Havana Cabana

Key West, Florida Keys

Virgin rating

The hotel

Life here couldn’t be simpler: swim, sunbathe, sip poolside cocktails, swim again. Havana Cabana Key West is a place to escape it all, although the fabulous concierge service will happily help arrange trips out to experience the rest of island life – whether it’s golf, beaches, or a bar crawl – if doing nothing does nothing for you. The unique spirit of Cuba is reflected at Havana Cabana, from the dining to the decor. The largest freshwater pool in Key West comes complete with a rock waterfall, a hot tub, and a Cuban-style pool bar serving suitably tropical cocktails.

The hotel is very cool with a great party soul :) The pool is charming and the rooms are very confortable. You need to take shuttle to the center but it is in every half hour and just 10 minutes. We had a very warm welcoming and were informed on all details by the great F.D. Team, special thanks to Chris G and Bianca. We felt like home!

Check in experience was great. Chris G and Jesse on the front desk team were amazing. They were friendly and attentive and answered all our questions. When they left it was a different experience. The internet went down in the middle of our stay because they were doing an upgrade. There were 2 different people on the front desk that told us to keep trying as it should be working. It wasn’t. They said it was working for them. Many guests were complaining the internet was down (because it was). Telling guests to keep trying and that it worked for them on their phones wasn’t very helpful. We didn’t have any internet from early afternoon until the following morning. Another worker at the resort who was fantastic was Nick at the pool. He was 10/10 helpful. He made sure to monitor chairs and make sure people weren’t ‘reserving’ chairs and was very attentive. He worked non stop all day doing clean up and attending to guests. Some of the chairs were in rough condition. He made sure to get us a couple of pillows so that the sagging wasn’t noticeable. Something to note is that the area is very humid so you need to keep the air conditioner cranked in the room to avoid humidity build up. As a result, the units kicked in a lot and were very loud. Just something worth noting in case you’re a light sleeper. The shuttle drivers were excellent and we used the shuttle both days to get into town. They were on time and very friendly. Read less

Great pool and a very convenient shuttle to/from the action in town. Chris G and Nat were very helpful on check in, and when we realized our son forgot his toothbrush. Great first impressions at the property. We are excited for the rest of our stay.

Perfect place inside and out. Rooms are very good size, very clean, pool is huge. The Havana cabana offers so many amenities such as pool side dj, free drinks, shuttle services, etc. You can’t go wrong staying here. The staff are outstanding, Chris G at the front desk took very good care of us. Will definitely be back!

We want to thank all the staff here they were great! Special thanks to Chris G, Aiko, Jesse, Nat, and the front end team. Our room was nice and clean, the pool beautiful, and the Flordita food truck had very good food. Can’t wait to come back. From the folks from 207.
