We stayed at the Moorings in May for three nights as part of our honeymoon. The location is stunning and secluded, and the perfect place to relax. We stayed in Sifca lodge which does not have a direct ocean view, but is literally a stone's throw from the beach and amongst super lush greenery. It also has a beautiful front porch which we used for coffee in the morning and cocktail hour...very relaxing! The lodges come fully equipped with kitchen items and laundry items so you can really make yourself at home. After all the eating out during our wedding weekend, it was really nice to be able to cook a few meals in. We also enjoyed AMAZING massages on the beach with the on-site spa services. They are VERY expensive but it was the best massage my husband and I ever had so it's worth a splurge. Definitely get it on the beach - it's so quiet and peaceful! The only potential negatives I will mention is that there is no bar/restaurant service on site. We didn't mind this, as we loved having the ability to cook in our kitchen, but just want to mention for others. Great restaurants are literally a short walk away (we loved Chef Michael's + Pierre's) and there is a small grocery store that we drove to but you could easily walk. The other thing that was slightly disappointing is that they didn't do anything for us to commemorate our honeymoon (and they were aware). For the prices you're paying, you would expect even a small token. It doesn't need to even be an item, but for example, they booked two dinner reservations for us and it could've been a nice touch to mention to the restaurant that it was our honeymoon so then the restaurant might have said congrats, etc. It's the smallest gesture, but those things mean so much! Overall we loved The Moorings and are very happy we stayed there!

Many years ago my father owned the Moorings-- as a retirement business--at the time it was just a five cottages resort. Now it has about 25 cottages with beautiful beach and palm trees galore. Many good restaurants on Islamorada. You should definitely take a day trip to Key West. Make sure and see Hemingway's house If you like the tropics, you love The Moorings.

Loved the Moorings - fantastic little house, steps from the beach, beautiful pool and grounds. The beach was quiet, with lots of coconut trees for shade. On the down side, there's no room service or even food on property - they have an affiliated restaurant across the street. But the house we had was clean & comfortable, with a full kitchen, the staff was attentive to every question and need and we had a great getaway.

I stayed for several days with my husband and baby in the Parker house. For what this Resort is, it is pretty magical. The grounds are lovely, the house was very nice, the beach is picturesque, and it is very, very quiet and private. It LOOKS like a five star hotel (And costs like one!) but it isn't exactly a five star hotel. What is being offered here is privacy—or more precisely, low density—at the expense of a large staff and the usual hotel amenities. A key component of every 5-star hotel I've ever stayed in is that there's staff for everything—to bring you to your room, to bring you drinks at the pool, to assist you beachside, etc, for a restaurant, spa, room service, etc. At a five-star hotel, the staff members are all trained to be the pinnacle of grace. They have something called the "five-ten rule," which means they acknowledge you with their eyes at ten feet and address you graciously at five feet, to ask you how they can help you. I bring this up to demonstrate I know what I'm saying when I say something is just a little different about The Moorings. You pay for a five-star experience, and in terms of the grounds, the accommodations and the beach, yes, it is five stars. But if you want a drink while at the beach, there's no one to bring you one. If you'd like a room service breakfast, there is none, nor is there even an on-site restaurant. Maid service is available, but only if you request it 24 hours in advance. And most jarring of all, when we were out walking the grounds, the staff members we did see were more interested in ensuring that we were not trespassers than in ensuring we were having a nice time. Twice in two days, we were asked if we were guests. I guess they get a lot of people wandering into the grounds who aren't guests, but there are more polite ways to ask than "Are you guests here? Which room?" In short, this beautiful place has a front desk, a grounds crew, and some security guards, and nothing more. It sounds like a small thing, but I really missed having that welcoming attitude of a true five-star hotel, where there are people to attend to everything and who treat me like I'm royalty no matter what I'm wearing, and I definitely wished I could've gotten a drink while beachside. From what I have gleaned from the hotel's responses to similar critiques here on TripAdvisor, The Moorings aims to be completely unintrusive in your stay, and to give you as much privacy as possible. There are only 18 units here, so it feels like there's almost no other guests around. On the first day, it felt almost eerie, because we had seen no one else around. The hotel doesn't even send housekeeping unless you request it, so there is no knocking at your door or any intrusion into your space. The fact that it's so low density here is key: with that five-star price tag, you are not actually paying for all the staff and accoutrements of a five-star hotel. You are paying a premium for privacy. The hotel couldn't run with this few units if they charged a regular rate. So, come. Bring a dozen eggs, bagels, cream cheese, half and half and some Oj, for easy breakfasts. Bring rum, coke and a lime and mix your own drink for the beach. (Which, btw, is not super swimmable, but is really gorgeous and you're gonna have a nice stretch of it all to yourself.) Get delivery from Bayside Gourmet or Mexican Morada, and pretend it's room service. Oh, and the hotel will stock your fridge ahead of time, which is totally worth it, so you don't waste your Keys time at the grocery. Finally, do bring some bug spray. The mosquitoes aren't too bad, but there are no screens on the windows and doors, and it's too lovely not to keep them open. The lush grounds inevitably invite mosquitoes. Roll with it.

We came here just to make some pictures, after our journy true the keys, like Marathon and Key West, of the tv show bloodline. The girl from the front desk was very friendly to let us park our car and walk to the beach to take some pictures. Beautiful beach and landscaping and we hope we can stay here a few nights when we come back, because it looked gorgeous
