Banyan Resort

Hotel | "The Banyon"

Quote:
The Banyon is a centrally located resort only a block away from the busiest tourist street in Key West. The Banyon boasts tons of botanical gardens surrounding it and an oh-so-beautiful pool and tiki bar. Their garden and tiki bar look like they are set within a rainforest, with all the trees and flowers and waterfalls. The rooms are spacious, open, and airy, with a nice Caribbean feel. Our suite was a two-bedroom, one-bath, with its own veranda looking toward the water. It was very clean, with an attentive staff. The Banyon even had a lady whom they called to take us down to the beach and take our pictures--yes, we have professional honeymoon pictures!! You need professional pics so you don't ...Read More

Hogs Breath Saloon

Restaurant | "Hog's Breath Saloon"

What a fun restaurant! We ate here and will never forget it! The food is delish and served in big helpings! The staff is fun and friendly, and the name is synonymous with the personality of the restaurant--quirky and fun! They also had a big gift shop where you can purchase Hog's Breath clothing and keepsakes. I went "hog wild" there! 'Hog's Breath is better than no breath at all' is their slogan. Ha! I love it!

If you are trying to find a beach vacation where you will lounge on the beach all day, Key West is not for you. The beaches are nothing, really--nice to go and view, but there's not much sand. They are rockier and smaller than usual. But the water offers a lot of adventure, such as swimming with the dolphins, snorkeling, scuba diving, and so on. There's not so much beach, but there's still tons of adventure and fun! I did see a lot of people getting married along the edge of the beach, so I imagine that would be a nice experience especially at sunset. It is the southernmost point of the USA, so I think it would be neat to be married there.
