We just returned from a 4-day stay at La Te Da. What we can offer from our stay is nothing short of fantastic. As ALL places in an island resort area, of course they could use a little updating, but as many people have already said, who goes there to spend every minute in the room? The important thing is that the rooms were spotless, and if you needed anything the staff was more than accommodating to make sure you received it. Mark has done an excellent job of finding and retaining some of the best staff that Key West has to offer. Every single person there was friendly and outgoing.
The pool does have a little debris from the tree's above, there were people on hand several times a day to remove the leaves, but impossible to manage full time. The pool is private, and is 24 hours. It is heated and feels great at 2 am!
We had breakfast and dinner at La Te Da. For breakfast we tried the free meals, which were great. But we also tried the breakfast special one morning, which was delicious. The dinner setting was romantic and the food was prepared perfectly. We ordered specials as well as from the menu (There were 6 of us). Everyone loved his or her food. Our waiter even went the extra mile to accommodate a drink my wife loves. They didn’t have all of the ingredients on hand, but he made sure she received it.
We probably had the most fun with the bar staff. We started our afternoons with drinks at the bar. The bartender was extremely funny/friendly, and made great drinks too! We were told that their Bloody Marys are all home made, but we never had a chance to try one. The La Te Da Lemonade is a great summer drink, and the martini’s come with a very generous “side-car” all of which make for the perfect start of a day.
The only negative that we could say about this place is that walking from the hotel to the bars at the other side of the island does get a bit tiring. This problem could be solved by just drinking there, taking a cab, or scooters downtown etc.
We would no doubt only stay at La Te Da the next time we visit Key West. We could not imagine staying somewhere else. (We have been to Key West 3 times total, this is the first review we have written.)
