“5 star guesthouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2012

Thank you to all the team for making our stay at Alexander's so memorable.

On arrival the team just make you feel part of the gang so quickly and once you've experienced your first cocktail hour at Alexander's you can't wait for the next.

Found everyone staying there so friendly and we met up later in the bars downtown and had an amazing few nights out in Key West.

When we arrived we were booked into room 12. It's on the ground floor to the side and just felt a little dark. The bedroom itself is the usual high design standard of all the bedrooms. We were quickly moved to another room upstairs which was more private and had more light - then settled in with a drink by the pool.

Breakfast is positioned in the kitchen and it does look and taste really good. It's an informal affair with people sitting by the pool casually eating the buffet style breakfast and drinking lots of great coffee and juices. Love the muffins. Thanks for wifi, papers and books which are available to use/read.

Just love this place. Favourite guesthouse we stayed in during our trip. It will take a lot to beat the hospitality at Alexander's.

Room Tip: Make sure you go to cocktail hour

We, my partner and I, stayed at Alexanders this past March for a week, and wish we could have stayed...not another week, but stayed! This was our fifth trip to Key West, and our fifth Guesthouse. We will never stay anywhere else on the island. The staff (now considered our friends...Laura, Charlie, Agnes, Jeff, Aimee and Raul) really enjoy what they do, and did everything possible to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The facilities are excellent...clean, quaint rooms, beautiful grounds, relaxing pool. Really enjoyed making new friends at the daily happy hour by the pool...not a party but a casual, relaxing, social event. And Charlie's cooking...excellent! We have already booked out stay for next year and will definately recommend Alexanders to all of our friends.

My partner and I just spent our second vacation at Alexander's and we have booked again for the same time next year. We are celebrating 32 years together and are looking foward to spending our 33rd here next March. The service is outstanding and the place is impeccable.
There is nothing a guest could want. Laura, Jeff, Charles ,Amy, and Agnes will do anything for you to make your visit a great experience. Happy hour is always fun and you get to meet all the great guests and laugh with the bartenders. Can't wait to get back. We highly recommend Alexanders for an outstanding vacation.
Rick and Bill

Room Tip: We suggest rooms on the second floor facing the pool.

For my first trip to Key West, I researched on-line a lot of places to stay - and Alexander's always came out at the top. My researched paid off... Alexander's is a comfortable, classy, relaxed guesthouse which has a real Key West feel. The pool area is the best feature. I took a midnight swim every night - under the stars. The pool and deck/patio are clean and well appointed. I stayed in two different rooms while at the guesthouse - both rooms were comfortable and Key West contemporary stylish. (The front porch is right out of a magazine.)
Alexander's is close enough to the nightlife and restaurants but far enough to be quiet. The staff was very friendly. The continental breakfast was presented well. There is a happy hour with wine, etc. One guest told me on my first night that the "Happy Hour" is what every one does. I am more private and opted not to do the Happy Hour - which I felt comfortable doing.
I walked by many other guesthouses and from the outsides of those place, Alexander's would be my choice again. Alexander's is not inexpensive but the old adage - you get what you pay for.

Room Tip: Select a room on the second level of any of the buildings.

Because of Alexanders place, I will return to key west. I will never again stay somewhere other than this guesthouse. Rates are affordable. Rooms are extremely clean and very attractive. Grounds are beautiful. Met some great friends while staying. Above all, the staff consists of people who enjoy their job. They are warm and welcoming and make each guest feel as though they have been awaiting your arrival all year. I would recommend a stay here to anyone!
