What an oasis!

This hotel was fabulous! We dodged Hurricane Ike and were some of the first tourists allowed on the island afterward. We lucked out and got this suite for an affordable price as a result. Jackpot! It was beautiful and perfect for us. We were two couples and having the two separate rooms, with a common living room and kitchen worked out wonderfully for us. Modern appliances, furnishings, and bathroom fixtures were lovely. We couldn't have asked for a better place to enjoy Key West. We still talk about it.

Wedding destination getaway

The staff was fantastic and friendly. The service and extra amenities were great...free smoothies, free sunscreen availability poolside, the muffins, etc. My only complaint is that our room was upstairs and much smaller than the room downstairs. There was hardly any space between the bedroom and bed placement and any room in the bathroom. Our friends downstairs room was 4 times more spacious.

Great location, staff lacking

Overall the experience was fine- I'm very happy with the location of the hotel, but was annoyed by the front desk clerk, who seemed strangely happy to let me know about additional fees that I would be paying-- I'm not going to be staying there again.
