Like stepping back to the 50s but with all mod cons. The collection of wooden bungalows on a shale lane leading to the sea give this place a Motel feel but the colours, decor and manicured grounds ensure the place oozes Floridian character. We stayed in an ocean viewing bungalow which had its own kitchen. The bed was large and comfortable, the bathroom small but ok and the kitchenette had everything we needed when we stayed in and cooked. The Pool area was nice (although personally I would ditch the white wire fencing to give an uninterrupted view of the sea.) There is a nice pool bar with friendly staff and daily happy hour. The jetties offer a lovely place to sit and watch the nurse sharks swim by. We rented sea kayaks and went up the coastline one day which is highly recommended. We had considered chicca lodge and visited it on our kayak trip - chicca lodge is much more of a resort than pines and palms with numerous bars, a big pool, restaurant and expansive grounds, whereas pines and palms has a 'family run' feel which we much preferred. The only slight criticism I would have, and it is slight, is that you can hear the road a little bit from your veranda but islamorada is narrow and I bet you can hear it at all resorts - it also quitters down in the evening and during the day we were either at the beach or out so it didn't bother us at all. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend this place.
