in Key West on the eastern edge of the Florida Keys on a channel
connecting the Atlantic to the Gulf of Mexico.
Not a mega resort by any standards with only 118 rooms but it does occupy a prime piece of waterfront on the waters edge. Excellent waterfront location in Key West. Since the recent upgrades the resort has improved it's ranking further as well. IPods all round and the new renovated bathrooms look great. Here you also get good access to the many hire opportunities of the area, marina and the nice but modestly sized beach.
Overall this is a good choice and facilities are kept well maintained from the poolside waterfall to the well serviced restaurants.
Guestrooms are spacious, tropical themed guest houses that feature wicker furnishings. They are in two-bedroom condos that have kitchens and jetted tubs. Screened balconies overlook either the Gulf or the gardens.
Reviewers note that there are not a lot of sport activities available here (ex. volleyball, basketball) but the grounds are kept beautifully, it's a great "home away from home" and good value.
