Great Place to stay and relax. Rooms are actu

I had my wedding reception at the Mutiny Hotel by the pool, and it was perfect staff was very nice and attentive. I Stayed in a two bedroom suite over looking the sailboats WHAT A VIEW. The rooms were big and spacious I love the full kitchen. The room was also clean and it was updated. My family stayed on on of the top floors and they had the same experience.

Confortable space and view!

We stayed in a suite that had 2 bed rooms, 2 bath rooms, a living room and a kitchen.
It was very comfortable, we had breakfast and sometimes dinner there. The apartment had a beautiful view to the bay of Coconut Grove. The hotel is close to the Coco Walk where there are shops, restaurants and cinemas. It was a good experience that we intend to repeat.

Super Hotel in Coconut Grove!

We travelled to the Miami area during our daughters' school break. We reserved a two-bedroom suite and our room was exactly as depicted on the hotel's website. The spacious suite was in excellent condition and the beds in both bedrooms were very comfortable. The sofabed was not very comfortable but the housekeeping staff promptly provided a mattress topper that solved that issue. Our suite had plenty of storage space, a fully equipped kitchen and a washer and dryer. The entire suite had marble or tiled floors which avoids the problems associated with hotel carpets! Housekeeping staff kept our room very clean throughout our stay.

We were very pleased with the hotel's Coconut Grove location. The hotel is within walking distance of great restaurants, movie theatres and some shopping. There is a great grocery store nearby, too. Very inexpensive public transit is easily accessible from the hotel.

Our room was not high enough to have much of a view, however, it offered the peace and quiet we were seeking. The only noise we noticed, on occasion, was from other guests moving chairs on the marble floors in the room above ours.

The quiet pool area was relatively small but kept clean and was never crowded during our stay. The hot tub was usable its jets were not working while we were there.

Although we usually do not ask for much in the way of hotel services when we travel, we were very impressed with the helpful, friendly staff at The Mutiny Hotel. They helped us to arrange an excursion to the Everglades, provided directions to the nearest grocery store and promptly called taxis when we needed them.

I would certainly stay at the Mutiny hotel again and would recommend it to others looking for more than a standard hotel room in a secure and quiet area of the city.

April 14th, 2012 stay.... Trip Advisor

My husband and I booked this vacation through our travel agent. When we checked the internet to see what this place looked like, we began to have reservations about going.  You never know what you'll find when you book on-line. We've had problems before while using Travelocity and others of the like. Well, we were SOOOO glad we decided to go anyway. This place was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! We were there for 8 days, 7 nights. We stayed in building 3404...a unit that is owned by Mr. & Mrs. Spurgeon...and what a lovely unit they have! It was clean and well stocked with all the kitchen needs for a couple vacationing. We prefer to have a full kitchen when we travel so we are not forced to eat out every day. This couple makes sure you have near everything you'd need to cook a variety of foods. My husband is a chef, and he had no problem whipping up several wonderful meals there. They have several locations that have grills and picnic tables for all to use...which we did. The pool was clean. There were plenty of lounge chairs. The hot tub was wonderful, too. The bathhouse is still being worked on, but our unit was near the pool, so i guess it didn't matter to us whether we had access to the bathhouse or not. The grounds were absolutely breath-taking. Flowers were blooming everywhere! The beach area was small, but neatly kept. They have lighted palm trees in both the beach area and the grilling area, which was a nice touch. There is a guard shack at the entrance where we were always greeted with a smile as he opened the gate for us. The entire staff was very friendly and helpful. They perform a mid-week cleaning, which we passed on...we didn't find it necessary, since we hardly spent any time on the inside, except to sleep...and escape from the blazing Florida sunshine! There is a restaurant, a little store, and a bar, on site. There is ample parking, with plently room, still, for all the boats on trailers that belong to owners/renters. From our balcony,though it was kinda small, we had a beautiful view of the ocean. Paradise...that's what this place is, and we look forward to returning there next year. Thank you, Mr. & Mrs. Spurgeon, for sharing this little piece of paradise with us.

Exceeds Expectation

Great value for the money. Close to Key Largo & Islamarada. Very relaxing. We are coming back next year for sure.


