“Warning! Do not stay here”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Our door to our "cottage" did not lock and in order to keep it closed we needed to slam it shut. It was dirty and outdated. I did not even want to sit on the bed let alone sleep in it. The curtains were see through so everyone could see right into our room - no privacy at all! And our "private porch" was actually just a small fence trying to hide the trailer park 3 feet from our door. We stayed here for about 2 hours until we made the decision to check out and drive to Miami (since we could not get another hotel last minute in Key Largo). I will never return again.

BEWARE!

We are sorry that you weren’t satisfied with your room. The hideaway is not a cottage but a bungalow. The porch is a standard porch with a table and chairs. The Mccaw (rv next to you) is a unique unit that is part of our hotel. The door to the unit has been fixed.The hinge on the door was replaced immediately upon your departure. The Florida Keys was sold out that weekend as we tried to place you somewhere more to your taste. Since we had no other rooms to move you to we did offer you a full refund. We hope that you will re consider and stay with us in one of our water front rooms!

This is sort of a hodge-podge of small cottages (think old Florida motels) that lead down a driveway from busy Route 1 to the water. Each cottage has its own bit of charm, is fairly comfortable and air-conditioned. Even though they advertise having a beach, it's a bit of a stretch to call it a beach - granted, they have more beach than the place next door which has...none! However, overall, the place is comfortable with some neat features like two covered pavilions where people can gather out of the elements and it's not very far into the keys which means less Route 1 travel. It's perfectly fine, just a bit of old Florida motel style accommodations. The bright spot is the staff - very friendly and helpful!

Room Tip: Rooms 9 & 10 directly face the water at the base of the property!

We stayed at Sunset Cove for two nights. The room was well maintained and clean. We had a great view of the water from the room. They have kayaks, a canoe, and a paddleboard available to borrow. Fishing is allowed off of the dock. Robin at the front desk was extremely helpful and kind. We would definitely stay there again!

Needed some much needed RR, so I planned a fishing trip directly across the street on the Sailor's Choice boat drift boat. The boat was reasonable $40.00 per person, and rods and reels are provided. Normally I would go a little further down to stay on Long Key, just to travel that amazing roadway. This was a short trip so decided to stay closer to the boat location, so I chose Sunset Cove Beach Resort, it was a Gem. I only knew it was a small beach cottage on the water, and they had a small pier. to do some night fishing. The property is and Old Florida Zoo ! Lions, Tigers, Zebra and even Dinosaurs where all over the property. We had the Sand Dollar Cottage, it was small, clean, and right on the water. The water sports they provide looked inviting, but didn't use them. The breakfast was minimal coffee, juice,and danishes, there is a Starbucks and Cuban coffee place in walking distance or 1 minute car ride.

Room Tip: Not a luxurious place... The atmosphere is Amazing ! The beach, the sunset, the Keys !

I picked Sunset Cove because I had stayed next door at the Pelican a couple years ago and liked the beach front at Sunset Cove better. We stayed in Suite 7 which sits dead center on the beautiful waterfront and you have a great view from the livingroom window. Our bed mattress was comfortable, it had a goose down comfortor, but the pillows need to be replace with fluffy ones. It has a nice full kitchen, is roomy (although looks bigger in the photos), and had awesome shower pressure. AC was a little noisy The bathroom is small but we didn't care. We used the Kayaks and the little beach was nice to swim in, unlike some other places. There are plenty of Tiki huts and lounges. The property was fairly well kept and the animal statues etc. on the property were cute and I'm sure kids love them. Also, it is PET FRIENDLY. We really enjoyed the "free" music from the Bar and Grille that sits adjacent to the property. There is no fence so you can go over and have dinner or drinks or just stay at Sunset and listen for free. We stayed under the Tiki huts with our drinks and enjoyed watching boats coming to and from the restaurant during the evening. In our rooms we couldn't hear any music with the tv on should you not want to hear it. There are several places nearby to eat or drink. We would not hesitate to stay there again in the same room. The negatives: The housekeeping staff don't all understand English very well so don't look for any directions or advice. To be honest we did find "2" bugs in the bathroom during our stay (it is FLORIDA so I understand) and the staff gave us a refund that was agreed upon and were taking care of the issue. FYI - This can happen anywhere in Florida!

Room Tip: Look at their map and views of the rooms on their website. Remember they look larger in photos and c...
