3 Star Hotels in Florida Keys
Stay in Florida Keys’ three-star hotels and inns for a wonderfully laid-back vibe. Comfortable, well-equipped and brimming with funky beach character, they make for the perfect base from which to explore.
Palm-fringed, stilted inns with cosy rooms, tropical gardens and refreshing swimming pools offer a more intimate setting, while larger three-star resorts are great value for money. Adults-only mid-range hotels are popular in the Florida Keys, so if you’re travelling without children, you can enjoy peace and quiet. The islands are small enough to be wandered on foot, so wherever you stay you’ll be near beaches, surf shacks and grill bars.
What to Do in Florida Keys
Whether you choose three-star accommodation in the main islands of Key Largo, Islamorada or Key West, or venture off to one of the smaller islets along the Gulf of Mexico, you will find plenty to keep you entertained.
The beaches are an obvious starting point, so you can either lie back on the sand with a good book or head off to discover thriving reefs on a snorkelling or scuba-diving tour. Hire a canoe and paddle through the mangroves, while away the hours perusing the gift shops and quirky boutiques, visit a local art gallery or museum, or watch the sun set at Key West’s famous Sunset Celebration.
Enjoy a Seafood Bonanza
Bring surround by the ocean means that fish and seafood are the cornerstones of the Florida Keys’ cuisine, and you can chow down on conch fritters, lobster and crab every night of your stay. The famously friendly and relaxed atmosphere of the islands is rarely more evident than in its grill bars, beach shacks and ice-cream parlours, where sea views are almost a given.
Should you want a special dining experience, you’ll also be able to find swanky restaurants and bistros where you can get dressed up to enjoy a romantic evening on an alfresco terrace. Wherever you choose to eat, make sure you try the famous key lime pie before returning, satisfied, to your three-star hotel in the Florida Keys.
