We were looking for a quick getaway from Fort Lauderdale. The grounds are meticulously well kept (like Disney World), beautifully landscaped, the rooms were very spacious. We could have invited another couple. It had a modern kitchen, clean furnishings and two very nice balconies. I called after seeing an on-line ad. They offered the room at $329 and said it was a special AAA reduced price. It wasn't until I mentioned the on-line price of $279 that they offered it to me... so beware. Nice and relaxing, you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Clean, Quiet, tropical and an okay value

Due to an unexpected delay, we checked in at 10:30 p.m. on a week night. We requested a late check out because we were scuba diving at 8 a.m. the next morning. We were told to check back in the morning. At 7 a.m., we were told they could not permit a late checkout. I feel that no effort whatsoever was made to accomodate our need. I find it hard to believe that they could not push the cleaning of our one unit back a couple hours to allow us to shower and see the facilities during the day. In addition, they were very short with me.

We travel frequently and I will not visit this resort in the future. Very disappointed. I was really looking forward to seeing the resort. I changed our reservation at the last minute because it looked so special.

Room Tip: Don't expect great customer service.

From the reviews, I was expecting much better.

Houses are beautiful , but there is no beach and the service from staff is average. For such resort and price, I was expecting much more. I also agree with JOanned1998 comment on the iguanas, very big and excrementing all over…and no staff to clean up. The furniture by the pool was old, people left drinks by the pool, on tables…not very clean.

Not a four star at all.

Room Tip: The beach is non existent: it is small and filled with algae and weeds. Hence everyone goes into the...

From the time we were greeted at the front desk until the time of checkout, this property met all of our vacation needs. The grounds are lovely and well maintained. We stayed in the two bedroom water view units which satisfied all of our needs. The downstairs had a nice kitchen and living room and the upstairs had two small bedrooms and bathrooms. The unit had a washer, dryer and laundry soap which were wonderful. Even though there was construction and we were close to the pool, there was never any loud noise. It was very hot during our stay so we didn't get to enjoy the porch and balcony as much as anticipated but they were both roomy and lovely spots to rest. The pool area was spacious, had plenty of seating and provided lots of shade. There were many iguanas roaming around but there weren't any insects or bugs........so I'll take the iguanas! This was a very relaxing and enjoyable few days and we will definitely consider this property on our return to the Florida Keys.

Room Tip: The ocean view rooms had lovely unobstructed views.

This is a beautiful quiet resort with great accommodations. However, the number and size of the iguanas near the pools was a bit disconcerting. I live in Florida and am accustomed to Florida wildlife, but even for me the iguanas were a bit gruesome. Several were well over two feet long including their tails and wandered freely around pool decks, leaving droppings. We saw them jump into the pools which caused a mass exodus,....not to mention children running near droppings and wondering if they carry it into pool on their feet.....?
We had some other minor problems: not enough towels or toilet paper provided, parking very far from our room ( #6), and an issue with getting the dishwasher to run. However, none of those would keep us from coming back. The iguana issue will however, and we will not come back, nor recommend to anyone until they are controlled.

Room Tip: the rooms are great, beds wonderful. check the resort map before booking to see how far you will be...

What can I say? This place was so far removed from it's sister resort at Parrot's Key. There was a mix up on our booking (totally my fault) but that didn't stop Summer from helpfully sorting us out with the type of room we had booked, an Ocean Front Villa.

My partners first comment as we entered the villa was "I could live here". The service throughout the HYotel was first class, from Summer at Reception to Michelle at the Tiki Bar, it was just perfect.

We stayed 4 nights and although we do like to eat out and try different places we ate one night at the Butterfly Cafe and it was one of the best meals we had during our two weeks in Florida

Room Tip: I imagine that internally they are all much the same but the Ocean Front rooms are superb. There...

I have stayed at this resort several times. My most recent stay, showed the property to be run down. White wicker chairs around the property with holes in the arms of the chairs. why bother putting out these, they should be at the dump. The large pool has mismatched furniture, and the inside of the units have torn slip covers and mold around the doors.
I hope with the new management company they will take pride in bring this back to a 4 star property.

Room Tip: Ask if there is construction going on before booking any hotel. They were doing construction the 9...
