“weekend in relaxation”
Reviewed 12 March 2012

We spent one night at La Jolla. It was a great experience for us. Who took a day off without the children and escaped to Islamorada.
This is a great old fashion hotel with nice rooms with sofa, stove, fridge and a big bed.
We wanted to stay longer but the kids were back on Saturday night therefore paradise was kinda cut short. No complaints other than the water front has no beach but that is usual in Islamorada. The staff is very courteous and helpful. rooms are very clean and the atmosphere is relaxing

Room Tip: Room M is great.

We just returned from our trip to the Keys and we decided to stay in Islamorada after previous trips to Key West. La Jolla was perfect! I'm the person who reads every review on Trip Advisor and researches (and over-researches) so I appreciate the information that other travelers share. La Jolla was very relaxed, very clean (I mean it) and the entire staff is friendly and welcoming. We stayed in Unit B, which looked directly out to the bay and it was beautiful. We used the full kitchen and the beach grill for a lot of our meals, but there are also plenty of restaurants and bars close to La Jolla. We walked to a lot of shopping too. We completely enjoyed the small pool--we were the only ones using it most of the days, even though the resort seemed to be booked! The landscaping is cute, the buildings are nicely painted and our unit was tastefully decorated. Hopefully our photos will convince you--I just hope they aren't completely booked the next time we go to the Keys!

Room Tip: We enjoyed room "B" which directly faced the water. However, once the room above ours was...

My stay at La Jolla was one of the best accommodation experiences I've ever had. I don't know if it was the great views, the wonderful staff, or the perfect location that makes me want to go back so quick. The staff is by far the best staff I've ever encountered at a hospitality establishment. They are genuinely happy people and care about your stay at La Jolla. The resort lets you use kayaks and bikes for free everyday. Every time we went to rent their equipment the staff greeted us and knew us by name. The view is perfect, it is on the bay side and has beautiful skys at sunset. Not to mention boat slips and a dock for all you boaters out there. My favorite thing was the fact that we could ride our bike everywhere! We La Jolla's bikes and even kayaked to some of the best restaurants on the island. I can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: All the rooms have been updated since 2010 I think, and are all very different. Each has different d...

What a wonderful place to stay! The service was amazing!! The people were so friendly! It is a great location also because you can walk to restaurants and night life! Which is a big plus! Or take a bike they provide! Everything was very clean! I can't even say how much we enjoyed ourselves!!

Traveled to the keys Jan 28-Feb6. Plans changed at the last minute but it worked out well. We didn't have reservations for sat or sun. Saw the vacancy sign on the La Jolla and pulled it. very friendly staff, room was great and sitting at the tiki bar/beach was sooo relaxing. We liked it so well, we booked it for sundaynight as well. Laid Back staff and treated you like you were family. Trying to talk the hubby in to going back in the fall! (or just moving to Islamorada!!)

Room Tip: We stay above the lobby, try to book by the water, nothing beats fresh air off the water in the morn...
