Default Where to stay in the Keys?

We are getting married in June and would like to spend a week in the Keys. Looking for places, resorts or areas we should look at or avoid. Thanks for any info.

Marathon is great that time of the year, especially if you want to do any fishing (might not be possible since it's you honeymoon). The tarpon are running under the 7 mile bridge, and the APBA race is usually there in early June/late May.

Here ya go. These are the only nice large hotels in the Keys. The rest are small rather homey motels.
Like this one..Hotel is on the bay side.

We loved this place. I'd go back in a heartbeat. Hotel is on the ocean side. Swim with the dolphins at the hotel.

This is also very nice and secluded. About a mile south of the Marriot. Hotel is on the bay side.

This is probably the newest in the keys. Real close to Pennecamp to go diving or snorkeling. Hotel is on the bay side.

Real nice, on the ocean side, very pricey.

Fly to Fort Lauderdale (avoid Miami) and take the 2.5 hour drive to Marathon. It's wonderful.........

We stayed in Islamorada at the Chesapeake Resort for 3 days of our honeymoon. Nice place except for the office had water damage from something, But the rest of the place was nice. On the Ocean. The view from our room was beautiful...palm tree and the ocean. Heres a picture of our view!!
