always a good experience for an all male resort. Rest, Relax and Recharge on the property. Within walking distance to Duval Street where the clubs and restaurants are. Plenty of rooms, but check rates as it's not the cheapest stay in the city, but great if you are splitting the cost with friends or a partner.

Once you enter, you remain inside the hotel. Room rates are expensive, and prices for breakfast our food inside are also. But this is just great to be able to sunbath naked everywhere. People observe, look, speak, meet and much more ... One thing, when it says "party with young people" on sundays, it means parties with guys that can...

Gay resorts are fast joining gay bars on the endangered species list. Where once Key West boasted of many such bastions of relaxation and play, there now remain two or three. Island House particularly is a stalwart standard bearer of this tradition with its amiable blend of comfort and congenial service. While those behemoth cruise ships invariably docked along the...

I normally stay in big chain hotels, but wanted a change this time, and the Island House did not disappoint. The other reviews that talk about the fact you don't even need to leave is not an exaggeration. Even though we did leave, the resort has all you need on site. The gym is well equipped, the pool is super...

Initially we were a bit worried after making the booking as to what type of place this would be. We've never done a gay resort before, just the perpetual 'thumpata thumpata' of gay night clubs. We had nothing to worry about. On arrival the Front Desk gave us a full tour of the hotel, helped us park our car, and...

This was my first stay at the hotel, as I had wanted to check it out for myself for a long time. The staff could not have been any more friendly and welcoming, Yes, while the rooms are small, they are extremely clean and attended to promptly each day. My estimation is that the rates are about $100 a night...

I can't thank the staff, the front desk team, the food servers enough for making not only me feel amazing while staying here and appreciated, but for the way they treat all SMART Riders annually. They not only make exceptions to the minimum night stay for this fundraiser annually, but welcome us back with a big smile and appreciation. The...
