Cons: They said they never got my amoma registration and even though I had a voucher sent to me, when I imputed my info on the amoma website, they didn't have my information either. My card was charged and I paid for the room. It took me 9'hours to drive to the Hyatt, was tired, and had to drive to several hotels before I found one with a vacancy. Not a fun way to start off the holiday. Fix your reservation systems!
Pros: Staff was great...rooms taken care of...great breakfast...nice overall experience...bathrooms in room fantastic. I would recommend to others.
Cons: No hot tub...pool a tad small for facility size...beach further than stated..
Cons: Odor of room's carpet
Lack of towels and accessories for quantity of people in room
Pros: Beautiful lighthouse behind the hotel. Rooms were clean. Staff was friendly. Nice size bathroom with shower head.
Cons: The pull out sofa had white mold growing on the bottom of it. The room also had a funny smell the first day we were there. I prepaid through Kayak but the hotel tried to charge me the full room rate when I was checking out (over $115 more than I originally paid).

Abundant outdoor event lawns, meeting space and waterside pool awaits our guests.
Pros: The location was wonderful and the staff were extremely helpful. The rooms were very clean and were big enough that we would have been comfortable staying for a much longer time (we only stayed 2 days). We are definitely planning on a return trip to Islamorada and will be staying here again!
Cons: The air conditioner was pretty noisy at night.
A great choice for a stay in Islamorada, Pines & Palms Resort features a marina. After splashing around at the outdoor pool, you can unwind with a drink at the bar/lounge. A beach bar and a poolside bar are other highlights, and rooms offer conveniences like refrigerators and microwaves.
Pros: We stayed there for one night with another couple. We enjoyed it so very much and will be returning. It is more beautiful than we had all expected. Great bang for the buck!

Cons: Small pool, pool was only open until 10 pm on holiday weekend.

Pros: I liked the lanai, and the convenient access to the beach. The breakfast was excellent and the wait staff were so friendly. They were locals and gave us great advice on activiities that our grandchildren would appreciate. The beach and the pools were super. The zero entry into the pool was awesome.
There are also great opportunities for water activity rentals-kayaks, sailboats, water cycles etc.
Cons: Bandwidth on the wifi is inadequate for peak times in the evening.
Cons: No one cleaned outlet rooms.
Pros: The room was great! Had everything we needed and more! Wish we booked more days. We will be back!
Pros: The room was nice and spacious. We enjoyed being able to walk down and access the water without having to go anywhere. The restaurant was delicious and workers were super friendly.
Cons: The front desk staff when we checked in weren't very engaging. Even when we checked out they were very matter of fact and didn't try to engage us. When we were walking out there was one that ask if we had fun and enjoyed our stay. She definetly out shined anyone else working in that department.
Pros: The resort is in a wonderful location right on the beach. The pool and beach bar are beautiful. The rooms were large, fresh and clean. Loved having a kitchenette and a screened-in porch! We'll definitely be back!
Pros: Nice relaxing ocean front resort. Rooms somewhat dated but very clean and comfortable with a mini kitchen. Pool and bar area very new. Lots of room with 2 pools and a very large beach. I would definitely go again. Good value for Florida Keys.
Cons: Check in was a bit rough, room not ready on time
Pros: Perfect location. Make sure to wake up for the sunrise.. Shouldn't be missed. The rooms are clean and the staff is nice. Great value!
We've never eaten on property but supposedly a continental breakfast is included.
Cons: I've tried to book directly through hate on weekends and they have two night stay policy which is silly for the keys.
Pros: The room had old Florida charm, but in a clean and cheerful way. I loved it! We are looking forward to our next visit!
Pros: We liked everything about the resort.
Nice quiet relaxing place
Pros: We have been going to the Islander on and off from before they had AC and only jalousy windows to the present so I guess we love it's old Florida atmosphere;especially off weekends.
We also like the Pet Friendly atmosphere.
Cons: If you want a wild time weekends are it
Nestled on the beach, this Islamorada resort is within a 15-minute walk of Matecumbe United Methodist Church and Hurricane Monument. Windley Key Fossil Reef Geological State Park and History of Diving Museum are also within 3 mi (5 km).
