THE BEST PLACE TO STAY IN KEY WEST: THE GROUNDS AT THE SOUTHERN MOST BEACH RESORT
The resort boosts two white sand beaches, three pools ( one adult only one which I definitely would have hit up if I wasn’t travelling with Chloe) and several places to grab one of their infamous Frozen Pina Coladas! You truly feel like you are in the Caribbean or at an oasis far away from normal day life. With little hammock nooks sprawled all over to colourful Muskoka chairs perfect for watching the sunset, there is no shortage of places to let loose.
There is also a spa and fitness centre on site making it easy to not leave the resort at all! I worked out one morning and was impressed with the variety of equipment that they had. I also did a beachfront Yoga class another morning where the instructor actually had to tap me to let me know class was done. Shavasana while listening to the ocean is pure bliss let me tell you!

THE ROOMS AT THE SOUTHERNMOST BEACH RESORT
With over 260 rooms to choose from, there is a room type to fit everyone’s needs. We stayed in a partial ocean view room with two queen beds and a balcony. It felt like our own apartment. I have stayed at a few rooms at neighbouring hotels and can honestly say this is the best rooms in Key West.
The bathroom was extremely spacious with a walk in shower, double sink vanity and a separate room for the toilet. I never once felt crammed in there and it is easy sometimes to feel like you are tight on space with a baby in tow. The hotel also made sure we had a pack and play which Chloe loved! The rooms are decorated in a crisp black and white with coral blue accents. Each room also comes with a Nespresso maker, iPod dock and complimentary water each day. Yes please!
