We just returned from this lovely property, and can't wait to go back. We chose this hotel because it has a beach, which apparently is unusual in Key West. We felt it was quite reasonably priced for its water-front location. My husband specified that we wanted an "ocean FRONT" room, not just "ocean VIEW." I believe we were in the older section of hotel, but near the end, just a few yards from the ocean. The room was not huge or fancy, but clean and it had everything we needed. The view of the lawn with its nice landscaping, chairs and hammocks felt very relaxing and homey. The staff was exceptionally friendly, and everyone from the front desk staff to maintenance and housekeeping made sure we were comfortable. The property is very well kept and clean. We ate a lot of our meals at the cafe on the beach. We found the service to be quick and friendly and the food was always tasty, with some different twists on common favorites. The beach was small, but it was never too crowded and hotel staff brought creamsicles and frozen pineapple around on a regular basis. With the hotel right on the beach, comfy beach chairs, side tables and hotel towels were readily available. The concierge was knowledgeable about the area and available almost all waking hours. She helped us plan most of our outings and helped arrange transportation when we needed it. The location of the hotel is convenient and quiet. Overall, it was a wonderful vacation and we felt taken care of at this hotel.