Pros: Beautiful lobby/restaurant beach area and pool. Staff amazing, friendly and helpful.
Cons: rooms sparse. Need more lighting and seating but other than that clean and modern.
Pros: The rooms are very nice but they are missing a microwave which is very much needed. They have a Keurig Coffee maker and a few K cups to get your day started, plus there is a mini fridge but there was no way to heat your coffee if you like to add milk and cream unless you go down to the front desk and ask them to heat it for you. One other plus was they did freeze our fish (caught from charter fishing) and held it until our departure. Just make sure to remember to pick it up upon your departure. :
Pros: The staff were exceptional especially Steve, Snl and David.i was in love with the decor and the cleanliness of the facility. I would definitely go back. And the view from our room was amazing.
Cons: The construction that was in progress near the pool area was alittle annoying . Also did not care for the breakfast experience the food was just okay and very pricey for what you get.
Cons: There was some remodeling but I'm sure once lt's done it would be amazing
Pros: the rooms were big, nice beds
Cons: bathroom was dirty also the towels were dirty ( they had hair on them)
The service at the restaurant was slow
Pros: Hotel was beautifully decorated with a nice pool, beach and outdoor bar
Pros: The resort was clean and well designed and appointed after the renovation.
Cons: They had given my reservation away and took a while to assign a room while they looked for the snafu. They did provide free drinks and breakfast for the delay, though! So that was thoughtful and accommodated for the delay.
Pros: the beach is nice, not too many beaches in the keys. very nice view of the ocean, and it was great to be able to have access to swim in the ocean. the pool was very nice , as well, kids love the pool.The rooms and everything else were very comfortable.
Cons: Because I am on a lower budget, the only way we were able to stay there was through a 3rd party offer. We were there only for 2 nights. Food and drinks are always pretty expensive at places like this, so I couldn't partake, as I would of liked.
Pros: The staff was exceptional - took care of the snake in my room, showed me how to use coffee pot, and telephone, fixed the TV and put new battery in safe. All unnecessary if it had been done prior to my arrival.
The decor is lovely and the grounds pretty and well kept. Liked the hot tub. Kudoos to Annette
Cons: I don't think the room was checked prior to my occupancy. or been occupied in some time The TV didn't work, the safe didn't work (dead battery) no instructions as to use of phone, coffee pot. the floor of balcony was dirty, no instructions to prevent shower flooding bathroom. I don;t expect to have to call maintenance several times in a 4 day stay when I go for rest and relaxation.It is a handicap room and a flooded floor could cause me to fall...
Pros: Renovations were very well done has a luxury feel to it. Beautiful views pool side. Great little bocce court and swings and slide. Good central location in the keys. Small hidden hot tub.
Cons: We reserved for 4 people and the uncomfortable pull out couch with springs in the mattress was only a twin. We tried to get another room each of the 4 nights with no luck. Lots of tiny jelly fish (sea lice) in the ocean entry area. I did not get stung, but both of my kids did.
Pros: I liked everything about it! The front desk member Annette was most helpful.
Cons: I didn't bring my id to get drinks because I didn't want to lose it in the sand or water. I was denied a drink at the Amarca Bay bar outside. I recommend that there a be a system in place that allows guests to charge drinks to their room. Try temporary database of guest's proof of age to the Front desk conputers, or distribute a proof of age wristband.
Pros: Great hot tub area, nice to have a bar right near the pool so you can have lunch pool side, little play area in the sand was a nice plus, very modern and the food was incredible.
Cons: So many things...we asked for the nearest boat ramp and they directed us to one miles away when they had one on location. I called ahead and asked about accommodations. They said every room has a pull out couch. It was a pull out chair...not couch. Couldn't sleep our family comfortably. Wanted ice, 2 different staff directed me to 2 different floors where there wasn't an ice machine.
This newly refreshed Florida Keys resort getaway is an iconic property that offers the retro, throwback feel of a nostalgic American beach vacation, combined with modern amenities, designer furnishings and a touch of whimsy.

Pros: Great facility.
Professional and courteous staff members.
