Check it Out! “Oceans Edge Key West Resort, Hotel & Marina” Explicit Review

I decided to stay at "Oceans Edge Key West" because it is a 5-star luxury hotel and the area is relatively cheap. Also, because it is in key West, it had a nice view of the ocean. The only problem was that it was a little far from downtown, but it was also nice because I was able to get some peace and quiet. I really liked the atmosphere of the resort and the many pools.

In addition, the ocean is in the far back, and there are many boats floating. Looking at the ocean while enjoying a cool drink on the balcony with birds chirping in the distance was a pleasant experience.

Bathroom

There was only a shower in the bathroom. The bathroom was cleaned very well.

The shower room had a glass door, so I didn’t have to worry about water splashing.

The shower head was fixed on the wall, and the water pressure was slightly weak, but it was enough for me. It took a while for hot water to come out. However, once the hot water came out, it came out stably.

Shampoo, conditioner and shower gel were prepared in the shower room. It was nice to be able to use a lot of soap on my sticky and sandy hair from playing at the beach.

A lot of sofas and cabanas were prepared around the pool and they can be used for free. Bath towels and cold water were also provided, and I was able to spend a very pleasant time. You can also enjoy your meal under the cabana.
