The staff is great. Beautiful ambiance and a perfect place to unwind and kick back. Happy hour is always fun and the pools are the perfect temp. Book in advance as the place is always busy. Get a room with a balcony over the pools area for sure

I loved every minute at this fantastic resort for men. It's located on a quiet street just a short walk from everything you want to see and do in Key West. Everyone I met on the staff was welcoming, accommodating, friendly, and made that all my needs were met. The complementary breakfast is a great way to start the day...

It seems like more of a couple's...
