To those of you who are already big fans of our beautiful resort, you won’t be surprised to learn that TripAdvisor– the internet’s largest authority on hotel reviews– has awarded Parrot Key Hotel & Resort a Certificate of Excellence for 2012! We’re all very proud to share this with you, and want to extend a big thank you to our loyal customers and fans. It’s you who have taken the time to share your positive reviews of our beautiful hotel. We are so grateful that we have the best customers in the business! Celebrate this award with us today.
We’ll set the scene for you: It’s Monday morning, you’re relaxing in your hotel room, and you realize what so many vacationers before you have also come to understand… you don’t want to leave.
While normally, the call of the real world might prove to strong too ignore, we feel that exceptions should be made on a holiday weekend. Especially one where you’re currently shacked up in paradise. So, as a special offer to our guests who’d like to extend their vacation a little longer, we’ve come up with a deal we feel might make the return to reality a little less painful. For this Memorial Day, any guest room may choose to depart our hotel on Monday morning a full seven hours later than they would normally need to– for only $100.00. That means that instead of your usual 11:00am checkout time, you’ll be able to sit back, relax, and enjoy the property (and your hotel room!) until 6:00pm that evening.
This offer is only valid for Monday, May 28th– so take advantage of it while it’s here! Ask your friendly front desk agent to arrange the details for you.
Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
We have been seeing unseasonable cold weather the last couple of days, with nighttime temperatures falling below 60°F two nights in a row, but starting today it should start to warm up again. It is currently 61°F at Parrot Key, but is expected to hit 70°F by midday. Tonight should be around 63°F and by tomorrow things should be back around 75°F. Anyone prepared for cold and windy ocean conditions can be expected to have great fishing tomorrow through the weekend, as fish get more energetic with the warming weather. Sunset tonight is at 6:20 pm, expect festivities at Mallory Square to start around 5:00.
It’s 83°F and sunny with 13 mph wind from the East today in Key West, and the sailfish are running! Good catches have been reported by almost all charters, and with the World Sailfish Championship only 9 days away the season is looking really spectacular. Tarpon are also still around in abundance in the flats and backcountry; anyone who goes out with an experienced guide is almost assured of hooking into a monster.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! It’s 71°F and sunny with light wind today at Parrot Key, whether you’re Irish or just like having a good time, today’s weather will be perfect for celebrating the holiday outside.
It is 71°F and partly sunny today at Parrot Key. Wind is coming from the East at 9mph. Sunset tonight will be at 7:36 PM. Sunset Festival activities will begin around 5:30 down at historic Mallory Square.
Warm weather has once again brought the tarpon back in force. Good catches have been reported all around Key West, with almost every boat getting hooked into large fish. Favorable tides, light winds and warm weather are predicted until Saturday, which means good fishing should continue all week.
Tarpon season has officially begun in Key West. Warm weather has raised water temperatures and baitfish are in abundance. The tarpon are feeding heavily in the backcountry and flats. Tarpon are one of the strongest sports fish in the Keys, prized for their powerful hits and arm wrenching fights full of jumps and runs. They can be hooked on the fly or traditional gear all over the flats and backcountry. Either way, this will be the fight of your life. Parrot Key staff will be happy to help you reserve a trip with the very best guides in the Keys.
It’s a beautiful day at Parrot Key today, 70°F and sunny with some small clouds. This is perfect weather for tanning, walking around the city, or ocean sports. If you do go fishing these are conditions that are great for all three mackerel species, or for trying to pick up some tuna. Reef fishing will be a little harder because the wind is blowing at a steady 14 mph, so chop might make some it difficult for those who get seasick.
Tonight sunset is at 6:21 PM, the sunset performances will start around 4:30.
