From the moment we walked into the lobby we were greeting by the warm & welcoming staff. The lobby is absolutely gorgeous. The rooms are clean and very comfortable. You have a refrigerator and microwave. The pool and beach area are extremely well maintained and beautiful. The restaurant The Reel burger has delicious food!!! Highly recommend this hotel!!

Restaurant and bar staff were friendly and attentive. Burger was excellent. Love being able to choose between pool and beach

Beach area at sunrise and pool were great. Room was nice but needs a ceiling fan and also had a funky smell to it kinda musty or something location is down on south end of island with resort fee of 30 bucks a night got free bike rental which was nice for riding around

Beautiful hotel with a nice beach and large pool. We were only there one night but it's the kind of place that would be fun for a family for much longer. It has ping pong, corn hole and fire pits, too. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Such a perfect spot in a sleepy town! Grounds were perfect

Theres no ambiance in the pool area, no island music,could hardly hear the music in the pool.theres no manament involment in the entertainment aspect. This was our third time staying there and my wife and i have concluded that it also will be the last

I was a little surprised that there wasn't any information in the Room about dining in the hotel. Initially when we arrived I asked at the desk if there was a café available and they said no. The dining room is only open for breakfast and dinner. Each time we walked by the dining room it was empty. (6:00 PM, 7:30 PM and at check-out in the morning,) Not a very good recommendation. It didn't appear to have room service. Pool area is wonderful and the Tiki Bar at the pool was very nice. Overall it was a pretty good experience.

Service was excellent Facilities very good....over all very comfortable

This is a beautiful property right on the ocean in Islamorada, FL. All the staff went out of their way to greet and welcome us. The pool is lovely as well as the hammocks under the palm trees. The room was spacious and spotless. We will definitely book a room there again!

It is a beautiful property with lots to offer. The staff was amazing too.

This resort was awesome! The staff were super friendly from the minute we walked in. We brought our dog with us for Memorial Day weekend and the hotel was very dog friendly. They let us bring him to the beach and hang out under the tiki bar. The resort was sold out for the holiday weekend but the hotel never felt crowded. The beach was still relaxing, never a shortage of chairs. Overall loved this place and can’t wait to go back!

only one bottle of water.i guess that cost me $ 39.00.

Friendly staff, nice restaurant with great views of ocean. No real beach, but access to the water. Tiki bar with food. Enjoyed our stay.

Enjoyed the tiki bar and pool area. Hotel cleaning staff was less than desirable. Delayed ‘daily’ cleaning, lack of towels for number of room guests this had to ask daily for needed number of towels.

Tiki bar by the pool perfect setting. Housekeeping did not come daily , Ice machines not available on every floor. Restaurant short staffed and parking was very limited . Overall an okay place to stay, good location 2.5 miles from Robbie’s Marina and 4 miles from Lorelie’s ! The gift shop attendant gave great suggestions for local food. 🌟🌟🌟

Beautiful place. Staff very friendly. Pool and beach area is very nice also.

The property is beautiful, and the pool is perfect!
