The Casa Marina has the very best resort beach on the island. This hotel property is certainly special with all the history and being right on the Atlantic Ocean is wonderful. It offers some excellent hotel rooms and weekly specials, and is very close to the action on Duval Street. On site amenities include the Private Beach, fishing pier, dining on the beach, frozen cocktails, and all the best watersports. Having a super waterfront view from your hotel is a big plus.
It can be difficult to find a perfect place to stay, so we focused on the oceanfront places with a prime view. We started looking for a vacation rental about two months before the trip dates. Homework time on this website is a great approach to learn quickly, as there are lots of hotels, bed and breakfasts, inns, Guest Houses, and private Condo Rentals in Key West. I like staying in a resort with mega activities to keep all happy in the group. Having the Sun-Sun Beach Bar on property was a big plus. Do not miss the Spa al Mare for some quality time, as the hotel has great services. The front desk area people are great for stopping to get help with information about places to eat and the attractions. I would vote the hotel high up for prime time accommodations on the island. It is a good pick for a romantic hideaway for just the two of you or the family for big fun.
