Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • On a private, quiet island
  • Sandy beach on-site with free loaner kayaks
  • Large cottages come with full kitchens
  • Marina on-site
  • Nice outdoor pool with a couple of lounge chairs
  • Spa and concierge services
  • A short drive to Marathon and Islamorada
  • Free Wi-Fi

Cons

  • Fee for cribs
  • Standard rooms are small -- cottages are worth the upgrade
  • No tubs, only walk-in showers
  • Bedrooms are small in most cottages
  • Secluded (a pro for some), and very few services

Bottom Line

The mid-range, 13-room Conch Keys Cottages is located on a tiny private island a short drive from Marathon and the Keys' airport. Standard rooms are smallish, but villas and cottages are worth the upgrade, with full kitchens as well as sitting and dining areas. There’s a small but beautiful beach (not swimmable at low tide), free kayaks, and a nice outdoor pool (though there's little space for sunbathing). It offers a relaxing and low-key stay, so don’t expect luxury or a ton to do. Still, it’s a great pick for families and groups.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

On a private island, a 15-minute drive from Marathon Airport

Conch Key Cottages is located on Walker's Island, a private island along the Overseas Highway. The Marathon Airport and Islamorada are a short drive away, but you will have to drive over an hour to get to the attractions of Key West. The emerald waters surrounding the road and the great snorkeling are the main draw here.

The island itself has nothing besides the hotel, so make sure to stock up on everything you need for your stay, or you will find yourself driving up and down the highway, which can have heavy traffic, especially on weekends.

  • 18-minute drive to the Florida Keys Marathon Airport
  • 21-minute drive to Sombrero Country Club
  • 24-minute drive to Islamorada, a village made up of a string of tiny islands, with great fishing and a yacht marina
  • 51-minute drive to John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park
  • 83-minute drive to Key West, a lively key full of shops and bars (and tourists)
  • 2-hour drive to Miami

 Bottom Line

The mid-range, 13-room Conch Keys Cottages is located on a tiny private island a short drive from Marathon and the Keys' airport. Standard rooms are smallish, but villas and cottages are worth the upgrade, with full kitchens as well as sitting and dining areas.
