Stayed at Island House for the first time after having been there previously on day passes. Overall, a great experience and one that we hope to repeat as soon as we can. We stayed in room 420, which is a two-bedroom apartment on the second floor of a building adjacent to the main building. For us, this ended up being...

I stayed Jan. 11-14 with two friends who had arrived on Jan. 10. We had a room facing the pool on the first floor. The room location was perfect and our room was very nice. I never had any problem sleeping being close to the pool. The property was clean. The front desk staff was very helpful. I liked the...

Robb R's Dec 2012 review does a great job capturing the essence of the place. As such, I certainly understand fireman452's Jan 2013 review. I stayed six nights on my own. By the 4th day, I needed to get away from all the activity. There are several day passers including some from cruise ships that come by this resort. Onsite...

we are a couple and our relationship is very important to both of us. It seems that the other folks staying here assume that you are there to "hook-up" and I guess we were considered too much of a temptation because we were not left alone. We will not be back - we have found other locations in S Florida...

While a bit pricey, the Island House is a great place to base you visit to Key West. The facilities, staff, ambiance, food, and opportunities for fun are tops. It is easy walking distance from Duval Street in the Old Town area of Key West. I have spent 8 days there with two trips in the last year and will...

The best gay men's property in beautiful Key West. For me, Island House is a relaxing, friendly, no pressure environment. Jon Allen, the owner, runs an excellent business. The staff is fun and efficient. The restaurant is very nice, the pool is large, nice sun decks, nice small gym, comfortable rooms, and right in Old Town.

We always enjoy our time at the Island House. Let it all "hangout" or stay somewhat "reserved" it's all up to you. Wonderful rooms and facilities. The bar/restaurant down in the pool area is definately the social place to be with daily "free" happy hours and awesome freshly prepared meals. Great location away from the touristy craziness but still close...

From the moment we walked in the door, our stay at Island House was filled with expert customer service and relaxed enjoyment. Three of us stayed on the 2nd floor pool side. The room was comfortable and spacious with great decorating details. The bed had to be one of the most comfortable that I've experienced while traveling. Some may feel...

Well, it's supposed to be the best gay resort in the world. Errrrmm.. well... I'm not totally sure about that title. It is however definitely up there with the top 10 of the best. It's in need of a little bit of tender care here and there, but there are some outstanding features. Putting aside the very friendly clientele the...
