Must-See Attractions In Key Largo The Whole Family Will Love

It's no secret that I love to travel, but sometimes it's hard to find a place that checks all the boxes. I like a resort that feels luxurious, but has a laid back vibe. I want to feel comfortable and stress-free, and not shush my kids because of a pretentious vibe (have you experienced that?). It seems like any "family-friendly" hotel nowadays is lacking in other departments, like food & accommodations. Well, that is totally not the case with Playa Largo Resort & Spa in Key Largo. My family and I were hosted recently, and I did a segment on Great Day Live Tampa Bay with my favorite staycation spots in South Florida. Playa Largo Resort & Spa is definitely a destination that your entire family will love.

Keep reading to see why we love Playa Largo, and our favorite local attractions too!

The Resort: Only An hour south of Miami down Florida’s sun-soaked highways sits Playa Largo Resort & Spa, an Autograph Collection Hotel. This resort off mile marker 97 occupies 14 acres of prime beachfront real estate. Bringing a taste of the outdoors in, the guest rooms feature unparalleled views of the Florida Bay and natural materials like Capiz shells, driftwood and coral rock.

Unique Resort Attractions:

Nightly Eventide Celebration: Every night at sunset, the resort has the most incredible ritual, right on the beach. The ritual includes writing down your worries, lighting them on fire, and setting them out to sea! All guests are invited and are welcome to complimentary Pineapple filled cocktails and mocktails, live music, and warm ocean breezes. It is truly spectacular!

Fire Pits & S'mores: You can purchase a s'mores kit and sit by the communal fire pit, or (for a fee) get your own private fire pit. Right after Eventide, after the sun goes down, you can enjoy a s'more on the beach with your family, it's the perfect way to end the day!

Life-size Chess: My kids were occupied for a good hour with this! My husband and I dined Al Fresco at La Marea, Playa Largo's Italian Restaurant, while the kids played chess. It was perfect!

Ocean Spa: I enjoyed a blissful facial while my husband tended to the kids (hey, it's been a rough year!). My experience started with a refreshing hibiscus iced tea and a bite of spiced dark chocolate. I received the Key Lar-Glow Facial. Filter-free selfies are the new trend with their Dr. Barbor Perfect Glow regimen. My therapist started with an AHA peeling gel which helps to banish dull skin, next she used P-G ampuole optically evens out irregularities with glow pigments. Afterwards she applied a silver foil face mask, and a quartz roller facial massage which created a flawless finish. I glowed for days and days after my facial!
