    Del Rey vs Key Largo

    Hi..I just got back from my first Costa Rica trip a week ago and I wished that I had found this website sooner! There's so much info on here that would have helped me out and I could have avoided some newbie mistakes. I only stayed 4 nights but got the opportunity to stay at the Sportsmen Lodge and Del Rey for one night each.

    I liked the rooms at SL better but Del Rey was definitely sensory overload in terms of eye-candy. I noticed that Key Largo was right across from Del Rey and part of the same ownership but didn't get a chance to go in since I was short on time. Key Largo seemed more like a bar with live music from what I saw of the outside. Do they have working girls there? What's the major different between KL and HDR? I always hear about Del Rey and Sportsmen but not as much about Key Largo when I look at forums online.

    Key Largo has live Latin American music every night and a DJ area, I enjoy the music and the dancing. 3 bars and the girls just walk back and forth, Largo is usually busier on Friday, Saturday nights, It also serves a nice dinner meal, ala carte every night for about 8 dollars. Not as busy as it used to be but still fun.

    Hotel Del Rey (HDR) and Key Largo (KL) are, in fact, owned by the same group. The two venues simply represent a way of presenting the business in two different ways. HDR is a 24/7 venue, including a hotel and casino, whereas KL is more of a weekend party venue. It's kind of difficult to say which will be busier on any given Friday or Saturday night. Fortunately, it's pretty easy to bounce back-and-forth between the two, for both the guys and the girls. The restaurant adjacent to KL -- the Del Mar -- is actually quite good. If you order food at 4 a.m. in HDR, you'll see the guy scurrying across the street with your tray, when your order is ready. I ordered the Eggs Benedict at 3 a.m. one morning in the Lobby Bar at HDR, and when my order arrived, I had to admit, "This is Pretty Damned Good!"

    The reason that you don't hear as much about KL as you hear about HDR and SL, is that KL is not a hotel. It's just a night-club. People don't talk about it as much, because it's not a place to Stay. Nevertheless, it is a venue that you want to visit in the Gulch.
