We returned from the Islander Resort with heavy hearts. What a great place. It's nothing fancy but recently renovated and our ktichenette - king bed room was well stocked with anything we would need. Water pressure in the shower was a little low and that is my only complaint.
The continental breakfast was well stocked too with quite an assortment to choose from. The coffee is a little weak but this is not Starbucks. Both pools were very nice and clean. the hot tub was very warm.
Gave it a go on the fishing pier and caught some small fish but a fella next to me hooked some kind of sand shark and you could easily see some big tarpon and baracuda just looking over the side. The water is so clear here.
We didn't try the snorkling on their beach because a tide of man of war Jelly fish had come in and they do not make good swimming buddies.
We went to the Tiki Bar/Restaurant 2'xs and had great service, drinks and food. A must try is the fried lobster bites and the tuna burger. I dream about these dishes.
As we were leaving Islamorada, we stopped and looked around at a couple of the hotels we had considered before choosing the islander. Cheeca Lodge and Chesapeake.were pretty but the Islander has a lot less rooms/people and much more Beach and 2 pools and privacy. Both of them have lots of rooms and people cramed into small but lovely landscapes.
You won't go wrong with Islander.
