Marina and Florida Keys accommodations on a lively beachfront

The Holiday Isle Resorts & Marina offers the classic Florida Keys experience of cocktails and marina life with great views across the ocean. With a busy beachfront, outdoor tiki bar and a thriving marina right next door, guests can take advantage of everything that the Florida Keys has to offer. There are great marine life venues such as the Theater of the Sea for seeing stingrays and dolphins, and a private sandy beach and free Internet access are the icing on the cake. There are four restaurants in the Holiday Isle Resorts & Marina compound.

3 Reasons To Stay
  • A range of accommodations with pool, ocean and harbor views
  • Open-air tiki bar for great cocktails
  • Right beside a popular marina
Holiday Isle Resorts & Marina Rooms

Guests at the Holiday Isle Resorts & Marina are in for a real Florida Keys welcome, with a great range of accommodations to choose from to use as a base for exploring this unique part of sunny Florida. There are 151 cottages, rooms and suites spread over this sizeable area of tropical gardens, and many of them have views of the harbor, pool or ocean. Cable TV, a coffee-maker, air conditioning and a hair-dryer come as standard, and all bedrooms have balconies and a combination of king, queen and single beds to choose from. TV in the rooms comes with cable channels. Combinations of showers and tubs in the en suite bathrooms are ideal for freshening up, and housekeeping is also provided, with wake-up calls for guests who have to rush. The rooms can be accessed via convenient external corridors at the Holiday Isle Resorts & Marina.

Features

While Holiday Isle Resort and Marina manages basic rooms, for water sports lovers, the location, facilities and activities offered here make this resort a veritable Florida Keys Mecca. Six lively beach bars spread across the property include the massive and famous Tiki Bar, waterfront Rumrunners and Floaters, the pool bar. Guests can rent chaise lounges along the private sandy beach, and the on-site marina offers a full-range of sport fishing, diving and snorkeling charters. Holiday Isle Resort and Marina also has free parking, two swimming pools and three restaurants--including a raw bar on the beach.

Bad experience.

This hotel has beautiful grounds that are well maintained. The pool and beach area cannot be beat. However, we booked a standard king room and it was not good. The bathtub faucet was hanging out of the wall with a hole all the way around it. The tub surface was coming off around the faucet area. The curtain hanging from the closet had a big rip in it. One of the lights above the vanity was burned out. Neither the alarm clock or coffee maker worked. The worst part of it all was the musty, mildew smell.

Weekend Getaway

The location for this hotel is great! There is the world famous Tiki Bar onsite and a few bars and restaraunts within a few dollar cab ride. The rooms have been upgraded recently and I will definitely stay at this hotel again next time I hit the Keys

great couple getaway

Loved the Tiki Bar... (Amber & Vince were awesome behind the bar!), was a Bit upset that the other bar RumRunners featured on site was closed for renovations since there was no mention of this when we booked our trip. However the views are amazing, staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Overall a laid back cottage feel to the resort, not upscale and snooty. Would have loved amenities such as room service but plenty of great food within walking distance on location.

Great experience!

Stayed here for our honeymoon and loved it! Very private beach and hotel. Heated pool was great. A lot of on sight amenities such as water sports and bars so that you do not have to travel far. Great views from our hotel balcony! Our only complaint was a lack of beer selection at the bars. My husband and I love dark beer and there were not any dark beers available for selection. Also, the drinks were a bit overpriced. Snorkeling next to the hotel was more expensive than in other areas of the island, however there are a lot of choices available nearby, so that was not a huge complaint.

Recommend snorkeling at other areas on the island or on marathon as it is a better deal.

Very close to activities, we did an hour jet ski tour with Hector at A1A watersports! That was awesome and we did the swim with the dolphins at Theater of the Sea, also awesome! The hotel was very nice, the beach extended all the way to our door!
