Why We Love It

  • An $11 million renovation brought in sleek, beachy, clean-lined look
  • It’s a quick walk from room to beach chair, allowing for optimal feet-in-the-sand time
  • The property offers a free-form pool overlooking the ocean
  • The Rum Runner cocktail was invented at the Tiki Bar, which originally opened in 1969 and has served several celebrities

"This iconic property has found new life” -- Fodor's

"Postcard Inn is located on the Atlantic Ocean and the view is beautiful. Although we were there in July, the evening didn't disappoint and provided a wonderful breeze by the fire pit. A perfect way to end the day. We also really enjoyed the included kayaks."

The Postcard Inn at Holiday Isle already had a reputation for having one of the most happening tiki bars in the Keys. The bar originally opened in 1969, and in 1972 on a dare, the manager invented the cocktail now known as the rum runner. The al fresco bar, beneath open, thatched-roof structures, is still a popular stop for visitors, including celebrities like Susan Sarandon and Jeff Daniels. The rest of the resort has been gussied up with an $11 million renovation that brought in a contemporary -- yet still casual -- vibe.

Rooms have nautical twists, like a headboard and bench wrapped in rope, fish artwork mounted on the wall like a fresh catch, whitewashed wood paneled walls, rustic wood furnishings, and textiles in aquatic colors. Upgraded rooms have private balconies, some overlooking the Atlantic. Five bars and restaurants serve seafood and tropical cocktails, along with sea salt air and live music. Explore the sparkling blue waters by purchasing watersport adventures departing from the resort including dive trips, fishing charters, boat rentals, Jet Ski trips and snorkeling.

From the press:
  • “After an $11-million renovation that encompassed updating everything from the rooms to the public spaces, this iconic property has found new life” -- Fodor's
  • “No trip to the Keys is complete without a stop at the Tiki Bar at the Postcard Inn” -- Frommer's

Enjoyed Most: Friendly helpful staff. Nice groomed sand and tiki shacks for shade. Warm clean pool with bar.
Other Comments: We were turned off by the design of the hall ways and rooms, but grew to be OK with it. It looks like a prison or frat party house, not appealing.

Enjoyed Most: Scenery was beautiful, many places to go eat or drink, other places nearby to the resort so you don't need to drive far for other activities.
Other Comments: We went during off season so it wasn't very busy. Nice because we were always able to get a beach chair and find seating at the restaraunts and bars.
