Like visiting family (with a beautiful seaside place)
This year we decided to visit the Florida Keys during Christmas week. We zeroed on on Key Largo to minimize drive time from MIA. We prefer Mon and Pop type accommadations, privately owned and managed onsite. The Rock Reef Resort (MM99) sounded perfect and it was.
Rock Reef Resort provided a wonderful, kicked back, quiet stay. Our room (#21) was furthest back from the water but delightful none the less. The grounds are covered with mature excellent tropical landscaping plus a collection on fantastic Bonsai by the owners. There is a small beach ideal for pail and shovel play and a dock with Tiki hut where we began and each day with coffee and reading and watched the glorious sunset each night. A tiny kitchenette was super handy for coffee in the am and fruit drinks in the pm. There are a lot of superior seafood restautants near by; Ballyhoo's, The Fish House, The Fish House Encore, as well an John Pennekamp State Park and a Starbucks.
We felt fortunate to have gotten a reservation since almost all the rooms were filled with returning visitors, most for 10 or more Christmases.
We looked around at other spots in Key Largo and feel we lucked out finding RRR, reasonably priced, spic and span clean, slightly old school, and wonderful hosts, like at a nice B&B.
I'm giving Rock reef Resort my highest rating as it suited our tastes perfectly. Getting all 80 degree days helped a lot also.
