the landscaping was amazing. Loved the complementary basket of muffins each morning and this is definitely worth the $$. We will be back!

Room Tip: Only negative would be the rocky/shells sand on the beach as you enter the water (bring flips to wad...

I loved this place and although my view was not great because I took one of the "cheaper" rooms, the room was LOVELY and it's a stone's throw from the shoreline where the ocean charms as far as the eye can see. Breakfast on the beach in the restaurant was heaven, and I would definitely recommend it if you have some extra cash and don't want to be in the middle of the party scene on Duval. Very nice rooms, beach and services.

Room Tip: Get a view.

Love love love it here. Going back. Very private and quiet, never feels crowded. You're on a private island.Cottages fantastic (so nice to have the space) and the basket of pastries each morning make it so special. Very expensive but worth saving and doing it. Hard to go back and stay anywhere else after this!

Room Tip: ocean view is perfect... don't pay for oceanfront unless you insist. With ocean view we could be...

The accommodations and service were first rate. The launch to get back and forth to the "mainland" is slightly inconvenient but the cost of the exclusivity.

For a special vacation it has all you'd want, but for a mixed business meeting, more than you need.

Went for 4 nights - with 2 couples - the boys were both celebrating birthdays a day apart. Tami in the concierge's office was superb and made our trip very special. From our experiences at the Spa to a special private sunset dinner cruise on the water - we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I would definitely consult with the office before choosing water sports around the island since there are many and she knows the better ones!

Room Tip: If you are "beach" people - get one of the cottages directly on the ocean so you can walk...

I'm so in love with this private island. Food is fantastic and so is the spa. Cottages are spacious and have everything you need. Peaceful and comfortable. We'll be back for sure. Hope to stay longer next time.
