We stayed in the Lagoon cottage for 5 days, the cottage was lovely. It was very clean & well furnished, with a large lounge area with two settee plus a dining room. There was a big kitchen & breakfast table. Two bedrooms & one bathroom with shower.
The resort was lovely & clean with beautiful views. The swimming pool area was lovely & clean too. The breakfast was included in the price & served in the room near the office. There was fresh orange juice, coffee & teas. Donuts , fresh fruits, cereals, jam ,peanut butter & the bread was gorgeous, which you could toast.
You would find it hard to fault this resort.

We booked this quiet resort on the basis of reading other Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed.

The reception staff were very friendly and welcoming.
Our room was big, with a huge bathroom and was very clean and well decorated.

The buffet breakfast was adequate.

Watching the sunrise from the water's edge was brilliant.

Palmer's Resort is the best kept secret in the Keys. Located on Little Torch Key which is below Big Pine Key. The motel is right on the water and if you have a boat there are docks for your use. Picnic tables, hammocks, breakfast is included, and bar-b-que grills for your use is also available. The grounds are beautiful and kept up daily. There is a pool which is very clean. The rooms are quaint and also very clean. I could definitely spend a week there. It is close to excellent restaurants and many dive shops in the area. You can even walk down the neighborhood street to a local tiki sports bar. Spend the night or a week you won't regret it. Ask for a room facing the water.

Room Tip: Get a water-front view

So we usually stay at big, established, often commercial resorts when we look for a Florida beach or Orlando vacation. Friends of our recommended the Parmer's Resort as it was near their beach house on Little Palm Island. When we arrived we were surprised to not find a well done landscape, valets, etc. But the charm of the place hit us immediately. It was an kitschy, old Florida kind of charm. Essentially from what I can tell you is that you have an number of older houses or cabins that have been retrofitted in 1-5 or more units. Felt like there were 10 or more buildings, more or less all around a central pool and right on the water. All the units have a nautical name. We were in a unit called the "permit". My wife and I were in one room and our two kids where in the other. It was separated by a hallway and bath. The room configuration was rather odd. For instance our room had the only sink and it was a room away from the toilet and shower. The other room had the TV. Both had queen size beds. All that said, we really enjoyed our stay there. There is a free breakfast everyone morning and we took advantage of that. Also everything was extremely CLEAN. It could have been a Ritz Carlton it was so clean. They do not offer maid service apparently as I was told to just come over to get more towels as they 'did not want to disturb us' by making the bed, changing towels etc. The location was great. Very convenient and not too far from Key West (about 45 min drive or 20 miles). Go eat at Boondocks in Ramrod Key next door too. In summary: We'll be back. You should go.

A very nice clean room above reception. Greeted by very attentive and friendly staff. Lovely pool and grounds for relaxing in the evening. Breakfast buffet was okay (good fresh fruit) but limited selection of cereals and jams (only strawberry). Has a quiet atmosphere and traditional feel.

We stayed at this much improved slice of perfection for 16 days! The last time i was here was 25 years ago to visit my old haunt of Key West again without the trappings of staying in town. I could not believe how much this little resort has improved under the Magic Wand of the new owners Jay and Sandy!! The Grounds are exquisite, the pool is crystal clear and well positioned, staff treats you as if you were old friends, they are fun, friendly and really on top of their game!! Into our second week I actually fantasized of never leaving, but all nice dreams have to come to an end. If you are prone to daydreaming nice pleasant things, and of laid back tropical fantasies come let the dream weavers of Parmers lay the foundation of a perfect Utopian keys vision! Sincerely, Jimmy & Sue

Room Tip: none of you are allowed in my room!!!!! lol! LOL
