The room was small but it had a fantastic window view of the harbor. We were about 20 feet away from the harbor. We saw the boats going in and out , the pelicans flying and sitting everywhere, fishermen on the wharf and and a view that faced out to the gulf. It had a refrigerator and microwave. What we...

3rd stop on our Keys vacation. A little hard to find as it is directly attached to Porkys pub. They need the "Capt Pips" sign bigger. Office is in a garden shed. Resort is old - we had a lower room with only minimally working sliding doors overlooking the bay. No other windows- a little dark. Quiet- but it was...

Unfortunately our snorkel trip to Sambrero Reef was ruined by choppy water and nearly the whole boat of people became seasick. Ie. Turning green, vomiting violently repeatedly and pretty much begging to return back to shore! If you are remotely prone to seasickness, take the meds and Wear the band so your trip doesn't become torture! The visibility wasn't the...

Our 13 and 16 year old grandchildren wanted to try parasailing and we booked with Captain Pips. They had a great time. They were the only ones on the boat and the guys that ran the boat were very friendly. They stayed up for almost 15 minutes and loved it. I would recommend this place for parasailing.

We booked a room directly with the hotel last minute during Christmas hols. We just stayed a night, but it was a perfect halt on the way to Key West. Not having stayed in smaller, family owned type hotels ever before, my apprehension was put to rest from the way the initial call was handled. The lady was very professional...

We took a group of 6 snorkeling - and the experience was incredible. The water was a little choppy because of weather, but the Spirit was stable enough that you hardly noticed the waves. We went to Sombrero Reef - and WOW! Better than National Geographic! Experience was designed for snorkeling specifically (not divers and snorkelers on the same boat)...

Took an afternoon snorkeling trip to the Sombrero Reef Lighthouse with Captain Dave and Dive Master Kim. We had been rescheduled 3 times due to the waves, but each time they gave us the option of snorkeling another area that was more protected from the waves, but we waited until we could go to reef. Boat was a little crowded...

Thanks for sticking with us to get out to the reef. It is beautiful out there, but sometimes the winds don't allow us to venture out there. Thanks for the recommendation.

This place is right on the highway, and after you've checked in at the little shed on the roadside, and driven through the palms to the back door of your chalet, you are beginning to wonder what you've signed yourself up for....... ....then you walk into the room and see out of the windows, and I defy you not to...

Only issue we really had is that the walls are very thin, we could hear the upstairs conversation very clearly. Luckily they were quit in the evenings so no big deal.
