OMG This resort was sooo beautiful, the room was clean and the bedding was exceptional it was like sleeping on a cloud.. The service was great and the staff was the best., they made you feel like family. It was just one of the best getaways we've had in a very long time. It's good to know that others will read this review and feel the same way.
Thank you Glunz very much for giving us a wonderful trip to the keys..

Room tip: We were on the beach level and only 4 ft. From the sand. It was perfect.

This resort was so much more than any of us had hoped for. After searching relentlessly from ft. lauderdale down to the keys we stumbled upon The Glunz Resort and booked a garden suite. We got lucky enough to get the garden suite with a sleeper sofa which turned out perfect for our girls weekend. When we opened the door to our room we were extremely impressed with how spacious and clean the room was. The bathroom was big which works out perfect when you have ladies trying to get ready. The bedroom was seperated from the living (with a double sofa bed) and dining room with a sitting area. The kitchen had a stove and large refridgerator. Like I said it was so much more than what we had imagined. The service in the front was great and the lady by the pool area was so attentive she brought us extra towels when we were at the pool and even kept us hydrated by handing us cold waters while we relaxed in the jaccuzzi. What was even more convenient was Havana Jacks Restaurant was a walk away from our room if we wanted to grab a drink or a bite to eat. We couldnt have asked for a better place to stay. Highly recommend it!

Room tip: Garden suites for families are a great choice!

I picked the Glunz a pass through visit on my way to Key West. I arrived at the Hotel after 9 so the front desk was already closed. As I opened the door to the room a moldy pungent smell hit me right away. I later realized it was the bedspreads so we ended up not using them.

As I continued to inspect the room I found a dead cockroach in the corner, a bathroom that spelled like urine, a large scratch on the TV, sand on the tile floor and a rusted refrigerator.

After a long day of traveling we had no choice to stay since the front desk was closed and needless to say I would not recommend.

This is our second stay here in three weeks. There simply is no place we would rather be than the Glunz. The Glunz is not a hotel it's a destination. You go to the Glunz to admire the ocean, feel the breeze and enjoy the quiet surroundings of the property. There is no reason to leave once you arrive. There are two bars available to get your favorite concoctions mixed, a nice restaurant, a pristine beach, amazing pool and jacuzzi. You can enjoy the view off the beautiful pier or take your chances fishing while watching the sun rise or set. The accommodations are first rate as far as we are concerned, it's not the Four Seasons but it's the best you will find in the Keys. You do not come here to sleep or be in a room, you come here to forget and simply be. Pull up one of the 20 lounge chairs, pick a hammock or simply vegetate on the beach.  You cannot go wrong when you are on the property. 

The Glunz staff and management are simply a delight and truly do everything they can to accommodate. Their attitude matches the peaceful environment confined to this small paradise. We have become regular visitors of the Glunz, it's our quick getaway and recharging station. Most people review a location based on the room and the price point, you simply cannot do that with the Glunz. Your stay on this property is an experience on its own and deserves its own rating. There are few properties that allow you to open a door and step right onto the beach, while also providing hammocks, tables, chairs, canoes, paddle boards, shuffleboard, a gym and countless amenities that are simply a few steps away. I would sleep on the beach is they rented the space. 

Do yourself and your family a favor and book a room every chance you get. The relaxation, property and staff will work wonders for soul. This place brings out the very best in people and helps you recharge and get ready for the grind.

This is a motel, probably worse than a motel 6. Rusted refrigerator, room smells like a mix between urine and mildew. There are no bath mats or rugs just tile. The room decor is cute. The room size is probably only 12x10 with 2 queen beds....very small. The lowest AC temp is 67 f, not real cool. The shower has a few hairs left from the last guests which had to be washed down the drain. Overall I wouldn't recommend this unless the nightly rate was around $50.00. We paid 252.00 with tax.....NOT WORTH it!!