Absolutly amazing! The views, the sunsets, the bonfire, the pool were perfect. Our suite was very clean and well stocked. The whole suite had just been remodeled, Very comfortable beds and clean new linen. I enjoyed being there, They staff are tops! Thanks to Eddie, Sherize and Jerry. I cant wait to come back. eight days was definetly not long enough.


Diveheart Sponsors Diving Trip for Gold Star

Diveheart Sponsors Diving Trip for Gold Star Families and Wounded Veterans 4/24/12 Diveheart Foundation of Downers Grove, Illinois hosted a scuba diving trip to the Florida Keys for Gold Star families of fallen troops, and wounded veterans. The trip was made possible due to the generosity of Southwest Airlines which provided round-trip airline tickets as part of its 40th anniversary celebration. Sharing Our Luv with Our Communities. Participants stayed at Ocean Pointe Suites in Key Largo. Diveheart is a not-for-profit organization that provides scuba diving opportunities for children and adults with disabilities, and wounded veterans. The physical, mental and spiritual benefits of scuba are beyond measure. Last year, Diveheart started working with Gold Star families who have lost a loved one in the military. These are parents, spouses, children and siblings of our service men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice and their lives have been forever changed, said Jim Elliott, president/founder of Diveheart. Our wounded veterans are facing what may be their new normal which might include missing arms, missing legs, traumatic brain injuries, or loss of vision. The parents are starting what may be their new normal which also includes a painful loss. Its obviously not the same, but they're all facing difficult transitions resulting from immeasurable loss. Participants on the trip have spent the past six months learning how to scuba dive and preparing for the adventure. They spent the time learning from and depending on each other while growing and healing together, Elliott said. Attending the trip, were four Gold Star families from Illinois, a group of Diveheart volunteers including an active Navy corpsman, and three veterans with disabilities; two who are blind and one who is a paraplegic and in a wheelchair. What drew us together for the trip aside from our deep connection to the military is the fact that we have all endured a loss. All of our lives have changed dramatically and irreversibly and we are all seeking to live with what we call our new normal, said veteran Rick Olson who is blind. All of us have a burden to carry but you would not notice any challenge or disability after spending the week seeing, talking and listening to each other. Yes the scuba diving was some of the best that I have done, but was really special was the camaraderie between everyone including the children. We all laughed, cried, and most of all listened to each others stories. A second Gold Star trip will be planned for this fall. This has been such an amazing process, that we're really eager to share the opportunity with additional families, said Elliott. We are so grateful to Southwest Airlines for their generosity and Ocean Pointe Suites in Key Largo for their warm hospitality.

This place is beautiful. The staff was all friendly and helpful. The room was clean and spacious. The view was amazing.

"Five out of Five Stars"- A Booking Review

We had a beachfront room...that makes all the difference for stunning sunsets right from your balcony! The suite had everything you could possibly want including a washer/dryer! All the appliances were very up to date and the suite was very spacious. The pool and hot tub were great, not the mention the Tiki bar very near by! Of course the best part...the beach is right there!

“Very Very Nice”

We came down from the northern states to spend our vacation here at Sunset Vistas. Our room was not ready as we arrived very early. The ladies Brianna & Liz made us feel welcomed as soon as we waked through the doors. We were able to use the pool and beach until our room was ready. Not an hour had gone by and they called to tell us our room was ready.

“Great Vacation Place”

Checked in Saturday March 3rd, 2012 at 11 PM. Someone had parked in our place so we parked out front, no problem. (Only night this happened) Room was clean and very nice. Stayed for 7 nights. Plenty of room to share with another couple or kids. Front desk personnel were very helpful with any questions or concerns we had, great job! Property was nice and quiet, great and easy access to the very clean beach. Amazing views of the gulf!! Kitchen is adequately stocked with pots, pans, cups, plates and utensils.

“Excellent On-Ocean Hotel”

This was our second stay at the Sunset Vistas which was even better than the first. The condo-type units are comfortable, spacious and come fully equipped. Located nicely on the beach and close to John Pass where the shops, restaurants and action are located. The on-site cafe is nice and convenient.

“Great Location for a family vacation!”

