Thank you for taking the time to post your review. Lobster Fest is definitely one of the best times in Key West... the lobster is fresh and plentiful ~ the waters are usually flat calm and crystal clear! Its the perfect time to enjoy the ocean breezes when the mainland is sweltering with in the August heat. Lobster Fest is...

I have been staying at the Banyan for a number of years and have always been pleased. If you're looking for a modern hotel setting, the Banyan isn't for you as the property consists of old antique Key West homes which have been converted into comfortable efficiency style units. Its location on Whitehead St is within walking distance of anything...

This was our third time at the Banyan, first with kids. Although families with kids are clearly not the Banyan's target visitors, it was pleasant enough. Our visit was unusally chilly but the kids enjoyed the family pool and outdoor tiki bar. We were in a 2 bedroom that was unfortunately on the corner of Whitehead and Eaton and very...

My friend and I recently spent a week at the Banyan Resort. I have to say it was by far the best vacation ever in Key West!!! We arrived approximately 3 hours earlier than check-in time and our room was ready and the service from that moment on was exceptional. The grounds are very well kept and are simply beautiful!!!...

A recent family wedding in Key West brought us to the Banyan Resort. We chose it for its location near the Audubon House and Gardens, where the ceremony and reception took place. Family members who stayed elsewhere came to breakfast in "our" garden near the pool. The furnishings are tasteful and the mood very low key and soothing. We enjoyed...
