I reserved 2-bdrm oceanfront cottage for Feb., 2022 - I cannot get an answer if there is a bathtub and full-sized refrigerator in this cottage. We'll be traveling with toddler and adult w/dietary needs. I've tried calling numerous times with no return calls. I emailed using the website's "Contact Us" with no reply yet either. This stay will cost almost $10,000 and I would expect to be able to get my simple quesions answered. Hoping to hear in this venue since I've seen replies to reviewes from the PostCard Inn here.

The facility is in a perfect location. Services a little lacking. No room service. No beach wait staff. Maybe because of Covid. Who knows. A little tired of paying higher prices and getting less. EVERYWHERE

When I first got there the view was amazing! Palm trees, sand, pool and beach with a bar. What more can you ask for. Upon arrival for our anniversary we did get champagne. We knew that this was just the beginning of a wonderful trip. The resort has rooms in the 100s- 500s. The 100-200s rooms are closer to the pool and on the weekends there is a live band playing. I personally did not see and was not able to find elevators in any of the buildings. So if you’re older or have a bad knees or back, consider that when booking this resort. Or ask for a first floor room which I think will cost a little more. This resort is also pet friendly. I did see a dog with his owner so that we pretty nice. No idea how much the cost was to have a pet here. The ac was also not central air but a unit in the room so will blow air from one side of the room to the other. Keep in mind the person sleeping closest to the ac unit will be colder. The resort came with kayaking and paddle boarding included in the price. They also give u card to get towels. Everything that’s checked out like towels, kayak and paddle board needs to be returned by 5pm. The resort was clean but housekeeping did not come in daily to clean the rooms due to this covid situation. Here’s my problem with that: the fitted sheet would not stay put. We keep having to put it back in over the mattress every single night. Also we had an issue in our room. The shower cover as knob was coming off of the wall. We notified them about the shower cover knob situation the next day and they did fixed it while we were enjoying the amenities during the day. However, since the repair person came into our room and stepped on our bath mat, I know for a fact that they did not clean our room after that ( we can see their foot print on our bath mat). Overall it was an enjoyable place. But there was no beach that house can go into and swim in. That guess that’s why they have 2 pools. We also got a car so that we can drive to the keys. And they gave u a parking permit for your dashboard.

We have been to Islamorada many times, we chose the Postcard Inn this trip because I ran the half marathon, and the start/finish line was there. My husband & kids could watch without having to drive/park. It also looks so nice and fun on social media!! What a mistake!! There were SO many issues. We actually left after 2 of the 7 nights we booked and went elsewhere. (We only stayed the 2nd night because of the race). Our issues: safety!: our room door was not secure, if you pushed it from the outside it would open! The upper lock that flips over for nighttime was missing (only half was there!). The a/c was broken- if it wasn’t on high, it didn’t work. Our bathroom was dirty- like there was water damage previously that hadn’t been properly taken care of. Only 4 very small drawers in the dresser (I always unpack if I’m staying that long). There was only 1 washer/dryer that was located at a sister resort, 4 miles away. I spent 3 hours of my vacation to do 1 load! (We were in the middle of a 2 week vacation). Machines took quarters, No change machine, was told by the front desk at Amara Cay to go to the gas station to get change! The beach area is nice, but the floating mats are covered in bird poop. And there is no water trampoline like in all the pictures. The Big pool was closed on our 2nd day- The quiet pool was dirty, needed to be drained &scrubbed. My kids wouldn’t even get in it. Ripped cushions on the chairs, iguana poop all over the deck! If you eat on site- Service at the tiki bar restaurant was not great- hostess with the red hair was rude- we were clearly a bother when asking if we could eat there. Ciao Hound was way over priced and there were little flies swarming us outside- def do not sit outside there!! (The staff said it was because we are by the ocean and they can’t do anything about it, I have never experienced that anywhere else in the keys!). a few citronella candles would have worked wonders. I told the front desk about all of this on our 2nd day, cancelled our reservation for the remainder of our trip, and the only thing they offered me was to refund my resort fee. They didn’t offer to fix anything about the room, including the lock so we put a bunch of stuff in front of the door while we slept that night and left the next day. I did complete the feedback survey I was emailed and not one person reached out to even say they got it and thanks or that they would address my concerns for future guests. Not only do I not recommend this place, I tell my friends to avoid it.
