Living in South Florida is almost like being on vacation 24/7. That is with the exception of having to go to work. When I’m looking for a little R&R no staycation quite compares to the Florida Keys. Located just a few hours south the proximity is perfect for a weekend getaway that makes you feel like you’ve transported to a Caribbean island. Each Key has it’s own unique feel and one of my favorites to visit is Key West.
As much as I love to travel I hate leaving my fur baby behind. Fortunately I had the pleasure of staying at one of the most incredible dog friendly resorts, Havana Cabana. They truly offer everything you could ever need and so much more.
It comes as no surprise that Havana Cabana was recently voted as the third best hotel in Florida in Travel & Leisure 2019 World’s Best Awards.
The resort amenities include free parking, wifi, pool towels and access to the fitness and business center. I loved that Havana Cabana provided a free shuttle service that takes you directly into downtown Key West. They also offer bicycle and Vespa rentals with scooter rentals at $55 for 24 hours. The Vespa’s give you that true retro island feel as you adventure around Key West.
For a small pet fee Havana Cabana gladly welcomes four legged friends under 50lbs and offer a goodie bag upon arrival. The goodie bag includes a portable water bowl, floor mat, doggie cookie, oopsie baggies and clip on bag dispenser. Dogs are welcome in most spaces in the hotel with the exception of the actual pool and hot tub.
Havana Cabana’s hotel lobby is decorated with colorful Cuban inspired murals, comfortable couches and an Instagram worthy bench swing. A grand set of double staircases take you to the upper level rooms.
The massive waterfall spills into the biggest pool in all of Key West.
The lobby opens up onto an expansive lush outdoor space. The massive waterfall spills into the biggest pool in all of Key West. Misters, tropical plants and coconut palms give the space a true tropical resort like feel. Plenty of lounge chairs, hammocks as well as daybeds are provided for guests to relax in. In addition large couches under a birds nest style cocoon are available to reserve for larger parties. Complementary smoothies, popsicles and non alcoholic mojitos are offered throughout the day as you lounge.
There is a large bar that offers 17 different mojito flavors with something for everyone. Classic frozen drinks and cocktails are also available with happy hour from 4-5pm every day. If you get hungry the Floridita food truck is located under the tiki hut. They offer Cuban style bites throughout breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The tiki hut also has a fooseball table, corn hole and giant jenga. Plenty of tables and comfortable seating to hang out while you eat or enjoy a drink.
