Enjoyed a brief two night stay at the Sands of Islamorada last weekend. We selected this resort based on favorable reviews and the mid keys location. We had 5 travelers in total, 3 adults and two kids and were very comfortable in room 11 which is a 2 queen suite with living room, dining area and kitchenette. We were pleasantly...

I just recommended Sands of Islamorada to a friend and was reminded of our excellent experiences there. We have stayed twice, once for our anniversary in February last year, and my birthday the following September. I actually booked the room for my birthday during checkout, I knew that that was exactly how I wanted to spend my birthday. Mercy and...

We checked in Sunday Feb 5, checked out Wednesday Feb 8. We just loved this cute little clean hotel with a dock for boating and watching the sunrise. When our plane was delayed, the manager called me and told me where to find the key when we arrived. On Tuesday morning I went to the office to inquire about renting...

We stayed as a couple 4 nights booked on hotels.com. The listing was inaccurate since it confirmed a king but our large room had 2 doubles plus fridge+microwave. The room was spotless, the beds comfortable and the hotel is generally well-maintained. Fridge is a good size. No separate kitchen sink; dishes (which you must request) were washed in the bathroom...

Very friendly & welcoming staff - great location to watch the sunrise right on the oceanfront. Immaculately clean and spacious accommodation with comfortable bed and great shower etc. We had our own porch with chairs and a hammock with great sea view. The facilities were also top notch with a hot tub and swimming pool plus a nice jetty to...

We stayed at this hotel for one night. The room itself was a decent size with a refrigerator/freezer and microwave. It had a little bit of a musty smell but all in all it was clean. Unfortunately, the air-conditioner sounded like a jet engine when it was running and we couldn't sleep with it on. We tried using the fan...

We had a great stay here..very clean room and the area was very well maintained. Small refrigerator and AC in the room worked out nicely. Kind of a retro feel to the whole place. Staff was very pleasant as well.

My husband and I stayed at Sands for 4 nights. We were upgraded to Room 18 that had a beautiful porch with a hammock, chairs and a table where we really enjoyed having breakfast every morning and watching unbelievably beautiful sunsets. The room was functional and clean, not fancy but very cute and charming! The owner of the place was...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An awesome, intimate escape right in the center of the Keys. All of our rooms have recently been refreshed from top to bottom. For a pet & people friendly tropical retreat...This is the spot. This is the kind of place Jimmy Buffett sings about. We are very Keysee and very clean! A sparkling pool and hot-tub with a view of the beach, boat launch and pier, await you. Our rooms and efficiencies can accomodate from 1 to 6 people very comfortably. ... more   less
