Reviewed 27 July 2013 via mobile

We got a good rate booking thru the dive shop, since we had dives planned. They can get you the best rates. It's a good central location. The beach & pool were nice. Rooms were a little outdated, but we're ok. No elevators. We stayed on the 3rd floor. Not fun lugging heavy suitcases up 2 flights of stairs in the heat. Staff at pool bar & house keeping seemed a little inattentive other than when it wa time to leave. They never showed up to clean the room until I put the sing in the lock tha I needed housekeeping late in the day. When it was time to leave, the late check out was only one extra hour. I was running 30 mins late because of a dive. They came to my room 3x in that 1/2 hr to see if I left yet. Room key stopped working 1x. I went to the Libby to have reset. Another guest there asked if it was my 1st time with key problems. He said happens a lot.

Stayed in 300s and rooms were recently renovated and clean. Linens were clean. Didn't leave the resort for the day. Snorkeled and drank $2 landsharks all day. Perfect. Feed the tarpons at robbies down the st. Only negative , which is no fault of the resort , was the 80$ 30 min jet ski rental. What a laugh. Because of this you will usually only see him riding them back and forth doing skid outs in the water tho.

The rooms were clean & smelled like citrus, the bed & linens comfortable, nice private balcony overlooking the grounds & the ocean. The grounds were kept up & maintained every day. The staff was courteous & helpful. We were having such a nice, relaxing time, we extended our stay 1 more night...looking forward to managing a return trip.

Room Tip: I highly recommend the ocean view rooms w/ private balcony.

From past visits to the Keys, I have learned not to have large expectations of resorts / hotels. It's the Keys. If you want luxury and take my breath away resorts, don't come to the Keys. This place has a great location. For the Keys, a great beach and pool area. Shula Burger on the property is awesome! Tiki Bar offers great bar expereince in the Keys. This is a great place to get away for a few days, relax, hang out in bathing suits and cover ups. Yes, per other reviews, areas are dated. A/C in my room was average. But it's the Keys! Relax and just soak it up.

We stayed here on a whim while celebrating our engagement. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. The rooms were average but the close proximity to the ocean and walking distance of bars and restaurants onsite were worth it. Next time I will definitely request an ocean view room. Breakfast was not provided complimentary nor was it served at any of the restaurants so that was really our only disappointment. We enjoyed our stay and will be returning!

My husband and I recently attended his class reunion at this resort. They gave us a fabulous group rate and let us hold two of our events there. The rooms were average, but the view of the ocean made up for that. Resort staff go over and above to ensure that the grounds are pristine. Each morning they rake the pea rock and cart the seaweed off and police any trash, so it always looks "postcard" perfect. The resort has a beachfront tiki hut that serves a hearty breakfast with lots of choices and a variety of seafood at lunch. We enjoyed all meals that we got there. There are also several spots around the resort to get tropical drinks all day and enjoy music in the evening. Of course services such as kayak, jet ski ,and boat rentals as well as beach side massages are available. The banquet facilities were nice and the view from the top floor was spectacular. Overall we enjoyed our stay there and hope to attend future reunions at this location.

Room Tip: If you get an ocean side room do not select the ground floor. Too much foot traffic and noise. The...

We stayed here for our honeymoon October 2012. We had such an amazing time!

The staff was beyond nice! The rooms were very clean and were cleaned every day. The beach was groomed every morning. The entire resort was clean, well maintained, and recently updated according to a local. There was so much to do at the resort (charter fishing, rental boats, water sports, pool, beach, music, bars, restaurants), you really didn't have to leave!

There aren't many hotels/resorts in the keys that have a beach onsite due to the reef. And after driving around seeing if there were any other nice places to stay, gotta say, I'd only stay here! This is by no means a high end resort, it's in the keys! But it was a wonderful, relaxing inexpensive week!

The room was a little on the small side after the king size bed took up all the space. The best part about our room was the huge walk in shower with two shower heads. The toilet had a seperate room, which was nice. Bed was super comfy! Actually returned home and bought the same one! The beach was right outside our room.

We had breakfast and lunch everyday at the raw bar. The staff there were super pleasant. Food was delicious and affordable! You have to have a keylime colada!! Wow!

In the evening we'd do some sight-seeing then back to the Postcard Inn for some drinks and music.

The only complaint I can think of would be we had a couple ants in our room, but not enough to bother us by getting into anything or complain to the staff about it.

The locals in Islamorada were super nice and helpful! Thanks to them we found places to snorkel, fish, great restaurants to eat our catch, and places to see.

We will be back again very soon!
