I've never been to Key Largo and I'm a little overwhelmed by all the hotel options. I'd like to stay in a hotel that is central and gives me good sense of what Key Largo is like. I'd love to know where locals tell their friends to stay when they visit, and why those areas and hotels are special. thanks!
I live in Key Largo and would suggest staying at the Key Largo Bay Marriott Beach Resort. It is central to everything. Has 3 restaurants/bars in the hotel and you can walk to the Caribbean Club and the Big chill. You can do diving, snorkeling and fishing trips from the hotel as well. They have a pool and a nice beach.
