We stayed at The Reach for a week and totally enjoyed everything about it. The resort sits right on the Atlantic Beach. They provide chairs and umbrellas for your beach days. The pool is heated and is very clean. The pool attendants are very nice and courteous and were there to help with any need we had. Our room was...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 November 2016

After an excellent stay for one night at the Reach 2 years ago we returned for 4 nights this time. Once again, the stay was excellent with clean, spotless rooms, very friendly staff and excellent facilities. It is close to Southermost Point and one block away from Duval Street which, for those unfamiliar with Key West, is the "main strip"...

I'm from the gulf coast, and still own a condo there which I rent out. Our beaches are white, sugary sand, and so I expected the same out of Key West. Turns out I was pretty far off base, and their beaches are far rockier, and nearly unpleasant. A very unique aspect of the Waldorf is they have their very...

Lots of noisy (jack hammers) construction on the exterior during the day and the rooms are worn and dated. Housekeeping needs improvement but the rest of the staff tried their best to overcome these obstacles. I commend them! Sad situation for a Waldoff.

Let start with this, I get that it is Key West, but you don't get to rob people blind. Here's the thing, I excerpted the price of $450 when my husband said "resort" and there is no Hampton Inn near the starting point of the race. So, we came, we saw, and felt robbed. First, the room was the size...

The Reach is on a nice sandy stretch of beach with a very nice pool. It is also very close to Duval street. The food at the bar and restaurant was excellent. Great drinks too. The only negative was the concierge. We asked about snorkeling specifically with the Dry Tortugues tour. She highly recommended it. Gave us some great tips...

Folks there are just too many nice hotels in Key West to bother with this one. Granted it's got a great location but it is really dated and not well maintained. It's a concrete jungle with the worst possible acoustics. Generally speaking the staff grudgingly does their jobs - a bellman nearly refused to transfer us to a sister property,...

This is THE place to stay in Key West! Conveniently located not far from Duvall street but secluded enough to enjoy the beautiful beach and pool. The staff is excellent. You will not regret booking here for your Key West vacation. Only good beach in Key West!

This is a great hotel at a great price. The view was exceptional and the staff were very friendly and helpful especially Mihlo the jet ski tour person. He went above and beyond to make sure that my girlfriend and I enjoyed ourselves. Definitely worth the money. Best part of the trip by far.

The location is amazing, great beach and good pool area. The reception area is not really great - the first impression is a bit dis-heartening, equally so the internal common areas. However, the room was great - very large and clean with a nice balcony. At check-in we were very surprised by the mandatory $30/day "resort fee" to use the...
