Resort sits near Duval Street's restaurants and nightclubs
Rooms are on the smaller side
Built in the 1950s, the Southernmost Beach Resort exudes Key West charm. The 261-room property stretches across 6 acres of south Florida's laid-back Key West and features three pools, two beaches and four bars and restaurants. Those looking to relax and embrace the island lifestyle can lay out on the private tanning pier or chill beachside in a hammock. Once you muster up the energy to grab a bite, wander over to the Southernmost Beach Cafe, which offers tropical drinks and Caribbean cuisine in a casual oceanfront setting. If you're interested in a bit more action, stroll a block over to Key West's lively Duval Street, which gets particularly festive after dark thanks to its bustling bars and drag queen nightclubs. Once you're ready to sleep, head back to your accommodations, which include minifridges, coffee makers, complimentary Wi-Fi access and large flat-screen TVs. Recent visitors said that although small and a bit pricey, rooms at the Southernmost Beach Resort are comfortable and offer great views from the higher floors. Note: The property charges a $35 daily resort fee that covers pool and beach access, beach chair and towel use, internet access, concierge services and various resort activities.

Critic Reviews



This sprawling property offers several options including beachside accommodations with many upscale aspects. The guest units are well appointed and comfortable with dependable service.


Spacious rooms offer a host of modern comforts including Nespresso machines, and many have lovely, private balconies, some with spectacular ocean views. Highlights here include the beautiful, sandy beach with a private sunbathing pier and hammocks strung between palm trees, as well as the outdoor pool with two poolside bars.



While the location means you don't have to deal with the hustle and bustle of downtown unless you want to, this end of town gets its share of car and foot traffic. Each room has a sophisticated color palette of blues and browns (a nice change from the standard bright, tropical overload).

Condé Nast Traveler


This self-proclaimed southernmost hotel in the United States comprises two charming gingerbread-style homes (La Mer and Dewey House) with large front porches and ocean views.
