Room itself was great was an amazing view of the harbour. Only thing I would say it that the next doors aircon blows out directly on to your balcony so if they have it on, you get hot! Other than that a great stay in a great location. Breakfast was great and Charlene was lovely. Would go back again to this hotel if ever in key largo (which itself is stunning). Oh there are also loads of iguanas kicking around which was cool! Read less

We stayed here one night and upon check in we noticed, how unfriendly the receptionists were (and trying to avoid working). We went into our room and it smelled really bad. After calling to ask for someone to check it, we went out. As we returned we asked, whether they checked our room and the receptionist seemed offended ("I do not check the rooms!"). Our room still smelled bad and after calling again, we could change the room to the ground floor. It smelled nice and clean. The pool area and Tiki Bar is fantastic and we went to Doc's Diner across the street. If the staff had been more friendly and accomodating, my rating would have been better. Read less

Great location, especially if you are looking for a snorkeling or scuba diving excursion. I got to see the African Queen in the nearby docks. There is an offsite restaurant behind their restaurant as well. The pool and the restaurants had live music which was really nice. Beautiful pools and helpful friendly staff.

We asked about checking in around 1pm when we arrived in Key Largo and they offered 2nd floor, but we did not want to haul luggage up stairs, so we said we would wait. We ate a late lunch and came back around 230pm and asked if a room was ready yet on 1st and was told no - we needed to wait until 3pm. I decided to sit and use business center… Read more
We asked about checking in around 1pm when we arrived in Key Largo and they offered 2nd floor, but we did not want to haul luggage up stairs, so we said we would wait. We ate a late lunch and came back around 230pm and asked if a room was ready yet on 1st and was told no - we needed to wait until 3pm. I decided to sit and use business center since we were trying to find a fishing trip that had space. The business center is located in the lobby within very easy viewing from front desk. At exactly 3pm I went up and had to ask again about getting a room to check into. The room was nice, but dated. The sofa in room had very large worn patches in the cushions. Mattress WAS comfortable! Because we had to leave at the crack of dawn for fishing, we did not have the opportunity to check out the pool or more of the area. :( Read less

Room very clean not antiquated and shower was clean with fairly good strength. Yes air conditioning was loud but to be expected. King Bed was delightful. Left at 9 30am and from what I saw Property was very nice and well groomed and pool areas were very nice. Totally recommend. Read less
