Beautiful and conveniently located hotel/resort (right across from Smather’s Beach)! We stayed in a King Suite and were pleasantly surprised with the size and modern finishes! The property itself has a very picturesque and clean feel as well. The pool was equipped with plenty of chairs, umbrellas and cabanas! When you need a break from excursions and Duval St., it’s nice to have these relaxing amenities at your fingertips! The shuttle to and from downtown was also a definite perk - it was reliable and completely eliminated the need for driving. Overall, this is a fantastic property, but be aware of the hidden resort fees that will be added on at the end of your stay for each day of your reservation. Ours came out to be a little over $200 additional dollars for 3 nights.

Just got back from our trip to Key West. We chose this resort because we have stayed at 2 other Margaritaville resorts that we loved. I will say, this was our least favorite property. Let me start with the positives. The service from all the staff was very good. Many kind, friendly people that made us feel comfortable. The rooms were nice, spacious and comfortable. The negatives, there are a few. The resort is very pricey for what you get. The bar and restaurant are very expensive, so we chose not to eat or drink much on property. We were also very disappointed by the lack of things to do on property. The pool is very small for the size of the resort and was very crowded and hot during the peak of the afternoon sun. Across the street is a beach that the resort offers no chairs or umbrellas for. There is a pretty high daily resort fee that does not match what the resort actually offers. The last thing is the resort is on the quieter side of the island and requires a shuttle ride to and from the Duval street area where most of the action is day or night. We made the best of it and had a nice trip, but I would not recommend staying at this property to my friends.
