Nestled in the middle of Key Largo, Florida, Kona Kay Resort and Gallery is a gem worth visiting any time of the year. We happened to spend only one night and regretted not having stayed longer. Our bay front room had a fantastic view of the garden and the bay while affording all the amenities needed for a romantic and...

My wife and I stayed here, in the "Key Lime" suite for our seventh anniversary. The property is beautiful and very well maintained, with flora that really makes things seem special and exotic. This resort really made our anniversary special and we were never left wanting. With nice restaraunts within walking distance and beautiful scenes all around the grounds, it...

If you are looking for a completely relaxing, stress-free vacation, then Kona Kai is the resort for you! We stayed in the Lychee suite and it was beautiful! We loved having a full kitchen, living area and private patio with table and chairs, lounge chairs and a charcoal grill! The pool and jacuzzi are beautiful and the bontanical garden is...

This is the perfect getaway for couples, very quaint with beautiful surroundings and everything you need for a romantic and relaxing time. We went on a snorkeling trip which was fine, but actually I wished we had just spent the whole time at the resort soaking in the atmosphere! This is the "happy place" you take yourself to in your...

The landscape of this resort is gorgeous - beautiful plants and beach area. The pool is heated and the hot tub is divine. It's a really beautiful setting. The staff are also super friendly and helpful and could not do enough for us. They helped arrange massages for us for our anniversary and were really lovely. Our room - Mango...

This charming inn is only outdone by its the stellar staff who provide outstanding concierge service. Tracy and Denise are not only lovely but did everything and anything to make great suggestions for activities, secure (and rebook) reservations and all other arrangements to make our vacation get-away carefree and relaxing just as it should be. The inn is small and...

This is a small group of rooms across 4 small one story buildings. If all hotels used as much care in thinking through their space, travel would be much more delightful. The parking lot (aesthetically pleasing) and tennis court set the buildings back from the road. The "compound" uses planting areas for a botanical garden with individual plants professionally labeled....

Thank you, thank you to the Kona Kai “family” for another wonderful stay! Coming back again was just as memorable as the first time. The fond memories from last year made us anticipate this year’s stay all the more. Superb service and amenities -- all with such a personal touch. Upon returning home, co-workers commented on the “glow” I had....

This immaculately kept garden-resort is a marvel of design -- not an inch of waste space, either in the rooms or in the garden; and as a result Kona Kai seems larger than it really is. You are not paying overhead for a restaurant or a bar, a serious plus; food has to be found off-site. If you are arriving...

This was our second time in as many years taking a week off and staying at Kona Kai. The excitement from first year activities had worn off enough for me to sit back and feel how comfortable I actually was. I was asked which year we had more fun. I thought the first was probably more fun but the second...
