My son and I are both certified divers, but because of some bad weather on last Summer's vacation, we hadn't been diving for a year and a half. Looe Key insisted that we do a refresher course, at a pretty steep cost, and then, when we arrived for the refresher, they insisted that we go to an urgent care and...

Thanks for diving with us and we're glad you enjoyed the reef. Unfortunately, since your last dives were more than 2 years prior, a refresher course was required. A self-completed medical questionnaire is then required to take any course. And, since you had "YES" answers on the medical questionnaire, it required a physician's approval. All of this is to help...

I've dived here before and was taking my family to snorkel. The big dive boat is out so we all just snorkeled. The other smaller boat took the divers. Captain Jim and KURT were knowledgable about the marine life and the reef. The weather was crappy so we were getting hit with some 5' swells. It really was the worst...

This our 3rd snorkel trip with James Katie on Friday, May 27. We love this trip so much! We saw turtles on the way out and back, and Captain James made sure we got to see them. We saw our buddy again, the 650lb Goliath grouper, several huge spotted rays, and we followed a reef shark. This was the best...

Dated but decent motel room just off the highway. Beds were comfortable. Good AC and hot water. Smooth check-in, check-out. We really only stayed to sleep the night before heading out on snorkeling trip. It did the job for family of four. Would stay again if diving at the affiliate dive shop.

We had 2 rooms. Both needed extensive repairs!! The price for the rooms are wayyyy too expensive for what you get. The door's were rusted, the walls were peeling, the towels were stained! Many light fixtures missing and dressers broken. The tiki bar was great, and, snorkeling right on premises was Spectacular!!!

We stayed here for 2 nights. The room was decent size. The beds and linens were clean. It was not an aesthetically pleasing room with a desparate need for fresh paint and updating. We had no problems there, everyone we encountered were pleasant and helpful. We probably will choose a different place to stay next time. The dive shop and...

Great trip with kids ages 15, 12,10. Boat captain and other employees are exceptional. Very informative, happy to help, and never annoyed by too many questions, there are extra floatations for swimmers who may need a tad of extra support or confidence. We truly felt as if we were swimming in the most beautiful aquarium. Had the chance to see...

Just spent 1 night here. 2 queen beds were comfortable. After an 8 hour motorcycle ride in the June heat, a swim in the pool was just what I needed. The room was basic and clean. Tile floors, nice shower and the room was quiet. We got back from Key West about 11:30 and the band was done and we...

Great experience! Stayed here to do the Adolphus Busch wreck trip and booked an overnight stay as an afterthought. The hotel, dive center, and tiki bar were all excellent. It's rare enough to get an all-in-one location like this, but it was the staff that really made this one of the best stops on my trip to the keys. My...

When I booked a 2 bedroom suite at the Looe Key Reef Resort I didn't have high expectations other than standard cleanliness. Cosmetics don't bother me in a place like this but when I arrived, the room was disgusting. Big dead and alive bugs, garbage tucked in the bed and on the floor, and here's what did me in...body hair....
