Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Excellent waterfront location in Key West
  • Guests have access to a private, intimate beach on the Gulf
  • Rooms have updated amenities including iPod docks and flat-screen TVs
  • Modern bathrooms with walk-in showers with rainforest showerheads
  • Electric scooter and bike rentals are a fun way to get around resort
  • Guests can rent wave runners, parasail, and snorkel from the hotel marina
  • Peaceful outdoor pool with a waterfall
  • Small, bright fitness center offers chilled towels

Cons

  • Fee for Wi-Fi
  • Fees apply at the business center
  • Some complaints about the maintenance of the on-site turtle pond

Bottom Line

The Hyatt Key West Resort & Spa underwent a multi-million dollar renovation in 2007. The result is a modern tropical resort right on the water's edge. All 118 rooms have a soothing beach-inspired feel and are complete with private balconies. Bathrooms are spacious and modern with funky elevated sinks and rainforest showerheads in walk-in showers. Perks here include the peaceful outdoor pool with waterfall and direct beach access -- although the beach here is quite small and not ideal for sunbathing. Further amenities include a bright fitness center, bike rentals, floating dock, and two restaurants.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

A bustling location near Mallory Square and lively Duval Street

Hyatt Key West is in a convenient location near Mallory Square, within walking distance of many attractions, including trolley tours, the aquarium, and Ripley's Believe It or Not. The cruise port is also nearby, which makes this area a busy tourist hub. Lively Duval Street, with its bars, shops, and restaurants, is two blocks away.

Key West is the westernmost of the Florida Keys, and offers a thriving nightlife scene, as well as great diving, shops, restaurants, and decent beaches -- all within a few blocks. It can feel like a bit of a tourist trap with its tacky bars, hordes of cruise ship passengers, and T-shirt shops, but it’s one of the few Keys that has historic sites to visit. On the literary side, Ernest Hemingway and Tennessee Williams spent a big part of their lives here, and their homes have now been turned into museums.
