Vom gestrigen Regen ist heut überhaupt nichts mehr zu merken:
bei strahlend blauem Himmel liegen wir am Hotelstrand und in dem wunderschön angelegten Garten vom Key Largo Grande. Glück haben wir auch noch: als wir am Steg sitzen schwimmt ein Manatee vorbei :-)
Natürlich müssen wir noch einmal zum Fisch essen gehen auf Key Largo. Gute Wahl: Fish House!
Wir bleiben den Vormittag über noch in Key West und genießen die Atmosphäre und den Charme dieser Stadt.
Jetzt gehts auf zum Bahia Honda State Park!
Die Insel Bahia Honda ("tiefe Bucht") Key ist 212 ha groß und bietet super Strände!
Das große Highlight ist aber natürlich die alte Eisenbahnbrücke der …
After picking up our Dodge Caliber we hit the road and all I can say is purchasing the American program for Sat Nav was a brilliant move. I got to sit back and relax and it was a nice easy drive down. There are restaurants and shops all the way dotted down there apart from about 30 miles after entering the Everglades area.
We pulled into …
... to them to Sundowners and as we arrived the sun was just setting so we raced, as it sank out of site behind the trees to the waterfront where we saw a Pirate ship approaching against the purple dusky skyline. Then I saw tarpon as the dock! They are HUGE!! You can apparently feed them! But it was getting dark. We then managed to somehow snag a perfect Birthday table for Jym to have dinner right by the water and enjoyed the never ending sunset. ...
... however, wanting to make it to the site before nightfall.
After some tribualtions finding the right exit from the highway, we found Key Largo Kampground, which was a nice park with wifi (huarrah) and a pool. The engine had barely been turned off and the 'puppy' made level, before Elles was cozzied up and in the swimming pool.
What a wonderful variety today has yielded and the excitement of the Keys lies ahead.....

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Key Largo Resort
My husband and I stayed at the Westin Key LArgo resort Oct1-4th and had an awesome time. I dont remember the names, just the states where the staff was from which was included on their name plates. First of all, we were a little nervous passing all of the hotel names we noticed from doing research on the web prior to making the reservation at the westin. Let me tell you that nothing is as it appears on the web so be weary if you are staying anywhere other than the Westin, Marriott, and believe it or not Best Western Suites which we saw.. Everything else looks like rat traps..
The Staff was great
The Staff was great, when I mentioned it was my husbands Birthday, one of the nice ladies at the check-in desk went to the message board in the lobby that greets customers, and placed his name on the board with Happy Birthday greetings, my husband was Thrilled to see his name there. The room was nice and clean, from our balcony the view was of very thick forrest, this hotel has a tropical feel. After returning from a fishing trip, we called the restaurant and ask if they wolud cook our catch, they were more than happy to do so. We enjoyed our stay and plan on staying here again in the future. A nice place to just getaway to.
Married here! 3/3/03
My husband and I were married on the beach at the Westin on March 3, 2003. It was beautiful!! Both of our entire families and us stayed at the Westin for 3 nights. The service was excellent, the food terrific and as for weddings, they did a great job. Two words... Heavenly Bed!!
Our first room on the second floor had a slight view of the bay, our Jacuzzi suite on the 4th floor(which was immaculate and huge) had a great view of the bay. The seclusion and beauty of this resort makes it a great place to relax...even before a wedding. We loved it and can't wait to go back!
August 5-8, 2003 My husband and I booked this hotel for a romantic getaway over their website. WARNING DO NOT BELIEVE WHAT YOU SEE ON THEIR WEBSITE IS WHAT YOU GET..The Westin is way overpriced, the staff was horrible and the food was entirely over priced. The pool was actually acrossed the parking lot from the rooms and the beach was tiny, the tiki bar offered watered down cocktails and way overpriced for the quality. We checked in, walked around the grounds saw our room and realized this was not what we expected from a Westin Hotel nor was their website honest. We complained, refused to spend our romantic vacation here and left. The only promising thing about this hotel was the manager gave us a full refund of what we had prepaid. Without another hotel booked, we ventured off to the Marriott. Which for anyone I would highly recommend.
