Where do I begin...we travelled to Key Largo after four days in Key West. We stayed at a nice Inn in Key West, so I guess that when we got to the Sunset Cove Resort it was the completely opposite experience! The resort is definitely unique. It's colorful - as are many buildings in the keys. There are dinosaurs, bears, zebras, gnomes, you name it all over the property (fake of course). They also have some (live) birds. Things around the property were falling apart or outdated though. There were a only a couple of lights lit up on the pier at night (most missing, burned out or broken). Lots of the couches/chair covers underneath the tiki huts were wet, dirty or old. One of the kayaks (out of 2) had a massive LEAK and one of the canoes (out of 2) had a broken seat. The staff was friendly. We originally booked one of their campers to stay in, but when we check it out it was OLD OLD OLD. The stove didn't work, the couch fabric was OLD, floors old, table old, everything was drab and dark. So we switched to a different camper, a newer one from probably the mid 90s (still old). It was fairly clean, it took me a bit to take my sandals off though. The price we paid ($135 a night) was NOT WORTH IT to stay in a camper from the 90's. We should have stayed in one of the cabins - those looked much nicer. I would recommend to NOT STAY IN A CAMPER at this place. The view of the water and sunsets were GREAT! I got some awesome photos of sunsets. You could sit at the end of the pier at night and see lots of stars. We did not swim off their beach, although we did see people swimming. The water is clear, lots of sea grass to explore if you have snorkel equip. NO POOL at the resort. Very QUIET and relaxing place. Low key. I had mixed feelings about this place - but I think it's because we came straight from Key West where we stayed at a nicer hotel. My top three things to do while staying at Sunset Cove --- 1) Drive 30 miles south on Highway 1 to Anne's Beach. Great swimming and spots to picnic. 2) Take a boat out to John Pennekamp - the reef and fish are amazing. 3) Go to a bar called Sharkey's (it's on the canal, across from the Holiday Inn). They have live music at night and awesome fish tacos.
