Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • A short drive from John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, and close to shops and restaurants
  • Big rooms come with flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi; suites have full kitchens
  • Fairly nice on-site beach (but small, with little room to swim)
  • Small but nice day spa on-site
  • On-site diver’s center and water sports
  • Large heated outdoor pool with a whirlpool and bar service
  • Adequate restaurant on-site serving pizzas and sandwiches

Cons

  • 70-minute drive to The Florida Keys Marathon Airport
  • Bathrooms could use a renovation
  • Suite bedrooms are tiny
  • Slightly worn feeling to the property

Bottom Line

This 153-room property is located in northern Key Largo, a short drive from the John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, and close to shops and restaurants. Not a lot stands out, but there are a few perks -- like a diver’s center on-site, an adequate spa, and a nice private beach (albeit a tiny one, with little room for swimming). Big rooms have flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, and nicer decor than other mid-range chains in the area -- but many bathrooms could use a renovation. Upgrading to a suite will give you a full kitchen and a large sitting area, but smaller sleeping quarters. Book a room with an ocean view to enjoy the beautiful Key Largo sunsets (and avoid facing the nearby highway).

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Off the Overseas Highway, within walking distance of shops and restaurants, and a short drive from the John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park

The Marriott is located on the northern side of Key Largo, right off the Overseas Highway, which connects all the Keys to mainland Florida. Key Largo is the largest Key, and has attracted tourists for years for its proximity to to one of the country's only living coral reefs -- hence the chain restaurants and shopping malls that dot the road. Note that most of the beaches on Key Largo are manmade; some of them are still nice enough, but the real draws here are the diving, snorkeling, boating, and other water activities.

  • 65-minute drive to Miami International Airport
  • 77-minute drive to The Florida Keys Marathon Airport
  • 4-minute drive to the Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park
  • 6-minute walk to The Tradewinds Shopping Center
  • 21-minute drive to the Florida Keys Wild Bird Center
  • 17-minute drive to Harry Harris County Park, a manmade beach with boat ramps and calm water, protected by a coral rock barrier
  • 60-minute drive to Miami
  • 142-minute drive to Key West