Nice and clean
Pros: Everything! Felt very private everywhere! The grounds were beautiful. Decor elegant. Staff very nice and incredibly accommodating.
Cons: Service at bar and restaurant a little slow to start. Would like the pool water to be a little cooler.
Pros: Loved it, the amenities were great considering most resorts charge you for all the activities. The food and service was great and the place is so beautiful and lush.
Pros: ROOM AND SERVICE PEOPLE WERE GOOD AND HELPFUL
Cons: NOT A "4" STAR LUXURY RETREAT BASED ON THE DAILY RATE BUT OK .
Pros: Great location, really nice amenities. We liked the setup too, smaller buildings built on the beach with a couple of lagoons. The pitch and putt course was great, as was the inclusion of sea kayaks, fishing poles, and tennis gear.
Cons: NOT having stand-up paddle boards as part of the "resort fee" when virtually everything else is included is sort of dumb. The Atlantic Edge restaurant is pretty good, but way over priced for the fare when compared to other local restaurants. That said, there are LOTS of other local places so don't feel compelled to spend twice as much for a piece of fresh local fish.

The outdoor pool is a great spot to take a dip, and guests can grab a bite to eat at Porkys Bayside, which serves seafood and is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Pros: I enjoyed the location and appreciated the size of our room, almost a a one bedroom apartment.
Cons: We didn't like that you could hear every footstep and door slam from our neighbors.
Pros: Awesome location, beautiful grounds, and an amazing beach front. Rooms were modern despite an older feel to the resort.
Cons: Construction at the time of visit. They cut through a sewer line near my room and it was stanky. Was a minor annoyance and did not detract from my trip. But you may want to check and make sure the constuction has been completed.
Pros: Would highly recommend. Service was excellent. Room was comfy and nice.
Pros: The pool was beautiful and is heated! The views were amazing.
Cons: At the time we stayed there was no wifi. There were tiny gnats crawling around the bathroom sink every day. The window hinge was broken so that the window would not close; however this was fixed immediately by the staff by screwing the window permanently shut.
There was a coffee pot with supplies to make coffee, but no cups provided.
Pros: The place they moved us to was ok for the time we had it was near the dive shop and good restaurants still would have like to stay where we planned on staying. The staff was nice and rooms clean
Cons: Check in was not tell after 4pm check out was by 11am even though we could stay and use beach after checking out it seemed rushed maybe next time we can stay longer and at the main resort.
Pros: I loved the view and the size of the rooms however they were dated.
Cons: There is nowhere to even buy a bottle of water on the resort. Needs a tiki bar and at least a snack bar.. Or soda machine!
Pros: We have been coming here for about 6 years now for lobster mini season, accommodations are perfect for us....
Cons: It would be awesome if the marina could comfortably accommodate midsize boats, I'm talking about 24' to 30' range... my dredging out some of the slips and channel. But I also understand that there are environmental red tape and hefty fees to make that happen down in the keys...
Pros: one bedroom with full kitchen
Cons: sofa bed was broken and housekeeping said oh well sorry...and did nothing for fix...stay away from room 118
Pros: Very nice marina.
Cons: Too pricey for what it is.
Pros: The basic room was fantastic ! Lobed my stay!
Cons: This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed at.
Staff could use a lesson in how to run a hotel
Pros: Nice pool and jacuzzi
Cons: Old beds, rooms are old and a bit musty. Tv did not work. Was a bit more like a motel than a hotel
La Siesta Resort & Marina is putting the finishing touches on a refresh of our all-suite beachfront hotel. A favorite getaway of Keys residents, charter fishing captains and in-the-know anglers, our six-acre Islamorada hideaway has reopened. We look forward to welcoming you for a dream getaway.
One of the best kept secrets and favorite escapes of Keys aficionados, La Siesta Islamorada beach hotel is located on 6-acres of oceanfront accessible by the historic Overseas Highway at mile marker 80. Our Islamorada beach hotel is less than 90 minutes from Miami, putting the resort in the heart of the lively Florida Keys, providing a tranquil escape among native flora and fauna for an uncommonly relaxing retreat. Escape from the everyday and embrace the natural beauty of Florida at its best. The shimmering blue hues of the Atlantic Ocean greet you upon arrival as the private sugar sand beach calls your name.
