Casa Marina Resort Key West
ReviewsMy husband and I stayed at the Casa Marina Resort in Key West for our honeymoon and it was paradise! Our ocean view suite was decorated with a modern elegance, was very open and spacious. The resort is breathtaking inside and out. It's a very impressive structure. It was originally built in the 20's and they have managed to preserve all of it's charm The landscaping of the grounds surrounding the property and especially the pool was immaculately kept. The staff is friendly and professional as you would expect from such a first class resort. The view from the room and everywhere else we were here was fabulous. This is a beautiful Resort in Key West. When it came time to explore the island we rented bikes and found that was the way to go. Unless you plan on going out for dinner or cocktails dressed nicely, rent a bike and ride around. You will miss a lot if you try to drive around. Parking a bike is breeze no matter where you go.
We just got back home from the Casa Marina Resort after a week long stay. We reserved our room directly with the resort with the number from See A Room Key West! I don't like jumping through all the hoops of booking on-line. I'm much less concerned there will be a mistake if I talk to the hotel directly. You get the best deals when you book reservations directly too. When we were enjoying the pool I met a gentleman that had been staying at the resort every year for 23 years. Aside from the updates to the property, he said that they haven't changed they're level of management and quality the entire time he's been vacationing here. The Casa Marina is one of the few places in the world maintaining the effort and service of the past twenty years. For the price level to stay here we agreed that you really get your moneys worth unlike many resorts these days. I only hope I can be lucky enough to be able to go back for the next 23 years and pass the story on.
We have stayed in suites at the Casa Marina in Key West for a few vacations to Key West. We usually stay there or the Southernmost On The Beach which does offer a better location and the rates are typically a little easier on the budget. The renovations they completed were excellent. This resort is a true American classic. They spent the time to insure the details and important points of the property where preserved and restored. It was masterfully done. On our last vacation we had a two bedroom suite. We were traveling with friends and it was nice to have the privacy. The cost was less than two individual rooms as well which we liked. I remember it was very difficult to find such a suite in Key West. This vacation my family of four had a one bedroom suite. For family this was fine. The room was laid out nicely. The furniture and decor after the renovation is very stylish and inviting. The bathrooms are really big and the water pressure in such a large building is awesome. Blows the salt right off after laying on the beach all day. We have children and the Casa Marina is a very family friendly accommodation. They loved the beach and pool. We had a hard time getting them to leave the resort during the day. Admittedly we wanted to lay on the beach all day too. The setting is ideal for relaxing and forgetting you have any responsibility. The wrap around sofa with big plasma tv made the room feel like home. We spent a few evenings relaxing in the room watching tv. The sofa was very comfortable. This year we rented bikes and jet skis. The snorkeling trip to the reef is something everyone should do. It is truly spectacular. As is the Casa Marina.