June 23 - 25, 2003, we stayed at the Westin two nights, we booked a room with an ocean view suite at a very good "web" price - but when we arrived we were told the ocean view rooms were all booked - they put us in a suite overlooking the forest - we didn't travel from Atlanta to catch a view of the forest...it isn't much of a hotel by Westin standards - it pretends to be 4 stars - but I think more like 3. It was pretty crowded, the beach wasn't very comfortable, the pools were small, we noticed some big prices on the food and restaurants and decided to eat out - and with great success (you have to try HOBO's!!!). We greatly enjoyed our stay at the 2 - 3 star Amoray the next few nights - did some great diving and really enjoyed the staff there. If you want luxury in the Keys, maybe the Westin at Key Largo is what you get, next time we'll pass on the so called luxury and stay where we get good value for our money. The Westin at Key Largo isn't it!
We returned from the Westin Resort this past Sunday, 7/20/03, after a terrific week in a great hotel. The grounds were immaculate! Trees, flowers & foliage everwhere. As you may know, the resort is located in an enviromentaly protected forrest consisting of mangrove & other such trees. Would recomend a bayview room on the third or fourth floor. Our room was on the second floor, which was just below the tops of the trees, so the bayview was obstructed yet still beautifull. The rooms & common areas are all newly renovated & quite comfortable. Food was great, allthough we ate off premiss more than on because we have so many favorite stops in the area. Would highly recomend the "gourmet" restaurant, Treetops. A bit expensive but extremly good. All the employees were very good & actually seemed happy to have a job! We paid $117.00/night for a forest view room facing the bay. The regular rate was $149.00, but we got a $32.00 discount by paying in full a week ahead of time. The savings paid for the car rental, so consider it a good option. Only mild disappointment; pool & beach bars were a bit old & rundown, but they supplied our needs, BEER! The beach area is typical Keys; small, narrow & rocky. To all first time Key visiters, the Keys have virtually no beaches, so don't be shocked. The coral reef is why.
My husband and I spent 3 days at the Westin, Key Largo - June 18-21, 2003. It was fantastic. The place is beautiful. It is located right off the highway so it is close to all that Key Largo has to offer, but...
The location is quite lovely, but the staff soured the week. The front desk clerk was curt and dismissive when I inquired where my room refrigerator was, which I ordered the week before, and she made no effort to make me feel welcome or appear to even care. The room was adequate, but one trashcan for three people for a week? Ridiculous - and numerous attempts to get another one was a waste. The restaurant was overpriced and poorly staffed, we ordered our drinks for dinner and a screaming, out of control child was carrying on at another table. The waitress (nor anyone else) ever came back! We sat nearly 15 minutes, without drinks or anything else, and finally got up to leave, and the hostess chased us down, wanting to know where we were going. I explained to her that I wasn't going to pay those prices and listen to the screaming child the whole time, perhaps the dining room manager should have suggested to the family that they could have had their meal to go and not ruin other peoples' evenings, and she said "oh well", and walked off. Unbeleiveable! We requested new complimentary robes after the cleaning staff took them, and never received them after repeated calls. This place is a joke, calling itself a Westin is a waste and there are way too many nice hotels in Key Largo to spend your time and money to put up with this crap -
If you like to visit places that are over rated and over priced, where the food is below average and way over priced with poor table service to boot, and where you cut your feet on the beach because there is no sand, and where gratuity is AUTOMATICALLY included, but not disclosed, and where the elevators aren't fixed when they break and where fire alarms go off in the middle of the night for no reason, and where you get charged an average of 2 times as much as anywhere else in Key Largo, and wehre there is really NOTHING to do..then this place is for you...I wouldn't even go back again if it was my ONLY option for a vacation... there are about 100 places in the keys that make this place seem like the true rip off it is... don't believe the statement that "you don't even have to leave the resort"...don't go...
After a week partying in Miami and Key West we decided to stop over here for one night, on our way to Ft Lauderdale. We stayed a week! This hotel is lovely - our room had a balcony but no real view, but was a suite. Staff are all excellent . There are 2 pools - one for families, one adult only, which is good, and the private beach is lovely. You needn't leave the resort hotel at all, but of course then you'd be missing out on everything else that KL has to offer. There are 3 places to eat - all really good and priced around the average for KL. Fabulous views from all restaurants, we found breakfasts good value - not worth driving out elsewhere. For a touch of luxury & somewhere to chill out - this is superb. Take a hotel discount voucher book with you and use it to get a great deal - only mid week in winter though - weekends are busy & top prices apply.
