              Adorable cottages, very kind and accomadating staff. Very comfortable bed and pillows,. My cottage was very dated, but very clean. If you look past how dated the cottages are and focus on what is important like cleanliness great quiet air conditioning, and hot water for a shower. This is the place for you. There is also a full kitchen if these cottages. Loved them would consider staying again.

              Very lovely cottages, perfect for 2 or also families. Very clean rooms, nice staff. There's a nice beach at 2 miles. Good to take a break before driving on to tourist crowded key west. Definitely recommend it!!

              Easy to book, close to supermarket and pharmacies, close to main road.

              Mosquitoes inside the cottage, it could have been cleaner, shower was very stained and looked really dirty, toilet backed up both days, they came as soon as we notified and appear to fix it. No insulation so the air conditioner was not working properly. The fridge was working, but had rust stains in the door.

              Room small but comfortable and clean. walking distance to park, Big Kmart, Publix, Winn Dixie, McDonald's.

              The territory where the cottages are very small. No pool. You can get to the beach only by car (although it is not far away - a mile or two). The room did not have a hair dryer and shampoo.

              Very helpful front desk clerk--came at 9:45pm and he was still so helpful.

              More rooms should have double beds.

              Very friendly staff; Room decoration; Very clean; Setting.

              Our cottage had a private outdoors bathroom: it was actually quite nice concerning showers, but when raining it wasn't practical or comfortable, and at least during the night the mosquitoes were a problem. Noisy air conditioning.

              Nothing

              This place offers accomadations that border on fraud.

              We are both in our 60'S. This was a second honeymoon celebrating our 40th anniversary. The cottages put you in mind of the types of accomodations found in the Keys back when we were first married. It was apparent that each cottage had been refurbished and modernized, but had not lost the Keys atmosphere. Our cottage had a king-sized four- poster bed. It was comfortable and spacious enough for a couple as tall as us. We are 5'9' and 6'5". We liked that each cottage was a separate and individual place. We weren't bothered by others or bothering someone else. We enjoyed our stay and would certainly stay at the Cottages again.

              We had problems accessing the Internet. The location of the router made connecting difficult. If the guest in the next cottage was there, their parking spot was right in front of the router. We really didn't want to have to go a place like Starbucks just to check and answer emails.

              the colour of the cottages

              incompetent staff, filthy rooms, all sorts of bugs in the room (a lot of ants), terrible beds, very primitive bathrooms, TV not working, very primitive cottages... We didn't get what we booked and the staff and the owner could not or would not give us what we booked., we left after 2 of the 4 booked nights. We would absolutely NOT recommend this to anyone, very bad value for money and very filthy.The pictures and info on the webside do not reflect the reality!!

            • Older travelers

              Description and some reviews which were enough to persuade us to reserve a cottage (the last available) somewhat larger than our requirement and at a price somewhat more than we'd been paying as we have moved south through the usa.

              Sadly, we never got to experience the cottage booked because planned work on it had not been completed and we were placed in apartment #14 one of two in the central building about which the receptionist waxed lyrical. On the face of it, this was better (large living and kitchen area with separate bedroom and bathroom) than the cottage we'd actually booked but the reality was that it was shabby, air conditioning units in lounge and bedroom were noisy enough to make talking, listening to TV and sleeping difficult if not impossible; the locked door direct to the office (with light above) and the inadequately blocked-off door to the other apartment offered less than expected privacy, the servicing was minimal and the bathroom had absolutely no ventilation! To add to these disappointments, eight or so brightly painted cottages around a tiki bar just off a close enough to be noisy US1 between a U-Haul depot and some unadopted scrub on a cul de sac leading down to some private property and a scruffy disused small dock just didn't match up to the idyllic description. In retrospect, we should have made our point and left early but we were on holiday and just decided to grit our teeth, gird up our loins and get through it!

              The outdoor shower & how quite it is

              A refreshing alternative to a standard motel style room. Homely and very friendly.

              Although there were plenty of places for breakfast locally it would have been nice to have had the option on site too.

              Size of the room and quiet location.

              Slow/weak flushing toilet, weak water pressure, sugar ants.

              I have never stayed at a more comfortable and friendly Hotel. We were moving to the area with two cats. After unpleasant experiences at 3 local hotels we tried Tropical Cottages. What a relief! Sherry was over-accommodating. The tropical theme as well as the beautifully furnished individual cottages were as described. They have a nice, full bar tiki hut for afternoon relaxation and socializing. The prices were very reasonable compared to local motels and a real steal when you take in to account how beautiful it is! Thanks for brightening our week! Frank n Chris :)

              Old Fla. Keys lifestyle. Don't come here if you need 24 hour attention. Clean and comfortable.
