“Had a great time at the Wyndham!”
Reviewed 1 September 2004

We stayed at the Wyndham Reach July 31 - August 5 for our Honeymoon. I had also read the reviews of it and before we got there I was weary. However, I thought the place was very nice. We had no problems with our room, we were upgraded upon arrival after getting in good with the front desk. We were shuttled from the airport (their shuttles are very worn and old) and got to our room almost immediately. The pool was not too crowded and it never closed, so we opted for some late night swims. We didn't even know there was a hot tub until we passed it one night walking. It is hidden and packed with people. The beach was dirty from seaweed so we didn't even go there. We ate at Shula's and spent $130 and we didn't even get a full course meal. Everything in Key West and the Reach is pricey. Sand's has good food as well. The only thing we would have changed was the fact that the resort is a mile walking distance from all the sites and happening bars, etc. We walked 14 miles the first few days and then decided to take cabs which are about $6-$7 to get to Mallory Square. The bell boy will call you a cab. Tip everyone!! Everything around us closed at 10 p.m. We would stay there again but the distance factor might make us change our minds.

Reviewed 28 August 2004

Booked a four night stay at the Reach before reading all the negative reviews. Since it was short notice, I was unable to cancel my reservation. The hotel is about to undergo a much needed 1.5 million renovation this fall/winter 2004. I had signed up for the Wyndham club on line, which is supposed to give you a few freebies upon arrival, such a two welcome drinks and cheese tray. I called to ask about it and was told it would be delivered later, which it never was. There are only two elevators and one was out of order. I was told that it had been a problem for several months. Our room was on the 5th floor, the farthest room away from the only working elevator. The walk was endless just to get to the elevator, which became hassle. The room furnishings are worn and somewhat soiled-such as the upolstery on the sofa and chairs. I asked for an 8 am wake up call this morning, only to have the phone ring at 4 am instead. I had to recall the front desk to re-request the correct wake-up time. The front desk help in the afternoon is less than helpful and not terribly pleasant, although the morning front desk help is more accomodating and cheerful. We've been to Key West 9 times and will never stay there again or recommend it to anyone. It's too pricy for mediocre service and accomodations.
