We stopped here for 2 nights on our way to Key West.
We had such a nice time, we stayed two more nights on our return trip.
We enjoyed borrowing the resorts' kayaks, fishing rods and bicycles. They have snorkle equipment too and kitchen's in some units.
Walk to fun food-bar Laticia's(sp) has entertainment, Debbiei's across the street has great baked goods and soups.
I fished at nearby Bud & Mary's marina and caught our dinner which was cooked to perfection that night at Lazy Dayz restaurant, next to the marina...highly recommended.

Wash all their dishes you use or pay an additional 25.00 fine. partying kids at 2:00 a.m. banging on musical instruments annoyed our UK neighbors. Small unit close to ocean but no view. upstairs steps to units are a hazard and poorly built. Dumpy little mom and pop stop thats over rated. pay the extra money and get something better

I was not expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised!! Nice clean room with large closet, right in the heart of islamorada. I came down for a wedding and left my dresses in the closet. The two ladies in the front office were very helpful and shipped them to my house. Nice view of the water with some hammocks and lawn chairs. I would stay here again!

My husband and I took our yearly vacation down to The Keys. We decided to stay at The La Jolla after we saw the advertisement on the Florida Fishing Report and Sportsman Adventures with Captain Rick Murphy. And it couldn't have been a better choice.

The staff was wonderful. The manager Alan was so helpful. As well as the front desk staff. They were always willing to give suggestions for food or things to do during our stay.

We did not bring our boat this time but plan to in the future. While fishing from the dock, we did get the opportunity to met Capt. Rick Murphy,when he came in from a charter.

Thank you La Jolla.

What a wonderful old time Keys Resort! We are locals from Big Pine Key. Wanted to go to Islamorada for bowling and shopping. Decided to stay for the weekend. Researched through Trip Advisor and decided on La Jolla. Stayed in Unit D as there was to be 6 of us. There turned out to be only 4 that made the weekend. But what a great resort. Directly on the gulf side. Immaculately clean. Unit D has two bedrooms each with their own bath and full kitchen. Faced the lovely beach area and gulf. Nice chairs to sit out and relax and even has a brick barbecue you can use. We didn't get a chance to use pool as it was a cool weekend (November 5th-7th). The pool is rather small and near the entrance but it is hidden away with nice tropical landscaping. I really cannot say enough about how nice this resort was. The only downside with Unit D is that if you did have 6 people (it advertises can sleep 7 people - queen sofa bed and twin sleeper chair in living room) the people who sleep in the living room have to walk through one of the bedrooms to get to a bathroom. There is no direct access from the living room to any bathroom. But as we ended up with only 4 people - it was not a problem. The kitchen was well stocked - even down to dish soap. If you want to experience a Keys vacation as it used to be.... this is the place to go. Forgot to mention - bring your boat! There is boat dockage right out in front. Definitely plan to go again!
