Enjoy one of the 200 guestrooms and suites at the beachfront Hilton Key Largo Resort, each offering stunning views of the Florida Keys. Families can choose from rooms with one king bed or two double beds, or a suite with one bedroom with a king bed and a sofa bed. All come with in-room mini-fridges, coffee makers, Internet and flat-screen TV’s. Most rooms come with balconies, too. Request a crib at no extra charge if needed.
Head to the beach for a day in the sand or opt for one of the two heated pools. The resort offers bicycle rentals, fishing, jet skiing, sailing, snorkeling, windsurfing and tennis courts. Families can set up sight seeing tours through the property, as well. The ScoutAbout program will have your kids running around the resort discovering special areas, such as the Strangler Fig Tree, the Seagrape Tree or spots with curly-tailed lizards. Collect color-coded ScoutAbout bands along the way and wear them with pride. Snap a photo of each spot and upload to the resort’s Facebook page for a chance to be the Top Scout of the Week and to make the ScoutAbout Wall of Fame.
When it’s time for breakfast, lunch or dinner, enjoy Treetops Bar & Grill, which is open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. and serves up a variety of flavors from the Caribbean and the Mediterranean. Grab lunch at a poolside spot like the Splashes Pool Bar or Waves Beach Bar — open daily from 11:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. respectively. Room service is also available from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. Children’s menus are available.
The Hilton Key Largo Resort also offers families pet-friendly accommodations, onsite laundry facilities, a business center with printers and copiers and a gift shop for souvenirs.

The resort itself is amazing. Amazing views, amazing location, etc. But I think the employees make a place special, not the structures and views. The employees here acted like it was an inconvenience to work. Gave the bartender a generous tip and she didn't say thanks. Watched two bartenders argue. Gave us some one elses' food and didn't even apologize to the poor guy that got just half of his food. Free drink was a joke. They were beyond slow and in no hurry while the line just got longer and longer. We had to walk through employees playing a game of toss with a football. The beach is too small to be whipping around a football while people are trying to walk by. Let alone it being employees.
This resort delivers on everything. My food was great the staff was just so friendly and accommodating. The drinks were awesome the beach in the pool were wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay.
