Florida Keys resorts for Families

Best Florida Keys Family Resort Where Kids Stay Free: Oceans Edge Resort & Marina Key West

This new Florida Keys hotel, is run by a family and completely geared towards families. Kids can enjoy six huge pool, family friendly restaurants and easy access to the islands: accompanied by parents of course. 

What we love about this new resort is that it seems to have revived some old charm of Key West as a family vacation destination. 

Note: At the time of writing kids stay free, and I don't expect they will change this anytime soon given the commitment to family vacations.
