How to Get There
Were guest of Margaritaville Resort a sister resort to Sunset Key Cottages. They offer a daily ferry to Sunset for $20 per person, I saw that on the Margaritaville website so I had told my husband and our friends about it, there’s 5 of us total. You can’t make reservations ahead of time, you have to be at the concierge desk by 8am to buy tickets since they only sell 20 per day. Yesterday when we were down at the pool we met two couple from Georgia, really cool people so we told them about the trip to Sunset Key, so today Friday, we decided all 9 of us were going to go. It was a successful day till the end, at 4:30pm we thought we had missed our ferry back to Margaritaville so the 9 of us decided to go to the bar and get another drink since they no longer had service on the beach. We get to the bar and the bartender “Tim” was not only rude but disrespectful! After we all sat down at the bar he said to us “I need to serve our guests first since they’re our guests so you all are going to have to wait till I can get to you!” Totally uncalled for, between the 9 of us we spend about $800 on the beach on drinks and food. His attitude made us feel like we didn’t matter. We’re staying at Margaritaville and is not like that place is cheap either! We were planning on going back to Sunset Key tomorrow instead of the pool at Margaritaville but that won’t be happening. On a funnier story the 9 of us were planning our trip for next years Mile 0 Fest and we’re planning on all staying at Sunset Key, thanks but no thanks! #rude #disrespectful
Latitudes is an iconic restaurant on Sunset Key, just a short boat ride away from Key West. You can go on line to book or go to their office in Margaritaville—once the Westin-- to make a reservation. On pier 29 is where you can catch “the free” five minute boat ride to Sunset Key.
Once off the boat, you are only allowed to go to the restaurant. The rest of the island is private. You can manage, though, to pay a fee to use the beach area.
We always look forwards to having at least one lunch at Latitudes. It is an upscale place with beautiful views of the blue ocean and most of the time with breezes.
There is outside and inside seating. If you wish to sit by the sea, I would highly recommend making a reservation to do so. We came without a reservation and were seated in the covered patio area. The views were still marvelous though from there.
We started out by ordering one Rum-Runner on the rocks, and a lime Colada. Both were excellent.
My wife loved the salad. She did not like the steak in the gorgonzola salad. It had no taste for her.
I did enjoy the chicken sandwich. It was “Lemon brined, smoked chicken with gruyere cheese.” I had it “blackened well” too. I switched out the “mango chayote salad” for an arugula salad. I would order this dish again.
With drinks, food and tip, the bill came to $80 dollars. We thought it was well spent.
We did ask our waiter, Michael from Prague, if Oprah Winfrey ever owned property on Sunset Key. He said, “She did not.” Through Google, though, I found out that Oprah did rent a slew of cottages for friends and family at one time. Michael, who has worked at Latitudes for seventeen years, said he had seen Danny DeVito visiting Latitudes.

I have reviewed Sunset Key cottages a few times and I take the time to do it because it just never disappoints! If you have never been here it is a separate small island just a short 5 minute ferry boat ride that departs every half hour from Sunset Key and from the mainland. Once you board the Ferry you are greeted by the best Captains and crew they are just so welcoming! Captain Harry Privette is one of my favorites, I always look forward to his welcoming smile and you can honestly see that he cares about the guests by the way he treats you and when we visit I hope he is working! Betsy is another wonderful Captain she is the sweetest and is always smiling! I wish I knew all their names but they are all great! The property is just beautiful and maintained very well, the cottages are cozy and clean with beautiful views (I recommend an ocean front or partial ocean view) there are hammocks right outside your cottage to sip your favorite cocktail and just take in the Key West ocean air I just love it! The cottages have fully stocked fridge and mini bar and are replenished each morning along with nightly turn down service and you are left with a sweet treat each night. When you wake up there is a basket on your patio with fresh croissants, muffins, fruit, and OJ. If you want a sit down breakfast, lunch or dinner there is a restaurant on the island called Latitudes get a beach table so beautiful and excellent service! I love going to the pool you can get lunch poolside and cocktails they have the best service there too Valentina and I wish I knew the names of the other servers because they take such good care of making sure you have anything you need, they bring fresh fruit kabobs and popsicles around too! There is a private beach area as well you can get service there too always great. The housekeeping staff are so kind and always smiling very respectful of your privacy if needed well done all around! Concierge wonderful, friendly as always. If you go to Latitudes Dan and Tim are awesome, they always welcome us back and the service is outstanding!! I always miss this place when I go home and the staff just cares and makes us want to always make Sunset Key our go to vacation spot, well done once again love you all and we will be back soon!!
Went here for our wedding anniversary. Took a short boat ride from the heart of Key West to this private island. Here we were greeted by our host and brought to our lovely cottage. Inside was an anniversary basket with fruit and nuts and a bottle of champagne. We had a full kitchen with a porch off our living room and off our bedroom. The cottage was a mix of luxury and beach. Cozy with all our needs. The pool was beautiful and the restaurant fabulous. We took the ferry to town at night to explore all Duval street has to offer and then retreated back to our quiet island to sleep. Highly recommend this place and can't wait to go back!
We are keys locals so it was a challenge to find a unique experience for my husbands birthday Then I thought how cool it would be to have lunch on Sunset key It was fantastic He was grinning from ear to ear We enjoyed the boat ride from key west then had a fantastic meal with an equally fantastic view We each had a meal, shared an appetizer and I had a fancy drink and it was less than $100 They also validate parking at the Margaritaville Resort If you have ever thought about going there GO FYI though if you want to go for dinner make your reservation about a month ahead at least
