14 Best Resorts and Hotels in the Florida Keys

Drive south from Miami and you’ll discover an intriguing collection of islands strung together like a shell necklace. Each Florida Key has its own personality, so whether you lean more rugged, refined, or raucous, there is one to match your mood. 

First up, Key Largo: Sure, it’s littered with kitsch, but don’t let that dissuade you. Turn off the main highway and you’ll find some terrific spots for relaxing by, in, and under the water. Or cruise down to more sophisticated Islamorada, where fine dining and purple-hued sunsets compete for your attention, along with a host of resorts. Further south, Duck Key beckons families with its summer-camp vibe. Then, keep heading all the way south to Key West to discover legendary characters, a fierce independent streak, and festive fun. Just like the islands themselves, you’ll discover a variety of hotels and resorts along the way, from sprawling and intimate to laidback and luxurious; it’s all here in America’s Caribbean. Here, the best places to stay in the Florida Keys.
