A lot of money has been spent here refurbishing the property. The rooms are large and comfortable with a great boutique hotel feel about them. Though oddly the bathrooms gave a cheap finish letting the whole look down The facilities are top notch too along with the beautiful location.

It should be a relaxing place to stay and that expectation needs to be set the very first moment you walk in and at the front desk. Instead of being welcomed we were told there was a problem with our booking (despite reconfirming over email the previous week) and there was an enormous amount of huffing and puffing. It wasn't a relaxing or welcoming start by any stretch of the imagination. Check out was equally brusque.

If this property really does want to set itself apart then it needs to improve the quality of customer service quickly.

Stayed last Saturday. The bar outside by the pool was great! Bartender Kim gave us amazing service! She created special drinks for us and we were never without a drink in our hands. She was great company and gave us a day/night to remember. Thank you Kim! You are the best!

The resort is older, but the rooms were remodeled recently. Our room was nice and clean with a comfy bed and large flat screen tv. There are a couple of small beach areas, which were all nice. Most of the coastline is rocky, which is normal for the keys. We went to the Tiki bar on the resort a few times for drinks. The "famous" rum runner was nasty, not sure if it was supposed to taste that way. The coladas were great. The last time we went to the Tiki bar on Sunday afternoon, a female bartender waited on us. We ordered 2 $8.50 cocktails, she told us that the total was $17.00 - but when we told her that we wanted to charge it to our room, she changed it in the system and out receipt printed out for $21.00. The other bartenders on Friday and Saturday were nice, not sure what her problem was. Shula Burger was fantastic! We ate there every day and tried several different items. The burger, chicken sandwich and fish sandwich were all very good and the french fries were fantastic! Bartender at Shula Burger was very nice. We ventured out for a few meals and found a couple of great breakfast places - Green Turtle Inn and Mangrove Mikes.

We stayed here for one nigh post cruise after purchasing the room on Hotwire for a good rate. The property is very nice, clean and well manicured. There is a nice pool and small beach, although to me the beach area is better for water sports than actual swimming. Lots of options for eating on the property, we really enjoyed Shula Burgers. Several nice bars. We enjoyed looking at the power boats that were in the marina from a race the day before. We couldn't check in unitl about 4pm because of a large number of checkouts but the desk employees were very nice. The rooms were clean and nice enough but the a/c didn't really keep the room very cool. We asked for a fan but they didn't have one. I would be a little worried about staying here in the heat of the summer. The locks on the doors into the building were all broken so you didn't have to swipe your card to get in. This might make some people feel a little unsafe because the buildings are all dettached from one another. Overall not a bad place for the money. It does seem to me to be geared toward the party crowd because there are more bars than anything else on the property.

Room Tip: The a/c in our 2 rooms in Building 3 was not very good. It didn't keep the room cool.
