Havana Cabana

Key West, Florida Keys

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.

Where to begin… this is probably one of the worst hotels I’ve stayed in. The room was nice and clean but the staff are some of the most rude, inept people I’ve come across.

Where to begin… this is probably one of the worst hotels I’ve stayed in. The room was nice and clean but the staff are some of the most rude, inept people I’ve come across. The thing to really know is that they are going to charge you $60 a day on top of what you already paid as “resort fee.” This place is not a resort, it’s a small hotel with a pool. Trying to get a clean bath towel from the staff was like asking for the first born child. Spend your hard earned money elsewhere. They need to fire the whole staff, awful service. Read less

We stayed for 5 nights in late September 2021. We were in the main building with a pool room view which had a small balcony to eat breakfast on. The pool is the highlight of the hotel and I would recommend staying here if you can take at least one day to enjoy it. If you don’t plan to use the pool, you may want to stay closer to the heart of downtown key west. For the most part, getting downtown was a quick trip but the shuttle schedule was inconsistent during our stay, likely due to staffing shortage, so we did have spend money on a view Lyft rides which was disappointing since we were paying for the shuttle in the nightly resort fee cost. The staff were friendly and the food truck menu, while limited, was delicious. Overall, we had a great experience. Read less

Everyone was so friendly. So many unexpected experiences and new friends. Loved every moment of it. The bartenders were great, and everyone took good care of us. The shuttle drops you right off at Conch Republic, which we highly recommend!!
