An unbeatable location in the Keys right on a private beach (Atlantic side). We had a second floor (third to the Americans) room looking out to sea. The rooms don't have balconies as such - just chairs and a small table on the walkway across the front of the rooms - so not that private, but people weren't back and...

Very nice modern waterfront room with beautiful view, relaxing, convenient to onsite bar and restaurant. Comfortable beach lounges next to umbrellas, really nice pool and spa, cold bottled water for sitting on the beach or by the pool. Manatees swam by every afternoon, and (for good or bad) a Portuguese man-of-war washed up on shore - beautiful color. Close to...

Room very clean and just right and cozy for two. Only complaint was the water edge has lots of shells and rocks and we didn't have ocean shoes which are needed if you want to go into the ocean. Would definitely go back.

Hello and thank you so much for your comments. Sorry about the shells, they do tend to wash up on the beach from time to time. Other than that we're happy to hear that you will be returning again in the near future and we look forward to having you back.

We booked this last minute and found a gem! We stayed in a ocean front King suite with a beautiful view. Everything looked recently updated including granite countertop in the kitchen and the entire room was very clean. It did have a nice big shower but lacked a tub, which was ok for our short stay.

The location of the hotel is great. Its somewhat in the middle of the Keys, very well located to get to different places. Our room was almost perfect. We were in an accessible suite that didn't have a full shower, very awkward. The other minor issue was the sliding screen that goes right to the beach. Was told they were...
