My family (wife and two boys aged 4 and 1.5) and I stayed here for five days. We were supremely impressed with the stunning beauty of the resort, the courteous staff, and the laid back nature of the place.
This was our first time to the Florida Keys, and from the earlier reviews I was a little uncertain of what we were going to get. However, our minds were quickly put to ease when we pulled into the sunny parking spot surrounded by blossoming florescent flowers, the ocean only a hundred feet from our room. The desk staff was friendly, and welcoming.
We stayed in Building 5 on the 3rd floor with a perfect view of the harbor. Just to give you a sense of the place. I walked over to pick up a couple blankets from the headquarters building one evening. On my way back I saw a group of kids looking over the edge of the docks. I walked up, and a manatee was nosing his way along the edge of the dock. One of the kids actually climbed down the ladder and petted the gentle giant.
Pros: The views were spectacular. We watched the sun rise from the window in our living room, and had the warm glow of the sunset in our bedroom window. The staff is courteous, professional and extremely responsive. There was an excellent and very friendly maintenance man working there that I was really impressed with. The main bed was comfy, and the Jacuzzi bath tub was really nice. The place had a very comfortable and friendly vibe, and I would highly recommend it for families. The beach is small, but very pretty and there is a nice walk-way out into the water. A lot of wildlife in the area - birds, iguanas, beautiful fish visible from the dock, and that manatee was a highlight.
Cons: The sleeper sofa is very uncomfortable, and the mattress for the bed was too thin for us to even put our kids on it. Other than that I was really happy with the place.
We will certainly return to stay here when we come back to Key Largo!
Recommend Building 5 on upper floor. It is closest to the docks and the headquarters.
