5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2008

First time to The Keys, stayed at three resorts...this was outstanding! Location, location! Everything you want is here, no need to leave, with the trading post-store across from the hotel.
Cleanliness, pools-hot-tub, beach area all perfect. The tiki bar
completes the property, providing excellent atmosphere. A family
oriented stay...we'll be back!

First, food was incredible. Beautifully presented, perfectly prepared. We found staff to be very accommodating and friendly. Able to pack light due to washers and dryers - did 3 BIG loads of laundry for $6.00 wash & dry! Screened-in porch with tables & chairs leads to room - Huge patio windows that open the full width of the room - almost like having an outdoor bedroom without the bugs. Enjoyed a botle of wine in the porch end of day. Clean, daily maid service exceptional, nice crowd of guests - property quiet after 10 and we were right at the pool area. Music by pool not too loud during the day and decent music - no rap :) Rustle of palm trees was like a lullaby. Pool area extremely clean, beach beautiful. Snorkeling ok - shallow area but starting to see some life - some green grass, sponges, lots of fish, tiny corals starting to grow. Saw a few barracuda - perfectly harmless. Never made it to sunset at their pier - we were so relaxed, we fell asleep. Great family resort - kids must have been happy because we didn't hear any screaming/crying - just lots of laughter.

  • Liked — open air rooms - kitchenette, free wi-fi, food, food, food

If you are looking for a place in the Keys for your young children, this is the place for you. I loved how the rooms had sandy areas just outside your private, screened-in porch. My 3-year old played in the sand while I did things in the room. The pool has a gradual entrance which was great for my 13-month old. He could walk in the pool and play and I could sit beside him. The tiki bar/restaurant had a children's menu with a $5 grilled cheese, perfect for any toddler. They even made my son a milk shake with a fun straw. Very friendly staff. If you want a room with a sandy landscape do not get a pool view. Rooms were very clean. I love the tile floor rather than carpet. Wonderful breakfast-cereal, milk, yogurt, fruit, pastries, english muffins, french toast, doughnuts, coffee, juice, tea, PB, jelly, cream cheese, honey and butter. Rooms have dishwasher, oven, fridge, toaster, dishes and flatware.

Just a great place for families to be on the ocean. Terrific central location in Islamorada. Kitchens come in handy when you're traveling with kids, and ours loved the breakfast buffet. Staff wasn't exceptionally warm but the other guests were sure having fun -- and including us in it! Heated pools were great - particularly the zero-entry pool. Perfect for toddlers! We got the feeling of "old Florida" charm with no-frills rooms, sufficiently updated for families. Did it pass my "will I soak in the tub to relax?" test? Sadly, no...but I did bathe the kiddos in it...what does that say? :-)

We stayed here for a week after touring the mainland. After alot of driving about and packing up every night, it was just what we needed for a week of R&R.

We did have to swap rooms a couple of times, but this was because we didn't book - we just rocked up and asked for 2 rooms.

The pools are great, albeit a bit small. The bar is also great, we spent most of our time either there or on the pier, fishing.

It's perfect for a romantic getaway - very quiet and relaxing, you can do things in your own pace, and there are several bars and restaurants nearby - namely Lorelei's across the road, which is where we spent most of our evenings. Fab food, and good live music most evenings too.

I cannot fault this place at all, it was an amazing week for us there and we will definately be back in the near future.

My family stayed at the Islander in early November for 3 nights. I give it an "above average" review because of the value that you get for your money, we paid about $130/night after AAA discount. The hotel was very satisfactory, w/ a full kitchenette, 2 double beds, closet space, a TV, a screened in porch, an outside "patio" w/ only 1 lounge chair (2 would be better) and a shared charcol grill outside the room. All the rooms seem to be close to the pool and the beach area, there was an outdoor restaurant that had daily specials (we didn't eat there except for key lime pie which was good). The staff was helpful, and the continental breakfast was a nice touch, but just for cereal and bagels, the fruit left alot to be desired. The location of the hotel was great, and we saw dolphins swim by and also saw a small squid go along the stairs to the snorkling spot. There are a lot of great things to do in the area, but our favorite day trip was Robbie's which was about 1.5 miles south on the right. They have wild Tarpon that hang out there, it costs $2 to go in, and $3 a bucket of fish if you wish to feed the tarpon, but beware of the pelicans! We had so much fun there, we went everyday to feed the fish and just to hang out. My husband and 9 year old son went fishing w/ Chris, who docks his boat at Robbie's and my son caught 23 keepers yellow-tail snapper and my husband had a 9 foot nurse shark on the line. After their fishing trip, Chris came to the dock to pick up me and my 13 year old daughter and took us for a ride through the mangroves. Another thing we did every night of our stay was tuck the kids in to watch TV for a while so we could go to Lor-e-lei which was across the highway from the Islander. It was a fun place and had happy hour specials. The local's favorite restaurant, which we went to w/ our fresh catch was Lazy Day's, and it was very good. The Hungry Tarpon, just in front of Robbie's, was also good, my favorite was the seared tuna w/ rice and beans. The atmosphere we felt in Islamorada was very friendly and laid back.

  • Liked — The location and the cost
  • Disliked — The sink was outside of the bathroom, in the kitchen area
