Anniversary Getaway
Reviewed 6 days ago

I love this hotel. My family spent a summer vacation here in August. So wonderful was our stay that my husband and I chose to return alone for our 13th wedding anniversary getaway. We booked a 2 night stay and were enjoying the property amenities to the fullest including breakfast at Latitudes where we had booked our Anniversary dinner for Saturday night. We unexpectedly received news of urgent nature that required our immediate return home and forced us to cancel the remainder of our trip. The team of professional guest services compassionately tended to our every need helping us quickly return home. But what amazed us was the return of our second night's prepaid room charge. Very unexpected but the staff could see we were disappointed in having to leave our lovely romantic vacation. Your compassionate gesture has won our loyalty and we promise to return very soon. Thank you. We love Sunset Key Cottages!

They know how to do

OUr family including adult children and spouses spent Thanksgiving week at Sunset Key Cottages. The resort is immaculate, the grounds are lush and pristine. The staff from the front desk clerk to the housekeepers were all so helpful and pleasant. The resort arranged two fishing charters and golf cart rental in Key West. Sunset Key adds some extra touches- the basket of croissants , muffins, jams, and fruit delivered to your front stoop every a.m., the ice cream man on his bicycle cart who comes around every afternoon at 3- all complimentary- that makes for a warm fuzzy feel. Sunset Key is a 5 minute ferry ride from Key West provided by the resort every half hour. (We were assured should we need transportation another time , they would provide it) The resort plus a dozen private homes encompass the small island . So nice to be able to remove yourself from the craziness of Key West, but I feared that being captive there would mean the food might be sub-par, the beach and pool too crowded, etc. This was not the case. The beach was never crowded. We had full service, meals and drinks, on the beach.. We even played a little beach volleyball and cornhole. The pool filled up at peak times but still had chairs, an accessible bar, and food service. ALL food , from the croissant basket, to the pool and beach, to our beautiful dinner at Lattitudes on our first night and goodbye breakfast (lobster Benedict ) was delicious. We stayed in a 3 bedroom garden view cottage. I always am suspicious of reviews that are too glowing, so I will try and add some ‘negatives.’ The sitting room is small for 7 people but we spent most of our time out of the cottage, and the bedrooms are very large allowing for us to have our own space. I would’ve opted for a larger ocean view but when I booked these were taken. However, our cottage was situated so we had an ocean view from the 2nd story. The spa is small but nice staff and we had a pleasant body scrub. Overall, we couldn’t have asked for more. Many thanks for a wonderful stay.

Incredible...simply Incredible!

Our family converged on Sunset Key Cottages for 8 days during the Thanksgiving Holiday week. We had a very relaxing vacation. Sunset Key Cottages is an amazing location & experience. For starters: The atmosphere is exceptional. It's quiet, tranquil with little to distract you...if that's what you want. We stayed in Cottage #13. It was spectacular. We were directly on the water's edge with a sandy beach and privacy. We witnessed sunrises in the morning and sunsets in the evening with oceanfront porches on both the East & Southwest....spectacular.

The Spa is simple....but effective. We took full advantage. Staff was super friendly...from Bruce (first person we met) who went out of his way to bring an item we needed from his own home....to all the spa staff....to "D" who handles the pool bar but also handled our anniversary dinner on the beach. There is also great staff at Latitudes...particularly Michael who handled our table of 6 for Thanksgiving!

Cottages are fantastic! Frig was always full. Requests were handled timely and "with a smile." In-room dining was quick and very tasty. We loved the experience.

Key West is fully of busy....nightlife....activities and action. Sunset Key Cottages is just the opposite and that's what we were looking for. Thank you!

Great relief in a picturesque setting
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Large two story 3 bedroom cottage with extremely courteous staff. The setting was perfect and pool very relaxing with many little amenities that just reflected on the quality of the resort. It was a welcome relief from key west and its vibrant night life. The only down side was the beach had rocks as you entered the gulf and water amenities were only available on key west rather than sunset key.

Solitude amongst the craziness
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Very fortunate to be able to stay on this little island off Key West. Beautiful cottages offer some peace and quiet just off the KW shore. Staff is very friendly and attentive. Everyone always busy and attending to things. Extremely comfortable beds with plenty of bathroom amenities. Food at Flippers pool bar is very good, nice choices. Staff is respectfully attentive by the relaxing pool. Enjoyed many chill hours out there. Yes, it’s on the higher end of the cost scale but you get a lot for your money. The water shuttle runs twice an hour each way so you’re never too far from all the fun and craziness of KW when you want it!
