We spent Easter weekend (April 18-21) at Ambrosia Key West and were absolutely delighted with this gem of a place! Great room, wonderful staff, awesome location and a good variety of food for breakfast!! We will definitely be back!!

Room Tip: We had the Treetop Too Suite, which we loved. Our neighbours in the Alligator Suite said their room...

Thank you for taking time to review Ambrosia and sharing your holiday weekend with us. As our guest you stayed in Treetop Two one of our most popular suites featuring a large balcony overlooking our beautiful courtyard. I am sure you enjoyed relaxing on the swing taking in the views of our tropical foliage. Thanks for mentioning our breakfast. We offer a complimentary breakfast buffet featuring scrambled eggs, artisan breads, yogurt, waffles, fresh fruit, cereals and much more. Jenny and Marilyn want you to hurry back soon!

We stayed in Katie's Kottage back in November with another couple. Seemed like we had the place to ourselves. The location was perfect for exploring the entire island on the bikes they arranged for us. The breakfast they served poolside was a very nice touch AND it was pretty tasty too. We would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Katie's Kottage is a small, but adequate 2 BR. One of the BRs is on the 2nd floor accessible by...

Thanks for sharing your Ambrosia Experience. As our guest you stayed in Katie’s Kottage perfect for a family getaway or old friends catching up. The French doors in the living room and first floor bedroom open up to our dip pool, I am sure you enjoyed being just steps away. Our breakfast is tasty featuring eggs, bacon, biscuits, waffles, fresh fruit, granola, hard boiled eggs, assorted breads, juices and more. Thank you for being our guest and we look forward to your return trip to Paradise. Best Regards, Tim and the Ambrosia Family

We stayed at the Ambrosia for 5 nights in the Honeymoon Suite. HUGE bathroom, but no sitting area in the room. If bathroom is more important to you than a sitting area, book this one. My parents stayed in the Sailfish suite. We LOVED this suite. Perfect size rooms. Bedroom, bathroom and a very big sitting area with couch, chairs, tv, etc. Our friends stayed in a pool room. This room was MORE than enough room for two! Right by the pool and close to the morning breakfast and tables. The Honeymoon and Sailfish suites were across the street from the pools and breakfast area. Speaking of breakfast - AWESOME! Hot eggs, bacon, sausage, breads, muffins, fruit, coffee, juices - all included with the price of your room. There was parking for our rented scooters. They made sure to have a parking space for my parents when they arrived (they are elderly) so they didn't have to walk far - thank you Ambrosia for that! The staff was awesome all the way around! Kudos to Ambrosia! You helped make my birthday celebration all the more special. We will be back!

My wife and I spent four wonderful nights and five days at the Ambrosia at the end of March. It was absolutely great. This is our second stay at Ambrosia and can guarantee that we will be back again. Everything is just what you want for a relaxing getaway. Incredible location, super attentive and friendly staff, a great breakfast in the morning and an incredible hideaway feel do to the peaceful and beautiful pool area. I can not recommend the Ambrosia enough. The location is perfect as it is close to so many of the great restaurants of Key West and very close to Duval and the waterfront area.
Superb!

Mike it was a pleasure to welcome you both back to Ambrosia. As our guest you stayed in our two-story town-home Bob’s Place just off of our dip pool featuring a full kitchen, living room with a queen sleeper sofa and a spiral staircase that leads to the queen bedroom. I am sure you enjoyed a peaceful evening or two relaxing in the hammock overlooking our lush tropical gardens. Thanks for mentioning our location. We are nestled on a quiet tree-lined street steps from all of the must see attractions. Tina and Jenny want you to hurry back soon. Best Regards, Tim and the Ambrosia Family

I just returned from a 3 night stay at Ambrosia on business to Key West. The location is so nice--walking distance to everything. After the staff graciously got me a parking spot right in front of the inn, I never moved my car until I checked out. The grounds are beautiful and very relaxing. The rooms are eclectic and unique (I stayed in two--Alligator Suite and Zeke's retreat). I was comfortable and rested well in both. The staff is so friendly with restaurant recommendations and other helpful advice. The only reason this doesn't get five stars from me is the breakfast. It was a little underwhelming (serving it in the tiny gazebo limits what they can offer) but this did not detract from the overall experience. Thanks Ambrosia!

Aaron thanks for the flattering remarks you had to say about our little slice of paradise. Whether you are traveling on business or pleasure Ambrosia is second to none. We are located on a picturesque tree lined one-way street. We are just a block and half away from Duval Street and within walking distance to the Hemingway House, Mallory Square and the Historic Seaport so leave the car keys in the room! Whether you were unwinding after a long day of meetings or had to catch up on some work I am sure you enjoyed the privacy and the distraction-free atmosphere our Alligator Suite and Zeke's Retreat offer.

We are so sorry to hear that you found our pool-side gazebo and breakfast less than you expected. We never mean to compare our breakfast to Sarabeth's, Blue Heaven or other wonderful breakfast establishments in KW but we do feel that compared to any other B&B or hotel on the island that serves a complimentary breakfast, we absolutely stand out. Even the most respectable B&B's in KW serve only a continental breakfast at hours that don't suit many of the fun loving visitors to our fair island. Countless contributors to on-line rating sites have found our breakfast to be a remarkable part of the Ambrosia Experience. Our breakfast is available from 8:30 am – 10:30 am featuring eggs, bacon, sausage and gravy, biscuits, waffles, fresh fruit, cereals…just to name a few. Of course if everyone shows up at the same time it can get crowded.

Aaron as with any guest, what you think is important to us. Your feedback here on TripAdvisor helps us understand what we do right and what we need to focus on. We look forward to welcoming you next month.

Best Regards, Tim and the Ambrosia Family

A very well situated and friendly place. Close to city center and restaurants and a staff who really cares about the guests. The complimentary breakfast, served on the poolside, adds a lot to the relaxed atmosphere.

We enjoyed 6 nights at the Ambrosia and loved every minute! The central location is perfect just off of Duval St, the room was comfortable (including fridge, microwave and Keurig coffee maker), the breakfast served out by the pool was substantial and delicious (great locally made breads), the grounds/pools were nicely maintained (including towels, suntan lotion and bug spray) and the staff was extremely helpful (restaurant recommendations, arranging bike rentals). We loved it!
