Room very clean and just right and cozy for two. Only complaint was the water edge has lots of shells and rocks and we didn't have ocean shoes which are needed if you want to go into the ocean. Would definitely go back.

Hello and thank you so much for your comments. Sorry about the shells, they do tend to wash up on the beach from time to time. Other than that we're happy to hear that you will be returning again in the near future and we look forward to having you back. More

We booked this last minute and found a gem! We stayed in a ocean front King suite with a beautiful view. Everything looked recently updated including granite countertop in the kitchen and the entire room was very clean. It did have a nice big shower but lacked a tub, which was ok for our short stay.

Had a fabulous 3 day stay here at Glunz Ocean Beach. Sun loungers galore....the pool is the warmest pool I have experienced - just great. Lovely food at Havana next door, the waitresses just come over to take your order, no need to move! 5 out of 5 for sure! We will definitely come back..... Saunderson family

The location of the hotel is great. Its somewhat in the middle of the Keys, very well located to get to different places. Our room was almost perfect. We were in an accessible suite that didn't have a full shower, very awkward. The other minor issue was the sliding screen that goes right to the beach. Was told they were... More

My husband and I just returned from a four night stay at Glunz. We had a one bedroom suite, overlooking the ocean.The room was exactly as depicted in the advertisements, it was newly renovated, and very clean. The front desk attendants, custodial people, etc. all worked to ensure we had a great stay.

We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary in style at the beautiful Glunz resort, we stayed 4 nights in a beach front villa which more than catered for all our needs in the perfect location steps away from the ocean. The staff were very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Can't wait to return.
