“Great Tiki Bar - Bartender Geoffrey from Jamaica made trip!”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

This hotel is wonderful for families. Two pools and a hot tub. One pool has a very pretty waterfall. The tiki bar in the middle of the two pools is delightful. The bartender, Geoffrey, (originally from Jamaica) made our night fun and enjoyable. He was attentive and very funny. He had to make several trips inside to meet our requests and did so with a big smile. He made frozen virgin drinks for the kids that they are still talking about. He treated them with respect and got a well deserved big tip too. The man at the front desk moved our room to poolside without any hesitation when we first arrived. We did not eat in the restaurant so I cannot comment on that, however, the menu looked very good. There is a separate more casual menu for the tiki bar too. The room rate was a bit high considering the main amenity is the pool area (the hotel sits right on the highway and has no beach or other scenery but the grounds along the walkways are lush and tropical). Overall, I would go back for a night (would not stay here for a long visit but just passing through on the way to the Keys) just to talk to Geoffrey again. He is a gem and I work in the hospitality industry - people like him are hard to find. I would hire him in a heartbeat! Thanks Geoffrey!

In honisty I only ever stay i Key Largo on the way to and back from Key West so all I am looking for is a stop over. Staff are friendly and helpful. The area is good. The hotel is clean - if a little dated.

Room Tip: The cheaper rooms have the "Carpark View" which is fine if you just need to sleep.

Pleasantly suprised with this Holiday Inn. Very clean and smelled freshly cleaned every time we walked in. Rooms are very spacious, bright and airy.
A marina view room is a nice treat. Two beautiful outdoor pools with whirlpool hot tub, big tiki bar and live entertainment.. Delicious shrimp cocktail and flatbread pizza. Friendly, attentive bartender.

Room Tip: Marina rooms are nice. The Original boat from the African Queen movie is there for viewing and cruis...

I was unimpressed with a lot of things including the room and service at the front desk. They were kind of hot and cold at the front desk - I expect at least friendliness when interacting and I think some of the clerks are less so than others. When we checked in we were told that they were putting us in the newer/ most recent remodled rooms. We never saw another room in other buildings but even the rooms across the hall were better than the one we had. There was one window and it looked out at the wall of the next building. Not sure when the remodle was but it couldnt have been recent. The only good thing about this place was they have 2 pools and the area is quite attractive. Unfortunately the one day we had some sun it was difficult to find a chair to use. Next time we go I would not pick Key Largo to stay - just didnt feel the charm here.

We stayed for 1 night and loved it, wish we could have stayed longer. It really felt like we were staying at an expensive resort. We arrived early and they let us check in early with no problems. Our room was clean, with lot's of space, and the most comfortable king size bed I've slept in, in a long time. The pool area was perfect, lot's of chairs and tables available and not at all crowed when we were there. Front desk service was fast, friendly and efficient, wifi was fast and the shower was great. The location could not be beat, right on the marina and within walking distance of restaurants and convenience stores. Perfect, scenic spot to stay in Key Largo.

A Holiday Inn with a tropical feel. It reminded me of the Caribbean Beach in Disney. We were looking for a place to stop on our way back from Key West to Miami. We got this as a Price line express deal. We enjoyed dinner in their restaurant, the food was good, and not overpriced. The breakfast buffet is a little steep at $11.99 each, but there's a Dunkin Doughnuts and a Starbucks right out front. There's also a Tiki bar by the pool and plenty of tables to sit and enjoy a drink. We would have stayed a second night, but we already had a room booked in Miami Beach.

We chose this hotel to base our Summer Vacation from. It had a great central location between Miami and Key West, and we wanted to sample everything there was to offer. Now that we've been and seen what is there, we plan to go back to this hotel to enjoy our favorite spots.

We had to check in very late because of our flight, but the overnight clerk was friendly, welcoming and was a wonderful help as to some local items of interest. The room was perfect for what we needed. A place to sleep at night and clean up in the morning.

Just about every night we were at the pools or in the hot tub, enjoying the poolside bar. Drinks were a bit expensive, but that wasn't unexpected. I do regret not having dined at the hotel restaurant, and hope to try it this next visit.

Room Tip: The main hotel has lower level rooms that open directly onto the pool courtyard. If you want quiet...
