Fodor's Review

This tropical retreat is everything you imagine when you think of the Keys—from hammocks swaying between towering trees to sugar-white sand (arguably the Keys' best resort beach) lapped by aqua-green waves. West Indies–style cottages with cypress and Dade County pine accents, colorful shutters, private verandas, and wicker furniture sit in a canopy of coconut palms and old forest landscaping on a residential street off the highway. This is a high-end slice of Old Florida, so don't expect tacky tiki bars. The one-, two-, and three-bedroom cottages all have modern kitchens with modern appliances. A palm-lined walkway leads to the beach, where a swimming dock awaits. The spa offers massages (in the beach chickee, if you desire) and beauty treatments. During busy season, there may be one-week minimum. Neighboring Cheeca Lodge, the Moorings has the same high standards but is less cramped, more private and exclusive, and possibly the most beautiful property in the Keys.
