Romantic Key West

Member Rating 0 out of 5 by Mongoose on September 23, 2002

Best things to do: Choose a hotel on the ocean, enjoy the warm waters, relax with a drink in the very laid back (yet touristy) streets of Key West. And yes, the sunset is worth it, if only for the atmosphere.${QuickSuggestions} Fly there instead of driving from Miami (unless it's your first time on this scenic road), don't go to the hotels on Roosevelt Boulevard North (not very romantic there).${BestWay} A car is not necessary in Key West and can prove to be a bad choice, especially during busy time (also it will take you a lot of time back to Miami if you drove from there on a busy week end).

Bikes or scooters are available for rental, but scooters are not that cheap when you add up everything. Good place to rent: YMCA on the south shore (cheaper and same equipment)


Blue Parrot Inn

Your basic B and B, well located if not very close to Duval St. (the place where a lot of people go to). Nice trees and exotic ambiance, cute pool (but needs maintenance), cats on the premises, and nice breakfast. Nice management as well. Reasonably sized rooms with all you need. Views from rooms are not exciting.

La Mer

Nice hotel run Bed and Breakfast (it is NOT a family run bed and breakfast but looks like one). Very nice tropical rooms, very nice views on the ocean for some rooms, located on the beach, great pool next to it, nice little sandy beach and beach club. Professional service. Recommended and romantic. Fairly expensive.

Pier House Resort

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by Mongoose on September 23, 2002

Luxurious resort located in the center of the action in Key West, on the ocean (north shore of Key West). Giant balconies, view on the water and sunset (really worth it), private beach with nice white sand, several pools, relaxed but classy atmosphere, many restaurants. Rooms are average sized and decorated in a "light tropical" style. Recommended but pricey.

A&B Lobster House

Member Rating 3 out of 5 by Mongoose on September 24, 2002

The famous Key West lobster house delivers a moderately priced, casual lobster dining experience. The soups are tasty, the lobster perfectly cooked and the service competent. Views on the port are nice from the balcony. Centrally located, it feels/looks like a TGIF but with good food. Enjoy!

Michael's

Member Rating 2 out of 5 by Mongoose on September 24, 2002

Michael's came with great reviews and the famous flown-in USDA prime beef from Chicago. Overall it was good yet not outstanding. The presentation was good, but the taste not that refined. Drinks are expensive, though tempting. In summary, it ends up not delivering totally for a $120 bill for two with drinks. Location: off-downtown, quiet and classy.

Tip: Don't eat in the patio during hot weather. Mosquitoes will enjoy you for dinner OR the restaurant people will blow a huge noisy fan in your face and/or legs - not very romantic.
