“Charming, clean, quiet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2008

Stayed here just one night in the lowest-rate room - a 1 bedroom w/LR and kitchen. Clean and comfortable. Bathroom very small but wasn't a problem for us - might be for someone 6'+. AC worked well, but was noisy. Not enough to keep us awake, but if you're a light sleeper, this could be an issue.

Staff was very nice and helpful - giving us restaurant reccomendations right when we checked in.

Would be nice for 1-2 days of extreme relaxation... nothing to do but swim in the pool and read on your balcony or on the dock and eat at local restaurants. All in all, a nice place to stay.

  • Liked — Great value on room.
  • Disliked — AC noisy.
  • Stayed October 2008, travelled with family

Lets start with the people. I never got the name of the people who were there, but they were all really nice. I liked them. They will give you a list of restaurants that is pretty good.

The room isn't NEW. It's actually pretty old. The whole place is. But it's very clean. The bed very comfortable. I liked the place a lot.

I can't imagine spending more than a couple of days there unless I had kids (nice little pool/beach) or was just sitting and reading.

I made a huge mistake in not going from there to John Pennekamp. It's close and worth the trip.

I'm a fan and I'd go back for a day or so.

  • Liked — Clean, comfy and a little beach
  • Disliked — I didn't find a lot to do right around it.

Just came back from a weekend at Pines and Palms. It was just delightful, right on the beach, lovely pool, adorable little cottages.
Very clean and tidy, '50's style with great updates. Pool and grounds were immaculate, staff more than helpful. Lots of great restaurants very close by. Our unit had a full kitchen which was more than adequate for cooking if you prefer. We will go back again. We saw mostly couples ther, it was very quite the perfect place for a romatic getaway or a sporty weekend.

  • Liked — Right on the water!!

The Good:
Smelled very clean when we arrived, cabins very charming and private. Quiet, even by pool (windows closed). Nice touches like vase of cut bougainvillea flowers on table, lotion and shampoo provided. AC works GREAT! Ice cream man truck visits in the afternoon (12-year-old loved it!). Excellent location, close to restaurants and diving. Private dock, kayaks available. They also provide grills and bikes. Walking distance to Midway Cafe (best coffee and breakfast foods). Newspaper every morning. Plenty of towels. Only guests allowed on property and in the pool or on the dock. Not crowded at ALL. Will be back next year!

The Bad:
Ants. They got worse every day. Not so bad that they were in the bed or clothes, but from 2 or 3 at the sinks to a trail across the floor by the 2nd day.
I see hotels in the Keys 1 step above camping and having to wear shoes in an outdoor shower. I was not disappointed. Tiles in bathroom cracked, chipped. Grout missing and discolored. Mold in corners, probably wet underneath causing the ants. This was better and cleaner than the Hampton Inn but still...shudder...
With 3 people, hard to find places to hang bath towels, pool towels, and diving gear to dry. Bathroom too small with not enough towel racks.
Little lax on the housekeeping. Hate coming back to a hotel after a morning and an afternoon dive (3:30 in the afternoon) and room still not made up and no clean towels. A good daily mopping would have controlled the ants better too.

We love this resort. If you want to get away and relax this is the place. The room was very clean, the bed very cozy and comfortable. The employees could not have been nicer. This is not a hustle, bustle hotel with tons of people. It is very low key. You can fish, kayak, swim, snorkel or just read on the beach. My husband loved the hammock.The restaurants around the resort are great. Thanks Jim and Sara for a wonderful spot to relax. We will be back.

I've stayed at this hotel at least a dozen times. Great people, private location, dock for your boat, swimming pool, bbq grills, what more do you need for the keys? We had an issue with our boat and the staff couldn't have been more sympathetic. It's not the Ritz Carlton and your not going to get room service but the small resort atmosphere is perfect for the keys.

  • Liked — Staff and location
  • Disliked — Boat docks need side rails installed for easier docking/access

This place is absolutely wonderful. The location is amazing, the cottages are simple and lovely, and the staff is so friendly. It is a wonderful value in a very beautiful place. The owner is very hands-on, and it shows. Pines and Palms is well-maintained, quiet and picturesque.
