If you are looking for a luxury houseboat experience, look elsewhere. If you are looking for an authentic Florida Keys experience, look no further than the Boatel. I took a private room on the barge, as no private boats were available. The room was clean and the amenities were all perfectly adequate. There's even a kitchenette!Because it's on a barge,...

Great time. First time here in the Keys. Kids loved seeing the Manatee come up to our boat. Hubby liked the private beach. I liked being rocked to sleep on the houseboat.!!! Under new management we were told: Thanks for a great vacation and great accommodation. Will be back.

I thought this place would be an amazing experience for my family -- it was a surprise trip & for my Mother's birthday. When we arrived an officer was on the location & warned us to stay away from a guy who clearly was drunk & on something. The drunk was vulgar, obnoxious & was told to stay away but...

This is literally THE WORST customer service I have EVER experienced! Tried to call on the phone to have some basic questions answered and was told to call a different person for questions and was hung up on when I asked for the number. I tried to call back and was forwarded to voicemail They do not value their guests...

I never write reviews but if I can save anyone the experience of just visiting this place let alone staying here I would feel great. Run, don't walk from this place. The fact they are legally able to rent these places out is astonishing. When I arrived at 330 I was told by the one and only employee, Marie, she...

In June 2015 while I was looking for a neat place for me and my husband to stay while we were in the Keys, I came across the Boatel in Key Largo. I was very torn between the awesome price and some of the terrible reviews... many people posted pictures and videos of the boat they stayed on and honestly,...

I booked online with a $200 deposit and thought it can't be that bad. It is and worse. This place should be condemned. The house boat I stayed on had a horrible stench and was very dirty. There were termites and cockroaches everywhere. The bed had blood on it and everything was horribly dirty. I left with out a refund....

Excellent stay, this is not our first time here and we'll keep coming back. Very convenient for John Pennykamp Park and dog friendly, very good place to visit with other friends renting other houseboats too for exciting vacations for water loving, adventures with friends and family. Very Friendly and Old Florida.
