Wow... What a long 2 days we just had, 2 more parks from open to close.
Sunday we did Universal/Islands of Adventure it was tons of fun. They have 2 great roller coasters, The Hulk, and dueling dragons which we rode a number of times each. They also had 2 awesome water rides, which we a got douched on. It definitely was a fun filled day …
... the waves were not bad at all the boat rocked quite heavily when we were anchored…well tied up…whatever they call it when you are out in the sea. We stopped at the Spiegel Grove wreck first which is a deep dive and so not anything to see via snorkel. It was apparently a HUGE wreck and Gary and Jill both loved it. The boat was rocking a lot and Jym and I had little sleep last night. I am not sure if it was something we ...
... interesting large bird ...and stick insects in a tank on the desk! we moved on (after Elles had managed to trap her finger in an educational wheel of fun!!)
The next stop was a more substantial one (with less finger pain). A boardwalk stretched into the mangrove swamp, taking us to viewing spots for wildlife. Greg, being the keen-eyed hunter gatherer spotted an alligator sat on a nest, far in the distance. With his ...
... someone, but they were so vague and it sounded so complicated that I thought forget it! Upgraded from a backpacker and opted for paying out for the Super Shuttle, but well worth it as it was door to door.
Florida City is about an hour south of Miami, and is surprisingly small. The hostel's just off SW344 street, two blocks down from the main US1 highway, but is a magical throwback to the sixties. The back yard is a ...
... take a look anyway and were happy to discover that most of the ‘full’ people had gone home already (it was a Sunday) so we easily found a camping spot. We wanted to go down to the beach for a dip but were told that the combination of saltwater crocs, squishy, clingy algae and broken glass in the sand would make it a poor choice. Instead, we set up camp, lit a fire and had a few afternoon brewskies.
At some stage in the afternoon, I noticed that the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Key Largo
We felt like this Holiday Inn was more than a hotel: it was more like a mini resort. There was lush landscaping, two pools (one with a waterfall), a hot tub, a tiki bar, and solo entertainment by the pool that was extremely relaxing. Yes, you can tell that it is an older building, but every effort is made to keep it well maintained and clean. The restaurant served excellent food at reasonable prices. The Friday buffet is not to be missed. It was fabulous. The breakfast buffet was very good as well. There was a lot of fresh fruit, hot breakfast items, and your own little pot of coffee so you did not run out. Our breakfast was included with our dive/hotel package. If you are a diver as most people are who stay here, there are several nearby dive operations to choose from. There is a discount dive supply store right next door. Staff at the hotel were very friendly and hard working. We cannot wait to go back. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us. Dudley and Debbie
One of our best hotel stay
Stayed with my family in this hotel for a night. Unbelievably maintained rooms and an eye for the guest's comfort. Very friendly receptionist and extremely gentle caretakers. Felt at home 1200 miles away ! We are definitely going back, but this time for a week. The location is very convenient to local attractions, restaurants and activities in Key Largo. My child loved it. Very family friendly atmosphere. Two big pools and spa, awesome tiki bar !
My Husband and I just returned from our Florida getaway. The Holiday Inn Key Largo--was part of our wonderful stay in the Sunshine state. What a great experience at the Holiday Inn--the staff was courteous, attentive, but laid back as well. The Tiki Bar by the pool was wonderful---the service--while super nice, was a bit slow--but that is the way of the Keys--all in good time! The drinks were delicious !! Our room-126 was just off the pool patio, it was great. There was live music all day and night on saturday. Even though the room was ground level and off the pool deck-we did not loose any privacy or find the noise from that area too loud. We would stay in that room again. As another review stated---do not be concerned that this hotel is right on Route 1....it is a little slice of tropical heaven. Glass bottom boat right from the marina was so cool. and Fun for the whole family--feed the Tarpon at Robbie's-behind the hungry Tarpon restaurant at MM 77.5.:-) Enjoy. We can't wait to return. It was a fabulous trip. Thanks Holiday Inn!
We stayed in the Holiday Inn for only 1 night. We got a King, NS room looking at the pool. We got the room for $153 on the internet. The rooms are nice. Pretty average, but nice. The hotel was also nice. Not bad for the money. We decided to stay for another night when they told us the rate went to $209 for a Friday night. So we went and stayed in the Westin Beach Resort Key Largo for $250. The Westin is MUCH nicer than the Holiday Inn. The Westin has its own beach. From the Holiday Inn you can take a nice walk around the Marina's and see all kinds of wildlife. The food was ok but pricey for some things. The staff was nice. Overall this was a good value for $150/night. I would not pay more! The people attracted to the Holiday Inn are not the same type of people who stay at the Westin Beach Resort. I'll leave it at that.
I booked a four-night hotel-dive package through Sea Dwellers Dive Center, which is across the street from the Holiday Inn.
Very nice, good value
my wife and I stayed here in late January 2004. was pleasantly surprised. room was ok but pool area was great. tiki bar was nice with very economical happy hours. would stay here again. oh by the way eat at the Fish House just north of hotel.
We thoroughly enjoyed our 1 week stay at the Holiday Inn, Key Largo.
The complex is much larger and more picturesque than what you see in a drive-by. We loved the 3 pools available for us and the marina setting.
Try and have the breakfast buffet included with your room charge as it is well worth it! The staff are very friendly and so are the cats!!!
The state park is just down the road and is great for swimming or snorkeling. The only negative for the Keys is a lack of golf courses.
We would stay there again as it provides great value for the money........
Holiday Inn Key Largo was above and beyond the reviews I read here on Trip Advisor. I booked this trip on the great deal I got through Expedia, but only after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. With two large pools, lush gardens, spa and tiki hut(with two TVs,and unlimited NCAA and NFL football) this was up our alley. The kids loved the pools and all of us enjoyed the excellent breakfast buffet. This hotel is extemely well run, very clean and all who work here, and I mean ALL, treated us very kindly. Since the marina is right there, we had to take advantage of the many water activities available The first was Quicksilver with Tony and Lynn, which was great fun for all of us. The second was Fins and Feathers with Toby and Dave , and even though the fish weren't biting as I had hoped, I gained a friend for life. After an afternoon with Toby, you'll want to chuck it all, and live the rest of your years in the Key sunshine! We tried several restaurants on or near the Holiday Inn and do yourself a HUGE favor and bypass Coconuts.
Don't be fooled by the commercial strip this Holiday Inn is located on.
Once you get inside, it is very nice (and very clean). Walk through the restaurant and the rear doors to a beautiful pool area. We were extremely happy with our choice because of the room and pools.
Breakfast buffet was okay, but expensive. No long beaches in this area.
We probably would not choose to travel to the Keys again, but that has nothing to do with this hotel.
Place was clean, nice and staff was friendly and even motherly. Nice bar around pool. we enjoyed every day there, but could have done without the diving certificates every morning in the pool
