Reviewed 28 July 2014

We rented a one-bedroom cottage, and it was great. Had two full bathrooms, and we loved the porch. We could sit out there and drink beers and watch the boats go by (we were upgraded to a "partial ocean view") The staff were all very helpful and nice. The spa was AMAZING! I got a massage and loved it so much I went back again. You have your own full bath with shower off of your treatment room, and a private patio where you can sit. We were disappointed in Latitudes. The windows overlooking the sunset were streaky and smudged. The steaks didn't really have much flavor. Overall, not nearly what we were expecting based on reviews we read here. Service was okay, but nothing to write home about.

When in town, definitely try The Porch for a laid back bar serving craft beers. We also liked Charlie Mac's. They have wonderful food and the atmosphere is laid back.

We travel a lot with our two teenage kids and this was a perfect property. The two bedroom cottage gave plenty of space and privacy and kept the family together. The exclusive island feel is excellent and quiet. You can enjoy the nightlife and of Duval St. and then escape to this island paradise for a quiet relaxing night. The pool is nothing special but is clean, the beach is beautiful but rocky and hard on your feet... but we felt relaxed and treated well by all of the staff. The restaurant is great and the bar is wonderful as well. Sunsets do not get much better... Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Try to avoid any cottage that backs up to the pool or has a pool view. Ocean front or one back from...

My wife and I stayed at Sunset Key the week of July 13th. This was our second stay at this resort and like the last we really enjoyed it.
The restaurant onsite Latitudes has excellent service and food. The only hiccup with our stay was the first evening when there was a blackout.
When we got back to the Island after dinner on Duval we were unable to get into our room as there was no electricity. After sitting in the lobby for
over an hour I asked for some ice water which I was told they did not have. There were not enough seats in the lobby so we asked if we could
sit in the bar but was told we could not since it was closed. The night manager eventually showed at 12:30 am with keys and got us into our rooms.
Along with no AC our room was in the 90s and the fact that they were working on a cable just outside our bedroom door made it very difficult to sleep.
I always carry a flashlight with me when I travel and thankfully I do, since we were all told the resort did not have any to lend us. The Resort needs to
have some sort on contingency plan when something like this happens. Also there was no mention of any sort of compensation for the
inconvenience. Overall we had a good stay at Sunset Key.

We went with three others couples for a three night trip. We all enjoyed Key West in general but fell in LOVE with the island! From the 2 bedroom cottages to the private beach and pool everything was perfect! Latitudes is one of the most romantic restaurants we have ever eaten in! The muffin baskets were just icing on the cake!

Very clean and peaceful. You can enjoy Key West but be able to escape the noise and crowds. Pros: beach was clean, cottage (3 bedroom) was huge, staff was very friendly, loved the morning basket of muffins and fruit, ferry that took you to and from Key West was very punctual & it is a short ride; free wi-fi, we rented a boat and the dock was great being able to board it at the resort (rented it from another location); they provided a great supply of coffee and real creamer not powder

cons: every time you want to go to Key West you have to wait on the ferry, but that is the price you pay for a quiet atmosphere

Hints: take a collapsible cooler so that you can take perishable items to your cottage from Key West; we did the grocery service which was fine but I like picking out my food items myself; they provide beach towels; if you need a taxi - sometimes the ferry captain can call ahead and get you one; if you arrive early - leave your luggage at the Westin at the Marina and they will take it to your cottage while you enjoy Key West

This is the place to stay in Key West. A short boat ride to a private island with beautiful cottages. We stayed in a two bedroom cottage. The service was excellent, the muffin basket every morning was delicious. The beach is small but does the trick. Bring water shoes since the shore line is full of rocks and hurt to walk on. It is away from the crowds of people in the town of Key West. Very private and yet you can be in the middle of the party on Duval Street quickly and easily. Park your car at the Westin and never use it again until you leave. The concierge took care of all our reservations, tours and water sports. It is worth every penny!!!

Room Tip: Don't pay the higher price for ocean front. Book an ocean view and you will have a great view w...

I reserved a 1-bedroom cottage some weeks ago, and mentioned that we would be celebrating my girlfriend's 30th Bday and that I was planning to propose at Latitudes that evening. Upon arrival I discovered that we had been upgraded to a 3-bedroom cottage!
The accommodation and the whole island in general is just dreamy. My fiancee loved it, and the staff at Latitudes restaurant could not have been more accommodating/helpful. We will definitely be back, whenever I can afford to spend that sort of money again!
The only issue we had with the whole place was that the beach is pretty rocky when you initially try to get into the water, just because all these little stones seem to wash up on shore. Other than that the place was flawless!
