Fantastic Tiki bar and taco food truck on property. Each cottage was so cute!

The bathroom was literally outside. So if it was raining you are sitting on the toilet in the. Not sure was that wasn't in the brochure!!!!

Very clean, beautiful grounds, very fun Tiki bar onsite. The “cottages” are in many cases like mine, not a real cottage. I my case it was a room attached to another room attached to the office. The room was hard to keep cool, not as pretty as the pictures. My particular room is not pictured in the advertising. I was disappointed in it not being a cottage, in the comfort and appearance of the furnishings and the air conditioning. I stayed 3 of my 5 nights booked.

The waterfront room is a different location so just make sure to read the full description (we wanted the water view). This place is exactly as described. It was super clean inside, updated interior, and comfortable bed. It was nice to wake up and look out onto the canal or sit outside while enjoying morning coffee. There is a Publix, Walgreens, liquor store, and few restaurants all within walking distance. Plenty more options within a short drive.

Very cute and small. Comfortable bed. Enjoyed a drink at the tiki bar, the taco stand was yummy too. Only complaint was there was no hot water when taking a shower. Other than that, a good experience.

Tropical Cottages is a cute place with beautiful landscaping. We stayed in Cottage 3 and it was nice. If you can't sleep with noise, though, this may not be for you. The walls are uninsulated, and the air conditioner is loud and close to the bed. We turned the AC off because it wasn't too hot, but the squeaking ceiling fan drove me crazy. It is also under the flight path of an airport runway, and close to the Overseas Highway so there is traffic noise. The price point was great for Marathon, though, so if your priority is saving money, go for it. I'd stay there again, but my husband who is a very light sleeper would not.

I gave the overall excellent review, even though on the individual evaluation components I did not, because the property/unit was so unique: ten (I believe) separate and unique 'cottages' that were functional, comfortable, charming, clean and relatively private. Tropical Cottages served our purpose so well for the value of a couple of nights stay in striking distance to Key West, for me, my wife, her father and our chihuahua, Lily- without the typical $350-400 per night price tag. And for being pet-friendly, it was also nose-friendly- no residual odor from the previous guests which is not uncommon with such accomodations. Thumbs up- we'd gladly stay there again!

Tv did not work. Fire stick only/air conditioner very loud

Hotel room was not cool. A/c was working but still it was hot in the room. We called over the kid that was at the front desk and he did confirm that the room was not cool and gave us a fan. It was myself, wife, and 3 year old son. He suffers from asthma and sever eczema clinically documented. The kid called the manager and told her the problem. We asked for a refund and the manager said no. We weren’t there not even an hour after we checked in. She said that she needs to rent the room out for that day if not no refund. Very horrible customer service and unpleasant manager. No consideration at all.

Amazing little place. Will definitely stay here again!

A nice accommodation with the Keys theme!😀 Great location, nice tiki bar area friendly staff!

Excellent all around. Super friendly and efficient check in. Just a note, this isn’t the Hilton or a 5 star beach resort, however it’s near perfect for what it is. Very very nicely kept older private cottages. It’s cute, it’s quaint and I’d definitely stay again.
