Trip Advisor Review: Great Vacation Spot

My family spent 3 days at Ocean Pointe Suites in a beautiful 2 bedroom condo with full kitchen this past weeekend and the ocean view was amazing.  The olympic size swimming pool and the kids park we really enjoyed and visited every day.

We took our boat on the beautiful coastal waters where we catch lobsters! We cooked the lobsters in the kitchen of our condo. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Overall, it we cant wait to go back!

Stayed August 2011, traveled with family

Trip Advisor Review: Clean and Convenient with a Beautiful View

All the rooms have beautiful views of the ocean. Guarded condo community makes you feel very safe walking to the pool and marina. Rooms are clean and have kitchens, so you can eat in or out. We love eating out. All the restaurants have great food with fresh fish. Our favorite is The Fish House. The yellowtail snapper is delicious! We like the proximity of the hotel to the dive shop that my husband goes to. He likes to hunt lobsters with his friends during the August lobster season.

Trip Advisor Review: Great Family Vacation

First of all, this place is in Tavernier, FL, which is a tiny portion of the Southern end of Key Largo. It's 10 minutes south of the tourist area of Key Largo and 10 minutes north of the tourist area of Islamorada so it was very quiet. The pool was big enough for the large number of people that were on the deck and in the water and while the beach was a typical Ocean Side Florida Keys beach, I enjoyed the harder surface than normal South Florida sandy beaches to launch our kayak from. While we didn't have a boat other than the kayak, the small marina seemed adequate for anyone who needed to use it. The outer parking lot was filled with other boats, I can only assume that these are mainly from property owners that are there seasonally but plenty of boats coming and going from the boat ramp. No long haul like a lot of the marinas to get out to the ocean, this resort is right on the water with an incredible view of the ocean with almost any room. We stayed in building 4 which seemed to have the closest spot to the ocean so that may be biased.

We had a pretty serious maintenance issue our first night there after the maintenance crew had gone home where the fridge compressor stopped working, but they allowed us to use a room on the same floor of the building we were in for the night and the manager got us switched to that room in the morning. (We probably would have switched that night, but the kids were already sleeping when we realized the problem.)

Full Washer/Dryer in the room which we only used to dry off our personal towels from the previous days. (Yes, they have plenty of towels in the rooms for all 6 of us, but our kids prefer using their own cartoon towels.)
To expand, the beach area is a seagrass bed that is quite shallow (2-3 feet max) the entire way out past the buoys but that's to be expected off the southern shore of Tavernier.

We WILL be back here next summer, but maybe earlier in the summer/late spring as August is prime-time moon jellyfish migration season.

Hotels.com Review: Wonderful Memories

This was the first leg of our honeymoon vacation and what a way to start it out!!! The grounds were beautiful, the staff was friendly, and the room and views were unbelievable.  I would strongly recommend Ocean Pointe to anyone looking for a clean room, relaxing vacation and a wonderful time!

Hotels.com Review: A Hidden Treasure in the Keys

Our entire experience was lovely.  The rooms were clean and spacious.  Beautiful view!  We will definitely be back!!

Expedia Review: Great Location & Bargain for the Keys

Location is great for many outdoor activiies.  Having a condo versus hotel room is ideal for a family with multiple night stay.  Loved having a washer/dryer in our condo.  Employees were very friendly and accommodating.  Resort was quiet and restful, but this may be the timing of when we were there (as resort was not very full).  Lots of resort amenities, includiung small beach, kayaks, docks, pool, basketball net, tennis courts and small restaurant.

Expedia Review: Best Trip

The room was everything I could have asked for.  The property was beautiful and the staff was extremely friendly.

Expedia Review: A True Gem in the Florida Keys

This hotel is so clean and fresh compared to the many tiny cottage style hotels in the Keys.  You are basically staying in your own little condo while you are there.  Ocean Pointe will now be our first choice when booking in the Keys.  This hotel is a very short drive to downtown Islamorada, and all its fine dining and shopping.  It is also surrounded by many options for charter fishing and open water diving.  The room comes with a full kitchen as well as cooking utensils.  There are hair dryers in the bathroom, so no need to bring them.  They also provide wonderful beach towels so no need to bring those bulky items either.

