Great place to stay

Really enjoyed the hotel and the location. It is within walking distance to everything without being in a hectic part of town. The pool and beach amenities were outstanding with multiple activities available. The room could have been a little bit cooler. The A/C didn't circulate as well as we would prefer. The food is a bit pricey, but good. The staff members are friendly and helpful.

Nice but not as expected

The hotel is located in a nice location. You can pretty much walk to any local attractions. However, the swimming pool is smaller than the size on picture and the private beach is small too.

Pampered

My husband and I and our five-year-old daughter stayed here during spring break and overall really enjoyed the stay. We certainly felt pampered with the attentive staff and pool/beach "boys" who quickly set up your chairs and towels and umbrella on the beach or pool. Fruit, popsicles, and even sunglasses cleaning were offered throughout the day. They also had fun little organized activities for the kids - 1 in morning and 1 in afternoon. They came around with menus so that you could order your lunch. The food was fabulous -- generous breakfast buffet with all kinds of offerings and a delicious menu of offerings for dinner at the Strip House (the in-house restaurant). One didn't really need to leave the hotel to have a super time -- it was completely relaxing. A few CONS: (1) It would be nice if the hotel could offer blocks of rooms that are non-smoking. We couldn't really enjoy our balcony as we had puffers on either side of us. (2) The room was quite small but very comfortable. Better lighting would have helped, such as a reading lamp beside the lounger. (3) What is the appeal of jet skis? Several times during the day, the hotel's horde of jet skis would be ushered from the beach to the surf where riders learned how to run them. They were noisy and smelled just awful, which certainly spoiled things for people on the beach. Despite the cons, I would return. Overall, it was quite lovely and we felt well-taken care of. The natural beach at The Reach is quite beautiful and that's hard to find in Key West.

Sign up with Fury Adventures to take one of their boat trips. We did the half-day Island Adventure and it was loads of fun and well worth the extra $$$.

Amazing location

One block from Duvall St and with its own private beach...it doesn't get any better than that! The room was nice and spacious too, especially the bathroom.

NIGHTMARE

They advertise as Pet friendly and THEY ARE NOT. Derick was like a prison guard who actually got us thrown out of the hotel because our dog was sleeping on our chair on the beach. We had to pay for three nights at the Banana Bay Resort which is extremely pet friendly. My dog is extremely well behaved and is not yappy. She weighs 7 lbs. What jerks they are!!! DO NOT RECOMMEND at all. They had the police come escort us off the property and threaten us! Very embarrassing.

AMAZING Gem in Key West!

A fantastic hotel, right on the beach, with clean sands, marvelous water, and the best service you can get! Staff was outstanding, food is awesome, prices are very reasonable, and many gestures (like free ice cream or frozen margaritas for people around the pool and the beach), made it even better. GREAT LOCATION, very close to Duval St. and all its restaurants and night life. Fantastic venue to be with family and kids, or with spouse/partner, or with friends.
