The staff is a bit rude, but subtly so. There's an undertone of, "You should feel privileged to be here." But they are polite. The service is OK. It takes forever to get a request filled. The "Spa" left a lot to be desired. The masseuse was a 300 lbs local who had "earned her license", but was a total amateur and smelled like cigarettes. But the beach is beautiful and most of all there is a peaceful tranquility to the property. The water, however, is not unlike anywhere else in the Florida Keys. Just mud that you sink into up to your calves and then cannot pull out without losing the aqua socks you wore to avoid the mud in the first place. No room service, but a wonderful restaurant across the street, which is open to the public, but has a special preferential arrangement with the Moorings.
Unique Quality: The beach is beautiful and most of all there is a peaceful tranquility to the property and there's a wonderful restaurant across the street,
The Moorings is beautiful, however, their main business appears to be renting the property out as a location for a photo shoot. I have stayed multiple times and EVERY time there have been at least 3 groups of professional photo shoots going on simultaneously. As a secondary business, they apparently rent rooms. This is such a problem for them that they even have to leave a disclaimer in the rooms apologizing for the photo shoots, but then they try to justify the photo shoot disruptions as the reason the rates are so "reasonable"--laughable assertion considering the rooms run about $1,200 per night on average with a minimum 7 day stay. AVOID if you want a true high end exclusive place. If you don't mind the zoo like atmosphere on the lovely beach, it's a wonderful, beautiful beach. P.S. Except for actually getting into the water, which is pure mud.
Unique Quality: Beautiful beach. Great restaurant across the street. Quite at night when the photographer sets have all closed down.
Imagine a calm, relaxed, "do it yourself" holiday in an accommodation complex that actually looks like a small colonial village paradise, but with all the modern amenities you could ask for....very isolated, very pritvate, very chic. The staff providing very prompt, accucate, and attentive service upon your arrival, but esssentially adopting a very Europen "laissez faire" attitude towards their guests thereafter, leaving you to enjoy your time in your "plantation house" in absolute peace...if you have money set aside for the tranqil getaway of your dreams, this is might be the place for you...
