As far as Gay resorts are concerned, it is one of the best in Key West. Day passes available for men to enjoy the pool, cafe and the exotic interior for fun. Rooms are often pricey even for the regular customers. 10 minute walk to...More

Very reasonable prices for Key West including food and drinks. The facilities are very nice but not fantastic, remember you are in a beach town. The staff are super friendly and helpful. I left a bag behind and they had it shipped home for me!...More

This place knows how to market itself. It’s nice, but super-expensive for what is average accommodation. Elderly clientele on the whole and some locals attend for the pool parties/happy hour. Breakfast is not included and is pricey if you choose to have it in the...More

Thanks for you review! We have a few major projects planned for the property at Island House- it's just incredibly difficult scheduling these projects at the same time honoring existing reservations. Don't lose hope- we have a time period planned for a brand spanking new...More

Due to the nature of Island House's setup and environment, I don't believe they allow pets on the property. Call the front desk to inquire and confirm.

No worries, you will not offend anyone. The resort gives you a body wrap which is comfortable and goes on and off quickly. Also many guest prefer not to be nude. It a great place to relax and have the freedom to be naked.