Pros: The location was nice, and the staff was helpful and kind. The on-site restaurant was not only delicious but also staffed by friendly folks.
Cons: We experienced problems with the air conditioning in our room, which took several phone calls to the front desk to fix. They were also remodeling the hotel, so there was quite a bit of noise and such during the day. If I had to do it again, I'd stay somewhere else.
Cons: I am a female police officer. I went on a mini vacation and stayed in this hotel. Staff, food and cleanliness were great. But I do have a safety suggestion that I unfortunately realized how unsafe this was until I had a bad experience. When you check in they ask you to put on a wrist band that you cannot take off (even if you try) so employees can verify you are a guest at the hotel. Not a problem until you leave the hotel and go to different locations in the area and bump into someone local and unfortunately don't have good intentions or they are a habitual criminals and are familiar with tourist wearing their hotel name on the wrist. This makes them know a few things: 1) that they are a tourist (not familiar with area) making the tourist an easy target. Marking them as an easy target to rob them as tourist usually carry cash on them. Break into vehicles since tourist shop for gifts. 2) and the most important and unfortunately it happened to me. The suspect/offender will know where you are staying making it easy for them to plan the crime. I had an unknown male approach me while I was listening to music and having dinner and drinks with my female friend at a restaurant nearby. Male extended his arm as if he was introducing himself. He made it seem as if he was the manager so I politely extended my arm and shook his hand. He introduced himself. He was a customer. He asked me if he can buy me a drink and hang out with him. I kindly declined as I am a married woman. Little did I know or realized he already knew where I was staying because that's when he took advantage and read the bracelet that sqys the hotel name. Long story short without going into details I saw this male the next morning in the property canvassing the area. Still didn't think much of it till I saw him at night again, qt which point he aggressively approached my friend and myself. I will not go into details but because of that bracelet I became a victim. I hope that policy changes where we do not have to wear anything advertising our 'home' location to everyone and anyone. That is our home when we go on vacation.
Pros: friendly staff, fun atmosphere
Cons: under construction, non working elevators, expensive for what you get
Pros: The location was great! The pool is ok but gets better after a few drinks. The beach activities are fun too. Had a great time snorkeling and paddle boarding. The food was AMAZING and very reasonable priced.
Cons: The $25 resort fee is a joke(it includes parking, internet, and beach activities). If I have paid for a hotel, I don't want to have to pay more once I get there just to check in. The rooms were very small and had non functional furniture. There is nowhere to store your clothing. The water trampoline had a big tare in it so bouncing was out. The large inflatable rafts in the lagoon all had popped and were removed from the water during our stay. The pool was ok but really needed some upkeep. The bar looked like it was about to topple over into the pool. The alcohol was overpriced. All and all, we had a good time with our friends and family but I doubt I would come back. The resort was way too expensive for the value I received.
Pros: The location and staff were great.
Cons: Our room was very noisy when others were in the hall or adjacent rooms; this made it very difficult to sleep. A construction crew started working outside of our room very early in the morning.
Our A/C wasn't very cold.
The resort is undergoing renovations, and the amenities in service are very dated.
The area was under a small craft advisory during our stay and they wouldn't let us use the watersports equipment.
Pros: The place was really nice. Great location. Great restaurants in the area. The only issue was the shower. I can't descibe how bad it was. The room was nicely done but they forgot to update the shower.
Cons: The shower and the maids. You couldn't even get them to say good morning. It became a game - who can get the maid to respond to good morning.
Pros: the grounds were lovely and well kept and a beautiful place. lots of lounge chairs etc. and the staff was wonderful, especially,dave at beach services and Lita at the pool bar . ate at the raw bar and the food was good.We had a wonderful time and the only draw back was the awful room. a very pretty place.
Cons: the room was terrible. extremely small and poor lighting. bathroom was in need of work. except for the bed it was not a comfortable room to be in. a big disappointment ! there was no place to sit your things down or store your cases. smallest room I have ever stayed in.
