"Great Accommodations, Location, and Price"
A week of bliss, rest and relaxation. Orchard Key is perfectly located on the main venue of Duval, in Key West, making walks to local establishments, nightlife, and dinner convenient. The staff is incredibly nice (Kim, Trudy, Cindy, and Shawn) and friendly. My wife and I were able to rent bikes (cars are really unnecessary here!) and we safely traveled the whole island. There are not a lot of beaches if you're a beach lover, but there are a few hot-spots to catch for basking in the sun, with near perfect temperatures in late April and 10-15mph trade winds that keep you constantly cool. Good eats are to be had in many locations, and while pricey, the overall quality of food is above average (e.g., eat at Santiago's Bodega!). If you like water sports fun there is plenty to be had (e.g., kayaking, parasailing, jet skiing...). We were flourished with bedside chocolates every night, Champagne, complimentary wine vouchers, and outstanding room service. The room was very comfortable (king bed, microwave, fridge, safe box, coffee machine, etc...) and modernized with flat screen monitor and wifi. We booked excursions to Fort Jefferson (fly in, it's worth it) to snorkel and tour, and rented a car on our last day (for 1-day) to drive to The Turtle Hospital in Marathon (a very cool trip) as our exit plan back to NYC.
