Bring your gps phone, as you will need it in case of a break down. They offer more boating dockage than others, and it is nice and deep. We think it is an fine hotel for Florida Keys vacations. Skip the car in the Florida Keys, that means boating or Bicycle Riding to your destination. Just a true pleasure to stay in an area of the keys that has it all. Nice and big pool make us smile. Swim right off the beach or do a reef trip for Underwater play. It is clean and very nicely taken care of. Having lots of quick access options to adorable-fun is so welcome. I have learned over the years that is very important to be near one of the major cities: Marathon, big pine, Key Largo, and Key West. Boat tow Florida Keys handles this area if you are your own boat captain and need to call for help.
Boating is really nice in this area as we love to do it. If you can bring a cast net and know-how to throw it out of the boat to get live Fish Bait, you will have even more success when you are fishing. Every show that I've seen on tv about fishing in the Florida Keys makes a big deal about using a cast net to catch your fishing bait. You can buy live fishing bait in Tavernier creek. I do not remember the name of it, but there's a big marina on the lower side of the waterway with a great Bait Shop and plenty of boat parking. Tavernier creek is the way you will go out to the ocean, and you want to go down the islands to get to that which will eventually be on the left. This hotel has plenty of boat dock parking and I am not really sure if it ever fills up completely. Perhaps on the weekends during the winter months it might not be so easy to get a spot unless you call ahead and reserve it with the front desk.