Pros: the view of the ocean
Cons: the tiki bar was under construction
the hotel still needs some updating
the bathtub was in poor condition
the stairs need paint
could use an elevator
Pros: Very modern room...although short on electrical outlets. Large, comfortable, and clean for a beach hotel. Lots of beach activities included in price which is great. Front desk clerks very nice and helpful.
Cons: The hallways...made of concrete which is understandable but in your room you can hear guests walking, talking, etc.
Pros: The property is very nice on the outside, where you spend most of your time. All staff was helpful (water equipment rental booth, front desk, and maintenance) Came to the Keys hoping to see iguanas and they had a large family hanging out in a remote section of the property! Water equipment is free to use daily for about an hour at a time.
Cons: There is no area to grill. As a returning renter, I was disappointed their massive bar Rum Runners is permanently closed. The Tiki Bar was under renovation, and the room prices don't seem to fluctuate to reflect that, thus upon arrival my full expectations were not met. Obvious A/C leaking causing water damage to ceiling suggests they need to spend time inspecting/repairing units.
Pros: The location, ocean view, amenities and friendly staff
Cons: Both bars closed for renovation. Bars that were open had rotting wood and mildew. Frozen oysters at raw bar.
Cons: Did not know the tiki bar was closed for renovations. But overall was a good place to stay for the money.

Pros: The location was great, the room was clean and comfortable and the staff was on their toes!
Cons: The only items worth complaining about was the lack of shade at the pool and the free breakfast.
Pros: Stayed only one night can really say much
Cons: Room had a weird smell! I don't know where was it coming from we had to stay with the aircoditioning on and there was little cretures under the bed
Pros: Beautiful views, super clean, spacious, quick check in, friendly staff, quality of bedding was awesome! We will stay here again and recommend to anyone I know coming to the area. Also the restaurant on site was delicious!!
Cons: That we only stayed for one night!
Pros: Loved it and will recommend others, had a great time
Pros: My wife and I loved the view from our waterfront balcony!
Pros: Location right by the water. Some of the rooms were remodeled. Continental breakfast only on the weekends.
Cons: There was no breakfast on site. There was some muffins, but nothing you could eat that was nutritious or low-calorie
There was remodeling and they were taking out the tile in the room next-door, which was unbearable during the day
My reservation was messed up and they require me to change rooms checking out and checking back in the following day and I had nowhere to go till 3 o'clock. The reservation mixup was not my fault it was probably the hotel or hotels.com. However I was the one analyze and they made no effort to resolve this issue
Pros: Staff was attentive, friendly and made our visit very relaxing and pleasurable. Violet and Shelby were wonderful and met all of our lodging and resort needs.
Pros: The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The townhouse we rented was very clean and beautifully decorated. The outside premises was very clean and kid friendly. I loved the outdoor hammocks and open space for the children to play. I also like that they offer recreational activities for their guest.
Cons: I wanted a later check out which was not available as well as the complimentary breakfast was somewhat limited. However it was very minor compared to the other fantastic amenities.
Pros: Rooms aren't anything too fancy but overall nice. But staying in the keys I don't think you need a lot inside because I'd imagine most are coming to be outside. The complimentary breakfast is basic (bagels, pastries, juice, etc) and you can buy eggs, pancakes, etc. The views are amazing! Right on the water and plenty of places to relax outside! Overall, nice stay.
Pros: Beachfront view, pier and comfortable rooms.
Cons: The new restaurant, staff did not come across welcoming, we ordered cocktails which were very poorly presented and bland not to mention expensive. That was disappointing.
Cons: Late breakfast
Pros: Couldn't be better considering the price! Kayaks were free to use, you just had to reserve them at the front desk. A good number of hammocks and chairs around for guests to sit in while lounging around the common area as well.
The room was beautiful with a fantastic view and a private deck, absolutely loved it!! There was also a kitchenette with dishes to use, so if you were staying there for longer you could make some food and eat at the little table in the room.
Cons: There were reserved spaces for some of the rooms, but ours was a "B" numbered room so there was no real place to park, and we had to park our car off the highway in the grass next to the building.

Cons: Little high in price for quality
Under construction created less parking
Long line for check out, should simplify
Pros: We enjoyed the location of Sombrero hotel and the free use of their boat ramp and trailer parking they offer to guests. The marina is about a 30 minute ride from Sombrero Reef Light.
