Four Florida Keys Resorts Earn Top Honors in Travel + Leisure's Readers' 15 Favorite Resorts in Florida

Four Florida Keys resorts have earned esteemed recognition in Travel + Leisure's "World’s Best Awards" survey for 2023, as they were ranked among Florida's top 10 of 15 favorite resorts. The resorts are:

  • Little Palm Island Resort & Spa on Little Torch Key, which topped the list.
  • Marquesa Key West, the second favorite.
  • Ocean Key Resort & Spa, ranked eighth.
  • Playa Largo Resort & Spa, Autograph Collection in Key Largo, which was ranked ninth.

This noteworthy accolade was based on readers' ratings, considering criteria like rooms and facilities, location, service, food, and value. Little Palm Island Resort & Spa was particularly commended for its secluded, adults-only environment, complete with 30 suites within 15 thatched-roof bungalows, situated on a private four-acre islet. The resort is characterized as a Caribbean hideaway and its Dining Room restaurant upholds the "barefoot luxury" ethos. Meanwhile, Marquesa Key West and Ocean Key Resort & Spa, both Nobel House Hotels & Resorts properties, as well as Playa Largo Resort & Spa, collectively reflect the luxurious accommodations available throughout the beautiful locales of the Florida Keys. These resorts contribute to Florida's appeal as a year-round destination with its sunny weather, picturesque beaches, and versatile activities. The annual Travel + Leisure survey witnessed nearly 165,000 respondents in 2023, marking a near 25% increase compared to pre-pandemic levels. Over 685,000 votes were cast across more than 8,500 unique properties.