We have visited Sunset Vistas several times over the years, and always look forward to coming back!

"Wonderful Stay"


The staff is great, very helpful. The cafe has good food at reasonable prices, very family friendly. Pool clean and well equipped. The path to the beach has a courtesy box of equipment to use. The suite was well equipped and furnished, including washing machine, dryer and dishwasher. No late night noise - easy walk to Johns Pass. Would certainly return.

Great stay!

Staying at hotel currently had a small issue that mellony and tyrell handled very quickly. Very nice place to stay have stayed here before and will stay again.Condos are in great safe area with a great view. The price is great. Everytime we've come back something had been new. Pablo and Edward are great at the front desk.

Great Stay

We had stayed in 2 other Hotels in Tampa on our trip, they were nothing like their advertisement stated they added extra charges for parking and resort fees. When we arrived @ Sailport We were supposed to be booked for 2 nights but do to translation issue with the Travelocity rep. He cancelled 1 of my nights. JERRY @ Sailport was wonderful! He said " lets see if we can make the rest of your trip better". He put us in a suite with a great view of the bay for the two nights, this resort is very clean and the staff helpful.

Ocean Pointe Suites- Trip Advisor

Great location. Our two bedroom suite was nicely furnished and well maintained. Even though there were a lot of families, found the resort to be quiet and peaceful. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Lots to do in the area.

My clients LOVED Sunset Vistas

I own a travel company and recently sent my clients to Sunset Vistas. I want to thank the customer service and management team for their extremely courteous and professional assistance with my requests for my clients. I work with many resorts but because of our clients wonderful stay and our experience with your staff, we are looking forward to booking many more clients at Sunset Vistas!! Thank you!!

Beautiful Comfortable Friendly- Trip Advisor

My family (wife and two boys aged 4 and 1.5) and I stayed here for five days. We were supremely impressed with the stunning beauty of the resort, the courteous staff, and the laid back nature of the place. This was our first time to the Florida Keys, and from the earlier reviews I was a little uncertain of what we were going to get. However, our minds were quickly put to ease when we pulled into the sunny parking spot surrounded by blossoming florescent flowers, the ocean only a hundred feet from our room. The desk staff was friendly, and welcoming. We stayed in Building 5 on the 3rd floor with a perfect view of the harbor. Just to give you a sense of the place. I walked over to pick up a couple blankets from the headquarters building one evening. On my way back I saw a group of kids looking over the edge of the docks. I walked up, and a manatee was nosing his way along the edge of the dock. One of the kids actually climbed down the ladder and petted the gentle giant.

Quiet, Secluded - Travelocity

Great spot to get away from the hubbub of every day life! I would recommend this to a friend!

Worked Well for Us- Orbitz

The view could not be beat. It was just what you'd expect in a Florida vacation place. Our suite was quiet and the location is good--halfway between Miami and Key West. Grocery store, pharmacy, and multiple dive shops were less than a mile away. We found incredible restaurants within a few miles of the resort. The pool was big and very clean. Every experience we had with staff was positive.

Great Place to Stay


Great Location for families w/ teens- Expedia

This was a great place to come with 2 teenagers. We needed space for everyone to have their own "personal space" after 8 days of "togetherness". It was decorated very cute and the furnishings were comfortable.The washer and dryer in the unit were very helpful. It was located right next to a nature trail through a mangrove forest down to the water and we had a good view of the sunrise over the water. The pool, tennis courts, beach, and playground were well maintained. Having a kitchen and BBQ grills saved us on eating out costs and allowed us to relax and spend more time on the beach without worrying about restaurant timing or driving. Marina on site for fishing or snorkeling charters.

Peaceful Paradise for Our Family! - Trip Adv.

What a wonderful surprise. The beach is small but clean and beautiful. There are walking paths (in the mangrove trees around the condos). I did my morning run there. The pool is clean and nice. We had an excellent dinner at the cafe. It was quiet on the property. The Ocean Pointe Suites are near many attractions such as the John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park and the Theatre By the Sea in Islamorada (both well worth the visit). I have a 14 year old and 5 year old and they both said that this was our best vacation yet.

