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.
ROOM AND SERVICE PEOPLE WERE GOOD AND HELPFUL NOT A "4" STAR LUXURY RETREAT BASED ON THE DAILY RATE BUT OK .
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. 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.
Everything! Felt very private everywhere! The grounds were beautiful. Decor elegant. Staff very nice and incredibly accommodating. Service at bar and restaurant a little slow to start. Would like the pool water to be a little cooler.
Great facility. Easily accessible. Professional and courteous staff members. Nice and clean
My wife and I stayed for 3 nights at Islander and could not have been more impressed with the facility! We loved the rooms, amenities and especially the proximity to the ocean. The room was clean and spacious, we were able to walk around the property which is beautiful and we enjoyed the pool, Tiki Bar and Hot tub very much. We will most surely be back. Nothing.
No one cleaned outlet rooms.
I loved the layout of the grounds and the fact that everything was just outside of your room. The beach was huge and the pool(s) were amazing. The people at the Tiki Bar were very friendly. The front office staff was abrupt and the blue pool towels were very poor quality.
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. 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.
The room was great! Had everything we needed and more! Wish we booked more days. We will be back!
nice rooms, all 1st floor, nice pools, breakfast included (but basic) Prsonell at the desk need to pay more attention to their guests than to their pc monitor
The location is great, the staff is friendly and and the resort layout is pefect with the tiki bar amost on the seawall beach. None worth mentioning.
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.
Did not know the tiki bar was closed for renovations. But overall was a good place to stay for the money.
The location and staff were great. 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.
The location, ocean view, amenities and friendly staff Both bars closed for renovation. Bars that were open had rotting wood and mildew. Frozen oysters at raw bar.
I loved that the resort fee included paddle Boarding and kayaks Did not care for the choice of music played at the Saturday BBQ
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. 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.
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. The hallways...made of concrete which is understandable but in your room you can hear guests walking, talking, etc.
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. 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.
friendly staff, fun atmosphere under construction, non working elevators, expensive for what you get
the view of the ocean the pool the restaurants 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
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. 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.
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. 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.
Very nice marina. Too pricey for what it is.
I loved the view and the size of the rooms however they were dated. 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!
Awesome location, beautiful grounds, and an amazing beach front. Rooms were modern despite an older feel to the resort. 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.
I enjoyed the location and appreciated the size of our room, almost a a one bedroom apartment. We didn't like that you could hear every footstep and door slam from our neighbors.
We have been coming here for about 6 years now for lobster mini season, accommodations are perfect for us.... 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...
This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. Staff could use a lesson in how to run a hotel
Nice pool and jacuzzi Old beds, rooms are old and a bit musty. Tv did not work. Was a bit more like a motel than a hotel
Would highly recommend. Service was excellent. Room was comfy and nice.
one bedroom with full kitchen sofa bed was broken and housekeeping said oh well sorry...and did nothing for fix...stay away from room 118
The pool was beautiful and is heated! The views were amazing. 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.
The basic room was fantastic ! Lobed my stay! Nothing
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 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.
Everything! There are no words to describe how perfect this place is! Beautiful, friendly, exceptional and the price is extremely reasonable for what you get. I want to live there!!!
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
It's a charming little hotel resort from the 1940s. If you like that type of hotel, this is one of the nicest I've been to. No
This is a beautiful and quaint hotel with a great setting by the ocean. I honestly thought it would be a little more rough around the edged judging by the price but my room with new, clean, and well stocked. The view was stunning! I don't want to complain because this is one of the best hotels I've stayed at in the keys but the sheets were a bit rough, especially if your sunburned.
Great location - amazing spot to watch the sunrise in the morning. Very noisy air conditioner. Had to turn that off to sleep at night.
Loved the scenery and the beautiful waters. Very close to restaurants and shops. They di not have a Tiki bar or restaurant
The view and well kept grounds were incredible. The view of sunrise and sunset were breathtaking. The tiki bar with local beers was a plus. Unfortunately we arrived and immediately jumped in the shower. The shower was not cleaned property with black long hair all over the shower wall. This was not s good start to our stay. Also, the shower and bathroom could be updated to reflect the beauty of the locale and the price of the rooms.
Great waterfront view from our room, heated pools, and nice harbor for the boats. Covered parking was nice and the staff was also very friendly. You are charged a daily resort fee not included in the original cost, but I have to say it's less of a resort and more of a hotel.
We liked the views and proximity to water and water sports. Breakfast was good. Plenty of outdoor seating to relax. Good location. Our bed was so tough to sleep in, and we tried both beds in the room. We woke up with sore backs and tossed all night. So we were tired a lot of the trip from barely sleeping. We are young too so this is not regular for us. Other than that, the room could have been cleaner, specifically the shower. And we wished for a tiki bar for drinks on resort.
Just ONE catamaran is not ready for sailing. Lack some important accessories for normal sailing.
Staff was very helpful in getting our room upgraded to a king room. We were even able to upgrade to a king suite with ocean view. We did have to pay more, but it was discounted for us. Very quiet and relaxing with a beautiful view! Our room at first had 2 double beds and we wanted a king.
Breakfast awesome fresh Construction all day next door, no food at property. The have a bar/tiki but it is closed. Rug in rooms very clammy. Only to sleep and leave.
i liked the location of the resort. The activities like kayaking, biking and sailing were of no extra charge. Breakfast was included. The views and grounds were very attractive. Our college aged daughter and friends joined us for an overnight, and really loved the resort.
We stayed in one of the cottages. Nice screened in porch and beds were very comfy. Sitting on top of the tiki hut was awesome in the breeze watching the motor sports on the water. Really nice place. We saw a sign that said no taking wildlife from the lagoon so we didn't fish off the dock. The dock was full of snapper but we could only fish off the beach were there were no fish.
We upgraded from a regular room to a suite 702, and was thrilled with the accommodations, could not have asked for a better view. Felt like royalty for 3 days. PS Breakfast is included I think with most rooms was acceptable
