I’m from chicago and we went to great lengths to be here so this is hugely disappointing for me. The hotel is literally on the highway and I can hear the cars whizzing by our room all night long. When walking to the other areas of the resort you see and hear the highway with

Great small resort. Only drawback was the bar hours were not great at all. Resort was clean and I liked the small atmosphere. Pool is small but nice. You can use the amenities at the neighboring resort so that was nice.

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
From the highway or parking lot, you can't see much. But once inside your ocean front room or on the beach, you find you are in paradise. Palm trees, lounge chairs and sand (a pool and bar if you like) you can relax, enjoy the view, watch the pelicans dance in the water and

Property itself was nice and the access to the sister property helped. Gayle at the bar was great. We stayed 2 nights and breakfast was included but wasn't worth it. Got billed for drinks to our room that we hadn't ordered but staff were great are correcting the bill. Balcony

This is a smaller scale property but has great amenities and customer service. The views are beautiful and it’s close to everything. Hotel provides a shuttle to the sister properties and rest and attractions south of the resort but not north. Two mornings a week a local

Is there diving on site or do you have a diving partnership? Is transportation provided?
they have snorkel gear but not scuba gear. for actual diving there are plenty of sites off shore which you can reach through charters unless you have your own boat.

Yes, that lager on is a part of Atlantic Ocean. However ther is no lifeguard on duty so it’s not recommended to to swim past the buoys.i don’t remember if there were screens on the doors, but we didn’t have a problem with mosquitoes whatsoever. Even sitting by ocean side in the evening was not a problem. I guess in keys there is a breeze that blows bugs away. Mosquitoes like to live in humid areas with bo breeze. On another note, I don’t think you will want to keep windows open at night. It might be too hot for that. All rooms are equipped with air conditioners

Do you offer marina slips to your guests if they trailer a boat in?
There are a few slips there for smaller boats. Maybe 25 feet or less.

We were very happy during our recent stay. I do not have photos of my oceanfront room but had no complaints. I felt that the photos on the hotel's website were very accurate in the size of the room. The rooms are not sprawling, perhaps more on the cozy side but I never felt cramped and looked bed the terrace. We visited their sister properties. Both Amara Cay and La Siesta were larger but we felt we had made the right decision for us with staying at the more intimate Pelican Cove. We also preferred that Pelican Cove had the only true beach. I found it quite peaceful and relaxing. Yes there was music playing near the pool but we enjoyed it and did not consider it to be too loud. I also felt that the staff was exceptional. My only regret is that we didn't stay longer. I hope this eases your mind.