Great for Families- Trip Advisor

With two teenage kids it was great to have two bedrooms and two bathrooms with a kitchen. I like this configuration better than two adjoining rooms. Some mornings we just had a quick bowl of cereal and a cup of coffee before the day's activities. Some evenings we picked up a Redbox DVD and ordered pizza. The unit had a coffer maker, pots and pans, dishes and silverware. It was good to be on the 4th floor for a better view and our unit had a washer and dryer. The dryer was good to have to dry off the beach towels. Coffee shop is nice, beach is better than most in the keys, good tennis court and pool. The units are not serviced every day but you can arrange for a mid stay cleaning if needed. We stayed 4 nights so it wasn't an issue.

Loved This Place! - Trip Advisor

I had the 1 bedroom suite and it was awesome!! Loved the big hot tub and pool and the man made beach was cute!! Every room has a view even if there is a bunch of mango tree between you and the ocean! Everything you need! There is 5 buildings and i really couldn't tell that one was better than the others!! We stayed in #3. There is bbq pits for grilling and a tennis court and a playground for the kids!! Very clean and very well maintained and it is gated with security !

Pictures do not do this place justice.

Such a nice quiet place to relax. Rooms were very clean and supplied with everything you need, except for napkins or paper towels,lol. Edward was very helpful and we loved our stay!

“Excellant Place to Stay!!!!”

This was our second time staying here. We stayed in the 2 bedroom suite w/partcial view and it was a perfect view of the beach. It was very clean, spacious, and the staff was excellant! It also has a wonderful cafe and tiki bar which we enjoyed drinks next to the pool at sunset and the bartender (Erin) was phenominal! It's also a great place/town to stay with family.

We stayed out on our patio (as the weather was so beautiful) and just watched the beautiful beach and skies right out of our own room.

“Very Friendly & Helpful !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

We took a 2 night break from our timeshare in Orlando and stayed at Sunset Vistas. We stayed there during Spring Break so the rooms were high priced, but very nice. We stayed in a 2 bedroom Gulf View unit. The 2 bedrooms were small, but nice. The Kitchen was very large as was the Dining area. Living room was small. Both bathrooms were OK sized. When we arrived our room was not ready, but they said they would call me when it was ready. I got a call very soon afterward. When we returned to check in I found out that I had left my credit card at Planet Hollywood in Orlando the night before. The girls at the front desk called Planet Hollywood for me and got me connected with the credit card company to cancel my account. They also said that I could have a new card shipped to the resort front desk and they would call me when it got there. It arrived the next day and they left a message on my cell phone and the room phone to let me know that the card had arrived.

“Excellent Vacation!!”

We stayed at Sunset Vistas from March 17-24. It was an excellent experience. This is our 4th trip to Sunset Vistas and we will for sure come back again to enjoy all that Treasure Island has to offer. Very close walk to John's Pass. Lots of shopping and places to eat. The Middle Grounds Grill is fantastic. The rooms at Sunset Vistas are very spacious. I like that there is a separate patio door entrance from the master bedroom to the balcony. The sunsets are fantastic and can be viewed right from your balcony. Kitchen is very large and equipped with everything you will need. I noticed an earlier comment regarding the fire drill testing that took place. We were there during that time and certainly had proper notice that the testing would be taking place. I felt that notices were posted well in advance.

“Awesome Beach”

The beach was awesome and only steps from our room. The staff were friendly and parking was very well organized.

“Spring Training + Beach Get-A-Way”

We came toFloridato see Spring Training baseball but our stay at Sunset Vistas Beachfront Suites (Treasure Island) was the highlight of the trip. The beach was beautiful, the pool clean and the staff friendly. Our 2-bedroom suite had a wonderful view of the ocean and was good size for 2 couples. The location is a short walk JohnsPass Village(shopping, restaurants, entertainment, etc.). Several other restaurants were also within walking distance. Had a great time at the beach and the baseball was pretty fun too! Will be back next year!!

“Clean, Comfortable Beach Front Suites”- A TripAdvisor Review

We enjoyed our recent stay in our two bedroom suite with balcony overlooking the beach. Everything was clean and updated. Bathrooms and kitchen were fully stocked and they change towels every two days, more if you ask. The staff is extremely kind and helpful.
