I'll start with the pros, the grounds were well maintained, the pool was heated beautifully, the snorkeling lagoon was awesome, the boat ramp and dockage were easily accessible, the sunset view from the end of the pier was breathtaking, kids and I caught mangrove snapper and tarpon off the dock, rooms were just ok but clean, close to lots of restaurants and shops (which in the Keys is important), beautiful grill area with hammocks and shuffleboard by the pool with hibiscus flowers.........sounds lovely right?......... Then you have to talk to the management........oh my word these people are like mean drill sergeants!! From making the reservation, all the way to check out and 14 times in between they were rude! It's just such a shame because we live only an hour away and are in Islamorada regularly so one not so great stay doesn't ruin "The Keys" for us but if you are coming from Illinois and staying a week like our friends at the pool, I feel truly bad that our tourists are being treated this way!! Come on, we are there for fun and sun, not "condo commando" type management spoiling our time! Our bathroom sink was also broken as well as the lamp in the bedroom, the view from our "cottage" was of a concrete wall and trash. Has such potential to be a little tropical oasis behind the two units we had! You had to buy your ice.....and they only accepted cash. They charge $75 for a lost key, so hang onto it. No guests allowed, no pets. We counted down the minutes until 7 because that's when fun-suckers 1 and 2 left for the day! I reallllly hope the owners read this and take it into consideration! Staying at a very popular resort right up the road in 2 weeks, can't wait to compare! Email me and I'll tell you where! Aloha Kontki, tighten your ship!
