If you love a beautiful sunset and enjoy lounging by the water then you will enjoy this resort.
Our family flew into Florida from Texas for our neices wedding. We spent four days at the resort. We stayed in one of the cottages, they are charming, decorated in sophisticated colors with outside comfortable deck furniture on each raised platform. We had our morning coffee on our deck which was covered by traditional bamboo and thatched roofs. The properties settings was very relaxing-very well manicured and kept clean. A male peacock roamed the property like he owned the place-fun to see such a beautiful bird so very up close and personal. I would like to comment on the staff. They were excellent-honest, polite and very helpful. Juan who is the main property grounds keeper, while cleaning early in the morning he found by the pool a small fabric bag with a very expensive camera in it-with out hesitation he went to our cottage and asked if the camera belonged to anyone in our party. I and my husband travel often and never have we seen a staff as honest as the staff at this resort. We always tip well for great service-hope you do the same. I would like to add that the area has a lot of very fine restaurants-we had the grooms dinner (30 of us) on the deck of the Pilot's House, located on the Atlantic side in a Marina. I had strawberry grouper with macadamian nuts it was fresh and cooked to perfection. Note: remember to always bring bug spray.

Room Tip: We had cottage #5 it had a particle ocean view. If I went back I would like cottage #9 on the corner...

I thought twice before reviewing this place as I want to keep it for myself. Located at the top of the keys this place is a (needed!) quiet and shady resort with a beach and small harbour looking out onto the western Gulf with fantastic sunsets. It is located well for all the Keys attractions and has a real Southern Florida/Caribik feel to it. You can hire clean and reasonably well appointed Suites and Villas at reasonable prices, relax and use the gas barbecues on site during the sunset. The owners are very hospitable, they offer free Kayaks (we used these a lot to paddle around with the occasional wild dolphins in their little bay area). The one pain was the air conditioning unit which was noisy and not easy to control. We were told they were due to be replaced. If these were fixed I would not hesitete to return there. We really felt we were on holiday.

Room Tip: For breakfast go to Chads around the corner. Fantastic experience.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Atlantic Bay Resort for a long weekend away. We were very impressed with how updated and new the cottages were. The office manager told us everything is currently being renovated. The kitchen had stainless steel appliances. The bathroom was brand new tile throughout and great water pressure. The cottages have nice porches in front with new patio furniture which was great for hanging out and grilling dinner. The unit had all the basics and the resort has kayaks and paddle boards to use as well. If you are looking for a more private area to stay, this is a perfect option. We will definitely be going back!

We really enjoyed our stay over the weekend. This place is clean and quiet. The beach is beautiful and has lots of shade. My daughter loved looking for fish and catching hermit crabs on the beach. The pool is heated. We spent the weekend swimming and relaxing. This is less like a hotel and more like renting an apartment for the weekend. Just know that whatever you want (drinks, snacks, food, etc.) you need to bring/shop for, or you'll have to go out. The efficiency we stayed in had a kitchen, a pull out couch in the living room and a king sized bed in the bedroom (Although the two "rooms" are separated, there is no door in between). We brought food and snacks and saved ourselves a ton by eating breakfast and lunch in the room. There is a Winn Dixie less than a mile from the hotel, so you can stock up. The last night we were there, we ordered pizza from Chad's (less than 1/2 block walk up the street) and ate it on the beach while we watched the sunset.

There are a few things I would recommend to the hotel. First, there should be some way to separate the bedroom from the living room in the efficiencies. there is a wall but there is no door to shut. That would be nice for a little more privacy. Also, there should be a TV in the bedroom as well as the living room. Since there was only one in the living room, husband and I were forced to watch Spongebob all weekend since our daughter was camped out on the pull out couch! :)

Also, I would love it if the hotel had a little store/snack bar. If you decided you want a soda and you didn't bring any, you're out of luck.

We will definitely be returning to this hotel!

My wife and I discovered this little piece of heaven over eighteen years ago, and it is the only place we will stay.
With the new owners, it's only gotten more perfect and pristine.
The rooms are lovely, the beach is perfect, and the service is both friendly and professional.
It's definitely a little hide away, a place to get away.....

We stayed in three Tropical efficiencies. They've been recently renovated and were very clean and comfortable. The landscaping is gorgeous, the staff is friendly and helpful and the amenities are just what you want in the Keys. Be sure to check out the sunset. Spectacular!

Quiet, peaceful setting. I stayed here with my spouse and 4 teenagers. They loved having the excellent wifi connection right on the beach. There was a diversity of guests. However different, we all were seeking the serenity that this resort offers. We found it well appointed and very clean and updated. We left the Hilton resort as this resort offered so much more. We will definitely return here to vacation again. You won't find better service and a more peaceful setting anywhere else.
Very Satisfied Guest,
