Sitting centralized to the Mallory Square area and the Key West harbor is the newly rebranded Opal Key Resort and Marina (formerly the Margaritaville Resort). Is only a block away from the action on Duval Street.
This AAA Four Diamond waterfront resort is just steps from Mallory Square, home of the nightly Sunset Celebration. Hundreds come out every night to watch the sun slowly set into to the emerald waters off Key West. Street vendors and performers also gather to hawk their wares and put on a show that only Key West could pull together (you might even see Spiderman or Darth Vader). The resort is also just a block from the famous Duval Street. Lined with some of the best restaurants, waterholes, shopping and art galleries that you’ll find anywhere. The marina is also home to one of three cruise ports on the island, welcoming people from around the world.
For the gourmet in all of us, the resort is home to three fantastic restaurants. Bistro 245 is a casual, indoor dining experience, with gorgeous views of Key West Harbor. Castaways is the classic pool side bar, which features a minimalists, no nonsense menu. From appetizers, salads to burgers and other sandwiches, not to mention a cocktails to die for. Lastly, is the Sunset Deck. As the name proclaims, you will have a panoramic view of the harbor and of the Key West sunsets
If you want to try something a bit different and get some of that island fever, then hop on the island ferry that will take you to Sunset Key, just across the harbor. This private island has all the amenities that you could desire.
So, when you're ready to make your escape to Key West, be sure to give them a look! Plus they have a fantastic savings deal for Key West Express passengers.
