What Our Guests Are Saying:

A Gem in Key Largo

“My husband and I visited Kona Kai while Key hopping for our 25th wedding anniversary in May. The resort is quiet and tranquil. The garden is beautiful and the beach is private. Grab a book and read in the hammock on the beach. Rooms are like small apartments with a living area and full kitchen.”

Perfect Private Getaway

“This place is gorgeous! Private getaway with a secluded beach equipped with kayaks at free use. While kayaking, dolphins swam alongside us at their leisure almost close enough to touch. The resort even had a beautiful botanical garden greenhouse as well as plant life throughout the resort.”

Austin B. | TripAdvisor

Tropical Paradise

“This resort is immaculate, tropical and well-run. The staff was professional and willing to do anything to make my stay comfortable. I felt like this was “old Florida “ at its finest. The sunsets were priceless, there are dozens of restaurants nearby, the best review I can give is to say I’ll be back, in fact, I’ve already made a reservation for next year.”
