Stayed in room 8 which was really nicely done inside and very large, with a full kitchen. It had a balcony with an ocean view but is not the closest room to the ocean. Bed was comfortable. The bathroom doesn't seem to have benefited from the same upgrading as the rest of the room and was quite small and dark and didn't have a fan.
Beach/pool area was quite pleasant if a little smelly towards the south end (but there are lots of smells in the Keys!). Didn't look as though swimming in the sea was possible here.
Unfortunately the aircon unit wouldn't switch on/off in our room, and it was very noisy so we wanted if off at night. We resorted to using the timer which switched the state of it after 1 hour. The toilet also blocked once.
I would not really call this a resort, it's a motel with upgraded rooms and it's very close to the road, although we weren't disturbed by any noise during the night. They have done a good marketing job on the website, the overall 'resort' isn't quite as inviting in real life (inside the room was though). There is not much other than a couple of restaurants within walking distance.
I would recommend this for a quick stopover but not really for more than 1 or 2 nights, largely because of the location.
Staff were really friendly.
My wife and I stayed at pelican cove on a recent 4day trip to islamorada. It was exactly what we were looking for we had a king suite with an ocean view. The building is made in a stair step design that allows for every room to have a private balcony. The room was nice and had recent upgrades. What they did lack was furniture. Our room had the bed, a couch, and a dresser. No end tables or bedside tables. The phone was sitting on the floor next to the couch. That struck me as a bit tacky. But everything was clean and the resort facilities and beach care were great. There is a poolside/beech side bar that is open until 10. They had a small menu but we never had food there. The resort also has kayaks, paddle boards, and other beach toys. There is a marina next door that advertises snorkeling and fishing charters. And Shulas restaurant is also next door. I will definitely go back.
This is not the Ritz or even close but is a nice part of the vintage Keys style. Rooms are simple with kitchenette. Grounds are nice , no beach. Small boat ramp good for our kayak launch. Owners are only there when they want to be (keys disease) lol.. but very nice.
