The Pelican is located right on the beach, great location, with several docks and a beach. Knowing that we'd spend very little time in the room, we booked the smallest room available, and it was very small, but since we were only there to sleep, it wasn't a problem. The room was a little bit run down, but it was...

Very well kept area. The rooms are clean and nice. Very small for the regular room we had. We were so busy enjoying the area it did not matter. Bed so comfy, best sleep all vacation.

The rooms are small but perfect for staying in the Keys, as all you need is a bed and air conditioner. In our room the bathroom was up 2 small steps, kinda interesting to remember for those middle of the night bathroom trips. The room was clean and the staff friendly. The docks are great for hanging out and looking...

This place was unreal. A little piece of heaven. Everything about it was more than we could have ever imagined. I went with a big group of my friends to celebrate mine and another friend's 25th birthday, and we got two cabins. The whole places is incredibly colorful--each cabin a different bright color. Palm trees everywhere, multiple piers to hang...

We stayed in the Merlin cottage - a little two-bed suite with a small kitchen. It was perfectly comfortable. Importantly, the cottage was clean and the place quiet. There are several docks and a nice little beach area that is great for kids. A modest breakfast is provided (toast, packaged pastries, cereal, coffee) in a small kitchenette attached to an...

Room is ridiculously laughably small, but worse, the room was filthy. Not just unkept, and run-down, but mildew, mould and filth. Would never recommend this place!! This website wants a review of 200 words or more, but really how many different ways can I say "this place sucks"

Upon arrival the cottages seemed quite cute just as expected. When I went inside to pick up the key the lady at the front desk was very unfriendly and spoke little English. We stayed in the birds of paradise cottage. The furniture was quite old and beat up. It did have a full-size kitchen, which was a plus. The shower...

My sister and I traveled the Keys in March and stayed two nights at this place. While it was $250 a nite and lacked basics such as hair dryer or shampoo, it was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed being able to walk to several good restaurants nearby so that neither had to be the designated driver!
