The Casa Marina was the very first of Key West’s resorts and after a major facelift, still presents itself as one of the Keys’ most luxurious hotels. Each of the 311 guest rooms creates a sense of classic combined with contemporary, offering unbeatable comfort and amenities. Boasting a special dining setting is ‘Sun Sun’, where breakfast, lunch and dinner are served al fresco against the backdrop of the ocean. Snacks are available at ‘Ramblers’ whilst ‘RUMba’ stocks the most extensive collection of – yes, rum – in all of Key West.
If you’re not already sufficiently ‘chilled’, stroll along the dramatic boardwalk to the two largest pools and largest private beach in Key West, or seek out rejuvenation in ‘Spa al Mare’ – and you even get to use the facilities of the Casa Marina’s sister hotel, The Reach.
