5 Stars All AroundPosted Jun 7, 2017
My partner and I took our two children here for five days, Islamorada is our go to vacation spot. Each day we received amazing and prompt customer service. The view is just incredible and they have a salt water and fresh water pool and a jacuzzi that will fit about 20 people. The pier is a wonderful add on to the hotel also. We stayed in the ocean view room with two full beds. They have a jet tub and a shower, both are great. We had such a great family vacation and look forward to staying at the Islander again.

It's the little thingsPosted Jun 3, 2017
This place needs to mop the floors, fix doors if not replace them. The lanai is awful, dirty, broken chairs, screens need to be replaced, screen door doesn't close and bangs in the wind, ceiling fan broken. Just look around and take a moment to fix each room , one by one. Smoking in the pool, eating in the pool, drinking in the pool REALLY. Rooms 331...334...for starters.

The motel is dated, something from the 1970s.Posted May 20, 2017
The activities provided were too expensive for the poor quality of the "beach" area.

Pros: Position and feeling of space.
Cons: Bathroom facilities
Location: Location is easy to find and very spacious grounds Excellent restaurant just across main road called Lorelei - great food, live music and sunsets!
Lovely position with good pools and plenty of sun beds. Room was comfortable,with good screened area and excellent bed. Only slight downside was bathroom, not luxurious!

Great beach for keys super dog friendlyPosted May 11, 2017
Perfect vacation would recommend only reason why not 5 stars on staff our waitress that served us on beach charged us a little extra because we told her we were paying cash. Bought same drinks at bar and were cheaper with recipe. Front desk staff great and cleaning woman was awsome.

Use to be nicePosted Apr 28, 2017
This was my third visit. Use to love the place. We will not come back. Couldn't use the pool or hot tub because they were too scummy and dirty. They let anyone come use the pools and beach you don't have to stay at the hotel - place was packed with locals. Music over the XM radio was alternative rock/grunge not appropriate for families. Rooms are still nice but Ants on the counters and in the drawers. Safe does not work. Staff is friendly but if you can't use the pool or sit anything down in your room who cares if people are nice. Stay somewhere else.

Fabulous place to stayPosted Apr 10, 2017
Pros: Great decor and delightful blocks of efficiencies, fine beach, great bar, good pool...
Cons: Not very much; for short stays it seemed relatively expensive, but also seemed to us to be among the best resorts between the mainland and Key West
Location: Good for fishing, talking about fishing, fishing shopping, and breaking the drive to Key West. Plenty of water related activities available.
Great location, back from the busy road and straight onto the Atlantic beach, walking distance from amenities such as restaurants and fishing tackle shops (what else do you need?) Staff very amenable and helpful. Pity they can't let you peek into the railway museum on the off-days.

Laid Back Hotel on Ocean in Middle of IslamoradaPosted Apr 1, 2017
Pros: Location and laid back attitude.
Cons: Air conditioning units were loud.
Location: Eco tours, jet ski tours, sport fishing, lots of great restaurants close by.
We had a great time at the Islander Resort. The place is one story with screened in porches. Our unit had an ocean view, and didnt have another group of units in front of it. It wouldnt have been as nice if we were towards the back with a view of other units. Beach is huge but it is man-made with a thin layer of gravelly sand. Lots of lounge chairs and plenty of shade from the palm trees scattered about. Bar/restaurant by pool was nice but food was only okay. But the hotel is surrounded by amazing restaurants so it was easy to find great places to eat nearby. Also, air conditioning units are individual and very loud.

Quiet for r&r and familiesPosted Mar 17, 2017
Pros: We liked the central location, that we could cook in our room, and keep our snacks and beer cold. Could bring our beer to the beach (not pool), or buy
Cons: Get rid of the tiny ants. Replace the old looking stove in our room.
Location: lots to do around the hotel for tourists, fishermen, scuba people, kids, good food out, but we relaxed, stayed in and played cards in our screen room.
It is quiet. The cleaning staff was outside every day to change towels if needed, etc. They took the garbage daily too. The desk staff was very pleasant. I only had 1 problem asking for a kitchen utensil to turn eggs over. I received a spaghetti spoon-she didnt speak english or understand my demonstration, but she was otherwise extremely pleasant. i never felt pushed, rushed, or like they just wanted my money. I was not nickle and dimed. We had a very nice stay. There were no activities, which we like, maybe pool games, or activities personnel to schedule volleyball (couldnt get people going) but its probalby because most of these guests dont want to play group activities. Some things in the room were a little old like the stove, but did its job otherwise. We didnt think we'd use the screen room much when we first saw it, but played cards there or ate outside often. The grounds could have been a little more tended, for example leaves blown off the paths or around the screen rooms, but thats just what we have seen at other resorts, not what we have at home (grin). The beach was spotless, and the beach/pool lounge chairs arranged nicely every night.
