“Relaxing place!”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

Enjoyed our recent stay at the Dove Creek Lodge for our wedding anniversary. We were there when the pool was being re-surfaced, but were happy that we got a 30% discount because of the inconvience. The pool construction was ending the day we were leaving, but it looked really nice!
The rooms were very clean, flat screen TV's, small refrigerator in the room too.
The staff was very nice. The light breakfast was delicious.
Enjoyed the food at Snappers, an eating establishment in a short walking distance. Enjoyed their music at night. (which ends at 10 p.m.)
Hope to be able to stay at this location again soon.

We just spent one night here at the Dove Creek Lodge and wished we could have stayed longer. It is in a beautiful setting right on the water. I would say its definitely worth it to book a room with a balcony overlooking the ocean. It was so relaxing to sit and look out over the palm trees and water in the morning. I wish we could have stayed longer! We also took advantage of the complimentary kayaks and had a great time exploring the mangroves and the ocean. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and the property is very well maintained. Our room was beautifully decorated and spacious and very clean. I highly recommend the Dove Creek Lodge!

Our original plan was to spend 2 nights here, then find another place for a few nights before going back to Orlando for a flight out. Instead, we spent 5 nights here, and hated to leave!

From the moment Annie, Paul and Jane greeted us, we felt like we were among friends. We booked a king suite overlooking the ocean. Wonderful accommodations, two flat-screen TVs, small fridge, desk in the bedroom. Unique continental breakfast (key lime tarts, fruit kabobs, yogurt and fruit, pastries). Small marina with kayaks, paddle boats. Covered parking too.

This is a 20-something unit boutique hotel, so don't expect all kinds of posh service -- just peace and quiet, and friendly, sweet staff.

All just steps from a lovely little pool with great landscaping, gazebo to provide shade for a swinging chair, a few hammocks in the sand and under the palms. We happily spent a full afternoon lounging in the sun and enjoying the pool.

The hotel is across a tiny bay from Snappers with live entertainment; we brought out our wine and listened to their talented guitarist/vocalist from the hammocks. Wonderful!

Heard a few guests grousing about not being able to see the ocean; Paul was taking care of that the day we left: walking out of each room to see exactly what his guests did; had all the trees trimmed to take advantage of the view.

That's the attention to detail that is the hallmark of Dove Creek!

Room Tip: The king suites with the screened-in porches are very nice.

Everything you are looking for in a resort. Stumbled upon this place and what a find it was. Beautiful surroundings, kayaks, pool, comfortable bed and facilities. Great value and great resort! Looking for a place in Key Largo, I would definitely recommend Dove Creek!

This was a real find during our trip to the keys, everything you could want from a small resort, the rooms are huge, clan and well laid out, and the sunsets across the small harbour are fantastic..and well worth visiting the on site restaurant and bar...great views, a real find
staff very friendly and great buffet breakfast

My fiancee and I went to Key Largo for the weekend and chose to stay at the dove Creek Lodge. What a great decision!

This boutique hotel is a real treat. The staff is friendly and welcoming, the beds are perfect, and the grounds are amazing. What a beautiful location.

On Friday, after dinner, we spent the evening in a hammock and listened to the music from the bar across the cove. They even arrange to shut down the music at 10:00, though we wish it lasted longer.

They have kayaks just waiting for guests to use and bikes available to cruise the key.

Even the other guests were friendly and easy to get along with

Dove Creek is perfect for couples, young and old. You can believe we will be back!!

Room Tip: All the rooms are great, though you may want to ask to avoid those near the lobby.

We had a quick getaway to the keys and we agonized over choosing Dove Creek Lodge or the Hilton or the Marriott. We are so happy we stayed at Dove Creek Lodge! It's not a resort. There's no beach, no spa, no room service. But the staff is so friendly and helpful, between Annie at the front desk and Paul (?) the property manager. They make you feel at home at a place they take pride in. The continental breakfast has some great variety. gotta have the key lime tart! the property is immaculate and well maintained. The place has a laid back relaxed vibe that is all about the keys. Look no further- stay at Dove Creek Lodge!
