Reviewed December 27, 2013

The photo of the cottages on the site is false. There is only one like that. Ours didn't even have a sliding glass door. They said "we'll, this is a 57 yr old resort!" Like I was the idiot. I asked "then why did you only show the updated cottage online?" They were out of cereal and yogurt at breakfast. That left bagels, milk, juice and coffee. They were out of towels for the pool at 10:30am. Again, new front desk person basically calling me an idiot because "they are in the wash!" There is a sign that they charge $5 to wash your dishes. There is nothing to wash them with! again, went to front to ask for that. 18 hrs and waiting for a dish rag to appear! The grounds are beautiful and the rooms are clean. Towels are hand size, beach & bath. They

What a nice place. It is an older complex but well maintained. Our suite included a living room and large kitchen with dining area, lots of space. The grounds were beautiful. There were several workers outside keeping it spotless. The pool area was so beautiful we did not want to leave. The view was great. Breakfast was good, lots of carbs. The staff was very nice.

I stayed in room 204 with an oceanfront balcony. The 1 bedroom suite was spacious, but a little old looking, I got over that very quickly!!! Sitting on the balcony with a good book and a glass of wine after a long day of fishing was perfect. We stopped at Islamorada Fish Company and brought home shrimp and stone crabs and made dinner in the room. The hot tub was good and the heated pool felt great. Every staff member was friendly and helpful. Guests staying there were enjoying the cottages, grilling outside, and kayaks offered right at the beach. Breakfast was served by the pool in the morning.

Room Tip: I think next time I may ask for a cottage - they look very cute.

We were looking for a little place on the water to hole up for a few days - a little honeymoon between business stops on our way to the Dry Tortugas. La Siesta was the perfect stop - the grounds were beautiful, the staff was nice and helpful and the little cabana on the water was perfect. We could leave the world behind and retire in that little cabana and be the two happiest people on the planet. Thank you La Siesta!

Room Tip: Stay in the cabanas on the beach - while the rooms are lovely too, folks kept coming by seeing us ou...

This is exactly the type of hotel we were looking for on our vacation, a nice rustic laid back place. If you are looking for glitz and glamour, keep driving, but if you are expecting classic old Florida charm, this is your place. From our initial call to verify our reservation, to check in and hospitality during our stay it was top notch. We were allowed to check in very early, 10 AM, and given several suggestions for things to do and see. The pool in heated and feels great on these cool days. We used a groupon and get a room very close to the water and was much bigger than we expected. We only booked 2 days and will be sorry to leave then and wish we booked more. We will certainly be back!

We had a wonderful experience at La Siesta. We stayed in a one bedroom suite with full kitchen and living room for a week. Every morning we would go to the pool for the complimentary breakfast and coffee and spend some time in the pool or hot tub, or just sitting out on the dock overlooking the ocean and watching the little tropical fish beneath us. It had a very small/quaint resort feel, and the staff couldn't be friendlier. We took the kayaks out on the water and rented fishing poles, which were all complimentary. We couldn't have asked for a more relaxing vacation!

Room Tip: We stayed in a small bungalow that was not on the water, which was very nice, but next time we will...
