Buena Ventura Lakes, Florida
Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

Exceptionally friendly and helpful people who arranged for snorkeling trips, dinner arrangements, and a Mothers' Day brunch reservation. The facility is well-equipped for visitors who choose to set-up housekeeping. They also provide canoes, kayaks, and paddle boats. There is a pool, laundry facilities, pet birds (parrots, etc), and centrally located to explore all of the Keys.

We stayed here for a week while exploring the Keys in both directions, so it was very conveniently located. We were very happy with our one-bedroom and kitchenette unit on the first floor which was clean, and had a very comfortable bed. The owners and staff were friendly and very helpful when we had questions or concerns. The kitchenette is...

We loved the bright and cheery room, the vocal birds in the aviary, the free kayaks, and of course the hammocks and iguanas. The hotel is placed perfectly for exploring the central keys. We stayed two nights and loved it. We would certainly stay there again. The pool was also a plus.

Accommodations are simple. Could use some sprucing/ cleaning up of the grounds. Love the pool. Paddle boat needed repair and told the staff there. Staff very nice and helpful. Fine for a short stay. Close to nearby Marathon restaurants.

I booked this from the Trip Advisor reviews and, boy, did they hit this one on the head. We had a wonderful week here. The young couple running the place are very helpful and attentive. They are having a bit of a problem with the housekeeping staff but I'm sure they will sort this out in short order. King size...

Great hotel! Nice view over the water! The animals were great and the boats we're fun! Nice pool and a fun place to just relax and have a good time! I personally had a great time at this hotel! The tether ball was fun and the hammocks were a great place to relax!

Very family friendly. Two bedrooms & kitchen were what we needed. The use of kayaks was helpful. Pool was awesome! My youngest liked being able to set up her hammock. Didn't get much housekeeping but really we only needed more clean towels & a couple garbage bags.
