Please suggest the best place to stay for our family

Our family of five (3 kids - 10, 8 and 4) are visiting Florida Keys in May and really have no idea where the best place to stay would be. Perhaps Islamorada? If so, could someone please suggest the best place to stay for relaxation, beach and clean, modern accommodation. Do we need ac ar to get around or is transport available on the keys? Many thanks.

Yes, you need a car.

Look at some of the condo options: Mariners Club, Ocean Pointe, Tranquility Bay and see what appeals to you. KL and Islamorada are along a road from say, Mile marker 104 to MM 82. So you aren't far from the attractions in either depending on where you stay.

Take a look at Tranquility Bay - one of the few places with a beach. Also, Hawks Cay might work for you.

If you want to ditch the car, you'll need to stay in Key West.

Let us know what your budget is and we'll try to help. You can go from Cheeca Lodge, which is very pricey to Mom and Pop motels that are very reasonable.

There is currently a "deal of the day" offer from Cheeca Lodge, at the website SniqueAway. Still an investment, but at least not as crazy high pricing...
