The resort's pool is serene and then you can dry off napping in a hammock hanging between coconut palms in the ocean breezes on the private beach. We enjoyed many restaurants that are walking distance and especially the full moon celebration across... More

We are almost at the end of our stay here in Islamorada...The only thing we can say is that we would have liked to stay longer and enjoy this amazing place. Beautiful grounds, amazing nature and quiet... Thank you to all the phenomenal staff on the beach for all their help with kayaks, paddle-boards and on occasion, sweet land-crabs!:-)))

We had an absolutely amazing time. The propriety is beautifully kept, secluded, lush and very quiet and serene. The beach is out of a Hemingway movie with beautiful white sand and Gorgeous palm trees providing more than enough shade. Hammocks and chaiselongue are scattered throughout.
