We just had our wedding, February 6th at Coconut Cove and cannot rave enough about the resort. Paul & Magda the resort owners, and their staff could not do enough for us and our guests. We had the whole resort booked with our family and friends and no request was to big or small. We had unseasonable cold weather for our wedding week and thank goodness for the main house lobby. That became the meeting place, during our 45* days/ nights. We had our music set up and partied the colder days/ nights away. Our wedding day was magnificent. The resort was transformed and looked beautiful. The food was amazing, our guests were in awe with the selection and level of service. If you are looking for a laid back wedding, where you are as relaxed as your guests and are looking to thoroughly enjoy yourself this is the place. If you enjoy a relaxed atmosphere and vacationing in the Keys, or Montauk, NY this is the place to have your wedding and to vacation.

Our daughter had her Wedding at Coconut Cove last weekend. We had 39 guests stay on-site from Thursday thru Sunday! January 15th thru January 19th.

Prior to the Wedding, I was a little nervous reading the reviews from other guests at Coconut Cove.

The rooms aren't the Hilton, but the scenery and the hospitality made up for that. The rooms are old, but they are kept up. The rooms with the kitchens are fully equiped with everything you would need to cook with. I know some of the reviews stated there was no maid service, not true, our rooms were made up/cleaned everyday. It's a Mom & Pop Resort....it's absolutely enjoyable, relaxing and a very friendly/family place. We absolutely LOVED it.....

On Thursday evening, all 39 of us went to Chilli Willie's for dinner. It was excellent food, reasonable priced and the staff treated us like family.

On Friday, we chartered a fishing boat for some of the guests and they had a blast and caught a ton of fish.

Friday night was the Rehersal Dinner/Bonfire. We the parents put on a barbeque dinner for all our guests. Which turned out well.

Saturday was the Wedding. The whole Resort took on a new wonderful look! Paul and Manga (Owners) treated us like family. Lori (Manager) was just as nice and helpful.

The dinner was outstanding. We had black tie staff serve hors d'oeuvres prior to dinner and they were delicious as well. The bar staff and wait staff were very professional and very accomadating and very friendly too.

The cake was made at Bobs Buns along with chocolate brownies. The cake was key lime and it was delicious along with the brownies.

Manga designed the flowers, which were absolutely beautiful. She also did the photos. She arrived in the honeymoon suite at 3:30 p.m. and stayed with us to the end of the Wedding taking photos. She went up and above with the photo taking.

After dinner, we had the DJ. We danced for hours, while Manga was still taking photos. Then it was time for the Bride and Groom to have their first dance on the Beach. Once the music started and they started dancing, Paul was off in his boat shooting off fireworks. It was absolutely breath taking. All the guests were so surprised since most of them weren't aware of this going to done.

The bartenders were excellent. Everything was top shelf! The young crownd loved the barmaid. She was fun, upbeat and just loved her job! She made the night awesome as well.....

We also took our convertible car on the beach for photos. Anything we wanted to do, Paul and Mango let us do. I would recommend all guests stay on-site if you have your Wedding here. You have the whole Resort to yourself and guests. It's one big party!

The Pool area is absolutely beautiful. Although, when we were there it was the coldest it's ever been in the keys. The pool isn't heated, but I guess being in Florida Keys, most pools aren't.

I know I've read prior reviews about the rooms being dirty, ants and lots of cats. So NOT TRUE. Yes, the rooms are old, but their maintained and theres maid service everyday. Yes, there are two cats that roam the grounds, but they leave you alone. And as far as ants, there were no ants in the room we stayed in.

Our daughter stayed in the hotel part, in the honeymoon suite and it was absolutely beautiful. Theres a balcony attached to the room for beautiful picture taking.

All in all, I would recommend Coconut Cove Resort. Theres no on-site bar or eatery, but with stores so close and the cottages fully stocked with everything you would need to prepare food, it worked out well.

The owners and staff at Coconut Cove really showed us a good time, excellent food and were so accomadating and friendly. It's a laid back spot, which was so relaxing.

We have a lot of beautiful memories from Coconut Cove. It was the most amazing Wedding ever!!!

Both my wife and I have travelled all around the world and stayed in a lot of very nice places. This is one place worth a visit. Beautiful location very clean and the staff excellent. When we arrived the lady that welcomed us was very kind and nothing was a bother to make sure we were happy during our stay. We latter found out that the lady was Magda Bates who owns Coconut Cove with her husband Paul. The Pool and the grounds are all designed by Mr Bates and if you do stay here, I think you will agree it is a touch of class. Well priced and well worth a visit.
We will definately be back. I belive weddings are a speciality and no wonder with the beautiful surroundings

I needed a beak from work and decided to head for the Keys! I looked on the Islamorada Chamber of Commerce website and found Coconut Cove Resort & Marina. It was beyond my expectations, moderately priced with 5 Star service. Captain's Quarters are 60's Florida Keys but very clean and comfortable after a long day of fishing. Very quaint marina which gets you to the fishing quickly. The whole property is very well kept with million dollar views. I'll be spending any free time at the Coconut Cove!!

I could write a book - but we'll keep it to the point!

My husband and I have been coming to the Keys for six years now. We are Floridians in and out! Every chance we get, we are there for the water, fish, lobster, and most of all the environment. To get away from the hussle and bussle!

We have stayed in MANY places throughout the Keys and once we found Coconut Cove - that was it. At first they were re-doing the pool area and some of the rooms. However, once we walked around and saw how abundant the tropical life was and the hospitality we fell in love. The resort is just amazing and quante.

There is a true feeling and atmosphere of what the Keys are Really are and has such a nature and true tropical feel to it.

Coconut Cove offers luxery rooms with jacuzzi (for those sweet weekend get aways) and small cottages for longer stays (to have the kitchen and more room for all the fishing gear)!

Every holiday we can, we go and choose to stay at Coconut Cove because, for the two of us - Coconut Cove is our Keys Family. Every person is so welcoming and stop to talk with us.

The family, Magda and Paul, make us feel as if we are guests in their own home - and truly we are.

Between the beautiful waterfall pool, canopied trails to the water, lush acreage of swaying palm trees, fun activities and fireworks, or the sucluded feeling of 'being the only one there', and the abundance of wildlife - This is our absolute favorite home away from home!!!

If I could call this our second home - I would.

My wife and I dreamed of a perfect beach wedding with whatever we wanted and could dream of. Paul and Magda gave us exactly what we were looking for. Besides having the whole property to ourselves for the week before the wedding we were able to add anything we wanted and everything we asked for or needed was taken care of asap. The honeymoon suite was wonderful and clean. The wedding was the most beautiful ever and the food was fantastic, even though we asked for some dishes they had never made before. The DJ was perfect and our special day could not have been any better. People are still talking about it and its been weeks. There are a list of people who attended and now want to get married At Coconut Cove. I highly reccommend this resort and even more so for a wedding!
