Great position mid-Keys. Good restaurants within walking distance (we English don't see the need to drive everywhere), plus an onsite Tiki Bar for good food and live music. Lots to do in the surrounding area and easy drive to both the top and the bottom of the Keys.
RCI guests are not allowed the good suites with a view, which are reserved for Blue Green guests, especially with a vacation sampler, which we had years ago. Tiki bar new ownership has brought watery mixed drinks, and no bottled beer, only some canned off brand offerings.
