Hawks Cay Resort

Hawks Cay Resort Rating: 4.5 Pearls

Hawks Cay Resort has the feel of a small village, due to its massive size and many amenities -- the property even has its own 85-slip marina. Many guests arrive by boat, as the resort is located on Duck Key, a secluded spot far from Key West's main airport. The property largely attracts families looking for a quiet vacation, thanks in part to family-friendly features such as a dolphin experience, kids' club, and multi-bedroom villas. Plus, the beach has calm waters, though some guests may be disappointed by its small size. There is not much to do outside the resort, however, due to the remote location.

Cheeca Lodge & Spa

Cheeca Lodge & Spa Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The 114-room Cheeca Lodge was one of the original luxury properties on Islamorada, dating to 1946 and earning plenty of celebrity cachet over the years (high-profile guests have included George W. Bush). The property was rebuilt after a fire gutted its main building in 2009, and now has bright, spacious rooms with tropical-luxe decor and massive bathrooms. The lush grounds are especially pretty at night, with Tiki-torch-lit paths. But the hotel's beach is manmade -- there's even a rock ledge on the water's edge -- making it muddy at times and less than ideal for swimmers and waders. And the family pool can get crowded; those traveling without children will probably prefer the much calmer adult-only pool.

Sunset Key Guest Cottages, a Westin Resort

Sunset Key Guest Cottages, a Westin Resort Rating: 4.5 Pearls

This 40-room resort caters to the upscale traveler with luxurious, beach-chic cottages and high-end amenities. It is located on Sunset Key, a residential island off Key West, and is affiliated to the Westin Key West, with which it shares some features, such as the fitness center and the restaurants (though only guests of Sunset Key can use the on-site amenities; Westin guests do not have access to them). The hotel itself has wonderful amenities, including a lovely pool, a gorgeous beach with palm trees and clear waters, and a pleasant spa. Its location, though idyllic and exclusive, might be somewhat inconvenient for travelers who want to be close to shops and restaurants (the hotel only has one eatery on-site).

Coral Lagoon Resort and Marina

Coral Lagoon Resort and Marina Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The Coral Lagoon Resort & Marina has 25 airy, cheerful cottage units that dwarf typical hotel rooms. They're tasteful and homey, with a tropical color palate of yellows, greens, and blues; full kitchens; porches; and high-tech amenities including flat-screen TVs with cable, DVD players, and iPod docks. Its location on Marathon makes it popular with sport fishermen, and the property's marina make it especially convenient for guests with boats. The lack of services makes it a better fit for do-it-yourself travelers, however; those looking for more pampering and less space should head to Cheeca Lodge on Islamorada.

Marriott Key Largo Bay Beach Resort

Marriott Key Largo Bay Beach Resort Rating: 4.0 Pearls

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).

The Westin Key West Resort & Marina

The Westin Key West Resort & Marina Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This 178-room waterfront hotel in Old Town Key West is a real resort, with dozens of features, including boat rentals, shops, a fitness center, and a marina. However, it’s not quite up to the standards of other Westin properties, with somewhat bare contemporary rooms, cramped bathrooms, a pool that's a bit small for the size of the hotel, and a location right by a busy and noisy cruise ship dock. There’s nothing really bad about the resort, but there’s nothing outstanding either -- it’s just slightly better than adequate. Also, some of the amenities, like the spa, are at the sister property on Sunset Key, a 7-minute boat ride from the Westin.

Hyatt Key West Resort & Spa

Hyatt Key West Resort & Spa Rating: 4.0 Pearls

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.

Southernmost on the Beach

Southernmost on the Beach Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Southernmost on the Beach is a Key West favorite. The hotel has lovely architectural details such as arched doorways, crown molding, bay window seats, and porthole windows. Many rooms have balconies, and some have corner, wrap-around balconies with ocean views that are truly spectacular. Polished rooms are decorated in soothing, beach-inspired tones. Highlights here include the spectacular beach, long pool, private sunbathing pier, and sunny fitness center. The hotel is located on the far end of Duval street, giving guests easy access to Key West's famous bars and restaurants without the annoyance of nighttime noise. With hammocks strung between palm trees and Adirondack chairs looking out over the ocean, this 124-room hotel provides the perfect environment to relax.

Hilton Key Largo Resort

Hilton Key Largo Resort Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The Hilton is a mid-range hotel on the southern part of Key Largo. Rooms have fresh, contemporary decor, separate sitting areas (complete with sofa beds), and balconies. The tiny, shaded beach isn't exceptional, but it's pretty good for the Keys, where the beaches are all manmade. If you prefer the pool, however, you'll be just fine: The pool area is modern and sunny, and a pool bar makes grabbing drinks and snacks easy.

Sheraton Suites Key West

Sheraton Suites Key West Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The Sheraton Suites is a mid-sized, all-suite hotel that's across a busy street from Smathers Beach. Suites are spacious with a cozy living area separate from the bedroom, and bathrooms have big marble showers. The hotel is well maintained and amenities are numerous, including a bright, well-equipped gym, big pool with tiki bar, and business center. Downtown Key West and Duval Street are a six-minute drive away -- a hotel shuttle offers free transportation until 11 p.m. -- making this hotel a better fit for families seeking sand and sun than people looking for nearby nightlife.
