Hotel's Favourite
Like most other people, my husband and I have been hesitant to travel during this difficult time. However, we made the right decision to visit Isla Bella! The management of the resort has taken every precaution to keep the staff and guests safe. We felt very comfortable. The rooms are immaculate, and everyone wore a mask, except for eating. After check in, no one enters your room until you checkout. Clean towels are delivered to your door in a sterile plastic bag. Their procedure is really impressive. We at at the restaurant, I’ll Postino, which has a varied menu to accommodate all tastes. The ambiance is lovely, and we were able to sit on the covered patio at a safe distance from other diners. And....Isla Bella is so beautiful! The views are amazing! There are multiple pools, so no pool is ever congested. The owners and management left no stone unturned in planning this resort.. Everything is perfect! We will definitely return!

We loved almost everything about this resort! Beautiful grounds, great room set-up (two bedrooms/2 baths for two adults and two teenagers), and staff were attentive and friendly. We really liked the main pool area and spent many afternoons there after morning trips around Marathon and the other Keys. We never ate at the restaurant but enjoyed the marketplace for breakfasts and we ordered an appetizer a few times at the beach and pool bars and they were always good. They've moved to room service every 3 nights and some people really get worked up about this in their reviews. "I had to carry my own garbage 10 feet to the door!" Please. Here's a dirty little secret. We didn't have our room cleaned once! We asked them not to, but every day, I set our garbage out and called for fresh towels, more coffee pods and waters, and TP on a few occasions, and they were always brought within an hour. We liked the resort aspect of it, as in, if you didn't want to leave, you really didn't need to. That's not for everyone but we enjoyed it and the aspect of being around and meeting so many people after all this social distancing with COVID. We met many other families at the pool and playing chess, bingo and other games outside. If I had to complain about one thing, it would be the food and drink prices are a tad high. We'd get one or two very expensive drinks each at the pool a day. Also, the last few days at the pool, the great bartender disappeared and a new one appeared that was no so good. For instance, he would make drinks with dark rum when they called for light and he'd throw a huge pineapple wedge into the drink versus putting it on the edge of the cup. It was a little comical but not so much given the drink prices. Overall though, we loved it and would return, definitely!

Overall, it’s a beautiful property. The gates and grandeur of the entrance is an amazing touch. Pros: Check-in was painless , offered champagne upon arrival and towels so you can head to pool even if you arrive early. They even text you when your room is ready. Views from main area are beautiful. Several pools so always options. Rooms are large and inviting decor with an outdoor area. Yoga is offered 3x per week and there are several other daily activities to keep the whole group busy. We especially liked the life-sized chess and giant Connect Four game. Only an hour from Key West made a day trip easy! Mixed: Our room is probably the only one without a water view as it is the very last ground floor room on the property, which was disappointing, but gave it a slight positive considering COVID. It was a far walk to the main area: bar, beach, main pool. We were given the opportunity to change for the second night, but that is a hassle and not feasible with a toddler and COVID protocols. Service was sparse, but wonderfully nice people, just seemed short staffed, which is unsurprising given the talent shortage in hospitality. Drinks were pretty good; but only one bar and no service at beach area or adult pool. The beach is not pretty at all and basically mud; however, we did see staff cleaning the seaweed multiple times per day. That is great! I’ve stayed at 5 star properties in different countries who don’t do that properly. Plus, good sand castle making sand! Food is very limited and pretty basic. The Italian restaurant is overpriced and frankly not even the bread is very good. I could be judging harshly since I can get Italian from Arthur Ave back home. There is a large, beautiful marketplace, which gave some additional options from which to choose for breakfast or lunch. Panther Coffee was on point; iced latte was $7 but really good. For regular food, Isla Bella sushi roll was the only item I ordered twice- a good amount of crab and pretty tasty. Food is better off-property: lots of low key, delicious gems like Keys Fisheries and Irie Island Eats for lunch. Verdict: I would stay again, but with some changes to room location and hopefully better food options and please add more people to your hard-working staff.
