Travel Blogs from Key West
Back in the U.S.A. and with the mobile phone now working again, I get a chance to catch up with Megan. She regales me with tales of snow and no school and Miles and her wonderful husband and more. Ryan reports that all is well at ej4. He says that the blog makes him think that I am enjoying the trip and I verify that. Truly, life is good. Only one thing would make it better but for that I need patience. Please, Lord, give me patience. ...
... either of us will be able to work a full day without naps when school starts! We had dinner at Jack Flats, a sports bar and restaurant. After dinner we started our crawl down Duval. You can tell the weekend has arrived as the crowds were crazy! We were in and out of several establishments and had a great time people watching. On the agenda for Saturday is a walk to the cemetery, the southern most point, and a ghost tour in the evening when we will get to meet the infamous Robert the ...
Up at sparrow's **** yet again.
Checked out of my Fort Myer's Beach accommodation and started the hike over to the terminal where I would be catching the 'Key West Express' ferry to Key West.
I had decided to walk it given I had spent about $50 more than I had intended to on yesterday's taxi. In hindsight I probably should have taken the cab as the walk with a 25kg fully laden back-pack plus a day-pack proved relatively ...
... both locals and tourists alike, flock to the water's edge to experience a multicultural happening and to watch the sun sink into the Gulf of Mexico.
We grabbed two Mojitos from a street cart, staked out a seat on a giant planter and watched the world go by. The sunset was awesome and we spent quite a while talking with another couple who tried to sit on the planter with us, but couldn’t quite make the jump up. She was a widow, ...
... out and took my hand and as he held it put his other hand on top. He introduced himself and said he was from Jacksonville and he then he said "I just wanted you to know that you are a very beautiful woman. I wanted you to know that." He then just walked away and smiled. No one has called me beautiful in years (except Jym and I always think he's lying...lol). It was nice to be noticed and to be looked at by a stranger but it just reminded ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hyatt Beach House Resort Key West
Beautiful surroundings and very relaxing but close enough to the nightlife and other activities. I liked it so much that I am in the process of purchasing a resale contract there.
Great Place to Stay
We just visited Key West last week during Spring Break. The hotel was in great shape, was full, but not full of 'spring breakers'. The property seemed to mainly have couples and families. The two bedroom/Two bath format is great and worked well for two couples. The rooms are very well equipped for a week long vacation (3 TV's, VCR, Stereo, good kitchen amenaties, porch, etc..). We found the staff to be very helpful and enjoyed the property. Pool is great, no real swimming beach to speak of, but fishing and watersport rentals were on the property. We used the BBQ's they provide on the beach for cookouts several evenings and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We will definately return to the HYATT Beach House the next time we visit Key West.
Awesome resort! We were very impressed with this resort. In a word...Peaceful! The grounds are extremely well maintained with lots of exotic plants and trees. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very well appointed with large bedrooms. The master bedroom includes a jacuzzi tub and shower. The second bedroom has a full bathroom. Both bedrooms have comfortable beds complete with down pillows. The peaceful atmosphere of this resort results partially from its location away from downtown. Takes about 10 or 15 minutes to get to Duval Street depending on traffic. Taxi ride cost about $12.75 but is worth it considering the hassel and cost of parking near Duval. The pool is only 4 and 1/2 feet deep but is quite adequate for a relaxing swim. There is a hot tub and a Tiki Hut that can supply all the needs for a "day at the beach". White sand is on one side of the pool and goes almost all the way up to the pool. There is a small sand beach should you want to see the water. Palm trees reach up to the third floor and allow for a view of the pool and garden area with limited views of the bay water. We highly recommend this resort...you won't be disappointed. We found this resort to exceed the highest reiviews we read about it on this site.
You won't find anything better than this. Believe it !!
Without a doubt, we have not found anything that comes close to the Hyatt Beach Resort, Key West, Florida. We will definitely return to Key West, but only if we are able to make reservations at this location.
Check it out, you won't be dissappointed.
Loved the Hyatt Beach HOuse
First trip to the Keys and it was fantastic. Took the drive from Ft. Lauderdale, directions from Alamo Rent-a-Car were super. Weather was terrific and did a leisurely two day tour, stopping in Key Largo and Marathon for a night each before arriving at our lodgings. Key West was spectacular, as were the sunsets down at Mallory Square, though we did not get to see the famous "Green Flash". Sunset Sail was great, tarpoon fishing was great, but the water was too rough for our scuba trip as we are bathtub divers too used to the calm seas in the Caymans. The restaurants and bars were too numerous to count and all were a blast! Overall, my wife and two "twenty-something" kids gave the Florida Keys a 'thumbs up' and a "TEN"!
Very nice quiet condo palace
Beach House is perfect get away. Condo Rooms are very nice especially the master bedroom. It was great having the kitchen and washer and dryer. Only negative would be the distance from Duval. Its a cab ride, and that is extra dough. Don't be fooled in thinking you are going to Key West to get away and will only visit Duval to eat, drink and shop.
Everything you'll want outside of the sun and pool is in old Towne so be prepared for that. Pool at Beach house was super. No Beach like most all of Key WEst. We went with other couple and shared expense, but this place is perfect for families too. Goin back at end of month but going to stay in Old Towne this trip.
My parents and I stayed her for ten days at the beginning of August 2003, and we loved it!
Beautiful and accomodating at the Beach House!
After the long drive it was very refreshing to have a no problem check in. Plenty of free parking,elevators and available baggage carts. The room had it's AC blowing COLD! Clean bright and beautiful rooms! The pool area was great all set up like a real beach. Plenty of beach towels provided. Margarita parties (free of course) and info was plentiful. Very helpful staff. I will be back!
We are not vacation club members but we got a deal on this place through expedia. It is a really gourgeous property. We had 6 adults in 1 condo and there was plenty of room. It's very new and clean. The staff were great. Tamie at the beach hut is is really helpful. We rented kayaks and bikes from her at a very reasonable rate. She can also arrange private snorkeling and sunset trips from the Hotel. I would only caution that this property is not centrally located. For us bikes were a great way to get down to Duval and more central areas of Key West. Otherwise you'd have to drive and deal with parking (we took a cab in the evening, but it's expensive and can be a bit difficult to get back by cab.) It's really relaxing here, but if you want to be at the center of Duval street and marina nightlife and activities you might want to look into something more central. Also, don't drive from Miami to key west! We wasted over 10 hours of our vacation because of traffic.
Relax at the Beach House
We are a Hyatt Vacation Club member - and have stayed at the Beach House four times. We love it. It is quiet (which we like), on the Gulf side - just before you enter Key West. It is not close to "old town" - which some people might like, but we don't. Each night has a beautiful sunset. There are not a lot of activities going on at the Beach House - and not too many kids. The pool is nice, but not very deep(five feet only). The rooms are very well layed out and comfortable.
