We had the most fantastic experience here. The staff was unbelievably accommodating. Bruce, Kendra, Jackie made a great time even better. We go every year and this last trip assured us we will go every year over every other destination choice.

Only place to stay in Key West

Amazing experience with friends for birthday weekend! Kendra our concierge met us as we disembarked the ferry and was so pleasant and accommodating. We were offered cold waters and damp towels to cool off. When our room wasn't ready at 4:00pm we were offered free beverages at the bar which were great. Thanks to Paul. Our cottage was available by 4:15pm but we stayed at the bar for a free rum tasting. A great way to start our vacation.

Kendra made last minute dinner reservation changes for our group at Latitudes that was very appreciated. Although the promised birthday dessert sparklers were forgotten. As was the promised champagne and truffles in the cottage for the birthday guests upon arrival. But it was sent over later with a cheese tray and crackers and was very much enjoyed.

The cottage is well equipped but in need of maintenance and upgrades. But you can't beat the views. The landscaping is beautiful wherever you walk. Flowers everywhere. The pool area is clean, although small and can get crowded. The beverage and food service is hit or miss. When the staff is around they are certainly friendly and helpful. It's such a treat to be handed free fruit shakes when it's hot out and then a short time later be handed a snack fresh fruit on a stick.

The breakfast delivered to our cottage was sufficient. The basket included baked goods, fruit and yogurt. The water and juice is delivered the night before and the creamers are in the fridge when you arrive. The Keurig coffee maker kept everyone happy. There were also chocolates left for our enjoyment one evening.

The island is very peaceful and relaxing. A nice getaway from the noise and chaos of mainland Key West. Be sure to plan for the ferry schedule.

The only issue we had was with housekeeping. Our cottage wasn't getting serviced until after 5pm and by then we were back in there getting ready for dinner. We missed service two of the three nights because of the timing. We asked for and received towels and water. The housekeeping staff we ran into during our stay was not friendly nor accommodating. It was our only negative.

We will return.

First Class Luxury at it's Best!

We had visited Sunset Key last year for lunch at Latitudes. We had the perfect ocean view table. After falling in love with the service, food and surroundings, we knew we would return. So we booked ourselves in for a weekend getaway this year and our expectations were exceeded. The Concierge, Jackie, was instrumental in ensuring we had everything we needed...from the boat ride over to the perfect cottage. She is the meaning of "Service with a Smile". The cottage was spotlessly clean. The staff and service at Latitudes is unparalleled and the food exceptional, reasonably priced too! The setting is honestly outstanding. The beach is tranquil, however, take water shoes as the shoreline is quite rocky. We didn't have a chance to enjoy any Spa services, but that will be on the agenda for our next visit. We truly can't wait to go back. Worth every penny!

A couple hiccups but fabulous overall

My husband and I spent a couple nights here before heading into Orlando for a work meeting. We were not certain what to expect of Key West since the hurricane, but it was business as usual and nothing out of place. Upon check in at SKC we were informed our room was not ready, so we walked around explored and had lunch, which was all great. It did take over an hour to get our bags after check in only after we called and inquired, but we were gifted a lovely wine bottle as an apology. The cottage was very cozy and The property was beautiful. The sand at the beach was VERY rocky and made it difficult to enjoy wanting to swim in the ocean. The pool was great. I LOVED all the amenities in the Kitchen and especially the bowl of creamer in the fridge! We were very disappointed however that our request for luggae assistance and car service arranged with a woman in the office the afternoon prior to checkout never happened. Fortunately we were able to get a taxi arranged to take us to the airport. Overall great stay and will be back.

We just love Sunset Keys and it's our "go to" resort when we want a quick get away. We usually stay in the 2 bedroom cottage for a family of 4 and it's spacious. The morning baskets of pastries are great but by mid week, some of the breakfast items are a bit stale. The food at Latitudes is fabulous (breakfast, lunch and dinner). We were advised to make reservations when we arrived, even though we were cottage guests as it books quickly with non guests. I try not to oversell Sunset Keys because it's not a lush resort and the man made beach and pool are both tiny. The service can also be uneven as some of the staff can be indifferent but this is balanced with other staff members who are fabulously attentive. I agree with some of the other reviewers who claim the staff does not promptly answer the phones which was my experience with the concierge. We did have an issue with our room not being ready passed check in time but offered drinks at Latitudes. Not much of a compensation considering the cost of the rooms. On one of our visits they also assigned us a room with a view of a dumpster? This has probably been remedied. We are looking to book a villa with a pool on our next visit and hope that all goes well so we can rate this a 5 star experience.
