The property was probably the best property on the Keys. It felt very exclusive and safe. My only concerns were 3 very small but frustrating items: 1. No microwave in the room 2. 5 pools but 4 of them would get locked up at about 7pm 3. No beach really. July - tiny beach area was full of smelly seaweed and very slimy past the seaweed - couldn't walk in the water.

The shallow water at the property's beach needed to be cleaned up - racked for seaweed. It was overgrown and brown all 4 days we were there. No ladies would enter water. One evening at the restaurant for dinner, we assumed open seating as there were no reserved placards on tables, nor staff member to seat us. Experienced a needless awkward situation as we were "told" that the table was reserved and to move by an crass wait staff member. This resort should place families with small children in one area, and couples in another for a more restful, quiet experience you are paying for at this high end resort. Either that, or place "quiet" signs in the family rooms for the parents to adhere to and control their children. Last point - we were there 4 days and the room was cleaned only once. Had to call/text for clean towels...really? The topper was one evening at 8:30 pm the cleaning service was vacuuming the carpeted floor above us. Unbelievable. That's motel standard. Poorly managed.

Great resort spot! Plenty to do on site plus oceanfront room and beach access. Great staff, excellent customer service. Rooms are pretty techs, with usb charging and mirror screen/casting options. Food/beverage credit of $45. Safe and quiet...definitely coming back.

This place is AMAZING! They have great customer service. Keep in mind that there are some fees you’ll have to pay like parking.. etc... you MUST GET THE FIRST FLOOR! call in advance and ask for it and they’ll accommodate you. I had such a great experience. I already recommended my family to stay there for a couple nights. Also, the restaurants there are a little pricey so keep that in mind. When the lights go on at night time it is sooo beautiful!

This was the most beautiful resort we have ever stayed at. The pictures and website don’t even do it justice. We were actually sad we mad so many plans off site of the resort cause it was so good we didn’t even want to leave. You have to stay here!! The atmosphere is incredible. Like no paradise I’ve ever seen.

Hotel double charged me for my entire stay and gave me no receipt

Very Clean, Very new and well appointed. Friendly quick service and prime views.

excellent service

Needed nicer beach area. Needs hot tub. Seats gone quickly at pool. Beach towels are ok. Don’t like paying $10 a day to park. Can’t check out on tv. $25 per hour for late check out Loved veranda. Good shower. Nice pool bar.

The property was gorgeous! The room was gorgeous! The view was gorgeous! But, if you had to ask for something from the front desk, you never got it. The refrigerator was so small that only a few bottles of water would fit. No microwave or daily service for clean glasses.

Very relaxing place to be. Veranda on the beach with Ocean view was fantastic. Staff was very welcoming and attentive. Gated property felt private. Wish we planned to stay another day!

Housekeeping did not replace complementary water bottles. After cleaning bathroom did not replaced used towel or bathmat required me to use a towel. In my opinion there is insufficient number of handicapped parking spaces require me to walk long distance to get to my room. Additionally access points from the parking lot should be more strategically located to allow access from the parking lot to the elevators. This is the only time I have ever had to ask for my bill in all my years of travel. Furthermore the person I spoke to inferred I was an idiot because I couldn't located on the television screen. Then realized that there was something wrong with the unit. I had to drive to reception to get a copy of my bill.

Great views and condition of property. Rooms were amazing and quiet. Food and drinks were a little expensive but quality was excellent.

This resort has Lovely grounds and rooms. The room are very quiet and I love the covered decks off each room

The hotel is great. Very nice staff. Do rent your bikes early :)

Nice and quiet hotel with private pool and great restaurant. A shame to have to pay the parking $20 without Valet, it should be free. The rest perfect
