“Small, peaceful, quiet with a great view and friendly staff.”
Reviewed 9 March 2010

We decided to visit the Keys for a few days before a cruise out of Miami (an hours drive). The hotel is great. It is on a small quiet beach with a couple of piers. Chairs and hammocks on the beach are always available. The pool overlooks the sea. Good continental breakfast. This old historic hotel has been renovated and added on to. Our room was the best, with a large patio and a wrap around view of the water and garden from the inside. The staff made us feel right at home and I would love to go back. My husband made a great decision when he booked this. It was very romantic.

It was a quick trip to the Keys, leaving our 7 year old with his grandparents in Boca, and the best Valentine's Day we ever had. Cocktails at Snappers in Key Largo, dinner at Marker 88, and a gorgous, clean room with a deck that looked out onto a little sandy beach, garden and the bay. Our king sized bed was luxurious, and the mini fridge prefect for a bottle of wine. Continental breakfast was a bit of a disappointment but the afternoon at the pool was not!! All in all, a beautiful place to get away to.

The hotel was great. We got a really good rate and they also gave us a free room upgrade to a patio with a stunning view of the bay. While the grounds of the hotel feel very secluded and the rooms were well kept - including a fab shower. The staff were all very friendly and accomodated a very late check in! We can't wait to stay here again

his is a tricky review for me to write. The Inn gets 5 stars for the quality of the people who run the place, their interest in good service, and their overall helpfulness. But the Inn's website describes the place as one of the Keys' "most unique luxury beachfront hideaways." I'm sorry, but despite the rave reviews written on many sites, there is no way in the world that this can be considered a "luxury" resort. And at $399/night for the 2-room "suite" with the kitchen during the high season, it's vastly overpriced. The unit I was in gets one star (the bathroom gets 0 stars). The setting and outside area get 3.5 stars.

Here is what I found in my 2-bedroom unit. The kitchen area is simple and useful, with a small refrigerator, stove, and sink. Dishes, cutlery, and a few coffee filters are provided. Nothing else - not even salt and pepper. If you do intend to make simple hot breakfasts, you'll have to provide everything (most places I've stayed @ with kitchens offer a few basics including some spices).

The Inn looks its age in the rooms, which are tiled for easy cleaning. There is one bedside light, which isn't very bright, so if you both are sharing a bed and both want to read, be sure to bring an extra reading light. The bathroom was especially need in of renovation - last one may have been 20 to 30 years ago. Grout has darkened a lot, with blackening of tiles in the corner. There's no caddy or any place to hang shampoo. A tiny window provides ventilation. Lighting is fluorescent. No hooks in the bathroom, so your clothes have to be piled onto the floor or onto towel racks. Black mold (?) shows underneath the toilet rim (not someplace I normally look, but it was visible each time I opened the bathroom door due to the small bathroom size and angle of the toilet).

In the living room, the "couch" is actually another bed, so you can't really sit comfortably on it without adding lots of pillows from the bedrooms. All in all, I viewed the interior rooms as ones I'd expect to find in a budget type motel in most parts of the country - not by any stretch of the imagination a "luxury resort" room. Had I been told that was the case, I'd have been less disappointed. The noise level from the highway is fine - it's a quiet place. Thin walls and floors mean that if you have loud upstairs "friends" you'll hear every movement.

The Keys don't have the long stretches of beaches found in the Carolinas, or along the west Coast. At the CPI, a small stretch of sand reaches down to the bay, and provides nice seating for watching the boats or the sunset. The Inn provides a paddle boat and kayaks. Small BBQ grills can toast marshmallows and hot dogs. Continental breakfast in the "tiki" hut consists of a variety of muffins, apples, juice and coffee.

On our second day we ended up in Duck Key where we found the Hawk Cay resort. Based on the setting and the lobby areas, that place can call itself a "luxury resort." The Coconut Palm Inn would be better described as a small older hotel on the bay, with vintage lighting fixtures and bathrooms begging for an update.

We found Coconut Palm Inn on TripAdvisor and decided to stay there based on the photos and the great reviews. What a great choice we made! We arrived after midnight, and had notified Dana and Trish that we would be there late. The directions to our room were right where they promised, and our room was ready for us.

We stayed in the Coconut Palm Suite the first night, which was the only room available, and it was beautiful and large, right on the beach with a beautiful view of the pool and the bay.

The other nights we stayed in room 1, which is on the end of the inn with a glass door that faced the bay and a screened porch and other windows that faced the "garden" - the parking area, which is nicely landscaped.

The location of this place, right on the water, with hammocks and beach chairs galore and a nice pool, is the main attraction. We had a great time relaxing on the hammocks and by the pool, and watching the sun set over the bay in the evening. Breakfast was served on the beach every morning, a nice selection of muffins, scones, cereal, fruit, oatmeal, juice, milk, coffee, and tea. How lovely it was to sit by the water and enjoy breakfast every day. The beds in both rooms were very comfy, and we never heard noise from other guests when we were in either room. The rooms were both very nicely decorated. The only downside to this place was the plumbing - you can tell it is an older property - one day I had almost no hot water for my shower, and we also had some problems with slow drains in the other shower. Not enough of a problem to keep me from recommending the place though!

I highly recommend Coconut Palm Inn, and we will definitely stay there again on our next visit to the Keys.

We enjoyed our stay very much. It fell right in to what we like to do; relax, get warm, read, slow down and enjoy the simple life. We also enjoyed the area, in particular the restaurants. We had a favorite place where we went more than several times to join the locals for happy hour. We really enjoyed meeting people not from the US and we thanked each of them for coming to Florida instead of New York or LA. It was amazing to us how well we slept. We enjoyed having our pet with us.

Great reviews on trip advisor but I can't have been at the same place.Arrived late after a 9 hour flight . Had already contacted the hotel about where to pick up the key. No problem,good emails everything was sorted out but horror, no key and nobody about. Eventually contacted somebody and was told they didn't expect us . Anyhow got a room. No suggestion of a partial refund for all the stress they put us through. Room was OK , small and dark but for the very high price very disappointing. Highest price I've ever paid in the States and certainly not worth it.
Breakfast was outside in the cold Florida weather with boring food.
Views and setting stunning.
