Havana Cabana

Key West, Florida Keys

The hotel

Life here couldn’t be simpler: swim, sunbathe, sip poolside cocktails, swim again. Havana Cabana Key West is a place to escape it all, although the fabulous concierge service will happily help arrange trips out to experience the rest of island life – whether it’s golf, beaches, or a bar crawl – if doing nothing does nothing for you. The unique spirit of Cuba is reflected at Havana Cabana, from the dining to the decor. The largest freshwater pool in Key West comes complete with a rock waterfall, a hot tub, and a Cuban-style pool bar serving suitably tropical cocktails.

I visited Havana Cabana for one night in April 2021. It was by far the best experience I have ever had during a hotel stay. The staff was exceptional. Cindy and Kendra were welcoming, accommodating and so pleasant to work with throughout our stay. The shuttle drivers were witty, funny and went above and beyond to educate us about the island and provided the best tourist recommendations. The resort was beautiful and clean. The pool was amazing and very relaxing. The corn hole, ping pong table and large jenga puzzle were an added bonus. Having the ability to shuttle to their sister hotel for beach access was an added surprise. I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Key West. I cannot wait to return and spend more time here. Thank you to everyone who made this a memorable trip for me and my friends! When I return, I definitely want to take the private tour in one of the chevy’s! Read less

We stayed here on a trip to Key West, Feb 2021, with friends to celebrate Valentine's Day and a few "milestone" birthdays. A great resort, great restaurant, great bar, great staff, and great grounds. Annette and Rose, at the front desk were so very helpful and accommodating. Nick and Hamilton at pool, were wonderful, as well. While you are there, DO NOT miss the island tour in one of the '57 Chevy's they have on site. Amy, who provides the tour, is exceptional and soooooo knowledgeable, and interesting. She made the tour so fun and interesting. Even my husband was happily surprised and pleased. And did I mention it's COMPLIMENTARY! Yes, FREE! So, it's a must do, while there, if you miss it, you're lame! LOL! Another perk, there is a shuttle that takes you downtown (or the even the airport at your departure day) and runs like every 15 min which makes it so convenient to get around. We did Uber a few times to meet friends, and it wasn't too pricey, but still, worth saving the $14 bucks and taking the shuttle when you can. Read less

We stayed here and the sister property this week. Amazing staff- thank you Cindy, Rose and Nick for your exceptional customer service at Havana Cabana! They keep this experience the best in the keys. The pool is the best in Key West, the drinks and food are amazing in this great vibe. We will be back!!

We checked in on the later side (6:00 pm) due to a flight delay.. when attempting to check in, we were told that we needed to come back 20 minutes later due to an issue with the checkin system. We were told that we can enjoy your drink at the bar while we waited. When checking back with the front desk an hour later, we were told that the system was still not working and we were given a voucher for 2 drinks at the bar and told to check back in 30-40 minutes. Upon doing this, we were told that the system was still down and were given a voucher for two meals at the bar and told to check back later. The menu is very limited and the food was very terrible in terms of quality and taste. We ordered burgers, fries and shrimp cocktail. After eating, we checked back in with the front desk and were finally given our room keys. We had planned to go out for dinner that night into town but we’re too tired and too hungry after not having eaten anything else all day. We both woke up the next morning with food poisoning and it took until early afternoon before we could go anywhere thus losing nearly a full day away at this very expensive hotel. The room that we had was of fair to good quality (I travel a lot) but the water pressure was poor. The pool was nice and the concierge was helpful in terms of setting up activities. We did however lose nearly a full day (and some weight) after the dining experience. We’re very disappointed. Read less