Cons: Some of the property appeared to be occupied by extended stay patrons that enjoyed settling their domestic problems at midnight over a few too many drinks. Some nights were less than restfull. We got our money worth from the stay. Not unhappy.
Pros: Staff . AC in MB was nice and cold. Plenty of hot water. Close to the Tri event we went there in the first place. Great view of the canal and the boats
Cons: AC in LR was minimal. Rug was badly stained and torn. Condo unit was sorely missing basic kitchen items. Not enough towels. Place needs major renovation
Pros: Check in was easy. Check out was easy. A nice clean quiet beach was about five minutes down the street, and a Kmart and grocery store was at the corner. The bartender was friendly and had decently priced drinks. Parking was easy.
Cons: The desk staff was impatient and rude when there was more than one customer in the lobby. I couldn't believe the way they talked to people on the phone. I had to come back to the front desk about an hour after checking in and the lady didn't even remember me and treated me like I was a nuisance. They require a photocopy of your credit card when you check in. The rooms had mold on the bathroom ceiling and the carpets felt mildewed and were stained, and the lighting was minimal and dingy. My room was ony fully serviced one night. The second night they only took trash and left no clean towels and the last two nights there was no service at all. There is no night attendant or phone in the room. The wifi works but it took me asking the bartender to get the correct password. Cost was cheap but I wish I'd sucked it up and spent more at a cleaner and more hospitable hotel. Luckily I spent all my time outside at other places. Fyi, there's no marina there, and it's FAR from being a resort.
Pros: I loved the kichen and space. The front door opened to a wide canel with beautiful sailboats and yachts tied up. I loved the view. Nice breeze. 2nd floor so I could the stairs. Elevator slow.
Cons: They are renovating, for the next year. From 8:30am to 5:30/6pm. First morning out my front door using a lift to get to roof, which beeped anytime it moved up or down. Last night came back to room to change at 5pm and they were jack hammering my patio.

Pros: The people were fantastic. Views were amazing especially the sunsets. We would go back in a heartbeat!
Pros: Location. It is literally on the Gulf of Mexico. If you jumped off the back porch and then swam backward, you would be under your room. Very cool.
Cons: The nearest restaurant is about 6 miles away. They have a food truck on site which was o.k.
Pros: Everything was very nice I loved it

Cons: No swimming due to seaweed.
When you stay at White Sands Inn, you'll be within a 15-minute drive of Dolphin Research Center and Sombrero Beach. Guests can enjoy the outdoor pool, along with onsite kayaking. Rooms feature conveniences like refrigerators and microwaves.
Pros: Location was nice water view was pretty. Rooms were clean, but the floors were dirty. Staff was friendly.
Cons: Well it's been 2 weeks and since the "system was down" at checkout I was informed my receipt would be emailed to me. Still waiting. Tiki bar was very limited beer and wine and closed at 6:30pm.
Pros: Nice property with clean rooms. Great spot to see sunset and a very nice large pool. Beach is small rocky and too close to Marina.
Cons: Beach too close to Marina. Property really for boater transients so mainly older retired people.
Pros: Rooms were updated, clean and comfortable.
Cons: Property is run down and in need of updateing and cleaning.
Pros: Grounds are nice despite needing some maintenance. Direct access to marina. Cute but minimal room decor.
Cons: Understaffed. Front desk manager rude and incompetent. Room not serviced prior to arrival or for entire length of stay. Expect to be told by the front house manager that you're lying about room issues, especially if requesting your room to be serviced, needing towels or amenities. Aggressive mosquitos on the grounds, in the hallways, and especially in the rooms, so the room patios are useless. No pool/water activity towels, so expect to hoard bath towels in your room. Contrary to the hotel's sales pitch from their reservation agents at B Hotels, there are no bikes included with your resort fee. In fact, absolutely nothing is provided for your resort fee. Overpriced for the quality of accommodations and extreme lack of service. Feels like a cheap motel that was nicely renovated, but kept the same staff and same poor level of service (read: none).
Pros: hotel is old, with very little amenities.
