We had a wonderful week at the Glunz! The front desk is wonderful and gave us terrific recommendations for places to visits and restaurants to try. We enjoyed the beach and pool. Highly recommend Havana Jacks next door. The wait staff is so friendly and we loved the live music. The week was filled with fun and family. Highly recommend staying here if you are looking for a laid back, relaxing getaway!
The staff and the property were wonderful. The pools are relaxing and the beach is lovely. The food at the restaurant was very good and the drinks were tasty. We will definitely be back. The location is easy to get to from Key West airport.
