Our Best Vacation EVER!
Reviewed 1 week ago

Just returned from spending four nights at Sunset Key Cottages. Having traveled to Key West before, this was “hands down” the best experience we have ever had in this tropical paradise. Sunset Key is like being on your own private island. The fun and quirkiness of Key West is just a five minute boat ride away. You get to experience all the fun things in Key West but then can return to your peaceful island oasis. The accommodations were outstanding. So many little touches were appreciated, like the breakfast basket delivered to your door each morning with fresh croissants, muffins & fruit to the evening turn-down service which provided bottled water, Natalie’s OJ and a special treat. The food at Latitudes is excellent and the staff was friendly, attentive and helpful. You will love this spot for your next tropical vacation.

40th Birthday Bash!
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

One word “AMAZING!”. We went to celebrate my nieces 40th Birthday 3days 2nights. It was a group of ten. The island is beautiful. They have a great supply of complimentary water, orange juice and fresh basket of baked goods with fresh fruit which was delivered every morning between 8:30-9am. I called a few days before and Bruce the concierge and he was more than helpful in making sure we had enough pillow, robes and extras. He meet us when we arrived and personally checked us in and walked us to to our beautiful cottage. On our second morning, we had to leave early for a snorkeling trip, I called and they brought our basket of baked goods within 5 minutes. Just make sure to bring water shoes for the beach it has lots of rocks, not horrible but would make for a better time. The pool is very shallow, 3’8” is a deep as it gets. However, we found our way back on land to the Margaritaville, the pool is much bigger and still has all amenities of the island. The drinks are pricey but they have a wonderful bar at the pool. The boat service to and from the island is always on time. If the boat gets full the will send another on over within minutes. My rating was five but I would make it a TEN!

A loss for words, good ones....

One of the best in our portfolio. Relaxing, romantic and great accomodations and food. If Key West wasn't next door to your private island, you would not have any reason to leave. Dinner on the beach, big comfy beds and great room service. If you don't put this on you bucket list, you're making a big mistake!

Recently 7 members of our family (including 3 children) stayed at Sunset Key. It's beautiful, pool and hot tub are perfect, loved the breakfasts, sunsets and sunrises, and the fact that's it's secluded from the bustle of Key West itself---yet less than a 10 minute boat ride away.
The staff are so helpful. We had to change cottages after our first night as we wanted a larger place, and aside from packing, it was all done when we got back from our visit to the mainland.
The kids love the ice cream man coming around each day and would have been content to stay on the island all the time.
The restaurant is wonderful too and we ate most of our dinners there.

We highly recommend this property!

Beach is littered with cigarette butts and beer caps. My fiance was cut on the beach from a piece of glass and I found a hair in my food on the last night.

Management was unable to go out of there way and accommodate us with a crying baby for early check in (even though we advised reservations we would be in early.) instead gave lip service until check in time stating we had to tell them we wanted early check in. I was even called a lair and was given the wrong email for the GM Dj McCarthy from Taylor the manager on her last day of work. Baby was off on sleep schedule which made it a sleepless first night so we extended an extra night to make up for the bad start.

Towel attendant threw our lunch and drinks away even though our belongings were still all over the beach chairs. We were staying at the beachfront cottage and I asked what he was doing as he was pouring things out. I got a sorry and that was it. Didn't want to replace drinks or food.

Overall the island is pretty, cottages are nice but for 1500.00 a night I can find far better service.

I would NOT recommend staying at this place. I wrote the GM on the 1st of May and have still not heard back. Just goes to show they could care less.