Orbitz Review: We had a great trip and would go again

We were very pleased with our room and the location.  It was clean, comfortable and very easy to come and go.  We did not spend a lot of time in our room because we were there for the water activities in the area.  We snorkeled at John Pennakamp (10 min away) and Bahia State Park (well worth the 1 hour drive).  Awesome fish and coral viewing.  We also kayaked which was pretty fun, but not nearly as exciting as the snorkeling.  Be sure to pick up a few books and maps when you check in.  This will give you some coupons and ideas of places to go.

Orbitz Review: Quiet, Peaceful, All for a Good Price

We only stayed one night on our way south to Key West.  The complex was very quiet and peaceful.  There is a nice section of beach with a nice boardwalk.  The suite was very cofmortable and worked well for two couples.  There is a grocery store a couple miles away and several nice restaurants.  We would definitely stay here again if the chance arises.

Orbitz Review: Great Family Vacation

We were coming back from a cruise and wanted to explore the Florida Keys.  Ocean Pointe is a great location to do just that.  The hotel itself was wonderful, it had a breathtaking view.  It was very spacious.  The grounds are very well kept, and there are a lot of things for the kids to do around there, kayaks, tennis, boating, etc.  I would stay there again, and do recommend this place.  The only down side is, if you want to get into the water bring water shoes, it has hard rock to walk on, it is not your traditional beach with waves, but it is beautiful, and you can get into the water.  Pool was large and kids enjoyed as well.  We were close to Robbie's Marina in Islamorada and highly recommend that if you have kids with you.  You can purchase a bucket of fish and feed the tarpon fish which turned out to be a lot of fun.  I can't wait to go back!

Booking.com Review: Huge apartment

Huge apartment, very nice!!.  It is like home - we had everything . . . washer/dryer was also in the apartment.

Booking.com Review: Family of Six

The price was a positive, with enough space for a family of six.  It had beautiful views out two sliding glass doors and was close to many activities and dining, although somewhat secluded.  It was a great place to stay.

Trip Advisor Review: Great Place - Great Value

We stayed in a 2-bedroom/2-bath with kitchen and had everything we needed!  The place is clean, friendly and really reasonably priced for what you get.  The marina was perfect and well equipped.  We stayed in a room just steps to our boat.  The accommodations were perfect, nice furnishings, very clean and well equipped.  We will be back for sure and have already recommended to friends!

Trip Advisor Review: Once in a Lifetime Trip

Accomodation excellent for the price.  Yes, bugs are an issue - you are in a hot humid environment by water!  My suggestion - go to the local supermarket and buy a spray!  Worked for me who always gets bitten wherever I am!  A relaxing enjoyable time with all the mod cons you would need!

Have Stayed There in the Past and Will Be Back!

We have visited the Keys approximately 15 times and have stayed at Ocean Pointe Suites many of those trips.  As always we were VERY satisfied.  We were in a two bedroom ocean view room on the fourth floor of Building 4.  The room was very clean and well decorated.  It was very relaxing to see the ocean first thing in the morning and the full moon shining on the ocean at night was outstanding.  We had some car trouble and the Front Desk set up a late checkout so we could get our car fixed at Wheaton's in Key Largo.

Trip Advisor Review: WE LOVE THIS PLACE!!

My Family and I always stay at this place when we come to the Keys.  It is absolutely perfect and affordable if you book in advance.  We have never been disappointed.  It is a full size condo with all the amenities.  I highly recommend this establishment for anyone considering a stay in the Keys.  It is quiet and easy to get to.  It has parking for your boat and a boat wash station too.

Trip Advisor Review: Excellent Weekend Getaway

We decided at the last minute to get away for the weekend and did not know of any hotels in the Key Largo/Tavernier area.  I looked on the internet and found this hotel/resort and decided to head on over.   What a great decision.  The staff, including the manager Abdul, were very helpful and attentive to our needs.  The beach and pool area was wonderful and safe for my children to swim in.  The accomodations were perfect and included a washer/dryer which came in very handy.  This will be our new weekend getaway this summer.  I thank the staff for a great stay!!!!

We Will Definitely Stay There Again

Our room was very clean and had everything we needed for our stay.  The staff was very friendly and met our needs when needed.  Everyone there was always smiling and very helpful with any questions we had.  We will definitely stay there again.

Trip Advisor Review: A Beautiful Site

The residence has an outdoor common area with shaded tables - very pleasant.  The beach area, although small, is beautiful (boardwalk, palm trees, deck chairs, mangroves).  There is a nice marina.  The vicinity of the resort are in bloom.  Our guest room was very large and well equipped, bright.
