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.

Great stay here. The hotel is perfectly branded throughout and the staff is attentive not pushy. The pool had to be the best in the area. The hotel is even cuter at night! However, be prepared, the food and drinks are VERY expensive and over priced. It is a shame this is the case because I think the staff would gain more in tips if you the food… Read more

However, be prepared, the food and drinks are VERY expensive and over priced. It is a shame this is the case because I think the staff would gain more in tips if you the food and beverages were regular price. There is also a daily resort fee, but parking was free. I would stay here again. The staff is really great and the hotel is a true oasis escape. Read less

I booked two nights. Stayed for one, paid for two. I intended to relax by the gorgeous pool and looked forward to good Cuban and West Indian food from the food truck. But no. The speakers are set to 85 decibels ALL DAY LONG. 85.01 is officially damaging to your hearing. Why do that in a beautiful space where people want to relax? Rooms are… Read more
I booked two nights. Stayed for one, paid for two. I intended to relax by the gorgeous pool and looked forward to good Cuban and West Indian food from the food truck. But no. The speakers are set to 85 decibels ALL DAY LONG. 85.01 is officially damaging to your hearing. Why do that in a beautiful space where people want to relax? Rooms are small but nice. If you are on the second floor you will have to drag your luggage up the stairs. Read less

Not even halfway through my visit and already have had my expectations exceeded many times. I arrived early and it was no problem to check in. Reina and Dará were happy to check me in early and offered to help me with my luggage and finding my way around. I was amazed when Pierre in housekeeping went way above and beyond to help me. I had gone shopping at Publix and had a large wagon of water, soft drinks and snacks to bring to my second-floor room. Pierre - without being asked - carried it all upstairs for me, and with a smile. This seriously exceeded any expectations. Chris at the front desk has been more than helpful, answering my barrage of questions and helping me ensure my arriving family has everything they need. Annette at the front desk went way above and beyond to help my arriving family, who are having their wedding here. She showed me a variety of available rooms they could choose form and then helped me by showing me a low-traffic walkway to the shopping plaza next door. When the bride and groom arrived, Chris took them back to their room choices and explained the features of each. He also comped a pool cabana for the wedding party so they have a reserved place to gather. These little touches go so far to make a visit special. I could not be happier with the team in each part of the property, and I am sure I will be adding to my review after our weekend wedding!! Read less
