“GREAT PLACE”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

We have been going to Parmer's Resort for 22+ years when it was known as Parmer's Place and Mr. Parmer ran it. He sold it many years ago and while there were some changes made the new owners have maintained the ambiance of this quiet, clean, serene place it always was. Some of the changes couldn't be helped as they were a result of a Hurricane . I do miss the birds that Mr.Parmer had around the resort. The contnental breakfast dosen't have all the choices it once did, this resort is just a wonderful place to unwind at. Close to Bahia Honda State Park a most beautiful beach and the pool is always heated. Most of all while not very fancy this resort is so clean, comfortable and old Keys in style it is one of our favorite places to vacation. When our sons were young they loved it. The views of the water are amazeing.

We stayed in the Sailfish room which was a one bedroom room with a kitchen. The view was pretty, we loved watching the sun come up, the staff was very friendly and helpful, pool was nice, and it was a quiet area which made for a good nights sleep. We would stay here again if and when we ever make it back to the Keys.

Parmers was just what we had in mind. Since we came by boat, we had to have the dock and we were surprised to find we were the only boat there. They were doing some much needed repairs on the dock which is appreciated.
We stayed in pelican, a 2 bedroom cottage right on the water with a kitchen and a nice waterfront porch. We also stayed in Wahoo a 1 bedroom with kitchen and small living area and a waterfront porch.
Both were nice units. Very simple furnishings and minimalist decor, but clean and functional.
We will come again by boat and stay.

Spent about a week a Parmer's , our first time in the lower cays and our first time at Parmer's. We had the Marlin room in the main building. The room was as clean as any and at any price, but don't expect the WOW factor. Tiled floor and the shower was huge with plenty of hot water. No one comes in and cleans your room when you want clean towels just bring the used towels and pick up new ones at the office. No beach but a great heated kidney shaped pool. A nice breakfast is included...fruit, coffee, toast, english muffins, donuts, milk, juice. Some nice restaurants not far and just up the street major drug stores for shampoo and all that. The location is very quiet so you will get a good nights sleep. Nothing in the keys is cheep everything comes in and out on that small ribbon of a road (US 1). Also don't rush and try not to come or out on a weekend.. the traffic ( only a few places to pass slow cars or trucks) is heavy.

Just spent a week there in Feb. and it was awesome. The room was clean and so were the grounds that surrounded it. The staff was very friendly and made us feel at home. Looking forward to going back next year, will probably get a bigger room next time with a kitchen. We stayed in the Rose room that was perfect for what we needed, just needed a place to sleep. We would hang out on the deck in the evening and plan our next day adventure. Beautiful sunrises every morning with lot's of places to view it from. The pool was immaculate and warm. The continental breakfast was fresh and a good start to our morning. Have already recommended it to our friends and family. See you next year !

What a marvelous hotel. From the minute I entered the hotel grounds, it was clear that everything was spotless and neat as a pin. The grounds were beautiful and clean. The hotel room was spotless. We had a room with two double beds and our linens were very very high quality. The bed was a joy to sleep in, such a comfortable mattress.
The room was very clean. In the bath, the shower pressure was wonderful. The room had a small refrigerator and a microwave: both looked new. They did not have daily maid service unless requested. This was fine with me, I find it intrusive and expensive (since I always feel compelled to tip for maid service). Drove down to Key West for the evening, 30 minutes or so away. Took full advantage of the hammocks swaying at various locations around the hotel. Was disappointed when I found someone in the first hammock I saw- then I realized there were several more peppered around the property. There are also heavenly Adirondack chairs all over the place, calling your name. And you can sit at the ocean in one if these chairs with something to read and read nothing at all because you are mesmerized by the pelicans flying to and fro, back and forth.
A lovely place, marvelous experience.
