Key West days at La Concha

From Miami to Florida Keys

Curious about these little islands on a sandy narrow line over the Gulf of Mexico, we decided to move southwards to explore the last of them: Key West.

3 hours by car (keep reading to know which are the best ways to get there), one stop along the way at Islamorada and here we are: a picturesque crowded town with houses painted in pastel colors and a lovely relaxed vibe!

At a first glance Key West appears like a funfair, an inhabited amusement park. Or at least that’s from our European point of view 😅… but with its colorful houses, eccentric shops and popping signs, we couldn’t think of anything else.

On the central street that goes through most of the town, Duval Street, we find our destination: La Concha Hotel & Spa.

The style of the building and its interiors couldn’t be more different from what we saw outside: a luxury elegant style makes a sharp contrast with hotel’s host town, letting us feel home.

 

 

After a fast check-in (and after having borrowed a charger at the lobby as I had forgotten mine at Islamorada 🙈) we reach our rooms. Which, hey! they were lovely! – but it was dinner time so we had a fast shower and got back to the hall aiming to the restaurant with great expectations 😋

Everything was just so good! And I’ve got to admit this has been our experience almost anywhere we’ve been during our trip, from Canada to Florida… (who said Italian cuisine is the best?!?)

 

 

 

We had dinner at 430 Duval Restaurant, which is located at the mezzanine floor, together with its lounge, but it isn’t the only option where to have a food break! The hotel boasts also a pool bar, a juice bar and a wine bar, and even an owned Starbucks Coffee!

The top features of this hotel?
Well:

  • It’s the tallest building in Key West, so you can enjoy the already famous sunsets of Key West from a privileged spot!
  • Design, luxury taste and elegance. Where else in Key West?
  • I’ve loved the rooftop pool! Best moment of the day to go? I’ve enjoyed it at its best at night, when the last warm lights of the sunset have gone and before it closes at 9.
  • The spa, obviously!
  • Food. Have I already told you I like good, healthy vegan food? 😄  And 430 Duval has fulfilled my needs 😋
  • Location. La Concha is in Duval Street, main one in KW and a few meters from anything: the sea, the beach, restaurants, supermarkets… Also close to Mallory Square, considered the best sunset spot in the whole town (and in the entire Florida, it would seem) 🌅

 

Right a few steps away Mallory Square there’s the other property of the group: Pier House Resort & Spa, where we’ve spent some relaxing hours one afternoon (and where we’ve also experienced a tropical storm! Yay!).
Pier House has completely different vibes, a Caribbean style and a private beach! 😍

So, guys, let me know in the comments below if I’ve made you wanna visit Key West and don’t esitate to ask me any infos!
About the Miami – Key West transfer, we got there via John (a mix between a street racing badass and a friendly local guide), our Alabamian driver. Drop him an email! [boatman0711@gmail.com]

    Los Blancos, with captain Sergio Ramos suspended after deliberately collecting a yellow card in the first leg, had been looking to build on a slender 2-1 lead from that game in Amsterdam and stay on course for a potential fourth straight European triumph.

    However, after Raphael Varane’s header rattled the crossbar, Ajax raced into an early lead through Hakim Ziyech before Dusan Tadic set up David Neres for a second in the 18th minute.

    Real Madrid were forced into two changes when Lucas Vazquez and Vinicius Junior went off injured, with substitute Gareth Bale hitting the post just before half-time.

    Ajax looked to have put the tie to bed when Tadic swept in a brilliant third goal just after the hour – which was eventually given following an extensive Video Assistant Referee review to check if the ball had gone out of play in the build-up.
