“best view, perfect little home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2011

We truly enjoyed our visit to Indigo Bay. The beds were comfy, with two bathrooms helped with morning duties. Loved the washer/dryer in the condo and the many tvs with cable hookup and internet. The kitchen helped us save money by cooking there with all their immenities; full size fridge, stove, dishwasher, dishes, utensils, etc. ANd having our own pool and ability to fish right there was great! You get the idea. Perfect location. I would definetly stay again. The staff was helpful when we needed stuff also. Thanks Indigo Bay. Islamorada's best kept secret, well maybe not any more.
We visited Theater of the Sea, A1A watersports for their boat and jet skis and the Islander for dinner.

The property is brand new and very nice. It is like staying in a condo but in a hotel setting. Townhouses have two bedrooms with very comfortable king size beds, flat screen TVs in bedrooms and sitting area. Full kitchen and very beautifully decorated. On site marina to keep your boat and is very peaceful and convenient. No expense was spared in it's development. It was recently purchased by the Islander and their website has not been updated to reflect this property. We absolutely plan on staying there again on our next trip to the Keys. The downside is that their wireless internet is intermittent but hopefully the Islander will correct this issue. Also make sure that you get good directions when launching your boat so you don't end up on a flat.

We are 2 couples who stayed there March 10-17. It seems that the hotel was in the process of changing owners (management) and I hope the change is towards good. I am saying that due to some bad experiences.
I have to say that the facility has potential but the lack of attention to detail and very rude staff could leave you with a bad taste in your mouth.
PROs:
Nice overall amenities, pillow tops king size beds and flat screen tv are a nice touch
Nice pool location
Good overall value

CONs:
Insufficient dishes and cutlery (just for 2 people, when the accomodation is for 4 at least??). We eventually got some but we had to ask (and this should have been checked before our check in)

No Internet connection inside(maybe due to the fact that the building is built for hurricanes??). The only place we had connection was on the porch, which during the day was imposible to see anything on the screen due to the glare.

In our 3rd day there our dishwasher broke, happend to be on a Saturday. We let know reception who informed us that nothing could be done untill Monday. Needless to say that nothing was done. When approached on Monday evening, the reception young lady was very upset that i dared approached her at 21.45 (she was supposed to be there till 22.oo) as she was just leaving???(maybe management should look into this?). Anyway, she informed us that we will have to wait until next day. The next day it was checked and not fixes, so we had to do dishes using paper towels for the rest of our stay there (NOT EXACTLY MY DEFINITION OF RELAXING WHEN WE HAD A DISHWASHER). No apologies (or discounts for that matter!!) have been offered.

The whole place was not properly cleaned up before our check in which is too bad as the amenities are good.

The hotel could also set up a BBQ area which would be a nice touch.

If you are in one in the cheaper units (like us), keep in mind that they are very close the the very busy only road to Key West(if you are light sleeper you are out of luck).

These are the main pros and cons in my oppinon, so draw your own conclusions

My mom and I stayed at Indigo Bay hotel for four nights in February and couldn't be more impressed. The brand new two story town homes have upscale fixtures and are decorated with modern designer tropical style. Every room has a great view of the bay and pool off their balconies and the owners/staff are great. The hotel is very peaceful and quiet - great for relaxing. The location is also good; there are many very good restaurants close by. I could have stayed at Indigo Bay for months and would definitely stay there again if I were to return to the Keys.

This place is brand new - condo-style with two bedrooms - fit our family of 5 (three young ones) comfortably and made for a relaxing vacation - open kitchen / family room set up - family room - quick drive from Miami - two hours to Key West. It's situated on a very calm bay / inlet with limited traffic - has a great / protected marina - the pool is waterfront - we enjoyed our stay - very comfortable accommodations - the property is clean and well cared for - not a full service resort - recommend for a boat owner or renter interested in make day excursions or family looking for space and peace
