Clean, comfortable and great staffPosted Oct 28, 2013
Checked in on a Monday for one night, however stayed two nights, we loved the overall resort. The villas were clean, the pool overlooking the bay with hammocks, grills and tiki tourches, really made you feel like you were on vacation. Bring you own fun because this resort does not provide activities. Which is fine by me, a great book near a wonderful pool is perfect. The resort is pet friendly, but did not see any, however did see guests with their own boats, since you can dock them right there! I have told several friends about this place. Only draw back. Small sign on the road. So keep your eyes peeled or you will miss it.

Nice place, but not very accommodating peoplePosted Sep 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
Overall we had a good stay, nice room, good location, clean. The only problem is when we checked in to our two story two bedroom townhouse, we were told we could only park one car. Well we came in two cars since our friends live in a deferent city. They have a sister resort down the street that was half empty but we were not able to leave the other car there either. The website states “ample parking” Bull. We were also charged $25 a day to use the marina and that was not told to us in advance. We trailered a boat and they would not allow us to park it at their other property even though it was full of trailers from other guest and they had plenty of room for it. We ended up having to pay $25 a day to park the trailer at a local marina. No service in the townhouse either, you need to clean your own rooms, you need to take your towels to the office and exchange them for clean ones, Oh by the way the office is only open from 9AM to 5PM so if you’re out at the beach and come home after 5PM your out of luck until the next day at 9AM (normally they did not arrive until 9:15 to 9:30) We also asked for a late check-out at 1:00PM the last day and were told “absolutely not” we needed to be out by 11:00, no exceptions! Overall it is a sham that they know NOTHING about customer service because otherwise I would recommend this resort.

Our stay was outstanding. We had stayed there 2 years ago. The only criticism is that they only have one umbrella at the pool. For those of us that are concerned about skin cancer it was a big problem.

Great spot if you bring a fishing boatPosted Aug 14, 2013 on Hotels.com
Islander offers reasonably priced boat slips for guests. Amenities on site are minimal, however, you have access to the Islander Resort about a mile away. Noise was an issue at night due to the porches facing in to the complex and conversations, laughing, music, etc reverberates through the compex. Other than the late night noise the place was great and we would stay there again.

Best kept secret in Islamorada, our 4th stay!Posted Aug 10, 2013
Pros: Location Location Location!!!
Cons: Accomadate boaters on places to launch boats close by.
Bayside is the most modern resort with boat slips in all of Islamorada. Close to great restaurants,bars & shopping. Rooms are 2 story with porches up & down,comply beds,flats screen TV's & a stackable washer & dryer upstairs. Great sunset's gas tiki torches & grills around pool area with hammocks. Kelly has been great with accommodating our needs on every visit.

Nice place to stayPosted Aug 10, 2013
Pros: convenience to other keys-cleanliness
Cons: the living room furniture is very uncomfortable and that is important after a long day playing tourist
Location: there are several good restaurants nearby but only 2 within walking distance.
We booked our weekly vacation not knowing anything about the Florida Keys and were grateful to find when we arrived that the Islander Bayside was all that we were promised. They have a pool, place to dock your boat, convenient parking (although the lot is small and if people don't follow the rules, there is not enough parking), some units are waterfront and it was very clean and fresh in our condo. It had everything you need to enjoy your time away from home. The one thing we did not like was the living room furniture. It is very uncomfortable and hard to relax on after a hard day sightseeing, playing on the water or to even enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon drink. Overall we gave it a big thumbs up!

Pros: Clean & colourful house. Great to watch the sun go down on the hammocks by the poolside.
Location: Great base for Islamadora & Marathon not too far away.
Excellent accommodation, had everything we needed. Great location for exploring the Keys.

Fantastic Islamorada Condos!Posted Aug 5, 2013 on Hotels.com
This was our 2nd time staying at Islander Bayside. The location in Islamorada is perfect for us. We like the smaller size of this property compared to condo places we have stayed in the Key Largo area. There were several mornings when we had the pool to ourselves. My husband arranged a jet ski tour from the sister property Islander Resort which worked out extremely well. We walked to breakfast at Lorelei's most mornings, walked across the road to the Green Turtle for dinners a couple of times, and made the very short trip to Chef Michael's one evening for dinner. All are great restaurants to have so close.
