The cottages are small, but cute and sufficient for a couple. We arrived late but there was no problem! You can park your vehicule right by your cottage and the location is very quiet. It's nothing special really, you have to take the car to the beach and restaurants, but it's a good place to stop for a quiet resting...

We stayed at Tropical Cottages for 1 night to break up the drive back from Key West to Ft. Lauderdale. Check-in was simple & we parked right next to the door of the cottage. The grounds seem nicely kept. The cottage that we stayed in was very basic, simple and clean. There was a lovely 4-poster, king-sized bed, a futon...

Arrived at noon and was allowed to check in early, the man at front desk was very pleasant, asked me about my day, where I came from and skewed genuine interest, told me about the tiki bar, the public hammocks, and grill on premises. The room is smaller than most, same with bathroom. All tile throughout, very clean, bathroom looks...

We stayed here once before in one of the actual cottages. Even though we had a problem with ants, the cottage was adorable. This time we were placed in the trailer at the end of the property. It was very old and falling apart. The shower was always clogged. The blinds were completely see through at night. The couch was...

It was so much fun, the cottages are decorated and designed to give you a feel of the 1950's. The Tiki bar was so much fun, the people are wonderful. It was so nice to be located close to Bahia Honda and only 50 minutes from Key West.

What a dump. 72% satisfaction rate? Really? I can't believe that these satisfaction ratings were written by people who stayed here. Bugs everywhere, not enough water pressure to take a shower, sheets on bed were torn and wrinkled, and could not flush toilet, crap stayed in the commode the whole time we were there. We actually used the housekeepers storage...

As soon as I checked into the room I found a fly buzzing around and was also stunned by the condition of the cottage. I don't know if my expectations were high about this cottage, but I had a very good experience when I previously stayed in one. Cottage looked like it definitely need some renovation. Bed was hard but...

My husband and I stayed for two nights during the middle of the week. Here are my observations: 1. The wall unit air conditioner was not strong enough to cool the room. Even on full blast, set to the coldest setting, the room would not cool down below 85 degrees during the day. It got cool enough at night, though....

We stayed in Cottage 4 for two nights last week. On the positive side, the room is spacious, kitchen is convenient with a refrigerator for beverages and also giving the room a more spacious feel. Bathroom is small but adequate. Water pressure and temperature were good. Bed was very comfortable. On the negative side the sheets did not fit the...
