Hotels in Key Largo
You’ll find most the hotels in Key Largo along (or at least pretty close to) Highway 1, the road that leads from the mainland. You’ll find a wide range of both brand name and independent hotels, as well as B&Bs and even houseboats for rent. The colorful rooms at Dove Creek Lodge, a plantation-style Key Largo hotel, come with private porches or balconies. Located near the water, this is a great spot for anglers, too. The Kona Kai Resort, Gallery & Botanic Gardens is a Key Largo hotel for adults. It offers a tropical environment, with coconut palms, bougainvillea and a botanical garden of rare species. Rooms are one and two-bedroom suites, and the resort has its own art gallery.
Whether you’re looking for an amorous hideaway or a great place to see moray eels, Amy Slate's Amoray Dive Resort is an ideal Key Largo hotel. Its PADI–certified dive facility delivers nicely, with both romantic cottages and easy access to diving gear and lessons.
