The Capitana Key West, Key West’s newest boutique hotel inspired by the famous shipwrecks that dot the shores off the Florida Keys, has officially opened.

The Capitana Key West, Key West’s newest boutique hotel that opened just this February, is inspired by the famous shipwrecks that dot the shores off the Florida Keys. Not only do you see that in its name (it’s named after the famous shipwreck from Spain’s 1733 Armada known as “La Capitana” or “Capitana El Rubi Segundo”), but in the way the hotel suddenly appears like a tropical oasis and the perfect anchor for exploring the colorful and storied town of Key West.

STAY: Boutique Accommodations of All Shades

A King Bedroom at The Capitana Key West

A range of accommodations are available for your choosing, from the two-bedroom private cottages to beautifully appointed rooms and suites in the main hotel. All come complete with furnished balconies that feature fabulous water views of Key West’s bay; breezy and casual, chic island-inspired design; plush robes; and all the modern amenities discerning travelers expect.

EAT: An Opulence of Options


In addition to a daily breakfast spread and grab-and-go essentials at the Sundry Market, the resort is also home to the poolside McKee’s Tiki Bar, serving up a menu of island favorites including sandwiches, salads, and several options for basket platters. If looking to venture for eats beyond the walls of the resort, look no further than our other Key West resort restaurant’s worth their salt: Latitudes at Sunset Key Cottages and Bistro 245 at Opal Key Resort & Marina.

PLAY: Activities, Attractions & Adventures at Your Doorstep

The Cottage Deck at The Capitana Key West

Located on Trumbo Point on the eastern side of the island, the resort’s central location means Key West’s best activities, attractions, and adventures are just steps in every direction from your door. So the hardest part won’t be finding something to do, but what to do first, from the legendary sunset celebrations at Mallory Square each evening to shopping the many retail options in Old Town to the reverential visit to the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum.



For the utmost privacy and signature Key West style, book one of the resort’s nine Cottage accommodations. It’s like having your own private home in the Keys with waterfront views, two king bedrooms, premium amenities, and furnished decks. A dedicated pool and hot tub are also available exclusively for guests, offering more privacy and space to soak up the signature Florida Keys sunshine. So stay a weekend, a month, or, heck, make it your Key West winter residence.
