“Great vacation spot in Islamorada”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

Very clean, nice rooms. Resort property is great with pool, hot tub, and free non-motorized sport activities. Beach area is beautiful, but not for swimming. The beaches are rocky, but most are in the keys. Great half way stop on your way to Key West. I would definitely recommend this resort.

We came here to meet family for spring break. Our group included ages 11 years old through 59 years old. We all really enjoyed the property.

Although the free kayak/pedal boats were rather cheap, they were still a blast and the staff here was very friendly.

The hammocks around the resort were very relaxing. The pool temperature was perfect.

Being able to dock our boat a few feet from the room was wonderful.

Although our room (a full ocean view suite), was very nice and the patio was great, it was pretty noisy in the morning. Its an old hotel and between neighbors and the maids, don't expect to sleep in very late. Other family had a villa and did not have the noise problem.

Staff in the lobby were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Not sure I would stay in the hotel wing next to the lobby. We heard people saying they could not sl...

As our trip involved a location wedding, our booking was made by the mother of the groom. We didn't really know what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised. Our room was nicely appointed, with a view of the water, the front desk staff was very accommodating. My only complaint would be the continental breakfast. The room it is served in is very small, so if many people decided to eat at the same time, it was crowded. There were a few tables and chairs inside the room which would be inadequate in inclement weather. Food choices were very limited and muffins were store- bought variety still in their individual plastic wrapper.
We were close to some delicious restaurants and our wedding at a place down the road was spectacular.
It turned out to be a wonderful choice.

I visited this week with a twenty year old and a 5 year old--quite a spread' but we found common ground. The place was a composite of all the reviews I've read. Beautiful view right from our oceanfront bed. Everything was clean if a bit worn. The staff was friendly but not intrusive. There were mostly adults, but also children of a variety of ages. A very international crowd. Breakfast was marginally ok. View and location were ideal.

Room Tip: Ocean view is a must

I have to admit, I was pretty nervous after we booked this hotel after seeing some of the reviews. As we went to check in I wa kind of holding my breath until....I realizes t was PARADISE! The rooms are beyond clean (we had a garden view #201), and I can not express enough how comfortable the beds are. I actually peeled back the linens so I could see what brand they are. There aren't elevators, but it's only a two story hotel. The grounds are better then some super expensive resorts I've stayed at. Two pools, a hot tub, tennis courts and the ocean to enjoy as well as use of non-motorized water sports. Views are prob some of the eat in Islamorada. Staff was very nice and helpful. Parking was easy breezy. I could continue to rave about this place, but the best advice I can say is just book this hotel. We probably will again and trust me you won't be sorry.

The front desk staff was extremely helpful and courteous. They recommended some great places to eat. We decided to spurlge on a suite, because some of the reviews said it was updated. Our suite wasn't updated in the last 20 years. It was large and the furniture was comfortable, but the bathroom was dated and needed repairs. There was a flat screen tv in the living area, that was not hd and was hung high on the wall, making it difficult to watch. To get wifi, it was necessary to sit on the balcony, which wasn't all bad. Great views from the balcony. It was nice to have water sports available on site, but the guy who owned the hut/equipment acted like it was an inconvenience to help anyone. Okay for a night or two, but wouldn't spend any longer.

Room Tip: Ocean view was great, away from highway 1.
