Been going to TopSider since 1985 :-) Two weeks in July and 1 or 2 Weeks in January; So obviously I Love the place! Nice dockage for Boat! We are into Water Sports, and the Matecumbe Bight is perfect for Water Skiing & Wake Boarding! Nice SandBar just South of TopSider. If you're into fishing, you'll have your hands full!...

We stayed at the Topsider every year for many years but hadn't visited for a longtime. We love the location at Islamorada. The water is still nice for snorkeling and fishing. This year a manatee hung out at the dock one day which was awesome to see. I agree that the units could do with a bit more updating although...

My Family has been going to the Topsider for 35 years and it's our favorite place on the planet period! Staff is friendly, very down to earth and accomodating. Always an awesome week. This is not a 5 star place but honestly you'd be hard pressed to find anything better. Only 20 Units & all have access to topsiders own...

I love visiting Topsider. Our friend has had a timeshare there for many years and has invited my husband and I twice. I love the boardwalk among the landscape to the dock, and the people staying there same week are very nice. This year the decking around the pool was new, the hot tub is saltwater, and the canoe and...

My husband and stopped in to visit friends who have had a time share here for 30 years. We are considering it for our family next year. This was our first drive down the Key West, and after Key Largo, Islamadora is one of the communities along the way with the most to offer as far as restaurants, grocery store...

I have to say I wasn't sure about this place based on reviews. It is a no frills place so if you are looking for an upscale resort with all the bells and whistles this is not your place, if you want just the basics then this place works. We had 6 adults for a week and it's not a...

I will begin by saying, I prefer modern-upscale resorts, so this type of "resort" is not really up my alley. I worked in hotels for years, so I am used to providing and receiving round the clock service during stays. This resort is for leisure use, did not see staff while visiting -- very hands off. THE GREAT: The did...

We had a great week vacation at Topsider. We were able to launch our boat onsite. The 2 bedrooms were nice for privacy from the kitchen, dining, living room area. We were able to do our laundry during the trip, brought my own bag of pods for detergent. You can buy ice onsite for ~ $3.00 per bag. You have...

This is a lovely hotel resort with great beach and amazing location. It has 2 bedrooms,2 bathrooms and 1 family room with kitchen. It can fit 6 people. My experience was always amazing.

I purchased timeshare Week 7 in Unit 3C last year. This was our first visit to Topsider. This timeshare was bought sight unseen. It is the third unit from the waterfront.
