Me and my best friend have been coming to the equator I don't off for the last 20 years. It really is a great property and so many things to love about it. Have a great happy hour and two beautiful pools all of which are in wonderful shape. My criticism revolves around the housekeeping. We were there for four...

Hello There, Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay with us. I am sorry to hear about your housekeeping experience.

We stayed at The Equator in August. I used to live in Key West many years ago and I am familiar with all the resorts on island and have been in the other "clothing optional" resorts there...but I have always loved this place. Staying as a guest was an amazing experience. The staff is one of the best I have...

Anthony and the team run a lovely, chilled guest house in Key West. Had a lovely time by the pools and hot tubs, meeting people from all over. The rooms are comfortable and were serviced well daily. The hotel is a short walk from the main drag in Key West, so plenty of options for drinking and eating. And the...

After reading some of the reviews, i was dubious. I will say that for the most part, the staff was very nice when found. The room on the other hand was less than adequate for what we paid. The furniture paint was chipped, and the mattress wasn't close to comfortable. The television kept losing network. $400 a night, I expected...

Hello Shanemichael, First let me thank you for taking the time to let us know your thoughts and experience during your visit. I would also like to apologize for not meeting your expectations.

Reviewed 14 September 2016 via mobile

After looking forward to an anniversary trip to Key West, the Equator Resort was underwhelming. The entire staff at this resort needs to take customer service training, unless the owner really doesn't care. From check-in until we checked out, the entire staff was very disengaged with the guests. Staff would just walk by and ignore guests, never asking if we...

We stayed at the Equator for six days in early September. The hotel is kept very clean and it was obvious that they keep on top of maintaining the place. Facilities are really good - the two pools are both small but this is the old town of Key West, so that's to be expected. Breakfast is included and is...
