comfort of bed, size of rooms, nice screened porch, location with easy access to beach, quiet neighborhood, easy walk to good cafe.
We liked the location and the accomodations. The unit was very comfortable and was clean. For a building built in the 60's it was well refurbished and didn't leave you feeling like you were in an old resort building. We found the staff very pleasant and helpful and cheerful. We liked the easy beach access and being off the beaten path.
We were disappointed with the TV in the bedroom. It is only a 22" and is too small for comfortable viewing from the bed. There is plenty of room for a larger screen. We actually unplugged the 32" from the living room and moved it to the bedroom during our stay. Yes, we put it back before checkout. It may sound funny, but I did not like the toilet. While it is elongated, which is nice, it is very low. But, neither of these were considered of major concern and did not take from our enjoyment of the Thanksgiving holiday retreat.
great bed nicely finished great internet speed low traffic area/quiet area very nice beach very short walk from front door nice little pool
out of service laundry $6 toll to get on island limited grocery options on island
Perfect location and beautiful apartment
The appartment is really nicely decorated and roomy. Easy and short access to the beach.
The weather, everything else was wonderful.
Location and the unit was fairly modern.
Would have preferred a king size bed instead of two full sizes.
Location, Newly updated room
Would like to have stayed longer
Location Clean well equipped great value
bed was hard, and the bedding was old worn and kept coming off of the bed.
The beach themed room was an experience in it's self! From the paintings of local eating establishments, local history literature and even a list of local AA meetings which I am a member!. The room made us feel at home and then some! The kitchen was fully equipped, loved the he and she TV's and the huge storage and closet space. I was even collecting shells!
Penny and Manny were EXCELLENT!! The unit we stayed in was very nicely decorated and comfortable. We'll be back!
Great location, very convenient, everything a couple needs for a little quiet get away.
A little better water view would have been good but for the value, it was fine. A very short walk to the beach front.
C6 apt was so comfortable with screened in patio. everything was there to cook a meal or just use the micro wave. Wonderful upgrades including the shower and kitchen counters. Even a touch of the old world with a pocket door to separate living room from rest of the apt! Pristine white sand beach with friendly people. Forget Key West this is our new favorite place to really relax and C6 was way above our expectations.
Would have been nice to have two beach chairs to take to the beach instead of one chaise lounge.
We loved the beach and the quietness of the area. It was also nice to have the resturant variaties--from LIghthouse all the way to Doc Fords. Did not have time to bike ride but will look forward to another trip soon to incorporate that.
Would stay again just for the location.
Our room could do with a face lift.
The location of Colony Resort was excellent. It was a very short walk to the beach, a store and the lighthouse. Bicycles were available on site. There was a screened balcony. Also a laundry room is available on each floor.
We did not get the unit we had booked. The living room furniture in Unit C47 was uncomfortable and the dining room chairs were precarious stools at a bar height round table. There was a picnic table on the screen balcony. Some units had beach chairs available. This one did not. It had beach coolers instead
Clean and well equiped
The staff was fairly friendly.
The beach access was supposed to be private but it was public. There were live and dead worms on the floor. Some had been there long enough to stain the floor. The pool was very small. The rooms weren't very sound proof. The lights outside blared in the bedroom window at night. The layout was all wrong. The tv was tiny. The dishes were out dated and unclean. The closet floor was filthy. When I moved the hamper the floor under it was the only white spot.
Room was very spacious Kitchen Close to the beach Grounds were well maintained
We couldn't use our back door access to beach due to maintenence.
This place was wonderful. Cozy little apartment with great location. Just a walk down the beach. We all really enjoyed staying here. L
very nice and quiet place, close to the beach
the toaster didn't work
I loved the fact that you can either just relax or go out and experience the fine food or many happy hour places.
The place ,all are comfortable and the employee are very nice.
I took my daughter and youngest son to celebrate his 14th birthday. We stayed at the Colony Resort since it has such an amazing rate and the reviews were so positive. We had the best time of our lives hunting for seashells and seeing the different species of marine "critters" in their natural habitat. We loved the fact that we were at walking distance to the beach (more time for shelling!) and that our unit was soooo comfortable; a home from home feel. My son asked if we could return next year to the Colony Resorts to celebrate his birthday. But I think we will be back a lot sooner than that....
our visit was way too short...
